The founders of Soleil Tans believe that a trip to the tanning salon should feel like a mini-vacation—a welcome respite from the stress of work, the chaos of exams, or the company of a pet dog who just learned how to play the theme to Three's Company. They've packed their sleek, modern salons with powerful standup booths and tanning beds, outfitted with amenities such as music players, air conditioners, and adjustable air showers. There's even specialty beds designed to target upper bodies, faces, and legs.
The salons are staffed by sunless tanning specialists boasting extensive training and experience in the art of spray tans. They airbrush skin with a UV-free Norvell formula, customizing applications to accommodate varying skin types and desired looks. The staffers can also equip clients with professional skincare products that help moisturize skin, as well as teeth-whitening solutions that work to brighten smiles during UV-tanning sessions.
A host of high-tech tanning beds, such as the Sungate, can bronze skin in less than 20 minutes. Certified staffers help guide clients to the tanning option that best suits their skin. A UV-free Magic Tan option can also supply a streak-free tan in minutes.
Brazilian-trained waxing experts do away with unwanted hair inside Jaira's Waxing Salon. The staff tackles fuzz on men and women in locations such as faces, backs, legs, and livers. The salon pops with decorative touches that include bright red accent walls and zebra-print chairs in black-and-white and red-and-white color combos.

According to Vein Medic, an estimated one in four people suffer from some form of leg-vein disorder during their lives. These varicose and spider veins can be painful, and even if they aren't, they can make people feel uncomfortable with their appearance. So Vein Medic's physicians, including board-certified Dr. Michael Kassouf, who has been eradicating unwanted veins for more than 25 years, fight them with a variety of treatments.
Two of the most popular treatments include sclerotherapy and endovenus laser therapy. During sclerotherapy treatments, doctors inject the unwanted veins with an FDA-approved sclerosing solution, which causes the veins to collapse, die, and eventually fade from view. Endovenus laser treatments also collapse veins, though they require a laser fiber to be inserted into the vein. Both minimally invasive treatments can help patients feel more confident walking around in public in shorts, dresses, and figure-skating costumes in a few weeks.
Diva Salon sets clients at ease with comforting touches as stylists go to work performing a full range of services, including eyebrow threading, waxing, facials, and haircuts, color, and keratin treatments. The newly renovated studio's bright red and black color theme sends off a funky vibe, occupying clients' eyes as they lounge in the oversize armchairs at each style station. Washing stations feature padded, reclining chairs, which let clients dip their locks under warm water while stylists sprinkle heads with products from Chi, Biosilk, and Shahnaz Husain, which are preferable to the tomato fertilizer often used at lesser establishments.
The beauty pros at Shiny Luk keep the hair on their clients? heads styled and primped, while making sure unwanted fuzz on bodies remains in check with a full menu of waxing and threading services. Because waxing and threading techniques remove hair by the root, they offer longer-lasting results than shaving or snipping each hair with a cigar cutter.
