Equipped with bulb-powered tanning beds, spray-tanning booths, and airbrush-savvy aestheticians, Sunlounge Tanning Studio & Spa imbues patrons with golden radiance and rejuvenates skin with a full complement of spa treatments. Four different tanning beds house varying configurations of skin-bronzing bulbs that evenly match skin tone to that of a favorite celebrity or gingersnap cookie. VersaSpa spray booths coat occupants in a mist of one of three tanning hues, which cling to the skin for up to 10 days, and nearby aestheticians and massage therapists can knead away tension from newly bronzed skins. The sustainably designed studio, lined with bamboo walls, draws some of its energy from solar panels.
The Jenny Craig Program provides people with nutritious, heart-healthy foods, a personal consultant, and a plan specially tailored to helping them attain their desired weight. Clients meet with a Jenny Craig consultant to assess their current eating habits and to create a scheme for shedding superfluous pounds. Then, the week-one planned menu unfolds like a paper airplane made of phyllo dough (items in blue are included in the plan, and orange items are recommended additions). A sample day starts with the Breakfast Scramble, a mound of scrambled egg whites and turkey ham topped with melty low-fat mozzarella and served over diced red potatoes. Lunch is beef chow mein, which is packed with vegetables (broccoli, carrots, bell peppers, and rooglebetas) and remains unpacked with calories (it has only 220). Dinner brings the comfort of macaroni and cheese and tops it off with a cookie for dessert.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Jeffrey Ulery, the teams at Sun Lounge Spa and Whole Body Health harness the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumference by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of waterslides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time.
American Laser Center's certified technicians use an FDA-approved laser that uses high-intensity light to quickly and painlessly reduce unwanted whiskers. Appropriate for men and women of most skin types, the laser zeros in on the hair follicle itself without harming the surrounding skin, like a Soviet submarine ordered to locate and eradicate rogue sea monkeys without damaging the delicate ecosystem. Depending on the degree of hairiness, many clients need around six treatments to permanently keep hair at bay, making today's Groupon an excellent foundation toward a super-slick skin surface.
At Natural Beauty Clinique, trained technicians contour the body and tighten the skin with noninvasive radio-frequency technology. The oscillating waves heat tissue beneath the skin to coax the fluids and lunch money out of fat cells. The technology is also used for anti-aging procedures, such as face and neck lifts, thanks to its galvanizing effect on collagen production.
