Ma'ati Spa is as much a retreat for the senses as it is for the whole body. Massage therapy eases the muscles with every hot-stone session that helps clients—or couples—relax amid exposed brick walls and natural lighting. Essential oils come into play in many of the spa's treatments, but not before a thorough consultation to determine what kinds of aromatherapy are best suited to the client's needs. Out on the bright patio, flowers surround a wood deck and a tree leans over to provide shade and a non-judging ear. The main floor also does double duty as an event space, complete with a wide open floor plan that flows from room to room. Art is everywhere, from small elephant statues to elegant wall hangings, and a modern kitchen turns even the simplest parties into full-service soirees.

Having begun as a single tanning shop in Greenville during the autumn of 1990, Ultratan has since blossomed into more than 70 locations throughout the Carolinas and Georgia due to its popularity and commitment to quality service. Over the years, the collection of spas has accumulated numerous awards such as Best Tanning Salon from the Daily Gamecock for providing the best equipment in both tanning beds and spray-tan technology. As a member of the International Smart Tan Network, its commitment to safe tans also encompasses a passion for keeping their customers educated about responsible tanning routines and never tanning without a helmet.
At Perfact Brow Art By Threading, aestheticians employ a specialty method—threading—to remove unwanted hair and shape brows into immaculate lines. Using a thin, twisted cotton thread, they roll across untidy hairlines and pluck out multiple hairs at a time from the follicle, resulting in smooth skin for up to four weeks with little irritation. Additionally, Perfact's aestheticians create temporary body art—from ornate designs to the weekend's grocery list—using a natural, chemical-free dye known as henna, or employ Control Corrective or Bioelements products to cleanse faces of dirt and oil during microdermabrasion and facial treatments in completely private rooms.
BVI Sun Company features five different levels of UV tanning as well as technician-applied airbrush tans at its Fairlawn Drive location. Achieve tonal transformation in any level-one bed, with sessions that last from 8 to 30 minutes. Those put off by impersonal bulbs or sharing the sun’s rays with billions of strangers can opt for individualized attention with an airbrush tan, applied by a trained tanning technician in about 15 minutes. A precise dose of UV-free color produces immediate bronzing results, lasts for up to one week, and prevents the embarrassment of last summer’s accidental beach nap in Groucho Marx glasses. Customers should make an appointment for airbrushing sessions.
