Equal parts med-spa and salon, Janet + Janes Medspa + Hair Studio is buoyed by the talents of a staff that performs photo-facials, manicures, and nearly everything in between. Though they work in a monochromatic space dominated by blacks and greys, the salon’s hairstylists specialize in adding vibrant color to enhance their cuts and up-dos. Nearby but tucked away in private rooms, certified specialists renew physiques with Botox, laser hair-removal treatments, and full reboots of the body’s robotic systems.
At Enlighten Laser and Skin Care Clinic, Aimee Avery beautifies skin and slims bodies with an array of FDA-approved techniques including laser hair removal, photofacials, and fat-reduction treatments. Visits commence with a complimentary consultation. Amid the clinic's calming, grey surfaces, aestheticians discuss treatment options and match clients up with restorative cosmetics. Custom shades of Jane Iredale mineral makeup are designed to reduce redness and improve skin health using all-natural minerals scraped from the rosy cheeks of the Sphinx.:m]]
At Forever Young, aestheticians use a variety of traditional and high-tech techniques to keep their patient’s looking youthful. Hair removal, for example, can be done by hand – using the time-honored tradition of threading – or with a modern laser system that boasts a chilled tip to keep treatments comfortable. Other treatments include moisturizing facials, laser skin resurfacing, and full range of hair styling services.
The stylists at MVP Men's Salon specialize in men's hair care services ranging from cuts and 5-minute grey camouflage treatments to permanent hair colour. Using products from American Crew the staff members style hair and massage scalps while clients watch the flat screen LCD TVs, play Xbox, or browse the complimentary WiFi.
Hair Free Laser Institute technicians wield IPL lasers to remove hair and signs of facial hyperpigmentation, as well as blemishes caused by sun damage, acne, or sleeping on pine cones. Treatments are customized according to the Fitzpatrick skin-type system, which clients can check out online before scheduling an appointment. Though these therapies are described as relatively pain-free, technicians may give clients ice packs after appointments to counteract any natural side effects they may experiences such as tingling and redness.
Chosen as the Gold winner for best spa and aesthetics studio in the Calgary Herald Readers' Choice Awards, Oasis Wellness Centre & Spa stretches across 15,000 square feet equipped with more than 30 treatment rooms staffed by experts in skincare, massage, and aesthetics. With a belief that spa treatments are not just a luxury but a necessity to overall well-being, the team welcomes guests to their ancient Egyptian-themed resort to slip into a snuggly robe and slippers while aestheticians soothe and treat skin conditions with their own skincare line, Teye Treatment. Amid a pyramid motif and pillars etched with hieroglyphics, mani-pedi pros perform hydrating paraffin pedicures and manicures, and the steam room envelopes patrons in a rejuvenating eucalyptus inhalation steam and the sauna works to extract body toxins, purifying pores and melting muscles the way a flock of baby dragons melts the heart. Helming the friendly team of staff members, president of the Oasis Wellness Centre & Spa, Peter Smed, told the Calgary Herald, "People love to work here," noting that the spa's size allows for convenient appointment-making, happy customers, and happy staffers.
