Medical procedures and spa treatments share a home at Allure Skin and Laser Clinic, where medical aestheticians reinvigorate skin with facial peels, laser hair removal, permanent makeup, and other treatments that blur the line between the laboratory and the day spa. Though their specialties vary, the staff members share a common philosophy: treat each guest as an individual who deserves to be pampered.
This philosophy pervades every aspect of the spa, from the smile and steamy cup of herbal tea that await guests upon their arrival to the treatments themselves—each of which begins with a personal consultation and a customized skin analysis. The aestheticians often call upon advanced implements such as a special skin scanner to determine which treatments to deploy. Their considerable skills also allow the team to camouflage scars, whiten teeth, and obliterate rebellious planets with their laser devices.
Beauty-Full Spa is a catchall for spa, med spa, and wellness services. The staff schedules everything from facials and massages to diamond peel microdermabrasions and laser tattoo-removal treatments. But the staff pays attention to more than just appearances. They also offer weight loss programs, cleanses, and detoxifying infrared sauna sessions, which simulate the conditions of the rain forests on Venus.
Over the last 10 years, registered massage therapist Jennifer Gould has helped alleviate pain and relax clients with AIDS, multiple sclerosis, autism, and depression. In addition to being certified in deep tissue massages, her specialties range from sports and pre- and postnatal massages to infant massages—a modality held close to her heart after two of her children were born prematurely. Jennifer’s therapeutic massages also help ease the effects of arthritis, migraines, and poor posture.
The staff at A Touch of Paradise Esthetics boast expertise that covers nearly every square inch of the body, and they perform services with the singular aim of making guests look and feel their best. Starting at the toes, pedicures doll up feet for trips to the beach, and waxing and laser hair removal rid the entire body of unwanted bristle. More than 10 types of facials bring out each client's inner glow, and more powerful treatments such as microdermabrasion are brought in to deal with deep wrinkles and frown lines. The staff also work to maintain a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere, which is why clients are asked to turn off their phones and leave extra-crinkly potato-chip bags in the car.
At Body Bliss Beautique, trained technicians perform a wide range of aesthetic and wellness treatments. Prior to each service, they provide a complimentary consultation to determine each client's aesthetic concerns, from wrinkles and sunspots to unwanted hair and yellowing teeth. During mani-pedis, nail technicians coat digits with any of the shop?s 25-plus different Shellac colours, each formulated to resist chips caused by car keys and aggressive keytaring for up to two weeks. The skincare specialists also uplift sagging skin with dermal fillers and skin-tightening photofacials, and provide such wellness treatments as chiropractic services and infrared-sauna sessions.
The stylists at Alleyne's Grooming For Men employ old-fashioned barbering techniques to give clients the aesthetics of a modern gentleman. The vintage interior includes traditional leather and chrome chairs, which cradle visitors during their session (see building tour here). Using massage oils, hot shaving lather and heated-towel compresses, techs polish men's faces and sculpt hairstyles more masculine than Thor’s racecar collection. The staff specializes in helping men appear elegantly at important events, such as weddings and job interviews.
