The hair heroes at Santangelo battle their arch nemesis, baldness, with an arsenal of advanced lasers and supplements good for men and women. The hair-restoration therapy regime spreads 24 half-hour sessions over a period of three months, much like a network sitcom or a whirlwind chat-room romance. During the nonsurgical treatments, low-level laser light beams scalps to increases blood flow and stimulates follicles. Combined with topical and applications of vitamin supplements, these laser sessions can help to reduce hair loss, nourish existing hair, and in some cases, encourage nonexistent hair to come back from the grave. At the end of the three-month treatment period, Santangelo's expert technicians analyze hairs and scalps for progress with ProScope tools to determine what additional laser hair therapy will be required for full results or if customers are ready to graduate and receive their diplomas.

This devotion to luxury is seen the spa's facials, which lavish skin with Hungarian moor mud and blueberry peels, body wraps, which cocoon guests in mint or chocolate, and makeup applications, which transform faces with Youngblood mineral cosmetics. It's also evident in the high-tech far-infrared sauna and the private rooms for mani-pedis.
