Putting the "shine" in Urban Shine Spa and Tanning Salon, owners Chris and Sunshine Dolph keep bodies golden with advanced UV tanning equipment. Premium tanning beds rely on a mixture of UVA and UVB rays to create similarly sun-kissed glows. For optimum UV tanning results, Urban Shine recommends that clients utilize different types of beds—a task made simpler thanks to the spa’s daily hours of operation. Spa services include sessions in the far-infrared sauna, aqua massage bed, hydration station, and the Cyber Relax massage chair.
With more than 45 years of combined skincare specialization, the staff of physicians, physicians' assistants, and aestheticians at Southwest rejuvenate facial skin with a variety of advanced toning techniques. Through a series of four Biomedic chemical peels, undearly departed skin cells are sent to their final resting place to make room for smooth, youthful skin at the surface. The alpha- and beta-hydroxy skin treatments, which are safe for most skin types, are scheduled approximately two to four weeks apart and aim to restore healthy glow by reducing the appearance of wrinkles, blemishes, scarring, sun damage, and unsightly moon bites.

The deft muscle-manipulators at Special Touch Hair Designs knead bone-movers into ache-free bliss with stress-busting massages and pampering spa treatments. The 45-minute hand-and-foot paraffin treatment encases extremities in warm, sticky wax, locking in moisture to leave hands and feet as soft as the Pillsbury Doughboy’s favorite neck pillow. After removing the wax, therapists complete the pampering with hand and foot massages. A one-hour relaxation massage focuses on liquefying tension with broad, smooth strokes while moisturizing skin with cocoa butter or hypoallergenic lotion. Therapeutic massage focuses on knotty muscles, applying deep pressure to clenched backs and shoulders to increase range of motion and circulation. A clean, softly lit room ensconces guests in a serene atmosphere during sessions. Quiet music and warm sheets encourage guests to drift into relaxing reveries, daydreaming about floating through clouds or visiting museums filled only with busts of Teddy Roosevelt.
