Though they call upon a wealth of skill and knowledge to personalize their beautifying skin and body treatments, the medically licensed aestheticians at Landa Cosmetic & Spa pride themselves most on establishing open lines of communication with their patients. Their uncommon empathy goes a long way in making patients feel comfortable, as does the fact that many of the medical spa's services take place under the guidance of a board-certified surgeon.
A repertoire of advanced tools assists the staff through treatments, from the ultrafine crystals that exfoliate skin during microdermabrasion facials to the purified proteins that fill out furrows during Botox injections. When they aren't rejuvenating complexions, they perform sclerotherapy treatments and remove hair with gentle Alma lasers and roll FDA-approved Endermologie devices across skin to erase unsightly cellulite.
At Dunsky Rehabilitation and Spine Center, Doctor of Chiropractic Joshua Dunsky applies a whole person approach to each of his patients. Instead of treating them based solely on their x-rays or relation to Stretch Armstrong, he inquires about lifestyle habits and diet to gain a full picture of health. From there, he recommends treatments that can include nonsurgical spinal decompression, massages, or corrective exercises. To accommodate busy schedules, the center offers morning hours and stays open until 7 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
The décor of Knockouts mimics that of a boxing ring, but—unlike the real thing—patrons look better when they leave. After a consultation with one of the scissor-handed stylists, your Heavyweight haircut will kick off with a relaxing shampoo. As a stylist snips, shaves, and shears, direct your attention toward the many flat-screen TVs showing all the day's top sports and a few of its bottom ones, such as mixed martial horseshoes and the World's Slowest Man tournament. After the follicular wreckage is cleared with a second round of shampoo and a rinse, your stylist will treat you to a neck-tingling scalp massage before arranging head-strands to your specifications and shellacking them in place.
The Solar System's fleet of top-notch tanning beds uses varying wattages to tint bodies in a rainbow of bronzes. Horizontal and vertical UV bulbs illuminate beds from KBL and Titan Tower. The KBL Max 10 flaunts extras such as customizable aromatherapy, cooling mist, and an audio system that broadcasts personal MP3 playlists, whether they play relaxing piano concertos or practical pneumonic devices to remember the boss's favorite ice-cream flavors. The Sunless VersaSpa spray booth kisses complexions with faux sun in three minutes, misting on a natural shade that endures for up to 10 days. Professional products are also available to accelerate and extend the lifespan of tans. The salon's sunny confines are accented by orange and red hues, hardwood floors, and leather waiting-room chairs strewn with zebra-print throw pillows.
From the sunlit lobby and comfy couch to massage rooms bathed in candlelight and warm earth tones, Bella Sisters Salon & Spa tells a tale of luxury. As clients settle into the elegantly laid-back surroundings, they can immerse themselves in beautifying services such as manicures, highlights, makeup applications, and massages, all administered by a skilled and attentive staff. During appointments, these professionals wield handpicked products from renowned brands such as Pureology, Goldwell, and Bumble and bumble, readying clients for weddings, nights out on the town, or glamorous RMV visits.
At the beginning of every massage at Soothing Comfort Massage, clients are given privacy in a warm treatment room. Once they get cozy on a plush treatment table, a licensed massage therapist enters the room, initiates a soundtrack of soft music, and disarms tense muscles with a full toolbox of bodywork techniques. Swedish massages bolster circulation and elicit deep relaxation; deep-tissue massages target chronic pain; and thermashell massages utilize heated shells that loosen muscles by cooing ocean songs. Therapists also administer massages beyond the clinic, setting up portable massage chairs at offices and events.
