The certified hair designers and aestheticians at Stars Beauty Centre each possess no less than a decade of industry experience. It’s this experience that enables them to refigure heads and frames with spa-like techniques powered by professional-grade Redken hair products and Shellac nail products. Each visit to the salon begins with a complimentary consultation to allow stylists and clients to hone in on the most flattering treatment. The centre is sheltered by the elegant surroundings of the Stage West Hotel, which has housed Stars Beauty Centre for over 20 years, or 140 dog years.
With thousands of satisfied clients across Ontario, Hairfree Laser Skin Clinics continues to help men and women achieve their ideal looks using advanced cosmetic technologies that are safe for men and women with all skin types. A buffet of services greets arrivals, from laser hair removal and photo facials to vein treatments and teeth whitening. A product line boasting antioxidants and exfoliating acids helps maintain desired looks at home, and the trained staff works with client goals to help eliminate problem areas, even if they ask nicely to stick around.
Surinda Gill has more than a decade of experience in the medical-cosmetic industry, but she doesn't keep her knowledge of advanced, non-surgical aesthetic treatments to herself. She dedicated five years of her life to helping med-spa professionals by training more than 450 doctors, nurses, and technicians in the art of laser hair removal. At Skinflex Phototherapy Laser Clinic, she focuses her expertise on her clientele, using cutting-edge techniques and technology to create drastic cosmetic improvements.
The clinic offers a variety of traditional spa treatments?including facials, massages, and waxing sessions?although there is an emphasis on medically-based procedures. Using a LightSheer diode cosmetic laser system, the staff can easily zap away unwanted stubble or entertain neighbourhood cats. Microdermabrasion treatments, meanwhile, improve skin tone and texture by reducing uneven pigmentation and removing dead cells.
Between their LightSheer Diode, Apogee Elite, and Nd:YAG technology, the technicians at Forever Laser can treat nearly any skin type. Broadly speaking, each laser does the same thing—removes unwanted hair, spider veins, or pigmentation using noninvasive laser beams—but each has its own distinguishing features. The LightSheer, for instance, has a skin-cooling ChillTip, whereas the Apogee's rapid-fire pulses result in quicker treatments. But if zapping lasers bring back flashbacks of elementary portrait backdrops, the staff can refresh complexions using traditional techniques such as chemical peels, microdermabrasions, and facials infused with Yon-Ka Paris' botanical-based products.
The equipment and procedures at Beauskin Laser Clinic may be highly technical, but the staff does its part to keep the experience warm and comforting. The medical aesthetic experts take time to discuss each patient's aging or skincare concerns thoroughly, and will help direct them to the service that best satisfies their needs, be it Botox, laser hair removal, or Titan skin tightening. And, to ensure clients continue to like what they see in the mirror or a stranger's sunglasses, the crew at Beauskin also stock the facility with take-home products from brands like Dr. Baumann and Jane Iredale.
