Southern Sun-Sations Tanning's Smart Tan–certified employees boast the expertise and equipment necessary to match clients with the best approach to meet their tanning needs. The regular-strength Puretan bed beams UV rays from 36 100-watt lamps to coax melanin to the surface of the skin, and high-performance standup units evenly gild bodies in 10 minutes without pressure points caused by lying down or thinking too hard. Spray tans eschew warm wavelengths and infuse the skin with a sun-kissed tone delivered by a technician's steady hand.
Just a short trip from the beach, Skin And Nail Boutique prepares bodies for a long season of bikini-clad sunbathing with spa treatments for the face, body, and nails. The spa’s no-cell-phone policy and elegant wrought-iron accents ensure a departure from the daily routine as clients submit to the soothing clays of facials or the warm waxes of hair-removal treatments. All-natural body wraps infused with aloe vera or mineral formulas work from the inside out, flushing away toxins and helping shoulders sprout their nascent butterfly wings.
As a child, Stephanie suffered from headaches, recurring sports injuries, and joint pain. She eventually discovered chiropractic treatments, which freed her from all that discomfort. That's also how she ended up becoming Dr. Stephanie Kern and working at ChiroSpa. She's still active now, and she hopes to pass along the benefits she's gotten from chiropractic medicine to others. She'll perform adjustments or just provide lifestyle advice for her clients, who range from pediatric patients to seniors looking to stay active. Dr. Kern also passes along her good luck by volunteering at 5K races and other community events.
With a steady hand and an eye for perfection, Emerald Coast Permanent Makeup's licensed artist implants natural-looking pigments into the skin. She enhances the eyes with eyeliner, fills out brows, and adds color and definition to the lips. Clients can also opt for a Marilyn Monroe-style beauty mark or for treatments that camouflage scars or fade unwanted tattoos.
At Monroe Healing Center the goal is right there in the name: healing. Its owner, a holistic practitioner who has been an Emerald Coast resident for 20 years, uses more than a decade of experience as a massage therapist and reflexologist to bring wellness services to community. Inside the center, clients enjoy a warm, comfortable atmosphere that helps begin the healing process the moment they walk in. From there, they can benefit from holistic treatments such as deep-tissue and hot-stone massage, raindrop therapy, and cupping for pain relief.
Run by twin sisters with 13 years of experience, iBrow Experts and its pros do so much more than shape eyebrows. They remove unwanted facial fuzz with a single piece of cotton thread. They add drama to peepers with eyelash extensions. And they improve the quality of face skin during facials that use pure gold. The staff’s inner artist comes out with henna tattoos of intricate flowers, swirls, and recreations of Van Gogh’s Starry Night on clients’ arms.
