Located inside a restored 19th-century building, Pure Tranquility Day Spa surrounds its modern spa equipment and certified aestheticians with exposed-brick walls and expansive wood floors. Clients often stop in for relaxing spa services or packages, with treatments ranging from facials to massages to airbrush tanning. During the services, technicians use an exclusive line of beauty products made by manufacturers including Laboratoire Dr Renaud and Jane Iredale. Tranquility Day Spa also partners with a seasoned cosmetic doctor to offer med-spa services, allowing clients to explore a variety of cosmetic procedures. Staffers make sure to always welcome clients with a drink from the spa's specialty tea and juice bar and a riveting moment of eye contact.
Owner Lindsay Mackinnon opened Our Times Harbour View Spa four years ago to ply her trade as an aesthetician, but her favorite part of the job isn't any service she performs. It's hearing people's stories. She doesn't skimp on the service front either, gathering talent such as Lorraine Wilkins, an award-winning UK-born stylist, to keep her spa on the forefront of style. Her services span the whole body, boasting manicures and pedicures for extremities, massages for the back, and facials for faces or highly animated hands.
Inside private treatment rooms at Re-Treat Day Spa, aestheticians pamper skin with facials and wax away unwanted body hair. Makeup artists dust pigment onto complexions and gently apply eyelash extensions, which can be fluttered quickly for a couple seconds of levitation. In the nailcare room, a vivid spectrum of traditional- and gel-nail-polish bottles from brands such as OPl await deployment in decadent, two-hour spa mani-pedis that soften skin with warm paraffin.
The roving band of pamperers at HVSpa knows a secret about beauty: it's not just a makeover's end result that matters, but the experience of the treatments, as well. That's why they bundle their mani-pedis, massages, and waxing services into spa packages specially curated for specific groups. They specialize in brightening up kids' Princess parties and grownups' girls' nights with beautifying, festive house calls.
At Seven Medi Spa, the staff proves there's more than one way to remove a wrinkle. Patients can opt for Botox injections, facials, or microdermabrasion to obtain more youthful-looking skin. For other cosmetic needs, the medi spa schedules laser hair-removal treatments and mesotherapy injections that can diminish the appearance of hair and cellulite, respectively.
Lyn St. Pierre and Amanda Harding know that personalization makes a huge difference when it comes to stress-relief treatments, which is why they augment their massages with a variety of fragranced oils and exfoliating scrubs for their clients to purchase. Their massages can take the form of custom treatments that cater to specific aches as well as couples and mommy-and-me services.
