At Golden Tan, the staff offers a variety of services that helps guests bronze their bods, whiten their teeth, and slim down. UV tanning and spray tanning help customers achieve their desired levels of beachy bronze or pass for Midas descendants, and an array of moisturizing, antioxidant-packed lotions aims to intensify tans. Teeth-whitening sessions and Formostar infrared body wraps further help clients create their ideal looks at multiple area locations.
At Elase spas, teams of nurses and experienced aestheticians smooth skin and tone bodies with dermal fillers, weight-loss therapy, and laser hair removal. Custom laser programs can zap hair from most body surfaces, and skin-rejuvenation treatments use intense pulsed-light therapy to reduce the appearance of sun spots, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
As a certified dermagraphic technician and micro-pigmentation specialist, Melissa Johnson spends her workdays treating scars and applying permanent cosmetics to faces. She also removes unwanted tattoos using a saline/salabrasion method that forces ink to the skin?s surface through osmotic pressure.

If a person is a reflection of her environment, then there is only one word to sum up Marie, one of A La Mode Studios' resident beauty experts: style. Chic decor hits visitors in the face as soon as they step through the studio's doors. On the left is a wall striped in off-white and light brown, and on the right is a wall of solid turquoise. The color schemes are completely different, but they complement each other perfectly—much like Marie and her fellow staffers.
A La Mode Studios isn't a typical salon or spa, and not just because it isn't located underwater. It's a collective of talented aestheticians, stylists, and other beauty professionals, each of whom leases a personal studio space. There, each independent contractor can add his or her personal decorations and products, and of course, administer their own lineup of beauty services. For Marie, that means cutting, styling, and coloring chic hairdo's for men and women. Between appointments, she and her fellow professionals often collaborate and share expert tips.
