The anti-aging experts at Vine Vera believe they have found the secret to staying youthful: red wine. But unlike most stores devoted to wine, Vine Vera does not encourage customers to drink its wares. Instead, it repurposes wine grapes, packing them into beauty products in order to combat wrinkles and free radicals with an antioxidant called resveratrol.
Vine Vera encourages skin to soak up the antioxidant with the Chianti Collection, which brightens dull skin, the Zinfandel Collection, which works to protect skin from sun damage, and the Pinot Noir Collection, which aims to repair damaged skin. The Merlot Eye Collection finally gives users a way to reduce puffiness that doesn’t require placing frozen grapes over eyelids.
The CTCMA-affiliated practitioners of Cosmetic Acupuncture Clinic of Victoria combat signs of aging through a three-pronged approach to facial rejuvenation including cosmetic acupuncture, a low-level current treatment, and a deep cleansing. Benefits include hydrated, healthier-looking skin due to increased circulation delivering more oxygen and nutrients to the epidermis. The centre's treatments may also stimulate the production of collagen, which, in turn, can firm skin, tighten pores, and diminish the appearance of fine lines too stubborn for a garment steamer. Alongside its signature facial, the office also offers traditional needle and laser acupuncture, BloodScan nutritional profiling, weight management, and nutritional counselling services.
The aestheticians at Gorgeous Skin Spa let the healing molecules in the botanical-rich Prana SpaCeuticals product line do the grunt work while administering their specialty facials. Prana translates to “breath” in Sanskrit and reflects Prana SpaCeuticals’ philosophy that all-natural, living ingredients improve the appearance of skin far better than the harsh synthetics found in commercial products. Aestheticians complement their facial services with waxing treatments, which also draw on organic formulas, and semipermanent-makeup applications harness plant-based pigments to fill in brows, third eyes, and lips. The spa's menu also includes peels and eyelash extensions.
At Newera Wellness Centers, co-owners Dewar and Jen McCarthy offer a variety of beautifying services. As an accountant, Dewar handles the business side of the center while Jen, a certified weight-loss coach and certified Finer Face therapist, handles the treatments. Jen helps stabilize insulin production by providing clients with adequate protein and low-sugar diet plans. She also performs nonsurgical Finer Face facial-rejuvenation treatments that use low-level microcurrents to even out complexions—a method that’s generally preferred over the use of Wite-Out, pencil erasers, or a firm commitment to walking backward forever.
