For the past 25 years, International Beauty Center's team has had the same specialty: electrolysis. Despite the advent of laser hair removal and seemingly similar treatments, it remains the only one approved by the FDA for permanent hair removal. It's versatile, too; it's equally effective for detail work, like hair removal on the lip, and treatments for large expanses of skin, like the chest or the back. The team's Apilus Platinum device, handled by a Certified Professional Electrologist, works on all skin tones and hair types?including thin hair, coarse hair, and the rarest type of hair, spontaneously-occurring ponytails.
Within the confines of their comfortable lounge environment, Salon Colour Bar's experienced stylists provide clients with ample and affordable custom-blended hair coloring options. For guests who like tweak their manes on the regular, the salon's Colour Membership grants members perks such as one monthly color treatment, VIP goodies, and loyalty points for every dollar spent. In addition to services such as color-to-go, nails, and waxing services, Salon Colour Bar strongly encourages groups of friends to come together to experience the joys of their weekly movie nights.
Though many salons tout themselves as eco-friendly, Keep Austin Gorgeous, a certified-organic boutique, backs that claim up with a fleet of organic products and a marked absence of parabens, formaldehyde, and ingredients tested on animals. At the center of this whirlwind of natural beauty stands founder Brizy Tait, who wields the earth-embracing products as she readies local celebrities, such as reggaeton singers Angel y Khriz, for gigs and television appearances.
Tait’s staff shares in the dedication to healthy beauty products. The mane masters and aestheticians use items from 100% Pure Cosmetics, Kevin Murphy, and Xtreme Lashes during appointments and dole out advice in their Green Girl Guide on swapping out chemical-laden makeup for nourishing cosmetics.
Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Patrick H. Beckham taps his 40 years of experience to lead a skilled staff of technicians in performing Luxe Body Spa's full menu of medical spa treatments and technology-assisted therapies. The staff acquaints patrons with the nuances of its menu of cosmetic procedures during free consultations, elucidating the skin-sloughing power of manually exfoliating microdermabrasion sessions and breaking down the spider-vein-, unwanted-hair-, and fine-line-conquering power of laser therapy. Visitors can explore the benefits of laser body contouring with the Lapex 2000 Lipo Laser to remove stubborn fat deposits unmoved by boot-camp classes, dieting, or promises of a peaceful life on a farm upstate.
The cosmetic experts at Gleam Whitening concentrate all their efforts on making teeth brighter. Their laser-activated whitening system treats teeth discolored from culprits such as coffee, wine, cigarettes, and tea. Platinum, Gold, and Silver packages entail varying amounts of time beneath the laser's blue glow. Whether using a cheek retractor or trays, the whitening technicians are able to bypass much of the tooth sensitivity caused by peroxide interacting with the gums.
In the past 14 years, Eye LASIK Austin has helped improve the eyesight of thousands of patients. The center routinely ensures that it possesses the most technologically advanced equipment, allowing the nine on-staff surgeons to better produce dramatic results for their patients. When performing blade-free iLASIK treatments, for example, the surgeons begin by using WaveScan diagnostic technology to collect a detailed, three-dimensional image of the patient's eyes. This collected data then helps them guide the laser as they reshape the cornea, often helping the patient achieve 20/20 vision, or better. Besides LASIK surgery, the center also offers vision-enhancing services such as advanced surface ablation and photorefractive keratectomy.
