At the clean and friendly Island Tanning, clients adopt a golden glow without stepping foot outdoors. Here, traditional UV tanning booths gild bodies quickly and evenly, while VersaSpa machines bronze skin instantly and with no UV exposure whatsoever. Hydration Stations, meanwhile, help to prolong tans by infusing skin with oxygen and nutrients, and can even help skin appear more toned.
Island Tanning also beautifies bodies with skin-healing red-light-therapy. The red light can help boost collagen production, fight acne bacteria, and provide pain relief, and may even help repair sun-damaged skin or balance naturally green complexions.
The medical aestheticians at Glam Lash Boutique value their clients' natural beauty, so it should come as no surprise that they use natural spa treatments whenever possible. Their acid peels, for example, incorporate ingredients such as pomegranate and deep-sea herbs to more effectively remove impurities and unflattering clown paint. Even their hair-removal treatments are natural; clients can choose between wax or a natural sugar paste, both of which whisk away unwanted stubble and prepare skin for an organic spray tan. Of course, one of the spa's most popular services is hinted at in the name. Certified lash artists carefully apply silk and mink extensions to add length to natural eyelashes.

Treatments designed to smooth skin and reduce wrinkles may rely on the power of hyaluronic acid. Learn some of its secrets with Groupon's guide.
If your joints don’t creak and your eyeballs don’t squish around in their sockets, you have hyaluronic acid to thank. It’s a gel-like substance that lubricates and gives shape to several key components of the body, and with the help of dermatologists and chemists, it becomes even more versatile. Injected in the form of dermal fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane, it can soften fine lines and replace lost volume in skin, creating a more youthful appearance that can last up to a year. Because it’s already found naturally in the body, it doesn't irritate surrounding tissues when injected. (And humans aren’t the only creatures who rely on the substance—before chemists learned to synthesize it, it used to be extracted from rooster combs.)
Hyaluronic acid also appears in many moisturizers and anti-aging creams, but unlike dermal fillers, these won't have much impact on wrinkles. "When you use hyaluronic acid topically, it doesn't penetrate the skin," says Dr. Debra Jaliman, author of Skin Rules: Trade Secrets from a Top New York Dermatologist. "It only acts as a moisturizer." But that effect shouldn’t be underestimated. Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, meaning that it draws in water from the air and holds it against the epidermis, hydrating the skin without clogging pores like some lotions and mud pits can. "Patients who are acne-prone really like this, as it is noncomedogenic," Dr. Jaliman adds. "It is also useful for patients who have eczema or rosacea, as it is not irritating."
While its effects on the skin are well known, some believe that ingesting hyaluronic acid could also be beneficial. In 2000, ABC’s 20/20 popularized the hypothesis that a diet high in starchy vegetables that boost hyaluronic-acid production was responsible for the unusually smooth skin of elderly people in the Japanese village of Yuzuri Hara, where many residents live to be over 90.
