Realizing that every minute spent primping takes away from their clients' free time, the staff of Body & Sol Tanning Boutique streamlines their services so clients can get in, get bronzed, and get out. Clients can simply walk in to the chain location closest to home, after which they consult with the Smart Tan-certified staff over which tanning method is most suitable for their skin. After deciding on intensity and length of sessions, clients hop into one of the five tiers of UV bed. The salon also offers UV-free options such as the automated Mystic HD booth, which is loaded with four different shades of tanning pigment, all of which seep into skin through the use of heated rays. Clients can choose to deepen tans with a range of Devoted Creations tanning accelerators, or simply heighten a tan's contrast with surgically implanted angel wings or the salon's BleachBright teeth-whitening kits.

Under the skin-smoothing guidance of Dr. George K. Verghese, Mid-Atlantic Skin Surgery Institute's team of experienced specialists aims to banish unwanted hairs using High Speed LightSheer Duet technology. During each laser hair-reduction session, light beams more concentrated than frozen apple juice are absorbed by hair, diminishing their ability to regenerate. The treatment, which works only on medium to dark hair, provides minimal discomfort and doesn't require extensive preparation, a topical anesthetic, and an application of gooey gel or raspberry jam. Larger areas can be treated in 15–20 minutes, with small regions taking even less time.

To further fortify results, Dr. Heron can give thoughtful recommendations on valuable local services, such as health spas, fitness clubs, superhero meetings, and dermatology offices.
Staff members at Aqua Ice Salon and Day Spa eradicate tension and enhance skin with icy, exhilarating sensations in a range of soothing spa treatments. Visitors begin their spa day by bundling up in a fluffy robe and heading into a secluded treatment room, where a therapist swathes skin in a peppermint body wrap. Packed with detoxifying seaweed extract, the wrap claims to allay cellulite and aid in weight loss, as warmth followed by a tingling peppermint-seaweed lotion brings out goosebumps to impress any fowl nesting in the vicinity. Staff members scrub and massage feet with arctic-inspired products during the icy-cool foot massage, and corpuses receive either a warm, steamy massage or an inflammation-allaying ice-therapy massage, culminating in the application of a chilly gel to commemorate the many snowmen lost at the end of winter. After a gentle trimming, shaping, and polishing of fingers and toes, a delicious lunch—tailored to omnivores or herbivores—crowns the soothing six-hour experience. Alternately, bodies can find speedier tension-taming in a fastidious body and foot massage, including the same chilly extremity scrubbing and muscle-melting choice of aromatic steam or ice therapy.
