The technicians at National Laser Therapy Clinics of Canada use modern technology to wipe out unhealthy cravings, unwanted body hair, and unloved tattoos. By applying low-level lasers to acupressure points on the ears, hands, or feet, they help stimulate the release of addiction-crushing endorphins. These treatments have helped clients give up tobacco, alcohol, and bad eating habits without the risks of cigarettes coated in cayenne pepper or pharmaceuticals. Hair-removal and tattoo-removal services harness laser power to stop hair in its active-growth phase or break down unwanted ink.

When beautifying the heads and bodies of his clientele, Yetmir Keqa of Salon Yetmir draws from eastern European roots, an apprenticeship at James Brett Coiffure, and a natural stockpile of dry wit and sincerity that helps to ease minds. During hair services for men, women, and youth, Mr. Keqa caters to his subjects' personalities and penchants for auditioning for shampoo commercials, using products by Davines and colour infused with milk protein. Facials and massages soothe away stress and brighten countenances, and mani-pedis leave extremities ready for first-impression handshakes. While clients admire glossy black treatment chairs and full-length, thick-bordered mirrors, they sip a complimentary macchiato that lightens the mood and keeps hair awake long enough to say goodbye to its split ends.
