Within Paradise Wellness Center & Spa's 7,000 square feet of relaxation and beautifying facilities, spa specialists make clients over from head to toe using products from brands such as Dermalogica and G.M Collin. Visitors pass beneath an ornate chandelier as they enter through the spa's glass doors. With the ProArt NailDesign printer, customers can reward nails for their tireless work popping strangers' bubblegum by taking instant pictures and printing the captured image onto each of their finger shields. While focusing on faces, the staff can sculpt new hairstyles or cleanse visages during facials using products such as caviar. After completing their new beauty makeovers, patrons can focus on slimming down enough to fit back into their favourite crawl spaces during Zumba fitness classes.
Packages of services allow relaxation seekers to experience what spas are really all about: full-on, no-apologies, head-to-toe pampering. Caesar Spa creates a variety of combinations specially designed to usher guests into a state of full-body bliss. Most of the bundles consist of a facial and a massage, though some take it a step further, such as the Asian spa retreat for two with Oriental foot massage, herbal soothing, and mani-pedi services. Without remorse, Caesar Spa carves their packages into a menu of á la carte treatments that range from body wraps and waxing services to microdermabrasion and ear candling.
Amid the soft earth tones of Zen Spa's walls, an atmosphere of tranquility radiates. The 5,000-square-foot space is dubbed an "urban sanctuary," one where guests might escape their hectic lives to drink tea, slink into steam rooms to sweat out stress, or receive blissful massage and body treatments across 10 private rooms and two couples suites.
Skin & Beaute Spa's interior is as clean and tranquil as a client after one of the spa's sea-salt body scrubs. A simple white colour scheme dominates, from the tiled floor and cushy mani-pedi chairs to the ceiling, where a glass chandelier spills its light over the waiting room. An occasional flower or bamboo divider accents the space, but for the most part focus is kept on the treatments themselves, which cover a wide spectrum.
The staff exfoliate skin with microdermabrasion treatments, soothe aching muscles with hot-stone massages, and use heat blankets to detoxify the entire body, even that invisible force field that hovers around the ears. They also carefully select the products used throughout their clients' visits, which can last up to a full day. For seaweed wraps, they use Italian products from DIBI, and they treat sensitive skin with a hot foam mask from Maria Galland. They can also apply permanent makeup or recommend at-home care products to maintain more temporary makeovers. Additional services include relaxing facials, acupuncture, laser, body treatments, permanent laser hair removal, RMT, mani-pedis, waxing, and eyelash extensions. The spa is conveniently located in Markham on Woodbine and 16th Ave.
When clients step into Vimi Medi Spa, they're met with head-to-toe pampering services performed in a bright, tranquil environment with private treatment rooms. Hair can be cut and styled, whereas unwanted hair can be removed with thread, wax, and lasers. Faces glow with help from classic facials and makeup applications, or more high-tech services such as oxygen-infusion treatments and injectables. Nails are beautified with manicures and pedicures, and artists apply elaborate henna designs to hands. Bodies are revitalized with scrubs, massages, and steaming sessions, and clients can slim down with body-cavitation treatments and radio-frequency machines that dissolve fatty tissue and cumbersome mascot costumes. Whether clients are in search of a quick facial, a wedding-day makeover, or a decadent day full of treatments, their spa sessions will share a few common qualities: they're performed with eco-friendly products whenever possible, customized to each visitor, and conducted by experienced, friendly pros.
