Ancient people in ancient times got perfect ancient tans while standing up because lying on the ground for bronzing purposes had not yet been attempted. Hollywood Tans' friendly staff takes a page out of the history books by implementing highly hygienic vertical tanning to deliver even, 360-degree coloration without the stress of bulb marks and pressure points one gets from horizontal tanning beds. If you opt for the month of unlimited tanning (up to a $110 value), your outside will be privy to the state-of-the-art stand-up booths, which instill pleasing hues all over your body in no more than 11 minutes. Each Hollywood Tans location hosts around 15 booths, all equipped with a built-in audio system, which is a significant upgrade from old-school booths with built-in Abe Vigodas.
At the tender age of 13, Patty Conrad picked up a pair of scissors and began snipping away at unwanted hair until a new 'do was born. That experience blossomed into a passion and career as a master barber/instructor and owner of T'Zers Hair Gallery. She oversees stylists equally adept at regular and razor cuts, highlights, and chemical straightening treatments. The staff also give attention to digits during mani-pedis that end with nails covered in the clients' choice of nail polish hue or emoticon stickers.
Drs. Matthew Neuhaus and Jason R. Knox, both board-certified podiatrists and fellows of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, lead a friendly team in treating a variety of foot ailments, such as orthopedic problems and symptoms of the skin, nail, and dancing variety.

Believing that informed patients are better able to make decisions about their health, the doctors stock their website with valuable information, including a regularly updated blog and a cache of videos, on a host of foot concerns and the treatment options available for them.
Dermea Laser Skin Care is not a spa. It’s not a salon. And it’s definitely not one of those places where they make mediocre burgers but people still go because the servers pretend to be rude to you. But it is the aesthetics branch of Get Well Clinics, which means it relies on medical-grade equipment and procedures to remove body hair and refresh the skin. One such piece of equipment is the LightSheer diode laser system, a popular machine that can remove hair from all six types of skin on the Fitzpatrick scale. Another is the microdermabrasion machine, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles, acne, and scars, especially when it’s coupled with the alpha-hydroxy acids of the clinic’s glycolic peels.
