At Hollywood Tans, tanning experts provide dozens of routes to bronzed skin. Sleek, spacious vertical tanning booths deepen tans in eight minutes, and Mystic Tan booths spritz bodies with a custom bronzing serum that clings to skin for up to a week. Hollywood Tans’ line of shower gels, lotions, and tan amplifiers helps to preserve tans far more easily than never showering again. Staff members happily advise first-time tanners on the best skincare regimen or tanning tactics, and makeup artists accent golden skin with mineral makeup from the makeup bar.
Though Planet Beach Contempo Spa employs two spa consultants, neither lifts a finger to perform any treatments. That’s because all of the spa’s services—massage, teeth whitening, tanning, skincare, and even weight management—are taken care of by a fleet of automated booths and capsules. Clients slip into the calorie-burning SlimCapsule or the bronzing Mystic spray-tanning booth in complete privacy, and many of the machines feature voice instructions to guide them through each treatment.
Gold-framed mirrors, Buddha statues, a spiral staircase, and purple accent walls lend an eclectic yet relaxed vibe to Skin Care Studio by kat, where aesthetician Kat Cabrera pampers her clients with signature services and products from A Natural Difference and shea butter/coconut creams and sugar scrubs made on-site with all-natural ingredients. In addition to classic spa treatments, such as facials, eyelash extensions, and waxing, she administers four types of chemical peels and dermaplaning—a treatment that uses a blade to oust unwanted hair and dead skin cells at the same time.
Having treated skin conditions for more than a decade, the aestheticians at Topnotch Skincare combine their collective expertise with organic products from A Natural Difference to erase blemishes and signs of aging. Acne, fine lines, and other imperfections melt away like snowmen in a sauna after a custom European facial or chemical-peel exfoliation. Mud wraps and salt scrubs draw on Mother Nature’s medicine cupboard to restore skin’s youthful glow, and body polishes add a smooth luster to arms, legs, and torsos. To complement their cleansing services, the spa’s staff beautifies bodies with waxing treatments, airbrush tans, and makeup applications.
Dr. Thomas Neef works to help patients avoid surgery while still achieving their personal aesthetic goals. By avoiding scalpels and sutures, the team at Advanced Skin Care Center MedSpa delivers rejuvenation without downtime and scars. Instead, their instruments of choice include lasers that zap body hair, spider veins, and fine lines instead of burning CDs for mediocre barbershop quartets. In the treatment rooms, light-therapy devices help reduce hyperpigmentation beneath racks of PCA skincare products.
Additionally, Dr. Neef's office offers a permanent makeup expert Lynda Wilson. Through Permanent Makeup by Lynda, she applies permanent eyeliner, eyebrows, and lipliner, full lip makeup, or beauty marks. Having been in the beauty industry since 1976, Lynda is licensed and insured, and serves as President of the State of Delaware Board of Cosmetology.
