The staff at Alaska Nails, a professional nail salon and school, paints digits in dapper shades while pampering limbs with a variety of spa services. Clients and comrades can perch on multiple pedicure chairs or in-house high wires as technicians brush coats of polish onto outstretched phalanges. Add-ons such as long-lasting Shellac, hand and foot massages, and paraffin dips soothe appendages as patrons repose near the salon's hanging tapestries. Adept artists can also scribe custom nail designs onto tips, ranging from glossy bow ties to accurate topographical maps of the moon. Alaska Nails is open seven days a week until 6 p.m. or 7 p.m.
The licensed, board-certified doctors at Alaska Vein Care vanquish spider veins and enlarged, bulging varicose veins with FDA-approved treatments. Injections of a sclerosing agent seal the interior lining of spider veins, diminishing their appearance by blocking blood flow. Treatments for varicose veins include EVLT treatments to restore normal circulation, micro-phlebectomy procedures to remove looped veins, and sclerotherapy, which closes vein walls.

Guests can also gain insight into the the spa's water conservation techniques while enjoying their haircut, waxing treatment, or swift makeup application.
The Body Cafe's aestheticians put PCA skincare products to work vivifying the epidermises of clients during facials. The signature facial cleans, hydrates, and nourishes nose, mouth, and eye holders, leaving the visage subtly illuminated and healthier. Three separate peel processes provide chemically driven pulchritude after dead skin politely excuses itself from the face, and a detox deep-pore treatment incorporates all-natural ingredients to thoroughly cleanse microscopic skin oil fields. The TCA ultra peel, alternatively, employs the trichloroacetic acid found in PCA skin products to renew countenances in a more work-appropriate manner than getting a facial tattoo that mocks a boss's inability to discuss current events in Latin.
At Tan Alaska, four different levels of tanning beds wait ready to bronze the skin of patient tanners. Specialized tanning lotions aid in this process, some with ingredients of caffeine, or hemp. Meanwhile, spray tans eschew the sun for quick, easy tanning, while hot tubs await, water bubbling, for relaxing jaunts away from the harsh colds of winter.
Board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon Dr. Stephen H. Sutley oversees the implementation of Lumenis lasers designed to safely remove hair with zero downtime and zero anesthetics. During treatment, a vacuum-assisted device draws the skin closer toward the focused laser beams, enhancing the follicles' absorption of the light waves and sucking up any old popcorn kernels lodged within them. The laser then causes strands of body fuzz to heat up, deadening the roots to prevent further germination and allow the hair to gently brush away. Due to varying degrees of growth, several treatments and strongly written eviction notices are necessary to thoroughly banish unwanted hair. Lumenis lasers work with multiple skin and hair types, although clients with lighter hair may not see results.
