A Touch of Heaven Salon Massage & Day Spa stocks a large inventory of well-respected pampering products. Nail technicians employ OPI and Gelish polish, and hairstylists primp tresses with smart Solutions, Redken, Sexy Hair, and KMS products. An assemblage of massage therapists and aestheticians performs indulgent work at the spa too, allying to relax and beautify their clients. They execute 10 varieties of massage, from the gentle, simple Swedish to the choreographed complexity of the four-handed massage—performed by two therapists or one octopus also juggling four tennis balls. They combine treatments of the body's inner tissues with herbal or peppermint-scented wraps to rejuvenate the outer layer.
Outside of the private rooms lies the salon proper, where stylists carefully ply their craft on the hair and nails of their patrons. They imbue locks with new color, wax away unwanted hair, and even provide spray tans to maintain a summery glow throughout winter's tenure.
The skincare specialists at each independently owned and operated Facelogic Spa follow the same mantra: to bring out the best in each client. To do this, the technicians work through a brief questionnaire and skin analysis to determine which of the menu’s 10-plus facials best suit each client's skin. Signature facials rely on Facelogic’s own Signature skincare line, which uses botanical-based formulas and advanced cosmetic and pharmaceutical combinations to cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize. The Elite facial covers skin with products from brands such as Glo Therapeutics and Éminence organic products. All facials include an arm-and-shoulder massage, and can be enhanced with a range of add-ons, including chemical peels and sonnets composed by the aesthetician.
Though White Pearl Medical Spa specializes in a range of image-enhancing approaches, elos technology plays the starring role. By combining radio frequencies and laser light, the elos hand piece can vanquish hair follicles, diminish wrinkles and age spots, or ease acne with a simple fine-tuning of the controls and a glimpse of the blemish's mug shot. Aside from laser services, the staff smoothes skin with injectable dermal fillers, purifies pores with facials, and sloughs off dead cells with microdermabrasion treatments.
San Antonio's Slender Solution & Spa helps patients stay in control of their calorie intake with medically supervised, custom diet plans that can help melt away those last few stubborn pounds resistant to exercise and more generalized diet plans. The presiding physician and a team of nurse-practitioners consult closely with patients before crafting diets and supplementing them with metabolism-boosting B-12 injections, appetite suppressants, pound-shedding HCG injections, and tear-inspiring pep talks.
In addition to helping clients stay trim, the spa offers a full menu of beautifying services, including custom facials, body wraps, eyelash and eyebrow tinting, and massages. Decadent treatments, such as the luxurious 24-karat gold facial, treat skin to intense ant-wrinkle protection while reviving surfaces with youthful vibrancy. Clients may extend their day of beauty with a raw sugar glow scrub that polishes away dead skin cells or indulge in a back facial that cleanses hard-to-reach spots to reveal smooth, even-toned skin.
Tucked away in a serene, baby-blue den just inside Within Glow Hair Salon & Spa, Eunice Drummond helps skin stay youthful and radient with expert care regimens. Focusing most of her efforts on the face, Drummond performs more than a dozen varieties of facials and peels. Her anti-aging facial helps tighten and tone muscles with zaps from a micro-current device, and her PCA peel gently resurfaces dull patches with the help of a therapeutic acid blend. In addition to her facial services, Eunice is also versed in Parafango treatments. Through the application of a geothermal mask, the treatment works to slim away inches and reduce cellulite, mainly by scaring away lingering cheeseburgers with its scariest ghost impression.
At Beauty by Brazil, Brazilian wax doesn't just refer to a style of waxing. It also refers to the wax itself, which is imported from the South American country and includes its trademark natural ingredients and sensitive-skin formula. Of course, services range far beyond hair removal. Aestheticians also apply the complex formulas of glycolic and enzyme chemical peels to erase wrinkles and blemishes, or they perform multistep European facials to hydrate and cleanse the skin. Clients can even schedule professional makeup applications, either at the salon itself or on location.
