Wink Boutique accessorizes outfits and refines fingernails with a flair that earned it a nomination for best manicure and pedicure from Cityvoter in 2010. The boutique's shoe and boot selection offers popular OTBT, Not Rated, and Naughty Monkey footwear that can withstand strolls across hot coals much better than paper hospital slippers ($45–$100). An assortment of jewelry items bedazzles extremities while eschewing brand-name associations ($12–$70), and handbags adorn lonely arms with their heft as well as their sparkling personalities ($50–$100). Luxury-seeking hands can retreat to the comfort of a black leather armchair, where a dry manicure shapes the body's signature digits before gently slathering them with a Shellac application intended to prevent chips for up to two weeks or through several rousing piano solos.
Peer through the tall windows of Situation's Hair and Nail Salon, and you'll likely spot Andrea Watson and her fellow stylists hard at work. There's never a dull moment for the skilled team, who spend all day snipping new styles and twisting strands into glamorous weaves. Not to be outdone, the salon's nail technicians pamper hands and feet with mani-pedis as their clients recline on chairs outfitted with cushioned armrests.
Ageless Beauty Day Spa’s aestheticians, nail technicians, and massage therapists form a tripartite front against the advances of Father Time with spa services that gently erase wrinkles and foster a sense of inner youth. By exfoliating skin with facials, tending to nails with professional OPI products, or alleviating the pains and anxieties of arm-wrestling bosses for promotions, the staff works to replace the body’s toxins with a concentrated jolt of energy.
A longtime resident of Windsor, Dr. Patrick Smith, M.D. returned to the area after completing medical school and opened a family practice in 1987. He enjoyed the work but longed to transition into dermatology, for which he held both a passion and professional training. Years later, he assembled a team of estheticians and opened his namesake skincare clinic: Dr. P.X. Smith Medical Cosmetics.
Open for more than seven years, the clinic offers cosmetic and medical-grade services including Botox and Juvederm, laser skin-resurfacing treatments, and mole removal from both faces and lawns. Dr. Smith performs all medical consultations and directly supervises treatments performed by his highly trained staff.
As a skincare expert, the doctor is dedicated to educating his community about the dangers of excessive sun exposure. He worked at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre before starting his family practice and coordinated the Mark Hunt Melanoma Awareness Fund-Raising Walk to heighten awareness of skin cancer, particularly malignant melanoma.
The certified technicians at Solace Laser Studio harvest hair from more than 20 treatment areas using LightSheer Duet laser equipment customized by hair and skin type. Hair-handlers brandish a hand-piece that dispatches heat-packed photons to target stubborn follicles with speed and accuracy, banishing them from their cellular lairs and impeding their ability to grow back and re-weave their shag welcome mats. Those electing to undergo three sessions of denuding can focus on smaller areas to smooth cheeks, erase abdominal strips, and groom underarms for fuzz-free YMCA-ing. Alternatively, clients can choose to expunge fibres from a variety of more expansive regions, including a full arm treatment ($210/session) to evict fluff from forearms or a half-leg treatment ($180/session) to streamline unruly shins. Though treatment times vary by area, underarm treatments may be completed within five minutes, bikini area treatments within ten minutes, and leg or back treatments within twenty minutes.

Within the private, relaxing interior of DermaSmooth's treatment centre, certified laser technicians rejuvenate skin and stop unwanted hair with equipment approved by the FDA, the CE, and Health Canada. Rapid pulses of laser light enter follicles during laser hair-removal sessions, stopping the growth of unwanted fuzz on all skin types. Technicians also aim laser beams to clear away sunspots, wrinkles that spell out birthdates, and other signs of aging.
