The rugged beauty of nature meets the comfort of vacation amenities at REO Rafting Resort, a secluded getaway on the edge of Nahatlatch River. Throughout the Fraser Canyon, experienced guides lead groups on whitewater rafting day-trips and multiday excursions, helping beginners and advanced rafters alike to navigate class III and IV+ rapids. Some of the trips take place along the Nahatlatch and others venture to the Stein, Thompson, and Fraser rivers, all of which are less than 45 minutes away from base camp. Relaxation and pampering follow at the resort's facilities, where a hot tub, massage therapists, and glasses of beer or wine await to reward campers for their rugged displays of human heartiness.
At nightfall, guests cozy up around a campfire, but they need not roast hot dogs or trap varmints for sustenance. A team of professional chefs prepares meals for guests, which also helps prevent the risk of forest fires and bears moseying into campsites for a snack.
At the O'Neil Skin and Lipo Medical Center, an accredited surgery center, Dr. Kelly O'Neil enlists SmartLipo technology to remove fat and tighten skin. In preparation for the one- to three-hour fat-banishing treatment, patients receive an intravenous sedation, leaving nerves calmer than a tranquilized sloth in a zen garden. Next, the doctor injects the desired area with anesthetic fluid, which in combination with high-frequency vibrations readies the extra padding for easy removal. The doctor's steady hands lead the SmartLipo—a slim tube containing a laser fiber—into the area to rupture fat cells and make the skin taut and firm.
Contour Skin & Laser's signature treatments serve the sole purpose of turning back the clock. These treatments—which together comprise a comprehensive skincare program—accomplish this effect by brightening and depuffing under-eye circles, plumping lips, and boosting the elasticity and firmness of facial skin. The majority of Contour’s other services, from Botox injections to CO2 fractional laser resurfacing treatments, support the anti-aging mission, tackling facial wrinkles and erasing dullness from skin. Licensed medical providers such as nurses, the doctor who oversees the clinic, and a fast-talking stethoscope perform each service after holding a consultation to diagnose the skin’s underlying issues and formulate a treatment plan.
At Beautiful You, Dr. Jamie Fettig and his team devote themselves to helping clients achieve the health benefits of weight loss in addition to the aesthetic boons of being slim. They work toward these goals by encouraging clients to adopt lifestyle changes through custom nutritional counseling and diet planning. The staffers believe in the slimming effects of LipoLaser treatments, but they stress the importance of backing up all procedures with healthy eating and exercise. During LipoLaser sessions, they furnish headphones and video glasses to lead a guided visual experience that instructs patrons on how to break bad eating habits. By following programs and receiving LipoLaser treatments, clients can lose up to five pants or dress sizes, the same amount lost by doing 100 sit-ups in the crushing gravity of Jupiter.
Led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Amir Moradi, Moradi M.D.’s staff tends to cosmetic issues with noninvasive services, surgical treatments, and everything in between. The doctors help their clients settle on a plan suitable for their lifestyles and aesthetic goals before they undergo series of treatments, which can include laser hair removal, injections, rhinoplasty, and chemical peels from experienced providers.
Image Centre's treatment menu might seem overwhelming if it wasn't for the technicians, stylists, aestheticians, and surgeons on hand to walk clients through their options. For quick beauty touchups, they may recommend a Shellac manicure or an airbrush spray tan. A more involved appointment might include a microdermabrasion facial combined with a cherry clarifying peel, or it might consist of a Brazilian blowout and a karaoke performance of the album "American Pie" and Other Eight-Minute Songs. Most serious of all would be the center's cosmetic-surgery options, including eye-lifts and liposuction, performed at a separate surgery center. To address their long-term health concerns, clients can also explore the center's weight-loss plans, which rely heavily on B12 and other vitamin injections in an effort to impact the body's metabolism.
