Smart Tan–certified managers oversee all the comings and goings at each Island Sun Tanning location as staff members help patrons shade shift with bronzing equipment and products by Devoted Creations and Designer Skin. UV beds cool skin with air-conditioning systems and calm the senses with aromatherapy mists. MP3-player docks increase the relaxation potential, allowing bodies to settle into the beds' contoured confines and listen to their favorite music or bedtime stories read by Morgan Freeman.
For patrons seeking sunless options, staffers utter secret passwords that open the doors of VersaSpa and Mystic Tan spray-tan booths, which leave bodies bronzed for up to seven days. Red-light-therapy sessions aim to firm and tone skin, and hydration stations combine steam, radiant heat, and liquid vitamins to extend the life of new tans.
When not reuniting bodies with their ideal shades of bronze, the caring crew has worked to fight hunger in the local community by collecting donated canned goods for Philabundance.
Led by Dr. Harmon C. Stein, the six physicians at Total Eye Care can handle almost any aspect of ocular care, from laser vision correction to eye muscle surgery for adults or children. Dr. Stein alone has performed more than 10,000 refractive procedures in his more than 25-year career and can personally attest to the benefits of LASIK surgery––he's had it himself. Of course, with better vision, patients might begin to notice pesky veins or wrinkles that never bothered them before. Luckily, Total Eye Care can handle those too: the doctors here are well trained in all sorts of cosmetic procedures, from Botox and skin tag removal, to permanent makeup, which can be custom-blended to match the patients hair, skin, or any hat permanently affixed to their head.
It's been almost 20 years since The Nail Club provided its first mani-pedi, and the intervening years have only made the spa's service more comprehensive and stylish. As the nail salon industry has evolved, so has the Club's collection of adornments, which now includes long-lasting gel polish and trend-conscious nail art. Other services focus as much on relaxation as they do on beauty. Reflexology massages, for instance, soothe tired soles, and spa pedicures include hot towel treatments to eliminate stress and melt off heavy wax boots. And, despite its name, The Nail Club offers more than mani-pedis?waxing services ensure bodies are as pampered as hands and feet.
Nails aren't the only things that pop with color at Cuticle Corner Nail & Spa. Spring-green walls greet patrons the moment they step inside, providing a fresh backdrop for floral bouquets, red-and-white gingham cushions, and row upon rainbow-hued row of neatly arranged polishes. As clients recline on plush pedicure thrones, nail technicians give their undivided attention to toenails and use hot stones to soothe aching feet. Fingers receive their own royal treatment at immaculately clean manicure stations and leave ready to show off their new colorful nails by shaking hands or playing peek-a-boo with everyone they meet.
Dr. Bruce Richman, who boasts more than 20 years of medical experience, approaches each patient's cosmetic needs with a technical as well as artistic eye. Before rejuvenating visitors' corporeal shells, MedEstics's specialists seek to educate prospective clients by hosting fact-based consultations, which can explain the treatments, the equipment, and the major differences between humans and mannequins. The center brims with modern med-spa technology, including crystal-free microdermabrasion devices and a ClearScan laser system designed to zap unwanted stubble.
The vivid violet walls at New Attitude Hair Design reflect the upbeat charm and feminine sophistication the salon staff brings to its work. Owner Meera’s passionate team of stylists, colorists, and waxing technicians take pride in crafting custom looks. The salon's forte is special-occasion updos; the stylists wind curly tendrils for prom, weave loose braids for beach weddings, and mold beehive dos for weddings held on honey farms.
