With science on their side, the aestheticians and technicians at Medi-Spa of Ocala help transform bodies from head-to-toe, all while clients lie perfectly still. During Zerona laser treatments, patrons rest atop a massage table for 40 minutes as a noninvasive laser device contours the body and whittles inches from the waist. Likewise, a radio-frequency treatment called the Venus Freeze gently eliminates wrinkles from the face or cellulite from the legs. Beyond creating beach-ready bodies, the Medi-Spa team also whitens teeth with the Brite White LED system, destroys toenail fungus using a HyperBlue laser, and offers a number of facials and microdermabrasion treatments to refine skin.
With the aid of modern medspa technology, Ocala Healthy Zone provides a shortcut to wellbeing that bypasses the time-intensive commitments of traditional fitness regimens. The studio's signature treatments utilize whole-body vibration platforms, which help bolster metabolisms and tone muscles in as little as 10 minutes, all without causing undue joint strain. Additionally, Ocala Health Zone helps people begin living healthier lives by offering circulation-boosting sessions in a far infrared sauna and by selling spa products made from hand-mined Himalayan salts.
At Laser Trim Contours, a team works to stress the importance of healthy diet and exercise in weight loss. They also understand how difficult weight loss can be even with proper nutrition, and wield Zerona lasers to help melt fat cells. Inside the soothing, spa-like environs, clients get comfy in their own private treatment rooms that block encroaching eyes and clumsy boom-mic operators.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
MedSlim Laser’s trained technicians treat as many issues as possible by utilizing four different, noninvasive systems. To shave pounds from clients’ torsos, techs brandish UltraSlim’s red-light therapy, which also helps to improve skin tone or sculpt targeted areas with UltraSlim Cold Light and Zerona scanning lasers. LipoRescue bends light waves to smooth the epidermis after surgical liposuction, whereas the noninvasive face-lift tightens facial areas without cables or surgery. To further ensure success of each treatment, every treatment is performed under physician supervision.
At Body by Us, registered nurse Jennifer Chapman specializes in the body-contouring and skin-tightening treatment known as Cavi-Lipo. IIn a private treatment room, Jennifer applies the ultrasound machine to areas such as the abdomen or love handles for 60 to 90 minutes. While clients relax, ultrasound waves target fat cells. The waves break them down, which allows the body's natural processes to remove the cells' unwanted contents. Afterward, clients relax in the wet sauna and rinse off under the spa's raindrop-style showerhead.
