After starting her career in family medicine, Dr. Shahira Boulos decided to transition to an approach to aesthetic medicine that uses less invasive techniques to dramatically improve patients' appearances. She accomplishes this goal by utilizing cutting edge advancements in medspa technology, including a Candela cosmetic laser system as well as an elōs Plus device, which can tone the skin and conceal signs of acne scars by using bi-polar radio frequencies. Dr. Boulos continues to rely on her decades of medical experience when injecting dermal fillers or Botox. However, she also flexes her aesthetician muscles to minimize the appearance of unwanted blemishes by administering chemical peels or treating the skin with a diamond-tipped microdermbrasion wand. For a more classically indulgent spa experience, the center also features a massage therapist, who can relieve the chronic aches plaguing muscles, soft tissues, and vestigial antennae.
There's a reason Bellissima Spa and Laser Clinic keeps winning awards?the staff has been improving clients' skin since the clinic first flung open its doors in 2003, targeting a variety of skincare concerns with medical-grade services. Retinol peels pummel wrinkles with vitamin A, whereas the gentler herbal green peel harnesses the power of plants and herbs to diminish scars, large pores, and age spots with your age etched into them. Chromo lift therapy combines colour therapy and ultrasonic peels to increase skin's elasticity, and laser hair removal helps clients achieve sleeker skin by greatly reducing hair growth.
Under the supervision of the Anti-Aging Clinic's doctor, certified technicians help to restore youthful appearances with medical-grade treatments. Staff members take up state-of-the-art technology such as GentleLase hair-removal lasers, DiamondTome microdermabrasion wands, and Tripolar skin-tightening treatments. Other services, however, are as low-tech as it gets: chiropractors, massage therapists, and hypnotherapists work toward mind-body wellness in order to help clients to find comfort, confidence, and the strength to quit pretending their kids' crayons are cigarettes. The clinic—which keeps late-evening and Saturday hours—combines medical professionalism with a spa aesthetic; staff members dress in crisp, hospital-style uniforms, but Egypt-inspired art hangs on the walls alongside the colourful anatomical charts.
Each treatment room in Balsam Spa has its own name, which is emblazoned on the room's door in black capital letters. Names such as Water, Fire, and Sky hint at the kinds of bodily sensations clients might experience inside. This thoughtful approach pervades all of the day spa's treatments, which use Ayurvedic methods and various elements from nature. An array of soothing services incorporate mineral salts, volcanic heat packs, and beauty affirmations learned from shouting butterflies. Body scrubs, facials, and peels help dry, rough skin regain its youthful luster, while mani-pedis and waxing sessions fine-tune looks. Hot basalt stone massages help whisk clients away on a cloud of relaxation.
The staff at Relaxology Wellness Centre ON, a chain of stress-free oases sprinkled throughout the metro area, pampers their clients' hair, skin, and nails with a comprehensive menu of spa treatments. Their offerings range from classic facials and massages to herbal steam baths and foot reflexology. Body scrubs buff away dull, dry skin to reveal a silkier birthday suit, while waxing sessions whisk away any lingering stubble.
NV Medical Spa's technicians have collectively performed more than 20,000 laser hair-removal treatments. That's 20,000 times they've fired up their equipment and shone its pulsating beams into follicles to shut down hair production on the back, neck, face, and abdomen. With so much success in this arena, it's hardly surprising the spa's two locations have rushed to adopt other light-based treatments; their IPL technology also treats acne, veins, and scars. But as with stock-car-pushing races, machines don't do all the work. Fueled exclusively by Dermalogica products, the spa's seven facials reduce blemishes and wrinkles and slough off dead skin cells, leaving faces looking fresh and youthful.
