Laser Light and Sound tones and pampers client bodies with an array of laser- and sound-wave-based procedures. Health Canada–approved and featured on a variety of television programs, Zerona treatments shape bodies and reduce fat through the noninvasive rays of Erchonia cold-laser therapy. Though ineffective against most supervillains, the cold lasers swiftly emulsify subcutaneous adipose tissue in up to 10 areas at once, including stomach, back, hips, thighs, buttocks, chin, neck, and arms. Low-level-laser stimulation disrupts fat-cell membranes, gently releasing cellular contents into the surrounding space without damage to nearby capillaries or civilian cells. Superfluous fat-cell contents leave the body during its normal detoxification cycles with the aid of white blood cells.
To slow the aging process, the staff at Almost Famous Laser Corp opts for advanced technologies. For instance, the Elōs-powered Syneron eMax laser removes unwanted hair, pigmentation, and spider veins, and the ReFirme and Triniti treatments help tighten skin. For more traditional cosmetic care, they also can rejuvenate complexions using chemical peels.
Amid warm-toned walls, decorative screens, and pastel paintings, Shelley Rinas puts lasers to work to oust unwanted body hair, minimize the appearance of brown spots and varicose veins, and tighten skin with four categories of treatments. An electrologist for more than 25 years, Ms. Rinas has continued her education to keep herself up-to-date with newer laser technologies, such as IPL.
The anti-aging experts at Vine Vera believe they have found the secret to staying youthful: red wine. But unlike most stores devoted to wine, Vine Vera does not encourage customers to drink its wares. Instead, it repurposes wine grapes, packing them into beauty products in order to combat wrinkles and free radicals with an antioxidant called resveratrol.
Vine Vera encourages skin to soak up the antioxidant with the Chianti Collection, which brightens dull skin, the Zinfandel Collection, which works to protect skin from sun damage, and the Pinot Noir Collection, which aims to repair damaged skin. The Merlot Eye Collection finally gives users a way to reduce puffiness that doesn’t require placing frozen grapes over eyelids.

VI Fitness?a workout mainstay with a dozen locations peppering Vancouver Island?splits its real estate between coed and women?s only gyms. Coed locations line the floors with a wide variety of strength and stability equipment, free weights, and cardio machines; women?s locations host a similar array of gear but in designs tailored specifically for women. The two gym models are otherwise similar, hosting yoga classes and group exercise courses such as VI Fitness?s signature indoor cycling.
Alternatively, each gym?s team of personal trainers creates customized regimens for patrons with the help of the Polar BodyAge system that measures individual fitness levels. The sessions also motivate athletes and ensure they use proper technique, significantly reducing the risk of injury, overexertion, or the embarrassment of accidentally bench-pressing a treadmill. The on-site child minding watches over exercisers? little ones while secure rental lockers keep personal effects locked up.
