We use EMS (electro muscle stimulation) technology. EMS enables natural exercise safely and effortlessly to create slenderness, inch loss, firmness and strength.
The treatment also stimulates the body’s natural fat burning and toning process helping to give you a body that is not only lean and firm but healthy too!
With Slimwave we can target specific areas of the body (working several areas at one time) to get the results that you want. The stimulation from the electrical current also increases circulation of the skin. Thereby improving texture and tone as well as reducing the appearance of cellulite.

Reduce Stress and Fatigue: ¥ Infratherapy has antispasmodic, analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects. The infra-red treatment can reach the source of pain in inflammation or sore muscle. It is beneficial for muscle, articulator and rheumatic pain relief, fibromyalgia and tired legs.
For Weight-loss: The perspiration effect caused by the high body temperature increases the heart rate and speeds up the blood flow. A 40-min session causes a 600 to 900 calories loss, an equivalent of a 30 minutes run at a marathon runner speed. Infratherapy devices therefore facilitate weight control and contributes to your body slimming.
Cellulite Treatment: The thermal effect of infratherapy acts on the superficial fat, helping to stimulate the metabolism as well as reduce/eliminate the cellulite and fatty deposits.
Detoxification: During an infratherapy session the blood flow increases and the perspiration helps to eliminate toxic metals and pollutants, such as plumb, mercury, zinc and nickel. With an infra-red treatment, it is possible to expel up to 97% of heavy metals in addition to alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, sodium and cholesterol.
Boosts Immune System: The infrared thermal effect creates an artificial fever, which in turn activates the immune system. This process, combined with the toxin elimination and waste through perspiration, strengthens the body’s resistance to disease and promotes general health.
Slimwave Facial Toner treatments helps to reverse the signs of aging through a conditioning and toning facial lifting, it utilizes gentle electronic stimulation (EMS) to passively and effortlessly exercise facial muscles, whilst you relax. Good muscle tone and top condition is the key to a youthful look.
The Slimwave Facial Toner tones, firms and conditions sagging facial muscles, reduces lines and wrinkles and visibly improves your appearance. Used for over 40 years in beauty salons, faradic facial toning utilizes EMS (electric muscle stimulation) to activate the nerves, which control the facial muscles. Electric pulses repeatedly contract and relax the facial muscles, toning, lifting, firming and tightening them.
The electric pulses generated during EMS (electro muscular stimulation) mimic natural nerve signals that spearhead muscular contractions and relaxations. Electrically generated muscle exercise is passive and entirely effortless. In addition to firming, toning and tightening the muscles, EMS also improves facial blood circulation, bringing more oxygen and nutrients to cells, whilst encouraging removal of toxins and waste materials, leaving the skin refreshed and rejuvenated.

What is Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion uses an adjustable applicator head that removes dead surface skin cells and initiates cellular turnover at the dermis and epidermis levels in a safe controlled manner. This approach respects the integrity of the skin and promotes even healing. Maintaining even cellular growth on the surface aids in the youthfulness of the skin’s appearance.
Diamond-Tip Microdermabrasion vs Crystal Microdermabrasion and How They Work
Diamond-tip microdermabrasion is performed using a wand with a diamond-encrusted tip is passed over the skin. The diamond tip abrades the skin, and like the crystal version, the exfoliated particles are then vacuumed away through the same wand.
Diamond-tip microdermabrasion is a bit cleaner, simply because there are no stray gritty crystals left behind on the skin unlike Crystal Microdermabrasion. And some say it's a bit safer because there are no crystals to accidentally get into the eyes.
Some people prefer diamond microdermabrasion because of the lack of crystals. Breathing in aluminum oxide crystals can be irritating and can cause short-term breathing problems for very sensitive people.
The Benefits of Diamond-Tipped Microdermabrasion
We all want to look and feel our best. However, over time it is natural for our youthful appearance to fade. This treatment will help you regain that youthful glow. Additionally, diamond microdermabrasion helps reduce sun damage, blotchiness, and scars.
This simple and pain-free procedure comes with many great benefits. Here are just a few benefits of diamond microdermabrasion:
Treats Flaky Skin: This procedure has proven to be effective in treating dry and flaky skin. By first removing dry, dead skin cells, your skin will better be able to absorb the product and makes moisturizing more effective.
Wrinkle Reduction: Additionally, diamond microdermabrasion can greatly reduce wrinkles by eliminating the outer layers of dead skin. This is a process, and it normally takes anywhere from three to six treatments to effectively remove dead skin. Once this skin is gone, it stimulates your body to produce brand new skin cells. This not only helps repair fine lines, but it also helps prevent them from happening again.
Relieves Hyper Pigmentation: This treatment removes the dark, damaged skin caused by hyperpigmentation. This makes it extremely effective in evening out your skin tone.
Acne Scars: Diamond microdermabrasion is extremely effective in reducing the appearance of acne scars. Even if your acne was severe leaving you with dark scarred skin cells, this treatment has proven effective in reducing them.
Additionally, diamond microdermabrasion helps reduce:
Oily, congested skin
The skin is deeply exfoliated by the diamond tip, so it feels softer and smoother immediately after treatment. The exfoliation also helps reduce the formation of comedones and brightens the complexion.
The suction aspect of the treatment is as vital as the exfoliation itself (it isn’t just helpful in sucking away exfoliated skin.) Called negative pressure in pro-speak, the suction stimulates the dermis, causing a remodeling process to occur.
Microdermabrasion triggers a wound response in the skin. As the skin repairs itself, it becomes thicker, smoother, more elastic, and looks healthier as a result.

What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is an acid solution that is applied to the skin. It dissolves the outermost layer of skin cells, which then peels off over the following days to reveal the fresher, younger layer below. Peels are very effective in treating a large range of skin concerns such as aging, sun damage, acne, mild scarring, improving skin brightness, and evening skin tone.
Peels can be light, moderate or deep. Light peels require no down time from work and your normal activities. Moderate peels may require a day or two, and deep peels can require a week or more of down time to allow the skin to fully heal. We at Humber Bay Shores Beauty & Spa perform light to moderate peels only using the option of Glycolic/Salicylic/Lactic Acid and or TCA.
There are many benefits to receiving a chemical peel. Not only do chemical peels reveal a brighter, smoother and more refined complexion, they also improve the overall look and feel of the skin in just one treatment. Other benefits of receiving a chemical peel include:
Improving the skin’s color, clarity, tone and texture.
Stimulating new collagen and healthy skin cell growth, resulting in a radiant complexion.
Reducing discoloration caused by sun damage.
Helping to clear up breakouts.
Smoothing away the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Increasing hydration of the skin.
Addressing visible skin imperfections and superficial scars.
Enabling skincare products used at home to be more effective because a peel can remove several layers of skin build-up and congestion, allowing products to penetrate deeper into the skin.
For long-term results, we recommend a series of three or more chemical peels, spaced four to six weeks apart. The benefit of receiving a series of peels is that this treatment will be able to target the deeper layers of the epidermis, giving your skin an enhanced exfoliation. This type of deep exfoliation can stimulate cellular turnover, resulting in the production of healthy, glowing skin.
The type of chemical peel used will be determined by your clinical aesthetician during your initial consultation based on your skin type, its current condition, your lifestyle and your desired outcome.
