Considering they're charged with maintaining an extensive array of equipment across 15 locations, it's a good thing each state-certified member of the SunsUp Tanning Centers team commits to at least 10 hours of update training each week. The constant training prepares the specialists for working with the centers' 10 types of standup and lay-down UV beds as well as with sunless Mystic Tan and VersaSpa booths. In addition to tanning, SunsUp offers the Fit body wrap, an infrared heat therapy designed to detoxify and slim the body. Patrons can adjust the wrap's four independent heat zones in 1-degree increments up to 130 degrees or until their body parts start to whistle.
A graduate of the Bella Institute of Cosmetology, aesthetician Kariss Crow knows how to make skin bright and healthy. Her secret? Natural products infused with pure ingredients, such as fruits and Mother Nature's own tears. This philosophy has led the skincare specialist to reach for products from the Clinical Skin Care Solutions and H2O lines as she customizes 30-, 60-, and 90-minute facials with a pretreatment skin analysis, steam, exfoliation, and scalp massage. Kariss also works to reveal glowing complexions with the exfoliating effects of microdermabrasion and AHA peels.
The aestheticians and physicians at Silk Touch Skin & Laser don’t take a one-laser-fits-all approach to skincare. Rather, they use the specific laser that works best for each procedure. During virtually pain-free treatments, Alma lasers permanently reduce undesirable hair, whereas a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser breaks up the inky pigments of unwanted tattoos and pet-squid hugs. With its Pixel Perfect laser, the Silk Touch team smoothes acne scars, diminishes sun damage, and eradicates wrinkles and fine lines. As an alternative to these laser treatments, guests can choose to undergo chemical peels, which remove damaged outer layers of skin and reveal a smoother layer of skin underneath.
