Cosmetic care that stops at the surface is only fighting half the battle. This is the philosophy of the staff at Eternal Wellness MedSpa & Salon, and its various aestheticians and technicians aim to rejuvenate and revitalize clients' spirits with their beauty services. To do so, they incorporate traditional spa techniques, such as Swedish and deep-tissue massage, with medical-grade products and technology. A cosmetic laser system and Vibraderm exfoliating machine fit right in with the center's arsenal of aesthetic equipment, which also includes infrared light skin-tightening devices. Colon hydrotherapy machines and 21-day cleanses help clients shed weight and toxins. Even something as straightforward as a new hairstyle or freshly polished set of nails can revitalize spirits and give clients the confidence they need to finally assemble their home's particle accelerator.
At Canadian Beauty College, students overseen by instructors work on actual clients to gain hands-on aesthetic training in the student clinic, while already certified aestheticians or medical doctors beautify clients in the onsite med spa. The students hydrate skin during facials, massage tense backs, and wax off unwanted hair, and the aestheticians inject dermal fillers into wrinkles, fade acne scars with a laser, and contour bodies with radio-frequency skin-tightening treatments. Before undergoing any of the med spa’s services, clients consult with a medical doctor in order to discuss expectations and beauty goals, such as learning how to develop a tan by standing in front of car headlights.
At Escape Studio Hair & Spa, stylists and aestheticians aim to create an unforgettable experience for every client. They believe that a trip to the spa should be enjoyed and therefore recommend that clients budget enough time to kick back, relax, and learn a whale song or two. The studio's stylists offer a full menu of hair services, complete with colouring treatments and cuts for women, men, and children. In the spa, aestheticians wax body hair and pamper nails, backs, and skin. Laser treatments round out the spa's offerings?aestheticians use the highly concentrated light to reduce hair and diminish the appearance of sun spots, hyperpigmentation, and vessels.
Anthony Cali draws from more than 12 years experience in hairstyling and fashion to transform hair. Cali and his team of stylists perform a number of services that nourish, perm, or refresh hair after taking a swim in a giant fondue-cheese pool at an eccentric millionaire’s party. Keratin treatments infuse hair with proteins and 100% natural human-hair extensions add length to strands. Stylists use products from label.m, L'Oreal, Purology, Keratin Complex, and milk_shake during cuts, colors, and styling services that include curling, updos, and flat-ironing.
Hema Naik, the licensed aesthetician behind Beauty Glow Medi Spa, helps her patrons relax from life's stresses while she creates the beautiful bodies they crave. Inside her elegant, purple-tinted spa, visitors enjoy pampering treatments such as facials, microdermabrasion, and slimming body wraps. Unwanted hair falls to waxing, threading, and intense pulsed light therapy, while LED light sessions balance skin tone as they stimulate the growth of face-firming collagen––a process that can help heal acne scars, kill bacteria, and provide extra padding against in-coming pies.
Helmed by Dominic Bazinet, who has trained at hair academies in London, Paris, and Los Angeles as well as in New York with Nick Arrojo of TLC's What Not to Wear, the team of stylists at Salon Bardot, an Aveda Concept salon, shape manes to suit each client's personal style. Specializing in colour correction, stylists re-tint hair to the perfect hue in addition to brushing in fresh sun-kissed highlights, repairing damage with conditioning treatments, and blow-drying newly trimmed tresses to a glossy shine as sleek as a waterfall of Lamborghinis.
