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. Before being called into a private treatment room for the 60-minute couple's massage, lovebirds can snuggle up on a black leather sofa and absorb the cozy warmth pulsing from a flickering stone fireplace. 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.
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.
Laser technician Anna Hilborn helms IVR, which is located inside Cosmetic Solutions. Here, she aims to resolve problematic skin expediently and safely. Stubborn acne is controlled when met with advanced laser treatments. Lasers also gently remove unwanted body hair while entertaining clients with light shows set to the Eagles.
Using advanced Chromogenex i-Lipo lasers—which have been praised by The Doctors—the technicians at New Beginnings Body Sculpting reduce both fat and inches from clients’ forms. Four pads outfitted with a total of 32 low-level lasers are placed along sites of concern, such as thighs, upper arms, or water wings, where they spend the next 40 minutes prompting fat cells to release their impurities and triglycerides. The cell waste is then absorbed and burned off by the muscles. The office’s i-Lipo Ultra goes one step further to create firmer physiques: the device’s built-in vacuum and infrared laser help smooth out cellulite and boost collagen production.
A Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner, David Auburn's drama Proof establishes how difficult it is to prove sanity, love, and faith. After discovering a potentially groundbreaking mathematical proof in her deceased father's notebook, a young woman questions how much of his genius, and madness, she has inherited. The show contains adult language, so parents bringing young ones are encouraged to stuff their kids’ ears with peanut butter before the show.
Avanti offers a cornucopia of facial services, including the half-hour medical mini facial, which cleanses, steams, and massages your skull-sheath before applying a therapeutic mask tailored to your skin type. The treatment costs $75 by itself, but only $45 if you combine it with another service such as the microdermabrasion ($125), a skin-freshening technique that gently sandblasts the skin with tiny crystals before sucking up the fallen enemy cells with a vacuum. A few microdermabrasion treatments will help facial skin recover from the sun's savage Pesci-like pummeling—staving off the effects of aging in the process by removing fine lines and unwanted pigmentation.
