As a certified doctor of natural medicine, an aesthetician with years of experience, and a natural-health consultant, Irina is anything but a one-trick skin specialist. She puts her diverse background to use unearthing beauty with custom facials and permanent-makeup applications that keep eyebrows properly arched, lips colourful, and beauty marks firmly planted. While her staff meticulously performs mani-pedis and antibacterial, antimicrobial nonwax hair-removal treatments, Irina helms electrolysis and IPL sessions, as well as holistic Bowen-therapy treatments, which employ short bursts of rolling, massage-like moves designed to restore bodily balance and incite natural healing.
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.
Skilled therapists and aestheticians at Naturalase customize spa treatments to suit complexions of all ages and skin types. Skin savants strive to not only bolster the appearance of clients’ facades with NaturaLase pulsed-light systems, but to also nourish and revitalize below the surface with organic, vitamin-rich products by Jane Iredale and Èminence. The relaxation gurus furnish the candlelit waiting room with plush leather couches and the occasional mariachi band to serenade patrons as they drift into private treatment rooms.
Sunsera Salons' name hides the fact that it's more than a hair salon—it's also a full-service spa. At one end, hairstylists expertly cut, condition, and highlight hair, or add length and volume with extensions. Meanwhile, their coworkers perform a slew of relaxing services: manicures and pedicures, facials, massages, laser hair removal, and hydrating body wraps.
At Mission Oaks Laser & Spa, a licensed crew of laser technicians and aestheticians buffs bodily exteriors in a clean and professional environment. Medicam intense-pulsed-light units lower the friction coefficients of upper lips, chins, and bikini lines and work to remove tattoos, reduce wrinkles, and eliminate spider veins. The team also eschews these light-based labours to perform a slate of spa services, such as massages, mani-pedis, and hair stylings. Before each treatment during complimentary consultations, clients can choose their technician and express their individual needs and any concerns.
The aestheticians at Dream Beauty Lounge use both traditional and high-tech spa services to improve their clients' appearances. Good old-fashioned European facials leave the complexion cleansed and toned, while microdermabrasion buffs away dull skin cells through mechanical exfoliation, like a massage from a rough-handed robot. Waxing treatments render body parts hair-free for a few weeks, whereas laser hair removal yields longer-lasting results.
