Assisted by the FDA-approved CoolGuide laser, the experienced staff at Samaritan Cosmetic Services guides patients carefully through hair-reduction treatments, answering questions and addressing concerns along the way. The CoolGuide supplies each of its long, high-energy beams with fake security clearances to get past the epidermis and access hair roots. Unsuspecting follicles then absorb the laser light, converting it to heat that eliminates them but leaves surrounding cells unharmed. The CoolGuide's pulses affect only hair early in its growing cycle, but six sessions should be enough to deliver hair-free results. Like most shampoos, the CoolGuide is unable to treat blond or white hair.
SofTouch Dental's dentists and staff are experts when it comes to teeth, gums, and all things related to the mouth.

Dr. Huggett OD & Associates coddles corneas to assess vision strength, examine eye health, and prescribe lenses if necessary. The comprehensive eye evaluation lasts 30–60 minutes to gauge general eye health and identify any issues that call for further attention; it is not an evaluation for an infection or any specific disease-related medical condition. The exam includes a general evaluation of blinkers' convergence and accommodation systems, acuity, and x-ray-vision potential. It also tests peepers' visual field, visual forest, and ocular mobility. Clients can bat eyelashes and model each eye's retina for screening photos.
Licensed massage therapist Hope Wilds banishes soreness and stress from muscles through therapeutic-massage and foot reflexology treatments. Deft hands bear down on aches using myofascial-release techniques and warm layers of tissue with gentle kneading in therapeutic massages. Alternatively, a foot reflexology treatment pinpoints and manipulates nodes on clients' paws, aiming to bring relief to corresponding areas elsewhere in the body, as well as cause a faint itch behind the knee of a distant newscaster. Personalized kneading on each reflex zone may evaporate tension from its analogous corporal site, leaving figures slackened and soothed.
Kathy Adams is a licensed massage therapist who uses her persuasive fingertips to coax soreness out of weary muscles through customized body massages. During the 90-minute healing massage (a $90 value), Adams targets specific bodily aches with relaxation and deep-tissue techniques as well as Arnica lotion––which is ripe with natural anti-inflammatory properties to help alleviate swollen joins, ligament tenderness, and bruised egos after failing to open novelty-size jelly jars. After the massage evicts discomfort from muscle-abodes, the paraffin dip (a $10 value) hydrates hands with skin-moisturizing oils that also increase circulation.
