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.
Licensed skin therapist Casey Durrett draws from her background in clinical aesthetics and education in skincare to heal and rejuvenate precious integumentary tissue. Ably standing alone at the helm, Durrett takes on all the responsibilities of her office by herself, tending to guests one by one without the need for receptionists or other therapists. Each guest relaxes in the enchanting solitude of the spa all on their own, free to contemplate or engage in conversation with the Japanese-inspired lanterns and floor lamps of paper and varnished wood, or the fragrant flowers and towering purple orchid. Gentle volleys of diamonds slough away dead skin cells during microdermabrasion treatments, and specially-formulated chemical peels and downtime-free cold-laser therapy restore visages to a youthful, consistent complexion.
From within salon-cum-spa Studio 12, licensed massage therapist Kimberly Collins-Davis makes it her business to deliver rest and relaxation to all.

She rounds out her soft tissue work with services focused on the body's largest organ, the skin. She scrubs, wraps, and rejuvenates dermises with everything from coffee to brown sugar, leaving her clients feeling better and smelling fresh baked.
