At Urban Spa Escape, a team of aestheticians combines lasers and organic skincare products in their repertoire of skin-rejuvenating treatments. Epidermal elixirs from RVB Holistic Products find their way into nourishing facials, coating visages in vitamin-rich natural ingredients, while their intense pulsed light laser system keeps skin looking youthful by whisking away hair or reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Helmed by physician Dr. Deniz Akyurekli, the beauty bolsterers at The Best You, Centre for Personal Enhancement educate clients before beginning each nonsurgical cosmetic procedure. Skin specialists harness intense pulsed light therapy during the IPL photofacial, targeting age spots, freckles, and red spider veins in sessions that typically take less than an hour. The light energy absorbs into select pigments, heating dermal aberrations and convincing them that reality is an illusion. Patients may experience a slight stinging sensation akin to kissing a cactus, which therapists minimize by applying a freezing gel. Skin may also appear pink and slightly puffy for up to a few hours. Some clients achieve a desired look in one session, and others may require several appointments spaced every three weeks before obtaining optimal results.
Calling upon three decades of professional experience, First Choice Haircutters’ team of seasoned snippers reshapes locks using current and creative styling trends. Collaborative consultations help stylists share their personal tips, such as "cocktailing" two different styling products to enhance their benefits or wielding Designline moisturizing products to repair hair damaged by the frigid assault of winter. Stylists welcome drop-in visits, allowing customers to tame hair right before work or right after a lunch date in a wind tunnel.
Relaxation, peace, and tranquility—at The Spa at Belfountain, that's what staff members hope to inspire with their spa services. Of course, there are some beauty benefits. During a Rose Bliss facial, all skin types benefit from the caress of soft rose petals, whereas OPI pedicures leave feet soft with beautifully painted toes. Alternative treatments, such as reiki and reflexology, are also available.
Panache Spa's bevy of personalized treatments is designed to improve skin health. During a body-polish treatment, trained aestheticians expertly slough surfaces, removing dead skin cells and exorcizing epidermal demons into exfoliated oblivion. While the polish bedazzles pelts, a peppermint scalp massage melts away cranial stressors for a head-to-toe rejuvenation. A postscrub, 14-jet Swiss-style shower eradicates residue, revealing a smoother, more radiant exterior, and a 30-minute aromatherapy massage snaps at remaining tension like a sleep-deprived rubber band.
Pamperme Day Spa relieves wearied bodies with an array of spa services dished out in a spacious facility. Spa visitors begin by easing into a cozy recliner and letting one of Pamperme's attentive spa wizards cast a podiatric spell with a full spa pedicure. Long-suffering shoe tenants are treated to a sea-salt exfoliating scrub before warm paraffin and a massage release any tension left over from going to the market. Clients then have their choice of nail polish before moving onto a thorough facial treatment. Pamperme's facial, which includes complimentary product samples, weaves together a sequence of deep cleansing and exfoliation, a relaxing facial massage, and a mask and moisturizer. The invigorating medley of products and peels is specially designed to restore visages ravaged from aging, harsh UV rays, and apple-bobbing addictions. Both treatments take approximately two hours to complete.
