Smooth Exposure's medical microdermabrasion services help clients smooth fine lines and wrinkles while treating blackheads and signs of aging. An applicator sweeps across the skin to clear away the top layer of cells and fade surface imperfections to reveal younger skin. The procedure brightens skin's tone and evens its texture.

The same advanced technology contributes to much of Smooth Exposure's menu. From laser hair-removal sessions to treatments for sun damage, age spots, and acne, their offerings take advantage of IPL tools to leave the skin silky and refreshed. The staff also administers facials, chemical peels, spray tans, and specialized injections, which include energy-lifting B12 shots and dermal fillers such as Botox and Restylane.

Organic Sugaring Center's hair-removal paste is so organic, you could eat it: it's made from just sugar, lemon, and water. This recipe makes the process gentler on skin, as does the paste's ability to be applied at body temperature. Plus, the sugar adheres only to hair, not live skin cells, which can make sugaring less painful than other forms of hair removal, such as waxing or vacuuming it away. What's more, the paste can exfoliate dry, dead cells, and since it's water-soluble, any residue is easily cleaned from the skin. Though Organic Sugaring Center's aestheticians perform full-body treatments for both men and women, they specialize in Brazilians, which can be done in a variety of fun shapes, and completely customized to suit the client's needs.

When looking for ways to pamper and indulge their clients, the aestheticians of Sugaring House draw inspiration from time-honored treatments. They remove unwanted hair by either waxing patches away or by using centuries-old sugaring techniques to naturally leave the skin smooth and stubble-free. Using organic skincare products whenever possible, the aestheticians also perform customized facial treatments intended to even out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, exfoliate away impurities, and reduce the signs of enlarged pores. Sugaring House also offers massage appointments, and the therapists can alleviate muscle aches by using flowing Swedish techniques, focused deep-tissue pressure, or a combination of Swedish strokes and assisted yoga stretches.

The Sugaring House is staffed by a licensed aesthetician and technicians well versed in the art of sugar waxing. This hair-removal procedure favors Sugaring House's own sugar paste over wax, which is used to remove body hair while producing less irritation than other methods. The staff services both men and women with hair removal treatments for the full body; they also offer specialty shape-waxing for the bikini area, which yields designs such as landing strips, triangles, and custom lettering. The team also offers anti-aging and acne facials, and the space sets a relaxing tone for the experience with soft-lit private rooms adorned with flowers and plush treatments beds.

As they pass under a crystal-dripped chandelier and into private treatment rooms, guests will discover that the staff members who perform each service mirror the coziness of their confines. The spa’s specialties include deep-cleansing facials, massage, and body wraps that battle cellulite and unwanted inches. Staff members also use electrolysis and laser hair removal to permanently oust unwanted fuzz from the body, as well as from sheep who plan to retire to the Caribbean.

Just because each service at TLC Medispa relies on laser energy, that doesn't mean the center's equipment isn't versatile. That's because the center uses the Palomar StarLux 500 and Cynosure Elite laser systems, a practice which means the staff of certified laser technicians can treat any skin type, and the newer Palomar Vectus for quicker treatments.

During laser hair-removal treatments, techs aim these machines' intense beams of light at hairs to seal off the blood vessels that feed the follicles, thereby permanently preventing regrowth. The technicians also use lasers to clear away wrinkles, scars, acne, pigmentation, and spider veins. Because TLC Medispa's staff includes board-certified doctors, clients can also ascertain whether stethoscopes can detect disloyalty in pets.
