Feel Beautiful's aesthetic artist Daiquiri Rankin, RN, enlivens soul vehicles with youth-restoring and non-invasive treatments such as Exilis body contouring. The up to 45-minute laser treatments attempt to shrink fat cells by aiming radio-frequency waves and electrical currents at unwanted adipose areas in a wealth of trouble spots, including the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. Jealous jowls, arms, necks, and adorably rotund cuticles desiring an unruffled silhouette are also eligible for this affectionate heat-hug. Additionally, the therapy can stimulate subcutaneous collagen production that tightens skin, potentially reducing the appearance of unwanted wrinkles. Reported by many to be painless, most clients experience a mild warming sensation reminiscent of hugs from a dryer-fresh teddy bear. Feel Beautiful recommends a course of four–five treatments over a six-week period for optimal results.
Skincare expert Candy Granados has witnessed the evolution of the beauty industry over the past 17 years, working at international resorts and spas and now staying on top of the latest research and technology at her own practice. She customizes more than 20 types of facials, peels, and specialty treatments with professional products by Le Mieux and Mesoestetic USA, and she adds to the relaxing nature of each visit with a face, neck, and shoulder massage. Enhancing beauty through technology, Granados exfoliates skin with a microdermabrasion device, deploys ultrasonic waves to deep-clean pores, and uses LED therapy to address redness, laxity, or pallid skin caused by clapping the dust out of chalkboard erasers.

During the past five years, Dr. Phillip Milgram has used the FDA-approved PinPointe FootLaser to address the nail concerns of more than 2,200 patients. A team of NIH-funded scientists and medical professionals spent two decades developing the technology used in the laser, which carefully eradicates fungus without damaging the nail or surrounding skin. After each of the approximately 30-minute procedures, patients can immediately resume normal activities and expect their nails to grow back clear or with a french tip.

The team's dermatology specialists also remove benign skin growths, such as skin tags, milia, and sandwich boards.
