At Casablanca Anti-Aging & Laser Centre, technicians call upon their extensive training to bring clients the newest innovations in aesthetic procedures. Clients rely on them to permanently laser off unwanted hair, revitalize skin with chemical peels and photofacials, and pump up lips with injectable fillers or guided bee stings. Aside from manually improving exteriors, the doc and his staff also help visitors help themselves by doling out nutritional advice and creating personalized meal and exercise plans.
What started as a beauty shop operating out of Aisha Khalid's home has now, 20 years later, blossomed into 10 full-service, women-only salons. The aestheticians at Aisha's Salon & Spa were some of the first to bring threading to the faces of Houston ladies, whisking away unruly brows, chin fuzz, and emperor-tamarin mustaches with a thin cotton filament. For body depilation, they turn to traditional waxing, and body polishes and facials leave skin rejuvenated and smooth. Stylists trim, straighten, and color tresses, and makeup artists apply finishing touches with traditional or airbrush products.
Since opening its first eyebrow-centered salon within a Walmart in Indianapolis, Seva has expanded its locations and services. The eyebrow specialists remain true to their roots by creating flattering arches with threading and waxing techniques. Additionally, they tackle signs of aging and acne with skin-specific facials.
There is no follicle too wispy or fuzz too peachy to avoid the professional waxen masters at European Wax Center. Before your defoliation, you'll be slathered like so much beef brisket with the Center's calming cleanser and a pre-depilatory oil that fights irritation and redness. A very special, alcohol-free blend of polymers and beeswax is specially designed to uproot hair with nary a pang of pain. Afterward, your newly smooth skin will be pampered with an ingrown-hair-and-breakout-despising solution.
Though Renude specializes in bikini and Brazilian waxing, the cozy skin-care parlor also provides a long list of other waxing and skin-care services. A Renude Facial includes a professional skin analysis to ensure your treatment matches your skin’s needs before your mug gets a thorough cleansing, exfoliation, steam wrap, extractions, mask, and nutrient massage ($80). Like the satisfaction of peeling plastic-cling decorations from the window after the holidays, a PCA peel lifts the appearance of fine lines off your face, evens your skin tone and texture, and clears blemishes ($150 including a post-treatment care kit).
Organic Lotus Spa’s extensive list of pedicure treatments treat weary feet to a buffet of sweets, fruits, scrubs, and soaks. Opt for a chocolate-mint service to soak your leg roots in tenebrous chocolate milk finished with a butter massage or give your steppers a much-needed massage with a reflexology pedi. A hot-stone pedi places warm riverstones between your toes to relax the joints, as well as massages your feet and legs with the smooth, blissful stones. If you’re especially hard on your feet, a sport pedicure will soften up skin, and a peppermint clay mask will infuse feet with the newness of just-purchased sneakers. Combine your pedicure like Voltron pieces with one of the available manicures, including the French manicure, topped with a white tip; the in-and-out 20-minute Lunch manicure, with a hop-to shaping and cuticle treatment; or the Classic manicure, a half hour that includes hydration, massage, and polish from a wide selection of OPI lacquers.
