Even as a 4-year-old growing up in Honolulu, Vee Osborne was drawn to Hawaiian shamanism and the Huna philosophy, which stresses the balance of the mind, body, and spirit through one?s actions. Her early passion for healing others led her down the path to becoming a hypnotherapist, reiki master, and ordained minister before she funneled her devotion to creating harmony and guiding others toward wellness into Plaza West Massage & Day Spa. Here, clouds of gentle music and the scent of essential oils greet her guests, who slip into robes and sip wine as they unwind. And Vee?s Hawaiian roots remain readily apparent, inspiring the spa?s potted palms, bamboo massages, pi?a-colada scrubs, and wall-sized pictures that bring Pacific beaches to Kansas.
Vee?s healing services go beyond relaxation, though. Her team of massage therapists kneads aching muscles with Swedish, trigger-point, and deep-tissue modalities, deepening their knot-fighting effect with volcanic stones and essential oils. After a body wrap with Dead Sea salts or a glycolic peel, guests can visit the two-tiered sauna or extend their rejuvenation with an energy-balancing reiki session. The spa also delves into treatments that rely on electronic frequencies, such as a tri-phasic resonator, which fights cellulite, or quantum electro-ionization, which aims to diminish blemishes rather than cover them up with white-out. Before heading home, clients can pick up body and facial products from Vee?s eponymous line, such as Island Essence hair products, complete with tropical scents.

Transformation Clinics' certified staffers cultivate slim, svelte physiques with diverse noninvasive aesthetic treatments, healthy weight-loss regimens, and comprehensive packages. They cull a fleet of high-tech devices, such as infrared saunas and LED-light technology, that helps combat signs of aging, excess fat, and dimly lit fingernails. Aestheticians further enhance epidermises with makeup and skincare products from brands such as Matis Paris and Motives by Loren Ridinger, working alongside resident nutritionists who engineer customized wellness plans to help clients shed pounds and inches.
Claiming adherence to FDA?approved medications and using disposable equipment, Dr. Raveill and Dr. Caresio free patients from the blight of varicose and spider veins. Beginning with a free screening consultation, the doctors perform diagnostics to identify the optimal ultrasound-guided, minimally invasive treatment, which may include injections, laser-fiber therapy, or microextraction. By favoring nonsurgical procedures, The Vein Doctor's vascular vanguards cosmetically enhance epidermises, relieve vein pressure, and untie blood vessels bound in bows with minimal risk of scarring or bleeding.
The staff of licensed physicians, medical professionals, and aestheticians at DeSpain Cayce ensure the long-term health and stunning, untarnished beauty of all skin types with safe, speedy tattoo-removal techniques. Through a series of minutes-long laser treatments spaced four to six weeks apart, technicians gradually fade away tattoos of grocery lists and old addresses until nothing remains but bare, unsullied skin. During each treatment, short bursts of energy from an Astanza Trinity laser target pigment directly, breaking up inked areas in pieces small enough for the body's immune system to naturally flush it away. The nonscarring beam of erasing light safely and effectively removes all colors of subdermal inkings, including blue, green, and invisible.
At Summit Plastic Surgery, certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matt Chhatre enhances noses, breasts, and physiques with artful surgeries. But what he does outside of the operating room is just as important. He not only meets with clients for in-depth, empathetic consultations, but he also oversees the practice's medi-spa. Its range of complexion-brightening laser treatments include laser skin resurfacing and the smoothing MicroLaser Peel.
Meanwhile, Heather Mock, the licensed aesthetician at Summit Plastic Surgery with more than 1,500 training hours, deep cleans and rejuvenates complexions with enhanced medical microdermabrasions. Heather begins by swabbing away dirt and oils, then coaxing open the pores with hot towels and steam. A pre-exfoliation mask loosens dull skin cells before a diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wand buffs them away.
