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.
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. In order to restore youthful looks lost to time or under sofa-seat cushions, techs use approaches such as fractional CO2, Botox, and chemical peels to combat wrinkles. 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.
The research staff at 7E—a medical-aesthetic company that prides itself on skincare innovations—designs noninvasive treatments that combat the effects of aging and bolster all-over wellness. Once staff members have perfected a solution, they share the fruits of their labors with clients at 7E Fit Spa. One of these many fruits is the Torc Plus, an FDA-approved body-contouring machine that works to deplete inches and bulk up muscles in bodies through electrical stimulation. The spa’s noninvasive face-lifts tighten visages while evening out skin tone, reducing puffiness, and increasing circulation, and saunas detoxify the body and relax clients with infrared heat shoplifted from the equator.
The technicians and physicians at Simplicity Laser Hair Removal work to evict wily follicle lodgers of all colors with advanced hair-razing equipment that combines FDA-approved diode, Nd:Yag, and alexandrite lasers. Customers can gently pulverize strands in one body area with six or eight treatments of concentrated pulsed photons, which coax squatting body threads out of their skin shelters with laser wavelengths and candy. Alternatively, opt for a full year of treatments to tackle multiple areas across unlimited visits. Simplicity Laser Hair Removal's triad of modern laser technologies promises safe and effective treatment during each session of 30 minutes or less. Although these treatments can be effective in permanently reducing unwanted fuzz, most patients require 8–12 sessions for full reduction due to hair-growth dormancy, laser-absorption rates, and hard-to-locate follicle foxholes.
Light doesn't just tan skin at Soleil Tanning and Boutique—it also heals. That's because in addition to a lineup of lie-down and stand-up UV-tanning beds, the salon is also home to a red-light-therapy booth. This booth sends waves of infrared light into the skin in an effort to boost circulation, which has the effect of not only diminishing fine lines and calming acne outbreaks, but also relieving joint inflammation and other forms of chronic and acute pain. The salon provides eye protection to clients who need it, and, because tanning lotions, like people taking too long in the gas-station snack shop, are easy to leave behind, it allows patrons to store their supplies there.
