Beneath twinkling chandeliers and black-and-white photos of old Hollywood stars, The Sour Apple Nail Bar and Tanning Lounge's skillful staff pampers patrons with a battery of soothing spa services. A Breakfast at Tiffany's facial first varnishes visages with exfoliating SkinCeuticals products before employing steam and extractions to open clogged pores for a renewed complexion as bright and clean as a cryogenically frozen cheerleader. A Manique-Her manicure uses sanitary single-use nail files and buffers to reshape nails before a soothing scrub washes hands of dead skin, kennel club stamps, and fake-blood stains (a $30 value). Finally, semi-permanent Shellac polish clamps down on unruly fingertip coalitions with a long-lasting coat of hard colour that can last without chipping for at least two weeks (a $25 value). After your treatment is complete, enjoy complimentary waterfront views through the spa's large windows.

At Salveo Naturopathic & Skin Care, doctors Allan and Shalon Strauss oversee certified laser technicians who enhance bodily contours using FDA-approved VelaShape, a noninvasive laser lipo procedure demonstrated live on The Doctors. Treatment begins as technicians explain VelaShape in-depth so patients feel comfortable and can set realistic expectations about fitting into their favourite childhood lederhosen. While clients recline, technicians secure two multi-laser probes and two smaller laser probes to treatment areas before gliding the VelaShape hand piece over epidermises. The device applies a cold, low-level laser technology comprised of four fat-targeting modalities—vacuum action, mechanical massage, infrared light, and radio-frequency energy—which combine to melt subcutaneous fat, boost circulation, stimulate lymphatic drainage, and smoothen the appearance of cellulite. Patients may lose up to 3-inches in circumference depending on treatment area, ranging from large zones such as the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen to smaller swaths such as the flanks and upper arms. Patients often experience little to no discomfort and can return to normal activities right away.
