You open your eyes. The atmosphere is relaxing, sterile. Whiteness extends into infinity. You're either at Skin and Beauty Lounge or in prison with THX 1138. Luckily for you and for your skin, it's the former.
Linda Martinez, a medical aesthetician with 30 years of skincare experience, is the mastermind behind the new-concept spa. Her life-affirming attitude creates a fun and friendly environment amid the contemporary furnishings and amenities, which include a cupcake bar stocked with complimentary treats. In private treatment rooms, the spa's professionals administer expert services, such as custom facials, med-spa treatments, waxing services, and spray-tanning sessions. They encourage guests to bring their personal iPods or MP3 players—treatment rooms are equipped with docks and speakers—to further customize and enhance their experience.
Rejuvenate Medical Spa, housed in the Women’s Health Center, employs a licensed staff to polish and pamper the body's wrapping paper with restorative skin treatments aimed at promoting youthful textures and vibrant tones. The Vitalize chemical peel is a dermatological treatment enlisted in an arms race to retire pigments, bully blemishes, and eliminate facial lines. The process begins its transforming tale with a facial cleanser, which readies the exterior surfaces of the face for rejuvenation by ridding the skin of airborne bacteria, acquired oils, and obscene alleyway graffiti. Then, after moisturizing the face, a skin specialist uses SkinMedica products to erase acne scars and the cruel signatures of age, time, and Founding Fathers. A final slathering of SPF 30+ sunscreen protects newly revitalized skin cells from sun damage and light rays pretending to be comets.
Aqua Salon & Spa offers cosmetic treatments from its med spa, as well as nail-sprucing and hair-primping services in a contemporary chic atmosphere.

Both treatments are quick and nonsurgical, and can restore a youthful appearance more easily than crawling around on hands and knees, communicating in monosyllables. Results typically last up to four months.
