In one of the most miraculous transformations in the natural world, an ugly caterpillar wraps itself in a cocoon and emerges six to eight weeks later as either a beautiful butterfly or a much-uglier caterpillar. Revel in a more predictable and effective beautifying treatment with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a detoxifying mud body wrap at Oakridge Laser on King Edward Avenue West (a $98 value).
Oakridge Laser conquers an array of bothersome body conditions, employing laser and holistic spa services. A one-hour detoxifying mud wrap soaks skin with a fertile coating of European-made Moor Mud. With the help of peat, natural acids, and organic happy thoughts, Moor Mud opens up shy pores to an influx of nutrients. Each soil swaddling also coaxes a rise in body temperature, increasing circulation and sweating to actively evict lactic acid and metabolic mob bosses from fatty tissue. Patients may expect reduced acne and other surface ailments, toned-and-tightened epidermises, reduced cellulite and muscle pain, and lessened fatigue.
Oakridge Laser & Skin Care Clinic
Since Oakridge Laser & Skin Care Clinic's service menu leans so heavily on advanced medical procedures—think laser vein removal and even intense-pulsed-light skin rejuvenation—it's a good thing the centre is run by Dr. Shihab, a physician with an impressive background. He has concentrated on laser technology for more than 12 years, and he shares his knowledge with students at the Laser and CosMedic Academy, which he founded.
The clinic is also home to a spa side, where staffers relieve muscle tension with five kinds of massage, groom hands with peppermint-sugar scrubs, and cleanse faces with minerals and skincare products from Bhoomi Minerals.
