Smooth and Skinny is a fat-zapping facility where a staff of expert medical aestheticians uses cutting-edge, noninvasive technologies to reduce cellulite, leaving bodies slimmer and more toned. The med spa?s multitude of treatment options includes Endermologie and VelaShape systems, which use everything from light and radio frequencies to massage rollers and suction to target the deep-seated connective tissues that harbor cellulite and its various criminal accomplices. In addition to fat-fighting technology, Smooth and Skinny offers other beautification treatments including spray tanning and teeth whitening.
The Finest Nails & Spa offers enough services to create an entire day of pampering. Nail appointments range from express mani-pedis to full acrylics and silk wraps. In a nearby private treatment room, facials and microdermabrasion treatments prep facial canvases for eyelash extensions and permanent makeup applications. An aesthetician also removes unwanted hair across the body and its shadow. Days can end with a custom massage, where therapists combine Swedish, deep-tissue, and shiatsu techniques to help bodies unwind.
Unlike regular saunas, SmartSweat's infrared saunas do not create a choking humidity or rely on black-market dragons for power. Instead, a gentle heat encourages sweating to discharge harmful toxins while boosting circulation and aiding weight-loss efforts. Available in fitness clubs and tanning salons across Texas, infrared saunas help keep clients healthy and relaxed while easing the discomfort caused by chronic pain.
Bodycentre Wellness Spa brings well-being back to bodies through treatments that range from nonsurgical cellulite reduction to laser teeth whitening. The spa's massage therapists listen receptively to client cues during therapies that may be tailored toward simple relaxation or enhanced with hot rocks, reflexology, or a hydrating herbal body wrap. Similarly customizable skincare treatments range from traditional facials with aromatherapy to photo-rejuvenation, which uses the healing power of light to stimulate collagen production in sun-damaged skin or aging vacation slides. For internal cleansing, clients can opt to schedule colon hydrotherapy sessions with an experienced practitioner or retreat into the privacy of a Health Mate dry sauna, crafted from Canadian cedar and equipped with amenities such as a CD sound system and reading lamp.
