Spa-a-Peel’s sign says it’s “the look fabulous studio,” though the offerings within its peaceful confines go much deeper. Upon entering, clients are greeted by a smiling staff member who stands ready to help clients transform their day with a massage, a facial, or a mani-pedi. On top of that, treatments at Spa-a-Peel transport guests away from the daily grind and into a place of relaxation and bliss that feels like home, but with a far more talented staff.
Back in 1999, brothers David and Rick Kueber noticed a lag in business at their chain of video-rental shops during the summer months, when no one wanted to be cooped up inside watching movies. The two put their heads together and found a rather unconventional solution to their problem: tanning beds. They installed a new fleet of skin-bronzing machines and sat back as so many clients flocked to their shop that the brothers were forced to open an entire store just to cater to their clients? tanning demands. This was the birth of Sun Tan City. Today, what started as an experimental side business boasts more than 200 locations across 16 states.
The staff at each location maintains a meticulously clean space, where they show clients to UV beds dubbed fast, faster, fastest, and instant. The beds include features such as facial tanners and self-contained air conditioners. Alternatively, clients can opt for the UV-free, automated VersaSpa system, which swathes physiques in a DHA, plant-based bronzing solution. The liquid reacts naturally with skin?s amino acids, creating an even coat as radiant as the high beams on Helios?s chariot within 46 seconds.

Patients who visit Dr. William Massey at Elise Laser & Medical Spa know one thing: they won't be in for a long recovery period after undergoing one of his cosmetic procedures. That's because the doctor sticks to treatments that require minimal—if any—downtime, from photofacials and Botox to chemical peels and Aluma skin renewal. A particular attraction is fractional-laser skin resurfacing, a treatment that makes the skin seem firmer and decreases wrinkles after just 10–20 minutes.
