At Salveo Naturopathic & Skin Care, doctors Allan and Shalon Strauss oversee certified laser technicians who enhance bodily contours using FDA-approved VelaShape, a noninvasive laser lipo procedure demonstrated live on The Doctors. Treatment begins as technicians explain VelaShape in-depth so patients feel comfortable and can set realistic expectations about fitting into their favourite childhood lederhosen. While clients recline, technicians secure two multi-laser probes and two smaller laser probes to treatment areas before gliding the VelaShape hand piece over epidermises. The device applies a cold, low-level laser technology comprised of four fat-targeting modalities—vacuum action, mechanical massage, infrared light, and radio-frequency energy—which combine to melt subcutaneous fat, boost circulation, stimulate lymphatic drainage, and smoothen the appearance of cellulite. Patients may lose up to 3-inches in circumference depending on treatment area, ranging from large zones such as the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen to smaller swaths such as the flanks and upper arms. Patients often experience little to no discomfort and can return to normal activities right away.
Spa Pure's talented staff pampers, soothes, and revivifies patron pelts through an array of luxurious spa services. In a 30-minute massage, nurturing hands tend to tense knots and tight muscles in backs, necks, and shoulders weary from stress, hard work, and bench-pressing pianos (a $29 value). Aestheticians cater each half-hour, customized relaxation facial to customers' wishes, affinity for pickles, and skin type (a $55 value). Determining the products and methods best suited to the face before them, these epidermis experts cleanse pores of accumulated grit and apply toner to firm and tighten. After a round of exfoliation and extraction of blackheads, faces receive a soothing massage and a noncommittal face mask. The process ends with the application of eye cream and a pore-slaking moisturizer.
The colours of choice at the beauty lounge are black and white—at least when it comes to decor. But past the plush black sofa and black-and-white art prints, the stylists pull from a far more colourful palette. They turn out vibrant red coifs during colour treatments and paint nails in warm or summery hues. And in addition to clearing skin of unwanted hair, the team enhances it with complementary blushes, liners, and lipsticks.
With more than 20 years of experience, Doctors Barbara and Daniel Yip share a demeanour that their patients call "kind, personable, and empathetic" during a broad range of aesthetic services. Together, the two combat the external signs of aging while also infusing clients with internal energy and vitality. In order to reveal their clients' natural beauty, the doctors employ rigorously tested techniques proven to tighten aging skin, treat acne, or remove unwanted hairs that beg to be shaved off so they can explore the world.
The licensed aestheticians at Antiquity Day Spa and Salon soothe guests with aromatherapeutic mud wraps in tranquil, private rooms. A salt glow exfoliation begins the one-hour treatment, sloughing off dead cells and revealing skin as smooth as Poseidon’s favourite skipping stone. Aestheticians coat corporeal planes in a therapeutic mud imported from France in addition to essential oils to please noses and calm minds. As the nutritive minerals from the earthy armour sink into skin, guests can admire the spa's jewel-toned walls and curtains made from ornate upholstery. Once the mud releases its gentle grip from arms and ankles, an aesthetician hydrates skin with an aromatic body moisturizer and optional Gatorade and high-fives.
EM Beautician School of Canada & Spa is an immersive learning environment where students rehearse their aesthetic skills by manning the on-site spa. Their treatments are likewise immersive for clients: body exfoliation or a hot-stone massage sinks physiques into relaxation, and facials cleanse pores with Dermalogica products or even 24-karat gold, which feels more luxurious against the skin than a caviar necklace.
Of course, instructors constantly monitor the seasoned pupils as they conduct their transformative services. Outside of the spa, instructors host classes on general aesthetics and nail care, preparing groups to earn their licences and provide care that is both stellar and sanitary. Their lessons cover topics from aromatherapy to electrotherapy and modern spa appliances, as well as physiology and cosmetic chemistry.
