Kate Lee and Amy Yang founded IN Beauty MedSpa with the ambition to meld Eastern philosophy with Western technology. The clinic's specialists intertwine inner and outer beauty during spa services that range from facials and massages to waxing and manicures that polish the spirit's fingernails. On-site dieticians and physicians tailor individualized plans for healthy eating, exercising, and ascertaining the number of jellybeans it takes to get a stomachache.
Lee and Yang jet-set to anti-aging conferences around the world. They continually incorporate new cosmetic technologies such as the Alpha LED light spa, which uses dry heat, oxygen therapy, and near-infrared light to improve blood flow and stimulate metabolic processes. Other medically supervised treatments include focused radiofrequency sessions, which tighten and firm the body.
Natural light floods into A & B Creative Looks, illuminating canary-yellow tiles and tan walls emblazoned with a floral pink stripe. Since opening the studio in 2010, its aesthetics professionals have treated men and women with environmentally conscious salon and spa services. Using ammonia-free hair colour and herbal facial products, they beautify the body with minimal effect on the environment other than the jealousy evoked in forest nymphs with tangled hair. In addition to performing hair and facial services, they reduce the appearance of cellulite deposits, sunspots, and dark circles with noninvasive treatments administered in secluded treatment rooms.
The multidisciplinary team at Medica Natural Therapy Clinic focuses on holistic treatments and preventative care that draw from the tenets of alternative and Chinese medicine. They may combine several noninvasive therapies such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, and massage into a single treatment program designed to tackle an illness or stubborn case of the Mondays from various angles. To tackle aesthetic concerns, certified laser technicians operate Health Canada–approved equipment for skincare treatments such as laser hair, acne, and fine line removal and body contouring.
By frequently consulting with the team at Aveda, the staff at Scruples Salon & Spa stays on top of current trends and developments in the beauty world. They perform services both modern and time-tested, including cosmetic teeth whitening, body-hair removal, and head-hair colouring. Additionally, aestheticians and stylists goes out of their way to calm brides-to-be as they prepare for their big day. The wedding gurus apply makeup, sculpt hair worthy of being immortalized in pictures, and divulge tips on how to discern jellyfish from delicious globs of grape jelly lying on honeymoon beaches. Aveda products remain a constant in the wide array of services the staff performs, as the plant-based hair and skin serums have a proven track record of adding shine to hair and making faces look good enough to lick.
Purezza Med Spa’s acupressure massages focus exclusively on the ears, hands, and feet, based on a theory of mapping—the idea that every area of the body can be treated with pressure to specific points on these extremities. A similar concept guides the spa as a whole. Its eclectic array of beauty treatments, relaxation services, and wellness offerings are meant to map into a larger feeling of well-being.
The spa’s beautifying services range from wrinkle-smoothing Botox injections to laser treatments, which can minimize spider veins or rejuvenate skin. Meanwhile, relaxation services include massage and reiki, a Japanese healing treatment geared toward fostering “life-force energy.” Nutrition counselling and custom weight-loss plans are also available to streamline physiques.
At Eternal Beauty n Beyond, certified medical aesthetician Kerri Le works with one goal in mind: to create personalized skin solutions for every client. After evaluating a client’s needs and skin concerns, she designs a customized skincare plan by employing the techniques she learned at Canadian Beauty College and using state-of-the-art, FDA-approved medical aesthetic treatments. These treatments may include chemical peels, microdermabrasions, or Dermalogica facials. The latter use zone-by-zone face mapping to deliver exactly what skin needs right at that moment, such as a tattoo of a lion selling Dermalogica products.
