The staff at Premier Wellness Center knows that beauty lies both inside and out; that's why their services cover wellness and esthetic needs. On the one hand, medically minded staffers provide weight-management, pain-management, and naturopathic treatments, as well as acupuncture, hormone testing, and nutritional advice. On the other hand, beauty-minded staffers helm facials, exfoliate skin with chemical peels, and administer Botox injections to fill in wrinkles and tally marks on the forehead that give away a person's age.
Arrowhead Dermatology wrangles a team of board-certified dermatologists, nurse practitioners, and aestheticians—many of whom have worked in harrowing environments, such as burn wards, the air force, and Texas. Their services tend to fall into two categories: treatments that promote healthy skin and treatments with a more cosmetic slant. For the former, Arrowhead's dermatologists perform mole monitoring for skin cancers, offer treatment for warts, rashes, and cysts, and put together plans that help patients reduce acne outbreaks. On the cosmetic side, they'll team up with their aestheticians to perform laser hair removal, microdermabrasion treatments, and vestigial rhino-horn buffing.
Nationally certified tanning artist Nina Brown gives skin a natural-looking glow using organic, FDA-approved tanning potions. She learned to wield these hypoallergenic, paraben-free solutions under the tutelage of an airbrush artist who perfected her craft on the skin and patent-leather handbags of the cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Brown applies these professional techniques while bronzing clients in her studio or on location.
At Tangible Tanning Salon, clients perform their own Superman-like transformations as they step inside a UV or spray-tan booth and emerge freshly glowing. The tanning salon hosts three levels of tanning in beds and booths that allow clients to tan standing up, lying down, or balancing on their heads. The Smart Tan–certified staff can help guests to choose the right equipment and tanning time with a skin-type analysis and pampering lotions from Designer Skin.
Inside Sanctuary, certified cut-and-color specialists highlight a menu of services that deals exclusively in hair solutions, keeping up appearances with designer clips and snips, keratin treatments, damaged-hair repair, and color correction. Submit your locks to be shaped and handled by a stylist ($30–$70), or achieve an extra-straight style with a blow dry ($25–$40). A shine treatment helps heads of hair reignite their burnt-out halos ($30), and a single-process color amps up blandly burnished strands ($50+). Customers can also opt to use today's Groupon to buy a bigger treat for follicles, such as full-foil highlights ($100–$165) or a hat made of maple syrup.
