Two things helped New Concepts Med Spa to earn the title of CityVoter?s 2012 Best Medical Spa: technological prowess and a peaceful spa atmosphere. The spa's status as a state-of-the-art beauty center is unquestionable, since its equipment includes everything from a medical-grade microdermabrasion machine to a laser skin-rejuvenation system. But the surprising thing is how homey the clinic is. At this new location, visitors enter to see decorative lamps and throw pillows napping on upholstered chairs. Once outfitted in a downy robe, guests can make their way to private treatment rooms complete with sheer curtains and a deep-purple-and-blue color scheme. It's here that spa professionals assuage muscles with massages or revitalize complexions with facials as soothing music plays and firecrackers don't go off.
Salon Fiber's skilled stylists trim and style manes before infusing them with vibrant color, and also accent them with feathers. Through diligent snipping, scissors reframe hair art to give it the swirling texture of van Gogh's The Starry Night before stylists dye it a rich post-Impressionist blue. Alternately, feather extensions bring avian charm to hair nests, attracting compliments from passing joggers and attempts to relocate on top of heads from passing pelicans. All of Salon Fiber's beautifying services are done in a modern setting accented with energetic colors and grounded with sleek wood flooring.
The spa treatments at Lily Laser and Beauty have a far-reaching eclecticism. Take, for instance, the 4G facial. Using lasers, this 20-minute treatment can diminish break outs and firm skin.

Compared to other laser systems, the Soprano causes a low level of discomfort, thanks in particular to the DualChill tool that keeps the skin cool. But it still removes unwanted hair quickly and thoroughly. In addition to laser-powered treatments, beautifiers can also perform massage and waxing with a soy-based product, ultherapy, botox, filler, and professional teeth whitening.

Hollywood Tans' fleet of UV and spray-tanning booths gild epidermises with a host of high-tech amenities. The HT60 machine builds up a base tan in three–four sessions and catches most stray UVB rays, a process which prevents the skin from exfoliating and loosing its color too soon. Custom-airbrushed and Mystic spray-tan options bypass UV rays like a tree on a hunger strike, and customizable cartridges allow clients to choose their ideal color for a natural tan that lasts up to a week. The full-service salons are open seven days a week and also offer waxing, and makeup application.
