Healthy refreshments await clients who walk into Epiphany Medical Spa, but many of the spa’s treats aren't for eating. Epiphany's team incorporates organic ingredients, such as dark chocolate and royal jelly, into customized facials and enhances therapeutic massages with antioxidant-rich chocolate and invigorating peppermint oils. And the pampering doesn’t stop there. Trained aestheticians and medical assistants keep clients a comfortable distance from the knife with state-of-the-art medical equipment. Non-surgical lipo-cavitation, for example, invasive vacuum procedures, instead deploying painless ultrasound waves to shut down fat cells and tackle stubborn areas, such as love handles and forehead chub.
Ron Haynes and his daughter, Jessie, have built a business from smiling faces. They don't snap yearbook photos or transform dentist gloves into balloon animals. Instead, they helm teeth-whitening shops that brighten smiles in 20 minutes. Since 2005, they have brightened over 50,000 smiles annually across five states. The locations in North Carolina offer either convenience at their South Park Mall kiosk or privacy at their office locations. Armed with Beaming White, a special light activated gel teeth-whitening system that pairs a peroxide-based gel with a UV-free LED light, their team of technicians helps clients brighten their choppers with an applicator pen. An applicator pen exposes the teeth so the gel and light reach every inch of enamel. Once the light unites with the gel, coffee, tea, and grass stains begin to vanish. Teeth continue to lighten after the treatment, achieving a color that's 3-7 shades whiter over the course of 24 hours. With proper care, results can last up to 12 months, or roughly the time it takes to adapt the phonebook into a comedic opera.

Though Dr. Charles Payet draws upon more than a decade of practicing dentistry, he still attends advanced dental-training courses every year. These courses keep him savvy to the latest developments in dental technology. They also keep his skills sharp—so sharp, in fact, that he has taught budding dentists at UNC School of Dentistry how to repair cavities and survive in the wild with only a roll of floss. At Smiles by Payet, he keeps teeth in mint condition with exams and cleanings and also performs cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening, veneers, and six-month braces.
