At iSilhouette, techs unholster ultrasound-spraying hand pieces to help clients shuck layers of fat, leaving behind slender frames without resorting to surgery. The sleek black devices send the waves deep into unwanted fat cells, destroying them. The body then metabolizes these broken cells, flushing them out through the lymphatic system and leaving skin firmer and smoother than a seal training for Mr. Universe. Apart from the headlining slimming treatment, the onsite spa delivers a host of other beautifying and relaxing services, such as massages and facials, as well as hairstyling services that include foil highlights, straightening, and formal updos.
Settled among the meadows and river of its rural surroundings, Spagarage takes its moniker from its transformation from an automotive garage into the oasis of tranquility it is today. Born out of owner Vincent's passion for styling, the salon-spa welcomes patrons with a slew of services focused on the development of modern styles, highlighting, and colour diagnostic and repair. Before emigrating to Canada from London, England in the 1970s—otherwise known as polka's golden age—Vincent honed his hair-sculpting skills at the Vidal Sassoon Academy’s renowned Bond Street salon. Vincent continues to refresh his knowledge with supplemental classes at the Academy’s other outposts in New York, Los Angeles, and Paris. In between running the salon and raising his two young children well above his head to build strength, Vincent is also at work developing his own organic, locally produced shampoo and conditioner.
As the aestheticians and nail technicians at Green DragonFly Aesthetics beautify clients with custom facials, waxing, and mani-pedis using all-natural products, they consider sanitation, hygiene, and safety are of utmost importance. As a division of the Kingston Foot and Ankle Clinic, they follow the same medical-grade sterilization protocols and methods to ensure their guests enjoy safe pampering. Each of their all-natural products—including Colorevolution Mineral Makeup and Pink Himalayan Salt soaps—is free of harmful chemicals. When the staff members aren't rejuvenating complexions with microdermabrasion or decorating fingers and toes with manicures and pedicures, they also accentuate guests' natural beauty with permanent makeup.
As a former biochemist for Nestl?, Cher-Mere Day Spa's founder Cheryl Bowles knows all about what consumers put in their bodies?and how that affects them. So, when she transitioned from the corporate world to the spa industry, she committed herself to using only organic and natural skincare products free of parabens, sulfates and other harsh chemicals.
The products used by Cher-Mere Day Spa are just as gentle on clients' skin as they are on the environment; they're made using solar power and are packaged with postconsumer recyclable material.
Guests escaping to the serenity of City Spa 560 find themselves in a sunlit oasis where experts lavish them with facials, massage therapy, and nailcare. Roughly textured brick walls flank two seating areas furnished with leather sofas, abstract paintings, invisible abstract paintings, and caf?-style tables. Shelves of purchasable products and manicure stations strewn with colourful polishes pop against accent walls of teal and green, and a cushioned corner of pedicure chairs makes it easy for groups of four to gab.
The Green Bath and Beauty Company beautifies women of all ethnicities with a repertoire of eco-friendly aesthetic services that use Canadian-made products, including formulations from Ella's Botanicals, Pure Anada Natural Cosmetics, Dimpleskins, and Sappho Organic Cosmetics. Aside from skincare, aestheticians also offer mani-pedis, lash extensions, and waxing. Many of the spa's treatments use only vegan products that have not been tested on animals or sentient mannequins.
