Vivianna Sigurdson started in the beauty industry more than 30 years ago, and for the last 13 years she has channelled her burgeoning body of knowledge into building a brand. In the spa, aestheticians and registered massage therapists also draw upon a host of other earthy elixirs. Herbal wraps and brown-sugar scrubs nourish weathered bodies, and minerals and essential oils infuse warm soaks during manicures and pedicures. Cushy seating throughout the spa enables patrons to sip a beverage and catch up with their laps before continuing into a hot-stone massage or one of 11 facial treatments.
Like the backstage area of a theatre, the ceilings in Pierino Scarfo Salon's waiting room extend high into an intriguing darkness. Artfully sculpted chandeliers dangle from the shadowy rafters, illuminating walls shelved with colourful product lines. In the styling area, hair artists and technicians consult with each client to discuss desired styles and current hair trends. They perform cutting, styling, colouring, retexturing, and nourishing treatments at each station with products packed with pure flower and plant extracts. Lively green accents offset the sleek colours and mod decor while also emphasizing a commitment to the natural world and the salon's enthusiasm for the Shrek franchise.
As the professional skin care clinic's name suggests, Dermis Advanced Skin Care's experienced skin care therapists do not simply administer superficial quick fixes, but stabilize what lies beneath each complexion's surface. Dermalogica Face mapping precedes all services, during which technology developed by the International Dermal Institute renders a personalized map that details treatments, products, and real estate values for various skin zones. From there, the skin care therapists perform custom advanced skincare treatments such as medical-grade peels, photo-rejuvenation, and collagen treatments to leave faces with the elasticity of a newborn balloon animal.
As the name implies, Hair Expectations Salon and Spa offers myriad haircare services. In addition to precise cuts and vibrant colour, stylists repair strands with Moroccanoil restorative treatments and decorate manes with tinsel, jewels, feather extensions, and tattoos. However, the other half of Hair Expectations offers numerous services as well. Its spa pampers guests with relaxing seasonal sugar scrubs and soothing massages from aestheticians. Staff members also offer custom men's or women's facials and mani-pedis. In addition, clients can choose their preferred method of hair removal, whether that's sugaring, waxing, IPL hair reduction, or electrolysis.
The aestheticians at Precision Laser Spa leave nothing to chance. Using the Spectral Skin Analysis system, they visually audit each new client's skin under three spectrums of light, ensuring an accurate diagnosis of any skin issues. This careful use of technology characterizes all of the spa's services, which range from traditional facials to laser tattoo removal.
Technicians use either a diode laser or intense pulsed light to permanently remove hair from clients of all skin tones. The team at Precision Laser treats chronic conditions such as dry skin or acne through targeted skincare programs that schedule multiple sessions in cycles of five to nine weeks. One such treatment?the carbon spectra peel? is even exclusive to the clinic: a non-invasive carbon laser exfoliates skin without the harsh side effects often associated with laser resurfacing, yielding immediate skin-refreshing results.
At Oxygen Medi Spa, techs bless clients with shinier facades and slimmer shadows through a suite of beautification services. Their nonsurgical facial rejuvenation stimulates collagen production, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and tightens and contours fa?ades. Microdermabrasion sessions remove two to four layers of skin, leaving the skin smoother and reducing the appearance of fine lines, pores, and shallow scarring. Teeth-whitening treatments use blue LEDs to break up stains caused by morning coffees, afternoon cigarette breaks, and late-night beet gorging.
In addition to sprucing up worn-down looks, Oxygen Medi Spa's techs also reshape bodies with the help of ultrasonic-liposuction treatments. Their ultrasound-spraying hand-pieces send the waves deep into unwanted fat cells, destroying them and helping clients shuck layers of pudge without resorting to surgery.
