Since opening the doors of Salon 1 West in April of 2009, stylist Sheena King-Nixon and aesthetician and junior stylist Stephanie Gerhardt have built a trusty team attentive to the needs of each guest and a network of loyal patrons. Surrounded by walls in muted, soothing colours or chic patterned wallpaper, the skilled stylists work to make hair equally as fashion-forward using professional product lines such as Matrix and MoroccanOil. In addition to a full salon menu including hair and nail services, the aestheticians help patrons pamper their bodies with waxing, facials, and ear-candling, preventing patrons from having to coax out earwax by playing a CD of bees buzzing.
The certified technicians at Solace Laser Studio harvest hair from more than 20 treatment areas using LightSheer Duet laser equipment customized by hair and skin type. Hair-handlers brandish a hand-piece that dispatches heat-packed photons to target stubborn follicles with speed and accuracy, banishing them from their cellular lairs and impeding their ability to grow back and re-weave their shag welcome mats. Those electing to undergo three sessions of denuding can focus on smaller areas to smooth cheeks, erase abdominal strips, and groom underarms for fuzz-free YMCA-ing. Alternatively, clients can choose to expunge fibres from a variety of more expansive regions, including a full arm treatment ($210/session) to evict fluff from forearms or a half-leg treatment ($180/session) to streamline unruly shins. Though treatment times vary by area, underarm treatments may be completed within five minutes, bikini area treatments within ten minutes, and leg or back treatments within twenty minutes.

Melissa Lyons had all but given up hope on finding a way to get rid of her unwanted hair. She tried waxing, shaving, and other aggressive methods but found that her skin would become red and irritated with ingrown hairs and bumps. After trying to avoid bathing suits and tank tops for years, Lyons finally decided to try laser hair removal. Her results were so positive and effective that she opened her own business in 2003, determined to help other people experience the same convenient, smooth, and confidence-boosting outcomes.

Located at Nguyen Chiropractic and Rehabilitation Centre, Med-Lazer beautifies physiques with noninvasive laser treatments. With IPL hair removal, powered by the elōs system, trained laser techs manipulate light and radio frequencies to permanently shut down unwanted follicle growth or use foto facials that draw on similar technology to fade age spots. Laser skin-tightening and cosmetic-acupuncture treatments lift sagging skin to lend faces a more youthful look without the hassle of surgery or the unlimited financial resources required to locate the fountain of youth.
As their name suggests, the technicians at TLC Tecumseh Laser Center are expert at aiming concentrated pulses of light at unwanted body hair to oust it from various locales during laser hair-removal treatments or at unwanted fat to help slim waistline, hips, or thighs during Zerona treatments. But the staff doesn't limit its services to just lasers. They wield the Venus Freeze body-contouring system to help reduce fat and tighten skin via magnetic pulses and radio waves. A variety of facials, peels, and teeth-whitening services are also available.
