Skin Care By Design's microdermabrasion treatment uses the power of the Vibraderm's vibrating, abrasive, stainless-steel paddle to polish away the face’s dead skin cells, tiny blemishes, and dents caused by hastily opened car doors. The 30-minute process improves skin texture and tone—stimulating new collagen, firming the skin, and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. There is no downtime after getting a microdermabrasion treatment or consuming a giant, sloppy sandwich, but you might appear flushed for 15–30 minutes.
Planet Beach treats its clientele the right blend of beauty and relaxation. Visitors might relax atop a hydro-massage table, which uses heated water jets to soothe tense muscles. They can then get sun-kissed skin inside sunless tanning booths or opt for a luminous facial, which uses a bar of light to tighten and firm skin. Planet Beach also hosts Facial Fridays. During this weekly event, certified consultants design skincare regimens catered to each client's skin type.
For more than two decades, certified makeup artist Jill Boaz has been laying foundation, emphasizing the eyes, and contouring facial structures to inspire subtle or striking looks for her clients. Her confidence in her work has grown so strong that she now uses micropigments to permanently outline the eyes, shape the brows, and cross-out third dimples. In addition to an endorsement from the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals, Boaz’s beautifying skills extend to eyelash perms and lash-by-lash extensions.
Lady of America has designed its fitness centers, which are equipped with strength-training and toning equipment, specifically for women. Personal training grants expert advice, and the centers’ included on-site childcare frees up moms to attend group classes, such as Pilates, Zumba, and yoga, without their children interrupting their asanas to ask for financial advice. The staff also proffers senior programs and plans for weight loss and improved nutrition, and maintains an array of cardio equipment.
After having a sledding accident at age 8, Dr. Amanda Smicklas regained her health with the help of a compassionate chiropractor. Years later, that counselor served as the inspiration for Dr. Smicklas’s own chiropractic practice. Inside an airy office where Van Gogh's sunflowers adorn buttery-yellow walls, she works hard to make sure that her family-oriented practice lives up to its cheery moniker. Lavishing each guest in friendly, personalized attention, Dr. Smicklas places an emphasis on having fun, unlike practitioners who straighten up spines by making vertebrae sit through boring after-school specials. Technology is constantly updated to ensure that treatments are as effective as can be and that the office achieves its chiropractic goal of restoring comfort and overall health without drugs or surgery.
Led by owner Dr. Armando Gonzalez, the team of clinicians and technicians at Resolutions Medical Spa use state-of-the-art technology to revitalize both skin and body.

They also blast away unwanted hair with laser hair-removal sessions, and customize weight-loss plans to help clients drop extra pounds. To bolster these beauty services, massage therapists are on hand to quiet complaining muscles with Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal techniques.
