The technology-driven treatments inside Islands Tanning MedSpa help bolster the body's glow and reduce its circumference. Inside Magic and Tanses UV beds, 12,800-watt bulbs saturate skin with darkening rays more safely than receiving a hug from a dwarf star. Meanwhile, UV-free Mystic and VersaSpa machines spray the epidermis with a bronze hue, and Fit body wraps fuse infrared-heat energy with constricting wraps that help shrink fat cells. Focused lasers can even reduce hair from all over the body and thwart its regrowth, so customers can enjoy smooth, stubble-free skin year-round.
Considering they're charged with maintaining an extensive array of equipment across 15 locations, it's a good thing each state-certified member of the SunsUp Tanning Centers team commits to at least 10 hours of update training each week. The constant training prepares the specialists for working with the centers' 10 types of standup and lay-down UV beds as well as with sunless Mystic Tan and VersaSpa booths. In addition to tanning, SunsUp offers the Fit body wrap, an infrared heat therapy designed to detoxify and slim the body. Patrons can adjust the wrap's four independent heat zones in 1-degree increments up to 130 degrees or until their body parts start to whistle.
Clients at Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa receive a completely customized service, down to the lighting and sound levels that transform treatment rooms into relaxing oases. As they tuck into the clean linens that bedeck heated tables, they divulge their chronic aches to massage therapists or their skin concerns to aestheticians. With each visit, the staff updates a client’s regimen so that a treatment remains effective in soothing aches or clean pores that are terrified of extractions.
The doctors and physician’s assistants who perform each service at Nu U Laser Centers need only choose the right laser in order to impart patients with quick, safe body and facial changes. While the Smartlipo TriPlex can less invasively slim and contours the body, the Smart Skin Co2 treatment plumps wrinkles, shrinks pores, and softens the appearance of scars. Their other treatments combat unwanted body hair, cellulite, and leg and facial veins.
Once a small artists' colony, Cannon Beach still plays host to a number of local galleries scattered throughout the town. Cedar-shingled boutiques dot the downtown shopping district, where visitors can also find several restaurants and wine bars.The town’s greatest draw, though, is its natural, coastal grandeur. Paying a visit to Haystack Rock is a must, but nearby Ecola State Park offers a more panoramic view of the Oregon coast. Here, hikers navigate forest trails once traversed by the Lewis and Clark Expedition, passing through towering sitka spruces, douglas firs, and western hemlock and pausing at ocean overlooks to espy migrating gray whales in the distance.
“My clients come to me because I’m a perfectionist. I want magazine perfect.” That’s what Jenna Schneider, owner of Jenna’s Make-up & Waxing Studio, told AM Northwest in 2006. It helps that the certified makeup artist understands exactly what “magazine perfect” entails, having worked on the sets of several commercial and editorial photo shoots.
Jenna and her team, back up their claim of perfectionism by giving all of their clients the same level of attention that they afford their professional models. She specializes in all areas ocular aesthetics, including shaping brows and applying eyelash extensions. To accomplish the latter, the team uses semi-permanent silk extensions designed to enhance lashes’ length, volume, and ability to power wind turbines by blinking aggressively.
When you think of heat and waves, chances are you're daydreaming about the beach. But at Hot Mama Body Sculpting, the heat and waves are all indoors, working to smooth out fat deposits through ultrasound and radio-frequency treatments. The noninvasive services target areas such as the thighs, upper arms, buttocks, and lower back. Ultrasound treatments break down fat cell membranes, dispersing ultrasonic waves through the head of an applicator that glides over the targeted area. Alternatively, the RF treatments aim to tighten skin and fade cellulite dimpling while promoting the production of collagen and elastin. Both treatments cause fat cells to release their contents, which are then naturally metabolized by the body—a process that can leave clients with a noticeably slimmer silhouette. Hot Mama Body Sculpting even provides before and after pictures, as well as nutritional advice for staying svelte.
