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's technicians still offer full hair-removal services, they have 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.
Alite Laser Hair Removal & Skin Rejuvenation’s three locations act as upscale sanctuaries where clients can go to lose spider veins and unwanted fat, but their specialty is hair removal. A trio of hair-removal procedures—waxing, laser removal, and electrolysis—fight follicles more effectively than scaring hair away like it’s a case of the hiccups. When they aren’t performing laser hair-removal procedures, technicians harness the power of light to brighten skin during facials.
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.
After nearly 20 years of experience as a medical aesthetician and laser specialist, Designer Skin of the Palm Beaches owner Karin Ellis left her post working alongside trusted plastic surgeons to open up her own skin boutique. Today she pays forward everything she's learned to her clients, who reap the benefits of her expertise and that of her professional team. Together, the aestheticians help their clients' skin appear smoother and tighter, diminishing fine lines without surgery. In its place, they use laser technology to erase sunspots and old scars, or chemical peels to reveal younger-looking skin.
Fluctuations in stress levels and health often go often hand in hand, and addressing one without the other can mask but not eliminate problems. Knowing this, the staff of licensed massage therapists and aestheticians at Absolute Wellness Spa works to cultivate a tranquil environment in which relaxing treatments address both bodily and mental health at the same time. Those treatments, which include massages, healing acupuncture, and mud wraps, draw on Western medical practices and Eastern philosophy to better approach wellness issues from a variety of angles. In the studio, quiet music plays to relax patrons, and fountains burble softly like a scuba diver trying to tell a secret.
