Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. These friendly automatons facilitate everything from hydro massages and oxygen therapy to spray tanning and luminous facials, as well as Planet Beach's signature take on tantastic UV therapy. Each machine is designed for a specific service, which makes it the ultimate expert and keeps it from developing the ability to cry. Advanced spa services, such as hydro-derma fusion, sauna time, hydro massage ($40 per session), and luminous facials ($40 per session) provide opportunities for sweating, moisturizing, and photoskinthesis.
From his seven offices, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Christopher Ewanowski and his knowledgeable staff help restore epidermises with cosmetic, medical, and surgical skin treatments. With a stable of seven lasers, including the Candela GentleLase, Palomar StarLux IPL, and the 2,940-nanometer Whisper, Suncoast?s trained technicians rid skin of unwanted hair, sun damage, broken blood vessels, and tattoos of broken blood vessels. For more invasive procedures, including eyelid-lifting blepharoplasty and Dr. Ewanowski's specialty, the cancer-ridding Mohs micrographic surgery, the doctor treats clients in the in-office surgical suite. Suncoast?s resident aesthetician pampers with medical-grade spa services, using products from such skincare brands as SkinMedica, Av?ne, and glo.
La' Chic Salon and Spa’s soaring vaulted ceilings slide down to sleek bamboo flooring, over which an ensemble of nail technicians, stylists, and aestheticians buzz back and forth across as they beautify bodies from tip to tip. The spa’s glossy granite countertops gleam with the reflections of aestheticians in motion as they administer soothing spa treatments, lavishing visages in a relaxation-inducing cucumber facial and treating paws to a deluxe spa pedicure's mint sea scrub. Experienced hair gurus employ Redken and Pureology products to perform strand-reviving feats with salon services such as partial foils, special-occasion styling, and sculpting coifs into David.
Clients often linger at the Mens Dept. Barbershop, even well after their haircuts and shaves come to a close. The shop functions much like a clubhouse for grown-ups, with dart boards, a pool table, and leather couches set in front of an HD TV. The staff keeps beer on tap, or it can mix up root beer floats for younger visitors (or the young at heart). Indeed, the barbershop serves as an ideal place to watch a game or play some cards, but the most important events still happen at its 10 barber chairs, which are split into two separate rooms and parallel dimensions. For a signature cut, barbers shampoo and massage the scalp before cutting hair and shaving the neckline for good measure—complete with a hot-towel treatment to melt away any tension. The team's expertise in getting rid of hair also extends to four levels of shaving services as well as facial and body waxing.
Continuing an enterprise as old as the historical 1950s building it calls home, Salon 314's multifaceted stylists add drama to tresses with custom haircuts and non-ammonia coloring services. The salon's space blends modern and retro décor and washes guests in neutral colors as they enter, immediately followed by staffers offering to wash palates in complimentary beverages, such as tea, coffee, and soda. Stylists begin appointments with verbal consultations, and then employ their own special techniques as they color and sculpt a variety of hair types into 'dos suited to clients' tastes and apply bleach highlights with foil to turn hair into landing beacons for tossed hats and migrating butterflies.
