Armed with an extensive selection of professional-strength glo therapeutics skincare products, The Face Place's licensed aesthetician, Kendra Pitner, combats signs of aging with hydrating facials and texture-transforming peels using lactic or glycolic acids. Pitner also cleans up features to draw attention to glowing skin by eradicating unwanted facial hair with Lycon wax and defining brows or lashes with a tinting process that convinces hairs to darken with a rousing 30-minute inspirational football speech.
Hot Spot Tanning combines state-of-the-art sunless-bronzing technology with friendly, committed service. Marinade your melanin with a month of unlimited tanning in one of Hot Spot's standard bulb-based beds, which boast a bevy of advanced amenities, including built-in timers, optional air conditioning, and inspirational photos of the world's sexiest gingerbread men (a $41.99 value).

Licensed skin therapist Casey Durrett draws from her background in clinical aesthetics and education in skincare to heal and rejuvenate precious integumentary tissue. Ably standing alone at the helm, Durrett takes on all the responsibilities of her office by herself, tending to guests one by one without the need for receptionists or other therapists. Each guest relaxes in the enchanting solitude of the spa all on their own, free to contemplate or engage in conversation with the Japanese-inspired lanterns and floor lamps of paper and varnished wood, or the fragrant flowers and towering purple orchid. Gentle volleys of diamonds slough away dead skin cells during microdermabrasion treatments, and specially-formulated chemical peels and downtime-free cold-laser therapy restore visages to a youthful, consistent complexion.
The human face has many natural predators: acne, wrinkles, oil, and DMV photographers, to name a few. Norrell Skin Care offers sanctuary from these pesky villains with more than a dozen express and extended facial treatments, all of which are customized to each client's unique skin type. After the spa's skilled aestheticians use PCA or Dermalogica products to deep clean the pores, they can tackle full-body beautification with a slimming wrap or a waxing session.
Dermea Laser Skin Care is not a spa. It’s not a salon. And it’s definitely not one of those places where they make mediocre burgers but people still go because the servers pretend to be rude to you. But it is the aesthetics branch of Get Well Clinics, which means it relies on medical-grade equipment and procedures to remove body hair and refresh the skin. One such piece of equipment is the LightSheer diode laser system, a popular machine that can remove hair from all six types of skin on the Fitzpatrick scale. Another is the microdermabrasion machine, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles, acne, and scars, especially when it’s coupled with the alpha-hydroxy acids of the clinic’s glycolic peels.
Ancient people in ancient times got perfect ancient tans while standing up because lying on the ground for bronzing purposes had not yet been attempted. Hollywood Tans' friendly staff takes a page out of the history books by implementing highly hygienic vertical tanning to deliver even, 360-degree coloration without the stress of bulb marks and pressure points one gets from horizontal tanning beds. If you opt for the month of unlimited tanning (up to a $110 value), your outside will be privy to the state-of-the-art stand-up booths, which instill pleasing hues all over your body in no more than 11 minutes. Each Hollywood Tans location hosts around 15 booths, all equipped with a built-in audio system, which is a significant upgrade from old-school booths with built-in Abe Vigodas.
