At Renew You Medical Spa and Laser Therapy, advanced technology coincides with practiced human precision. Using Dermaware skin care products, board-certified physicians and licensed aestheticians harness the beautifying capacity of pulsed light to perform many of their treatments, which range from blemish-clearing skin-rejuvenation sessions to laser hair removal. They cast different IPL beams over legs to keep unwanted veins from branching out further, thus necessitating the growth of a second heart in your knee. Their nonlaser services include facials and exfoliating rounds of microdermabrasion, which soften fine lines and encourage collagen production for firmer features.
The staff informs clients about their treatment options with free consultations, and often schedules appointments the same day. For aftercare and general maintenance, they keep Neocutis skin products on hand.
Working out of Precision Ink tattoo shop, the artists at Precision Ink Permanent Makeup enhance natural beauty with professional SofTap pigments. Applied by hand, the technique creates enduring color on eyebrows, lips, and around eyes and eyelashes, resulting in shorter morning-makeup routines and ensuring faces look great even while sleepwalking.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles. Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Each location offers the regenerative properties of various varieties of massage that make a soul vessel feel springtime fresh. Of your 90-minute massage session, 5 minutes are set aside before and after for dressing time and a consultation with your therapist to ensure your massage is customized for you.
A zebra-print canvas painted with the words “To Dye For” bedecks the salon walls of Angel Melito’s hair suite with the same name. Beneath its pink-and-white stripes, clients receive traditional cuts, color, and updos using various salon-trusted products from the likes of Sudzz. Alternatively, they can elect for a modern straightening treatment or a text-message breakup with old split ends.
At Massaging Palms, a licensed massage therapist quells aches, pains, and stress with calming bodywork treatments. Clients can kick back and relax as the therapist performs Swedish massages, which help foster calmness and feelings of well-being, or deep-tissue massages, which target chronic pain and muscle tension. In addition to these two therapies, the therapist offers prenatal massages for expectant mothers, sports massages for those with active lifestyles, and neuromuscular massages for those suffering from soft-tissue injuries.
