Professionally trained in the art of ultraviolet light, the staff at smartsweat by Aruba Sunspa is full of experts when it comes to sunless tanning and infrared saunas. Armed with an array of lie-down tanning beds that range in intensity, technicians work with each guest to ensure that they tan safely based on their skin type and the extent to which they wish to mock ancient sun gods. In addition to the beds, techs also transform alabaster skinscapes into bronzed masterpieces with a variety of spray-tanning services. During these treatments, they douse skin in a steady stream of instantly drying solutions that adhere to superficial proteins in the skin and downshift the hues. Beyond tanning services, the studio also helps guests detoxify, ease pain, and boost weight-loss programs with their namesake smartsweat infrared-saunas, which send beams of heat energy deep into skin to help mend a range of bodily issues.
LA Bliss Spa's staff soothe tired skin and frayed nerves by providing a friendly environment where clients can let go of every concern except their need for pampering. Skilled aestheticians perfect skin with a menu of facials that includes custom exfoliation and pore-cleaning variations. Facials use products that diminish signs of aging such as lines and pigmentation in shades not in compliance with the official human color wheel. To purge the body of stress, the spa offers a number of different massage styles, as well as mud wraps and detoxifying body scrubs that are designed to provide unique results. Massage therapists unfurl tension and nourish frames with soothing oils while skin care professionals at the spa use Dermalogica products. Therapists also utilize the healing properties of heated stones to relieve muscle discomfort and release endorphins back into the wild.
As its name suggests, Changes Salon is a place of transformation. At salon chairs, clients' tresses morph into bold, chic styles with dimension-adding color treatments, from highlights to ombre color. In addition to hair, the salon's aestheticians specialize in tending to skin and hair on the face. These beauty experts refresh pores with oxygen facials, exfoliate with microdermabrasion treatments, and wax the eyebrows, lips, chin, and other areas.

The staff at Rebecca's Face, Body, & Soul pampers clients from head to toe with facials, massages, and waxing services. Eyelash extensions add drama and length to natural lashes, and reiki treatments recalibrate energy levels better than a nap in a battery charger.
