At Iman NP Center, a nurse practitioner and a specially trained staff make it their goal to ensure that all of your health and aesthetic concerns can be solved at one convenient location. Primary and preventative care services include annual exams, during which patients ages 12 and up can ask specific health questions or learn more about their newly sprouted a tails. Cosmetic procedures can address weight loss and cellulite reduction, and the staff can perform laser i-Lipo treatments to eviscerate fat cells or apply an infrared or herbal body wrap to detoxify the body and reduce the appearance of excess weight.

Honey and raw silk aren’t two things normally associated with a spa, but at Beauty Within, they’re key components to reaching beauty and relaxation. Honey-dew facials moisturize and gently exfoliate the skin, thanks to honey’s alpha-hydroxy acids and humectants. And raw silk comes to play during the garshana massage, an ancient massage technique from India. The massage therapist wears special gloves made of raw silk and other fibers that help boost circulation and oxygen flow. Other services at Beauty Within include slimming body wraps and body sculpting.
The technicians at Fit Slim of Michigan don't use scalpels or lasers to contour physiques. In fact, they don't even touch their clients' bodies. Their noninvasive UltraSlim treatments are a form of red light therapy—they harness light emitted through 144 LED diodes to emulsify fat cells. As UltraSlim scanners pass over a 23"x17" area of skin, the light prompts cells to release their triglycerides and fatty acids, which are then processed naturally through the lymphatic system. This eight-minute procedure entails no recovery downtime, and typically clients choose to target the waist, thighs, or midsection to reduce signs of cellulite and wrinkles. However, it can also firm up skin on the face, fading fine lines more efficiently than the eraser of a No. 2 pencil.
The wellness wizards at Soul 2 Sole strive to cleanse the body of toxins with soothing foot detox sessions in an IonCleanse Premier ionic footbath. In each 35-minute appointment, tired tootsies take a break from punting uncooperative boxes of plastic battery packaging by soaking in a soothing saltwater bath alongside a metal array activated by a low-level electric current. The current generates positively and negatively charged ions aimed at drawing out the body's toxins via acupuncture and reflexology portals in the feet. This detoxification process is believed to heighten energy levels, improve flexibility, decrease pain and headaches, and impart the ability to purify water by running fingers through it. Groupon customers also receive 15% off detox tea.
Doctors Weight Loss & Spa’s roster of physicians, captained by Dr. Ban Mechael, restores faces to youthful vigor with 30-minute, minimally invasive procedures. Twenty units of Botox render wrinkle-causing muscles inactive with miniscule shots, shooing away crow’s-feet and unfurrowing areas of the face that prevent skin from being as smooth as a stone bust of Barry Manilow. The beauty-boosting injection reaches its aesthetic potential within days and results generally last up to four months. Alternatively, Juvederm injections remedy wrinkles caused by loose skin with a specially formulated gel designed to smooth out epidermal expanses. Clients often experience mild swelling and tenderness following the treatment, but seven days of rest usually restores faces to fine fettle. Juvederm’s effects are noticeable immediately and usually last for up to a year, keeping faces absent of wrinkles like a shar pei's bizzaro-world twin.
