Noticing a trend, the professionals at Monica Hair Studio departed from the industry standard and created a salon based on openness and hospitality. The studio's clients are the direct beneficiaries of this policy, as each personalized treatment leaves them relaxed, refreshed, and confident in their appearance—unlike a penguin with peacock feathers. Each visit starts with a complimentary consultation with an expert stylist, and clients are treated to services such as haircuts, keratin treatments, mani-pedis, and deep-cleansing facials. Products from Keratherapy, Dióra, and DermaSwiss prove the professional quality of the treatments, and an on-site massage therapist can ease the tension brought on by worrying about whether or not to get bangs.
Dermatone Skin Rejuvenation Center's licensed technicians and nurses wield FDA-certified radio-frequency generators for skin-tightening treatments that seek to mitigate stretch marks and cellulite. The therapeutic, deep-seeking heat massages existing collagen and promotes the production of new collagen in hopes of firmer skin surfaces. The clinic and its aestheticians, however, don't only offer this treatment?they also present a slate of facials designed with essential oils, clay masks, and vitamin C. Additionally, their weight-loss program, which is referred to as Last12Pounds uses vitamin injections, recipe books, and freezing one's snacks in a block of ice to help people look and feel better.

Before hitting a beach at the nearby Atlantic Ocean, consider stopping in at New Me Spa for a wax. The aestheticians here rely on strip-less hard wax, never double-dipping, to remove stubborn hairs from bikini areas, as well as arms, backs, chests, and legs. According to New Me Spa's owner, using this type of wax, which is allowed to harden before it is pulled off the body, can be less painful than using traditional strip wax or hugging a sap-covered tree and quickly pulling away.
In addition to waxing, New Me Spa's aestheticians treat patrons to everything from facials and peels to tanning and lash and brow tinting. They also beautify bodies with med-spa technologies, including red-light therapy and whole-body-vibration therapy.
