The rays of the sun. The flicker of candlelight. The soft glow of fireflies on a summer evening. Humans are attracted to natural radiance, even in the metaphorical sense. While faces may not actually have the power to emit light, it's no surprise that phrases like "he was beaming" and "she lit up when she saw him" often find their way into the English language. The aestheticians at Medical Arts Unlimited's Advanced Skin Care Medical Spa understand the desire to keep the fires of youth burning bright. Ranging from facials and chemical peels to microdermabrasion and Botox injections, their results-oriented clinical treatments take years off of features while simultaneously delaying further signs of aging. In addition to their traditional treatments, aestheticians also equip beautifying technologies, including IPL and DioLite lasers, to keep skin healthy with the aid of the safest science. They also extend their handiwork's effects with a full range of products designed for the everyday maintenance of at-home use.

Owned by Dr. Omar Dalloul, Purity MediSpa uses modern aesthetic procedures to solve common beauty woes and boost client confidence. The staff's arsenal of high-tech equipment includes the Pain Free, Hair Free laser hair-removal system, the versatile Alma Lasers Laser360, and a microdermabrasion tool that destroys impurities such as blackheads, lessens appearance of age spots, sun damage, and acne scarring, and buffs away dulled skin cells to reveal the younger-looking skin underneath. The staff also performs less flashy procedures, including facials infused with such low-tech and natural ingredients as seaweed and vitamins.

Palm trees gently sway above a solitary islet of white sand, the turquoise waters around it almost indistinguishable from the sapphire sky. This photograph hangs on the wall of Massage Motu's waiting room, and it's a fitting image. In Tahiti, "motu" refers to a small island, and while Massage Motu might not be located in the tropics, its serene confines aim to make guests feel as if they've stumbled onto a secluded beach.

Inside private rooms, Motu's massage therapists customize body treatments to soothe clients' stress and aches. Swedish and hot stone massages melt away built-up tension and layers of frost, while special modalities?including prenatal techniques and hand and foot reflexology?focus on specific points of discomfort. Aestheticians are equally adept at fine-tuning facials to address acne, sensitive skin, or signs of aging.

The "ZaZa" in ZaZa Salon and Day Spa is a portmanteau of its owners names: Helen Zarovsky and her son Leo Zarovsky. But the 3,500-square-foot facility is more than a fusion of the Zarovsky's 20 years of industry experience; it's an amalgam of their devotion to quality education (they employ a team of stylists and European-trained aestheticians and nail technicians). Each stylist takes their specialization to an art-form, focusing on cuts, colors, or styles. ZaZa Salon and Day Spa combines their experience with impeccable customer service. This means that each client is greeted with a complimentary drink from the espresso and juice bar, and that every service is performed in only the most sanitary environment.

Recessed lighting and golden, mod hanging lamps illuminate the dark wood salon floor, complementing the warm color scheme and orange accents throughout. It's here that stylists draw from their top-notch arsenal of Oribe, Kevin Murphy, Moroccanoil, and organic Davines products to revamp tresses, as nail techs redo digits with OPI and essie shades or apply no-chip and UV gel manicures. In private treatment rooms, aestheticians reach for vitamin-rich Dermalogica and Intaglio skincare formulas to brighten complexions, and use regular wax, blue Azulene wax, sugar wax, and threading to remove hairs from sensitive skin and fragile peaches.
