From the soft pillows on the wicker furniture to the luxurious drapes that conceal private treatment rooms, April Beauty Time and Health Spa is clearly a place intended for relaxation—for guests. The spa's aestheticians, however, are models of productive activity, working to beautify clients' faces and skin with waxing and skincare services or to rid bodies of excess fat cells with contouring treatments.
Though the experienced stylists at Hair Distinctions perform a slew beauty services that range from signature blow-outs to hair extensions, they specialize in corrective treatments for hair problems that result from Florida?s harsh climate. Tools from their blow-out bar help reinstate shape and health to humidity-ravaged hair with services when combined with keratin treatments and deep conditionings. Regardless of the treatment, the stylists draw from an arsenal of gentle, top-of-the-line products from Redken, Mixed Chicks, Davines, and Lanza. A newly installed blow-dry bar separate from the rest of the salon allows guests to come in for the Blow-Dry Bar or even an up-do, complete with shampoo and scalp massage.
To compliment newly revitalized heads of hair, the staffers can apply makeup for special occasions.
Although a medical doctor and nursing staff oversees the treatments at Success Weight Loss & Medspa, the atmosphere feels nothing like a doctor’s office. Operating under the belief that medically based beautification shouldn’t involve stress or discomfort, the center’s team supplements services, such as custom facials, bikini waxing, and nonsurgical weight-loss treatments, with relaxing elements including shea butter cream and hot towels infused with essential oils.
But Success Weight Loss & Medspa’s services aren’t all towels and butter. For instance, professional-grade ingredients revive tired complexions during facials, glow peels, and rejuvenating eye treatments. While clients kick back and relax, those ingredients get busy retexturing skin, drawing out oils, and erasing dark spots shaped like bull’s eyes, which attract cream pies. Success Weight Loss & Medspa also offers services such as customized airbrush tanning and teeth whitening.
Keeping client satisfaction at the forefront of its mission, the Avalon Med Spa and Laser Center recently underwent a complete overhaul that included acquiring the award-winning G.M. Collin product line, as well as a new therapist, physician, and staff. A medical director and board certified-internist leads a team of professionals, including one member with certification in aesthetic medicine, and special training in medical informatics. The wide-reaching expertise of its staff enables Avalon Med Spa to deliver a varied menu of aesthetic services that includes everything from laser hair removal to teeth whitening, Botox, and body wraps.
Devoted to bettering the patient experience, the center also nestles clients into a relaxing environment replete with plush couches and a waiting lounge done up in warm, neutral tones. Hardwood floors lead clients back to a private treatment room, where the elegant décor relaxes with furnishings such as draped, olive-green curtains, frosted sconces, and a wall waterfall that trickles out droplets harvested from the fountain of youth.:m]]

The staff at Soho Tan Spa knows there’s no single correct path to getting a glowing tan. To accommodate clients of all skin types and sensibilities, they offer tanning treatments ranging from the classic UV beds to airbrush treatments by trained technicians or the automated jets of a VersaSpa booth. Their three-pronged approach lets clients choose the level of privacy and method best suited to their skin. The VersaSpa spray tanning booths offer three tanning MyMyst shades to accommodate clients who just want a splash of color or those who want to look like they've spent weeks in a close orbit around the sun. Four brands of beds let clients emphasize facial tanning or faster tan times, while spa facials performed in the tanning salon help refresh newly tanned skin.
