Located just 30 minutes from downtown Ottawa, Above & Beyond Medi, Wellness, and Beauty Spa owner and laser technician Rachelle Landriault uses a steady hand and 5 years of experience to provide clients with dozens of noninvasive aesthetic treatments. Named favourite day spa and favourite beauty salon by the Cornwall Standard Freeholder, she and her talented staff strive to stay abreast of the safest and most advanced procedures, such as IPL laser treatments. Stylists also infuse hair with bold colors through a a complete line of Goldwell colour and offer a wide range of bridal up 'do services. Additionally, Above & Beyond pairs clients with the same therapist, technician, or physician for every visit, thereby fostering personal relationships and making it more difficult for a client's evil twin to steal their appointment.
Vitalglow Medical Aesthetics owner Candace Zimmer––a former student of Versailles Academy––aims to create a spa where visitors can relax as they rediscover their youth through noninvasive laser treatments. Prior to any of their physical makeovers, the expert medical aestheticians consult with each client to go over beauty goals and cater procedures to treat chronic conditions such as acne and other skin conditions. Helmed by a board-certified dermatologist, staff members then administer a lineup of customizable treatments, many of which were featured on CTV's Morning Live.
Inside the 3,500-square-foot Bay Street Salon and Spa, staffers enhance exteriors with hair, skin, and body treatments that make use of natural therapies. Aestheticians mask mugs with Nelly De Vuyst skincare products, a Belgian line that's rich in vegetable extracts and that has been cosseting complexions for more than 40 years. The salon and spa's clients can follow stints at the shampoo bar with aromatherapy scalp massages, or they can surrender to seashell and hot-stone body massages and Golden Moor mud baths designed to extract toxins and misplaced binder clips from sore musculature.
The medical professionals at La Vie Health Centre dedicate themselves to proactive health care— they thoroughly investigate each patient’s past and present health in order to predict and prevent future maladies, such as cancer or heart disease. They firmly believe, along with the American Heart Association and American Cancer Society, that early detection is key, and their slate of services reflects this. The staff works one-on-one with each patient that enters the facility, performing comprehensive screenings and testings and then helping them to modify their lifestyles and habits in order to dodge potential health risks, such as onrushing asteroids.
One-day comprehensive wellness assessments last approximately five hours and detect irregularities through ECGS, stress tests, blood work, and fitness and nutritional analyses. Oftentimes, these appointments lead to year-round wellness programs, which include quarterly visits to the physician and dietician, ongoing care, and access to medical advice by telephone, email, or astral projection 24 hours a day. The staff further encourage holistic wellness with the Be Healthy Program, a getaway package that sends travellers to the Brookstreet Hotel, where they receive facials, personal training sessions, and meals for two. A smattering of cosmetic treatments, such as Botox and Laser Genesis skin therapy, match outward appearances to newly refreshed interiors.
The Centre’s commitment to preventative medicine is also apparent in its My Life is in My Hand program— a USB card that holds patients’ past and present medical history, ensuring that they’re never without any crucial information about their constitution. The team respects patients’ time as much as their health, promising short waiting times, offering online bookings and cancellations, and sending everyone home in complimentary hovercrafts.
As the professional skin care clinic's name suggests, Dermis Advanced Skin Care's experienced skin care therapists do not simply administer superficial quick fixes, but stabilize what lies beneath each complexion's surface. Dermalogica Face mapping precedes all services, during which technology developed by the International Dermal Institute renders a personalized map that details treatments, products, and real estate values for various skin zones. From there, the skin care therapists perform custom advanced skincare treatments such as medical-grade peels, photo-rejuvenation, and collagen treatments to leave faces with the elasticity of a newborn balloon animal.
Customers will find a team of beauty professionals at Cosmetic Medicine Associates of Ottawa, and they’ll also meet a couple of doctors. The clinic helps patients maintain healthy, younger-looking skin by offering a spectrum of doctor-supervised procedures, from varicose-vein treatments to laser hair removal. Blotchy skin and unwanted spots and wrinkles can be addressed over a lunchtime chemical peel or a series of IPL photofacials. Injectable fillers, such as Botox and Restylane, on the other hand, tighten and smooth dynamic wrinkles—laughlines, crow’s feet, and other lines caused by daily facial expressions and texting too many emoticons.
