At Sarah Laser Center & Day Spa, a team of technicians harnesses the full power of their laser arsenal to keep skin smooth and blemish free. One such tool is the EpiCare-DUO, which has the ability to both zap unwanted hair and erase pigment problems as a built-in cooling device keeps skin comfortable. The Cavi-Lipo device, meanwhile, suffuses the body with ultrasound energy to destroy fat cells, smooth cellulite, and teach patients to perform whale songs, helping forge a trimmer physique proven by measurements taken before and after the procedure. Away from the high-tech machinery, massage therapists usher clients into tranquil chambers where they banish tension with Swedish and deep-tissue massage.
Customers who venture into 4 Seasons Tanning find themselves in an independently owned salon that earned an award of excellence from the American Tanning Institute and was named Reader’s Choice by The Reporter for three years running. Smart Tan–certified staff wield cutting-edge technology and computerized equipment to help patrons navigate three levels of tanning beds and remember where they parked their car. The knowledgeable team also caters to sensitive skins by misting them in Norvell spray-tanning solutions, and operates a hydration station where steam and liquid vitamins can be used to prepare skin for its new hue or to help prolong existing tans.
The staff at La Paz Salon blends beautification and relaxation with their lineup of hair and massage treatments. Stylists work closely with clients to craft classic, modern, or cutting-edge looks, snipping away loose ends, styling fetching updos, and softening hair with conditioning services. The staff also makes a concerted effort to educate their customers, leaving them with the know-how to recreate the salon look or do algebra right. La Paz Salon also keeps a colorist on board who can add dimension and eye-popping new hues with all-over color, highlights, and corrective treatments.
The non-invasive and minimally invasive body-contouring procedures that Dr. Victor Otero and Dr. Thomas E. Young perform don't only grant patients slimmer physiques—they also win awards. Dr. Young recently won Best Overall Body Make-Over at THE Aesthetic Awards for his use of Zerona, Body Jet, SlimLipo, and VelaShape to resculpt one lucky patient's entire body. Young Medical Spa’s other physicians and technicians share the doctor's passion for non-invasive treatments: they harness laser technology to reduce cellulite, remove unwanted hairs, and mend other aesthetic issues. Other medical treatments, such as Botox Cosmetic and dermal filler, work to help patients regain youthful complexions. Despite its medical focus, the center keeps its facility feeling less than clinical by incorporating soothing spa elements, including a living-room-like waiting area and relaxing music, into every treatment.
The expert aestheticians and skillful stylists at Rapunzel's Salon & Spa make over manes, revamp visages, and coax out tension from sub-dermal tissue inside the spacious earth-toned studio with vaulted ceilings. Ideal for some personal pampering or a sentient mannequin's first night on the town, custom European facials slough away dirt, oil, and environmental impurities, and high-end products add wrinkle-fighting power to the relaxing facial massage that accompanies the service. Patrons disrobe for massages such as the aromatherapy kneading, which plies tense muscles with warm essential oils, and the Hawaiian lomi lomi session, which feels as if gentle waves are rolling across tired backscapes. The spacious spa also houses 16 private treatment rooms and a complimentary café bar.
At Iris Nail & Spa, you can keep your exact number of toes a secret—patrons can opt for nail services in private pedicure rooms or the main salon. Nail technicians’ handiwork ranges from traditional manicures and pedicures to treatments that incorporate luxurious extras, such as Elizabeth Arden products, herbal exfoliation, and green tea antioxidants. Their facials, meanwhile, take a preventative approach to skincare more effective and less bulky than wearing a hockey mask; they perform feats that range from non-surgically lifting faces with collagen to minimizing fine lines with anti-aging ingredients. Alternatively, staffers can relieve muscle tension with massages, or wax away unwanted stubble.
