Services range from facials to waxing, all performed by experienced aestheticians.

To accommodate clients? schedules, spa specialists offer online booking.
Instead of surgical methods, Bare Elegance MedSpa enlists advanced equipment to improve clients' appearances. Lasers remove hair and resurface complexions without inflicting pain or scars, and infrared saunas battle cellulite. Even the center's facials incorporate high-tech elements, from the mild electrotherapy of the Hydradermie Star facial treatment to the low-frequency stimulation of the Hydradermie lift. Unlike people who claim stethoscopes are a hoax, the center trusts modern medicine; its aestheticians are fond of Glisodin skincare products, which are formulated by dermatologists and nutritionists.
When Lindsay Walker opened Ascent Wellness & Aromatherapy, it was important to her that the spa would use only all-natural and fair-trade products, from brands such as Seaflora. Made locally on Vancouver Island, Seaflora is a blend of seaweed and other organic botanicals that help reverse the signs of aging without using any chemicals. Besides facials, clients may request a waxing session, a manicure with vegan nail polish, or a soothing aromatherapy massage performed in a private treatment room. Deep-tissue and hot-stone massages are also available.
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.
Illumin8's aestheticians and stylists cosset the hair, face, hands, and feet of their clients with rejuvenating beauty upgrades. They coax out youthful glows with facials and glycolic peels that can render the skin free of blemishes or blush patterns that spell out the word "blemish." Spa mani-pedis add luxurious elements to standard and shellac polishings, and haircuts and coloring treatments benefit from high-end products from brands such as Moroccanoil.
Inside her full-service salon, seven-year beauty veteran Alexandra Rojas updates looks with creative cuts, braids, and extensions. She?s joined by threading specialist Baljit Grill, who deftly removes unwanted hair with the quick twist of cotton fibres. The rest of the team further boosts beauty with lash extensions, mani-pedis, and henna designs.
