Anniston's Dr. Stacy Haynes leads a staff into battle against spider veins. The treatment calls upon the services of the gentle Vbeam laser, which scares away spider veins in the nose ($200), ears ($225), chin ($250), cheeks ($325), forehead ($400), and neck ($500) with bursts of yellow light. In the three to six weeks between your treatments, veins are reabsorbed into the skin, leaving your epidermis looking as smooth as an ice rink that was sanded with fine-grit sandpaper.
The licensed massage therapists at Massage Advantage dote on visitors with a slew of custom massage techniques, including Swedish, prenatal, and deep tissue. Armed with warm blankets and a credo to respect patients' privacy, therapists begin each 30- or 60-minute session with a discussion on clients' specific aches and ailments. Therapists can also haul their equipment to office buildings for workplace chair massages that help reinvigorate fatigued employees or stressed-out water coolers during 5–15 minute stints. Each succession of kneads is designed to alleviate stress, muscles soreness, and various medical conditions, such as high blood pressure.
The board-certified dermatologists at Brookwood Dermatology diagnose epidermal issues during one-on-one consultations and then set out to maximize skin's natural beauty with custom-tailored treatments.

Indulge Salon and Day Spa offers a mélange of spa services within its sprawling and serene confines. Led by owner and movie-makeup artist Stacy Brewer McLarty, a skilled squad of professionals lies in wait to pamper patrons. The 60-minute microdermabrasion facial is a non-invasive yet effective method of getting up close and personal with pores. A trained technician unleashes an exfoliating treatment that collides with stale skin cells, which are shattered and swept away to reveal the ravishing, rosy glow inherent to the human face. Although this simple, nearly painless procedure generally requires no down time, some may experience short-term redness and flaking. Whether prepping for an important event or seeking improved aerodynamic flow during porpoise races, faces can find their heart's desire thanks to microdermabrasion.
