At Slim Body Lipo, certified laser technicians target stubborn fat and loose skin with painless red-light treatments. The Painless Lipo Laser technology streams potent 635-nanometer light from 144 medical-grade diodes. The device's nonthermal energy and staff's repeated chants of "Open sesame" cause fat cells to release some of their contents, which can then be flushed out via natural body processes. Researchers at the Mayo Clinic and NASA have proven the safety and effectiveness of treatments that use specific red-light wavelengths. The procedure can be modified to address sagging skin, fine lines, blemishes, and scars by boosting collagen and elastin production on the face.
Behind their stations at More Than Nails by Michele, nail technicians paint digits with OPI, Essie, and China Glaze polishes as well as UV-cured Gelprisa polish. Additional services include teeth-whitening treatments with UV-activated whitening gel and Sunspray spray tans, enhanced with aloe vera and vitamin E.
As the hair-replacement specialist at J. Turner Salon & Spa, Kareemah Johnson wields her dexterous hands to thicken strands with extensions that she places in row by row. Despite her work in adding hair, though, she also removes it with an all-natural sugaring method, which can minimize the irritation that sometimes comes from other hair-removal tools like wax or velcro.
The many statues of the Buddha that decorate George Ryan Salon should clue customers into the fact that this isn’t just a hairstyling business. Of course, the staff here do cut hair and make it smoother with keratin treatments. But by emphasizing inner calmness and reflection, the salon helps clients relax and take a break from everyday stresses. After complementing their natural beauty with sun-kissed highlights or a tidy manicure, clients can take home a soy-based candle that matches their zodiac sign or a book on spirituality to bring that newfound peace home.
Fluctuations in stress levels and health often go often hand in hand, and addressing one without the other can mask but not eliminate problems. Knowing this, the staff of licensed massage therapists and aestheticians at Absolute Wellness Spa works to cultivate a tranquil environment in which relaxing treatments address both bodily and mental health at the same time. Those treatments, which include massages, healing acupuncture, and mud wraps, draw on Western medical practices and Eastern philosophy to better approach wellness issues from a variety of angles. In the studio, quiet music plays to relax patrons, and fountains burble softly like a scuba diver trying to tell a secret.
Boca Tanning Club salons bronze clients with the help of super tanning beds and booths, as well as UV-free VersaSpa spray-tanning booths. Clients walk past the painted vines, rocks, and rainforest-themed decor before stepping into the spray-tanning booths, which gild limbs in 60 seconds, or into a super bed, which caramelizes skin in less time than a traditional bed. In private rooms, technicians wielding airbrush systems custom shade and contour muscles while de-emphasizing vestigial tails.
