Certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Michelle Hardaway and her staff customize each cosmetic procedure to the customer's needs, vein visibility, and Planeteer power. The non-invasive laser vein treatment eradicates spider veins using laser-transported micro-maids that dust away cobwebs and tidy up the epidermal underworld. Today's deal is only good for spider vein treatment, though Aesthetic Plastic Surgery also performs a full menu of surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures.
At International Therapeutic Massage, the staff values well-being above all else. They dedicate the full appointment to the massage, refusing to subtract any time for changing, a consultation, or a quick game of patty-cake to warm up the therapist’s hands. Once a client stretches out in one of 10 treatment rooms, the therapist goes to work using various techniques—deep-tissue, prenatal, or Swedish, for example. These techniques are designed not just to alleviate pain and discomfort, but also to improve mental well-being, promote self-healing, and enhance the immune system.
Bio Balance Therapy's staff works to shape silhouettes and smooth skin with massages, organic scrubs, and mineral-infused mud and seaweed wraps. During the cellulite massage, deft digits work to dislodge fatty deposits, clearing the way for overstayed toxins to escape the body inside “ahh” speech bubbles. An organic concoction of brown sugar, coconut milk, and orange rind, the body scrub gently exfoliates newly smoothed epidermises, and the parafango body wrap works to tighten skin with mineral-infused mud and firm pressure. During a libido-boost wrap, spa staff swathes bodies in organic seaweed mud, essential oils, and aphrodisiac herbs grown by French maids.
Certified massage therapist Crystal Jennings helms Mellow Moods Therapeutic Massage, thoroughly yet tenderly traipsing her trained hands over musculature suffering from chronic pains and severe aches. During the one-hour fusion massage, Jennings pays special attention to the neck and shoulders, blending Swedish and deep-tissue modalities with passive stretching techniques to temper muscular tension, treat adhesive tissues, and diffuse active trigger-point pain and microscopic thermal detonators. As a heated massage table and warm-towel treatment mollify soul sacks, a calming soundscape aims to uproot anxiety from the mind—the one stressed-addled place Jennings isn't able to massage due to the skull's thickness and a lack of neurological training.

She has a number of ways of accomplishing that—she trained as an aesthetician in France and is a licensed massage therapist. Sylvie oversees a wide variety of services, from facials to waxing. Also available: at-home spa services as well as spa parties, although terry-cloth noisemakers will not be provided.
The human body is capable of healing itself. Health practitioners at Bowenwork Energetics use natural treatments to enhance the healing process. Bowenwork, a little-known holistic therapy that uses small, gentle rolling movements in precise locations on muscles, tendons, and nerves, sends messages to the automatic nervous system to prompt automatic brain commands to each area stimulated, causing the affected area to ‘reset’ itself to its default state. Bowenwork is believed to be able to improve circulation, rebalance the body, and relieve acute pain. Treating everything from migraines and carpal tunnel syndrome to sciatica, digestive problems, and back pain, practitioner and Reiki master Surrinder Arora studies the detailed medical history of each of her clients before healing the body with Bowenwork treatments.
Dr. David Zukkoor leads a team of certified aestheticians who specialize in painless treatments with dramatic results, such as tattoo removal, laser hair removal, Botox, fillers, spider-vein removal, laser facial rejuvenation, and microdermabrasion. The powerhouse piece of equipment at the med spa's center is the Cynosure Elite MPX laser, which not only zaps hair follicles and damages their ability to regrow, but also treats legs and facial veins. Luxury Med Spa also uses the state of the art Cynosure RevLite SI to remove tattoos and smooth away wrinkles and acne scars.
After treatment, clients can escape to a low-lit haven as the spa creates an otherworldly atmosphere with tropical plants, funky glass sculptures, and walls of tiny tiles as bright and iridescent as dewdrops.
