Southern Exposure's eclectic selection of merchandise embodies both literal and figurative interpretations of the term "bling." Glittering pieces of jewelry by brands such as John Wind and La Hola decorate wrists and earlobes with both modern and vintage accessories. Rhinestoned patterns coat iPhone and iPad cases to personalize personal electronics, and the colorful shapes and designs on loaves of Primal Elements soap bring interior decorating themes into bathroom territory. Patrons can also gild their physical forms with spray-tanning or teeth-whitening treatments at Southern Exposure's in-house beauty salon. The boutique also plays host to events such as tailgate parties and meet and greets with Santa Claus, where children can put in requests or lodge complaints about last year's gifts.
Appearances count inside the office of Dr. Elizabeth Patino. In addition to administering Botox injections and other cosmetic procedures, Dr. Patino provides dental care to a range of ages. Her detail-orientated dental evaluations include taking x-rays to probe deeper dental issues, a meticulous oral-cancer screening, and a thorough study of each client's bite. Dr. Patino and her team then take this information and create a custom treatment plan that focuses on restoring and refreshing smiles with regular cleanings, root canals, and teeth-whitening treatments.
To draw more attention to newly restored smiles, Dr. Patino offers Botox. Her understanding of the anatomy of the face and neck allows her to objectively analyze one's facial expressions before smoothing wrinkles.
Once clients are comfortably ensconced in the dentist's chair, the oral exam begins. One of Bartram Family Dental Care, The Dentist Place, or Baymeadows Junction Dental Care's doctors and their fellow toothsperts will check each individual incisor, cuspid, bicuspid, and molar for chips, cracks, staining, and loitering Minnesota Twins, ensuring that enamel bones are sound for biting, and gums and soft tissues will be inspected for any signs of periodontal disease. The x-ray battery exposes the roots and inner sanctums of oral stalagmites to reveal any soft spots, problem areas, or cavities. When your mouth checks out as mammalian and your teeth are cleared for take-off, the professional teeth cleaning begins. An expert cleaning removes all the buildup and surface staining that regular brushing and flossing can't—hardened tartar, hard-to-reach plaque, and bacterial graffiti along the gum line.
Tan USA bronzes bodies using five levels of UV tanning beds and smooth and even UV-free tanning options. A session in an Ultra, Turbo, or Mega bed darkens skeleton holders in 15 minutes using high-quality RUVA lamps. The tanning vessels provide enough light to achieve immediate results or peruse a history textbook about the Bronze Age. Patrons can sun-smooch their skin while eschewing UV with the spray-tanning technologies of the Mystic tanning booth, which allows for a customized browning in three distinct levels.
The skincare experts at Emerge specialize in nonsurgical treatments that combat signs of aging and skin damage.

Emerge also offers more spa-oriented treatments including microdermabrasion and facials powered by anti-aging skincare lines such as Image Skincare and Vivité.
As both a dentist and a board-certified oral, maxillofacial, and general cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Charles Graper has the knowledge and experience to provide comprehensive care for his patients' oral-health and aesthetic needs. Graper Facial Institute boasts six locations in Georgia and northern Florida, where Dr. Graper performs services ranging from face-lifts and liposuction to dental implants and Invisalign orthodontic treatments. He and his team can also diminish fine lines and acne scars with an ultra-pulse carbon-dioxide laser, or use a fat-transfer contouring procedure to correct deep furrows, wrinkles, or indentations from post-race naps on burlap sacks.
Dentist Patti Webb, an erstwhile chemistry teacher and plant pathologist, found the independent science of dentistry compelling enough to switch careers and return to school. She began tending to teeth at Gentle Dental Care just after graduating, and soon took over the practice. Now, 20 years later, she is still at the helm, alongside two of her sons, Dr. Austin Webb and Dr. Jordan Webb.
The trio of mouth maestros assesses overall oral health, fills in cavities, and fits crowns. In addition to general dentistry, the team delves into cosmetic dentistry with implants, Invisalign teeth-straightening, and teeth-whitening treatments that employ custom trays and gel to brighten smiles until their owners can grin their way through dark corridors.
