Dim lights and candles illuminate the earth-toned walls and other Tuscan flourishes that complement Serendipity Boutique and Day Spa’s relaxing salon and spa services. The all-inclusive oasis houses a staff of stylists and aestheticians who work tirelessly to soften skin, soothe aching muscles, and enhance the appearance of hair and nails. Clients awaiting treatment can sip on steamy beverages from an in-house espresso bar or peruse the spa’s very own boutique, which enhances newly treated areas with jewelry, handbags, footwear and apparel.
It should come as no surprise that the technology at Advanced Slimming Solutions bears nothing in common with the vibrating belts and coal-powered corsets of yesteryear. Instead, lasers and ultrasounds power the modern medspa treatments used here to help dieters shrink their silhouettes. To supplement these treatments, a staff of medical professionals supervises weight-loss programs, ensuring that inches and pounds are banished in a safe and healthy manner, never to return.
At Skin Solutions, located inside Rio Salon, the staff has an express set of goals: to reduce the signs of age and get rid of unwanted hair while impacting their clients' day as little as possible. To these ends, registered nurse Kathy LeFever leads an aesthetic team through the use of Botox and noninvasive lasers, filling out wrinkles and zapping unwanted hair from head to toe. And the combination of these two treatments is indicative of the larger trend that all the aestheticians follow—pairing pampering services with medical-grade technology. Facials and peels, for instance, offset IPL facial treatments and micro-pigmentation cosmetics, which render eyeliner that lasts up to five years, by which time everyone will have CGI eyeliner.
At You... Only Better KC LLC, the team tackles their namesake imperfection with treatments such as FDA-approved Endermologie. It's similar to a massage, except that instead of using their hands, the team rubs physiques with a hand piece, tracing carefully-calculated lines across hips, thighs, and stomachs. The process helps tighten and lift skin, much like a lightning-fast elevator ride to the top of the Eiffel Tower. To complement the toning massage, they offer other slimming Sudatonic treatments that use infrared heat to increase blood circulation and cause sweating—which helps release toxins and burn off fat stores—along with HCG weight-loss and colon hydrotherapy treatments.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Active Body Sculpting is giving Kansas City a non-invasive solution for body sculpting, fat reduction, and skin firming all in one treatment. With the latest and most innovative technology, Cavi-Lipo can provide instant results in one 40 minute session without any pain or post-treatment downtime.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We wanted to provide patients with a permanent fat loss alternative that actually works at a reasonable price. Keeping an active lifestyle doesn't always take care of those problem areas that we all seem to have.
What do you love most about your job?
We love helping people feel better about themselves and knowing that we have helped increase their self confidence.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
Our favorite customer feedback was from a patient who works with a plastic surgeon. He told her, "I never thought you were big before, but it looks like you're melting away."
At Mind, Body, & Soul patients need to drink water on the road to a slimmer figure—but beyond that, their weight loss treatments have little in common with traditional diet and exercise plans. Instead of sweating at the gym, patients lie on a treatment table during non-invasive sessions with the clinic's cold laser systems: the YOLO Curve and the Lapex BCS Lipo Laser. Both systems are based on similar scientific principles—their lasers are set to the correct frequency to puncture fat cell membranes while leaving skin unharmed. Once punctured, the fat cells release their contents, which are disposed of naturally through the lymphatic system, just like human feelings. Time atop a full-body vibration platform catalyzes that process, as does drinking plenty of water before and after the treatment.
