Many people think that if they need to get serious work done—a therapeutic massage, microdermabrasion—they have to sacrifice a spa environment for something more clinical. Spa Space defies that notion by offering an extensive menu of results-oriented treatments in a relaxed, sophisticated atmosphere. Their approach has been lauded by many: Lucky magazine called the space "pure bliss," while Allure honored their Pacific Paradise body treatment with one of their coveted Best of Beauty awards.
As one of their signature services, the Pacific Paradise treatment follows with Spa Space's philosophy. Not only is it a 30-minute mango scrub that softens skin and relaxes the body, but it also includes a one-hour massage that reduces tension. Most of their treatments are this way—there's also a pedicure with almond oil to treat dry, itchy skin, and a Sonya Dakar fitness facial with massage to tighten facial muscles. Services are administered with products from brands such as Kiehl's and SkinCeuticals, and clients can arrange to order lunch from Pastoral between services for their hungry bike waiting outside.

A top 1% Invisalign provider in North America for the past four years, ORA Dental Studio strives to take the stress out of dentist visits by embracing the latest advancements in medical technology and minimally invasive procedures as well as patient amenities. Each of the practices exudes a soothing, contemporary vibe complete with spa-like touches, such as massaging dental chairs in the treatment rooms, aromatherapy systems, and warm, lemon-scented facial towels. Putting visitors even more at ease is the teams' use of cutting-edge diagnostic technology—such as digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, and Magic 8-balls invented by NASA—as well as gum-contouring laser systems and drill-free alternatives to remove decay.
Whether the dentists are scanning for trouble by performing preventative screenings or beautifying smiles with the help of teeth-whitening lasers, porcelain crowns, or bonded composite fillings, they do their best to ensure that patients feel confident in the quality of their care. ORA Dental Studio's teams also believe that the health of individuals is inextricably linked to the health of the planet as a whole, so they embrace eco-friendly practices whenever possible.
Metropoli-TAN Airbrush Tanning's licensed aesthetician simulates the sun's rays to counterfeit tans. As with any good counterfeit, creating an authentic-looking tan requires some artistic skill and the right resources. She starts with Norvell Tanning Solutions products, which she wields so capably that the product manufacturer certifies her skills. She then hand-applies the pigment-inducing spray with an airbrush, taking into account things such as the body's natural contours and whether or not your imaginary friend fell asleep on your stomach at the beach yesterday. The result is natural-looking, UV-free tans.
Dr. Perlin and Dr. Jonynas lead a staff of trained technicians at Smiles By Design to even out unwanted fine lines and wrinkles with crease-targeting injections of Botox Cosmetic. Each microneedle injection works to reduce muscle activity to temporarily soften the appearance of facial furrows until countenances are as smooth as cashmere-clad clouds. Patients consult with a healthcare professional to focus on flattening pesky creases in areas such as the forehead, upper neck, brow, and lips. The procedure takes a few minutes, depending on the number of treatment areas, but the effects of treatment may not become apparent for several days after the session. Results, like a snowman's life-insurance policy, may last up to anywhere from three to six months.
Lillian is one of the 4 out of 5 dentists that always seems to agree about things, but what about the 5th dentist? Where is he/she hiding? What happens to the minority dissenting voice? Did you know that crypto-zoologists have been scouring every unmapped piece of land trying to locate the mythological 5th dentist. Skeptics believe he never existed. Dentists deny knowledge of such a creature. The only documents the government has released on the matter have vast sections blacked out.
The founder of Smile More Today, Dr. Amit Kumar, who treats other dentists, and his on-staff maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Sunil P. Sinha, combine their extensive expertise in general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry with industry-leading technology. Composite-resin fillings replace cavities without the use of heavy metals, digital photos help dentists and labs communicate, and digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation emitted by traditional x-rays or superheroes by up to 90%.
No matter what the treatment, the doctors believe in pampering patients with upscale amenities, such as aromatherapy, neck pillows, warm facial towels, and a refreshment bar stocked with coffee, smoothies, and snacks. They can also dissolve facial wrinkles with Botox cosmetic injections and help soothe tension headaches and migraines with headache appliances and soft lullabies.:m]]
