Though Vivid Smiles’ bleaching formula shares similar components with at-home whitening kits, they have a secret weapon that makes their process much more powerful: an LED light. Its glow accelerates the bleaching process and amplifies the formula’s effectiveness, whittling the whitening process down to a svelte 30 minutes. During that time, Vivid Smiles can brighten smiles anywhere from two to eight shades, depending on the teeth’s original hue. The whitening formula is also infused with potassium nitrate to mute any tooth sensitivity during the procedure, keeping them from excessive tingling and weeping profusely when they bite into an onion.
With the desire to help clients through the best forms of cosmetic dermatology available, board-certified Drs. Sheps, Toole, and Wiseman opened the MediSpa Laser Skin Renewal Clinic in 2002. The experienced practitioners use laser technology and skincare products from Alyria and SwissTec to erase the effects of time during photofacials, microdermabrasion, and injectable-filler treatments. Sclerotherapy rescues legs caught in the webs of spider veins and pulsed light vanquishes unwanted hair on a number of areas of the body.
The optical experts at Osborne Spectacle Centre assess eye health and vision before outfitting patients with classic or avant-garde frames from designers such as Calvin Klein, Porsche Design, and ooh la-la de Paris.

During its nearly half a century in business, Osborne Spectacle Centre has continued to evolve, keeping abreast of modern trends such as polarized glasses and cordless monocles.
Moksha Yoga Winnipeg’s students stretch toward the sky, reflecting their teachers’ belief that yoga’s benefits are limitless. Held in balmy rooms warmed by radiant heating panels, hot-yoga classes help limber muscles and extract toxins. These routines begin with a relaxing supine pose, gradually progressing to standing stretches and balances designed to build strength, stability, and endurance. Floor-based bends bolster the spine and open the hips, which can enhance posture and flexibility. Cork flooring cushions joints and wards off microbes, and filtered faucets fill water bottles with water as cool and clean as a freshly scrubbed snowman. Experienced instructors also lead non-heated classes for students of all levels, including intense yet accessible barre classes, which use small isometric movements to improve core strength and help compliment other yoga classes.
Whether they’re sweating through one-on-one training sessions or supportive group classes, students at Brickhouse Gym build their physiques one workout at a time. The gym’s trainers wouldn’t have it any other way. Eschewing showy fad workouts for exercises that foster functional full-body development, they build regimens that revamp both bodies and minds. Exercises unfold during women-only, men-only, and coed boot camps, where participants push past goals with a circuit-style regimen made up of weightlifting, speedy martial-arts drills, and short, intense cardio. The gym's program schedule also helps members build healthy, rock-hard physiques with full-body training methods, such as kettlebells, boxing, team athletics training, and capturing a rival gym's mascot.
When they’re not working with trainers or one another, members can access Brickhouse's stack weights, punching bags, and circuit-training machinery at any time of day or night. This unlimited access helps exercisers adhere to any schedule and keeps clients free from the bustling crowds of traditional weight rooms.
