The epidermal aces at Cosmetic & Laser MediSpa exfoliate skin and annihilate toxins for a vibrant visage. A wand-like microdermabrasion apparatus evicts the top tier of cells during 30–40 minute sessions. Session can blot out hyperpigmentation, fine lines, light acne scars, and leftover glitter.
Armed with an extensive selection of professional-strength glo therapeutics skincare products, The Face Place's licensed aesthetician, Kendra Pitner, combats signs of aging with hydrating facials and texture-transforming peels using lactic or glycolic acids. Pitner also cleans up features to draw attention to glowing skin by eradicating unwanted facial hair with Lycon wax and defining brows or lashes with a tinting process that convinces hairs to darken with a rousing 30-minute inspirational football speech.
Sun Tan City's specially designed devices bathe bodies in an even, bronze glow. The tanning beds ($9-$34) apply a delicate balance of UVA and UVB rays to create the fun-in-the-sun look, with varying session durations depending on the bed's level of intensity -- fast, faster, fastest, or instant. The VersaSpa Sunless Tanning System ($34) can provide a natural, even-tonal transformation without the use of UV rays. Standing upright in the VersaSpa booth, your body will be gently misted with either a clear or bronze solution, which will then be combined with an anti-aging moisturizing skin treatment. Each booth is scientifically designed to provide a breathe-easy treatment and features an exhaust system to send the lingering mist out while sealing in skin's new shade. Finally, after a few minutes in the comfort air-dry system, your body will be dry to the touch.
Between the bright-green walls of Beauty Hair Salon, clients must pick which body part to primp first. They might pluck a favorite color from the polish shelf before consulting with nail technician Alisa, who began her professional career at age 18. Her meticulous approach to mani-pedis and acrylics ensures that her appointments are never rushed. Alternatively, hairstylists are on hand to trim and color new ’dos in front of tall mirrors. In the salon's aesthetic area, waxing services strip away unwanted hair, facials brighten complexions, and massages relax shoulders more easily than attempts to turn shrugs inside out.
Lakisha Morgan wields shears, foil, extensions, and razors with equal ease as she styles men’s and women’s hair. Her work speaks for itself, leaving her to utter little more than a monosyllable in its praise. She offers some particularly special services, as well, such as natural hair extensions. She weaves together strands from two humans to create a single, cohesive look, much like tying two strongmen together by their mustache curls to create a super strongman.
The massage therapists at Milestone Massage & Spa welcome any curiosity about their profession, and go to great lengths to answer clients’ questions and put everyone at ease before 30- to 90-minute massage services.

The stable of therapists is well-versed in more than a dozen massage modalities, including Swedish, characterized by flowing strokes, hot stone, characterized by heated rocks, and aromatherapy, characterized by the soothing scent of french fries. The sessions, long or short, can yield a bevy of benefits that range from decreased anxiety to improved concentration. In addition to massage, the technicians expunge toxins with seaweed and kelp body wraps.
