Laser Light and Sound tones and pampers client bodies with an array of laser- and sound-wave-based procedures. Health Canada–approved and featured on a variety of television programs, Zerona treatments shape bodies and reduce fat through the noninvasive rays of Erchonia cold-laser therapy. Though ineffective against most supervillains, the cold lasers swiftly emulsify subcutaneous adipose tissue in up to 10 areas at once, including stomach, back, hips, thighs, buttocks, chin, neck, and arms. Low-level-laser stimulation disrupts fat-cell membranes, gently releasing cellular contents into the surrounding space without damage to nearby capillaries or civilian cells. Superfluous fat-cell contents leave the body during its normal detoxification cycles with the aid of white blood cells.
Amid warm-toned walls, decorative screens, and pastel paintings, Shelley Rinas puts lasers to work to oust unwanted body hair, minimize the appearance of brown spots and varicose veins, and tighten skin with four categories of treatments. An electrologist for more than 25 years, Ms. Rinas has continued her education to keep herself up-to-date with newer laser technologies, such as IPL.
To slow the aging process, the staff at Almost Famous Laser Corp opts for advanced technologies. For instance, the Elōs-powered Syneron eMax laser removes unwanted hair, pigmentation, and spider veins, and the ReFirme and Triniti treatments help tighten skin. For more traditional cosmetic care, they also can rejuvenate complexions using chemical peels.
The Smart Tan–certified staff at Coco Cabana knows how to enhance the power of their UV beds with their collection of lotions and partner with aestheticians to enhance bodies during swimsuit season. The most powerful of their UV beds glows with ESP lamps, and their booths warm those standing inside with bulbs up to 160 watts. Two machines help visitors realize an aesthetic of fitness and relaxation pioneered by slack-resistance bands. A UV booth from Soltron gives those inside the chance to exercise gently while soaking up rays, and an automated massage bed kneads limbs with covered, warm-water jets. Nimble human hands, however, remain responsible for stripping away body hair with waxing services and transforming hands and feet into fashion accessories.
