Cutting Crew's aestheticians and stylists tap into their bountiful reserves of beautifying knowledge to outfit clients with attention-grabbing radiance. A one-hour microdermabrasion spa facial alleviates faces of dead skin cells, which may lead to skin looking younger and customers being carded while trying to get into PG-13 movies. A set of mini lash extensions lures admiring looks from onlookers and eliminates the need for customers to dip their lashes in neighborhood tar pits. For thicker lashes, this Groupon can be applied toward the cost of a full set (an additional $75). Cutting Crew applies professional salon products specified to each individual's needs, including brands such as Redken, Nioxin, and Pureology.
The licensed massage therapists at Massage Alaska vaporize stress with a menu of both soothing and rehabilitative body treatments acted out within a powder-blue room. The list of modalities extends from basic relaxation massage to more intense deep- tissue massage and myofascial release. Natural aids such as hot stones, warm canes of bamboo, and badgers with velvet gloves suffuse the homey studio with the serenity of the forest. Nail techs also groom men’s and women's fingers and toes, evincing Massage Alaska's dedication to hygiene by using disposable implements.
The licensed, board-certified doctors at Alaska Vein Care vanquish spider veins and enlarged, bulging varicose veins with FDA-approved treatments. Injections of a sclerosing agent seal the interior lining of spider veins, diminishing their appearance by blocking blood flow. Treatments for varicose veins include EVLT treatments to restore normal circulation, micro-phlebectomy procedures to remove looped veins, and sclerotherapy, which closes vein walls.
Doctor of Chiropractic Gerald Lizer prides himself on his "whole person approach" to caring for patients. Because many conditions are interconnected, he and the staff at Eagle River Chiropractic tailor different treatments to each patient. For example, stress may lead to weight loss, which may exasperate back pain—and the practice's professionals can help patients reduce stress in a New Reality program, address weight loss in a fat-burning workshop, and ease aches with chiropractic services.

Staff members are skilled in a wide array of beautification techniques as well, including facials, tanning, and waxing, and offer cutting-edge haircare with the aid of Redken and Pureology products.
