It's oft said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but Lindsey Coleman does her best to transfer it from her eye to her clients' bodies. Coleman honed her skills in the Forth Worth beauty dojo known as Ogle School Hair, Skin, & Nails before bringing her suite of skills to Legacy Salons and Day Spa. Though Coleman offers some hair-focused services such as eyelash extensions or waxing, her main focus remains the skin. She reduces pore size, banishes wrinkles, and infuses the body's largest organ with essential nutrients through a variety of delivery systems, ranging from facials to body scrubs and wraps. Like the sun, Coleman's even capable of darkening the skin with her airbrush tans or fusing hydrogen into helium with her hair dryer.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas?its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries?Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
If there's one thing the team at Mansfield Dental Center knows for sure, it's that patients love to be comfortable. They've designed nearly every facet of the office to make patients feel like they're in a spa instead of a dental office. It starts in the lobby, where the staff serves lattes and hot chocolate, guests surf the web, and kids play in the video-game room. Then, in the treatment rooms, heated pillows and blankets assuage patients while they watch satellite TV. When it's time for treatment, the staff uses a combination of numbing gel and a DentalVibe tool, which is designed to reduce injection pain by gently vibrating the gums.
A comprehensive and modern dentistry office, Benbrook Dental treats kids and adults with the latest techniques and technology. Putting patient comfort first, the staff uses equipment such as the Isolite, an ergonomic bite block that allows patients to comfortably keep mouths open during procedures, as well as digital x-rays that expose patients to less radiation than traditional x-rays. The office keeps kids entertained with video games, DVDs, and a play area. To ensure efficient visits, the staff also employs intra-oral cameras to get panoramic views of the whole mouth, and offers nitrous oxide and sedatives to ease nerves and foster deep relaxation during procedures.
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 teeth-whitening technicians at Smiling Bright help customers forge whiter smiles with professional-strength in-office and at-home treatments. Cool gray walls and rich, mulberry-toned ceilings envelop Smiling Bright's inviting interior, accented with undulating mirrors, a sleek leather sofa, and private, curtain-drawn treatment rooms. In-office sparkle sessions outfit chompers with a tray preloaded with clinical-strength whitening gel, after which an LED light activates peroxide molecules to coax out stains and nesting yellow finches obscuring the enamel. Smiling Bright's specialty at-home X Cell Erator whitening system comes equipped with the same powerful gel as the in-office treatments, along with a battery-operated whitening light, a list of tips and instructions, and a shade guide to assess how much teeth have improved and whether to ground them from after-school privileges.
