Spa Utopia’s services range from those of a salon to those of a med-spa, recognizing the connection between medical and more purely aesthetic issues. Facials can purify skin or minimize signs of aging, and they also calm rosacea outbreaks. A LightSheer Diode system combats unwanted stubble during laser hair-removal sessions, and beams from a Fox Diode system attack toenail fungus. Massage therapists use styles ranging from traditional Swedish to deep tissue, and they’re glad to combine modalities to target unique troubles such as lower back pain or shoulders that won’t stop shimmying.

Clients can concentrate attention on an array of beauty and body needs by booking a couples room or VIP suite for an afternoon of private treatments. Even the public areas of the spa evince a strong taste for luxury—clients walking in are greeted by a marble-topped reception desk and a giant, faux-stone archway engraved with the spa’s name before passing between polished pillars leading to a grand fountain.

However, as its name implies, The Dye Lot focuses on colouring services, offering cutting-edge Goldwell colour treatments and the Davines ammonia-free colour line to create natural-looking highlights. And speaking of natural, the salon also engages in sustainability efforts, including participating in Green Circle Salons' recycling program.

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.
