At the clean and friendly Island Tanning, clients adopt a golden glow without stepping foot outdoors. Here, traditional UV tanning booths gild bodies quickly and evenly, while VersaSpa machines bronze skin instantly and with no UV exposure whatsoever. Hydration Stations, meanwhile, help to prolong tans by infusing skin with oxygen and nutrients, and can even help skin appear more toned.
Island Tanning also beautifies bodies with skin-healing red-light-therapy. The red light can help boost collagen production, fight acne bacteria, and provide pain relief, and may even help repair sun-damaged skin or balance naturally green complexions.
Decorated in muted earth tones and accented by lush plants and vivid floral arrangements, Bridgeport Laser & Wellness Center's serene lobby helps patients unwind as soon as they arrive. Clients can further set their minds at ease with the knowledge that the physician-owned wellness center is helmed by a quartet of medical professionals, each of whom excels at one or more aesthetic areas. Owner and medical director Dr. Derek Norcom offers aesthetic treatments, including vein treatments and mole removal.
Dr. Janice Buenafe helps patients find relief from hormonal imbalances via bio-identical hormone-replacement therapy. Experienced aesthetic nurse practitioner Yan Duan specializes in cosmetic injections, including Sculptra, and is also certified in hormone replacement. And Patricia Gravenites, a clinical aesthetician and medical assistant, has more than 16 years of experience as a cosmetic injector and skincare specialist.
The doctors and physician’s assistants who perform each service at Nu U Laser Centers need only choose the right laser in order to impart patients with quick, safe body and facial changes. While the Smartlipo TriPlex can less invasively slim and contours the body, the Smart Skin Co2 treatment plumps wrinkles, shrinks pores, and softens the appearance of scars. Their other treatments combat unwanted body hair, cellulite, and leg and facial veins.
As the name suggests, the doctors and aestheticians at Skin Body Soul nurture a balance between outer beauty and inner peace. Aiming to restore the body's nutrients while drawing out its toxins, treatments such as Herbalogica body wraps use niacin and soy oil to stimulate collagen production and firm up skin. Nonsurgical lipo treatments and infrared sauna sessions similarly aim to contour the body through the use of ultrasound and dry infrared heat, respectively.
Several of the spa's other offerings, including microcurrent treatments, glycolic peels, and Norvell sunless tanning, restore a youthful glow to skin. But the staff's expertise doesn't stop at the service menu. They keep a blog updated with recipes, nutrition tips, and YouTube videos of the latest dance craze the Protein Shake.
The aestheticians at Day Medical Salon have helped restore a youthful glow to patients' faces for more than 10 years. Dr. F. Douglas Day and his staff stay up to date on the latest in noninvasive aesthetic treatments, ranging from Botox and crystal microdermabrasion to sclerotherapy and weight-loss programs. The center is also equipped with advanced skin-rejuvenating machines made by Thermage, GentleLase, as well as some originally made by NASA to smooth the surface of the moon. Aestheticians rely on antioxidant-rich botanicals from Epionce as they perform six types of facials and chemical peels.
