Unique Skincare Spa & Salon's menu is a balance of aesthetic services and wellness treatments. The team's specialty is treating blemishes, age spots, and other pigmentation issues, which they do with custom facials that might involve medicated acne masks or high-frequency treatments. Peels––both chemical and organic––and microdermabrasion target more intense problems, and facial bleaching can help reverse advanced hyperpigmentation or dark purple wine stains. Aestheticians put the finishing touches on faces with waxing and threading services, and nail technicians give hands and feet similarly lavish attention with french manicures, spa pedicures, and paraffin dips.
Those seeking internal therapy can opt for one of eight women's body treatments, which include hot-stone massage and full-body scrubs. Ear candling is a natural method for extracting built-up wax, and bio-energizer therapy furthers the detoxification process by encouraging the expulsion of toxins from throughout the body.
Helen relies on sophisticated technology such as bipolar radio frequencies and ultrasound to fight wrinkles and other dermal imperfections on her clients' faces and bodies. Radio frequency treatments can be used to stimulate collagen regeneration, which in turn leads to tighter skin and a better defense against the pinches of nosy aunts. Ultrasound treatments also work to tighten the skin by targeting the deep, subbasement of the dermis and strengthening the connective tissue therein. Helen also offers traditional cleansing facials and chemical peels, along with waxing services and Reiki energy therapy.
At Golden Wave Spa, staff members strive to provide each client with a relaxing, peaceful experience. That’s why they’ve created a soothing, oasis-like atmosphere where men, women, and overheated camels can enjoy a huge array of pampering treatments. From mineral salt scrub therapy to signature facials and eyelash extensions, the spa’s services beautify visitors from head to foot.
Aesthetician Maryam Ghany had been searching for ways to enhance her eyelashes when she discovered extensions in 2008. Thrilled by the prospect of beating Bambi's batting average, she earned an advanced certification as an eyelash-extension technician the same year, and opened MyLash Canada 12 months later. Ghany has been an aesthetician since 1999, experience that gives her special insight into skincare and evinces her love of working with people—she describes her clients as "royalty."
Currently, she pours her expertise into recruiting highly educated technicians for her team, and teaching seminars that train new technicians in eye health and safety as well as the artistic application of extensions. The experts use a Health Canada–approved adhesive that makes lashes stay put for two to four weeks and never touches the skin, nixing the need to apply mascara or brush lashes against oiled bicycled chains.
At Vera Medi-Spa and Salon, beauty isn't the ultimate goal; it’s merely a step in the staff's ongoing quest to help boost each client's self-esteem. To help customers feel more comfortable in their own skin, the spa's professionals wield Palomar laser technology to banish unwanted hair or clear away unsightly veins, age spots, and other imperfections. Those looking to repair their love-hate relationship with an outdated hairdo or glued-on top hat can put their heads in the hands of the salon's stylists, who update strands with L'Oréal Professionnel Matrix and colour products. Because stress can have a large impact on well-being, the spa invites guests to put their feet up during relaxing mani-pedis or lie down to enjoy the tension-taming benefits of an aromatherapy massage, and facials help erase signs of tension on the face with anti-aging benefits from Guinot products.
Cosmetic care that stops at the surface is only fighting half the battle. This is the philosophy of the staff at Eternal Wellness MedSpa & Salon, and its various aestheticians and technicians aim to rejuvenate and revitalize clients' spirits with their beauty services. To do so, they incorporate traditional spa techniques, such as Swedish and deep-tissue massage, with medical-grade products and technology. A cosmetic laser system and Vibraderm exfoliating machine fit right in with the center's arsenal of aesthetic equipment, which also includes infrared light skin-tightening devices. Colon hydrotherapy machines and 21-day cleanses help clients shed weight and toxins. Even something as straightforward as a new hairstyle or freshly polished set of nails can revitalize spirits and give clients the confidence they need to finally assemble their home's particle accelerator.
