The nurses, laser technicians, and aestheticians at Skintight Aesthetics don't just try to turn back the clock. Occasionally, they try to stop it in its tracks. Located inside Salon Surreal, the modern med-spa uses technological advancements to conceal the signs of aging and to prevent signs from appearing in the near future. The center's Exilis system uses radio frequencies to heat deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and creating a firm appearance without the hassles of surgery or finally using up that third genie wish. Injectable dermal fillers work beneath the surface to improve skin tone, and medical-grade skincare products help remove visible blemishes. To preserve clients' radiance between appointments, Skintight Aesthetics recommends supplements as well as hormone therapy, each of which can correct chemical imbalances and keep skin looking vibrant.
Skin Sultry has been helping clients flaunt healthy, beautiful skin for more than 15 years. Here, blueberries, oranges, and pumpkins stray from their standard jobs as healthy snacks and instead play a role in nourishing facial treatments. In blueberry bliss facials, for example, blueberries help brighten, exfoliate, and soften skin thanks to their potent antioxidants. Meanwhile, while some treatments rely on the nourishing power of vitamins and minerals, others rely on science for their skin-boosting prowess. Microcurrent facelifts use electricity to stimulate and tone facial muscles and re-set stopped internal clocks, while ultrasonic cavitation treatments help break down fat cells and flush out their contents for a slimmer, tighter physique. In addition to facial and body treatments, Skin Sultry can also enhance features with permanent makeup or highlight curves with non-toxic airbrush spray tans that impart a safe, long-lasting glow.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
