Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

HLC Lake Mary Spa
HLC Lake Mary Spa’s quiet interiors and welcoming personnel envelop each client in a reassuring cocoon that blocks out the stressors of the outside world. The spa began as a compassionate center for weight loss and smoking cessation, soon adding high-tech spa treatments and noninvasive wellness procedures. Cream-colored walls and draped windows dress treatment rooms with an aura of home to help relax clients there for body-wide cosmetic boosts from LED teeth whitening to red-light skin therapy. Clients can feel confident in their therapists, each of whom is a licensed aesthetician trained in laser procedures. The clinic has also made the pages of Lake Mary Life magazine for its antiaging laser photo facial treatment.
