Massage therapy and nail care meet ultrasonic and laser treatments at Spa at the Madison, a boutique spa where trained aestheticians help guests feel their best. Facial Zone treatments, designed to annihilate blemishes and soothe lips, are plucked from an à la carte menu so patrons can assemble their own packages, and St. Tropez custom spray tans bronze bodies naturally in about an hour. For the Y-chromosome set, specially designed facials, waxing, and nail care as well as the placement of cucumber slices on moustaches prep gentlemen for special events.
Eccotique Spas beautify the denizens of Vancouver with soothing, often earth-friendly products, practices, and services in an easygoing manner that truly befits its West Coast style. For clients whose faces are covered in skin rather than a flaky butter crust, Eccotique flaunts a line-up of facials to suit nearly every type, tone, and texture. The Outer Peace Acne Relief facial treats acne symptoms and causes, preventing future pore prison breaks, and the Beyouthful facial helps manage aging epidermis. In lieu of at-home belt-sander treatments, Eccotique soothes wizened visages with a Radiant Resurfacing facial, smoothing skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines. All facials last one hour, and are administered by Eccotique's trained staff.
With dramatic chandeliers, sweeping curves of dark wood, and full-length mirrors, Telio Hair Studio doesn’t look like a barbershop. But it still aims to make men feel comfortable getting a precision haircut—or, for that matter, a scalp massage, sports pedicure, or other treatment from a full list of men’s services. Even in the midst of luxurious spa services, such as aromatic plant-based facials and toning anti-aging treatments, staff maintain a welcoming atmosphere toward all guests, giving trims to even the tiniest tots who aren’t losing their baby hair quickly enough. In addition to its home base in a North Vancouver bungalow, the studio recently opened a second location just down the road from the Sperling SkyTrain station in Burnaby.
Instead of featuring pristine white washbasins and shelves of flowery shampoos, the dude-centric space at Team Clips Hair Cuts is filled with pro jerseys mounted to the walls, a cooler stocked with soft drinks, and PS3 games available to guests while they wait. Standing atop a floor painted like a football field, stylists perform swift and simple haircuts, sweetening these standard services with add-ons such as a hot towel, beard trimming, or gentle scalp massage. Guests can keep one eye on the mirror, one eye on an HDTV airing sports in front of their chair, and one eye in their pocket to keep as a spare. Though primarily geared toward men, Team Clips also offers snips for children and cuts and styling services for women.
Using body-slimming and skincare technology, LeSante Spa & Beauty's staff of aestheticians strives to beautify and increase their clients' overall wellbeing. Their facial services rely on the radiofrequency, microcurrent, and intense pulsed light treatments, but they also pamper faces with more traditional means with exfoliating cleanses and nourishing creams during the European facial. To help clients slim down, they use ultrasound cavitation, radiofrequency, and dry saunas to detoxify and eliminate fatty tissue, a more effective means than buying a centrifuge in the hopes of spinning it off. The power of heat is harnessed for weight loss as well, with the thermo c system heating and kneading away unwanted fat.
Bottles of PCA Skin and Dermalogica products are aplenty inside Aura Skin Care & Laser Services, where skilled estheticians provide clinical facials, as well as restore vibrancy in skin during microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels. For those looking for an all-over change, Aura Skin Care also offers body-shaping services, such as non-invasive body cavitation treatments that eliminate fat in the body where even workouts can't reach.
