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.
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.
Buffalo Airbrush Tan’s bronzing expert, Jessica Stokes, modifies skin tones with custom-blended spray tans, helping tanners to spurn the risks of sun exposure. The morning of the tan, clients exfoliate their skin before the appointment, eschew moisturizer and deodorant, and wear loose-fitting, dark clothing. Jessica custom-blends a tanning agent to the shade of each client’s choice before evenly bronzing bodies with a handheld airbrush. The exclusive Simplee Bronze tanning agent contains FDA-approved dihydroxyacetone—DHA—which reacts with amino acids in skin cells to evenly darken skin without leaving streaks or henna. The agent washes out of clothing and does not fade to orange.
Green Spa's staff puts equal emphasis on traditional Western spa treatments and more alternative, holistic services that blend energy work with massage. The spa services include six massage modalities including shiatsu, Swedish, and Thai massage styles. Other body treatments employ herbal mud and organic sugar scrubs to tone, detoxify, and candy skin. Registered nurse Joei Marie Lucey helms the holistic branch of services, using medical know-how alongside her belief that "the body can heal itself," she says. In addition to energy therapies and nutritional counseling, the nurse can recommend organic beauty products and organic Vemma supplements to clients for what she calls "beauty from the inside."

Aesthetician Jennifer DiFiore pampers patrons with waxing, anti-aging indulgences, and skincare treatments that use natural Pevonia Botanica products.
