The team of aestheticians at Paradise Spa takes a holistic approach to inner and outer beauty. Staffers don’t just custom blend masks for facials and pamper feet with whirlpool baths during pedicures; they also ensure that clients’ inner health is taken care of with holistic wellness sessions that can balance chakras, develop spiritual awareness, and ease emotional blockages. The spa’s hydrotherapy sessions tend to muscles and nerves simultaneously by combining warm, bubbling waters with aromatic herbal blends of lavender, eucalyptus, and rosemary. Underwater LED color-light therapy, a contemporary healing technique, enhances the baths without the hassle of lassoing a rainbow and yanking it into the tub.
The spa’s licensed massage therapists take over to knead muscles using Swedish, hot-stone, and deep-tissue techniques as well as to guide clients through the stretching of Thai yoga massage. During a full day at the spa, clients can pair one of these massages with a full-body exfoliation or a body wrap made with natural ingredients, such as blueberries or moor mud. The relaxation marathons unfold against the backdrop of the spa’s golden walls, potted plants, soft lighting, and quiet music.
Vera Auvil's passion in life has always been cultivating knick-knacks and odds-and-ends—her "sweet nothings," as her husband used to say—so when the opportunity to purchase her own store came her way, she knew she wanted to fill its shelves and aisles with her favorite little things: clothes, jewelry, home décor, and makeup. She christened the shop Auvil's Sweet Nothings and set to work cultivating local artisans and national vendors who proffer goods such as De Novo, Waterford crystal, and Yellow Box Shoes. The skilled staffers at her vendor-based store can even help clients brighten smiles with Beaming White teeth-whitening services, make-over mugs with Jane Iredale cosmetics, and learn to cheat during shopping-cart races.

Ultra-sonic technology can also be an effective means of treating acne, blackheads, and other husk hindrances, and the face-freshening treatment can be administered in as little as 15 minutes.
Employing a small, motorized treatment head, Contours' Endermologie treatment helps reduce the appearance of cellulite by gently lifting and rolling the skin. During the course of 10 treatments, Contours' lipomassage device stimulates the lymphatic systems, eliminating toxins and increasing collagen production. Treatments also help to smooth the dermis by softening the connective tissue and exfoliating excess breadcrumbs. The skin-soothers at Contours will provide epidermis owners with the personal body suit necessary for each relaxing 35-minute treatment. All treatments are performed by a trained and certified lipomassage therapist, and help to tame tawdry cellulite without the use of lasers, invasive surgery, or bullwhips.
For 19 years, the staff at Class Act Salon and Spa has been doling out dozens of salon and spa treatments designed to meet the needs of every face, body, and head of hair. Along the way, the salon's hairstylists have earned a reputation for repairing strands suffering from bad dye jobs or perms, carefully applying corrective color treatments and softening frizzy poufs with the CHI permanent-straightening system or custom-designed root perms. To help clients choose the best cut for their face shape, a computer-imaging system lets them see what they would look like capped in various styles or with George Clooney's chin and presents them with a take-home DVD or VHS as a reference.Heads boasting little hair to work with can find several options for filling out their follicle count, including laser hair therapy, hair integration, and wigs or permanent attachments. For those with too much hair, needleless electrolysis swiftly evicts up to 10 hairs at a time without lasers or a court-ordered removal, and microdermabrasion and herbal peels escort dry, dull skin cells from the skin's surface to let softer, smoother skin move in.
As the company's mantra states, the staff of Physicians Medi-Spa aim to help clients reverse the various processes that wreak havoc on the skin and body. Under supervision from the doctors that own the spa, aesthetic technicians use an arsenal of elōs lasers and radio-frequency technology to unburden skin of signs of age, unwanted tattoos, and excess hair. Customers can avoid the invasive nature and downtime of plastic surgery with CoolSculpting treatments that target fat deposits, or Ultherapy ultrasound sessions that tighten facial skin loosened from years of playing checkers against high-powered fans.
