Within 4,000 square feet of pampering facilities, pink Lime Salon & Spa's team of technicians updates dos in the salon and swaddles skin with face- and body-buffing spa treatments. Guests can arrive 15 minutes early to relax with a refreshment in the lounge and admire the vibrant decor, which mingles pink and green palettes with hardwood floors, metal accents, and the sweet absence of spilled pancake batter.
The artful aestheticians at skoah treat visages to complexion-beautifying skincare "workouts" intended to help assess the skin’s condition and equip face owners with an at-home maintenance regime. Designed to ready skin for autumnal elements, the 45-minute Fall in Love (with your skin) facial kicks off with a deep-cleansing treatment to squeaky cleanify skin and follows up with a double exfoliation that peels away evidence of extended sun kissing to reveal radiant epidermal planes. Once emotion expressers have been buffed, trod-upon toes get scrubbed into gleefully squealing piggies while a foot massage eases aches and a custom moisturizer hydrates sapped soles. Savvy skin trainers advise patrons about preparing skin for cooler temperatures, doling out advice on winterizing their regimens and tips about how to trick cheeks into hibernation. Guests leave skoah with a personalized, easy-to-follow skincare plan, boasting faces as glowing and smooth as a velvet nightlight.

Rejuve!'s website hosts a live counter that tallies how much weight their clients have lost—most recently, it reported a total of 563,227 pounds. The spa's four-step detoxification treatment, designed to rid bodies of excess fat and toxins, was partly responsible for this success. The treatment begins as a technician records each person's measurements, weight, body-fat percentage, and serial number. Then, a registered massage therapist performs a 20-minute lymphatic-drainage massage to spur the body's natural filtration process. A subsequent 45-minute infrared body wrap warms to 55 degrees celsius to ignite a detoxifying sweat. Finally, the technician retakes measurements to document any inch or body-fat reduction.
rejuve! also offers infrared yoga classes held inside heated studios that augment the detoxification process. Class structures range from powerful Baptiste Free Style to slower-paced Gentle Yoga.
Tanning beds are strictly outlawed within Sundrops. Instead, owner Laura Downing hires experienced technicians who expertly spritz skin with safe, high-quality tanning solution that results in a streak-free, natural glow, rather than orangey skin. After clients undress to their comfort level, the techs use a high-volume, low-pressure spray gun to mist skin, using extra caution around hands, feet, elbows, and knees to avoid over-darkening those areas.
Their tanning solution contains botanical extract, vitamin E, and green-tea extract, but the bronze comes from two sources. First, a cosmetic bronzer with natural pigment imparts immediate colour to help the technician see where the tan is landing and give skin an instant glow, which washes off after showering. The solution's active ingredient is DHA, which is derived from sugar beets and reacts with skin's top layer. The DHA tan begins to appear about four hours after appointments and fully develops for up to 12 hours, and lasts for 5–10 days, depending on which type of tan technicians apply. The spray tan itself takes about three minutes, and clients can easily get in and out within 15 minutes to resume comedic chase scenes without losing much ground.
