Clients rest among modern artwork and steel accents in Dreams Laser & Spa’s red-and-black lounge before heading to private rooms covered in white. This less stimulating color helps ease clients’ minds and senses as aestheticians exfoliate their skin with glycolic peels, brighten smiles with AuraWhite, and define eyes with lash extensions.
Overseen by Dr. Shahib, the founder and instructor of the Laser and CosMedic Academy, the Canadian-trained technicians at TLC Dermal Laser Clinic practice three means to get unwanted hair off your body. With electrolysis, laser hair removal, and waxing at their disposal, the administer treatments with attention to each client’s privacy and comfort level. Once bodies have shed excess hair, the staff helps them shed excess pounds with ProEllixe whole-body vibration machines and Alpha Spa dry-heat saunas.
Serena brings a background as a teacher and bilingual secretary to her med spa, where the staff conducts consultations in English, French, Arabic, and Portuguese. Her lasers speak for themselves as they tighten skin, treat age spots, eliminate spider veins, and zap away body hair. Serena attends workshops and lectures given by prominent IPL laser machines to stay current and add to an already dynamic skill set.
After giving up careers as a teacher and hotel-management supervisor, Moazma Bhangu decided to follow her true passion: advanced laser skincare. Today, as the certified head technician at Heavenly Images, she refurbishes clients' bodies and faces using medical techniques such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and spider-vein removal. Her specialty, however, is nonsurgical laser treatments, such as ReFirme, which she wields to remove unwanted hair, smooth away wrinkles, and intimidate temporary tattoos of secret agents. She also customizes treatments, performing photofacials designed for Asian complexions as well as EDP therapy, which combines microdermabrasion, medical infusions, and LED light therapy. In addition to providing treatments, Moazma constantly educates her patients on skin health—and can prescribe skincare products by Obagi, Priori, Riversol, and PCA Skin.
Though Azure Skin Care may sound like your typical spa, it's actually a hybrid of both a spa and a medical aesthetics center. This means that the aestheticians deliver clinical-quality results, but they still pay attention to the little things that brighten up each client’s experience. The staff performs facials, waxing treatments, laser treatments, and massages, and the clinic’s board-certified doctors supervise procedures that are medical in nature, such as Botox injections. The whole space is distinguished by white tiles, neutral hues, and floral accents, making it as relaxing as a hammock tied between two classical violinists.
