SVS Vision Center?s founders opened their first shop in Sterling Heights, Michigan, in 1974 to help the community clear up its vision. But even these optical gurus never foresaw their humble business expanding to more than 60 locations sprawled across 8 states. Today, each shop continues the tradition of ensuring ocular health and crystalline sight, beginning with exams from seasoned optometrists. Afterward, patients head to the optical dispensary, where they try on frames by Coach, Tiffany, Nike, Versace, or Ray-Ban. The staff then fits the stylish selection with polarized and scratch-protected prescription lenses to help guests read books clearly or see a charging moose from a distance. Most of SVS Vision Center?s frames can also hold sunglass lenses as well, eliminating squinting during summer months and tropical vacations.
The sounds of stretch-induced groans and enthusiastic high-fives echo throughout the workout rooms at New World Fitness, an all-purpose facility that opens its doors to members of any age and fitness level. Though each of the gym’s group fitness classes blends a results-oriented workout with a healthy dose of social interaction, the similarities tend to end there. Toning workouts such as the Ab Blaster target core muscles with short, intense exercises—a marked contrast to the relaxed stretches of a yoga session that slowly eases tension out of overworked limbs. Feet lead the way through aerobics classes based on the movements of martial arts and dance. The gym’s indoor pool hosts an aquatic-therapy program alongside joint-friendly Aquafit classes, after which guests can dry off with a sprint around the indoor track.
Relaxation is both a concept and a destination at Soma Health & Fitness, where sleek wooden floors are bathed in the sunbeams streaming in from symmetrical skylights. Here, visitors steep selves in soothing services such as massage therapy and physiotherapy, which pairs clients with certified professionals for one-on-one treatments that tackle movement difficulties with postural correction, muscle stimulation, and ultrasound treatments to seek out cursive injury reports spelled out in knotted tendons. Rehabilitative kinesiology combined with yoga and cardio fitness classes in the fully-equipped gym boost clients' cardiovascular health and muscle tone while providing an outlet for emotional renewal.
Go gunning for insurgent hair in your choice of the following locations: chin and lip, sideburns, underarms, bikini line, both sides of the neck, lower arms, or shoulders. A one-time $85 fee will grant you an upgrade for lower-leg treatments. Troy Laser Center's hair treatments are the last and best line of defense against the constant threat of delinquent follicles drunk on store-brand shampoo and hate. The center uses the intimidatingly named CoolGlide long-pulse Nd:YAG 1064 nm laser, featuring a longer wave of light, large spot size, and built-in copper cooling tip, which simultaneously lessens damage to the surrounding skin while providing a deeper penetration for more effective hair removal. The CoolGlide excels at treating both light- and dark-colored skin, including a-spectrum tones created in the Hulk Hogan Uber-Tan Chamber.
Specializing in family, cosmetic, and orthodontic dental care, Bright Side's dozen dentists and seven hygienists treat the tusks of both mature mouths and nervous children alike. Each dentist begins by examining their patients' mouth for any obvious abnormalities, such as extra tongues and molar fires. Next, a series of x-rays delves deeper to expose any cavities, tumors, gum infections. Finally, a meticulous cleaning gives the heave-ho to any tartar and plaque buildup, clearing the way for future generations of inevitable meal remnants. After the last brush stroke is struck, you'll leave Bright Side Dental with a smile bright enough to melt hearts, including your own, so be careful around mirrors.
