Alcira Eimil—a certified medical electrologist and the owner of ANJ Permanent Hair Removal & Aesthetics—draws upon 15 years of experience to wrangle unsightly strands. ANJ's LightSheer Duet laser terminates unwanted hair quickly using tough yet gentle photons that harmlessly pass through the skin and directly impact hair follicles. The treatment targets hair of any shade other than gray or blond, and gents can boost suaveness by exiling errant threads from the back, ears, and sideburns beneath their pinky toenails. Though some patients experience discomfort during laser treatments, LightSheer Duet equipment reduces hirsuteness without requiring topical anesthetic, and lasers are calibrated for empathy and small talk with sensitive epidermises. While most patients achieve their desired level of smoothness in six or fewer treatments, results may vary based on skin tone or hair color and density.
At Cool Waters Holistic Center, licensed colon hydrotherapist Alba Mejia helps clients restore health and efficiency of interior plumbing through cleansing colon hydrotherapy. In the wellness center, earth-toned walls and plush leather couches welcome guests and help ease trepidation before the procedure. The soothing atmosphere continues inside tranquil treatment rooms draped in soothing yellow tones and inspirational quotes from celebrity plungers. There, a gentle stream of warm, purified water flows through the body's wasteworks, flushing out hardened matter and stranded kayakers built up inside.
"Purple is our theme color," says manager Karen Mesa, of the hue covering Chicka's Hair Salon's accent wall. "It's on our website, our business card; even our salon chairs are purple. We like purple." In line with their devotion to this regal color, stylists strive to give their customers the royal treatment: each shampoo also includes a relaxing head massage, and customers sip complimentary tea or coffee during haircuts. And, though the salon caters to its titular chicas by offering mani-pedis and waxing sessions, men and children can get beautified here, too. "Girls bring their husbands in," says Karen. "[It's very] family-friendly."
As a welcoming gesture, Daymara Navarrete and her staff of licensed aestheticians press a cup of wine, tea, or coffee into the hands of arriving guests. The team fosters a familial bond with clients during services ranging from therapeutic wraps and massages to cuts, styles, and hair texturing. Each staff member offers experience in a particular area and hones his or her skills through continual training on new products, such as Gelish polish, or through wagers that they can get a bespectacled mannequin asked to prom. As they execute their pampering services, most of which call upon OPI products, staff members navigate between rows of pedicure chairs and black leather-backed salon chairs. Their busy hands release a symphony of soft sounds that reverberates off dark wood accents and sea-green walls as floral arrangements nod their colorful heads in time.

Under the tutelage of board-certified doctors, the staff at Miami MD Spa utilizes cutting-edge laser technology to help clients attain smooth skin and revitalized features. The FDA-approved Candela GentleYAG laser machine plies hair from men's and women's skin through a small applicator tip that leaves regions such as the legs, back, and face free of unwanted body hair and necks free of steel bolts. While high-tech gadgets flicker and pulse, spa treatments such as medical peels, facials, and microdermabrasions actively encourage youthful color and firm texture to return to a client's face after years of working as a California Raisin impersonator.
