Though Azure Skin Care may sound like your typical spa, it's actually a hybrid of both a spa and a medical aesthetics center. This means that the aestheticians deliver clinical-quality results, but they still pay attention to the little things that brighten up each client?s experience. The staff performs facials, waxing treatments, laser treatments, and massages, and the clinic?s board-certified doctors supervise procedures that are medical in nature, such as Botox injections. The whole space is distinguished by white tiles, neutral hues, and floral accents, making it as relaxing as a hammock tied between two classical violinists.
Per its name, Evolution Beauty Bar has changed substantially since it first opened as Casbah Evolution in 2008. Today, a talented team of aestheticians, makeup specialists, and hair stylists focus on providing the skin care, make-up applications, eyelash extensions, and hair care via its full-service menu. Beauty artists apply assorted organic products from brands such as Eminence to blank facial canvases, while waxing services help clients attain baby-smooth skin. The make-up bar boasts scores of naturally sourced, organic, or local bath and body brands, all sealed with a stamp of fun, girl-powered approval.
Clinic director and surgeon Dr. Segal oversees a well trained staff of hair harvesters that rounds up ready-to-pick follicles using gentle laser technology. The clinic’s high-tech hair-removal equipment channels safe radio frequencies in conjunction with light energy to stunt actively sprouting hairs at the follicles. Fingers can rid themselves of excess hair (a $50 value per session), and ladies can strut puddle side with confidence after thorough bikini line maintenance (a $175 value per session). To reduce redness and discomfort, Segal Vein and Laser simultaneously cools the surface of the skin. Unlike flailing toward a wall of flypaper, Segal Vein and Laser’s treatments typically do not require recovery time.
The technicians and clinicians at Essential Hair and Care specialize in treating hair loss, but their clinic addresses a wide variety of health and aesthetic needs. Some treatments—ranging from natural hair restoration to detoxification—are selected a la carte, while programs promote wellness by combining services such as massage, vitamin injections, and light therapy administered by low-level lasers instead of empathetic fireflies. But no matter what the desired outcome, the staff is guided by a three-pronged philosophy of character, commitment, and change to help open healthier chapters in clients’ lives.
At Heights Laser Centre, a highly qualified team of aestheticians aim to restore faces to their natural splendour. Treatments kick off with a complimentary consultation to ensure clients select the right treatment for their skin and Myers-Briggs personality type. During the glycolic peel, a skin-spert dispatches acidic gel across the face, erasing fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. The treatment can also evict dirt and oil from pores, combatting nefarious acne hordes. The 15-minute treatment safely renews faces, which clients can then use to charm librarians into renewing overdue library books.
When Cecil B. Spa & Laser opened in 1979, it was a makeup studio—origins the team continues to honor to this day. Despite how much the salon has grown, mineral makeup lessons with Jane Iredale cosmetics remain one of the team's touchstones. During a typical session, makeup artists guide clients step by step through creating flattering custom looks that include natural lips or smoky eyes that require no matches.
Today the spa branches out far beyond makeup with a host of wellness and beauty treatments. The spa utilizes the Italian wax Comfort Zone, which promotes slower and finer hair growth. Massages, for example, range from classic Swedish kneads to Western Thai massage, a mix of pressure point work and stretching. Laser beauty services, meanwhile, include laser hair removal and a cocktail of laser treatments designed to nonsurgically produce the look of a facelift.
