The trained technicians and professional aestheticians at York Laser Centre specialize in making their clients' skin look its best. With the aid of the skin-enhancing machines, vascular lesions, acne, sun damage, age spots, and excessive redness can fade from bodily surfaces. The spa's treatments also include laser hair removal and microdermabrasion treatments, which rejuvenate and tighten skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and sending bodily hair back to the Play-Doh Spaghetti Factory from whence it came.
• For $65, you get the Dr. Renaud facial makeover (a $130 value). • For $129, you get three laser hair-removal sessions (up to a $285 value). Mi Casa's expert staff make over faces and smooth away unwanted hair in a 3,000-square-foot spa. During Dr. Renaud's expertly designed makeover, clients relax in included robes and slippers as dermis aficionados thoroughly analyze skin and apply a cosmetic peel that leaves faces as pure as a soft-spoken golden goose. A hydrating serum replenishes parched pores, and a Lumilift mask smoothes, lifts, and tightens face canvases. Skilled hands deftly paint skin in complexion enhancers packed with horse chestnut to decongest heads and bolster microcirculation. Finally, mascara thickens eyelashes and a Diva lip-plumping balm renders mouths ready to kiss nearby puppies.
The highly trained staff at Solaris Spa utilizes advanced technology and high-quality products to beautify bodies in a tranquil setting. Upon arrival, guests are greeted by the sound of a trickling granite waterfall, a peaceful melody designed to calm the senses and call to mind pleasant memories of a secret crush on a former plumber. Guests slip into oversized robes and cozy slippers before relaxing with a massage in a candlelit treatment room, or head to the far-infrared sauna to incite fat burn and purge the body of toxins. Aestheticians brighten men's and women's complexions during anti-aging facials, using products from the Priori line; mani-pedis are enhanced with fragrant sea salt and peppermint. The spa also specializes in laser hair-removal and skin-correction treatments, which begin with a free consultation with a certified laser technician and often end with speedier trips down playground slides.
The idea for Simply Comfort Spa came from two cousins who wanted to offer a more tranquil and pampering approach to spa services. Facials are performed with Laboratoire Dr Renaud products, and preference is always given to products made with organic, fair-trade ingredients or by bees that make fair wages. The spa’s mani-pedis include an exfoliating brown-sugar scrub and finish with OPI nail polish, and waxing services use botanical épillyss wax, designed specially for sensitive skin. The staff also offers relaxing massage therapy, makeup and bridal services, and handmade hair clips for sale.
Sunsera Salons' name hides the fact that it's more than a hair salon—it's also a full-service spa. At one end, hairstylists expertly cut, condition, and highlight hair, or add length and volume with extensions. Meanwhile, their coworkers perform a slew of relaxing services: manicures and pedicures, facials, massages, laser hair removal, and hydrating body wraps.
When Frida Emalange opened her first salon in 2001, she recognized the need for a salon in the area that would cater to clients with all types of hair. Now, with her dream salons, Zorganics Health & Beauty, she continues this mission, along with using and selling a line of natural, organic products. Drawing inspiration from Zora—the name of Frida’s daughter, as well as a word meaning “dawn” or “rising sun”—the stylists work to make each client’s hair and skin look and feel as lovely as the sunrise. Along with hair care that includes couture haircuts, Keratin treatments, cornrows, and full weaves, the staff members pamper nails and skin with organic spa treatments. They also bundle their services into pampering packages that may include candle lit massage, which is what George Washington called it when he cleaned his musket.
