Sunseekers who visit Body Glo Tan will discover two ways to give their skin that fresh-from-the-beach look. Three different styles of UV beds and booths not only trick the skin into thinking it's succumbed to the ministrations of the sun, but they also keep the body comfortable with ventilation and cooling systems. Alternatively, the misters in the Australian Gold spray tanning system are guided by lasers for extra precision, coating skin with a bronze-coloured sheen in under three minutes. This drip-free solution creates tans that last up to 10 days, though it may feel like 30 days if your parents are in town visiting.
Once guests arrive, they step across sleek, dark-wood floors before checking in at a granite-topped desk. Staff members keep up-to-date by attending seminars and other forms of continuing education so they can match their clients up with the best tanning options available.
At Belle Oasis Beauty Centre, skilled technicians perform services ranging from relaxing to results oriented. They nourish facial skin with anti-aging products by brands such as Ingrid Millet, Dibi, and Repêchage, as well as via decadent caviar treatments or oxygenating white-tea-based formulas. The team soothes muscles with an aromatherapy massage and uses the Slim Concept microcurrent device to target cellulite and attempt to bring stuffed animals to life. Staffers also employ intense-pulsed-light technology to stimulate collagen production and combat acne.
A savvy staff of nurses and aestheticians wields high-tech equipment to perform image-enhancing services. Fraxel and Zeltiq CoolSculpting lasers help clients to look young enough to order from the kids' menu by smoothing fine lines and contouring figures. Injectable beauty solutions and ultrasonic facials further fight signs of Father Time, and intense pulsed light removes age spots.
A sleek bastion of beautification services, Lacquer Beauty Bar lavishes a multifaceted pampering on human hides, leaving skin refreshed and luminous. The deep-cleaning 30-minute facial revitalizes cheekbones and foreheads, fortifying epidermal cases with vitamin C to protect it from invading impurities and hordes of micro-Vikings. After enriching the skin, the 20-minute massage soothes stress-induced wrinkles and age-lines, while Lacquer's all-natural La Vigne Organic Skincare products—like strong winds or the touch of an obsessive-compulsive giant—burnish craggy visages over time. Stresses melt away against a mod backdrop of sleek white furnishings complemented by bright, colourful accent pieces.
Clear skin is an important component when it comes to looking and feeling your best, but busy schedules often get in the way of dedicated skincare regimens. Into this whirl of calendar pages step the technicians at Wendy's Beauty, carving out a serene oasis in the middle of hectic lives. When clients first arrive at their spa, tech quiz them on their skin's needs and wants. This initial consultation helps them concoct custom treatment plans that might include everything from a pore-cleansing facial to a buffing microdermabrasion session. Techs don't limit their expertise to facial treatments, though; their body scrubs, waxing treatments, and aromatherapy massages restore lost vim and flagging vigor in other parts of the body. No matter the treatments they choose, clients rest easy when it comes to products: professional-grade skincare serums from companies including Mary Galland and Swiss Helenere power all of the spa's treatments.
The technicians at Rejuven8 Skin Care specialize in the use of light- and heat-energy technology. The machine uses a combination of broad-spectrum light and low-level heat to remove hair and smooth skin by causing microthermal trauma, which prompts the body's natural production of collagen. Technicians place the smooth hand-piece directly on clients' skin, where it emits controlled pulses of light to get rid of unwanted cells—like a picky prison inmate asking for something with a king-size bed instead. The pulses can help destroy hair follicles, create an anti-inflammatory response to heal acne, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, or erase signs of hyperpigmentation. During a treatment, clients may feel warmness or a slight sting, which lets them know it's working.
