With more than 140 salons nationwide, Hollywood Tans has left its richly toned mark on bodies from coast to coast. Four varieties of vertical HT-manufactured booths welcome clients to bask in their UV glow and walk out 10 minutes later looking like a bronze statue of themselves.

Take a deep breath inside WOW Nails and Day Spa, and the smell of lavender invites almost instant relaxation. The spa?s licensed nail technicians use lavender-scented scrubs, masques, and moisturizing creams to soften hands during spa manicures. And peppermint essential oils join up with heated stones to relax overworked feet before toenails are covered in polish. Clients can choose to have fingernails and toenails painted with regular polish or Gel polish, which protects nails for up to two weeks against chips and cat scratches. In a private area of the day spa, aestheticians lift dirt from pores and remove unwanted hair on faces, arms, and legs. Other rooms host massage therapists as they employ deep-tissue and Swedish massage techniques?the perfect end to a spa day.
Maryam Rahimi's passion for nature—and more specifically, plants—shines through in her skincare treatments, which often incorporate vegan extracts and botanicals. The medical aesthetician and president of Lily Dermal Care uses these natural ingredients to great effect, clearing away acne, hyperpigmentation, and dried-out warpaint during facials and peels. Of course, it helps that she can draw on 15 years of experience in the beauty industry to craft her healthy, holistic remedies.
The aestheticians at Elume Medical Spa work to address skin's problems, including fine lines and blemishes, using advanced med-spa technology and meticulous traditional skincare services. The skin experts use products from brands such as Obagi and Physician’s Choice, which draw from natural botanicals to plump skin by boosting collagen production, drench skin in moisture, and close up pores with oil-busting acids and by feeding them sticky peanut butter. More advanced skincare solutions include IPL lasers and SkinTyte therapy to help minimize fine lines and eradicate signs of sun damage.
