Alumni of the American Academy of Nail Technology opened Traci & Charli's in 2009. Kari Wilkinson, one of nine skilled stylists on the Traci & Charli's staff, honed her skills at the Tony and Guy Hairdressing Academy, and uses those skills to help transform clients' hair into lustrous manes with cuts, color treatments, and conditioning.
The tech-savvy engineers behind DaVinci Teeth Whitening brighten smiles by activating a special lamp that works in tandem with a whitening solution made fresh every week in an American lab. All of DaVinci's treatments work to rid teeth of lackluster hues, clingy stains, and embarrassing love letters to dentists without weakening tooth enamel.
Whitening Fast’s skilled technicians wield a specialized gel and LED light to brighten blemished bicuspids up to eight shades. During the 20-minute advanced treatment, an experienced aid provides a tray and clients bite down to coat molars in a whitening formula and fit them with a special mouthpiece that leaves teeth exposed. Once blue light from an LED lamp activates the gel, the release of hydroxyl radicals helps to speed the breakup of stains and Hollywood romances between actors who aren’t dentists, but play ones on TV. All of the whitening products do not damage tooth enamel and are safe to use with crowns, veneers, or bridges.
Each 15-minute session is a safe, effective way to whiten teeth two to six shades. The chair-side procedure uses prefilled whitening trays to baste mouth bones in a hydrogen-peroxide solution that’s painless to use, even for sensitive mouths that erupt in a geyser of tears when they accidentally kill an ant. For an extra-turbo boost to aid in the destruction of stains, the Whiter Image treatment uses a premium-grade blue LED whitening light that penetrates tobacco, coffee, wine, and asphalt stains to reveal your mouth’s most radiant picket fence. The beauty aestheticians at Slick Rock provide state-of-the-art customer service to match the state-of-the-art equipment in the clean, modern spa atmosphere. Healthy teeth are important for making a good impression, as well as for providing concrete proof to your significant other that he or she is not hallucinating your suddenly increased hotness, only your third eyeball.
Dr. Scott Johnson believes the best treatment is prevention, and so he looks at every single tooth on his patients’ sweet shark tattoos before examining the patients’ mouths to hunt down decay and gum disease. Afterward, he prevents future enamel damage with fluoride treatments and educates patients on proper brushing and flossing. But even though the dentist stresses preventive treatment, he's fully prepared to deal with dental miscues. Natural-colored fillings repair cavities, and dental implants replace missing teeth altogether. Patients can also spruce up their smiles with Zoom whitening treatments or conceal cracks behind porcelain veneers.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas?its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries?Planet Beach A 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.
