Eyes by India first opened its doors in Indiana to provide threading as an alternative to waxing. Threading is more precise than waxing and causes less pain, redness, and burning when removing unwanted fuzz. Now with nine locations in two states, Eyes by India’s staff of specialists completes more than 100 hours of training in threading and service etiquette before applying those skills to patrons’ faces at work and image-conscious teddy bears at home. During appointments, cotton thread twists over hair, tweaking hairlines and brow lines or removing all traces of fuzz on the neck, chin, or upper lip.
At the time Doctor Rotskoff graduated from Washington University, he was one of only 30 doctors in the country to hold dual degrees in medicine and dentistry. He went on to combine his specialty in oral maxillofacial surgery with his expertise in cosmetic surgery, and is considered an authority on facial reconstruction in addition to body contouring and laser skin rejuvenation. When he isn't lecturing to national and international audiences or authoring chapters for leading medical journals, Dr. Rotskoff joins Dr. Timothy Gillum, a board-certified surgeon specializing in both head and neck surgery and facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. Together, they oversee a staff of laser technicians who help patients discover less-invasive ways to turn back the clock. Wielding Syneron laser technology, they usher unwanted stubble off the body's map and help erase signs of aging with microdermabrasion, photofacial treatments, and ReFirme skin tightening. Renew Cosmetic Spa offers complimentary consultations to all prospective patients, encouraging them to visit the center, learn about the treatments from a specialist, and claim a favorite chair in the waiting room.
Using top-notch equipment, Larry Paul Tanning Spa bronzes bodies of all shapes, sizes, and hues.

The VersaSpa mist swarms bodies in a private, heated booth with a built-in drying system, and the system includes a postspray superhydrating treatment to lock in healthy glow and fruit flavors.
As its tropical name makes clear, Caribbean Mist Tanning Spa specializes in bronzing bodies with standup beds and UV-free airbrush spray tans.

The stylists at Pin Up Hair Salon don’t want to transform their clients in quiet. They want to engage their clients and know what look they desire before cutting off split ends, adding color, or creating a permanent wave. They also like to educate their clients on how to get their desired look at home.
In every private tanning room at Sun Spot, a shelf and hangers ensconce clothes and satchels. Shoes flop to the floor next to comfortable seating, slipping from the feet of patrons adjusting the volume on personal AM/FM stereos-CD players before the UV bed coaxes out melanin. The UV beds range across six levels of tanning power and sport adjustable body fans so guests can stay cool or find an excuse to redesign the north wing of a house of cards. A parade of clients wanders from VersaSpa booths, which darken skin with a bronzing elixir infused with custom color and moisturizer designed to hide the effects of aging. Slipping out past swaying bamboo plants, visitors pass beneath infrared slimming machines and glass shelves that brim with a rainbow of sun-luring lotions from Norvell and Devoted Creations.
