The services at Copper Creek Medi Spa are varied, but they coalesce around the goal of making guests both look and feel their best including hair removal, skin rejuvenation, and anti-aging procedures. The centre's 10 different facials are a central part of that mission, since each addresses a different skin problem, from acne to wrinkles to dryness. Copper Creek also is outfitted with advanced laser and intense-pulsed-light systems, which remove unwanted hair, rejuvenate skin, and reduce the appearance of spider veins. But the med spa's space does not feels clinical—it features high ceilings, art-bedecked walls, and an indoor garden filled with plants that don't judge you for breathing the oxygen they didn't want anymore.
The Aesthetics College of Canada builds a foundation for budding beauticians' future careers by imbuing students with theoretical knowledge and hands-on training in four-day classes. A makeup-application course delves into the history of cosmetics before exploring facial-feature enhancement, skin-tone product choices, and how to tint eyebrows without using shoe polish (up to $999). Similarly, the introductory laser-hair-removal session recalls electromagnetic spectrum and IPL days of yore in order to discuss hair biology and anatomy, skin types, and advanced bristle-banishing techniques (up to $999). For a more hands-on approach to banishing wily follicles, an introductory waxing seminar instructively enlightens with in-depth suggestions and tips for using tools to reshape eyebrows and other forested areas ($849). The college's spa-like atmosphere, up-to-date machines, and life-like laugh track allow apprentices the chance to hone real-world aesthetic skills.
