With sweeping views of a tree-studded, 18-acre lake, Silver Lake Wellness Center's picturesque location reflects the beautifying procedures that go on within its walls. Inside, Dr. Richard Silver calls on more than three decades of experience in anti-aging medicine and teams up with a naturopathic doctor and a licensed dietician to help patients achieve better health inside and out. With each patient, the experts discuss procedures ranging from Botox injections and Smoothbeam laser facial treatments to biodentical hormone-replacement therapy, which can help to reinvigorate the body by keeping its chemistry in balance.

Rinkov Eyecare sends their customers into the world with a clearer view by affixing customized lenses into their wide selection of designer frames. The eyewear emporium can fit Cole Haan ($175 with lenses included) or BCBG ($175 with lenses included) frames with prescription polycarbonate or plastic lenses, both materials superior to prescription bubble wrap. Clients can have their frames fitted with prescription sunglass lenses to keep their vision focused while facing the sun's rays. Rinkov Eyecare Center accepts clients on Saturdays and during evening hours at most of their locations to accommodate work, school, and storm-chasing schedules. Although this Groupon is not valid toward eye examinations, Rinkov's optometrists can also evaluate the vision of patients lacking a current prescription for an additional fee.
A PGA member since 1986, Chuck Mayhew employs a fundamentals-first teaching methodology, thoroughly familiarizing students with the basics of swing mechanics before moving on to more complicated tweaks. Though certain golf tenets are universal, Mayhew knows that any single teaching method won't work for every player. Some are visual learners, some learn by repetition, and still others can only learn when a cast of singing hand puppets teaches them. Private lessons begin with an assessment of each player's current ball positioning, alignment, and swing posture—key components that must be corrected before beginning any backswing. Mayhew conducts lessons at Four Seasons Golf & Fitness Center, a full-service indoor golf-instruction facility that can stay open despite rain or bunker sandstorms.
A Touch of Heaven Salon Massage & Day Spa stocks a large inventory of well-respected pampering products. Nail technicians employ OPI and Gelish polish, and hairstylists primp tresses with smart Solutions, Redken, Sexy Hair, and KMS products. An assemblage of massage therapists and aestheticians performs indulgent work at the spa too, allying to relax and beautify their clients. They execute 10 varieties of massage, from the gentle, simple Swedish to the choreographed complexity of the four-handed massage—performed by two therapists or one octopus also juggling four tennis balls. They combine treatments of the body's inner tissues with herbal or peppermint-scented wraps to rejuvenate the outer layer.
Outside of the private rooms lies the salon proper, where stylists carefully ply their craft on the hair and nails of their patrons. They imbue locks with new color, wax away unwanted hair, and even provide spray tans to maintain a summery glow throughout winter's tenure.
Mouthbone specialist Dr. Ravinder Gampa oversees a friendly staff of teeth technician that guides visitors to enamel excellence through routine- and cosmetic-dental services. During the comprehensive oral exam, Dr. Gampa surveys teeth, gums, and soft tissue for signs of oral antagonists, before charting periodontal locations into a connect-the-dots puzzle that forms an elephant tusk. To further acquaint himself with the client's teeth, the dentist may suggest panoramic x-rays to evaluate how the upper and lower teeth are meeting, or bitewing x-rays to reveal potential tooth decay. The four-step Zoom! treatment dedicates 15-minutes to whitening teeth up to eight shades, the opposite reaction that a snowflake experiences when fluttering into a tar pit. After isolating teeth from gums, a dental doyen coats each food destroyer in a light-activated proprietary gel that breaks up stains and discoloration. West Carrollton Dental recommends three treatments for the best results, and clients leave with custom-fit trays to continue the whitening process at home.
