Champions of beautifying faces and bodies via noninvasive, advanced technologies, Renew Beauty Med Spa’s highly knowledgeable staff of medically trained and accredited physicians, nurses, and aestheticians spends their waking hours obsessing over how to better others’ skin. The staff upholds their desire to remain on the cutting edge of new procedures and products through hours of meticulous research, showcasing their findings by constantly updating the spa’s menu of services. Evidence of the team’s shared ambition can be found as they work their aesthetic magic in five offices everyday, removing unwanted hirsute patches via laser hair removal or expunging coffee, wine, and grass stains from grins during teeth-whitening sessions. As firm believers that a glowing complexion requires a commitment to healthy decisions, the team works hard to equip their patients with a posttreatment maintenance plan.
At Vera Medi-Spa and Salon, beauty isn't the ultimate goal; it’s merely a step in the staff's ongoing quest to help boost each client's self-esteem. To help customers feel more comfortable in their own skin, the spa's professionals wield Palomar laser technology to banish unwanted hair or clear away unsightly veins, age spots, and other imperfections. Those looking to repair their love-hate relationship with an outdated hairdo or glued-on top hat can put their heads in the hands of the salon's stylists, who update strands with L'Oréal Professionnel Matrix and colour products. Because stress can have a large impact on well-being, the spa invites guests to put their feet up during relaxing mani-pedis or lie down to enjoy the tension-taming benefits of an aromatherapy massage, and facials help erase signs of tension on the face with anti-aging benefits from Guinot products.
The trained technicians at Divine Secrets aim to make beauty a bit less fleeting. They work to streamline daily routines and enhance natural beauty with permanent makeup, also known as cosmetic tattooing. With careful, steady hands, staff members apply pigments to the eyelids, lips, and eyebrows with their digital Nouveau tattoo machine. They fully vet each possible client to ensure that they're eligible, and use sterile equipment and standard precautions to avoid cross-contamination and pathogens. As permanent eyeliner, lip liner, or lip shading is applied, topical and local anaesthetics ward off pain. After each treatment, technicians counsel clients on how to best care for the sensitive area during the healing process.
The Smart Tan–certified staff at Summer Illusions Tanning & Spa taps its wealth of training to help clients safely and quickly build up summery tans. As guests arrive, the staff stands ready in the lobby to serve as a depository of knowledge on which of the salon’s UV, automated spray, and custom airbrush tans best suit their skin types and ability to look stylish in tanning goggles. The experts then lead their clients to an easy-to-use UV bed, inside an automated MyMyst spray-tanning booth, or beneath an airbrushing wand for custom spray tans that create contoured, streak-free glows for up to 10 days. To keep skin beach ready, clients can enter the detox sauna for some added help with weight loss and skin elasticity.
At Rejuvederme, clients can make fresh starts with noninvasive cosmetic procedures and the guidance of a cosmetic physician and a nurse. The physician meets with clients for complimentary consultations to determine skincare needs and possible treatments. After consultations, the staff recommends services to tone, de-fuzz, or clarify skin with noninvasive lasers and Obagi Skincare products.
The clinic has the modern, spacious feel of a hotel lobby: A frosted glass wall divides the front desk from the waiting area, which then opens to private treatment rooms. Brightening the palette of white and mint, vases brim with birds of paradise, palm fronds, and spider mums.
Real Tan’s owners originally opened their doors more than 20 years ago with a salon in Scarborough. The single location couldn't keep up with tanning demands, leading to a relocation to Mississauga and a recently opened second location in Thornhill. Along the way, Real Tan has expanded its specialties to include ultra-bronzing Ergoline beds, Playboy spray tanning, and teeth whitening, which brightens teeth up to eight shades and lasts longer than gargling white-out.
