On-staff technicians also address beauty concerns using cutting-edge technology. Cold laser equipment, for example, drains fat cells at targeted locations, resulting in slimmer waistlines, svelter limbs, and tinier earlobes. Each treatment is augmented with thoughtful touches such as hot towels and aromatherapy.
Heather's Day Spa's owner and licensed aesthetician Heather Ann Sakelariou has been committed to the beauty of the Tampa area for more than 20 years. After graduating from the Elite Skin Academy she armed viewers of WTSP Channel 10 News with beauty tips in her segment Heather Ann's Eye on Your Appearance. In time she deepened her commitment by opening her spa and formulating her own line of beauty products.
When not busy maintaining her cosmetics, she spends her days pampering pelts with various skin services. From facials for men and women to body treatments such as the Hawaiian-salt body-glow scrub, she strives to nourish and heal skin. Heather also uses her knowledge to expand the beauty community, leading makeup lessons that teach women how to amplify their natural features without using a highlighter or attaching brightly colored arrows to their heads.
The aestheticians at Melaiya Skin Care Spa aim to repair skin ailments and restore visages to their original luster.

Reface façades between dirt-bike competitions with the 30-minute Let's Do Lunch facial (a $35 value), which begins with a consultation to ascertain which facial condition each guest would like to address. Afterward, countenances are cleansed, steamed, and exfoliated before being cocooned in the soothing concoction. Frontispieces are further nourished with moisturizer and skin-shielding cream while aromatherapy stimulates the olfactory system like a cartoon pie cooling on the windowsill.
Licensed aesthetician Raye Toscano and her husband, Dr. Francis Toscano, operate Red Bamboo Medi Spa, a facility that marries aesthetic treatments with nonsurgical, medical-grade therapies.

SmartLipo mimics liposuction treatments with fiber-optic lasers, and a four-layer face lift topically banishes dead skin with enzymes, glycolic acid, and mini exorcisms.
