Bella Derma Medspa's technicians have outfitted their skincare facility with many modern beauty technologies that keep skin smooth and firm. These include both elōs and Syneron eMax systems, each of which is powered by radio-frequency energy, and which together attack everything from excess body hair to vascular lesions. Familiar cosmetic injectables such as Botox and Juvéderm target fine lines in the face, and Carbossi therapy, another injected treatment, infuses skin with carbon dioxide to tighten cells and stimulate photosynthesis in the forehead.

Before a massage or facial at Red Carpet Salon and Spa, clients fill out a consultation card that provides detailed insight on their specific therapeutic or skincare needs. This allows the massage therapist or aesthetician to develop a personalized treatment plan. After the treatment, the spa pro sits down with clients and dishes tips on how they can improve their overall health and well being outside the spa, in their everyday life, on their horse, atop an inflatable tube, in a horse water park. Aside from massage and facial treatments, the salon specializes in Redken haircare services, which are performed in a spacious studio among freestanding salon stations and a reflective floor of black tiles.
When Viva Vitamins’ cofounders decided to join forces in 1996, it was a symbiotic partnership. One brought his experience as a wellness counselor, and the other brought hers as a fitness and nutrition guru. The two backgrounds formed a well-rounded foundation for their next venture—a line of alternative health products. Today, their extensive selection of athletic supplements, minerals, herbs, and multivitamins is endorsed by a team of doctors and available at stores in 19 states. A staff of certified dietary supplement specialists advises customers on what may be needed now and in the future to ensure your bodies continued well-being, including many products featured on Dr. Oz.
With 19 locations conveniently sprinkled throughout the Atlanta area, Solar Dimensions helps clients get beach-ready regardless of their proximity to the shore. Each location features a fleet of UV tanning beds of varying brightness, all waiting to sun-kiss skin in 10–20 minutes and comfort clients with a built-in cooling apparatus or complimentary snuggles from a nearby penguin. Custom airbrush-tanning treatments or automated VersaSpa and MyMyst sunless-tanning sessions forgo light exposure and instead tone complexions with tinted mists that materialize in four to eight hours and last for several days. Both tanning solutions quench skin with aloe vera before tinting it a natural shade ranging from light almond to lifeguard. The trained staff can also hone body shape with infrared body wraps and VacuStep treatments, and brighten smiles with teeth whitening, helping to boost confidence before bodies hit the pool.
As the strains of classical music flutter through a soft-green spa space, customers lounge in throne-like pedicure chairs and sip complimentary champagne and other drinks. An Asian--inspired philosophy of understated elegance and meticulous service suffuses Lady Sun, which, though primarily devoted to nailcare, also treats patrons to facials, massages, and waxing. Strict sanitation standards result in hospital-grade sterilizing equipment and bacteria-hostile hand and foot baths, preventing finger puppets from catching cold.
