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.
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.
Mar Skin Care Laser Clinic gilds youthfulness onto exasperated faces with noninvasive laser procedures and deeply moisturizing facials. Calm distressed cheeks with an ultimate hydration facial that dispels moisture into the skin like a hose to an out-of-town neighbour's above-ground pool (a $90 value). Estrange exteriors from age spots, rosacea, wrinkles, and sun damage by summoning the astute skills of the medi-spa Palomar photofacial (a $250 value). After procuring the noninvasive intensity of pulsed-light technology, an adroit skincare professional stimulates dermal cells in an effort to encourage collagen renewal and elastin production, which can leave visages smoother, more vibrant, and more willing to take on a bulldog tongue. Though only one photo-rejuvenation session is included in this Groupon, multiple procedures are recommended for the best results.
Before Sherry Subratii opened Expo Hair Studio & Salon Care, she apprenticed under Guy Lucci and trained at both the Marvel Beauty School and the Schwarzkopf Academy. She draws on her 15 years of experience as she gives guidance to a team of stylists and reshapes hairscapes with cuts, colour treatments, and other services. Perms send waves through tresses, and Japanese straightening treatments work some of the kinks out of frizzy coiffures. When makeup artists and aestheticians aren't busy pampering guests with spa packages, massages, waxing, and mani-pedis, they beautify brides before they roller skate gracefully down the aisle.
Every haircut and finishing treatment doled out at Salon Nate comes with a personal consultation. Also included: a soothing scalp massage, cleansing shampoo, and conditioning treatment. This commitment to pampering and personal attention extends to all the treatments here. Colouring services are performed with a combination of artistry and technique. Facials are conducted with the goal of making the skin soft and radiant. Other services on the docket include face and body waxing, mani-pedis, and makeup applications for a soon-to-be-bride or overripe jack-o'-lantern.
