Cosmetic care that stops at the surface is only fighting half the battle. This is the philosophy of the staff at Eternal Wellness MedSpa & Salon, and its various aestheticians and technicians aim to rejuvenate and revitalize clients' spirits with their beauty services. To do so, they incorporate traditional spa techniques, such as Swedish and deep-tissue massage, with medical-grade products and technology. A cosmetic laser system and Vibraderm exfoliating machine fit right in with the center's arsenal of aesthetic equipment, which also includes infrared light skin-tightening devices. Colon hydrotherapy machines and 21-day cleanses help clients shed weight and toxins. Even something as straightforward as a new hairstyle or freshly polished set of nails can revitalize spirits and give clients the confidence they need to finally assemble their home's particle accelerator.
Bodybuilders know well that a flexed muscle is more striking when it's wrapped in a glowing tan. That's why the pros at Maui Tanning give customers plenty of options for achieving that eye-catching bronze hue—from beds and standup booths to airbrush tanning. The latter option ditches UV rays for safe solutions that tint epidermises faster than traditional tanning. And unlike its light-generated counterpart, airbrush tanning can be tailored to hide flaws or accentuate the biceps that beachgoers depend on for directions.
Maui Tanning also cares for skin with Optimale serums and creams, which fend off premature aging with plant-based ingredients.
Rock Star Tanning's expert technicians use UV-free, streak-shunning solutions to coat their clients in a healthy and natural-looking glow. Relax as a specialist evenly applies a fine mist of color over your entire body, delivering beach-like bronze in 20 minutes or less. Choose from three custom levels of tan based on your current skin tone or the seven-day forecast for your fake-vacation locale. Your custom-contoured color will last 12–14 days with the proper care and maintenance.
All Star Cuts’ team of five waxing technicians draws on more than twenty years of combined experience to make depilatory missions as swift and painless as possible. In each treatment, wayward hairs are lulled into a false sense of security under plush blankets of skin-friendly wax elixirs, then uprooted and transplanted to greener pastures. The radiance of newly unveiled epidermises is maximized with a soothing application of Paul Mitchell tea-tree body moisturizer. While eyebrow shaping ($18) and upper-lip treatments ($10) claim top popularity honors, All Star Cuts’ technicians willingly defoliate a gamut of body components upon request, including underarms ($20), chins ($8), backs (price upon request), and more.
Sister duo Michelle and Marie draw on Swedish, deep tissue, and pressure point principles and techniques to tailor each treatment to your body's singular quirks and complaints. During the integrated massage, the mitten fillers of your licensed massage therapist will skate smooth circles and figure eights on the surface of your back, boosting circulation, oxygenating muscles, and promoting peacefulness. If your body is already nice and rubbery from hours of boiling in a spaghetti pot, you can de-stress just as completely with a mani/pedi as technicians clip, cut, and file untamed talons into clean and orderly perfection before coating them with your color of choice. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
Zen Salon + Spa's conscientious caregivers integrate the Zen philosophy of balance, simplicity, and harmony into their individually tailored hair, nail, skin, and body treatments. Massage services run the pressure gamut from a 30-minute back-and-head massage ($35) to a deep sport treatment ($85). The no-tension massage unties wound-up worrywarts with one hour of deep-tissue techniques that release deeply rooted tensions in targeted areas ($85). For frustrated raisins looking to lure flirtatious grapes, the Image Signature Facial infuses skin with rejuvenating vitamins and antioxidants meant to fight signs of aging ($80).

For the licensed technicians at Slim Body, the human body is a living sculpture, one that can be finessed and altered to fit any standards of beauty. Their treatment regimens help clients achieve their desired looks with the help of advanced medical aesthetic technologies. Cavi-Lipo treatments aim to tighten skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite by zapping fat cells under the skin using ultrasound energy, which causes the body to flush out liquid fat via the lymphatic system or using it as energy. Slim Body is also home to more traditional beauty and relaxation treatments, including soothing massages and hydrating facials.
The Elements Way "channels the healing and restorative power of massage as a vital component of overall health and well being." The therapists of Elements Massage follow through on this motto with massage modalities that can bost blood flow and inspire a sense of relaxation. Swedish massages gently relax, while more intense deep-tissue massages undo knots and kinks with targeted pressure. For athletes and recreational cart-wheelers, sports massages aim to alleviate aches and speed recovery times, and pre-natal massages help expectant mothers with aches and postural concerns.
At Rejuvenating Touch Massage Therapy, licensed massage therapist Chris Duran uses relaxing Swedish and therapeutic deep-tissue and sports massages to alleviate stress and pain. But those aren't the only benefits his massages can bring. They can also help improve blood circulation and stimulate the lymphatic system, assisting the body's natural processes for waste removal. Still, Chris' primary focus is helping his clients unwind and relax, and, if desired, he can integrate warm stones or aromatherapy oils to melt every last shred of anxiety and tension.
Sun Kissed Spray Tanning Salon relies on VersaSpa tanning booths to give skin a healthy bronze shade. The spray-tan solutions come in three varieties: ph-balancing solution to hydrate skin, bronzing solution for a golden glow with the option of a cosmetic tint, and anti-aging solution that moisturizes. A pre-tan is recommended before spray time service in order to exfoliate, gently stripping away dead skin cells while alpha hydroxy acids improve skin's texture and tone to make a perfect canvas for a spray tan.
As one of the premier teeth whitening lounges in the region, I Heart White Teeth tasks itself with keeping teeth gleaming white with its proprietary teeth-whitening system in a serene atmosphere. The peroxide gel works its magic over the course of two 20-minute sessions, each extracting a progressively deeper set of stains and remnants from layer cakes. Aside from its whitening properties, the gel boasts a mineral-rich formula that fortifies dental enamel.
The risks of liposuction are well documented—skin irregularities, infections, saying something embarrassing while under anesthesia, etc. That's why the staff at Quick Slim Ultra opts for a noninvasive approach to fat reduction. During QuickSlim treatments, they can liquefy unwanted fat cells by using LED light instead of surgical tools.
Tucked away from the clanking dumbbells
and whirl of treadmills at Gold’s Gym, Angel Hands Spa offers many moments of silence during relaxing appointments. Clients recline on cozy treatment tables as massages unwind tense muscles and facials remove dirt and excess oil from pores. Excess body hair can be tackled with a laser or warm wax for those tired of shaving or asking it politely to leave. A nail technician on staff files and buffs fingernails and toenails before painting them in vibrant polish hues. The spa's most impressive treatment, however, is the noninvasive HydraFacial, which uses a Vortex-Fusion process to eliminate imperfections in the skin such as wrinkles and sun damage.
