The folks behind Tropicalaser view laser hair removal as a necessity, not an indulgence. That's why, like a doctor's office, they try to accommodate as many clients as they can. To swiftly and safely shed unwanted hair, they use lasers from reputable companies such as Lumenis, Candela, and Cynosure. On-staff medical directors and laser technicians implement strict protocol to maintain responsible use. Laser-hair removal is available for both men and women, and the equipment Tropicalaser uses can accommodate all skin types. Other services offered include tattoo removal and skin rejuvenation treatments.
As its name suggests, Shut Out The World Spa Inc. barricades the stressors of the outside world, creating a vacu-sealed bubble of serenity where clients can relax for a lunch break or a whole afternoon.

In addition to tending tight muscles, the staff also smoothens skin with sugar scrubs, mud wraps, and masks.
Beauty of Wax has banished unwanted body hair with waxing services in a clean and relaxed environment for 17 years. During that time, the salon has developed a specialty for the meticulous task of sculpting eyebrows. Using natural beeswax, the staff remove stray hairs to frame the eyes and stop constant comparisons to Groucho Marx. They retain the same attention to detail when waxing any portion of the body or applying Swarovski-cut crystals to the bikini zone. Using techniques such as cavitation, vacuum therapy, passive gymnastics, radio-frequency therapy, and body wrapping, in addition to an array of facials and relaxing massage services, won the spot the Hollywood Gazette's 2010 award for Best Place to Be Pampered.

Alcira Eimil—a certified medical electrologist and the owner of ANJ Permanent Hair Removal & Aesthetics—draws upon more than two decades of experience in the depilation business as she wrangles unsightly strands. The studio's LightSheer Duet laser terminates unwanted hair quickly using tough yet gentle photons that harmlessly pass through the skin and directly impact hair follicles. The treatment targets hair of any shade other than white, gray, or blond. Gents shouldn't feel left out—they can boost their suaveness by exiling errant hairs from the back, ears, and sideburns that frame their pinky toenails. For small areas and those rascally light-hued hairs, Eimil also offers electrolysis treatments that zap individual follicles with a small dose of electrical current.
