The staffers at Sunsets Tanning declare that their mission is to make clients “look good naked.” To do this, they put their Smart Tan certification to use to outline a tan plan based on each client’s skin tone and desired shade of bronze. Then they guide clients into private treatment rooms for airbrush tanning or show them how to hop into tanning beds—like a bunny, preferably. Both the rooms and the beds within them are meticulously cleaned by the spa’s staff. They also change each bed’s bulbs after 200 hours of service so that they always shine as brightly and evenly as the fluorescent scales of justice that hang outside of the Supreme Court.
Clearstone Spa was founded to assist clients seeking a way to improve their appearance by permanently reducing or eliminating unwanted hair. While the spa has won the 2013 Best Laser Hair Removal Provider award from H-Texas Magazine they have also expanded services to include beautifying treatments such as chemical peels, IPL photofacials, HydraFacials, and microdermabrasion. The team harnesses an arsenal of Nd:YAG, KTP, and Alexandrite lasers, which they use to treat unwanted hair, tattoos, or signs of aging such as sun spots and molting.
Expectant parents feel at ease in A Star Is Born 3D’s environment, which trades typical doctor's-office trappings for chic gray couches, a coffee bar, and earth tones that decorate waiting-room walls. The welcoming decor complements the center's mission to treat parents to vivid photographs of their soon-to-be-borns with ultrasound and imaging technology that goes beyond standard OB/GYN equipment. An ARDMS-registered sonographer on staff lends expertise to sessions that reveal tiny smiles or a baby's gender, which is usually able to be determined at 17 weeks. A Star Is Born 3D invites friends and family to witness the procedure in an ultrasound room that features sumptuous leather seating for 15 people and a 110-inch projector screen to view results after the coming attractions and four car commercials. The sessions can result in crisp prints, CDs, or DVDs to add to the baby book, and a GE Voluson i laptop even enables the ultrasounds to go portable for baby showers or private viewings at home.
Felicia Benson, Polo Salon & Spa's principle stylist and colorist, blends more than 20 years of salon experience into her professionalism and attention to detail. Her salon's trained staff wields an arsenal of L'Oréal Professionnel hair colors as well as the new L'Oréal INOA, a non-ammonia product available exclusively at certified salons. In addition to color, the staff members help clients reimagine their looks with precision cuts for men, women, and children, anti-aging facials, and artificial and natural nail services.
The scents of freshly baked pastries in the morning and the aroma of hors d'oeuvres in the evening waft through the salon, and complimentary beverages such as wine further please the senses, unlike if humans could smell the scent of losing their keys.
Boca Tanning Club salons bronze clients with the help of super tanning beds and booths, as well as UV-free VersaSpa spray-tanning booths. Clients walk past the painted vines, rocks, and rainforest-themed decor before stepping into the spray-tanning booths, which gild limbs in 60 seconds, or into a super bed, which caramelizes skin in less time than a traditional bed. In private rooms, technicians wielding airbrush systems custom shade and contour muscles while de-emphasizing vestigial tails.
