Medical weight-loss programs, permanent makeup, and ... yoga? It might seem like an unlikely combination, but these services and more are all offered at Dermedics. Here, skilled medical and aesthetics experts help clients feel better, inside and out. Professional skin care treatments, such as exfoliating microdermabrasion and cleansing facials, leave complexions glowing, while body-contouring technology and customized weight-loss plans help reduce inches. Meanwhile, a private yoga studio welcomes clients seeking to harmonize their minds with their freshly refurbished and sponge-painted exteriors.
The trained staff at La Bella Salon combine classic beauty rituals, such as manicures and waxing, with modern aesthetic techniques, such as laser hair removal for every skin shade. Not far from the glimmer of an onsite jewelry shop, trained stylists sculpt flattering 'dos with Biolage and Wella products, and aestheticians personalize facials to each forehead crease. Massage therapists drain stress reserves with soothing strokes and ensure that their craft lives on by teaching massage-instruction programs and hiring monks to transcribe their cosmetic handbook word by word.
The depilation artists at Brow Art 23's boutique produce carefully sculpted eyebrows and perform precision threading and waxing services. During their signature eyebrow-threading services, the boutique's technicians wield two threads over fuzzy body surfaces to pull out fine hairs or sculpt fuzz into neat shapes quickly and effortlessly. Their arsenal of eyebrow-pampering products also includes angled eyebrow brushes, stencils, and makeup to glam up bland brows and keep new looks fresh at home. Threading can also be done on other parts of the body besides the face, leaving any area smooth or remaining hair formed into the name Denise. The boutique also offers henna tattoos and eyelash extensions, rounding out its suite of beautifying services.
At Mimi's Ionic Foot Detox & Gift Shop, specialists work to boost overall health and improve clients' appearances with holistic treatments. During one of the company's signature offerings—the ionic foot detox treatment—visitors step into a footbath inundated with positively charged ions, which are intended to extract heavy metals and other toxins from the body. According to the company's website, the procedure can assuage issues such as joint pain, allergies, and fatigue. The center's specialists also perform reflexology treatments, during which they massage specific points on the feet to stimulate systems throughout the body. Visitors can also shop at an onsite boutique stocked with hand-painted boxes, wood carvings, knitted hats and gloves, and other gifts.

A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas?its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries?Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
