Dr. Ellen Turner and her staff of aestheticians, physician's assistants, and medical assistants are passionate about what they do. In a mini-documentary about their practice, they all chime in about unearthing their clients' inner beauty and enhancing their self-confidence. Through their treatments, which range from facials to treatments for acne and rosacea, they focus on making a difference in their patients' lives. A lot of times this means bringing about change that makes patients happy to look in mirrors and unwilling to hide their faces beneath brown paper bags.
Ultra Tan beckons bronzers into a spray of UV rays and natural sunless solutions. A one-month membership unlocks unlimited access to beginner-friendly level-one beds, faster level-two beds that may include facial tanners, and high-powered level-three beds that leave pelts as tawny as a caramel-dipped camel. Alternatively, stay cool while acquiring a sunny glow with a custom airbrush tan. Naturally derived ingredients infuse skin with a precisely chosen shade through a gentle Norvell misting system that seals in color for up to 10 days.
With a whole slate of automated therapeutic services, the Planet Beach staff lets their clients take in soothing massages, weight-loss treatments, and tanning without having to make an appointment. Each service falls under the relax, glow, or renew category, intended to help with everything from easing tension to whitening teeth in quick and easy sessions.
Pura Vida Day Spa and Salon—whose name comes from the Costa Rican saying—is made up of stylists, massage therapists, and aestheticians that offer a variety of beautifying and pampering services. The staffers tend to hands and feet with manicures and pedicures or augmenting heads of hair with stylish cuts and color treatments. Other services include laser hair removal, facial treatments, and massages and body treatments.
