Even before taking their place on the massage table or in a heated pedicure chair, customers who walk into Elite Salon & Day Spa have a sense of the luxurious relaxation they can expect. They're greeted with complimentary beverages before being ushered into softly lit private rooms where candles flicker, and stress is submerged under a wash of relaxing music. Among other services, aestheticians improve skin with facials that use Repêchage products, a seaweed-based line manufactured in the United States. For those who need a getaway from family responsibilities or a stressful job turning the sun on and off every day, spa packages sequester guests in serenity for three to seven hours.
A facial ($65–$85 value) from Seventh Wonder Day Spa restores the integrity of the most identifiable body part, flushing out accumulated makeup, freeloading skin cells, and partially hydrogenated oils. Prettify your punim with Seventh Wonder's Deep-Cleansing Treatment (which includes a skin analysis, exfoliation, extraction, massage, and mask), an organic rejuvenating Diamond Facial, or an anti-aging 24K Gold Treatment (which uses pure gold, plant extracts, and essential oils to revitalize tired skin). This Groupon may also be used for one of Seventh Wonder's hour-long massages ($70–$85 value), including the Swedish relaxation massage, therapeutic massage, pre-natal massage, aromatherapy massage, or deep-tissue massage, but cannot be used toward hot-stone or couple's massage.
Dr. Franklin M. Rios and his well-trained staff preserve smiles and improve oral health in a comfortable setting. During the comprehensive exam, sterilized instruments don monocles and detective caps to uncover signs of decay and gum disease, and x-rays help reveal lurking subsurface dental distress. Dr. Rios personally consults with patients to formulate individualized cosmetic dentistry plans, which illuminate enamel with custom-fit trays and two-week supplies of Opalescence whitening gel. In Cypress Point Family Dentistry's relaxing waiting room, bright lights illuminate the room and natural light pours onto armchairs with the radiance of the tooth fairy's halo.
A member of the American Dental Association and an Invisalign general provider, Dr. Rick K. Harrison helms a team of hygienists who maintain mouth ivories in patients as young as 3 years old. The office's oral-health vanguards dispense services covering all phases of dentistry, including preventive, restorative, and cosmetic procedures such as Zoom! whitening and cementing diamonds to teeth. Harrison also sees to clients' comfort through dental technologies ranging from digital x-rays—which capture sharper resolution with less radiation than traditional x-rays—to oral-cancer screenings that require only a rinse and a special light. An information page helps to put patients at ease, and downloadable new-patient forms help visits to go faster.
