The artists at The Missing Piece Tattoo decorate appendages with permanently inked masterpieces. Artists draw upon their respective portfolios to emblazon emotional statements upon unblemished skin or to cover up tats bearing the names of unrequited loves and lost pet monkeys. Clients seeking personalized embellishments may consult with artists to forge custom-crafted images, and laser removal services erase unwanted tattoos. Skin-painters open single-use needles from sterile packages in front of their clients before work commences, and tools and countertops receive routine chemical sterilization overseen by a registered nurse.

A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach A 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.

With three levels of UV beds and an organic, FDA-approved spray-tanning solution at their hands, the Smart Tan–certified staff at Coconutz Tanning Spa can create a customized tanning regimen to match nearly any skin type or desired level of darkness. The salon’s UV beds contain up to 56 bulbs that bronze skin, and optional high-pressure tanners show embarrassing home videos to quickly add color to faces. The spray tan’s natural, organic ingredients diffuse across skin in a hand-sprayed mist, imbuing your body with a summery sheen that lasts five or more days. When the golden mist clears, shelves stocked with a lineup of sunless-tanning and tan-enhancing lotions come into view. These specially formulated products further darken the skin’s hue and protect it from drying out with added moisturizers.

The continually educated mouth specialists of Sunshine Dental keep smiles healthy with a tag team of preventative dentistry and modern technology. During the appointment, a licensed dentist scours the mouth for signs of decay, cavities, and lost gummy bears (a $97 value) with an attention to detail normally only exhibited by pickleball referees. X-rays, including four bitewings, an extraoral, and a panoramic (a $234 total value), allow the certified tooth whisperer to inspect cuisine crushers in greater depth in a set of black-and-white snapshots. Take-home whitening treatments evict the yellow from teeth with stain-fighting bleach and a sheriff-delivered court order. Mouths that return dutifully to the dental office every six months for a checkup receive additional treatments for free.

Valley Dermatology’s Dr. Scott A. Smith curtails signs of aging with a host of minimally invasive cosmetic treatments. Dysport, a skin-smoothing serum, temporarily irons out cranial creases for up to four months. The 15-minute treatment targets facescapes wrought with creases and lines by dispersing a dewrinkling solution that calms hyperactive facial muscles. The dewrinkling solution can smooth furrows on the forehead, crow's feet, or between the eyebrows; and the minimally invasive treatment requires no downtime, so faces can resume everyday activities such as smiling and catching whipped cream pies.

Inland Empire Dermatology's board-certified dermatologist Dr. Paul Ross and his hand-selected aesthetician Sarah Mjelde help clients feel at ease during personalized medical and aesthetic skincare treatments. No matter the client's age, Dr. Ross aims to diagnose skin cancer early using a dermoscopy technique to examine each mole and pigmented lesion tagging the client's body or growing at the place where their body meets their shadow. Since joining the Inland family more than six years ago, aesthetician Sarah has shown an aptitude for revitalizing complexions using advanced technology, including a trio of lasers—Iridex Diolite 532 and Candela's GentleLase and Smoothbeam—which gently whisk away unwanted pigmentation, hair, and acne. Sarah also dolls up visages with expert makeup applications utilizing Jane Iredale cosmetics. Those unsure about their current skincare routine can tote in their epidermis-enhancing products, and Sarah will give them an honest evaluation and suggest products that can better benefit their skin, which could include the Clarisonic brushes, NeoStrata products, and Viveté Revitalizing Eye Cream lining the office's shelves.
