Helmed by board-certified dermatological guru Dr. Adam Greenberg, the Dermatology Institute of Southwest Florida banishes bristles from all skin types with the gentle assistance of a high-energy long-pulse laser. Technicians wielding Candela GentleLase technology clear away brush from bikini shorelines, upper lips, underarms, and chins with less mess than waxing and less work than shaving. Beams of laser light penetrate deep into hair’s subsurface lairs, thwarting villainous fuzz by dismantling regrowth circuitry, destroying follicular blueprints, and foiling plans to cover the moon in a pompadour wig. Therapeutic heat pairs with dynamic surface-cooling technology to whisk away whiskers while eliminating discomfort, leaving skin smooth and unflustered.

The depilation artists at Brow Art 23's boutique produce carefully sculpted eyebrows and perform precision threading and waxing services. During their signature eyebrow-threading services, the boutique's technicians wield two threads over fuzzy body surfaces to pull out fine hairs or sculpt fuzz into neat shapes quickly and effortlessly. Their arsenal of eyebrow-pampering products also includes angled eyebrow brushes, stencils, and makeup to glam up bland brows and keep new looks fresh at home. Threading can also be done on other parts of the body besides the face, leaving any area smooth or remaining hair formed into the name Denise. The boutique also offers henna tattoos and eyelash extensions, rounding out its suite of beautifying services.
The massage therapist at Marjon the Salon reduces stress and eases body tension with calming or intensive one-hour massages. Patrons sip a refreshing complimentary mimosa, and the muscle-soothing maestro relaxes weary backs with Swedish techniques, including long, fluid strokes, kneading, and occasional tapping to communicate with nerve endings via Morse code. The Swedish style, designed to decrease anxiety and improve circulation, can be administered with a gentle or firm touch or with scarlet-hued gelatin fish. For a more powerfully focused massage experience, a deep-tissue massage finesses fascia with forceful pressure, targeting areas of chronic pain and knotted tension.
