Complexion Perfection’s licensed aesthetician Brianne Whitley keeps it simple. Her skincare treatments fall into two categories: facials and chemical peels. A selection of four facials is designed to combat specific complexion issues, while nine different chemical peels employ more aggressive blemish-fighting formulas still gentle enough for use on patients with rosacea, dry skin, or melodramatic noses.
Your month of tanning gets you unlimited access to Caribbean Sun's clean and comfortable base beds (you may upgrade to another bed model for an additional $2–$9.) A skin-savvy staff member will talk to you about your complexion and color-changing goals before helping you develop the ideal skin-shading routine. If you're allergic to artificial sun, one of Caribbean Sun's UV-free spray tans can give you a fresh-off-the-beach golden glow without causing sneezing or busy eyes. A certified tanning technician will administer the pigmentally potent spray using a top-notch Norvell system, and after just one session, you'll notice a marked difference in your skin tone.
SunScape Sunless Tanning's customized tans don't only infuse skin with a radiant bronze glow. The expert technicians use a water-based solution enriched with aloe and Vitamin E to nourish skin as it becomes a healthy golden-brown. The technicians are trained in customized tans and spray on an even, streak-free coat that takes up to six hours to emerge.
Dr. Stephanie V. Oberhelman at Kansas Surgical Arts is both a Doctor of Osteopathy and a board-certified general surgeon. Armed with a laproscopic camera, she removes appendixes and diseased sections of colons with minimal incisions and stitches. She also uses cameras to peer into the GI tract, screening for cancers, snatching biopsies, and oohing over kaleidoscopic formations. To improve patients’ exteriors, her team of vascular experts maps out varicose veins with ultrasound technology before using noninvasive methods—such as sclerotherapy or lasers—to diminish their appearance.
Guests meander into Fit Physique Fitness Center’s open two-storied gym before working up a sweat on the track that encircles the balcony, or by hauling around free weights. After self-driven workouts, they can head up to the expansive, wood-floored studio for Zumba, yoga, or tae kwon do classes, or out onto the 15-station outdoor obstacle course where they’ll scramble up rope ladders and hoist themselves up and over wood-slatted walls. Children can cavort on the obstacle courses during birthday parties when they aren’t being watched, entertained, or taught to fill out individual income-tax returns in the onsite kid-sitting area.
