Hollywood Tans' fleet of UV and spray-tanning booths gild epidermises with a host of high-tech amenities. The HT60 machine builds up a base tan in three–four sessions and catches most stray UVB rays, a process which prevents the skin from exfoliating and loosing its color too soon. Custom-airbrushed and Mystic spray-tan options bypass UV rays like a tree on a hunger strike, and customizable cartridges allow clients to choose their ideal color for a natural tan that lasts up to a week. The full-service salons are open seven days a week and also offer waxing, and makeup application.

Specializing in noninvasive fat-loss treatments, the experts at Collegeville Medical Weight Loss Center offer multiple methods to help clients achieve the body they're aiming for. Their central treatment, Laser-Like Lipo, is fast and pain free. During the procedure, a cold laser light is applied directly to the skin, which causes fat cells to open up and release their contents before the body naturally disposes of them. Each session is about 7 to 14 minutes long and a full cycle of treatments takes about three to six weeks. The Collegeville center also offers nutritional counseling, whole body vibration, and HVS detox, which helps remove toxins from the body and lures away any poisonous snakes that may have been nesting in the hair.
