Advanced Skin Care Solutions' medical director, Dr. Chris Cobb, draws from board certification and a membership in the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery to help patients touch-up their appearances during nonsurgical procedures. Dr. Cobb stays on-hand for all appointments to assist his certified medical team as they administer cosmetic injectables and wield lasers that can smooth surfaces and read any binary-code tattoos. In addition to their in-house procedures—which also include chemicals peels—the skincare professionals can recommend take-home products from brands such as Skin Medica.

Razors also offers waxing services, with arms ($50 each) and eyebrows ($20) just some of the body parts susceptible to deforestation.
Sculpted Tans' professional airbrush tanning provides a natural-looking golden glow without exposing skin to harmful UV rays, chemicals, or sharp beach glass. The pigmentally potent solution, which is odorless and made of natural ingredients such as sugar cane and red raspberries, uses three different bronzers that develop on skin in 6-8 hours and last 5-10 days. Because it's a fine mist applied by a steady-handed technician, Sculpted Tans' airbrush tan leaves no orange streaks or cheetah spots. Sculpted Tans recommends you shave or wax, exfoliate skin, and do not use any topicals before your airbrush tan, and afterward, moisturize with Vitamin E lotion or leftover BLT mayo.
The skillful sun-sprayers and machines at Tansyou Tanning Center team up to coat physiques with an eye-catching, even tan. Beach-shy bodies can loosen up with a trio of Norvell airbrush tans, applied by a professional with an eye for detail, and another eye for reading messages on blimps. The salon stocks Norvell's DHA-formulated tanning mist, which interacts naturally with skin's amino acids to develop into a bronze as dark and even as Darth Vader's breathing pattern. Those vying for the attention of simulated sun can opt for six months of unlimited 15-minute sessions in the salon's SuperClass 170-watt bed, whose regularly changed bulbs aim to cultivate rich color while avoiding burn.
Karen Laing has followed her love for beautification down many paths, including attending school for aesthetician studies, acting as both beauty queen and pageant judge, and her current profession as a permanent-makeup artist. She meticulously draws on individual eyebrow strokes or enhances peepers with permanent eyeliner with the experience that comes not only from her extensive training, but also from having permanent makeup herself. In addition to makeup, Karen also individually bonds synthetic eyelashes to natural ones to create more lush and dramatic blinks, and treats signs of aging with wrinkle-reduction, sunspot-reduction, and other anti-aging therapies.
Wielding years of practice and an arsenal of Pureology products, Breathe Salon’s quartet of stylists transforms men’s and women’s hair into chic coiffures. After a brief consultation, the shampoo-and-style pampering package begins with a sudsy shampooing to clear locks of dirt, oil, and discarded gum. Stylists seal in new fashions by running flat irons through manes or by aiming yawning blow-dryers at them. Alternatively, scissors snip away overgrowth during a men’s or women’s haircut that begins with a consultation to discuss style preferences. After washing tresses, mane maestros orchestrate strands into a style that harmonizes with clients' personality like a mockingbird harmonizes with a referee's whistle.
