At Relax Center they take the time to really pamper the skin. Alongside their signature Swedish, deep-tissue, and aromatherapy massages, the team exfoliates dead skin cells with body scrubs. They can also add pure essential oils?which come in a rainbow of fragrances, such as lemon, cypress, grapefruit, and black pepper?to any of their massages. These additive-free oils not only soften the skin; they can augment the therapeutic benefits of the massage by soothing headaches, drawing out toxins, or toning cellulite.
The certified laser aestheticians at Laser Smooth Solutions use an FDA-approved Candela GentleYAG laser to remove unwanted hair from all areas of the body. They also wield lasers to tighten skin, creating more youthful appearances. Alternatively, state-licensed aestheticians administer facials, which use Image products to purify and cleanse. Regardless of the chosen treatment, visits always begin with a confidential consultation.
The team at International Beauty Salon prepares aspiring models to grace the fashion catwalk and pageant stage with comprehensive courses in modeling, pageantry, acting, and etiquette.

Their two-hour workshops focus on specific areas of modeling, whereas their five-day summer camps for teens cover a different aspect of modeling each day.
