At Fit Slim of Michigan, the team’s preferred weight-loss tool is light. The center specializes in a red light therapy dubbed UltraSlim, whose beams of LED light trick subcutaneous fat cells into releasing their contents—without painful incisions or any known side effects. Afterward, the freed fat is digested naturally, slimming inches from the midsection, thighs, and chest. As the treatments contour physiques, they also boost collagen and elastin production, tightening skin and combating cellulite.

At Body Light, trained technicians harness the power of LED bulbs to keep their patients looking slim and youthful.

Honey and raw silk aren’t two things normally associated with a spa, but at Beauty Within, they’re key components to reaching beauty and relaxation. Honey-dew facials moisturize and gently exfoliate the skin, thanks to honey’s alpha-hydroxy acids and humectants. And raw silk comes to play during the garshana massage, an ancient massage technique from India. The massage therapist wears special gloves made of raw silk and other fibers that help boost circulation and oxygen flow. Other services at Beauty Within include slimming body wraps and body sculpting.
