LM Beauty Clinic and Just Nails and More are two separate businesses with one common goal: to enhance natural beauty through treatments for the skin and nails. Both locations revitalize complexions with botanical emollients. For instance, fruit pulp—an essential ingredient of the grape wine peel—catalyzes exfoliation while it feeds skin a healthy blend of polyphenol nutrients, antioxidants, and peeled grapes. LM Beauty Clinic takes its skincare options one step further, adding concentrated light or radiofrequency energy to tighten skin or diminish cellulite. Aestheticians at each business amplify lashes with real mink extensions, enhance eyes with permanent makeup, or strengthen nails with a choice of three odour-free, non-yellowing gel nails.
At Rejuvederme, clients can make fresh starts with noninvasive cosmetic procedures and the guidance of a cosmetic physician and a nurse. The physician meets with clients for complimentary consultations to determine skincare needs and possible treatments. After consultations, the staff recommends services to tone, de-fuzz, or clarify skin with noninvasive lasers and Obagi Skincare products.
The clinic has the modern, spacious feel of a hotel lobby: A frosted glass wall divides the front desk from the waiting area, which then opens to private treatment rooms. Brightening the palette of white and mint, vases brim with birds of paradise, palm fronds, and spider mums.
Hair extension expert and master colourist Amy Beaulieu transforms manes with 100% human hair extensions and L’Oréal professional products, a forte that has garnered her national attention and an on-air interview with Daytime Toronto. She flexes her hair-beautifying muscles inside her own salon, Art In Hair, where hair extensions, bowls of hair dye, and straightening formulas help customers look even more elegant than a thoroughbred racehorse wearing a tuxedo.
The medical professionals at California Laser seek to revamp clients' epidermal terrain with a full menu of treatments administered with specialized equipment. During the clinic's laser hair-removal treatments, a LightSheer system targets unwelcome body fur with pulses of highly concentrated light and several veiled threats. Operated by a trained laser technician, the machine's beams penetrate hair strands to their dermal roots, thus damaging heat-absorbing follicles and impeding regrowth. The procedure goes by quickly, should result in only minimal discomfort, and can effectively reduce body tresses on both hirsute humans and undercover werewolves.
Premier Medical Spa's board-certified plastic surgeons and nurses skillfully administer dermal fillers that help restore lost volume and firmness to skin. After a personal consultation and quick game of peekaboo, skilled medical practitioners inject a single dermal filler syringe directly below the skin on the desired treatment area. Clients can opt to plump up lips and lessen the downward slant of corners; fill in lines, wrinkles, and folds on facial areas; or diminish the appearance of acne scars. During treatments—which usually last less than an hour—a clear gel infused with hyaluronic acid bolsters volume and restores hydration to skin. Patients can also choose to have the skin smoothers coat their faces in topical aesthetic cream, apply an anaesthetic dental block, or transform into a giant cotton ball to increase comfort during the procedure. Faces' new, youthful appearances last 6–12 months, and the procedure results in minimal downtime, allowing clients to immediately return to their daily activities. Clients should arrive 15 minutes early to have time to relax in the lounge area and fill out a medical-history form.
At the Oakville location, the patient stylists at Melonhead Children's Hair Care trim tyke's tresses against a backdrop that's the very enemy of boredom: a brightly embellished arcade-style studio that comes furnished with toys, colouring books, games, and movies. Even the products underscore Melonhead's total commitment to catering to young hair growers. Locally crafted shampoos and conditioners cleanse and nourish scalps with gentle botanicals that prevent tears and early on-set tentacle growth. The staff also invites kids to don a colourful haircut cape and take the reigns of a pony or focus on landing the bright blue airplane upon which they are perched. A jovial selection of kinder-geared TV shows and movies can also harness each tot's focus. This allows the experienced stylists to focus on a stationary head, often impossible in other salons where young clients demand to go play outside or passionately debate which part of a tax audit is the best part of a tax audit.
