Since its publishing debut in 2007, Shelby County Life has been chronicling local happenings with photos and articles about the people and settings of Shelby County. As the only full-color publication in the county, the magazine zeros in on the meaning of community and the properties of the rainbow.

Keep up with the happenings in the vicinity from the coziness of the couch while the postman reliably delivers 12 issues a year, from the snows of January through the mistletoe monsoons of December.
Navy vets Dr. Jan J. Weisberg, M.D., and Melanie Weisberg team up to fight dermal discoloration with PCA products and skin-evening microdermabrasion. During the noninvasive 30-minute treatment, a certified beauty booster gently cleanses and exfoliates the visage to uncover the fresh face or pile of gold coins below. After the skin scrubbing escorts dead cells off of the premises, a moisturizing peel works to deeply hydrate arid skinscapes. Patients can leave the Weisbergs' office with smoother and brighter skin, and may help diminish the looks of fine lines, scars, and cheekbone tattoos.
Unlike Daddy Warbucks, the robot sent from the future to protect Little Orphan Annie and her signature dimples, the techs at VelaSpa make it their mission to eradicate dimples onsite. Armed with the FDA-approved VelaShape hand piece, they harness infrared light and radio frequencies to scatter and smooth cellulite. In addition to their bread-and-butter treatment, the med spa undoes the malicious work of genetics and environmental factors with sublative skin rejuvenation, a 20-minute facial treatment that uses laser light to help decrease the signs of sun damage and pigment irregularities.
While massage is an indulgent experience, it can also be a regular part of routine wellness care. To provide comprehensive care and meet specific needs, Healing Touch performs more than 10 modalities of massage. That includes everything from the deeply relaxing Swedish massage to a chronic pain reduction treatment. Their team is also accomplished at pregnancy massage and injury treatments.
Dr. Tom Haas might be the one examining clients at Imaage Cosmetic Surgery Center, but there’s a chance they might recognize his face as well. The board-certified plastic surgeon has made multiple television appearances, been featured in numerous magazine articles, and offered advice in several educational cosmetic surgery videos. Readers of LEO Weekly named Dr. Haas the area’s best plastic surgeon in 2009, 2010 and 2011, and the center also earned the publication's best spa award in 2011. The state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery suite puts client satisfaction first, offering a discrete exit for patient privacy and a comfortable waiting area for loved ones. Most procedures can be performed under Twilight anesthesia, which reduces undesirable side effects such as grogginess and mid-session snoring. The center's registered nurse and licensed aestheticians also perform a variety of nonsurgical services, including laser facial treatments, peels, and body-contouring VelaShape sessions.

They use tools to craft new hairdos with salon services, spa treatments, and nail transformations. All services take place in a newly renovated, private spa space characterized by vanity lighting, framed artwork, and potted plants that clap their leaves to help clients feel welcome.
