With over 50 years of combined experience and as members of the American Association of Orthodontists, the orthodontists at Miller & Teel have been helping patients achieve beautiful, healthy smiles using cutting-edge dental technology. During the initial exam, doctors inspect mouths for bite problems, screen for signs of oral caner, gum disease, and temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), and scrutinize hard tissue for lesions or secret candy stashes. When your mouth is ready for its close-up, a set of x-rays will reveal any fugitive abnormalities lurking under the mouth’s morally upright surfaces. After receiving its stamp of healthy approval, the doctor will then take impressions—or molds—of the teeth, to be used in the Invisalign treatment.
Led by semblance-savvy husband-and-wife team Dr. Daniel Kort and nurse practitioner JoAnne Engel Kort, Renew Clinic and Spa restores bodily beauty with medical expertise and cutting-edge laser technology. Light years beyond dated light bulb hair removal, laser hair removal gently coaxes rogue follicles from their derma dens and permanently eviscerates them after an average of six to ten treatments. A numbing cream thickens skin against the laser's subtle sarcasm, with most patients reporting only a mild tingling sensation, increasing with the darkness and thickness of the hair.
At Envy Spa Salon, an experienced team of stylists and massage therapists tends to the skin and hair of guests. Apart from the signature eyelash extensions for which they're known, the salon also treats guests to spa packages, which invite customers to take a breath with facial treatments and massages. Hair services add bursts of color in highlights or lowlights. Meanwhile, hot stones soothe backs and hot waxes remove unwanted body hair.
The team of trainers and aestheticians at Vitality Wellness Center helps guests restore beauty both inside and out with an array of services tailored to fitness, skincare, and mental well-being. Zumba, yoga, and belly-dance workouts take place in an airy studio with wooden floors, colorful murals, and a smoothie bar, allowing students to replenish lost electrolytes and continue campaigns of eradication against perfidious fruit. An on-site infrared sauna revs metabolisms, and body wraps purge toxins by enveloping limbs in mud, aloe vera, and seaweed. Vitality Wellness Center's aestheticians further pursue the center’s relaxing mission by sloughing dead skin cells from faces and dusty masquerade disguises during skin-pampering facials.
It may be called Body Now!, but as members transform their bodies, the studio's staff also wants them to shift their perspectives. Accordingly, they focus on all-around wellness, combining elements of world dance with cardio exercises during Now Fitness! group classes and emphasizing proper posture during Yoga Now! sessions. Wise Woman! classes help older women master functional movement patterns that enable them to win arm-wrestling matches against neighborhood kids. In the fitness center, exercisers can work up a sweat on Cybex and Life Fitness treadmills, elliptical trainers, and stationary bikes, or focus on strength with machines and free weights. Positive sayings unfurl in script across the deep purple walls, motivating members as they blast through 30-minute circuit training workouts.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
