Manicures and pedicures serve as routine maintenance for busy limb endings by trimming nails and pushing cuticles as well as softening and polishing. The mani-pedi treatments eliminate unsightly issues such as nail chipping, ragged cuticles, and callused skin. The manicure includes nail buffing and polish, leaving nails smooth and shiny (an $18 value), and the one-hour Spa Club pedicure soothes the tougher calluses that result from being walked on all day (a $38 value), leaving your feet smoothed, exfoliated, and nail-shiningly refreshed. Today's deal also includes a yearlong membership ($25), which locks in discount rates at all three locations of The Spa Club for the duration of one 67,000-mph trip around a gigantic, flaming plasma orb.
The staff at Urban Retreat Spa & Salon believe that physical beauty begins with a healthy attitude.

In addition to beautifying services, Urban Retreat maintains the Whimsy Clothing Boutique, where stylists match shoppers to eclectic fashions.
A teacher overwhelmed with classroom tasks and student responsibilities; a 20-something recovering from the insecurities of teenage acne—Charlie Ward has served them both. Like many who write in his patient testimonials, this pair praises the master aesthetician's professional skill and personal kindness. "Having healthy habits, including good skincare," Charlie writes on his website, "[has] helped me enjoy [life] even more." Charlie pebbles his path to healthier, more vibrant skin with services that range from the technologically advanced photofacial treatment, which uses intense pulsed light to improve sun-damaged skin, to the holistic scrub-and-rub massages, which dose backs and bodies with salt crystals from the Great Salt Lake before hot towels and lotions cleanse and refresh. He also stays up-to-date on his industry's latest trends and technologies, writing on his blog about some of the latent effects of tattoos and new breakthroughs in heat-resistant makeup that prove ideal for soldiers fighting in war zones or chefs cooking in full-body snowsuits.
The soothing, brightly lit beauty spot boasts a professionally passionate staff that treats stressed-out soul sacks to high-quality, customized treatments. Boost your aerodynamics before the office bikini relay with a Brazilian wax, administered quickly and modestly, or bid adieu to mug whiskers with a lip ($12), cheek ($12), or nose ($7) wax. A swift session in underarm deforestation will devastate unwanted ecosystems ($15), and a full leg wax ($50) imbues gams with hairless confidence and smoother steps when scaling elevator shafts.
The aestheticians at Nailed! beautify corporeal extremities with a broad scope of salon services, and helped the boutique earn Salt Lake magazine's Best of the Beehive award. The 90-minute salon package begins with a scented sugar scrub and massage that eases feet before toenails are shaped, filed, and decorated with an even coat of polish. Steam, tone, and moisturize tired mugs with a rejuvenating mini facial using Sanitas skincare products, and blanch chompers with a teeth-whitening BleachBright treatment that renders a bright smile more effectively than gargling with lightning.
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.
