Skilled therapists and aestheticians at Naturalase customize spa treatments to suit complexions of all ages and skin types. Skin savants strive to not only bolster the appearance of clients’ facades with Naturalase pulsed-light systems, but to also nourish and revitalize below the surface with organic, vitamin-rich products by Jane Iredale and Èminence. The relaxation gurus furnish the candlelit waiting room with plush leather couches and the occasional mariachi band to serenade patrons as they drift into private treatment rooms.
Instead of surgical methods, Bare Elegance MedSpa enlists advanced equipment to improve clients' appearances. Lasers remove hair and resurface complexions without inflicting pain or scars, and infrared saunas battle cellulite. Even the center's facials incorporate high-tech elements, from the mild electrotherapy of the Hydradermie Star facial treatment to the low-frequency stimulation of the Hydradermie lift. Unlike people who claim stethoscopes are a hoax, the center trusts modern medicine; its aestheticians are fond of Glisodin skincare products, which are formulated by dermatologists and nutritionists.
After giving up careers as a teacher and hotel-management supervisor, Moazma Bhangu decided to follow her true passion: advanced laser skincare. Today, as the certified head technician at Heavenly Images, she refurbishes clients' bodies and faces using medical techniques such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and spider-vein removal. Her specialty, however, is nonsurgical laser treatments, such as ReFirme, which she wields to remove unwanted hair, smooth away wrinkles, and intimidate temporary tattoos of secret agents. She also customizes treatments, performing photofacials designed for Asian complexions as well as EDP therapy, which combines microdermabrasion, medical infusions, and LED light therapy. In addition to providing treatments, Moazma constantly educates her patients on skin health—and can prescribe skincare products by Obagi, Priori, Riversol, and PCA Skin.
The staff at Tara's Beauty Salon approaches aesthetics with a naturopathic philosophy, striving to achieve results by accelerating the body's innate processes. They offer several services—including hair removal, skin-rejuvenating treatments, and treatments for unwanted pigmentation—using the light and heat energy (LHE) found in DermaSpark technology. The device uses a broad spectrum of light along with thermal energy, a combination that can provide faster sessions, effectiveness on a wider variety of skin and hair colours, and lower overall energy usage than traditional lasers or dragons wielding flashlights.
At The Katwalk Salon, a team of beauty professionals from renowned schools such as Aveda, Vidal Sassoon, Blanche Macdonald, and Dominelli maintains a continuous training schedule to keep up with the latest trends. In addition to Aveda products, hair stylists transform 'dos with Schwarzkopf colour, the Brocato smoothing system, and Great Lengths hair extensions. Staffers pamper nails and skin with naturally derived products and loosen taut muscles with relaxing massages.
The compassionate crew does regular charity work to help out the local community. The salon inspires a luxe environment with rich wood floors, bright red walls, and plush red drapery reminiscent of the light-blocking bedroom curtains of a photosensitive princess.
At Contour Laser and Skin Concepts, the staff members take their clients' trust very seriously. So seriously, in fact, that staff members offer no service that they have not tested and endorsed themselves. Approved treatments include skin tightening and hair removal with NaturaLight IPL lasers and gel nail polish from Bio Sculpture that can last through up to six weeks of wear or two weeks of tickling porcupines. Staff members use their in-house training to expertly perform each procedure as music and a convivial atmosphere help transform sessions into social experiences. Clients can enjoy complimentary beverages and snacks or sip champagne for special occasions.
