Voted Best Hair Removal Center in the Daily Herald's 2011 Best of Utah County awards, Get Waxed specializes in the most intricate of waxing services—the Brazilian. Though this treatment is their marquee service, they do perform thorough body and facial waxing services for women, men, and frayed velcro shoes. The adroit aestheticians supplement follicle eviction services with a range of beauty and body-care treatments, including facials, chemical peels, massage therapy, and spray tanning. They are also not shy about primping intimate areas—The Vajazzle decorates a certain region of a woman’s body in sparkly accoutrements, and The Betty recolors hair in that same region.

Next, equally indulge your toes with a pedicure, softening stubborn calluses and smoothing out shoe-worn soles. Groupon holders are also entitled to a facial, allowing them to enjoy the relaxing and aromatic advantages of a professional full-face restoration without having to trade mugs with Nicholas Cage.
Armed with a low-level laser, Dr. Adam Arp treats both spine and skin ailments at Total Family Wellness. The device's beams have the power to balance a teeter-tottering nervous system as well as fight wart viruses and acne bacteria lurking in the epidermis.
Seasons Salon and Day Spa's pampering staff indulge clients with a mélange of services that relax and tone bodies amid candlelight and muted earth tones. From salon treatments that sculpt and maintain chic coiffures to mani-pedis that primp nails and soften skin, a grab bag of beautification prepares clients for nights on the town and days spent standing still in a wax museum. Extravagant spa packages, such as the Little Black Dress, draw from a menu of massages and skin treatments to smooth away cellulite, burn calories, and revivify sagging visages with collagen treatments.
Experienced instructors also kick weight loss into high gear with fitness classes⎯ranging from yoga to Zumba⎯held within an expansive hardwood studio. Private tanning rooms sport draped ceilings and ambient lighting, gilding bodies in an atmosphere that's more relaxing than a cruise ship filled with down pillows.
Aesthetic Image keeps skin smooth and strand free from tip to tail with waxing services suited to every inch of the bristle-covered body. Follicle-burdened females can entrust their most sensitive areas to the skilled, hairless hands of a licensed aesthetician, who can administer the Brazilian wax in only 15–20 minutes. Unlike other cold-hearted salons that rely on duct tape and insults to get hair to vacate the premises, Aesthetic Image’s stubble slayers take time to ensure comfort and minimize follicle flare-ups during the wax, concluding with a designer postwaxing lotion that gently shushes skin back to deep, sleek, sleep (a pretreatment numbing lotion is available for $10).
