Although reverse aging is impossible, looking younger isn’t. For the licensed aestheticians of Skintelligence MedSpa, the latter is their goal for each of their clients. Through noninvasive treatments such as the skin-tightening RF Body Contouring and Skin Lifting regimen and the Comodex anti-acne treatment, they help their customers achieve younger-looking skin by reducing wrinkles, age spots, and pores that complain about their aching backs.
Dr. David Ellis pulls double duty as a professor in the Department of Otolaryngology (head and neck surgery) at the University of Toronto and as the physician at the helm of Art of Facial Surgery. At the latter, he oversees a staff of plastic surgeons, aestheticians, and laser technicians as they refurbish patients’ outward appearances. Their mission is to achieve the best results for their clients through a combination of proven treatments and patient education. Technicians use specialized lasers to remove unwanted hair, tighten skin by promoting the growth of collagen, and entertain patients with light shows choreographed to Journey’s greatest hits.

Viva also outfits clients with health-related products, including supplements, TENS units, and custom-made orthotics, which slip perfectly into sneakers and snorkeling fins.

Whether subsequently called into a treatment room for a facial, hair extensions, or a Shellac manicure, each visitor can count on the staff’s strict commitment to clean and safe practices. Other beauty services include eyebrow threading, waxing with either hot or strip wax, and personalized makeup application.
