One of the best things about the world of skincare is that something new is always on the horizon. And while novelty and choice can be exciting, it’s also overwhelming for many. The same goes for skin treatments. Visit any clinic or spa and you’ll be met with a laundry list of options: radiofrequency microneedling, platelet-rich plasma injections, fractional lasers…the list goes on.  It’s enough to baffle even the most seasoned skincare aficionado.

Luckily, if you’ve done your homework, the benefits (i.e. visible results) can greatly outweigh the drawbacks (confusing!). From high-tech non-invasive treatments to personalized services, we’ve rounded up the top medi-spas and beauty clinics to visit in Toronto to get your skin looking brand new.

The Clinica

Walk into either of The Clinica’s Yonge St locations and you’ll be met with the dreamiest of interiors. The very Instagrammable palette of cream and millennial pink is sure to elicit “oohs” and “aahs”, but it’s the impressive roster of high-end facials that will keep you coming back.  The signature Miracle Cocktail treatment (from $499) is an absolute must-try, featuring a personalized formula with topical Botox added to a microneedling facial. Other notable offerings include the viral Golden PRP (also known as the “Vampire Facial”), the HydraGlow for a vacuum-like cleanse and the PowerPeel for dead skin cell removal and sped-up collagen production.

Sous La Face

Home to the celeb-approved RRR facial, Sous La Face (which translates to “Beneath The Face” in French) is almost like Canada’s answer to FaceGym, but way cooler. Founder Amanda Jeppesen’s signature Radical Radiance Regime (from $229) uses a mixture of facial reflexology, jawline-sculpting buccal massage and micro-electrical currents to stimulate the facial muscles and rejuvenate the skin. Not only will you leave looking absolutely snatched, but you’ll feel amazing thanks to the release of tension headaches from jaw clenching. The space also offers a range of other treatments, including skin-tightening for face and body, collagen remodelling, cryotherapy, and more.

If you’re looking to dive into the world of injectables, get treated by some of the best injectors and plastic surgeons in the city at FORM Face + Body. Helmed by Dr. Ron Somogyi and Dr. Waqqas Jalil, the space offers a range of surgical treatments including face lifts, brow lifts, breast augmentations and yes, even buccal fat removal. On the non-surgical side, treatments like neuromodulators ($11 a unit) and facial fillers (starting at $700) are performed with an expert hand to produce the most natural results.

My Beauty Doctor

Headed by Dr. Leah Smith, My Beauty Doctor is all about providing medical aesthetic treatments in an easygoing and non-judgmental space. Scroll through the clinic’s IG page and you’ll get an idea of the lighthearted energy you’ll find at the space. MBD offers a range of facials (including the fab red carpet-inspired Fire + Ice facial), botox treatments and facial fillers, but the real star of the show is the skin-tightening Morpheus8 treatment (starting at $1200), which combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to stimulate new collagen production and reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles on the face and body.

Compass Dermatology

Compass Dermatology, which was founded by board-certified dermatologists Dr. Sonya Cook and Dr. Julia Carroll in 2012, is one of Toronto’s most well-known clinics. The clinic offers a range of popular skin procedures, as well as lesser-known treatments such as hyperhidrosis treatment (botox to help curb underarm sweating) and a kegel chair (a non-surgical option to help with stress incontinence). For an instant skin pick-me-up, try out the JetPeel: a zero downtime resurfacing treatment that helps to eliminate waste from the skin and support its natural moisture barrier.

If needles aren’t quite your cup of tea, consider skipping the medical spa and paying a visit to master facialist Vee Mistry’s SKINBYVEE. The cozy studio space—which includes a heated treatment table and fluffy duvet—is blissfully relaxing. But the magic of this place isn’t built on vibes alone: Mistry’s tailor-made treatments and expert knowledge of the skin promise a pristine complexion for days. First-timers should try the 360 facial ($385) which combines a cocktail of active ingredients with facial tools and techniques like LED lights, microcurrent, gua sha and dermaplaning to target congestion, dehydration and hyperpigmentation.
