A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 230 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.
James Frantz, D.M.D., and Mark Dorilag, D.D.S., founded Green Valley and co-captain the group's noble mission of dignifying mucky mouthbones with eco-friendly services. During the comprehensive examination that includes an oral-cancer screening, a nimble scaler frolics from tooth to tooth, feeling for suspicious craters and lumpy enamel (a $75 value). To further analyze potential maw pests, patients may be asked to pose for a full set of digital x-rays, which provide dentists with images that are more detailed than traditional film (a $102 value), and/or Panorex x-rays, which afford a panoramic view of the mouth even if clients' faces aren't made of malleable dough (a $90 value). A periodontal evaluation creates a graphic representation of the dentist’s findings to track any signs of periodontal disease and inspire relatable oil paintings (a $56 value).
The technicians at Above and Beyond Us help clients tailor their birthday suits using noninvasive radio frequency and infrared technologies. Fluctuations in weight, the natural aging process, and relentless bullying from gravity can cause skin to lose its elasticity. To counteract these influences, laser technicians and anti-aging specialists recommend radio-frequency treatments, which restore smoothness and bounce to areas that have begun to droop. They also point clients to infrared sauna and vibration-platform sessions that temporarily boost metabolism and lymphatic drainage.
The skilled dentists at Radiant Smiles guard oral health and beautify smiles with a full arsenal of cosmetic and general dentistry services. They perform procedures ranging from the straightforward filling of a cavity or a Zoom teeth-whitening treatment to more complicated undertakings, such as dental implants or negotiating a binding contract with the Tooth Fairy. Throughout each process, the professionals make sure to listen closely to their patients and explain their recommended course of treatment step by step.
If you call Laser & Skin Care Center of Nevada, a laser nurse will answer the phone, but not just to say hello. With just a description of your skin’s needs, he or she can prescribe the proper skincare treatment, quote a price, and answer any lingering questions you may have. These consultations, which can also be conducted in person, help fulfill the center’s mission that was set when it opened in 2004: to help patients achieve their optimal physical appearance and boost their self-esteem. Their treatments range from laser facelifts to teeth whitening to medical-grade microdermabrasions, and all of the nurses are extensively trained to man each type of laser housed in the office or on their secret moon base.
Careful hands at Axiom Wellness and Medical Spa pamper tender skin surfaces with a variety of beauty treatments. Targeted facial waxes rid lips, chins, brows, or third eyes of unwanted follicles, as a specialty hard wax solidifies around hairs before stripping them away. An optional anesthetic keeps Brazilian waxees comfortable. Single-strand synthetic eyelash extensions, applied one by one with an adhesive, bond onto individual eyelashes in a variety of thicknesses and colors, while lightweight mink eyelashes provide a dark sheen to solo strands after a careful application, which can last up to two hours. Both eyelash extensions can last for up to two months, which is exactly how long it takes to wink in slow motion.
