Sherwood Park Laser Clinic's professionally certified technicians combat unsightly blemishes and wrinkles with an array of aesthetic services. Techs use lasers to remove or reduce the appearance of unwanted hair, spider veins, and signs of aging—such as wrinkles, cellulite, and expiration dates stamped on the forehead. To ensure that patients are comfortable, doctors use the Zimmer Cooling Machine during laser treatments. The staff also tends to rough skin and sun spots with diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatments designed with minimal downtime in mind. Other beauty-centric offerings include membership opportunities, complimentary consultations, and a modest selection of specialized skincare products available for purchase.
Registered nurses Joe and JoAnn Forte started Joe Laser & Spa out of their professional home office to provide highly advanced treatments in a comfortable setting. Their business, which was awarded Home-Based Business of the Year by the Fort Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce in 2010, can treat a range of bodily woes, from unwanted inches and signs of aging to pesky orbiting Death Stars. Extensive training with the Cynosure and Syneron lasers allows them to add noninvasive technologies to their roster of treatments, including hair, vein, and cellulite reduction. The duo also helps clients battle wrinkles with laser facials, and provides Botox and Juvéderm injections.
At Refresh Laser Spa, the "Laser Spa" part of the name tells only half the story. Hot-stone massages, facials, and spinal-decompression treatments also await clients who want to look and feel better. The team combines these tools with advanced laser hair-removal treatments and VelaShape laser liposuction treatments to round out a rolodex of health and beauty services.
Pure Elements pampers hirsute heads and figures with soothing care while dousing spa hogs in Aveda and Schwarzkopf products. A wise salon sleuth uncovers new and interesting skull sculptures during a ladies' (from $47) or men's (from $28) haircut. Don a bouncy new perm (from $95) or touch up whiskery roots (from $70). A full colour (from $80) splendidly allows coifs to reinvent themselves, like mad scientists who were once child stars. Settle into a chic seat and feel an eye and lip treatment ($45) massage away puffiness or minimize fine lines and dark circles, and the eyelash perm ($75) curls lovely flirters for up to four weeks. Try ear candling ($75), a unique approach to cleansing canals of impacted wax, devious debris, and hushed secrets whispered into lobes by aunts many family reunions ago.
Unlike conventional spas that painstakingly mix clay facials or coat the skin in hot wax, the laser technicians at Newity Laser whittle away skin concerns with lasers. By calibrating their Harmony lasers’ rapid light pulses, they’re able to shrink pores, lighten dark spots, and unfold wrinkles. Alternatively, they target unwanted hair on the face and body by accosting the follicles with light and heat energy without damaging the surrounding skin.
