Owned and operated by former model Darlene Stiles, Heavenly Glows provides UV-free tanning to bestow color-deprived epidermises with a bronze blessing. Welcome spaghetti-strap season with a subtle glow or dark sheen after a single spray session with a certified sunless specialist, who adjusts the treatment based on each client's preferences. Pasty exteriors are coated with an FDA-approved, organic solution appropriate for all ages, which is absorbed into the skin to induce pleasing pigmentation and, in some cases, uncontrollable giggling during performance reviews. Perfect for best-shoulder contests and Nape Day, Heavenly Glows provides a long-lasting, natural-looking tan without the harmful side effects of nuclear-fusion-based methods, and suggests these results-enhancing skin-prep tips to ready each client for his or her compliment-grabbing hue enhancement.
The licensed nail techs at Koi Nail Spa work hard to pamper clients in a thoroughly sanitary and stress-free environment. Begin a 30-minute pedicure with the embrace of a gloriously pleasant hot towel and a sweetly soothing chocolate or peppermint mud-mask application. An exfoliating foot scrub repairs dried-out leg endings and prepares them for an extensive double-length massage, which softens soles from heel to toe. After the finishing touches have been applied, patrons leave Koi energized and invigorated, ready to run a marathon, complete a walk-a-thon, or watch a telethon without falling asleep face-first in a bowl of popcorn.
Led by board-certified plastic surgeon Jorge Gonzalez, MD, Elase Medical Spas' team rejuvenates clients with medical-grade laser procedures, skin treatments, and cosmetic injectables. As an academy for laser technicians, Elase unleashes an arsenal of advanced laser equipment upon a host of epidermal conditions. Sagging visages spring back to a more youthful state after laser skin tightening with a Candela ND:YAG laser, which helps rebuild the collagen and elastin scaffolding that keeps skin supple and plump, and supports the body's crew of construction guys. Laser hair removal eradicates unwanted strands, VelaShape helps firm up physiques with radio-frequency energy, and vein therapy reduces the appearance of veins on the face and legs.
Elase also offers treatments that tackle problem areas without a light show, such as cosmetic injectables—including Botox, Radiesse, and Restylane—which relax or plump up wrinkled areas. Alternatively, medical facials swathe skin in clinical-grade salves selected according to each skin's type and astrological sign.
Though the bright colors and mod furniture of South Beach Tanning’s numerous salons may tempt clients to kick back for hours, that’s not the staff’s goal. Instead, they strive to provide swift, hassle-free tans that get clients out the door quickly to enjoy the day. Each of the chain’s salons boasts a floor plan that is twice as large as the average tanning salon, which increases the likelihood that a bed will be free and therefore reduces annoying wait times. Guests can choose from five tiers of UV beds, whose successive levels beget increased bulb output and more amenities to imbue swifter, more comfortable tans. For a UV-free glow, customers can opt to hop in the salon’s automated VersaSpa booths, which guide jets of pigmented formula from head to toe in only 46 seconds to grant a look as summery as boat sails composed of stitched-together bikinis.
Hand & Stone's licensed staff of aestheticians and muscle therapists relaxes ligaments and purifies pores with a variety of massages (a $79.95 value/session) and signature facials (a $79.95 value/session). Monthly kneading sessions may increase alertness, relieve anxiety, and improve one's attitude toward segway cops who don't use turn signals. The season of stress-busting marks three custom massages on your corporeal calendar, offering a choice of Swedish, deep tissue, sports, prenatal, and other styles to suit variously beleaguered bods.
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. Each machine is designed for a specific service, which makes it the ultimate expert and keeps it from developing the ability to cry. A week atop the glowing Velocity high-pressure bed keeps skin bronze three to four times longer than basic beds (a $25 value per session) and the Mystic Tan sprays skeletal wrappers with a one-week luster. Complete the corporeal overhaul with three 20-minute Luminous photofacials, which employ an army of gels, lights, and tiny Shetland ponies to renew collagen growth and firm skin.
