Armed with an FDA-approved Palomar IPL laser system, Soft Touch Laser's certified technicians treat everything from blemishes to unwanted hair. Sometimes technicians remove remnants of teenage years, such as acne scars and stuck-on hall passes, and sometimes they go after signs of age, such as fine lines and loss of elasticity. As they work, the laser system's advanced contact cooling minimizes patients' discomfort from heat and light exposure. The laser's dual filters prohibits clients from experiencing excessive exposure to the pulsed light, which keeps them comfortable and helps minimize recovery time.
As soon as clients step into Pamper Me Beautiful, they're treated like royalty. During the spa's four-hour Queen for the Day package, indulgence is the name of the game, with a facial, a relaxing massage, and a mani-pedi. But the spa offers plenty of other opportunities for pampering. Along with a variety of massage therapy options, including couples and pregnancy massages, the spa treats guests with body wraps, face and body skincare treatments, and nail care. Makeovers with mineral makeup, as well as brow and lash tinting services, make features pop so much it might be hard not to slam into your reflection when you gaze in the mirror.
Founder Todd Beckman opened the first Tan Company location, then called The St. Louis Tan Company, in 1994 with a pair of average-size sun retreats. After perfecting a superstore concept with multiple levels of tanning beds and an intrepid-reporter alter ego, Beckman's bronzing business now spans 53 locations in 8 states, including 39 locations in the St. Louis area. Todd ensures each salon keeps the same high standards that won the 2010 award for Best Tanning in St. Louis from CityVoter.
A knowledgeable staff maintains each bright, highly sanitized environment and stocks shelves with Australian Gold, Swedish Beauty, and Designer Skin tanning products.

Bending and shaping the human body with a combination of techniques, such as myofascial release, deep-tissue massage, sports massage, and classic relaxation-massage therapy, Lori Maloney at Knead for Health eases tension out of weary flexors.

The licensed massage therapists and cosmetologists at Therapeutic Touch Wellness Center unshackle visitors from the stressors of daily routines. In addition to assuaging aches with four standard massage modalities, the team fosters increased health with specialized massages. Raindrop therapy draws out toxins with nine essential oils, and lymphatic drainage squeezes out excess fluid that can build up in soft tissue or defective snorkels. The Atlantis Room pampers patrons with royal treatments of an air jet tub, dry sauna, or Dead Sea salt glow scrubs.
N2 Serenity's massage therapists knead and apply pressure using massage techniques ranging from myofascial work to injury recovery. They tailor each session to the client's needs, whether they're soothing a back injured while attempting to move a uranium collection into new lead boxes or kneading the bodies of arthritic clients to ease their pain. In addition to massage, staff draw on healing techniques such as reiki and reflexology.
