In a cavernous 17,600-square-foot space, Group Dynamix’s staff directs team-building coworkers or gaggles of youngsters through activities designed to encourage bonding and lighthearted competition. Office staffers work through tasks—such as building model covered wagons and racing them—that unite them more than playing a game of Hot Potato with a newly installed printer. Teen camps might send kids whooshing down a zip line or ascending a rock-climbing wall, and groups duck inside a dark space lined with black lights, where they can play volleyball, dodge ball, and hockey accented by crackling luminous color. Above it all, a ropes course defies gravity in the rafters of the entertainment warehouse.
In a minimalist office with ivory carpeting and black accents, Dr. Glenn Detlefsen and his staff polish away fine lines and resurface skin with injectables, laser treatments, photofacials, and peels, which can bring a youthful glow to visages without permanently situating them over a birthday cake with five flickering candles. The center bases treatments on results from Visia digital skin analysis, which investigates six aspects contributing to the health and appearance of clients' facial features, including the depth and frequency of wrinkles, the size of pores, and the number of freckles feigned with magic marker.
Owner and aesthetician Katrina Barringer opened Skin Essentials Laser and Medical Spa in 1999, and has since recruited an elite team of eight that includes a physician and a licensed acupuncturist. Each of the women on staff boasts a specialty such as bamboo-fusion massage, eyelash extensions, or aromatherapy that smells like colors. Barringer's interests are of an academic complexion, as she penned an award-winning paper and is one of 67 laser technicians without an M.D. degree to be accepted into the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery.

Erica Arancibia has two areas of expertise: getting rid of unwanted hair and caring for the skin underneath. She works with both hard and soft wax to clear away hair from almost any body part—though her specialty is Brazilians—and has aftercare products on hand to stave off irritation. She has also mastered the Alexandria sugaring technique, which removes hair in the direction of its growth for reduced discomfort. Erica never double-dips or uses recycled wax, and she always wears disposable gloves, both for hygiene purposes and in case she needs an emergency balloon.
In addition to her hair-removal services, Erica administers facials and peels. Her skincare treatments target conditions from dryness to acne with technology such as ultrasound treatments and crystal-free microdermabrasion.
