Donna Lapetina, owner and head aesthetician at Skin Solutions Medical Spa, has spent the last decade caring for aging skin—including her own. Donna and her team work their age-defying magic under the direction of board-certified dermatologist Dr. Sheila Boyle, whose career includes time as a flight surgeon, a lieutenant commander in the military, and a volunteer speaker on skin cancer. The staff’s specialty services include microdermabrasion, peels, and facials, as well as intensive acne treatments. Dr. Boyle performs all Botox and dermal-filler procedures herself to safely keep crow’s-feet, frown lines, and worry lines at bay. Clients receive their treatments in private, earth-toned rooms that mix the serenity of a spa with the professionalism of a medical office.
Rather than buying leftover potions from local sorcerers, Skin Solutions Medical Spa has developed its own line of products, including cleansers, eye creams, and an exfoliating scrub. The gentle solutions are formulated with ingredients such as green-tea extract, oil of calendula, and cranberry extract.
The inspiration for Angerman Hardwoods came in 1986, when a family friend asked Chuck Angerman if he'd help install hardwood flooring in a mountain home. Angerman agreed, and they set to work; when the project was done, he marveled at the beauty of the floor's wood grain, and at how the floor changed the home's entire aesthetic. He launched Angerman Hardwoods the following year with the help of his partner, Cynthia.
Today, the Angerman draws on decades of experience to bring out the beauty of hardwoods. Specialists sand floors using Bona dust containment sanding equipment that virtually eliminates airborne dust, and they refinish floors using a waterborne polyurethane that gleams for up to eight years. They also install all-new hardwood, bamboo, laminate, and cork flooring. They've strived to provide high-quality customer service in addition to high-quality products, earning an A+ from the Better Business Bureau.
Nervous pets are eased into exams at the attentive hands of the Indian Tree Animal Hospital staff. Beastly bodies are thoroughly scoured in a new-patient consultation, key for early detection of disease and conversion into a reptile. Regular heartworm tests help ensure the health of a pet's heart, keeping it strong enough for epic trips to the dog park and chasing marathon runners who smell like cars.

Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help to manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use participants' own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottles to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can. Between each weight station lies a recovery board where ladies cool down while walking, jogging, or running in place to keep up momentum. With each workout warrior at a different station, the only competition that exists is with one's own burgeoning muscles.
