The private rooms at Tan-Tastic Tanning yield many paths to acquiring richer pigmentation. Among the most popular of these are bronze-, silver-, and platinum-level tanning beds that imbue skin with varying degrees of UV light to ensure a smooth and even tone. Bronze beds illume bodies and faces with separate tanners, silver beds cradle client in an ergonomic acrylic base that includes a ventilation system and mp3 plug-in, and platinum beds boast high-pressure bulbs and shoulder tanners. Just off to the side of its more traditional siblings, a VersaSpa spray-tan booth burnishes skin with a UV-free mist until it achieves the rich, bronze hue of a deep-fried garden sculpture. At the salon’s front desk, lotions and elixirs from Swedish Beauty and Australian Gold mingle with blends from Devoted Creations, such as a skin-firming aromatherapy formula with anticellulite agents and white-birch extract.
Coastal Vein & Cosmetic Laser Center, which includes The Spa at Coastal Vein, is headed by board-certified cardiovascular surgeon Dr. Capallo and his staff.

Private treatment rooms also host skilled techs who eradicate unwanted hair with the high-speed LightSheer Duet laser system or temporarily perk up aging expressions with dermal fillers. To further enhance beauty at home, Dr. Capallo can evaluate and prescribe the Obagi Nu-Derm System and Latisse products.

As the proprietor of his own practice, Lenny schedules his appointments with plenty of time in between so that sessions remain as leisurely as a sloth's Sunday afternoon yoga session.
The weeping willows hanging over Christopher George's Salon herald the serenity of the idyllic space they shade. The airy space sprawls across 1,000 square feet of leather chairs, black-lacquered wood decor, and high-end haircare products from the likes of Paul Mitchell. Talented stylists with 22 years of experience bustle about the salon, shearing strands into face-framing shapes during designer haircuts and refashioning follicles into a northern-lights-like display of color with partial highlights. Complimentary chalices of wine occasionally accompany treatments, providing a tasty alternative to the barbicide cocktails served at most traditional salons.
