Under the expert guidance of a board-certified physician, the staff of Casa de Belleza Medical Spa performs treatments that range from relaxing to results-oriented. A massage therapist can use warm bamboo sticks to promote better circulation and break up muscle knots during a bamboo-fusion massage. To combat signs of aging, the doctor offers sclerotherapy vein treatments, Botox and dermal fillers, and prescription Latisse, and helps to revamp physiques from the inside out with custom fitness and nutrition programs. The team also includes a makeup expert who, according to the med spa's website, has worked with celebrities and models such as the design team of Kimora Lee Simmons and Yoanna House of America's Next Top Model.
The center fosters a calm atmosphere where fragrant aromatherapy treatments soothe the senses. To preserve the spa's tranquil environs, the staff asks that clients silence their cell phones, use quiet tones of voice, and remove all plosive consonants from spoken words.

Open seven days a week, King Nails staffs a squad of experienced nail nurturers to keep finger and toe shields shapely and shiny. During the rose exfoliation pedicure, a comforting chair massage targets tense muscles while the salon’s friendly phalangists clean, trim, and buff calcium-rich toe tips. Rose-exfoliation gel rids dermises of skin cells that have died, dried out, or stopped trying, and healing lavender warm-sensation lotion adds another comforting tactile touch. An application of your choice of polish leaves your piggies ready for open-toed sandals and invisible work boots. The salt and sugar glow manicure beautifies finger shingles with artful scrubbing, snipping, and shaping, after which a generous helping of salt or sugar glow scrub is applied to hands to repair dryness and refresh skin. Like the pedicure, both manicures include your choice of polish, allowing you to dress your extremities like twins or decorate them differently so you can tell them apart.
