Women and men sink into a serene trance at Nicole's Esthetics Day Spa, where aestheticians revitalize bodies with manicures, facials, massages, and nail treatments. The spa's relaxation massages seek to alleviate muscular tension and improve blood flow. Facials smooth skin with low-level LED light treatments, and three types of eyelash-extension options frame peepers with up to 60 lashes per eye for a look that's similar to wearing three coats of mascara or attaching a fairy's feather duster to each lash.
Beauty Elements ranks among the premier purveyors of online beauty products, stocking brands from the likes of Catwalk, Kérastase, and Éminence while empowering shoppers with swift searching by brand, category, or price. Faces come clean under the two-in-one cleansing and skin-restoring might of Éminence's lime cleansing mask ($36.10/125 ml), enriching especially dry skin with extracts of tea, lime, bamboo, and the laughter tears of charitable angels. Lock in precious face water while adding a bit of bronze with the caramel-latte-tinted moisturizer ($39.38/35 ml), a lightweight formulation of shea butter, aloe, and jojoba oil that lends SPF 25 protection. Freshly buffed bodyscapes can then firm and smooth with a coating of guarana- and caffeine-rich Yummy Skin Curve Appeal body creme ($21.33/250 ml).
The certified laser technicians at Flashpoint Lazer Clinic specialize in completely erasing or artistically updating tattoos. Clients who opt for removal sit under the beams of a Q-switch Nd:Yag laser as it breaks up ink and removes colourful particles through natural channels. Those seeking an edit on existing images can ask in-house artists to retouch fading hues, or hide them behind new camouflage-coloured designs.
The aestheticians of Odette's Skin Laser Wellness Clinic, one of the only holistic med spas in the Okanagan, take pride in offering treatments of the skin using medical-grade equipment, targeting cellulite and dissolving fat. They offer a variety of services that relax and detoxify the body, as well a long list of facials to treat skin afflicted with signs of aging or acne. They even offer laser services that can remove unwanted hair, nail fungus, or sun spots.
Though aloe is generally considered a necessity for already-tanned bodies, Body Mist Tanning introduces a new twist on the adage, offering spray tans that bronze bodies with aloe-based formulas. Yes, the salon’s two Mystic spray-tanning booths mist bodies with this naturally based substance, which takes minutes to apply and, much like the morning sun, reaches its darkest point in about 12 hours. The tanning spa also pairs its traditional bronzing services with a slew of cosmetic and relaxation-oriented services such as massages and teeth-whitening treatments.
