"After a long and arduous tooth-filled day," Dr. Shiloh Lieberman writes, "I unwind at home by soaking in my custom-made, bicuspid shaped bathtub, then jumping in my molar-shaped bed and drifting off to sleep counting incisors jumping over dental floss." Such a unique and all-consuming love of dentistry is understandably necessary for a dentist who painstakingly combines 30 years of experience with top-of-the-line technology to treat visitors at his comprehensive practice. An active member in professional and philanthropic organizations, a researcher, and a university mentor who keeps school buildings' teeth bright, Dr. Lieberman tackles cosmetic and restorative dentistry from many angles in a comfortable office replete with complimentary beverages and snacks, and a DVD player and massage chair in each room. He's still passionate, however, about sports and art, and he's committed to community service, which he performs with charitable dental organization Crown Council.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles. Personal spa assistants are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment.
People don’t go to a deli to fight wrinkles, fine lines, and acne outbreaks. But at Youthful Trends, skincare apothecaries mix custom, natural, handmade body butters and beauty products behind a beauty deli. It's this smorgasbord of organic serums and creams that lays claim to the Earthworm Wrinkle Butter, which was praised on The Doctors for its anti-aging blend of green-tea extracts and secrets for fighting off early birds. In addition to tailored blends of fresh fruit and botanicals, aestheticians encourage glowing complexions with LED light, bronze bodies in beds equipped with personal sound systems, and lift moods with vitamin D-enriched lights.
