Nevaeh Medical Spa's medical director, Sandy Peters, is a board-certified nurse practitioner with a masters degree in acute care, a credential she's put to use as a nurse in the United States Army. Sandy spent 14 months overseas, tending to soldiers during the current war effort. Upon her return, she took something she realized in the military?that there's a connection between healthcare and self-esteem?and turned it into a practice. Namely, her thriving med spa.
At the spa, Sandy and her team ply patients with a variety of confidence-boosting treatments. Velashape sessions, for instance, slim circumferences with non-invasive radio-frequency waves and beams of infrared light. Botox and other beauty injections, on the other hand, smooth wrinkles and fine lines. The team also offers laser hair removal, skin tightening, and host of skincare products from brands such as Obagi.
The staffers at Light Space Healing Center can restore you without a single touch, or so says the list of benefits of red-light therapy, a regimen that speeds up healing time and polishes the skin with 30-minute stints under infrared lights. Joining the light-based remedy are a bevy of other touchless services—theta chambers send the mind into a meditative state with microcurrents, light, and sound, and ultrasonic facials use ultrasound waves to heal and firm the skin. Specialists take a hands-on approach to body refinement with Synergie treatments, which smooth away cellulite through deep mechanical massage. Classic facials and massage services lavish clients with old-fashioned pampering, much like a relaxing soak in a butter churn.
At Zen Massage, relaxation sets in long before patrons recline on one of its plush massage tables. Meticulously arranged by the resident feng shui master, century-old paintings, votives, and undulating colored accent lights wash over visitors' senses with a meditative calm. Inside private treatment rooms, solo or tandem therapists care for weary muscles using the deep kneads and therapeutic stretches of their medically informed proprietary technique. In-room aromatherapy and Audiophile sound systems, meanwhile, create a soothing atmosphere, further enhanced by complimentary flowering teas or Olympic dismounts from a top-mounted ashiatsu bar.
Nationally certified Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Bunn draws upon his background in sports and exercise physiology to treat chronic pain with spinal adjustments, homeopathic injections, and massage therapy. After his oldest son was diagnosed with Type I diabetes, the Ogden native turned to techniques practiced around the globe in Europe, Africa, and the Republic of Minerva in order to help clients with serious health conditions live longer, pain-free lives.
He also believes that patients are their optimum selves when they both feel good and look good, which is why Skyline Clinic bolsters beauty with aesthetic services. These include age-spot reduction, wrinkle-blasting treatments, and VelaSmooth lipolaser sessions, which use electrical-optical synergy to flatten flabby deposits instead of giant rolling pins.
The staff at Urban Retreat Spa & Salon believe that physical beauty begins with a healthy attitude. While cultivating a positive vibe inside a comfortable spa setting, they offer a full range of services that use cutting-edge techniques for skincare, body waxing, and nail treatments. Massages in a number of modalities, including pregnancy, hot-stone, and deep-tissue, relax muscles, and laser treatments—including skin rejuvenation and hair removal—show off the spa's high-tech equipment. In addition to beautifying services, Urban Retreat maintains the Whimsy Clothing Boutique, where stylists match shoppers to eclectic fashions.
Several years after graduating from Emory University's School of Medicine, Dr. Justin Johnson returned home and opened Utah Eye & Facial Plastic Surgery. There, he and his staff specialize in surgical and nonsurgical procedures for the face, such as eyebrow lifts and chemical peels. Moreover, they can help throw Father Time's hound dog off your scent with Juvederm, Restylane, and other anti-aging injectables.
