As first reported in The Fit Life, as part of a June 4 blog by Lisette Hilton, Boca resident Melanie Jeanteur has opened up a world of pampering possibilities to patients recovering from cancer treatments through the Spa Care Center (124 S. Federal Highway, 561/465-5070).

The Center offers massages, waxes, skin treatments, permanent makeup, manicures, pedicures and scalp massages—all of which are specifically tailored to customers trying to regain their footing after battling cancer or other health challenges.

For example, the Center uses special nail polish that helps to strengthen nails left brittle after chemotherapy treatment. Permanent makeup tattoos, meanwhile, can provide areola re-pigmentation.

Also worth noting: On the first Sunday of each month, the Spa Care Center offers free manicures to customers. Plus, Jeanteur has plans to expand. Expect the Spa Care Center to open a Fort Lauderdale location in the coming months, as well as one in the Orlando area. Jeanteur hopes to eventually franchise the spa and open more locations around the nation.
