Lasting only a fraction of a second, a pulse of light flashes over skin. As the energy builds within specific targets?hair follicles, sun spots, spider veins?it triggers a transformation that helps patients attain clearer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.

At the offices of Goodman Dental Care and Tangerine Dental Care, dentists Pierce Goodman, Aaron Goodman, and Robert Brown help patients maintain and beautify mouth bones with general, preventative, and restorative dental services. During exams and cleanings, hygienists snoop through mouth caves in search of cavities, gum disease, and year-old everlasting gobstoppers, whereas Lumineers and professional Zoom whitening services brighten dulled teeth so patients may flash bright, sparkling smiles. Also specializing in pediatric dentistry, the friendly tooth techs care for budding chompers while setting little minds at ease through education and fun games.
At each of Half Dental’s locations, skilled dentists aim to carry out the company’s mission: provide quality preventative and cosmetic dentistry at affordable prices. To that end, each office cuts out the middle man by using factory-direct tooth implants, and fabricates and repairs dentures in an on-site laboratory. Half Dental’s dentists, surgeons, and nurses also employ advanced technology to ensure clients receive the most effective treatment, filling cavities without drills, brightening smiles with BriteSmile and ZOOM! teeth whitening treatments, and using software imaging to forecast effects before starting procedures. And at the Las Vegas location, an advanced ND: Yag laser addresses gum concerns while eliminating inflammation and incoming asteroids.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray-tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.

When it comes to permanent makeup, Janet Nodine isn't just savvy—she's certified. Already an experienced cosmetician, Janet picked up multiple credentials from the American Institute of Intradermal Cosmetics as she honed her ability to enhance lips, eyebrows, and lashes with natural pigments applied to the dermal layer of the skin. She also happens to be a certified nurse-midwife with a master of science in nursing, but her main focus at Lily Aesthetics remains complementing each client's skin and eye tone with suitable color palettes.
