Opened in 2010, Laser Treatment Associates is confident that their specialized approach will prove superior in a toe-to-toe comparison with other toenail-fungus-treatment methods. Unlike prescription oral medication, the lasers used by the practice aren't associated with adverse side effects; and whereas topical ointments must be applied regularly to take effect, just a handful of visits to Laser Treatment Associates allow many patients to nip fungus in the bud.
With more than 30 years of combined experience that includes work done with doctors, chiropractors, and insurance companies, Sherry and John Larkin have more insight into massage therapy than the staff at some day spas. They, along with the rest of their licensed crew at Colorado Injury Care, use this perspective to customize each session, addressing clients’ health histories, massage goals, and number of times they’ve walked into a wrecking ball. In doing so, they approach massage therapy as a preventative treatment rather than a luxury, aiming to avoid injury and promote relaxed minds.
The Palms Tanning Resort helps pale people escape both stress and pallor by inviting them to bask in private tanning bungalows with island-like thatched roofs and hand-cut bamboo walls. German- and Italian-made beds comprise tanning packages named for various tropical destinations, and customers can opt to upgrade their packages for an additional fee. Jamaica-level tanners gain access to the Cobra SX tanning bed, where they can repose beneath powerful fluorescents and listen to the unit’s accompanying soundtrack of snake-charmer remixes. Hopping over Mexico and into the Pacific, Hawaii-level tanning utilizes the adjustable facial rays of the Starflight tanning bed and the Lotus bed, both capable of bombarding cheeks with more or less light to create even distribution of melanin throughout the skin. The spaceship-like P90 pod, available to Tahiti-level users, enhances its powerful lamps with built-in amenities including aromatherapy, dual air conditioners, and quadruple misters that dust dermises with much-needed hydration after constantly rewatching the ending of Old Yeller. Tahiti-level guests also have access to the UV-free Mystic Tan spray tanning system, which uses a streak-free sunless solution to bronze bodies.

Former martial-arts coach Aleksandr Serdyuk employs his corporeal awareness in tandem with a therapeutic team to carry out massages and weight-loss programs. Body wraps and the heat of a traditional Russian banya—complete with aromatherapy and oak-branch treatments—detoxify the body as they supplement weight-loss initiatives. The licensed massage therapists also undergo continuing education as they build their repertoire of more than 10 massage modalities, from hot-stone techniques to deep-tissue massage for action figures.
At Lanata Advanced Skin Care, owner Amie Hawks and her staff of aestheticians refuse to use synthetic products that—in Amie’s experience—only exacerbate skin problems. Instead, they rely on eco-friendly products and progressive technologies, helping clients maintain youthful-looking skin by stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen and other proteins and chemicals designed by the cells’ teams of tiny scientists.
