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.
With a decade of experience, owner and master aesthetician Holly Adams leads an expert staff of Aveda specialists who treat clients to purifying facials and body treatments at Azalea Aveda Day Spa and Salon. After an initial skin analysis, specialists begin the Aveda Elemental Nature facial by cleansing skin of excess oils and coating faces in a nourishing treatment mask. The pampering continues with a gentle massage before a Green Science plant peel strips away blemishes with a 30 percent glycolic-acid solution that helps to prevent redness, irritation, and spontaneous combustion. Alternatively, aestheticians swaddle frames with a dry wrap imbued with essences of rosemary and peppermint to awaken senses. While clients lounge in mummified bliss, nimble hands massage scalps and worn-out feet.
Beaches Tanning Center's arsenal of newly updated tanning beds and spray-tan booths unveils gateways to sun-kissed skin.

Clients can go UV-free in warm Mystic Tan chambers, where an oscillating nozzle evenly coats skin with a customized cocktail of bronzing color.
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).
Spa Trouve derives its name from the French word for “found,” which hints at the brand-new self-image visitors to this med spa may discover. The staff physicians and technicians use their deft experienced hands to perform skin-resurfacing and rejuvenation treatments, which stave off signs of age, scarring, and stubborn “Kick Me” post-it notes. They perform laser-based hair-removal and skin-rejuvenation treatments with Syneron elos Plus machines, radio frequency–based skin treatments with eMatrix, and vibration-based exfoliation with Vibraderm. Other skilled experts perform dermal-filler injections and cosmetic surgical procedures. Spa Trouve’s master aestheticians work with clients to develop customized skincare regimens using products such as SkinCeuticals, organic Lira Cosmeceuticals, SkinMedica, Obagi, and jane iredale mineral makeup.

When it comes to adding length, the salon also offers nine different methods of hair-extension application and provides free consultations to clients in order to determine the bonding technique that best suits their budget and extension needs.
