Drawing on her medical background, Marlene Fortney transmits youthful brightness back into clients' features with skin-refining treatments in an intimate spa setting, located inside Conter Fleurette a Beauty Affair Day Spa.

The walls of Wish Boutique & Salon are the exact shade of a beach, which is appropriate because their assortment of tanning beds, airbrush spray tans, and tanning products services imbue guests with the same sunshiny glow they?d get from an actual beach. But apart from their UV and UV-free tanning services, their rooms shelter a red light therapy bed designed to ameliorate wrinkles, burns, and acne. The touched-up feeling resulting from those 20-minute sessions spill over into the manicure-pedicure area, where nail techs adorn tips with durable coats of shellac and glittering Rockstar colors.
