Light Touch Med Spa's experienced, licensed, and certified laser technicians wield FDA- and CSA-approved equipment to improve the natural aesthetics of their patients. Infrared lights beam over sagging skin, tightening areas by penetrating the deep tissue and stimulating collagen growth. Fine lines and wrinkles are diminished under the micropulses of lasers and radio waves, and intense pulsed light and lasers tackle superficial and deeper leg veins. No matter the treatment, clients can take advantage of free consultations to learn more about their procedure and get close enough to the laser technicians to call them Punkin'.
Bellagio Beauty & Day Spa knows how to set the mood. During an array of couples services, duos bask in the intimate ambiance of a candlelit room outfitted with side-by-side beds, a whirlpool tub, and a shower. But the spa attendants certainly don't neglect solo clients. Individuals can receive soothing aromatherapy massages or facials that compensate for sun damage, signs of aging, or an impolite conversation with a wasp. Single-capacity body wraps can enact full-body exfoliation with seaweed or mud ingredients. No matter the service, skin can be renewed with renowned products from Serena Ray Dead Sea, RVB, or Albert d?Arnal.
But if that's not enough, clients can now take advantage of a full menu of medical treatments courtesy of the team behind Light Touch Med Spa, which acquired Bellagio in 2012. Lasers can zap unwanted hair or outdated tattoos, and Botox injections or other fillers can erase wear from years of frowning at stoplights.
An Indian-born and -educated Ayurvedic practitioner, Ismat Nathani was determined to create a place in the Western hemisphere that shared the wonder of East Indian medicine while still maintaining its historic integrity. In 2002, she founded Centre for Ayurveda & Indian Systems of Healing, or CAISH, which fosters the holistic arts through three branches: education, healing, and wellness products. An extensive education program accepts both beginners and advanced professionals into accredited courses on techniques ranging from yoga to Ismat's specialty, neurotherapy. Visitors may also receive holistic and Ayurvedic treatments from CAISH's menu of wellness services, such as acupuncture and steam baths practiced in five treatment rooms throughout the 1,500-square-foot facility. A selection of essential oils and Ayurvedic herbs encourages at-home health maintenance more pleasantly than a meditation CD filled with a mother's guilt trips.
The certified therapists at Mississauga Colonics preach a message of health and wellness based on good nutrition and detoxification. They believe the bowels play a crucial part in the workings of the body, and if the colon becomes bogged down with debris and waste, the performance of all organs suffers. Colonics clear out this harmful material, allowing for better nutrient absorption and boosted energy levels when running from stampeding bulls. The clinic's other detox services include lymphatic massage, body wraps, infrared-sauna sessions, and juice cleanses.
Amid the soft earth tones of Zen Spa's walls, an atmosphere of tranquility radiates. The 5,000-square-foot space is dubbed an "urban sanctuary," one where guests might escape their hectic lives to drink tea, slink into steam rooms to sweat out stress, or receive blissful massage and body treatments across 10 private rooms and two couples suites.
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 Escape Studio Hair & Spa, stylists and aestheticians aim to create an unforgettable experience for every client. They believe that a trip to the spa should be enjoyed and therefore recommend that clients budget enough time to kick back, relax, and learn a whale song or two. The studio's stylists offer a full menu of hair services, complete with colouring treatments and cuts for women, men, and children. In the spa, aestheticians wax body hair and pamper nails, backs, and skin. Laser treatments round out the spa's offerings—aestheticians use the highly concentrated light to reduce hair and diminish the appearance of sun spots, hyperpigmentation, and vessels.
