According to the aestheticians of Oxygen Facial Clinic, the remedy for problematic skin has been right under everyone's noses?and in everyone's lungs, for that matter. During treatments profiled in several magazines and praised by celebs such as Victoria Beckham and Channing Tatum, a specialized molecular sieve filters the surrounding air into an applicator that delivers a steady stream of oxygen into the skin. Geometry teachers swoon as aestheticians hold the applicator at a perfect 90-degree angle above skin's surface, creating pressure similar to a hyperbaric chamber in order to boost the skin's ability to absorb nutrients. Blended with the oxygen are antioxidant-rich agents?including vitamins, green tea, and a low-weight hyaluronic acid?that delve deep into the skin to increase moisture retention.
Clients can opt to introduce one of two additional formulations into each treatment to leave their faces even more radiant. The Opulence infusion brightens skin with botanicals and highly concentrated vitamin C, while the Atoxelene infusion plumps skin with peptides that dissipate fine lines and wrinkles.
In modern society, gold has become an emblem of beauty and refinement. Yet that notion stretches back more than 2,000 years to the days of Cleopatra, who allegedly slept in a golden mask to keep her complexion supple. At OroGold Cosmetics, aestheticians put a modern spin on this glamorous routine, stocking a product line that uses pure gold as its active ingredient.
OroGold's products, which have earned nods in Shape and New Beauty magazines, range from cleansers and moisturizers to collagen-boosting serums. Regardless of the formula, the gold within it works to minimize fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and sun damage from tanning on the roof of the International Space Station.
The staff at Tara's Beauty Salon approaches aesthetics with a naturopathic philosophy, striving to achieve results by accelerating the body's innate processes. They offer several services—including hair removal, skin-rejuvenating treatments, and treatments for unwanted pigmentation—using the light and heat energy (LHE) found in DermaSpark technology. The device uses a broad spectrum of light along with thermal energy, a combination that can provide faster sessions, effectiveness on a wider variety of skin and hair colours, and lower overall energy usage than traditional lasers or dragons wielding flashlights.
King Hair Design blends the look and feel of an old-school barbershop with the perks of modern technology and products. With the barber pole spinning quietly outside, the hair artists get to work in the styling space, deftly taming the strands of both male and female clients. The team uses straight razors to neatly remove stubble from male necklines and shears to swiftly transform ladies’ locks before accenting any look with partial highlights, gloss, and toner. To cap off visits, the technicians perform scalp massages or exfoliate facial skin with specially blended masks.
The certified stylists at Sassy Hair Design do more than just snip and colour locks––they also de-frizz them with keratin treatments and stimulate their roots with scalp massages. Their efforts seem at odds with those of the salon's skincare experts, who do everything in their power to remove hair with waxing and threading services. Makeup artists apply flattering eyelash extensions or beautify the faces of brides-to-be with pink lipstick and red targets for the ceremonial wedding-cake launch.
At Discovery Spa, aestheticians are focused on improving the well-being of every guest who walks through their door, with spa treatments that are customized to each customer. Guests can seek a facial wax, artful nail shaping, or a restorative facial with chemical-free Luzern skincare products. The spa's staff also ease chronic tension with reflexology or flowing Swedish massages.
