A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 250 locations blanket 36 states and eight countries—Planet Beach Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. The range of services include total skincare, wellness, weight management, relaxation and renewal treatments. Other machines whiten teeth, spray-tan skin, and massage muscles. Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
The Lecada Medical Artistry team advises clients hoping to reduce signs of aging or amp up health with treatment plans that range from laser skin resurfacing to time-honored tactics such as vitamin injections and diet counseling to avoid blood-sugar crashes and spikes.
Having cosmetic surgery can be quite nerve-racking, but patients at Cosmetic Surgery of Tampa Bay might rest a little easier in the hands of Dr. Christina Paylan, who has performed more than 4,000 cosmetic procedures and who also co-authored a surgical textbook in which she talks about how to prevent and treat surgical infections. Because she is so knowledgeable about this, Dr. Paylan has maintained a zero percent surgical-infection rate in her practice.
The veteran of Tampa General Hospital performs not only surgical treatments, such as tummy tucks and breast augmentations, but also less invasive procedures, such as dermal fillers and Botox injections. And she's a proponent of treating the body with more holistic practices, using arnica pills to reduce bruising after surgery and requiring all of her liposuction patients to get routine deep-tissue massages. Plus, Dr. Paylan's clinic has an organic med spa, where she administers vitamin-boosting energy shots, as well as perform gold-infusion therapy, which can lift sagging skin and minimize crow's-feet, and spider-vein removal, which makes legs look smoother and less menacing to butterflies.
It's a Breeze Diet Clinic's owner, Cindy Dervech, never considered herself overweight, but she was "skinny-fat," a term for a slender person with high body-fat levels (hers were at 34%). However, once she tried the diet system that is now the foundation of her clinic, that stat was quickly turned around without any injections or hormones. Dervech is now at 10% body fat, thanks to the natural protein-based diet.
The regimen—which encourages dieters to eat protein-rich chicken, red meat, and wild-caught fish—was originally created more than two decades ago by medical consultant Dr. Chanh Tran Tien. It has been getting results ever since, and its effectiveness is apparent in Breeze Diet Clinic's health coaches, all of whom have lost weight and are now in the diet's maintenance phase. The coaches' firsthand experience helps them motivate clients in weekly meetings. One particularly motivating fact: Unlike many dieting systems, this one doesn't just aid weight loss. It also aims to stabilize blood sugar levels and smooth away cellulite.

When it comes to aesthetic services, Total Vitality offers clients plenty of options. For example, technicians choose from three of the leading laser hair-removal systems when customizing clients' treatment plans based on skin type and hair texture. Milesman diode laser is just one of three laser systems that figure into laser hair removal treatments; that can treat all parts of the body and maximize comfort via cooling devices for the skin. Laser hair removal can help permanently remove unwanted hair, freeing clients from plucking, shaving and waxing. The licensed laser technicians provide a customized laser hair removal program to maximize results in an effective manner. Advanced technology, such as IPL photofacials and Botox injections, are also used to diminish visages' fine lines and scars.
