For almost 20 years, Vickie Sanders has gussied up her clients by applying natural pigment to the skin’s dermal layer, creating the effect of permanent makeup. Housed within a hygienic and comfortable dental office, she customizes each procedure to the client’s desired look, enhancing eyes with neat or purposefully “smudged” liner and beautifying lips with a range of colors. In addition to her makeup procedures, which can shave time off morning routines, she caters to mastectomy patients by specializing in areola-coloring services.
Truessentials owner Michelle Truman improves her clients’ overall well-being through a comprehensive range of wellness techniques and classes. She uses essential oils culled from flowers, trees, and trees’ grandparents to melt away stress, and the gentle din of tuning forks to help relieve bodily aches. Michelle also helps clients conjure a spa experience at home by teaching classes on the use of tuning forks and blending essential oils. A complete resource for wellness services, the nature-focused oasis also offers colored-light therapy with meditation, instructional sessions with a raw-foods chef, classes that teach natural methods for pregnancy and childbirth, and teeth-whitening services. Inside Truessentials’ facility, sage-green hues calm clients, a wall of mirrors offers ample space for reflection, and a curtained-off area provides privacy during sessions.
Hibiscus Day Spa?s body-treatment menu looks good enough to eat: the pumpkin body souffl? softens skin with enzymes, and the Ultimate Chocolate Indulgence tantalizes the senses with a cocoa scrub and chocolate-butter massage. Though not as epicurean, Hibiscus?s other spa treatments are similarly luxuriant. The dual massage recruits two therapists to work on a client?s muscular tension, and a Caribbean Queen facial slathers skin with an aromatic blend of peptides and hydrators. Specialty treatments for expectant mothers and brides-to-be fill out the selection, as well as teen services; mini facials help instill healthy skincare habits and massages tackle high-school sports injuries and tension from hanging on a flagpole by your underwear.
For maintenance less aesthetic and more energetic, Hibiscus also boasts an onsite health and wellness center. Here, clients can look to traditional Chinese healing therapies such as sliding-scale acupuncture and reiki energy balancing. Custom nutritional counseling helps participants embrace long-term healthful eating habits.
Dr. Sarika Patel revamps the smiles of her patients from an office equipped with the latest technologies, including digital x-rays and intraoral cameras. She employs computerized shading to perfectly match the color of natural teeth for restorations and wields a Biolase soft-tissue laser to destroy the bacteria that gathers in gum pockets. When it comes to children, however, Dr. Patel switches to an arsenal of a different kind: she soothes young nerves with stickers and rewards exceptional behavior with small gifts. No matter the age of her patient, she listens carefully to their concerns and performs procedures as gently as a parent stealing the tooth-fairy money out from under a child’s pillow.
Orthodontia has come a long way from the crude metal bands and catgut used in some of the earliest teeth-straightening systems, and the team at Dentalville fully takes advantage of modern technology. Beyond traditional braces, the doctors straighten teeth with both fixed and removable appliances. Three types of clear braces, such as Invisalign and Essix, adjust teeth while remaining virtually invisible. Similarly, Incognito braces hide on the back of the teeth, straightening them without cutting your lips while you smile or head butt a wall. Patients whose orthodontia has to show itself can expedite the process by up to 40% with SureSmile and up to four times with Wilckodontics braces.
