Journeyz Spa is a one-woman shop run by Karen Lain, a licensed aesthetician and makeup expert. In addition to offering facials that address everything from acne to aging, she also performs free skin consultations. During these one-on-ones, she advises her clients on the most suitable products to use for their skin types and answers any questions they may have about specific facial conditions such as rosacea or Kool-Aid mustache. Her waxing treatments banish hair from both men’s and women’s bodies, and her makeup lessons teach novices how to apply foundations, blushes, and liners.
Doctors Michele and Marc Ibanez head up Ideal You Medspa, a clinic devoted to delivering modern beauty treatments in a welcome and caring environment. They and their team rejuvenate faces and bodies with services such as laser hair removal, laser skin tightening, and beauty injections, as well as traditional facials, chemical peels, and waxing. Those looking to shed a few pounds can take advantage of the med spa?s weight-loss program, which works to promote good nutrition, stabilize blood-sugar levels, and minimize blood frosting levels.
Though Dr. Javier Alonso specializes in vein, cardiovascular, and thoracic issues at Texas Vein and Vascular, he and his staff administer a full spectrum of cosmetic treatments at TVV Medispa that go beyond spider-vein removal. Injectables, peels, and resurfacing lasers keep complexions as smooth and even as a face-shaped shuffleboard. Lasers target both unwanted hair and sagging areas of skin around the face as well as the body, which can be toned or soothed through wraps and massages.
Under the direction of Dr. Ruben J. Almanza, the staff at Imagen Medical Spa overhauls clients' guises with a roster of med-spa treatments. Skin savants perform laser hair-removal treatments to deforest follicular fields and inject Botox and Juv?derm to correct slack skin. The spa's licensed aesthetician rejuvenates visages with peels and facials, and complimentary consultations ensure guests select the correct treatments and complete their tax returns.
The staff at Leslee's Hair and Skin easily customizes services to ensure clients’ hair and skin needs are met. Professionals cut and highlight hair and wax away unwanted fuzz on brows, backs, and tails. They also tackle skin issues that range from rosacea and eczema to acne and signs of aging with PCA Skin facials and peels.
A Paul Mitchell Focus salon, Salon Palomo employs more than 20 stylists who unleash expert skills on coiffures, garnering a Caller-Times Best of the Best award in 2010. For haircuts, the salon’s savvy stylists first wash customers’ hair to remove any lingering dinge or emotional ties to its previous style. They can also swathe locks in a high-end protein treatment. A complimentary color consultation with a mane maintainer allows head strings to ponder a new hue for disguising grays and intimidating snakes. Relaxing and beautifying services extend to full body waxing, nail art, and eyelash perms.
Newly expanded to 3,000 square feet, Salon Palomo ensconces guests in aristocratic environs with gold drapery, crown-molding-topped cabinetry, warm metallic hues, a sparkling chandelier, and mirrors that speak with Elizabethan accents.
