The physicians and aesthetic staff all possess warm, friendly demeanors, ensuring that clients feel comfortable as they undergo one of the center's many beautifying treatments.

Several services take a more scientific approach, employing lasers to remove spider veins, hairs, and cellulite.
Elite Laser Hair Removal’s friendly skin savants can help evict undesirable body hair through a series of six FDA-approved laser hair removal sessions. During each treatment, clients relax while a specialist hovers a GentleYAG laser above the patch of pesky fuzz, blasting each strand down to the root like the Death Star removing old stumps from Darth Vader’s backyard. The laser can deforest bikini lines, preparing bodies to bask on the beach; smooth away underarm hair to cut down on shaving time; or clear out neck fur to better showcase a necklace fashioned from corn husks. Results may differ depending on hair color and coarseness.
