Make mouth pearls shine up to eight times whiter than before with a fast and safe Zoom! teeth whitening treatment.

A set of take-home bleaching trays is also included to extend the whitening effect. One third of Crown Council’s proceeds from today’s Groupon will benefit Smiles for Life, a foundation that raises money for children’s charities.

The Clinical Skin Care Center Med Spa currently operates under the medical direction of Dr. David Azouz, a board-certified plastic surgeon with more than 25 years of experience performing cosmetic surgery on the face and body. He and their staff perform cosmetic laser procedures that use radio frequency, light energy, and other technologies to target signs of aging on the face or body, as well as acne, acne scarring, and cellulite.

The smooth, black basalt traditionally used in hot stone massage has something in common with spa owner Mahealani Trepinski's career: they were both forged in Hawaii. But while these rocks were born in the island chain's famous lava flows, Trepinski had to journey there as an adult for the training that gives her skill set a distinctive Hawaiian flavor.
The island's influence can be felt in a number of A Hawaiian Touch Natural Healing Center and Spa Inc.'s spa treatments, from lomi massages?a Hawaiian practice based on ancient ritual and music?to organic facials and seaweed detox wraps. The spa's menu is diverse, offering far infrared sauna sessions alongside a wide array of massage modalities including craniosacral, sports, and medical massage. Trepinski, who is also an Integrative Nutrition health coach, even teaches other professionals how to perform reflexology, throw spa parties, and alleviate the pain of midnight burrito cravings.
