Smooth and Skinny is a fat-zapping facility where a staff of expert medical aestheticians uses cutting-edge, noninvasive technologies to reduce cellulite, leaving bodies slimmer and more toned. The med spa’s multitude of treatment options includes Endermologie and VelaShape systems, which use everything from light and radio frequencies to massage rollers and suction to target the deep-seated connective tissues that harbor cellulite and its various criminal accomplices. In addition to fat-fighting technology, Smooth and Skinny offers other beautification treatments including spray tanning and teeth whitening.
The pros at Parkridge Dental Spa aim to beautify not only clients’ teeth, but their entire faces as well. The combo dentist office and spa welcomes clients into a homey atmosphere with decorative sconces, ornate framed mirrors, and beds topped with plush mocha-hued sheets inside private treatment rooms. Inside these rooms, customers relax with organic peels, massages, and waxing services. The soft bubbling from a bronze-backed fountain lulls clients into a relaxed state inside dental rooms as they obtain routine check-ups or teeth whitening.
Doctors Greenway and his associates work in tandem with a staff of trained dental technicians to preserve, polish, and whiten choppers with a stockpile of dental services. In addition to routine cleanings and checkups, Greenway Dental Excellence straightens crooked chompers with Invisalign, brightens smiles with painless light-based teeth whitening, and tags out bicuspids due for retirement with dental implants, bridges, and veneers. The dentists also provide sedation for patients with anxieties, phobias, or teeth guarded by miniature junkyard dogs.
Ornate chandeliers, handsome wood hutches, and a vintage mirror set over a fireplace dress up the 1920s tudor home that serves as The Wax Lounge’s headquarters. But behind all that beauty lies a highly educated staff, including a salon biochemist who draws on a background in biological engineering and cosmetic chemistry to formulate many of the in-house products. That combination of style and substance permeates a menu of more than 250 services, including facials that firm sagging skin with microcurrent technology and Brazilian waxes made less daunting with the application of a special numbing cream. A lash specialist at the helm of the salon's GlitzLash Bar takes over where Mother Nature left off by dressing up peepers with extensions that call to mind pinup girls, burlesque stars, or the world's sexiest movie camels. Those looking to enhance their natural lash lines can try semipermanent mascara, which is formulated to be hypoallergenic, water resistant, and safe for pregnant women.
Dr. Anthony Kim doesn't just care for smiles⎯he values the patients attached to them, too. For that reason, he's expanded his practice beyond typical dental care to offer services rooted in aesthetics, orthodontics, and implant dentistry. Clients sip on complimentary water, juice, coffee, or tea before retiring to the confines of a treatment room. There, the skilled staff perform annual checkups or practice specialized laser procedures, gentle sedation dentistry, or health-promoting biological services. Dr. Kim also uses his dental know-how to help patients suffering from sleepless nights, screening for sleep apnea and creating custom guards that prevent loud snoring and yelling of numbers while counting sheep.:m]]
