The aestheticians at Dream Beauty Lounge use both traditional and high-tech spa services to improve their clients' appearances. Good old-fashioned European facials leave the complexion cleansed and toned, while microdermabrasion buffs away dull skin cells through mechanical exfoliation, like a massage from a rough-handed robot. Waxing treatments render body parts hair-free for a few weeks, whereas laser hair removal yields longer-lasting results.
At Contour Laser and Skin Concepts, the staff members take their clients' trust very seriously. So seriously, in fact, that staff members offer no service that they have not tested and endorsed themselves. Approved treatments include skin tightening and hair removal with NaturaLight IPL lasers and gel nail polish from Bio Sculpture that can last through up to six weeks of wear or two weeks of tickling porcupines. Staff members use their in-house training to expertly perform each procedure as music and a convivial atmosphere help transform sessions into social experiences. Clients can enjoy complimentary beverages and snacks or sip champagne for special occasions.
At Heights Laser Centre, a highly qualified team of aestheticians aim to restore faces to their natural splendour. Treatments kick off with a complimentary consultation to ensure clients select the right treatment for their skin and Myers-Briggs personality type. During the glycolic peel, a skin-spert dispatches acidic gel across the face, erasing fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. The treatment can also evict dirt and oil from pores, combatting nefarious acne hordes. The 15-minute treatment safely renews faces, which clients can then use to charm librarians into renewing overdue library books.
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.
