At first glance, Lil Miss Ooh La-la looks a lot like your average up-scale salon, but with a few noticeable differences. Touches of fuschia-pink pepper the interior, popping against the sleek black chairs and elegant black and white wallpaper. The pedicure stations are situated a little closer to the ground, and the white foot baths are filled with colorful, floating flowers. The patrons sip beverages as they relax in plush, pink robes––but instead of champagne, they have pink lemonade in their glasses.
These whimsical touches make all the more sense when you consider the fact that most of the clients here are under age 13. Girls as young as 3 come to Lil Miss Ooh La-la for some age-appropriate pampering or to celebrate a special occasion with their friends. Spa parties can include everything from mani-pedis to glittery up-dos to fashion shows with music, and moms can even get in on the fun too, by enjoying adult-style mani-pedis and a glass of wine.
To make Glowing Gold Tanning Spa more than just a basic tanning salon, its team of therapists and aestheticians employs an extensive collection of high-powered tanning beds and specialized spa services. Housing three levels of tanning beds and a VersaSpa automated system, the spa offers clients a selection of standup beds, reclined beds, and UV-free spray-tan systems. While some people, such as beach-goers or those playing the pie crust in this year’s pageant, may be content with just a tan, others can enjoy Glowing Gold's other offerings, such as teeth whitening, massage, waxing, and facials.
It’s not uncommon for the physicians and medical assistants at Total Body Wellness Center to simultaneously treat an unusual leg sore developed on a trip to Costa Rica and administer Botox. A combination general practice and med spa, Total Body Wellness Center administers this type of care daily, though the majority of its patients take advantage of weight-loss and anti-aging programs.
Patients slim down with the help of physician-supervised exercise and diet plans, lab tests, and B12 shots, and they rely on dermal fillers and hormone-replacement therapy to look young enough to get into a G-rated movie. The docs and assistants go on location for house calls as well, offering body wraps in the comfort of your own home.

The multitalented team can also speed up morning beauty routines with permanent makeup and reverse tooth discoloration with in-office teeth-whitening treatments.
