Amazing Tans, celebrating its 18-year anniversary, furnishes its interiors with a range of cutting-edge tanning beds and booths. The studio's Matrix, Sun Board, and Velocity beds filter out 98% of UVB rays—the rays responsible for reddening skin. Aside from tanning beds, Magic Tan and Mystic Tan standup tanning booths mist bodies in UV-free sunless tanning formulas, transforming pasty hues into even, natural-looking bronze tones. Tanning and skincare products are available for purchase, including Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Amazing Face bronzers and moisturizers.
The trained technicians at Absolute Beauty revitalize facescapes with artfully applied facial procedures utilizing sophisticated technologies. Microcurrent facials fight off fine lines with safe electrical impulses, tapping out orders to muscles in Morse code to firm up and increase the production of collagen, temporarily tightening the face after one treatment and building muscle memory after several more. Ultrasound facials shiver off dead cells with an exfoliating high-tech hum, ultimately opening up skin for rejuvenating hydration and moisturizing. In addition to treating faces to space-age pampering, Absolute Beauty supplements epidermal diets with vitamin C enzyme applications in every treatment.
Waxing is among the most economical of non-permanent hair-removal treatments, allowing you to stay smooth but still compete in a playoff legbeard competition when the need arises. Reshape or separate Siamese brows ($15) or clear your upper lip and chin ($10 each) to clear a smooth surface for better novelty-moustache adhesion. Or just skip the specifics and get a full face of water-wicking skin. Migrate away from the mug and take care of overly insulated arms ($35) or a pair of leggy walking arms ($70). Prepare for beach season with a Brazilian ($45+) or its front-sided cousin, the stomach wax ($15+).
Fashion trends are always evolving. That's why the dedicated stylists of The Parlor Salon undergo extensive additional training with top design houses such as Toni & Guy, Vidal Sassoon, and Wella to keep their skills sharp and their repertoire diverse enough to meet the styling needs of any client. The salon harnesses Bumble and bumble products to keep hair smooth when styling it into a new ‘do or to recall fond styling-chair memories during complimentary bang trims between appointments. Many of the stylists bear training in cutting-edge treatments, such as Liscio Japanese retexturing and Platinum Seamless hair extensions, which use high-quality Remy cuticle hair to create faultless extensions that are undetectable to the eye, the touch, and the carnival's "Hair must be this long to ride" signs. Whether clients come in for a quick wax or a full day of styling, coloring, and makeup services, they're free to savor a bevy of complimentary refreshments.
At Advanced Care Foot & Ankle, Dr. Craig Wilkes's 20 years of podiatric expertise are bolstered by a broad spectrum of diagnostic and restorative technologies that treat conditions such as plantar fasciitis, ankle sprains, fractures, bunions, and tendinitis. In addition to maintaining surgical privileges at some Mercy and Sutter hospitals in the Sacramento and Roseville area, Dr. Wilkes examines feet with x-rays and ultrasounds to construct a complete image of each patient's foot, uncovering pain-causing biomechanical faults or migratory ears. He then treats aches with as little invasiveness as possible, opting for simple solutions such as customized orthotics or noninvasive shock-wave therapy before drawing on his repertoire of reconstructive surgeries.
