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. 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.
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.
Within the historic Cottage Grove Hotel, Buster's Main Street Cafe serves burgers of locally raised, grass-fed beef from Knee Deep Cattle Company. Chefs crown patties with accouterments such as bacon, cheese, ham, and avocado. Breakfast offerings of omelets and several styles of eggs benedict reward early-rising appetites, while later diners may sip craft brews or select one of 200 craft sodas, including 40 varieties of root beer massaged from the roots of sacred shrubs.
When the stylists at Hair Candy Salon & Spa look at a head of hair, they see nothing but stylish possibilities. Depending on the client, they might add dimension with partial highlights, lengthen hair with extensions, or use keratin treatments to tame stubborn frizz and curls. Once they've transformed manes, the beauty experts turn their attention to the rest of the body. They wax unwanted hair and smooth skin with more than a dozen facial treatments, including a therapeutic pumpkin mask with the same nutrients that keep jack-o'-lanterns from ever getting pimples. In addition to these services, the staff uses FDA-approved lasers to prevent and reverse hair loss.
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.
