Great Tanz imbues sun-deprived bodies with a beach-ready bronze with a fleet of well-maintained tanning beds. The salon offers five different levels of tanning intensity, catering to clients looking to build a base tan as well as more experienced tanners hoping to maintain a dark bronze complexion. Guests can also enhance their tans with Great Tanz's selection of tanning lotions.
Aesthetician Jacquie Keller operates Essential Skin Care out of The Style Room, a 2,000-square-foot salon and spa nestled in the historic downtown of Lee’s Summit. Keller believes firmly in the power of nonsurgical treatments—in the clinic and at home—to reverse the furrowed march of aging. Through a studied application of facials, waxing services, relaxation massages, and reflexology, she puts clients at ease while jamming Father Time's fingers in the doors of perception.
The enhanced microdermabrasion facial combines the deep exfoliation of the microdermabrasion with deep-cleansing steam, a light chemical peel, and a custom finishing mask. A thorough skin-cleansing kicks off the treatment, followed by a dreamy steam-towel and facial massage with a mask, whisking the mind away to a more relaxed place. Keri Eichhorn––the highly trained and certified aesthetician in charge of pampering facial clients with copious amounts of beauty––will employ the Pristine Precision Diamond Peel to effectively exfoliate each face's outer hull, stripping away dull skin, rough textures, and uneven pigmentation caused by a run-in with a squadron of soy sauce packets. A chemical peel is applied for one to five minutes to boost the anti-aging benefits of the microdermabrasion, and then a cool wrap will chase away demons of dry skin with hydrating oxygenation, vitamins, minerals, and amino-acid headlocks. Depending on your face's unique skincare needs, you'll receive either a hydrating mask to seal in silky-smoothness or a firming mask to tighten skin into youthfulness. Finally, the finishing products protect the face from sun, wind, earth, and lip-fires.
Slimming Solutions is more than a name—it's a promise. The medspa, which is staffed by a doctor, a nurse, a nurse practitioner, and a medical aesthetician, treats clients to a wealth of services that help them to slim figures and enhance appearances. The non-invasive lipo laser blasts fat on arms, hips, and bellies with low-level wavelengths that break down fat cells, while the radio frequency body contouring uses heat to tighten and smooth skin while serenading it with the latest polka hit. Other services augment physiques, such as IPL hair removal, vein treatments, and laser skin resurfacing. The medspa also features a variety of spa services such as massages, microdermabrasion, facials, and teeth whitening.
Le Soleil Tanning's owner, Rachel Tanis, has been in fierce competition with the sun for four years. Since opening in 2008, she and her staff have gained the upper hand with Smart Tan certification, which gives them the tools to design safe tanning regimens for each skin type. Those hoping to avoid UV exposure step inside an automated VersaSpa spray booth, where special serums moisturize the skin with aloe vera and balance its pH before coating it in bronzer. Fresh, neatly folded hand towels sit atop Soltron and Ergoline beds radiating UV rays at three levels of intensity. The most powerful of these is a high-pressure Ergoline bed with an open, airy design that surrounds those within in UVA rays and tunes piped from its MP3-player dock. Part and parcel with creating the hallmark of health and youth, the studio offers red-light therapy that promotes collagen production for firm, smooth skin, and fights acne harder than a dermatologist with a soap-filled fire hose. The white lobby's glass shelves display nourishing lotions from Designer Skin and Swedish Beauty that aid the safe development of a rich, even color.
Tangerine Skin’s aestheticians aim to prevent skin irritations before they become bothersome. They slather Image Skincare products over faces, keeping acne at bay, unclogging pores, and mopping up excess oil. In all, the staff renders 10 skin treatments and 8 facials. The staff also expertly twists a piece of cotton thread over brows, removing unwanted hairs for that coveted look of a McDonald’s arch. When a single thread won’t do, they evict fuzzy patches on upper lips and legs with warm wax.
