North Star Body Bar’s aesthetically driven specialists embellish epidermal expanses with a menu of services that darken, smooth, and soothe skin. During slimming body wraps, an aesthetician performs dry-brush exfoliation with a cheerful sea anemone, before swaddling physiques in algae, seaweed, mud, or clay to firm the skin and oust toxins. Endermologie treatments rely on rollers and suction devices to undo dimples throughout the body, and red-light therapy improves skin tone and eases aches. Beach House Tanning, North Star's body-bronzing area, houses a variety of tanning beds that help bodies produce more vitamin D. Tanners eschewing UV rays can yield their pelts to a sunless spray tan that imbues skin in golden hues without needing a chest bump from King Midas.
At the three locations of Sun Care Spray Tan & Skin Care Salon, customers use sunless spray booths, light therapy, and tanning beds to help get toned and bronzed. Beds of varying strengths and Mystic Tan booths allow customers to add color to their skin without napping on freshly painted benches in the park, and beds filled with pink-glowing bulbs help to tone skin. The salon's red-light therapy aims to painlessly promote circulation, fortify cellular walls in order to increase firmness, and banish eczema, stretch marks, and acne, while the hydration steam pod helps cleanse the skin and promote moisture retention.
The staff at Glow Skin, Lash and Spray Tan Boutique deliver services that help bestow each client with a youthful glow. Technicians remove dead skin and smooth over fine lines with corrective facial and body peels, and wax away hair from brows, bikinis, backs, and everywhere in-between, using a numbing spray to ensure client comfort. Spray-tans, teeth whitening, and lash extensions round out the roster of beautifying services.
Whether through UV beds or paraben-free tanning solutions, Soleil Tanning and Skin Care helps clients reach and maintain beach-worthy skin year-round. Customers can choose from an arsenal of premium- and velocity-level tanning beds, each tucked away in private rooms and designed to effortlessly bronze skin without the nuisance of sunbathing or sleeping next to an open oven. Meanwhile, Mystic spray tan booths airbrush pale complexions with a paraben-free and customized tanning spray. After their session, clients can amble into a private spa room for a Brazilian wax or lash tint, or head to the lobby to pick up a variety of products, such as Sanitas anti-aging skincare serums or a bottle of Twilight Teeth—a tooth-whitening gel that brightens smiles during the UV-tanning process.
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art equipment administer all the services. These friendly automatons facilitate everything from hydro massages and oxygen therapy to spray tanning and luminous facials. Each piece of equipment is designed for a specific service, which makes it the ultimate expert and keeps it from developing the ability to cry. Standard UV tanning booths are available ($13–$17 per session) along with Mystic spray tanning ($30 per session) for a light butterscotch topping. Advanced spa services, such as hydrodermafusion, sauna time, and LED facials ($40 per session) provide opportunities for sweating, moisturizing, and photoskinthesis.
The unconscious mind is a powerful tool, as Dr. Sumner Waltz knows, since she has years of experience helping patients tap into their subconscious. She lulls clients into a safe state of relaxation, drawing upon experience practicing hypnotherapy since 1986 and receiving her doctorate of hypnotherapy shortly thereafter. During her sessions, she helps clients reach their unconscious minds so that they can address and treat underlying symptoms of ailments such as chronic guilt, grief, depression, phobias, or fear of failure. It can also be used for physical ailments such as high blood pressure or managing pain. Patients can develop inner skills to control and transform mental and emotional states, letting them overcome these obstacles and limitations in their life. During sessions, clients typically explore uncharted pathways of their inner consciousness to reveal hidden emotions and feelings. This often leads to clients making discoveries of which they have no memory, which is why all sessions are recorded on tape, allowing individual clients to heal at their own pace.
