Dr. James Kemmler and registered nurse Nancy Jenkins use medical-grade treatments to renew their clients’ skin. Microdermabrasion sessions and chemical peels work to diminish the appearance of scars, sun spots, and fine lines. Using Ultherapy, an FDA-approved non-invasive procedure, technicians can also lift the neck, chin, and brow. Fine lines also disappear with Botox cosmetic injections. To cap off beauty-enhancing services, clients can take home Latisse and apply it to their eyelashes for fuller- and darker-looking fringe.
At Solutions Skincare & Laser Center, husband-and-wife team Craig and Rachelle Hanson fuse medical-grade services with a spa atmosphere to help their clients defeat the aging process. For more than 15 years, the med spa’s aestheticians have helped boost clients' confidence and local mirror sales with a repertoire of skincare services that includes microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and facials.
As a family-owned-and-operated business, Magic Island Tanning provides a variety of services for patrons seeking a toastier epidermis. Three varieties of UV beds provide even results for melanin seekers of every stripe, with both standing and reclining options. Those who shun the sun can opt for VersaSpa's moisturizing sunless-tanning spray, which studied the star religiously for years to learn its moves and recreate them for ex-sun worshippers. The system's EZ-2Breathe technology makes each dark-hued hose-down comfortable and relaxing. Spray tans come in three levels ($31–$41 for full-body treatments); face ($5–7) and leg ($14–18) sprays are also available.
At Tantalizing Studios, three levels of tanning beds, hand-blended spray-tans, and top-tier tanning lotions help clients achieve customized tans not possible at every tanning salon. After recommending a tanning lotion from a selection that includes Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Devoted Creations products, technicians lead individuals to private treatment rooms, where seven different tanning beds await. In addition to tanning, Tantalizing Studios' serene, turquoise-colored studio welcomes those in need of body-waxing and massage treatments.
The deft muscle-manipulators at Special Touch Hair Designs knead bone-movers into ache-free bliss with stress-busting massages and pampering spa treatments. The 45-minute hand-and-foot paraffin treatment encases extremities in warm, sticky wax, locking in moisture to leave hands and feet as soft as the Pillsbury Doughboy’s favorite neck pillow. After removing the wax, therapists complete the pampering with hand and foot massages. A one-hour relaxation massage focuses on liquefying tension with broad, smooth strokes while moisturizing skin with cocoa butter or hypoallergenic lotion. Therapeutic massage focuses on knotty muscles, applying deep pressure to clenched backs and shoulders to increase range of motion and circulation. A clean, softly lit room ensconces guests in a serene atmosphere during sessions. Quiet music and warm sheets encourage guests to drift into relaxing reveries, daydreaming about floating through clouds or visiting museums filled only with busts of Teddy Roosevelt.
For Glo On The Go's owner, Gail Ward, tan skin seemed like an impossible dream. With a strong history of skin cancer in her family, she knew tanning beds and booths were off-limits and turned instead to bottled tanning lotions and creams, trying nearly every one she could find with less than ideal results. So when Gail?s sister Esther told her about airbrush tanning, she decided to give it a shot?and was amazed to discover she had finally found a method of self-tanning that worked for her skin type and, best of all, looked natural. She was so impressed, in fact, that she decided to open her own tanning salon in order to share airbrush tanning with melanoma survivors and other clients concerned about the adverse health effects of traditional tanning.
Nine years?and 30 spray-tan-solution tests?later, Gail took her commitment to counteracting paleness one step further by developing her own line of custom spray-tan solutions. The custom formulas allow Gail and her staff of skincare experts to match clients? skin types to the solution best suited to their needs. The Clearly Tan Light solution, for example, is ideal for skin that burns easily, whereas the salon's go-to formula, Beautifully Bronzed, is fortified with anti-aging and skin-strengthening ingredients such as amino acids and vitamins A, C, and E, making it an ideal option for nearly anyone, but especially those looking to avoid scurvy.
