At Tamara Spa + Wellness?named one of the Best Spas in Detroit by Hour Detroit in 2010, 2013 and 2013 Best Manicure and Pedicure?the licensed staff has been saving jeopardized digits and parched pores with in-depth treatments for 30 years. Comprising 10,000 square feet, the spa boasts nearly 30 private treatment rooms in which to enjoy soothing massages enhanced with soft lighting and soothing music. Or, try the rain forest water journey treatment?a therapeutic punch of eucalyptus steam made all the more serene by the addition of falling water and the gentle harmonies of an all-toucan jazz trio. Candlelit whirlpool tubs invite bodies to soak away inches or stress in baths filled with milk and honey or firming and toning tonics, and miniature pedicure tubs welcome feet to soak away walking woes with help from soothing sea salts and oils. A dozen or so facials see the spa's aestheticians personalizing each step to suit skin's specific needs, leading a writer for Spa Magazine to declare, "My skin never looked and felt so good."

With a newly minted medical degree and ability to pronounce caduceus, a young Dr. Michael W. Gray charged headlong onto the osteopathic scene. After a stint as the chief resident at Midwestern University's Chicago Osteopathic Medical Center and a fellowship at Northwestern University, the already accomplished plastic surgeon packed up his snake and staff and headed for the Pleasant Peninsula. Today, when he's not discussing advancements in plastic surgery on ABC and NBC local news, he brings his years of experience to The Michigan Cosmetic Surgery Center and Skin Deep Spa where he and his staff perform a full line of surgical and nonsurgical medical procedures.
At Skin Deep Spa, Gray practices a less-aggressive approach to cosmetic procedures with noninvasive treatments in a space designed to put clients at ease. Zerona cold-laser systems and the pulsed energy of Venus Freeze gently smooth away cellulite, for example. The in-house Beauti Bar area, manned by licensed aestheticians, sells Skin Deep beauty products designed by Dr. Gray himself to augment the cosmetic treatments. The zen-garden-inspired décor infuses the spa with earth-toned tiles, leafy green plants, the sound of rippling water flowing over stones in fountains, and ornate wooden chests filled with meditating yogi masters.
In a pastel-toned spa sanctuary, the certified cadre of aestheticians and nurses perform a symphony of cutting-edge beauty services, backed by more than 60 years of combined experience. State-of-the art treatments include medical microdermabrasion, which showers skinscapes with a mist of super-fine aluminum oxide crystals to alleviate acne scarring, soften fine lines, and free up foreheads so they can be rented as ad space. FDA-approved VelaShape sculpts smoother body contours using a combination of bipolar radio frequencies, infrared light, and mechanical massage, and dermal fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane fill in fine lines from laughing and frowning or indentations from motorcycle helmets.
Dr. David Zukkoor leads a team of certified aestheticians who specialize in painless treatments with dramatic results, such as tattoo removal, laser hair removal, laser face and body skin tightening, laser face and body skin rejuvenation, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, Botox and dermal fillers. The powerhouse piece of equipment at the med spa's center is the Revolutionary Soprano Ice, which not only zaps hair follicles and damages their ability to re-grow without pain on all skin types but also tightens and contours skin on the face and body. Luxury Med Spa also uses the state of the art Cynosure RevLite SI to remove tattoos for all skin types and all tattoo colors and will also smooth away wrinkles, uneven skin color, brown spots and acne scars.
Skinthetics Laser & Skin Care Center’s professionally trained staff has extensive laser and skin treatment experience, which puts patients at ease during complimentary consultations. At these pre-procedure pow-wows, clients learn all about the procedures in question—whether they want to extend and recolor their eyebrows, shed unwanted weight with noninvasive treatments, or rejuvenate their epidermis with a facial or skin peel. Staffers can also bronze skin during 15-minute sunless-tanning sessions and abolish unwanted hair with laser hair removal, waxing, or electrolysis. Before leaving the center, guests can stock up on beautification products in the retail area to stay pretty at home to please their judgmental pet goldfish.
The beauty squad at Bloomfield Esthetics glams up guests with facials, permanent makeup, hair removal, and mani-pedis. They'll tailor each European deep-cleansing facial to your individual skin type and wipe the pores clean with all-natural products. Alternatively, the aromatherapy facials use essential oils and an acupressure massage to soothe sensitive skin. The spa specialist, Joanne, has more than 28 years of experience in applying permanent eyeliner and lip color. The applications will stay put 24 hours a day, even as you sleep, shower, or jog through a car wash. The team can also whisk away unwanted hair using traditional waxing techniques and electrolysis.
