LaserTouch Aesthetics' team of licensed laser technicians overhauls dulled complexions and flawed skin with a roster of laser treatments and dermal fillers. Using FDA-approved Candela, Cynosure, and Cutera lasers, they aim to reduce the appearance of acne, wrinkles, and sunspots, and strive to do the same to dimples and lines caused by cellulite. During laser treatments, skin surfaces are kept at a comfortable temperature thanks to patented cooling devices.
When they're not aiming state-of-the-art laser beams at unwanted hair or moles, staffers smooth out wrinkles caused by stress or using a porcupine as a pillow with Botox, Dysport, and Juvederm treatments. Before each appointment, laser practitioners perform test spots and assess skin and hair, so they can safely customize each treatment to their client?s specifications.
With a menu that introduces traditional Italian fare to a modern culinary sensibility, Adesso Bistro's chefs have garnered acclaim from a host of publications including the Vancouver Courier and the Globe and Mail. "Adesso" translates to "now" in Italian, symbolizing the culinary artisans' commitment to turning fresh locally sourced and organic ingredients into vibrant plates that carry the flavours of Italy's northwestern coastal region Liguria. Known for its capital city of Genoa, the seafood-loving region is dotted with small towns that produce dynamic takes on Italian staples such as foccaccia, pesto, and calamari. Adesso's owners line its facade with lush vegetation and accent the dining room with dark wood tables and chairs. Servers flit imported and local wines to tables dotting the outdoor patio among neatly trimmed bushes and the sweet sounds of the eatery's three squirrel tenors.
The skilled technicians at all of O Spa's three beauty havens focus on fostering whole-body well-being as they tend to skin with more than 10 treatments, including more than 10 massage modalities. Advanced med-spa treatments include laser hair removal with the Eterna Giovinezza by Quanta System, which destroys follicles at the root with its heated rays in 15-minute to two-hour sessions. Permanent-makeup sessions focus on defining facial features with cosmetic tattoos. The areas are first covered with a topical anesthetic to make the experience more comfortable before a permanent-makeup artist inks the lids with faux eyeliner, fills in the brows, or creates the illusion of full lips by tattooing "I Heart Mom" around them.
Clients in search of nonsurgical solutions to their skincare needs can hop into Cavi Spa Skin & Body Center?s Visia complexion analysis, which peers into the topical and subsurface layers of the skin, exposing UV damage and pore depth, before serving up a personalized skin-youthifying blueprint. A course of medical-grade chemical peels, microdermabrasions, or injectables can leave complexions radiating with reclaimed vigor, or teeth-whitening procedures can remove stains and add subtle sparkle to smiles. Clients looking for more dramatic results can explore the doctor?s surgical options, which can transform torsos, limbs, and faces into stunningly youthful, and often undetectably natural, versions of their former selves.
Floor-to-ceiling glass walls enclose The Edge Hair Salon, making the chic Roosevelt Field mall beauty haven hard to miss. Inside, deep coral hues and black accents surround a team of stylists, who together have more than 30 years of hair-sculpting experience. The crew tests the shampoo-filled waters with modern snipping techniques and updates dull hues with highlights and single-process color treatments, eliminating most reasons to go bobbing for apples in a tub of paint. For special occasions, airbrush-makeup artists flawlessly apply foundation and colorful eye shadow to complement elegant updos.
