As a skin-cancer survivor, the owner of Boho Mobile Tans wanted to promote healthy tanning, reduce the incidents of skin cancer, and give people a safer way to garner a sun-kissed glow. So when spray technicians arrive at clients' locations, they arrive with solutions that contain no fragrances, preservatives, or harsh chemicals such as parabens, which may irritate the skin and possibly cause cancer. The product produces a even, natural bronzed tan. The company also supports cancer research and treatment by donating 5% of all sales to the American Cancer Society.
Board-certified internist Dr. Steve Fabrizio, MD, oversees the staff at Premier Medical Weight Loss and Aesthetics. His efforts to tackle obesity throughout the past decade have given him expertise in dieting, exercise, and medications, which supplements the aesthetic treatments at his medspa. On the spa side, Botox injections work to erase the lines and creases that appear after years of folding your face up into your wallet, and lasers zap away unwanted hair and spider veins.
In 2003, beauty expert Reema Khan noticed just how many patrons of her Chicago salon sought expert brow-shaping services. Reema decided to open up Shapes Brow Bar, and since its inception, it has now expanded into a franchise with more than 75 locations nationwide. In addition to brow services, clients can opt for makeup applications, facial treatments, and body waxing services.

Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
We focus on "healthy inside and outside" since we are a MEDICAL spa not just a Fru Fru kind of place. We don't do nails and we don't sale cosmetics. We help our clients build a foundation for healthy, fresh, long-term beautiful skin. Even the most unattractive person looks better and feels more confident when they can put their best face forward. Our society judges us in the first three minutes we are visible to another human. Great skin says I am conscientious about my appearance and my health.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
The results we see and the ability to help people build self-confidence.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
Thinking you can "paint on a bad canvas". You cannot put even great cosmetics (make-up) on skin that is rough, uneven, dry, oily or just not healthy. The radiance created by great skin shines through even the cheapest make-up.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Our Rejuvenating Facial is customized to meet the needs of each individual client. We analyze your skin for texture, pigment and other issues that could be health related. THEN we advise our clients what can be done to correct the issue and to maintain great skin on a long term basis. "Going to a MEDICAL spa is like going to the GYM: if you only go once the benefits are limited, but if you go regularly the results are lifelong".
The private rooms at Tan-Tastic Tanning yield many paths to acquiring richer pigmentation. Among the most popular of these are bronze-, silver-, and platinum-level tanning beds that imbue skin with varying degrees of UV light to ensure a smooth and even tone. Bronze beds illume bodies and faces with separate tanners, silver beds cradle client in an ergonomic acrylic base that includes a ventilation system and mp3 plug-in, and platinum beds boast high-pressure bulbs and shoulder tanners. Just off to the side of its more traditional siblings, a VersaSpa spray-tan booth burnishes skin with a UV-free mist until it achieves the rich, bronze hue of a deep-fried garden sculpture. At the salon’s front desk, lotions and elixirs from Swedish Beauty and Australian Gold mingle with blends from Devoted Creations, such as a skin-firming aromatherapy formula with anticellulite agents and white-birch extract.
Studded with vibrant violet walls and informational charts on the skeletal and muscular systems, Risner Chiropractic and Wellness Center’s decor—like its services—aims to help patrons feel at ease and better informed about their body. Its chiropractic adjustments, nutritional and exercise counseling, and massage-therapy services rework misaligned spines, tense muscles, and out-of-shape bodies to help clients without using prescription drugs.
