Since creating her aesthetic care center in 1984, owner Brenda Romanow has focused her attention on biochemical advancements in the skincare industry to provide her clients with the most effective anti-aging treatments. Under Brenda's watchful eye, Desired Image's trained staff employ a skin analysis to assess the client's dermal health, type, zodiac sign, and stress level before constructing a beauty blueprint that can include everything from chemical peels, targeted facials, and body-detox wraps to specialty treatments such as laser spider-vein removal. The beauty haven also stocks its shelves with a professional, chirally correct skincare line that helps combat inflammation and sensitivity with molecularly compatible solutions that can easily bond with the skin's lonely receptors.
After years sewing funky, girly clothing for her young daughter, Lisa Jamieson began to sell her creations online, founding the business that would become The Tutu Boutik. Colorful leg warmers, flowered headbands, and the boutique's namesake tutus line shelves and fill racks throughout the boutique's pink and zebra-striped space inside the Boulevard Mall. A licensed cosmetologist, Jamieson also makes over petite patrons' hair, faces, and nails alongside staff in the spa, forgoing techniques such as cuticle trimming that might be unsafe for tiny digits. A make-your-own-lip-gloss station grants visitors the chance to craft their own sparkly solutions, and a pink catwalk mural encourages two-dimensional guests to work the runway.
With a pool table, a dartboard, and walls lined with jersey-filled shadowboxes, Buffalo Trim feels more like a man-cave than a salon; and that's the way it's supposed to feel. The stylists specialize in treating men's hair, creating neat, trim, and professional hairdos while clients enjoy the HD televisions featured at each station. In addition to haircuts, the staff also offers a variety of traditional barbershop services intended to indulge guests while still giving them a fresh and clean look. Blending treatments help conceal graying hairs; grooming sessions keep beards, goatees, and right-angle mustaches looking sharp; and hot-lather shaves with a straight razor leave necks smooth and stubble-free.

Whether an individual, corporate entity, or educational institution, each of Vanessa's clients saves time and might become superhuman.
Inside Extreme Sun Capsule, customers can easily get a sun-kissed glow in UV tanning beds that span multiple levels of intensity, including 15-minute magnum beds. Unlike low-pressure tanning beds, which require 10-15 visits for a base tan, high-pressure beds save time by only requiring 3-4 sessions that last approximately 12 minutes each. The 360-degree UVA high-pressure bulbs used in each bed's open design also help to decrease the risk of burn in a comfortable space. The salon offers spray tanning, too, in Mystic Tan booths that deliver a custom glow in minutes. After sessions, a cornucopia of lotions helps customers prolong the life of their tan.

The treatment effectively treats most skin conditions including dehydration, oily skin, fine lines, acne, acne scarring, rosacea, solar-damage and hyper-pigmentation, and requires no down time–all while rejuvenating skin for a healthy summer glow.
