Allure Medical Spa's wide realm of services keeps customers wrapped in beauty. Inside the facilities, which feature 30 patient-care rooms and small comforts such as a colorful fish tank, warm wood cabinetry, and tiled walls, guests can experience Dysport—an FDA-approved Botox-like treatment that helps defeat upper facial wrinkles such as crow's feet, between-the-eye frown lines, and worry-plowed brows. All appointments for Dysport treatments begin with a medical consultation and evaluation to determine individual needs and desired results. Then, in a procedure that takes about five minutes and features minimal downtime, the licensed and experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Charles Mok will erase evidence of disappointment and sad feelings with injections of up to 168 units—usually enough to treat most of the affected areas. Revitalized visages emerge from the procedure looking younger and fresher than newborn bread, although clients may experience minor bruising.
On an extensive résumé that boasts more than 25 years of experience, what stands out is Dr. Haitham Masri's distinction as Michigan's first board-certified facial plastic surgeon. He and other doctors helm his namesake clinic, each one wielding his or her own specialized expertise to focus on different parts of the body. Before beginning any surgery, they take as much time as necessary to answer questions and explain procedures with detailed brochures, slideshows, and diagrams.
Alongside the center’s cosmetic surgery specialty is the nonsurgical branch, where minimally invasive procedures geared toward enhancing outer appearances require less downtime. Aestheticians resurface faces with chemical peels, smooth wrinkles with dermal fillers, and man lasers to remove unwanted hair and leave bodies smooth.

The med spa procedures address a range of concerns, from unwanted hair to achy muscles. Furthermore, consultations at the center are always complimentary.

With four levels of UV tanning beds, three shades of airbrush tanning, in-booth teeth whitening, and anti-aging red-light therapy, Maui Tan is a one-stop shop for pre-beach beautification. UV beds do double duty when customers opt for teeth whitening; the stain-shooing formula is activated by the tanning bulbs' heat and light, which also attract moth-like tooth fairies for touchups. Antioxidant-rich, UV-free tanning elixir is layered onto skin by a human technician instead of a one-size-fits-all booth, helping to create a custom, natural look. Red-light therapy harnesses infrared beams designed to increase circulation, repair damaged skin, reduce joint pain, and smooth uneven pigmentation.
In the lobby, bright green leaves arc out of vases to visually pop against red walls, creating vibrant color contrast amid mod leather chairs. The spa is open seven days a week.
