Founded by a 25-year beauty veteran, Beauty Matters unites clients with a wealth of skincare services. Three methods of hair removal—wax, lasers, and electrolysis—clear away unwanted strands to keep surfaces smooth. During facials, aestheticians pull from Éminence Organic’s line of products to exfoliate and moisturize complexions. An on-site permanent-makeup artist fills in sparse brows, negating the need to apply makeup each morning or after every eyebrow wiggle.

For E-style founder Eva Qin, it wasn't enough to open just any spa, but a spa as renowned for its treatments as it is for being a dedicated member of the world community. Clients come to the spa for waxing, mani-pedis, facials, and eyelash extensions, but leave feeling refreshed thanks to the in-depth service of the E-style crew of beauticians. Eva also makes it her job to give back, by partnering with the Canadian International Education Assistance Foundation and donating proceeds from her spa to train workers assisting in post-disaster communities.

In addition to using light treatments, Urs's team of aestheticians relies on Zatoza skincare products, hypoallergenic wax imported from Italy, and Thalasso anti-cellulite treatments to fine tune looks. The aesthetics side of the centre also performs Angel's Touch massages, which use soft fan brushes made from hairs plucked from angel wings to relax clients with sensitive skin. They are an ammonia-free and nanosilver-free salon.
