The tanning professionals at Perfect Tan help combat waning complexions with high-tech beds and safe, effective sunless-tanning techniques. For those seeking a sun-free shade, UV-free Mystic Spray tanning booths bronze bodies for up to five days with automated misting nozzles that apply an even coat of FDA-approved DHA and aloe vera. During the airbrush tan, a certified tan tech covers the entire body with micromists that can render skin three shades darker, obscuring dermal imperfections, such as blemishes, stretch marks, and full-torso tattoos of Christmas sweaters.
With a passion for perfumery that began with the possession of a Barbie Perfume Maker at the age of 6, the owner of Ophelia’s Apothecary translated her life-long dreams into reality with the creation of her line of all-natural scents and made-from-scratch toiletries crafted without the use of sulfates and parabens. Vintage mirrors, a well-loved gramophone, and jars filled with herb sprigs line the walls of the creamy-pink shop, creating an elegant atmosphere wherein clients may breathe in the aromatic scents of lotions and perfumes, try on mineral makeup to find hues that their suit skin tone, or refill supplies before prospector audit week. Carefully wired mason jars hang from an antique ladder, with the clear glass showcasing the apothecary’s variety of all-natural shea-butter lip balms and portable containers of whipped body butter. Twinkling chandeliers shed light over the array of jar-bound toiletries, each separated by type and scent for stress-free perusal without the complicated Dewey decimal system.
It’s all in the name at Create A New Body Spa, where a friendly staff helps both men and women acquire the physique of their dreams with the two-part Madame Et Monsieur program. Technicians hook clients up to the Electro-Slim machine for one hour, initiating a flow of electricity that contracts muscles, breaks down body fat, and teaches hands to finally clap on beat. Coupled with a healthful-eating plan, the machine can help everyone from athletes to the elderly shed weight, reduce blood pressure, and alleviate muscle pain. The salon accelerates weight loss with the infrared Fit Bodywrap that lasts up to seven days.
At Aspire Medical and Day Spa, medical aesthetics and skincare work in tandem to erase signs of aging. The staff, overseen by Dr. Nicole Reid, smoothes wrinkles with Botox, Juvederm, Radiesse, and Belotero, and streamlines morning routines with permanent makeup. The aestheticians also rejuvenate your look with facials that range from a quick lunchtime pick-me-up to the Ultimate Facial, which combines cleansing, exfoliation, and microdermabrasion with an upper-body massage. Their arsenal of skincare products and custom facials helps clients stay beautiful at home with high-quality brands such as Dermalogica.
At Beau Soleil, patrons choose from four levels of tanning beds in which they can soak in UV rays. These beds coax skin to blossom with sun-kissed color so clients don't have to spend time outside or take naps on the windowsill. Norvell organic solutions power airbrush-tanning sessions, which mist skin with darker shades of bronze.
