Working within Awakenings Wellness Centre, Natalie Mcleod helps clients achieve smooth, blemish-free skin. She uses light and heat energy for two purposes: to hinder hair growth across the face and body with laser hair removal, and to fade the look of sun spots, brown spots, wrinkles, and acne with photofacials.
The technicians at National Laser Therapy Clinics of Canada use modern technology to wipe out unhealthy cravings, unwanted body hair, and unloved tattoos. By applying low-level lasers to acupressure points on the ears, hands, or feet, they help stimulate the release of addiction-crushing endorphins. These treatments have helped clients give up tobacco, alcohol, and bad eating habits without the risks of cigarettes coated in cayenne pepper or pharmaceuticals. Hair-removal and tattoo-removal services harness laser power to stop hair in its active-growth phase or break down unwanted ink.
Blanketed in lavender hues and hardwood floors, After Glow Laser Spa & Salon—operated out of the comfortable Cardinal family home—serves as the stomping grounds for stylist Rachael. She flaunts her scissor skills with refreshing and chic haircuts that complement face shapes and shoulder-perched parrots. Rachael also mixes up hair dye that douses locks with vibrant gold, brown, and red colours, and she also administers highlights.
Lavender hues and hardwood floors create a peaceful ambience at After Glow Laser Spa & Salon, operated out of the comfortable Cardinal-family home. Inside, Colleen tends to hands and feet in need of grooming. She curbs cuticle overgrowth, trims nails, and dips hands and feet into a bowl of softening paraffin wax or mewing kittens. At the end of each mani-pedi, Colleen covers nails in a traditional or special Colour Veneer polish, which lasts up to three weeks.
Extreme Tanning bronzes Barrie beauties with the sun-scoffing VersaSpa spray tan. A roomy booth, equipped with an EZ-2Breathe purification system and Comfort-Dry technology, ensures comfort as it evenly airbrushes washed-out skin. The treatment can photoskinthesize the entire body or just the face or legs in 60 seconds. Three levels of customizable tanning include an aloe-based, oil-free prep spray that maximizes skin adhesion, a streak-resistant bronzing spray fortified with beet extract, and skin-firming moisturizing spray loaded with botanical ingredients. Bodies are instantly colourized with an all-natural golden hue, making it easier to blend in when the terra cotta army attacks. Sunless tanners are advised to avoid white undergarments and any lotions containing silicone before their session, as well as showering and moisturizing beforehand to aid the spray tan’s adhesion.
