At Elase spas, teams of nurses and experienced aestheticians smooth skin and tone bodies with dermal fillers, weight-loss therapy, and laser hair removal. Custom laser programs can zap hair from most body surfaces, and skin-rejuvenation treatments use intense pulsed-light therapy to reduce the appearance of sun spots, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
The licensed therapist at Body & Soul Therapeutic Massage specializes in medical massage. More specifically, she specializes in treating injury and chronic pain, and the treatments she offers—injury, sports, and deep-tissue massage—help clients overcome their physical afflictions. But the name of the studio is Body & Soul, and the latter certainly gets its fair shake. There's the AromaTouch massage, for instance, which uses more than 20 therapeutic-grade essential oils to induce feelings of deep relaxation and overall well-being. The studio also offers reiki and craniosacral therapy, as well as active isolated stretching.
Elevation Massage's licensed therapist, Andrew Leo Hansen, believes in the body's ability to heal itself. He feels that massage therapy is one way to prod it to do so. Hansen has honed skills in trigger point to unknot muscle fibers, deep tissue to restore structural balance, and injury massage to help relieve damage to muscle tissues. He works in a room that's charcoal grey, like a rumpus room after a grill explosion. This space features East Asian accents, such as a live bamboo plant and tapestries of Asian characters hanging on the walls.
The experts at Orem Body Contouring specialize in performing noninvasive aesthetic procedures to achieve results that are more than skin deep. Body contouring procedures take place in the tranquility of a private room, where a trained aesthetician targets problem areas with ultrasound and radiofrequency energy. These technologies are designed to shrink fat cells while tightening skin, helping forge a leaner, more toned body. For facial rejuvenation, seaweed masks nourish the face with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, helping guard skin against damaging free radicals and overenthusiastic sushi chefs.
Oxygen doesn't just grow on trees. It has to be cultivated by skilled farmers like those at Solase, who have harnessed its restorative properties to pair them with a dynamic array of therapeutic massage techniques. After muscles melt under shiatsu strokes or deep-tissue pressure, clients can enjoy a sturdy jolt of 40% O2 at the oxygen bar, available in such tantalizing scents as mango, pumpkin, watermelon, and new-yacht smell. Solase also offers an array of beautifying treatments, ranging from brow waxing and eyelash tinting to chemical peels and indulgent facials.
At Evermore Aesthetics, a self-labeled "lash-extension spa," a certified lash professional makes eyelashes thicker, curlier, and better at flirting with butterflies. The technician adheres extensions one by one, creating a bold yet natural effect. Tinting services match brows to lashes, and periodic fills replace any gaps.:m]]
