Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique and Spa, which references the nickname given to her by her patients, and bills itself as "South Florida's First Dental Spa", doesn’t take it personally that many of her patients don’t like the dentist. Instead, Dr. April Patterson does what she can to help. “There are about 30 to 40 million Americans that suffer from dental anxiety,” she said during a segment on Good Morning America. “I wanted to do everything I can to make those clients feel like they are not at the dentist.” So she bolstered her routine dental services—preventative care, implants, bridges, whitening, crowns, and braces—with a full spa menu. The result is Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique and Spa, which references the nickname given to her by her patients. And it’s not just the soothing, spa-like atmosphere that calms clients, she says, “A client … coming in to have their dental veneers done [can] come in an hour early, and they can have a facial or a massage while their Valium kicks in… they come in to start their dental procedure and they’re nice and relaxed.” Her aestheticians adhere faux eyelashes to lids, arch eyebrows, and artfully apply permanent makeup. Dr. Patty also administers facial rejuvenation treatments such as Botox, Juvéderm, Dysport, and more. Additional services include invigorating lemon-scented warm towel service, silky paraffin-wax treatment for hands, temple massage therapy, refreshing cucumber eye presses, and personalized movie and music selections. Clients can also enjoy access to a spa locker room with many amenities such as complimentary robes, slippers, and a private shower area available for use before and after treatments.
Blushing Society's beauty professionals travel straight to their clients. It makes their personalized spa treatments even more stress-free. Their massage therapists can thoroughly knead away aches and pains using deep-tissue, aromatherapy, or pregnancy modalities. Facial treatments help add nourishment and hydration to skin, while waxing treatments can leave it as smooth as a sandblasted slip-and-slide. The stylists help create eye-catching new looks as they trim, shape, and revitalize tresses.
Additionally, Blushing Society offers the services of beauty and fashion concierges, who provide individualized guidance for clients looking to buy new clothing or accessories, regardless of budget or style.

If it involves the eyes, Iy Kandii Lash Boutique can do it. The spa’s licensed extension specialists enhance natural lashes with professional adhesives and semipermanent extensions in a range of colors. They custom cut each application to create the desired amount of length and volume—whether clients want a natural look or the ability to sail a boat by blinking. Once extensions are in place, they can wax or thread eyebrows into perfectly symmetrical arches or make eyes pop with professionally applied makeup. Aside from dressing up the eyes, they also dole out cleansing and exfoliating facials and travel to parties and special events across town for in-house services.
