Spanning more than 150 locations and six states, L.A. Tan's beautifying services polish pallid epidermises into shining, bronzed statues and brighten smiles with whitening treatments. A Level 1, 2, or 3 booth tan glows warmly with UVB rays, stimulating the body's production of vitamin D and burnishing epidermises to a brilliant sheen. UV-free spray tans, such as Mystic Tan or Versa Spa sessions, quickly glaze outer skin shells into glistening hues without exposing hides to the sun's harmful rays or pitiful knock-knock jokes.
Headed by veteran plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Lichten, Central Ohio Plastic Surgery beautifies bodies with a suite of advanced cosmetic procedures. Botox treatments use injections of purified protein to paralyze wrinkle-causing muscles, smoothing out the epidermal furrows that can often obscure detailed facial tattoos. All procedures are performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon fully trained in administering injections safely and professionally. Appointments take about half an hour, and the injections themselves take only five minutes, allowing patients to defeat unwanted wrinkles during a lunch break or the boring part of a favorite feature-length infomercial. Full effects are usually apparent after two weeks, and the results last up to four to six months.
Since opening in the early 1990s with just four stores, L.A. Tan has expanded into a national brand that counts more than 180 locations in six states. Members can tan at any location they wish, selecting from services that range from at least five levels of high-end UV beds to spray-tan booths from top brands such as Mystic Tan and VersaSpa. Anyone unsure of how to navigate all the options can seek advice from one of L.A. Tan's certified tanning professionals, who know each tanning bed on a first-name basis. They also give consultations, build custom packages based on individual skin type, and offer take-home products that help tans last longer. Dependent on the location, spray tanning systems will vary; call desired location for further details.

A comprehensive salon and day spa offering hair, nail, massage, facial, waxing, and makeup services since 1983, Frederick's provides a peaceful escape from everyday stresses.

Relaxation levels are magnified during the joint Swedish knead, during which partners lounge on side-by-side massage tables as skilled therapists employ gentle, soothing strokes to evict tension, untangle muscular knots, and boost circulation without disturbing sleeping belly buttons.
