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.
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.
The staff members of Tan USA Nashville pride themselves on taking care of their equipment, a lineup that includes five types of lie-down and standup tanning beds, as well as a Mystic Tan booth. Clients can purchase monthly packages or tanning credits, the latter of which can be used toward any bed without upgrade fees. To amplify the beds' effects, to improve tans, Tan USA supplies tanning lotions and premade stories about how much fun you had at the beach.
Stocked with four tiers of UV tanning beds alongside Norvell airbrush-tanning systems, House of Tans' meticulously clean facility invites clients to build bronzed glows for beach-ready complexions or special occasions. UV beds upgrade classic encapsulating designs with perks such as audio systems, cooling fans, and neck and shoulder reflectors that beam rays toward hard-to-reach spots. The salon?s retinue of trained airbrush technicians also mists patrons in a bronzer-enhanced Norvell tanning spray that inspires a natural-looking golden hue over 24 hours, conferring up to seven days of radiant skin that might taste like a California golden raisin. The salon also offers patrons access to a supply of Twilight Teeth whitening kits, which use UV rays to brighten smiles that contrast strongly with well-tanned skin tones, and Fit body wraps, which may burn up to 1,500 calories per session.
Advanced White Teeth Whitening can lighten teeth up to 12 shades whiter in the length of time it takes to rest your feet from a day of shopping. As clients recline at the Advanced White Teeth Whitening station inside The Oaks Mall, whitening techs apply a peroxide gel to their teeth, then illuminate them with an LED lamp. The gel and lamp work together to lighten stains, leaving guests with a brighter, whiter smile. In addition to on-location whitening, customers can also opt to continue the whitening process at home with whitening kits and pens.
