With a skin-savvy staff of medical professionals, glowMD pares down pileous patches with help from FDA–approved laser technology. Candela lasers are ideal for tenderly blasting away tough tufts from skin shields of all tones, types, and tints, freeing men and women from irritating razor burn and the amateur sonnets of poetic waxers. After five lightsabering sessions, most patients see significant deductions in the amount of bothersome body bristle, though results vary from patient to patient. An individual consultation helps evaluate each client's specific needs.
Realizing that every minute spent primping takes away from their clients' free time, the staff of Body & Sol Tanning Boutique streamlines their services so clients can get in, get bronzed, and get out. Clients can simply walk in to the chain location closest to home, after which they consult with the Smart Tan-certified staff over which tanning method is most suitable for their skin. After deciding on intensity and length of sessions, clients hop into one of the five tiers of UV bed. The salon also offers UV-free options such as the automated Mystic HD booth, which is loaded with four different shades of tanning pigment, all of which seep into skin through the use of heated rays. Clients can choose to deepen tans with a range of Devoted Creations tanning accelerators, or simply heighten a tan's contrast with surgically implanted angel wings or the salon's BleachBright teeth-whitening kits.
TNT Bootcamp of Hampton Roads has built a supportive exercise setting for students of every age and body type, earning a Silver ranking for Best Gym/Fitness Facility in the Virginian-Pilot's Best of Hampton Roads 2011 list. Each 45-minute meet-up features modifiable techniques and a communal feel, as owner Debra Cotton strives to shed weight alongside the camp's other attendees. Music infuses kickboxing strikes and weight-lifts with energized pizzazz as step aerobics, resistance bands, and stability balls condition physiques.
Unlike in a similarly titled section of a high-school yearbook, patrons strive to have their names posted in the website’s Biggest Losers section, many shedding 5, 6, or 8 pounds per week. With nutrition guidance, weekly weigh-ins, and supplementary wellness resources, the boot-camp regimen embraces a holistic approach to physical health and proffers Zumba sessions for those interested in a rhythmic change of pace.
The trained staff of Tan 'N Tone acquaints clients with indoor bronzing in one of the salon's beds, booths, or through UV-free spray tanning. Each member of the salon team gains accreditation after passing a written examination and successfully calculating the date of the next solar flare, then cheerily relays that knowledge to visitors. New clients can also take a tour of the salon, where experts discuss safe tanning practices while introducing their guests to Tan 'N Tone's equipment.
Clients may achieve an even UV tan across the body or a specific area using the salon's full complement of tanning beds and booths. The powerful Matrix bed grants deep, dark tans in short sessions, and standup tanners can savor the wide, open-air design of the X2 Maxx High Pressure booth. The Legacy focuses on darkening legs, and Pacifica leaves faces golden. For UV-free tans, the Pura Sunless spray-tan booth releases gentle misting to let visitors emerge bearing a sun-kissed appearance.
