Skin issues come to Therapy World to say their goodbyes. Under the care of Dr. Terry Grossman, the medspa's staff of medical aestheticians provides effective healing and anti-aging therapies to help skin look its best—and to help clients feel their best. Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, the team starts each new patient relationship with individualized care. That begins with a consultation during which skin issues and current skincare regimens are examined. Then, based on the patient's goals, corrective skin procedures are recommended, such as facial peels or microdermabrasion. Dermaplaning, threading, and reiki also comprise the long list of helpful treatments the center is known for, each contributing their own benefits to overall patient well being.
The staff at Metta Wellness Center believes that, in order to fully heal their patients, they must heal them as a whole: mind, body, and spirit. The center?s tranquil confines help accomplish this goal while staff perform treatments influenced by a blend of Eastern and Western therapies. During a traditional Thai massage, the therapist combines muscle compression, acupressure, and yoga-like body manipulations to energize patients without switching their vitamins with espresso beans. They also offer tropical hot-stone massages, signature body scrubs and wraps, herbal body wraps, and Thai reflexology, which targets pressure points in the feet to balance the body?s energy.
At Lash, all the focus is on the eyes. The staff here offers lash extensions, makeup, and tinting to beautify the face. Eyelash extensions are provided with careful attention, resulting in a sultry gaze that can turn heads and land airplanes. The staff also offers fills to keep the lashes thick and sustained, as well as lash and brow tinting, waxing, and makeup applications.
At Image Nail Salon, nail gurus pamper hands and feet with a fleet of manicures and pedicures. During the manicure and spa pedicure, patrons commit hands and feet to the care of a keratin master, who spends between 60 and 90 minutes clipping and buffing nails and swaddling digits in colored polish. A package of two can be used to spruce up original work at a later date, or to decorate your second set of limbs. Alternatively, opt for a 40-minute gel manicure, and a skilled technician will trim nails, curtail cuticles, and finish each fingertip with a long-lasting color swatch. Though not included in today’s Groupon, clients can treat paws to further TLC with a variety of add-on services, including a french manicure ($5 extra) or nail art ($5 extra) such as stars, flowers, or a miniature replica of the Sistine Chapel.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all of the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray-tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Stephanie Maner transitioned to the med-spa world after working with kids suffering from critical skin ailments at the Children?s Hospital in Denver. Armed with high-tech equipment, Stephanie designs custom skin treatments that range from facials and chemical peels to scar-removal sessions. Stephanie also performs microdermabrasion treatments to help treat fine lines and leave skin as smooth as the bald head of the figure on a bowling trophy, and the facility hosts acupuncture treatments and yoga classes.
