A hot towel soothingly loosens up pores at the outset of Royal Pampering Day Spa's signature facial treatment, where a mask of massaging cleanser and a toner exfoliates away dead skin cells. Facials like this one take up just a portion of the menu filled with relaxing spa services. Skin care professionals with more than 10 years of experience knead bodies with styles such as deep-pressure, sports, and therapeutic massage as visitors lay atop heated beds in one of seven treatment areas. Staffers also offer packages that include hand-and-foot treatments for girls and moms, as well as makeup and updos for brides-to-be.
The techs at Pinnacle BioLabs use sophisticated equipment to test bodily fluids for illicit intruders and cancer indicators. Drug tests scan for substances such as cocaine, amphetamines, or candy cigarettes, allowing addictions or abuse problems to be brought to light. FIT tests help catch the warning signs for colorectal cancer, which can be highly treatable if detected early.
The accomplished tattoo artists at KYSL Xtreme Ink and Piercing stamp the skin with colorful, custom art and decorate the body with shimmering hoops and studs. Their repertoire of meticulously inked images ranges from whimsical pictures such as a giraffe or sentient ice-cream cone to more iconic visuals, such as a shadowy portrait of John Lennon or a bold emblem of Captain America's shield. The team also applies permanent makeup designed to match skin tone and personal style. Bright-red walls, leather couches, and hardwood floors create a salon-like interior, and 60-inch televisions distract clients wary of needles and getting burned by a flaming yin-yang symbol.
Dr. Tom Haas might be the one examining clients at Imaage Cosmetic Surgery Center, but there’s a chance they might recognize his face as well. The board-certified plastic surgeon has made multiple television appearances, been featured in numerous magazine articles, and offered advice in several educational cosmetic surgery videos. Readers of LEO Weekly named Dr. Haas the area’s best plastic surgeon in 2009, 2010 and 2011, and the center also earned the publication's best spa award in 2011. The state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery suite puts client satisfaction first, offering a discrete exit for patient privacy and a comfortable waiting area for loved ones. Most procedures can be performed under Twilight anesthesia, which reduces undesirable side effects such as grogginess and mid-session snoring. The center's registered nurse and licensed aestheticians also perform a variety of nonsurgical services, including laser facial treatments, peels, and body-contouring VelaShape sessions.
Lasers can be used to solve virtually any problem at Ultimate Vein Care. Specifically, the technicians?under the guidance of board-certified vascular surgeons?enlist three different cosmetic laser systems that provide them with the flexibility to treat various skincare conditions using minimally invasive means. By bombarding the skin with specific wavelengths of laser light energy, the technicians are able to rid clients' bodies of unsightly stubble or spider veins, and they can also improve the skin's overall tone and texture by minimizing the appearance of blemishes such as wrinkles, age spots, and acne scars. The versatility of the laser systems allows the staff to more effectively treat clients with a range of skin types. However, lasers aren't the center's only recourse for dealing with varicose or spider veins. Sclerotherapy is also an option, sealing off blood vessels with the help of very fine injections instead of microscopic strands of caution tape.
