At Maumelle Medical Center, professional staffers led by doctors Salman and Abeer Hashmi aim the Cutera Xeo laser at follicular overgrowth to help cultivate smoother bodyscapes. Beams gently remove excess hair and discourage renewed growth, just as falcons discourage the growth of a gopher colony. Clients can fuse two Groupons to double treatments for heightened effectiveness or to target two areas. With each visit, skin continues to defuzz, shortening shaving time and improving aerodynamics while skydiving nude.
Inside a sunny office tucked beside lush woodlands, Hot Springs-native Dr. Teale and the highly trained staff prioritize patient-centric care. A few moments in the bright, modern office—painted in soothing hues of mint and eggshell—exposes their covert mission to transform dental visits from a dreaded chore into a pleasant biannual ritual. Every exam room looks out onto a lush garden, though during rainy days or the long-foretold lawn-gnome uprising, patients can still find comfort in the cushy massage chair, personal TV, and music hookups. This general dentistry office maintains state-of-the-art equipment to closely monitor oral health, including a 3D x-ray, which captures skulls from ear to ear, revealing hidden roots, bones, and forgotten q-tips. After every treatment, patients refresh with a nourishing slick of lip balm before checking out their polished molars and bicuspid tattoos in the ornate looking glass dubbed the "Smile Mirror."
Williams' Family Dentistry's seasoned staffers examine and de-grime tusks during approximately 45-minute appointments. After a skilled technician snaps either two or four bitewing x-rays depending on the patient needs, the doctor will venture into mouth caves in search of cavities, gum disease, and ingrown milk moustaches. Once he or she thoroughly probes teeth and examines x-rays for any internal issues, a hygienist sloughs off plaque and evicts unfashionable tartar stains from pearly premises to yield healthier looking smiles and Mr. Ed impersonations.
Within one multifaceted facility, Tahiti Tans & Travel bathes clients in a suite of pampering and aesthetic services while acting as an oasis of relaxation. Spray-tan mists and UV beds grace skin with a sun-drenched glow as epidermises contrast with gleaming teeth fresh from a whitening treatment. Packed with nutrients from chocolate or sea clay?which dolphins also use in their beauty regimens?body wraps cloak guests snugly as they nourish the skin. Tahiti?s massage therapists also work kinks out of backs using traditional modalities, hot stones, and automated hydromassage beds as they knead away stress.
Soft pale-blue walls greet guests as they settle into Complete Transformations Clinic & Spa's waiting area, the relaxing aura further enhanced by warm lighting and cheerful cherry blossoms. The same sense of calm rolls over into each private treatment room, where the spa's skin, massage, and nutrition-counseling services take place. Nina Roy and Jill Tuck—both RNs and skin specialists—brighten and smooth complexions with crystal microdermabrasion, Jessner's peels, and custom facials, treating conditions such as age spots and acne scars with products by GlyMed and Vivant. Resident massage therapist Heather Seewald employs a variety of soothing modalities to release tension and undo knots french-braided around the spine, whereas personal counselor Angie Turner guides clients on their journey to greater fulfillment by teaching them ways to manage stress in their personal and professional lives.
