Dr. Ellen Turner and her staff of aestheticians, physician's assistants, and medical assistants are passionate about what they do. In a mini-documentary about their practice, they all chime in about unearthing their clients' inner beauty and enhancing their self-confidence. Through their treatments, which range from facials to treatments for acne and rosacea, they focus on making a difference in their patients' lives. A lot of times this means bringing about change that makes patients happy to look in mirrors and unwilling to hide their faces beneath brown paper bags.

Knockouts Haircuts for Men is a guy-centric salon that's been featured on the Today Show. Its décor mimics that of a boxing ring, but—unlike the real thing—guests look fresher when they leave.

Your heavyweight treatment includes a consultation, before-and-after shampoos, a cut, a rinse, and styling according to your personal preferences. Each weary head will be treated to a scalp massage and one nametag identifying it as "Movie Actor Harrison Ford."
