Live Love Day Spa's licensed aestheticians and massage therapists work together to bolster inner wellness and imbue exteriors with a healthy glow. Magenta orchids peek out from all corners of the spa, lending their fragrances to the air while steady hands uproot unwanted fuzz and turn back the clock on complexions with an array of organic facials, vitamin C peels, and anti-aging treatments. Massage therapists ease physical and emotional tension with a slew of relaxing modalities, calling upon heated stones, aromatherapy oils, and deep-tissue techniques to relieve aches caused by skeletons trying to break loose of their human shells.

The beauty specialists at Salon Dolce’ luxuriate patrons from head to heel with an assortment of salon and spa services. A 30-minute full Brazilian wax ($45) thoroughly eradicates fleece from the bikini region, allowing lower halves to emerge from public fountains with confidence. Clients can preen surfaces in small doses with eyebrow, chin, or lip waxing ($15/area) or smooth facial terrains in their entirety with a full-face waxing ($40). To unload overburdened backs, treat muscles to a 30-minute relaxation, deep-tissue, or head-ache-relief massage ($35). Stylists transform languid locks into motivated manes with a haircut and styling (women $40; men $25; children $17), during which they administer Keune haircare products and reward polite strands with a lollipop.
The cosmetic specialists at Louisiana Laserderm evict unwanted, overstaying veins and tattoos from their epidermal abodes through nonsurgical procedures. The approximately 30-minute vein-removal treatment sends small leg or facial veins on a virtually permanent vacation by using gentle lasers that are quick and accurate—like a sprinting calculator. For larger leg veins, the procedure combines sclerotherapy injections with laser light to shrink unsightly protuberances with a dual-powered zap. The staff at Louisiana Laserderm recommend only one session of vein-removal treatment for the best results.
Urban Lash’s staff focuses their expertise on two particular beautifying treatments: airbrush tanning and eyelash extensions. For the former, they use Infinity Sun products rife with botanicals, antioxidants, and walnut extract. To lengthen eye fringe, they use anywhere from 20 to 90 lashes per eye to subtly augment a current look or create bold new ocular art.
Paradise Wellness Medspa owner Katrina McDaniel has opened more than 200 med spas across the U.S. during her impressive career. She has cultivated an eye for safe, effective high-tech skin and body treatments. At the clinic, licensed laser technicians consult with patients and prepare them for each minimally invasive procedure, which can range from banishing old tattoos to removing nail fungus with laser therapy. Noninvasive Zerona and Lapex treatments employ advanced laser technology to spot reduce fat deposits and set up a laser-tripwire perimeter to prevent the fat from sneaking back in.
