A sleek bastion of beautification services, Lacquer Beauty Bar lavishes a multifaceted pampering on human hides, leaving skin refreshed and luminous. The deep-cleaning 30-minute facial revitalizes cheekbones and foreheads, fortifying epidermal cases with vitamin C to protect it from invading impurities and hordes of micro-Vikings. After enriching the skin, the 20-minute massage soothes stress-induced wrinkles and age-lines, while Lacquer's all-natural La Vigne Organic Skincare products—like strong winds or the touch of an obsessive-compulsive giant—burnish craggy visages over time. Stresses melt away against a mod backdrop of sleek white furnishings complemented by bright, colourful accent pieces.
Clear skin is an important component when it comes to looking and feeling your best, but busy schedules often get in the way of dedicated skincare regimens. Into this whirl of calendar pages step the technicians at Wendy's Beauty, carving out a serene oasis in the middle of hectic lives. When clients first arrive at their spa, tech quiz them on their skin's needs and wants. This initial consultation helps them concoct custom treatment plans that might include everything from a pore-cleansing facial to a buffing microdermabrasion session. Techs don't limit their expertise to facial treatments, though; their body scrubs, waxing treatments, and aromatherapy massages restore lost vim and flagging vigor in other parts of the body. No matter the treatments they choose, clients rest easy when it comes to products: professional-grade skincare serums from companies including Mary Galland and Swiss Helenere power all of the spa's treatments.
At Contour Laser and Skin Concepts, the medical aesthetics professionals take their clients' trust very seriously. So seriously, in fact, that they offer no service that they have not tested and endorsed themselves. Approved treatments include skin tightening and hair removal with NaturaLight IPL lasers and medical treatments such as Botox and fillers. The medical aesthetics professionals use their in-house training to expertly perform each procedure as music and a convivial atmosphere help transform sessions into social experiences.
Inside her full-service salon, seven-year beauty veteran Alexandra Rojas updates looks with creative cuts, braids, and extensions. She?s joined by threading specialist Baljit Grill, who deftly removes unwanted hair with the quick twist of cotton fibres. The rest of the team further boosts beauty with lash extensions, mani-pedis, and henna designs.
Electra Laser's skin-rejuvenation clinic, featured on 94.5 FM's The Kid Carson Show, helps restore youthful glows to both men's and women's faces during facials and non-invasive microdermabrasion treatments. After analyzing faces to determine the best treatment plan and level of exfoliation, expert therapists magically pull the DiamondTome microdermabrasion machine from their clients’ hats and equip it with a diamond-chip wand tip that can vary by size and coarseness to target skin conditions such as sun damage, acne, and unwanted pigmentation. Wands glide over faces and precisely exfoliate and remove the top-most layer of the epidermis, promoting collagen and new skin layer production. During the customized mask treatment, skin artisans paint faces in a refreshing, oil-free gel that invigorates and brings moisture back to dry skin with a blend of calming botanicals and antioxidant vitamins free from artificial fragrances and colours. Clients usually emerge from the 30–45 minute treatment with minimal or no downtime after the procedure, allowing a return to daily activities and flash mobs at the mall almost immediately.
The beauty experts at Armani Salon and Spa pamper the entire body with treatments that range from mani-pedis and haircuts to full-body massages. Aestheticians perform a line of specialty facials that nourish and firm skin using fresh-fruit collagen masks, or 24K gold leaf pillaged from the pantries of very wealthy deer. They also offer facial threading, a hair-removal technique that uses a pair of cotton threads to eliminate errant strands in precise rows. During all services, aestheticians draw from their arsenal of professional products from MAC Cosmetics, Estée Lauder, Macadamia Natural Oil, and other high-quality brands.
