Village Health Spa believes in beauty by subtraction. Their massage therapists help clients stand up straighter by kneading away stress and strain and by promoting better circulation for the health of bodily tissues. Aestheticians use FDA-approved Intense Pulsed Light to remove unwanted hair anywhere below the brows by elevating the temperature of the follicle until it is safely destroyed or decides that it's had enough. Intense Pulsed Light technology unveils clear, smooth skin, and crystal-free microdermabrasion buffs away dead skin cells loitering on the surface of the face and gives packing orders to fine lines, brown spots, and other imperfections.
The aestheticians at Bare Body Sugaring harness the smoothing power of an all-natural sugar paste––made simply from lemon, sugar, and water––to eliminate unwanted hair at the root. Unlike waxing, which can strip away living skin, sugaring removes only the hairs and any dead skin cells, and is applied at room temperature, leaving no potential for burns. Hair is removed in the same direction that it grows to reduce breakage and irritation while ridding legs, underarms, and brow ridges of even the finest fuzz. The paste is also completely free of any dyes, chemicals, or artificial fragrances, and is even edible, making it the perfect solution for people who are tired of shaving the hair off their kiwi fruits before eating.
Owner Harinder Chahal, who opened Allure Laser Hair Treatment Center in 2005, unites advanced technology and indulgent spa services at her Winnipeg facility. Certified technicians permanently reduce unwanted hair with the Cutera CoolGlide Laser, which is effective on all skin types and tones and can remove fuzz from PowerPoint projection screens. In three to six treatments, pulses of light route out unwanted hair as a cooling hand piece soothes skin. To banish hair temporarily, meticulous technicians gently wax bodies and thread eyebrows. Aestheticians hydrate and balance skin with facials, ease aches and pains with massages, and enhance natural beauty with MAC cosmetics.
Body sugaring practitioner and skin specialist Julie Persaud dove headfirst into the beauty business 15 years ago, pioneering gentle, sugar-based hair-removal techniques in a world more accustomed to wax and razors. Today, Persaud keeps her ever-growing clientele of women and men sweetly smooth with sugaring services conducted in private, comfortable quarters within Split Ends Salon. Sugaring begins with a cleansing of the skin and ends with a cooling spritz that calms discomfort, constricting hair follicles and making them think twice about chewing on the furniture. The process also exfoliates skin, leaving spring-break-bound physiques feeling as sleek as they look.
Many spas focus on old-school facials and massages, but the techs at Rahat Professional Skin Care specialize in a range of aesthetic services that are enhanced with laser technology and medical-grade products. Their Evostar Stage 3 system emits precise pulses of filtered light that can remove hair, obscure pigmentation, and tighten loose skin. Rahat's repertoire or advanced skincare treatments also harness the power of Laboratoire Dr Renaud?s dermatologist-engineered products while adhering to strict hygiene standards. The skincare centre, which has been around since 1997, is located west of Polo Park Mall with enough space to park a car or land a saddled dragon.
Michelle, a certified aesthetician and registered reflexologist, works hard to help her clients achieve both outer beauty and inner peace. She paints upper lips, arms, horns, and bikini areas with warm wax before swiftly evicting unwanted fuzz, and customizes facials to combat problematic skin conditions. During reflexology sessions, Michelle applies pressure with her hands to areas of the feet. Each trigger point corresponds with a specific part of the body and works to alleviate such ailments as tension headaches, back pain, digestive disorders, and arthritis.
