Desert Sun Tanning Salon's Woodinville location houses a variety of bronzing options, with 10 UV tanning beds and one spray-tan booth that mists the skin with an even umber. Formostar body wraps melt calories and impurities from recumbent bodies by harnessing the power of infrared heat. The salon holds weekend hours, and stays open until 10 p.m. on weekdays so clients can continue tanning long after their solar-powered beds go out.
Within the Spanish-styled sanctuary of Oasis Salon Suites and Spa, Hilda Ortiz and her team of stylists help guests perfect their 'dos. The salon lives up to its motto—"Transforming lives with the art of color"—with an array of dye and highlighting services that add eye-catching hues to pallid strands. Haircut and styling sessions keep expertly colored coifs looking perfectly kempt, and conditioning treatments repair hair damage and make ponytails strong enough to reject a neon Scrunchie.
A woman lies on a padded table, with bands connecting a profusion of colored wires from a computer to her skin. The scene inside one of Body Evo's treatment rooms could be taking place in a laboratory, if not for the dim lighting. And the fact that the subject is serenely reading a magazine. This is the Computerized Muscle Stimulation system, which sends signals into muscles that induce tiny contractions, thereby helping blood and lymph fluid circulate while toning the muscles themselves. Although the spa staff and licensed massage therapists at Body Evo also offer herbal body wraps and analog massages, most of the treatments are similarly high-tech. Vibrating pods emit infrared light in order to tighten and tone skin as clients recline in a cocoon-like infrared sauna, adapted from the natural world's butterfly vacation homes. Other treatments are as easy as breathing: both the NanoVi and Activated Air machines tweak ordinary oxygen and use it to rejuvenate tissues.
With backgrounds in serving as a nurse in Army intensive care units to years working in medical aesthetics, TLC Skin Care Clinic's duo of master aestheticians takes skincare very seriously. Not only does that mean designing top-notch facials?one client gushed it was "the best facial I ever had"; it also means supporting cancer survivors on their road to recovery. They do this by correcting brow-hair loss with permanent makeup services and perking up complexions with custom medical facials. Those interested in more cosmetic treatments can choose from a half-dozen injectables, including Botox and Juvederm, or get individual lash extensions that might make your lashes tall enough to finally ride roller coasters by themselves.
