The stylists at Zoe's Beauty Salon are extremely versatile. Not only do they speak Spanish and English, but they can also cut, elongate, or change the texture of manes. They snip choppy layers and add pops of color to them or lengthen hair with natural-looking 100% human-hair extensions from Babe. They also transform frizzy strands into smooth ones with keratin treatments or employ perms to add curls to locks. In addition to hair services, Zoe's Beauty Salon menu of services includes numerous facials, permanent makeup, and eyelash extensions.
Few things are more discouraging than running toward your weight-loss program's finish line and noticing spot areas of fat still jiggling on your hips, thighs, or arms. At The Wrapping Room, all of the treatments are designed to remove those spot areas of fat in simple, noninvasive ways. Patients can don body wraps, lounge in an infrared sauna, or strap muscle-stimulating electrotherapy pads to their bodies. The treatments, which can be performed at The Wrapping Room or on-location via a mobile service, are augmented by traditional weight-loss techniques such as dieting, nutritional counseling, and setting the treadmill on infinity.
Under the leadership of Dr. Jim Craig, the staff of Summerbrook Dental helps create healthy grins while minimizing pain and anxiety. The staff encourages patients to take control of their health, presenting recommendations for dental work, as well as telling patients about their other options. In addition to cosmetic, preventative, periodontal, and restorative care, Dr. Craig performs sedation dentistry for patients who experience high anxiety resulting from hearing dental tools or seeing their sharp canines.
Agreeable Dental Care has been protecting the smiles of children and adults for more than 20 years. During routine checkups, the dental staff teach patients the proper way to brush, floss, and blow-dry teeth in order to prevent future problems. But if any signs of decay do show up, they're dealt with quickly as dentists perform everything from root canals to fillings to treatments for periodontal disease. And for healthy teeth that need a little aesthetic boost, the office also offers whitening treatments that remove stains from coffee and tea.
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 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 in order 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.
Voted Best Dentist by Aurora Sentinel readers, Dr. S. Kent Lauson straightens out uneven chompers with Invisalign, a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial dental exam, including 3-D i-CAT and panoramic x-rays, eight pretreatment photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. After recording the specific dimensions of the patient's jawbone, Aurora Orthodontics communicates with Align Technology to ensure trays contour to exact measurements and include a bottle of New Smile Smell mouthwash.
