In 1911, when he opened Standard Optical, Henry Schubach could not have guessed that his successors would be providing LASIK treatments and contact lenses in 18 clinics. Each office fills with chatter as doctors check prescriptions and work to identify common optical issues, such as glaucoma or weeping when an onion dies. Light skips off ranks of designer frames from Coach, Maui Jim, Guess, Lacoste, and Dior, and transitional lenses darken as newly keen-eyed patrons mosey from the shop. The staff at Standard Optical has also performed more than 15,000 LASIK procedures, and offers a free consultation for those seeking to ditch frames.
Beauty may be subjective, but beauty treatments are a science at Belladante Medical Institute. Led by Dr. Aaron Jones, the dedicated staff uses medical-grade technology to effect dramatic aesthetic changes. The center's Cutera Xeo cosmetic laser system inhibits the growth of stubble and body goatees, and the MiXto SX microfractional CO2 laser stimulates collagen production, improving skin texture and tone. Laser liposuction procedures help contour silhouettes fast, and medical weight-loss services strive to generate lasting results by combining customized diets with prescription medications intended to jump-start metabolisms.
Native Americans first discovered the naturally warm waters of Crystal Hot Springs during their wintry travels through the Wasatch Mountain ranges. Sheltering that first wave of travelers, the hot springs later soothed the muscles of weary workers of the transcontinental railroad before being incorporated as a business in 1901. Separate hot and cold springs share space some 50 feet from each other, cooling or warming sinews and allowing visitors to immerse themselves in naturally high mineral content. Guests can also take refuge in more than 100 available camping sites and sample the fast and furious dips of the slide park. The aquatic expanse is open seven days a week over both the winter and summer, cooling down visitors during sweltering August days or warming them up after a January footrace against a yeti.
