Past a stylish waiting room filled with leather couches and bright, fuchsia walls, Emma Skin Care's technicians battle skin encroachers with intense pulsed light systems. The technology gently heats up the epidermis to fade the look of sun damage or spider veins and blasts follicles to permanently reduce unwanted hair. The aestheticians also wield microdermabrasion's diamond-tipped wands to remove dead skin cells with a gratifying poof. Emma Skin Care eyelash services use Misencil brand lash extensions, making natural lashes longer and more voluminous. Relash touch-ups extend the longevity of the service.
A few years in the beauty industry are enough to teach anyone a few tricks—decades are enough to make a master. The owners of The Village Med Spa bring those decades to the private rooms of their aesthetic haven, guiding a team of stylists and beauty pros as they burnish bodies with contemporary and time-tested services. CoolGlide lasers, for example, eliminate unwanted hair and tiny space aliens attempting to colonize clients' ankles, whereas microdermabrasion treatments draw upon the most quintessential of face-rejuvenating techniques: exfoliation. Permanent makeup rounds out the spa's offerings, combining old practices with modern applications while shaving time off morning routines.
The Village Med Spa's owners demonstrate their decades' worth of experience when culling services that enhance clients' natural beauty. From inside private treatment rooms, the CoolGlide laser beams down on epidermal canvases to remove errant hair or blemishes from all skin tones—including those that have been tanned or trapped inside a blueberry dunk tank. The exfoliating mineral crystals of microdermabrasion further revivify the skin by quelling brown spots and fine lines. After a bout of threading or waxing, brows and lashes can receive a dose of tint to accentuate features, with effects made more lasting with the application of permanent makeup.
Registered nurse Simona Ghinet has spent 19 years in medicine and five concentrating on cosmetic medicine, gaining expertise that helps her guide her clinic's staff as they deploy lasers, hydradermabrasion, and medical peels. Their laser systems can eradicate nail fungus, resurface skin, and painlessly remove stubble that could otherwise grow into fully formed wigs. Alternatively, staff can smooth and soften skin through hydradermabrasion treatments that don't rely on lasers, or use hypoallergenic pigments to give clients permanent makeup that streamlines morning routines.
The seasoned stylists at Follicle Hair Salon & Spa can cater to almost any beauty request. Standing before black-and-white chairs, they clip chic haircuts, then steep strands in rich colour or smooth them with keratin. They embellish nails with organic acrylic gel that lasts far longer than traditional polish, and smooth away fine lines or persistent smirks with microdermabrasion. Aromatherapy massages leave patrons relaxed, completing the spa experience.
"I now use many of the noninvasive medical services I offer at my clinics to fight the aging process. I have personally never felt or looked better and I am now in my forties," says Eleanor Welsh, founder of Skin Vitality Medical Clinic. Using Elos laser and radio frequency technology, her team of registered nurses and registered practical nurses is able to reshape bodies, erase body hair, and tighten skin with the push of a button. Their skill with beauty injectables comes from extensive training from Allergan and other pharmaceutical companies, giving them the deft ability to leave clients' faces more youthful than a rosebud in a sippy cup. For more dramatic results, Dr. Conor B. Turley performs cosmetic surgeries such as tucks, augmentations, and lifts.
