In the marketplace of health and beauty, most businesses spread themselves too thin and offer patrons a cluttered array of services. Like a restaurant where the menu has too many pages, the lack of a specialty is always a bad sign. At Electrolysis and Associates, the menu is an easy read for those hoping to evict unwanted hairs. With the latest in FDA-certified Hinkel technology, the team forages into the face-and-body follicles that harbor criminal fuzz without leaving yellow crime-scene tape behind. Treatment times vary depending on hair size and density.
Good things comes in sevens—oceans, days of the week, and the number of fingers on your right hand, to name a few. It's serendipitous then that Southern Roots Salon's owner Kristy Hodson has seven years of experience manipulating hair to her clients' whims. Kristy can skew vintage with cute and classic wave or draw on her cutting-edge techniques for a modern punk cut or bright ombre highlights. Deep-conditioning treatments are also available to rehab and fortify strands.
A place for edible creativity, Yoli's beckons visitors to concoct their own frozen yogurt treats. The shop keeps 21 different flavors—including low-fat options—on tap, and its toppings bar incites snackers to load up on as many add-ons as they please. Bursts of color aren't limited to yogurt cups, however, as the shop features red tables and booths, retro white chairs, and two flat-screen TVs to make onsite munching extra comfortable.
For more than 17 years, Maximum Tan’s bronzing bulbs have shone over clients in search of a tan. The facility houses traditional tanning beds, as well as airbrushing equipment for those in search of a hue that’s UV-free. To enhance the effects of a session, the staff can prescribe the proper tanning lotion to moisturize skin and lock in color.
The Cutera NdYag Laser, outfitted with CoolGlide Xeo technology to keep skin cool and comfortable, is the backbone of Aesthetic Laser Medical Spa and Salon, performing services such as permanent hair reduction, tattoo and spider-vein removal, and nonablative skin therapy. Unlike other lasers, this FDA-cleared laser's longer wavelength allows it to diminish hair on all types of skin, including tan and dark, and it works on both coarse and fine hair. It can treat unsightly veins quicker than sclerotherapy, it can improve skin tone and texture, and it rarely if ever requires downtime. The Cutera system's beautifying efforts are aided by facials, magic, body wraps, and Dysport injections.
At each of Urban Tan’s locations, a team of experts are on hand to help customers pick the ideal method for achieving their desired level of radiance. For guests who want a sun-kissed look, the team might suggest a Level 1 or 2 bronzing bed, and their eight-minute Level 5 beds are reserved for those who want their skin to evidence a more intimate solar relationship. Tanners can also achieve the sun's glisten without its glare in a VersaSpa sunless-tanning system, which evenly coats skin in a natural-looking solution in just minutes.
