Hollywood Tans, one of the nation’s largest chains of tanning salons, turns dermises gold with a special alchemic process known as Tanetics. Skin specialists consider each customer’s tanning goal, skin tone, and skin sensitivity before helping them choose the perfect skin-shading procedure. Four clean and comfortable types of stand-up UV tanning-booth options filter out most pestiferous UVB rays while speedily darkening pigment. Pricing varies, but five 11-minute bouts inside Hollywood Tans’ HT42 booth ($30) are enough to leave any pelt polished with a glossy base tan. For Daphnes fleeing Apollo, a Mystic spray-tan booth (starting at $19) depales pasty parchment with a misty coat of bronze that can last 5–7 days. The Mystic’s cartridges can be changed to allow users great flexibility in choosing their preferred skin patinas, or they can be purchased in bottle form for do-it-yourself home applications (starting at $19). A plethora of lotion is available to give your skin a longer lasting hue and moisturize your dermis until it's a glowing beacon of hydrated human hide.

At LaBella MediSpa, owner and registered nurse Helene Taylor and board-certified plastic surgeon Guy Cappuccino gently fell follicles with help from the Lumenis LightSheer and Palomar YAG lasers. First, a routine questionnaire and horoscope reading are administered to determine overall health and rate of hair growth in new patients. Dr. Cappuccino or Nurse Taylor then select the laser most suited to each patient’s unique skin type, tone, and dermal demands, adjusting the beam's intensity for maximum complexion protection. Aiming photon pulses at burrowing bristle, she permanently pulverizes up to 90 percent of follicle fortifications and tricks stubble into surrender with targeted heat and the promise that they’ll be granted asylum in Belgium.

Imagine dropping a stone into a pond. Though the stone only touches a small portion of the water's surface, the effects of the impact radiate throughout the entire pool. Reflexology is based on a similar idea—as a therapist stimulates pressure points on the feet, the effects are said to affect the entire body. At Magic Foot Spa, practitioners specialize in this therapy, first soaking feet in water warmed over the blushing cheeks of an ankle-anxious Victorian before targeting pressure points that correspond with various body organs. As practitioners increase pressure on each foot, the manipulation can ease muscular tension and release energy blockages in the digestive, immune, and circulatory systems.

The team also performs full-body acupressure treatments that are based on similar principles. These gentle massages work by activating the key pressure points used in acupuncture, but with fingers, palms, and elbows instead of needles. As clients lie fully clothed on a massage table, therapists focus on these points—which are believed to correspond with the body's energy channels—so that they can balance opposing energy forces and thus improve bodily function.
