By pairing UV and UV-free tanning treatments with resort-like facilities, Tan FX has become Canada's fastest growing indoor-tanning franchise over the past decade. The company's numerous locations—scattered throughout Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba—feature modern UV-tanning beds and booths capable of bronzing bodies in as little as 10 minutes and UV-free Mystic Tan systems that apply color in seconds. To ensure all tanning contraptions are used safely and properly, Tan FX keeps its Smart Tan–certified staff up to date on the latest industry knowledge with online training programs and in-person interviews with the sun.
Simple Solution Weight Loss cultivates beauty and holistic health in Saskatchewan. Massage therapists knead away aches with help from aromatherapy and hot stones, and stylists shear and sculpt strands to better frame faces or still-life photos of celebrities taped to faces. Stand-up, horizontal, and UV-free tanning beds outfit epidermises with a golden glow, and lasers and wax reveal youthful, hair-free limbs. Many treatments are customized with tonics from Dermalogica skincare, chosen to address customer-specific conditions according to the brand's signature skin-mapping system. Simple Solution Weight Loss stabilizes blood-sugar levels and aids weight loss with a physician-designed diet. Designed to promote fat burn while maintaining muscle mass, the program uses protein-heavy foods and nutrient-rich supplements to help patients drop pounds, increase energy, and avoid being confused for their evil twins.
The steady-handed staff at ON2U Body Piercing and Tattoos helps bodies to reach their full potential as artistic canvases. Backed by more than 15 years of experience, Veronica connects one inky pixel after another to create stunning tattoos, which blossom to fruition from a customer's vague idea or the rough outline from a police sketch artist. Jonathan employs his piercing expertise to ready epidermal spaces for new bling. The River Landing?area shop recently added a laser tattoo-removal service, where laser-technician Kevin removes unwanted ink more effectively than soaking in a bathtub of club soda.
Practitioners from RV Mobile Massage and Spa Therapies perform treatments that date back 4,000 years, but they deliver those treatments using a modern invention—the automobile. Patrons relax at home or continue pretending their head isn't stuck between bannisters as a talented massage therapist travels to their location to ease muscle tension and stress. Alternatively, patrons can travel to the company's studio for treatments. There, massage therapists wield oils and heat smooth stones, which hold warmth and allow it to seep slowly into taut muscles.
Terry Wasylow has spent more than 30 years in the beauty industry, but she discovered her passion for natural beauty products in 1999 when she suffered mercury poisoning. Convinced that her skin was absorbing too many toxins from her cosmetic and personal-care products, she created a No-No List to help others avoid similar experiences. This list delineates which ingredients could be harmful and which ingredients are just wearing a scary mask.
On top of sharing her knowledge, she takes it to the next step and steers her clients toward gentle, noninvasive laser treatments, such as the Poly-Skin and Digi-Light treatments, which simultaneously stimulates cells and refreshes and energizes the skin with a gentle electrical current. After a skincare session—which could also entail microdermabrasion or cold-laser treatments—Wasylow and her staff recommend natural products for at-home care. Their collection includes a variety of makeup staples as well as shampoos, conditioners, and hand sanitizer.
