The Zoom! whitening system is designed for safe, immediate shade-shifting results an average of 6 to 10 shades. This quick, nearly pain-free process lasts about two hours and involves the application of a scientifically formulated gel that activates under a specially designed Zoom! light. Guests can kick back and relax as the activated gel makes its way into teeth, targeting discolorations and transforming smiles from sparkling to most sparklingist. After a quick five-minute fluoride treatment, patients are fully armed with instant brightness that can last for years to come. Much like building a cubicle, the entire Zoom! process takes place in-office, which means all visitors are exempt from additional take-home whitening regiments; though, to remain at the pinnacle of pearliness, five out of five dentists recommend maintaining proper care.
Dr. Draper bolsters clinical savvy and an artistic eye with 20 years of experience as she and her staff augment appearances in a serene office. During the 30-minute glycolic peel, one of Dr. Draper's experienced skinsmiths exfoliates the outermost layer of the epidermis with an alpha-hydroxy acid, found in fruit and the more attractive vegetables, targeting sluggish cells to ramp up collagen production while controlling acne and fading fine lines and age spots. Minimally invasive SmartXide DOT CO2 therapy employs fractional lasers to resurface skinscapes with thousands of microscopic perforations. Ideal for sun-damaged, wrinkle-plagued, and acne-scarred visages, the laser hones in on specific treatment areas over the course of 90 minutes, promoting quicker healing time by reducing laser exposure. Dr. Draper offers medication to DOT patients to ease the discomfort of traveling back in time outside of the protective shell of a DeLorean DMC-12. Postprocedure, the epidermis may appear red, but the sunburn-like discoloration should fade within a few days.
Bleach Right facilitates teeth-whitening services that clients administer themselves. Whitening pens enable mobile bleaching, and a 20-minute session under the LED blue light illuminates dentines in less time than it takes to eat a cherry cobbler covered in glow-stick syrup. The self-proclaimed "teeth whitening spa" conducts its hygienic business within the Biltmore Square mall.
Under the supervision of licensed physician assistant Lisa Edwards and local surgeon Chris Edwards, the medical staff at Belle Mia helps patients reach their cosmetic and fitness goals with medical-grade aesthetic services and weight-loss solutions.

Facials, body scrubs, and wraps cosset skin in nutrition, and a team of nutritionists, exercise specialists, and physicians help clients lose weight.
At Lirica Salon and Spa, you can sit in a styling chair, foils clamped to your hair, wearing protective red glasses while an LED lamp shines on your teeth, and raise your hand so your manicurist can file more easily. At least, that's what one customer recently experienced, having all those services done at once before tossing off those goggles and emerging with a new look. Of course, that's not the typical mode of operation at Lirica, where clients are made to feel welcomed and not rushed. But the studio's multifaceted roster of treatments is part of what makes it special.

Mind, body, and soul merit equal attention at Spa de la Vie, where therapists and aestheticians pair a holistic approach with a meticulous eye for detail. In line with their focus on results, the spa’s certified consultants begin each facial, massage, body wrap, and mani-pedi with an in-depth analysis that helps them discern the most suitable treatment for each visitor.
While devising a treatment plan to complement skin type and beauty goals, the spa’s staff sets the stage for relaxation with complimentary slippers, robes, and herbal neck wraps. Aestheticians take care not to disturb burgeoning states of serenity as they gently slather skin with all-natural Pevonia products during facials, skin masks, and body wraps that exfoliate skin and highlight natural contours. Therapists employ a similarly tender touch as they treat backs and shoulders to massage techniques culled from eight modalities. Their menu of services includes prenatal massages for expectant mothers and the option to add a 20-minute reflexology session for feet prone to protesting their soreness by stomping on the surfaces of icy lakes.
