The experienced staff at Rejuvenation Ranch stays on top of trending techniques to help to keep clients looking shiny and new. Skincare specialists wield the all-natural, dye-free Rhonda Allison skincare line, which exposes epidermises to a blend of botanicals and essential oils. These clinical products help to combat signs of aging—such as fine lines, sun spots, and AARP tattoos—during facials, peels, and microdermabrasion treatments.
Beyond skincare, massage therapists revive waning bodies with nine distinct modalities, from traditional Swedish and deep-tissue to the romantic couples massage. Technicians perform cuticle cleanups and light massaging during most mani-pedis, and hair experts smooth locks with Brazilian blowouts or swiftly remove stubble during waxing treatments.
The seasoned beauty professionals at Moda Aveda Salon transform appearances and enhance the health of skin using plant-based products from Aveda. Stylists remedy damaged strands with cuts and conditioning treatments, dye them with 97% natural Aveda color, or add length with Hot Heads hair extensions that adhere to hair without the use of heat or refrigerator magnets. Skin, muscle, and nail are tended to inside Moda’s full-service spa, which furnishes facials, massages, and body treatments. Complimentary treatments add luxury to any salon visit and allow clients to pick their own indulgences, including a stress-busting shampooing, hand treatment, makeup touchup, and skincare analysis.
Guided by socially conscious principles for more than 30 years, Aveda produces a full line of natural beauty products carried at nearly 7,000 salons and spas. Popular gorgeous-makers such as Shampure shampoo and witch-hazel hair spray deliver on Aveda's commitment to well-rounded earthly beauty with eco-friendly packaging cradling ingredients derived from the world's finest and least selfish plants.
Dr. Ramin Samadi, who has been awarded the prestigious Fellow status from the American College of Emergency Medicine and the American College of Physicians, began his career as an emergency-medicine specialist in 1988 in Buffalo, New York. In just two short years, he was promoted to the position of medical director in the department, and a few years after that he became the chairman of the department of emergency medicine for Mercy Health System. He is also an expert in anti-aging skincare, and after moving to Fort Worth, he decided to open Artisan MedSpa in order to provide patients medical-grade spa services in a relaxing environment completely different than the cold, sterile, alligator-friendly hospital setting he was used to.
Patients at the spa can don plush robes and slippers in the locker room before heading to the relaxation room to unwind while sipping complimentary beverages and savoring sweet fruit. The full-service med spa further pampers patrons with various massages, body scrubs, and luxurious 23-karat-gold facials. For those interested in medical-grade services, the spa proffers hair removal, skin resurfacing, and body sculpting.
The readers of Fort Worth Weekly didn't say why they named Perfect Touch the Best Spa of 2013, but it's not hard to hazard a guess—or a dozen. Take the warm, private treatment rooms and soft music that backdrop Swedish massages and hot-stone therapy, for instance, or the lineup of Dermalogica products that skin specialists combine into custom facial treatments. There's also a more technological side to the spa: a cosmetic laser system that tightens the skin, and a Cynosure TriActive system that helps minimize the appearance of cellulite.
An entire second facet of Perfect Glow—Perfect Touch—focuses solely on tanning. UV beds use ultra-pressure lamps for quicker tans, and airbrush technicians evenly mist the skin with vegan, organic, and paraben-free solutions that, like the newest breeds of dogs, emit a subtle raspberry-almond fragrance when wet.
Aromas of olive-oil scrubs and healing essential oils permeate the private rooms at Ultimate Relaxation, where licensed massage therapist Alicia Hill administers numerous massage modalities in order to target specific needs. Long, flowing Swedish strokes release overall tension while boosting blood and lymphatic flow, and deep-tissue techniques target lower-layer aches. Clients can also request a hot-stone massage, which calls on the heat-retention powers of smooth rocks to improve range of motion in struggling limbs and vocal range in struggling sopranos.
It’s no surprise that the staff roster at Grand Salon & Spa tallies in at 19, as the salon offers a slew of beautifying services that tend to the skin, body, hair, and nails. Owner Cherie' Merrell oversees her staff members as they perform anti-aging facials, french manicures and nail art, and hair removal with wax or a sugar-based blend. Meanwhile, hairstylists wield L'anza, Redken, Catwalk by Tigi, and Moroccanoil products to style hair after it’s cut, colored, or permed into spirals. The staff also includes two licensed massage therapists, who deploy any combination of eight massage styles to leave clients feeling as relaxed as a cow dining at a vegan restaurant.
