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.
Romana Valji and Salima Nazir have been friends for a decade now, and Sanam's Boutique & Salon —named after Nazir's daughter—represents the blossoming of their bond since they emigrated from Pakistan in 2007. The dream began in their homes, where they designed elegant, richly embroidered shirtdresses and gowns. After a family friend announced she was having a baby and needed someone to help manage her fledgling salon, Nazir and Valji fused both businesses into the beauty haven that it is today.
In the bright front room—where lights resembling movie-set lamps spotlight mod black leather chairs—stylists use Goldwell products to create lush, long layers and glamorous blowouts. A semicircular cutout in the far wall reveals a shelf of OPI polish in the nailcare nook, where a cushy pedicure throne presides over a white table with UV lamps for curing Shellac manicures. One room in back reveals racks of Nazir and Valji's flowing, jewel-toned robes, which they encrust with floral-patterned kora and dabka according to their own taste or alter the shape, material, and color to suit their clients' wishes for elegant gowns or bespoke burlap sacks. The other chamber hides a comfortable table for massages and a diamond-microdermabrasion machine used by the staff's aesthetician in tandem with products from the Parisian skincare line Yon-Ka.
Champions of beautifying faces and bodies via noninvasive, advanced technologies, Renew Beauty Med Spa’s highly knowledgeable staff of medically trained and accredited physicians, nurses, and aestheticians spends their waking hours obsessing over how to better others’ skin. The staff upholds their desire to remain on the cutting edge of new procedures and products through hours of meticulous research, showcasing their findings by constantly updating the spa’s menu of services. Evidence of the team’s shared ambition can be found as they work their aesthetic magic in five offices everyday, removing unwanted hirsute patches via laser hair removal or expunging coffee, wine, and grass stains from grins during teeth-whitening sessions. As firm believers that a glowing complexion requires a commitment to healthy decisions, the team works hard to equip their patients with a posttreatment maintenance plan.
To the professional staff members of LaserPro MedSpa, educating their clients on their FDA-approved lasers and advanced skin services is as pivotal to their treatment as the products and procedures employed. Knowledgeable technicians speak with clients over the phone or through email before booking any appointments to answer lingering questions about microdermabrasion or body contouring, or to swap opinions on celebrity hairstyles. When discussing treatment results, technicians ensure clients envision an obtainable outcome that enhances their natural beauty, not a lofty goal that may be impossible to reach.
With thousands of satisfied clients across Ontario, Hairfree Laser Skin Clinics continues to help men and women achieve their ideal looks using advanced cosmetic technologies that are safe for men and women with all skin types. A buffet of services greets arrivals, from laser hair removal and photo facials to vein treatments and teeth whitening. A product line boasting antioxidants and exfoliating acids helps maintain desired looks at home, and the trained staff works with client goals to help eliminate problem areas, even if they ask nicely to stick around.
