Anytime Tan Tanning Club first powered up its trio of German-made tanning beds in September, 1985, during the peak of the decade’s indoor-tanning boom. But just as bulky car phones and shoulder pads have faded away in the years that followed, Anytime Tan Tanning Club has stayed on top of trends by acquiring the latest equipment for its eight area locations.
The staff members at each location can pair clients with all manner of machines, from powerful Ergoline beds and booths to innovative sunless-tanning solutions from VersaSpa. For added vanity, most of the salon’s locations offer professional teeth-whitening services. And the Robinson location even provides Evolv sunless tanning and innovative red-light therapy, which aims to diminish signs of aging or the fact that someone enjoys napping on pizzas.
The award-winning Dr. Dinakar Golla, a board-certified plastic surgeon at Golla Center for Plastic Surgery and Sacred Image Med Spa, has been recognized by universities, Merck, and the national medical honor society Alpha Omega Alpha. When he's not lecturing, publishing articles, and teaching other surgeons to perfect their skills and properly quote medical dramas, Dr. Golla joins his team to help patients look and feel their best. Traditional surgical options, such as rhinoplasty and tummy tucks, join injectables and laser treatments to comprise a full menu of rejuvenating services.
Clients waiting for their appointments at Barbiere can sink into overstuffed leather chairs and catch a few minutes of sports games on TV or sip on cold beverages while they flip through newspapers. This upscale barbershop offers the expected clipper haircuts and straight-razor shaves in addition to more elaborate cuts, color, facials, and brow waxing. The barbers and stylists are welcoming and friendly, and the shop's wood-and-black decor creates a masculine and woodchuck-friendly atmosphere.
The aestheticians at Spa in the Hollow believe in indulgence. Operating under the philosophy that life is "sweeter with a little instant gratification and self-indulgence," they've welcomed guests to their peaceful spa for over a decade. Visitors can begin their journeys in the Serenity Room, taking some light refreshment while basking in the glow of a fireplace. Then, for an elemental contrast, they might lie down beside a waterfall for a massage in the garden gazebo, set in a landscape that includes a pond landscaped with Eastern-style trees, rocks, and grasses. Drawing on a different kind of vegetation, mango or coconut lime pedicures soften feet as the hands cradle a complimentary cocktail designed to make their insides feel tropically smooth.
Backed by a quarter-century?s worth of experience, Tracey and her staff at Pittsburgh Permanent Makeup & Laser Center zap away unwanted ink and make skin appear more youthful with paramedical aesthetic services. For tattoo removal, they utilize laser technology in a process that breaks ink particles into tiny fragments for the body to remove naturally. An expert makeup artist applies permanent makeup to brows, lids, and lips, and a certified collagen induction therapist administers collagen-induction therapy, which can reduce or eliminate the appearance of lines stemming from general aging. Their esthetician helps clients solve common and uncommon skin issues.
Backed by his skilled staff, Dr. Dinakar Golla—who studied at the renowned Boston University School of Medicine—customizes surgical and aesthetic treatments for the face, body, and skin at six locations. He revivifies sagging eyelids with blepharoplasty, cultivates svelte physiques with liposuction, and casts out unwanted hair and spider veins from the body's surface using high-tech lasers and exorcism. He and his team also perform a slate of noninvasive medical-spa services and massages to help further enhance beauty.
