Massage Heights Wildflower Village?s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint is evident in all aspects of the business. Rechargeable, battery-operated faux candles set a relaxing air during sessions, the walls sport coats of VOC-free paint, and the staff even uses biodegradable lotions and oils during their massages and facial treatments. The staff keeps the facilities pristine with non-toxic cleaning supplies and separate bins for recycling paper, plastic, and exhaled air. This commitment to green practices grants clients even greater peace of mind as they loosen up during massage services customized according to their unique physical needs or facials attuned to address a wide range of skin care concerns.

The stylists and aestheticians at Sasha Bella Spa & Dry Bar specialize in relaxing skin treatments and glam blowouts that leave locks full of volume and bounce. Facial treatments can be customized to address dermal issues such as dryness, which is often caused by spending time in harsh weather, or fine lines around the mouth, which are often caused by sticking your tongue out at Mother Nature because of the harsh weather. In addition to beautifying faces with facials, Sasha Bella's aestheticians beautify them with makeup lessons, giving customers the know-how to re-create pretty looks on their own at home.
Image By Cindy offers a slate of four treatments that work noninvasively to help beautify clients. Ultrasonic body-slimming treatments and infrared-blanket sessions break down and sweat out cellulite from problem areas for possibly smoother surfaces, whereas teeth whitening brightens smiles and spray tans quickly bronze skin.
Elite Laser & Spa?s stained-glass windows, large rugs, and potted plants differ from the all-white, minimalistic aesthetic of other med spas. The homey surroundings reflect owner Natasha Cambridge?s goal of creating a comfortable space where clients can relax as they receive spa services including chemical peels, microdermabrasions, and facials that use diamond particles to deeply exfoliate while softening and tightening complexions. In addition to being a licensed aesthetician, Cambridge is a certified laser technician boasting 10 years of experience with the Cynosure Alexandrite and Candela GentleLase Plus lasers, which she uses to remove unwanted hair, spider veins, and pigmentation.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new-spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
