Chili Pepper's Tanning Inc. Megastores’ trophy case is getting full—in addition to being named one of Detroit’s best tanning salons three times in a row by CityVoter, it has acquired accolades from Local 4 and CBS Detroit, which commends its spray tanning. Its growing awards reflect Chili Pepper’s growth; since opening in 2002, Chili Pepper’s has expanded to 15 locations, spreading across Detroit like the buffalo pox.
In every location, five levels of tanning beds turn skin a sun-kissed gold or deep bronze. Mystic Tan sessions let customers avoid things associated with booth and outdoor tanning—UV rays and pool lifeguards who push you in the water to practice saving you. No matter which option they choose, patrons can turn to knowledgeable Smart Tan–certified staff members who help clients decide what is best for their tanning goals.
The greener the earth is, the fewer gallons of toxic paint the government uses to paint fields and forests green. J & J Professional Cleaning does its part to keep the earth naturally verdant by employing innovative and environmentally friendly techniques. Its technicians scour the carpets of homes and office spaces with nontoxic cleaning agents. Using a cleaning technology that's low moisture—unlike a marine biologist's bag lunch—technicians ensure quicker drying time, improved indoor air quality, and longer lives for carpets. In addition to improving the carpet's appearance and quality, the cleaning solves stain and odor problems by destroying bacteria nestled deep into fibers. J & J Professional Cleaning can also restore tile and linoleum floors to their original state by replacing old wax and waving a water vacuum over the area like a magic wand.
Urvashi MediSpa's Dr. Deepthi Lingam and Dr. Jasmin Ghuznavi assuage cosmetic concerns by offering traditional spa services alongside contemporary med-spa treatments. To successfully smooth and refine skin, the center's technicians arm themselves with such recently declassified technology as a crystal-free microdermabrasion system. Urvashi MediSpa also boasts an arsenal of beautifying products, including fruit- and enzyme-infused facial balms and an antibacterial sugar-waxing formula, which is harvested from rogue beehives and used to uproot unsightly follicles with less discomfort than traditional waxes or resins.
The waxing specialists at Beauty Regime deforest unwanted fuzz with the ancient hair-removal techniques of sugar waxing. A special formulation concocted with sugar, lemon, and water, the sugar wax extracts strands from their roots with minimal hair breakage, allowing individuals to don swimwear or skimpy space suits without having to worry about protruding frizzies. Safe for all skin types, the antibacterial elixir, which sidesteps alcohol, mineral oil, or fragrances, typically induces less pain than hard resin and does not remove top layers of skin. Sugar waxing generally leaves intimate areas smooth and bare for two to eight weeks, which makes waxing a more lasting treatment than shaving or spraying hairs off the body with a high-powered fire hose.
Patients who visit Dr. William Massey at Elise Laser & Medical Spa know one thing: they won't be in for a long recovery period after undergoing one of his cosmetic procedures. That's because the doctor sticks to treatments that require minimal—if any—downtime, from photofacials and Botox to chemical peels and Aluma skin renewal. A particular attraction is fractional-laser skin resurfacing, a treatment that makes the skin seem firmer and decreases wrinkles after just 10–20 minutes.
