Potted trees and paintings of scenic getaways welcome visitors into Sundeck Tanning Salon, a beach-themed bronzing studio that is owned and operated by a team of female tanning experts. Posters of bikini-clad beauties provide inspiration to bodies waiting to use the salon's spray-tanning booths and beds, with underlying captions that display tips for maximizing their new glow's lifespan, such as moisturizing it regularly and packing it in ice each night. Tanning products available for purchase lend vibrant pops of color to the shop's clean, white shelves, and include offerings from popular brands such as Swedish Beauty and Australian Gold.
Board-certified physician Michelle Russell, D.O. leads the friendly and highly trained team of skin-smoothing and anti-aging specialists at Enduring Youth Skin and Laser Center, who help patients turn back the years without surgery.

On the cosmic end of the beauty spectrum, FDA-approved lasers banish unappreciated hair from all skin types, and the infrared light of the Titan collagen-stimulating system shines down upon faces, abs, and thighs to help create smooth, supple skin.
Marty Bianculli’s career spans nearly four decades—that’s almost one year for each of the more than 40 awards he has received for his work. At the top of that long list of awards sit the National Hairdressers and Cosmetologists Association’s coveted Hairstylist of the Year award and two consecutive wins as the Ohio State Hairstylist of the Year. At Mark Philips Salon/Spa, Bianculli draws on his extensive knowledge to guide a team of beauty professionals as they precariously juggle shears and perform salon and spa services such as haircuts, massages, and body sugaring. While skin absorbs moisture from organic Tela skincare products, strands bathe in the salon’s own signature formulas.
Despite its warm, inviting atmosphere, VenusKardia Medical Spa offers clinical beauty services that go above and beyond those offered by the average day spa or fairy godmother. Here, a staff of physicians, registered nurses, and medical aestheticians fine-tune guests' facades using advanced technology. Medical-grade microdermabrasion and pharmaceutical-grade skin products refine complexions, while injectables such as Botox, Juv?derm, and Radiesse address signs of aging. The team also employs noninvasive laser systems to reduce the appearance of acne, smooth wrinkles, and remove unwanted hair.
Aesthetic procedures benefit from cutting-edge medical expertise at Revitalize MD MedSpa and Laser Center. As the center's medical directors, Drs. Tiffany Hall and Amina Husain rely on their extensive experience in fields ranging from obstetrics to reconstructive surgery. However, they also offer nonsurgical methodologies as they help clients obtain their desired complexion or body shape. They accomplish this by enlisting the aid of modern advancements in aesthetic technology and skincare products.
Using the Candela GentleYAG and Alexandrite cosmetic laser systems, technicians can improve skin tone by zapping unsightly stubble or sealing noticeable spider veins. The low-power YOLO Curve laser contours the body by shrinking stubborn fat deposits, and VelaShape technology accomplishes a similar goal by bombarding adipose tissues with a combination of bipolar radio frequencies and infrared light energy. While permanent makeup procedures can create timeless, natural-looking eyebrows or eyeliner, the med spa can also use a Q-switched laser system to remove tattoos.
Beyond medically assisted therapies, Revitalize MD MedSpa and Laser Center also pampers visitors with an array of more traditional spa treatments. Alternatively, aestheticians can restore skin by performing facials with clinical-strength products by companies such as Obagi.
Gwendolyn Shafer, owner of Signature Day Spa, pampers skin with European-style treatments beneath the spa's hanging art and cascades of natural light. The multivitamin facial harnesses gentle Dermalogica products to tighten sagging epidermises, reduce hyperpigmentation, and help patrons win over stern canine officers. Dull facades bathe in a purifying cleanser before a multivitamin scrub exfoliates and nourishes skin. Aestheticians evict stubborn blackheads, oil, and dirt during the pore extraction process and soothe patrons with a gentle neck and shoulder pressure-point massage. Cleansed countenances retreat under the blanket of a multivitamin mask, emerging with improved levels of collagen and elasticity. Finally, the skin virtuoso applies a moisturizer that leaves faces beaming like a clown-college valedictorian.
