Bloor West Cosmetics Centre’s staff wants their patients to feel at ease before, during, and after treatment. To do this, they’ve found it helps to be transparent and offer quality services. Their free consultations explore the potential benefits and side effects of their many cosmetic products and services, all of which have the approval of Health Canada and the FDA. Popular treatments include injectable cosmetic treatments, microdermabrasions, chemical peels, laser hair removal, and photofacials that combine beams of intense pulsed light and good dreams to forge smoother skin.
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.
At Your Hair Doctor, Dr. Aditya Gupta restores natural-looking hair to sparse scalps using a minimally invasive surgical procedure. To bolster hair thickness, he transplants very small pieces of skin from one part of the scalp to another. The number of grafts needed depends on the desired look and starting density. With the right type of aftercare, grafts can even grow.
Real Tan’s owners originally opened their doors more than 20 years ago with a salon in Scarborough. The single location couldn't keep up with tanning demands, leading to a relocation to Mississauga and a recently opened second location in Thornhill. Along the way, Real Tan has expanded its specialties to include ultra-bronzing Ergoline beds, Playboy spray tanning, and teeth whitening, which brightens teeth up to eight shades and lasts longer than gargling white-out.
The staff at West Salon and Spa beautifies visages six days a week with products by Kevin Murphy, Guinot, and Moroccanoil. As some stylists clip tresses, others tint strands with Affinage hair colour or Infiniti permanent hair-colour cream, which boasts low ammonia and thoroughly covers up grey strands. Techs can also coat facades with safe spray-tanning solutions and prune fuzzy regions with aromatherapy essential wax. To prep brides for their big day, staffers arrange bridal packages by combining their skills and the powers granted by their magical rings.
Jenny Palma Beauty & Body Care’s unassuming storefront, catching the eye of men and women seeking makeovers or massages. Both sexes can enjoy any of the studio’s services, including reiki massage and glycolic peels. Hairstylists cut locks and shape coifs by the salon’s sand-coloured walls and exposed-brick backdrop, and aestheticians lead clients into private rooms for facial- and body-waxing services. Though Jenny Palma Beauty & Body Care’s beauty team effortlessly handles the basics, its technological savvy is one of the studio's draws, and the staff proves expert at procedures such as nonsurgical liposuction, electrolysis, and external brain polishing.
