Upon stepping into the classically grand 30,000-square-foot spa, La Vie Medical Spa, visitors could be forgiven for never leaving. The luxurious suites boast ornately embellished Victorian wood furniture, Persian rugs, silky throw pillows, and dramatic, towering floral arrangements. Staff members assist clients in getting comfortable in preparation for full-on pampering. They address cosmetic issues with a slate of services including anti-aging treatments, facials, and body-contouring. For example, they work to turn back the clock with the Fraxel laser, which is designed to stimulate collagen production, resulting in firmer, brighter skin.
But they go beyond the surface with nutrition counseling, physical therapy, and massage. In addition to providing relaxing Swedish and hot-stone massage, the massage therapists tackle pain resulting from injuries with sports and Profound massage and soothe the pains associated with pregnancy during prenatal massage. And finally, the staffers also helm a fitness studio, chock full of free weights and machines to help guests both look and feel their best. The group trainers cover disciplines like Butt-N-Gutt, bootcamp, step aerobics, Zumba, body sculpting, and more.
Helmed by Dr. Kenneth Pyle, a general and cosmetic dentist with a penchant for tooth technology and over 10 years of experience from more than 600 cases, Orlando Dental Group keeps choppers healthy and helps them look their best. Scientific advances such as Invisalign tooth straightening, which Pyle is an instructor for, and Cerec restorations bolster the clinic's service menu, which teems with furbishing options such as bonding and veneers. Caring technicians guide patients through routine cleanings, sharing oral-hygiene tips, and steering them toward educational videos on brushing, gum-disease prevention, and management of wisdom teeth. Digital x-rays minimize radiation as they search for cavities, and friendly schedulers makes appointment-setting easier than getting stuck in a puddle of quicksand.

After waiting by the sandy walls and staring at beach photographs in the lobby, patients at Lake Baldwin Dental might mistake their treatment room for a private cabana, especially after reclining in a leather chair with a personal screen that broadcasts movies, TV shows, and music. Patients relax further with noise-canceling headphones that diminish the sounds of dental instruments or with dental sedation, which can help clients with dental phobias find a sense of serenity.
Dr. William Dunn and Dr. Kathleen Anderson then get to work, addressing cosmetic concerns with complimentary smile makeover consultations that can lead to Zoom! whitening services, porcelain veneers, and implants. Their medical offerings range from inconspicuous fillings to cosmetic services.
As co-owners of Trend Studios Orlando, Matthew Bengston and Anthony Cortes have cultivated a business that reflects their own areas of expertise. Matthew brings his skills as a stylist to the hair salon, where he and his team cut men’s and women’s hair, add highlights, and lengthen locks with extensions. For his part, Anthony draws on his talents as a teeth-whitening and airbrush-tanning specialist to oversee those branches of the studio. Both Matthew and Anthony go out of their way to ensure a comfortable experience for clients: Anthony’s airbrush tans, for example, employ an Evolv. Sidekick tanning system that warms up its tanning solution before gently misting skin. For the spa services in which they do not specialize, Matthew and Anthony employ a knowledgeable staff that performs massages, waxing treatments, and a cappella renditions of the spa’s relaxing soundtrack.
The teeth-whitening professionals at DazzlingWhiteSmileUSA believe that a brighter smile is a gateway to success, and they help clients achieve this goal with a variety of effective whitening products. Their premium take-home kit, for example, harnesses professional-grade peroxide gels and LED lights to accelerate the whitening process while causing little to no sensitivity. It also brightens teeth up to 12 shades in the process. Alternatively, they enhance smiles with Forever White teeth-whitening pens or WhiteICE freshening sticks ideal for touch-ups or on-the-go whitening. The convenient design dispenses whitening gel directly onto teeth without the need for refrigeration or lights.
DazzlingWhiteSmileUSA also offers remineralization gels, which reduce tooth sensitivity and strengthen enamel by replenishing important minerals. All items are kept in a compact blue carrying case for easy transport and storage.
