Advanced Medical Laser Center's owner and certified cosmetic therapist, Cindy Joshi, expertly zaps fuzz from clients with quick pulses from a GentleYag or Gentlelase laser. For darker skin types, she wields the Cynosure Apogee Elite, which includes a NdYag mode for darker skin types. During each appointment, Cindy glides the laser’s beams over skin, where it blasts more than 100 hairs per second, like an insult comedian whose childhood was ruined by one bad haircut. In addition to evicting follicular skin invaders from epidermal terrains, Cindy is experienced in microdermabrasion, licensed in micropigmentation, and certified in cosmetic therapy.
The Aveda brand is rooted in environmental sustainability, manufacturing organic products, using only bio-safe products in its salons, running on 100% certified wind power, and donating leftover hair trimmings to the local pillow fluffery. At Aveda Institute San Antonio, a future superstar stylist will tend to your every detail under the supervision of a licensed Aveda-trained educator.

Landscape the lawn of your head with a haircut and blow-dry ($16–$20) or single-process tint on your roots ($30) while weeding wily hairs from other parts of your body with plant-wax hair removal ($10–$40).

Lasting approximately 45–60 minutes, the process leaves a parcel of smooth skin that can remain sleek up to four weeks, easily enough time to infiltrate the secret mannequin cabal.

For some salons, threading is just an afterthought—a treatment tacked onto a long list of services in an attempt to stay abreast of the latest trends. But at Exquisite Threading, the ancient Indian art is front and center, headlining a treatment menu that bears little else beyond facials, body waxing, and intricate henna treatments. The focus allows the shop's eyebrow artists, who average 10 years of experience, to concentrate on creating clean, elegant arches in an environment free from the din of blow dryers. The threading process relies solely upon the quick loopings of a 100% cotton string, which whisks away facial hair without the irritation of shaving or the seasonal limitations of bobbing for hot caramel apples.:
