At Hollywood Tans, epidermises are enlivened with a special alchemic process known as Tanetics. In application, Tanetics employs the expertise of an in-house skin specialist, who considers each customer’s tanning goal, skin tone, and skin sensitivity before helping to craft an ideal spectrum-shifting regimen. Five 10-minute bouts inside Hollywood Tans’ vertical Hybrid booth leave the pelt polished with a 360-degree base tan that's preferable for afternoons at the beach or scandalous nights at the laundromat. Those interested in a UV-free tegument transformation can also opt for five glow-level to medium-level Mystic spray tans ($19–$25) that de-pale pasty pigment with misty coats of bronze that can last five–seven days. Grab today’s Groupon to restore your skin’s vibrancy and enjoy the added satisfaction of doing your part to put the sun out of business.
Skin Alive and its aesthetician school, Mequon Thiensville School of Esthetics, are devoted to the study and practice of skincare. Clients can choose to visit the hands-on student-learning center for aesthetic services performed by students under instructor supervision, or head to the Skin Alive spa for services performed by a licensed professional. Both offer basic beauty services, such as facials, peels, and waxing, but the licensed aestheticians at Skin Alive can also slough off dead skin cells with diamond-tip microdermabrasion, rejuvenate skin with lasers, and vanquish unwelcome hair with laser hair-removal treatments that leave skin smoother than a cue ball smothered in olive oil.
Both soundproof and lightproof, the fiberglass capsules at Float Spa San Diego simulate a world without gravity, and more importantly, a world without distractions. Eight hundred pounds of Epsom salts intermixed with warm water?heated between 94 and 95 degrees?fill the tanks. As a result, clients lose all sense of external stimuli, ultimately leading to unmatched relaxation and a greater empathy toward rubber duckies. The water, harmonized with the skin's temperature, erases the sensation of touch, and the salt allows the body, including the head, to literally float without effort. Researchers have given this phenomenon the moniker REST, meaning Restricted Environmental Stimulation Technique, as it has been shown to effectively reduce the brain's workload and enhance the mind and body's ability to relax and self-heal.
At Float Spa San Diego, the capsules are located inside private rooms equipped with showers for use before and after the session. Appointments kick off with 10 minutes of soothing music before all sounds and stimuli are shut off for 50 minutes of supreme silence and relaxation. With their modesty guarded by the locked rooms, clients are free to enjoy their flotation clad in a bathing suit, scuba-diving gear, or, for even less restriction, without any clothing at all.
Club Reduce of San Diego’s staff works closely with clients to help them lose weight and improve their lifestyles. Health services range from basic medical assessments to the latest body treatments, such as cellulite-reducing wraps. Each custom weight-loss program begins with a one-on-one consultation and computerized health assessment, which can uncover barriers to well-being, including high blood pressure and spontaneous hiccups.
The staff of JenniferAnn Spa & Wellness Center have devised a holistic service menu that aims to address physical, emotional, and spiritual woes. This mission is most prevalent in the selection of massages—in this single menu, one may find craniosacral treatments that calm the nervous system and spiritual healing sessions that guide the soul alongside classic Swedish and deep-tissue massages.
Natural therapies and assorted vowels sprout up throughout the menu as well, including pumpkin and sugar cane peels that estheticians use to harvest fresh complexions. In the salon, stylists straighten unruly texture with natural keratin treatments or build curl with organic perms.
When life gets harried, we ask our bodies to carry the load. At Essential Rituals, clients come in to pamper their long-suffering frames with a host of restorative body services. Massage therapists relieve stress with custom massages. Aestheticians use SunFX spray-tanning equipment to cloak the skin with all-natural color. They erase signs of age with microdermabrasion, whiten teeth, and jump-start the metabolism with infrared body wraps. The Essential Rituals crew also offers whole body vibration treatments to help strengthen stabilizing muscles, aid injury recovery, and mix up recently purchased buckets of paint.
