At Chisholm Trail Dental Health, Dr. Mike Asay takes the time to get to know his patients and develop personalized treatment plans before performing any general-dentistry or cosmetic procedures, such as fitting patients for Invisalign, installing veneers, or diagnosing periodontal disease. The office’s reception area contrasts with its modern dental technologies, disarming patient anxieties with a rustic charm. A rough-hewn wooden coffee table, Native American-styled chairs, and cozy sofa flank a bearskin rug that sits before an in-wall wood fireplace when it’s not out catching salmon.
The aestheticians at Healthcare 4 Her combine medical know-how with classic relaxation techniques in a tranquil spa environment, beautifying clients from head to toe using technologically enhanced and traditional spa treatments. Licensed laser technicians stop fuzzies in their tracks and prevent future hair growth with laser hair removal. Professional skin pamperers dole out five types of facials to exfoliate visages with microdermabrasion, clear complexions with fruit enzymes, and purge pores with menacing eviction notices. Massage therapists relax clients with four different massage styles, taking cues from venerated massage traditions and modern aromatherapy and kneading techniques to melt away muscle tension.
Both skin and smiles glow after leaving Waterloo Tan, a salon that collects five levels of tanning beds, VersaSpa spray-tan booths, and teeth-whitening equipment. During traditional tanning sessions, UV rays warm reclining bodies, beckoning golden hues and melting handcuffs made of muenster. Clients seeking sunless tans can visit an experienced airbrush artist or bask in a standup booth, where organic mist swathes the physique in a natural-looking shade that also minimizes the appearance of fine lines.
