At Good Health Rejuvenation, a skin savior repairs dingy dermis with two types of Glytone chemical peels. A salicylic-acid peel gently wipes away excess oil, dirt, and chalk drawings of Conrad Bain from blemish-prone skin on a client's face, back, and chest, and the glycolic-acid peel irons out fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation, leaving skin looking millions of seconds younger. Clients can then procure medical-grade skincare products such as a mild gel or cream wash ($29), facial cream ($42–$46), or exfoliating lotion ($32–$38) to continue their skincare regimen at home. Though rare, side effects for both peels can include mild pain and itching and can last for up to a week.

Claytopia's spacious studio gives children and adults a place to test their creative chops through the medium of clay painting. A wide variety of blank, premade clay bisques offer myriad canvasses upon which the fevered imaginations of patrons may be projected. Bisque prices range from $1 to $50 per piece, and an hourly fee applies ($6 per hour for adults, $4 per hour for children under 13) to cover unlimited use of all paints, glazes, stencils, stamps, and other instruments of artistic creation, including philosophical advice and painting tips from the talented staff. Possible paintable forms include coffee mugs, plates, picture frames, and Disney figurines. All bisques and paints are food, microwave, and dishwasher safe. After painting and glazing their piece of choice, art makers should allow a week for the bisque to be fired in the kiln and laid off from its part-time job before picking up the newly hardened artistic creation.
