Shelley J. Smith is at the helm of Pearl Teeth Whitening Spa's team of dental hygienists, who specialize in gentle and even bleaching. Shelley found that whitening strips and trays conform poorly to the teeth and, like a drunken house painter, leave some spots whiter than others. The imprecise systems also tend to irritate the gums. Instead, Shelley and the team use a small brush to apply the whitening gel, avoiding gums while restoring every enamel crevice to a white that match's the dental spa's immaculate decor.
Since 1987, Fairview Electrolysis Clinic founder Evelyn Geatros has cleared away unwanted hair growth on areas ranging from small regions of the face to large body areas. During thermolysis sessions, she uses delicate filaments to send high-frequency currents into individual follicles, destroying the root and inhibiting future growth. She uses new disposable filaments for every treatment, ensuring a sterile environment.
When the owners of Integrative Healing Arts chose a logo for their natural health center, they opted for the Tibetan symbol of the endless knot. The knot traditionally represents the interconnectedness of the universe, making it uniquely suited to a clinic that seeks to understand the interconnected elements of each patient’s health.
By integrating different healing styles, from chiropractic and massage to traditional Chinese medicine and homeopathy, the three naturopathic physicians that helm the clinic strive to combat ailments without oversimplifying them. Many treatments are designed to ease medical issues without the side effects associated with traditional procedures, including prolotherapy treatments that help alleviate chronic pain with sugar water injections and thermography scans that check for disease without harmful radiation or ticklish cootie shots. At their spa, technicians can buff away dead skin and fine lines with microdermabrasion and firm features with non-surgical facelifts powered by the Rejuveness system. Visitors can also shop for their own holistic remedies in the natural dispensary, which stocks a range of Chinese herbs, homeopathic solutions, and natural hormones.
Inside this full-service beauty center, estheticians groom clients for head to toe using medical-grade serums and technologically advanced treatments. Have hair removed the traditional way through waxing, or opt for long-lasting smoothness with laser hair removal or electrolysis. Lasers also trail along skin to melt fat cells, resulting in smoother curves and shadows that easily slip through sidewalk cracks. For the face, the team caters to each skin type with PCA products and enhances natural beauty with permanent makeup.

Back in 1963, there weren't many options for men and women in western Canada who were suffering from hair loss. Knowing that people couldn't easily travel to big cities or ZZ Top’s lair to find solutions to their hair growth problems, Harry Beleshko decided to create SIR 101 Hair Restoration Specialists so he could bring internationally cultivated expertise to their doorsteps. Beleshko journeyed to Hollywood, Europe, Asia, and other locations across the globe, training with industry professionals and seeking out the latest products and techniques.
Today, Beleshko and his team of medical professionals, laser therapists, hair-replacement technicians, and hair stylists bring together those years of research and travel, offering more experience and a smaller, more boutique-like feel than many international hair-loss firms. They perform a variety of advanced medical and cosmetic treatments, including laser hair therapy, topical formulas, and hair replacement or transplantation.
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.
