Real Tan’s owners originally opened their doors more than 20 years ago with a salon in Scarborough. The single location couldn't keep up with tanning demands, leading to a relocation to Mississauga and a recently opened second location in Thornhill. Along the way, Real Tan has expanded its specialties to include ultra-bronzing Ergoline beds, Playboy spray tanning, and teeth whitening, which brightens teeth up to eight shades and lasts longer than gargling white-out.
After stashing their belongings in lockers, visitors bundle themselves in robes and set slippered feet into treatment rooms as children play in complimentary daycare. Massage therapy, waxing, and facials comprise a classic spa menu augmented with laser contouring and hair removal therapies. When they're not wrapping patrons in seaweed toted to the shore in the pouches of seahorses, technicians draw detoxifying foot baths, perform ear candling, and tint eye lashes.
Because skin cells don't have mouths to take vitamins or eat healthy foods, it’s the responsibility of aestheticians to find alternative ways to keep them healthy. At Elysium Wellness Med Clinic, the skin techs seem to have cracked the code, delivering therapeutic rejuvenation treatments for the face and the body. Their corrective therapies are highly scientific yet nonsurgical, addressing common conditions including fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, hyperpigmentation, and acne. In addition to laser hair removal, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels, the team offers lipo-laser treatments, which encourage fat cells to release their stored contents while resetting the part of the brain that’s attracted to frumpy bathing suits.
Synergy Tanning Studio imbues bodies with a beach-ready, sun-kissed look with a dynamic repertoire of tanning services. High-quality bulbs line the inside of the salon?s tanning beds, where guests can adjust the intensity to suit their complexions. For UV-free tanning, the salon?s airbrush technicians baste bodies with natural, sugar-based Synergy tanning solutions that impart a lasting, streak-free tan in sessions that last no more than 20 minutes. Synergy Tanning Studio also caters to cosmetic needs with waxing treatments, facials, and mani-pedis.
Light works hard at Omorfia Laser Spa. Springing forth from lasers, it spotlights follicles to dissolve unwanted hair and thwart new growth. During photorejuvenation facials, it immerses skin in pore-shrinking, pigmentation-erasing power. In the form of Endermologie and Accent beams, it contours bodies for a slimmer shape. Laser light is the specialty here, but aestheticians also conduct more traditional beautification treatments, such as applying mink eyelash extensions.
The stylists and aestheticians at Orchyd Salon and Spa help their clients' beauty bloom with an array of hair, skin, and body treatments. In addition to traditional haircuts, they colour tresses with partial and full highlights and add body to limp locks with perms. Spa services include facials, massages, and waxing, along with laser hair removal and laser skin tightening for sagging complexions, tummies, and leather pants.
