When Cecil B. Spa & Laser opened in 1979, it was a makeup studio—origins the team continues to honor to this day. Despite how much the salon has grown, mineral makeup lessons with Jane Iredale cosmetics remain one of the team's touchstones. During a typical session, makeup artists guide clients step by step through creating flattering custom looks that include natural lips or smoky eyes that require no matches.
Today the spa branches out far beyond makeup with a host of wellness and beauty treatments. The spa utilizes the Italian wax Comfort Zone, which promotes slower and finer hair growth. Massages, for example, range from classic Swedish kneads to Western Thai massage, a mix of pressure point work and stretching. Laser beauty services, meanwhile, include laser hair removal and a cocktail of laser treatments designed to nonsurgically produce the look of a facelift.
Along with his wife, certified aesthetician Wendy Killick, Eve Aesthetics Skincare and Laser Centre's Dr. Geoffrey W. Killick addresses each patient's individual aesthetic and cosmetic needs with services that include injections and laser technology. A longstanding practitioner of Botox for its therapeutic uses, Dr. Killick administers doses that soften wrinkles, reduce migraines, and diminish excessive sweating. While the Killicks’ lasers incinerate unwanted hair and treat rosacea, their pulsed and infrared lights work to lessen the appearance of sun damage, remove spider veins, and tighten skin. The aestheticians can also correct fine lines with several peels and add volume to lips with injections from half and quarter syringes.
Though Azure Skin Care may sound like your typical spa, it's actually a hybrid of both a spa and a medical aesthetics center. This means that the aestheticians deliver clinical-quality results, but they still pay attention to the little things that brighten up each client’s experience. The staff performs facials, waxing treatments, laser treatments, and massages, and the clinic’s board-certified doctors supervise procedures that are medical in nature, such as Botox injections. The whole space is distinguished by white tiles, neutral hues, and floral accents, making it as relaxing as a hammock tied between two classical violinists.
Per its name, Evolution Beauty Bar has changed substantially since it first opened as Casbah Evolution in 2008. Today, a talented team of aestheticians, makeup specialists, and hair stylists focus on providing the skin care, make-up applications, eyelash extensions, and hair care via its full-service menu. Beauty artists apply assorted organic products from brands such as Eminence to blank facial canvases, while waxing services help clients attain baby-smooth skin. The make-up bar boasts scores of naturally sourced, organic, or local bath and body brands, all sealed with a stamp of fun, girl-powered approval.
With more than 20 years of experience, Doctors Barbara and Daniel Yip share a demeanour that their patients call "kind, personable, and empathetic" during a broad range of aesthetic services. Together, the two combat the external signs of aging while also infusing clients with internal energy and vitality. In order to reveal their clients' natural beauty, the doctors employ rigorously tested techniques proven to tighten aging skin, treat acne, or remove unwanted hairs that beg to be shaved off so they can explore the world.
Scalpels and sutures have no place at Celebrity Laser Care. Instead, the clinic's skilled technicians use high-tech treatments to help tighten skin, contour curves, and eliminate unsightly marks. The facility offers a host of nonsurgical methods to combat signs of aging; for instance, the skin-tightening treatment heats the skin beneath the surface to help tighten almost any bodily area, such as the face, neck, abdomen, or arms. The Limelight IPL targets brown spots and sun damage, and works even better when matched with the exfoliating, diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatment. Beyond treating signs of aging, the technicians can blast body hair and swat away spider-vein webs and their confused arachnid inhabitants, all with their powerful, but safe, laser systems. Upon entering the crisp-white facility, patrons will notice a gallery of pharmaceutical-grade skincare products, such as Obagi, DCL, and Jane Iredale cosmetics, which may be used during facials or other services.
