Essentials Massage & Facials' Spa licensed professionals relax weary bodies with a collection of therapeutic services. Soothing massages employ a collection of kneads, strokes, and manipulations to reduce tension and disentangle body knots, with luxurious add-ons such as paraffin treatments and aromatherapy. The skin-savvy techs also rid frames of unwanted stubble with waxing services, smooth out wrinkles with chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and soften countenances with professional skincare products during facials.
At Care Massage, a team of licensed massage therapists administers a full menu of Swedish, hot stone, and lymph drainage therapies—but there's more to the business than that. On-staff technicians also address beauty concerns using cutting-edge technology. Cold laser equipment, for example, drains fat cells at targeted locations, resulting in slimmer waistlines, svelter limbs, and tinier earlobes. Each treatment is augmented with thoughtful touches such as hot towels and aromatherapy.
As its name suggests, My Laser Institute's services blend personal service with advanced technology. Botanical ingredients add a touch of natural indulgence to restorative services, from massages and facials that use Hawaiian Kona coffee and vanilla to moisturizing body wraps that replenish with pineapple and tea. Luxurious materials including sugar-cane extract and semiprecious gemstones amplify skincare sessions.
Visitors seeking a more clinical approach may opt for one of the institute's signature laser treatments. Technicians focus beams on unwanted tattoos, spider veins, or hair. A CO2 fractional laser works to minimize the appearance of facial flaws such as age spots, pronounced lines, and drawn-on freckles.
Aesthetics Laser Institute, nationally accredited by the Council on Occupational Health, has been educating students for more than eight years. Aspiring aestheticians flock to the campus for classes and hands-on practice, training under watchful eye of licensed professionals. Clients, meanwhile, flock to the beautifying hotspot for classic spa treatments, laser hair removal, and massage.
Helmed by Dr. Donald Dilenno, who focuses on hair transplants and microsurgery, the institute offers a smorgasbord of noninvasive beauty treatments. Their body wraps vanquish toxins with a house blend of 23 minerals, whereas their facial treatments brighten skin with a proprietary blend of pluck and know-how. The dead sea mud mask, for example, detoxes more effectively than a live sea mask, which is just a live fish.
Planet Beach is a one-stop-shop for beauty and wellness. Members can stay bronzed all year long in the UV tanning booths and recharge any solar-powered body doubles. But one of the highlights of the studio is the futuristic Contempo Spa onsite, a self-serve spa machine where you can push a button to receive a number of spa services without the need for an attendant. The machine's HydroMassage bed helps alleviate muscle soreness with targeted waves of heated water. Other DIY services available: 15-minute teeth whitening procedures and Lumiere.
The experienced stylists at Classy Cuts of Florida perform a variety of services in a vibrant, upbeat setting. Clients watch in floor-length mirrors framed with black wood as staffers nourish tresses with Paul Mitchell or Moroccanoil products, and add highlights or feather extensions as an eye-catching final touch. The wall alongside the shampoo stations boasts a colorful, collage-style artwork that, like a seminar on municipal tax codes, encourages onlookers to dream.
