Amadeus Spa's accomplished bite blanchers banish stains from teeth using the safe and speedy SpaWhite express system. Foam strips laden with a gentle yet powerful peroxide formula ensconce each row of tawny tusks, working in tandem with a cool blue LED light to dropkick stains caused by aging, smoking, or gargling with paint. Over the course of 15 minutes, teeth turn two to four shades whiter, helping patients obtain a younger-looking smile without the use of gooey whitestrips or bulky bleaching trays.
At Mind, Body, & Soul patients need to drink water on the road to a slimmer figure?but beyond that, their weight loss treatments have little in common with traditional diet and exercise plans. Instead of sweating at the gym, patients lie on a treatment table during non-invasive sessions with the clinic's cold laser systems: the YOLO Curve and the Lapex BCS Lipo Laser. Both systems are based on similar scientific principles?their lasers are set to the correct frequency to puncture fat cell membranes while leaving skin unharmed. Once punctured, the fat cells release their contents, which are disposed of naturally through the lymphatic system, just like human feelings. Time atop a full-body vibration platform catalyzes that process, as does drinking plenty of water before and after the treatment.
Leslie and Carol combine their talents to create relaxing spa days for guests to the independent studios inside Private Spa.

Once skin is cleansed and rejuvenates, Carol takes over, applying her training as a licensed massage therapist to relax the muscles in the back and shoulders. She bases her massages in science and neuromuscular therapy to reduce aches, pain, and tension.
