Armed with safe, speedy, ClearScan laser hair removal technology, the highly qualified medical staff at Premier Aesthetic and Laser Centre are able to use a computer-guided scanning system to evenly zap away offending follicles from the lip, chin, underarm, ears, hands, toes, or neckline. While the number of treatments needed varies from area to area, all three treatments must be used on the same area, meaning customers will have to pick their favorite furry body part for swift depilation, and make it up to the others with extra cuddling.

Bronze Tan Studios' high-quality beds, spray-tan booths, and a professional staff help transform sallow skin into burnished bodies. Shade shifters will appreciate a month of Gold Club tanning with their choice of three different bed styles.

Skin Perfect's staff uses customized treatment and the most sophisticated techniques and technology to help your skin feel and look its best through exfoliation, nourishment, and protection regimens. Therapies and treatments are based on the individual condition of your skeleton-cover and on what you want your skin to become. A microcurrent facelift (a $125 value) delivers gentle electrical stimulation to facial tissue via a two-pronged instrument, triggering the release of natural chemicals that help combat the effects of aging, such as wrinkles, jowls, and cheekbones grown rigid and dogmatic in their political views. Skin Perfect services run deeper than the epidermal level, however. Attack sinus congestion and maddening allergic itching with Asian ear candling ($50), a treatment that involves inserting a long, hollow candle coated with beeswax into your ear while you lie comfortably on your side, free to daydream of a simpler time when movies starring orangutans actually stood for something. When lit, the candle draws excess ear wax and fungus from the ear canal and also helps loosen mucus in the sinuses and lymph glands.
