One usually has to pay for tickets to see a one-woman show, but instead, clients at Maela?s Esthetics pay for specialty waxing and lash-extension services. The one-woman esthetics company is run by Maela Bru, who?s followed her passion for esthetics and ?all things girly? since she was a teen. Her waxing treatments use a hard wax that is gentler for facial and intimate areas, and a cream wax for leg, chest, and back services. Maela can also add a colourful touch to looks with a variety of subtle tints for eyebrows and eyelashes.
Performed by a beauty tech and skin savant of 23 years, the microdermabrasion treatments at Just for You Spa and Salon impart visages with a glowing veneer and a healthy, rejuvenated outlook. A thorough skin consultation kick-starts the 60-minute deluxe microdermabrasion and determines which dermal detriments are the most in need of healing. The skin technician then wields a diamond-tipped wand that gently abrades and removes the top layer of skinscape–a method seen as safer for delicate skin around the eyes nose and mouth than traditional microdermabrasion. Hyperpigmentation calms down, sun damage retreats to intracellular time-out, and minor scars and fine wrinkles quietly disappear, like the original Aunt Vivian on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air . Those who opt for the microdermabrasion package return to the candle-lit, earth-tone-tinted treatment room for two more 30-minute, noninvasive sessions. Each treatment involves no down time, so customers can continually exit the spa with skin that shimmers like the surface of a lake at twilight, but without skinny-dipping lovebirds constantly frolicking in it.
Since stress is a part of everyday life, the staff at Crave Massage strives to combat its damaging effects on the body and mind with spa and therapeutic massages. To further promote wellness, they swaddle bodies in blueberry soy wraps during body treatments to contour physiques and perform reflexology treatments?a method of relieving pain throughout the whole body by applying pressure to extremities to release endorphins. They also wax hides hair-free, and pamper men with facials, massages, and fist-bumps designed specifically for them.
The experts at Merle Norman Vernon draw out each client's unique style with an array of aesthetic services and their own line of cosmetics.

The beauty haven also offers massage, airbrush tanning, and packages for brides and graduates.
Aesthetician Christie Ponting chooses her arsenal of products carefully. At Sumptuous Beauty, each product used is crafted from natural and organic ingredients that don’t harm the environment.
