The doctors and staff at Paradise Antiaging Medspa give Father Time the brushoff with a selection of pampering and revivifying procedures. Skin treatments such as HydraFacials and chemical peels can beautify mugs for weddings and passport selfies, while Botox and dermal fillers erase fine lines and wrinkles. Acupuncture, massage services, and meditation are available for those seeking relaxation, detoxification, or an increase in spiritual wellbeing.
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.

Joseph Kepko, medical director of Bella Body Zerona, oversees laser specialists who perform Zerona treatments and nothing else. Before each treatment, the technicians sit down with patients and develop personalized treatment plans. Then, they aim lasers at zones with excess adipose tissue and turn solid fat into liquid fat. This can result in inch loss, which can last as long as a diamond when paired with diet and exercise.
Some artists use a brush and canvas, some a violin. Artisan Hair By Oanh uses scissors and a comb to craft strands into brilliant works of art. Expert stylists can engineer a range of styles—everything from a classic wave to a modern pixie cut. They also have a flair for color and add sun-kissed highlights or eye-catching ombre or balayage color to tresses. Clients may also request one of Oanh's specialty keratin treatments to straighten and fortify hair.
Like building a home, losing weight involves the interlocking of several pieces. The weight-loss architects at Physicians Weight Control build healthy physiques upon four pillars. Diet plans personalized to the client’s lifestyle control intake of nutrients and fat, fueling the clinic's aerobic-exercise plans. The last two pillars—appetite suppressants and vitamin supplements—combine to keep energy levels up and re-create the rush of swallowing a candy bar whole once the client starts eating smaller meals.
