Spanning more than 150 locations and six states, LA Tan's beautifying services polish pallid epidermises into shining, bronzed statues, and brighten smiles with whitening treatments. A Level 1, 2, or 3 booth tan glows warmly with UVB rays, stimulating the body's production of vitamin D and burnishing epidermises to a brilliant sheen. UV-free spray tans, such as Mystic Tan or VersaSpa sessions, quickly glaze outer skin shells into glistening hues without exposing hides to the sun's harmful rays or pitiful knock-knock jokes.

Ageless Medspa’s team of board-certified physicians, professional aestheticians, and certified massage therapists revamp patrons’ façades inside a clean, state-of-the-art facility. A licensed M.D. examines clients’ skin and Rorschach birthmarks during a complimentary consultation, paving the way for a flurry of wrinkle-smoothing Botox or Dysport injections. Knowledgeable aestheticians also treat skin maladies such as acne and sun damage with an array of facials and chemical peels, and whisk away dead skin cells with SkinBella’s crystal-free ultrasound microdermabrasion. From an expansive menu of body treatments, the staff whittles forms with Swedish Miracle body wraps, ousts dimply cellulite with Dermosonic treatments, and zaps hirsute Shave Me signs with low-energy lasers.
Technology meets beauty at Varicose Solutions, where the physician leads clients to flawless skin and tighter tummies. During his laser vein treatments, he uses a thin laser fiber to lessen the appearance of large varicose veins. Laser pixel sessions, meanwhile, resurface the skin to remove fine lines and shallow acne scars. The physician also eliminates moles and warts, and makes sagging skin as youthful and smooth as a laminated high-school yearbook photo with non-invasive tightening procedures. Beyond skincare, Varicose Solutions shrinks fat cells using nothing more than a small incision and an advanced laser device.
