The licensed massage therapists and aestheticians at My Day Tan & Spa beckon bodies into a soothing oasis, where wall lamps line dark apricot walls and lead to private, dimly lit spa rooms. Deep-tissue kneads and fluid Swedish strokes dissipate stress caused from unresolved tickle fights, and aestheticians tackle surface problems with facials targeted to treat acne or aging. Four levels of tanning beds compete with Mystic spray-tan booths to give skin a sun-smacked glow. After their spa treatment, clients can peruse the spa?s boutique of purses, clothing, and lotions.
Beauty and technology blend at Belle Spas, where visitors are relaxed and refreshed with services for the entire body. Radio frequency fosters younger-looking faces, chests, and hands as a technician guides a sublative laser over skin. Noninvasive ultrasound, steam, and body wraps are designed to shrink stubborn fat deposits, and massages in modalities including Swedish and hot stone melt the stress and icicles hiding in muscles. Customers looking to prolong their newly soothed mood may procure supplements and skin serums at the Belle boutique.
Clean Canvas Laser?s technicians pulse beams from their Quanta Q-Plus C laser to rid patients of unwanted tattoos. The quick treatments are effective on a wide range of colors?even the typically stubborn green and blue pigments?and generally achieve total removal in 5?15 sessions.

Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
I find [glo therapeutics] to be the best skin line. [It is an] affordable product that actually gives results. It has a clean feel and gives a natural glow for all skin types. The glo minerals makeup line is also a natural compliment to your skin [and it maintains] a natural feel and look.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
I not only [take] pride in making my clients happy but also in giving them realistic results that [are] skillfully tailored to their own natural beauty.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
I have noticed almost everyone not using SPF sunscreen. It is extremely vital to our skin that we protect it from the sun's rays. Another mistake I've found is those who do put on SPF think it's protecting them all day. SPF needs to be reapplied every two hours, especially for those who [are] outside for work or pleasure and [those] who drive a lot. SPF should be applied to the face, neck, d?collet?, arms, and hands if [they are] exposed. Typically, our left side [of the] face, arms, and hands are the most exposed areas and tend to be more tanned as a result from driving. [They] also tend to [have] more unwanted skin conditions. Thus, I can't stress enough the importance of having your SPF. It also aids in [the] anti-aging of the skin.
