Anyone who's completed four full Ironman triathlons must know a thing or two about staying in shape. Add to that the fact that Dr. Brent Larsen is board certified by the American Board of Obesity Medicine and has studied the field since 2010, and it's clear why people trust his clinic to provide weight-loss and aesthetic services at SLC Med Spa. The clinic's weight-loss methods are based on scientific testing of the client's metabolism and body composition, a practice that allows the staff of certified personal trainers to draw up meal plans and recommend supplements with greater accuracy than if they were basing their advice on a horoscope stained with meat sauce. On occasion, CoolSculpting provides a machine-assisted boost by crystallizing fat cells with targeted cooling. Peels and injectables such as Botox and Dysport put the finishing touches on complexions as they smooth away blemishes and iron out wrinkles.
Although clients are often there for their own good, the center doesn't feel like somewhere you'd visit as a chore. As guests await their treatments, they watch a flat-screen TV in a waiting room replete with leather furniture, earthen tones, and wood-paneled walls that reflect handsomely off the burnished tile floor.

Cuticle caretaker Heidi Bishop at Star 21 Salon indulges clients with a 90-minute mani-pedi that relaxes the mind and rejuvenates the fingers and toes. At the pedi station, a warm bath soaks feet, softening skin for a scrub that scours inseams and heels to remove calluses earned during barefoot treadmill contests. Next, Heidi’s deft digits push and clip cuticles before applying a rich moisturizer and a coat of OPI polish. During the manicure, Heidi pampers hands with the same regimen of soaking, shaping, and polishing.
