Named one of the Top Spas and Med Spas in Tarrant County by the Fort Worth Business Press in 2009, The Spa At the Village's aestheticians rejuvenate clients' skin and spirits with spa and holistic treatments. The extensive roster of services, which ranges from facials and massages to hydrotherapy and weight loss, helps guests balance internal health and external beauty.
Spa parties make each birthday or bachelorette party a simultaneously fun and beautifying event, and the wellness club can help celebrate birthdays and holidays with special promotions and gifts. The spa's boutique also hawks high-end organic ?minence products, HerbaSway serums, and FarmHouse Fresh products, ensuring that clients can exfoliate, tone, and moisturize the complexion of a favorite teddy bear or a sleeping grandmother in the comfort of their own homes.
After running her own spa in South Africa, Elize van Beljon ferried over to the States to open Spa By Di Vine?s stately stone-flanked doors in 2008. Trained throughout the globe in skincare, massage therapy, and makeup artistry, Elize boasts more than 28 years of professional experience and an extensive list of spa-centered certifications to help clients to refine skin and soothe tense bodies. Each visit begins with a personalized consultation to determine skin type, treatment options, and product preferences before delving into the tension-melting session. The spa?s selection of services consists solely of pharmaceutical-grade, clinically proven, and FDA?approved regimens that ensure a pampering experience as science-centered as sipping champagne from an Erlenmeyer flask.
Helmed by registered nurse Marie Reyes, SkinSpa Med's staff of licensed aestheticians and massage therapists pampers appearances with a wide variety of cosmetic treatments. The med spa's stable of six noninvasive lasers zaps away sagging skin and undesirable texture, rendering faces or cellulite-afflicted areas smooth and taut enough for quarter-bouncing contests. Alternatively, Dr. Kevin Light consults with guests interested in invasive procedures to dramatically alter features through cosmetic surgery. To accommodate frequent customers, SkinSpa Med offers memberships that allow guests to mix and match multiple treatments each month.
Dan Schildgen, owner and general manager of Calista Skin & Laser Center, has put together a skilled team of medical professionals that specializes in nonsurgical aesthetic treatments. Medical director Ann Nolen, DO, is not only board certified in both family-practice and regenerative medicine, but also a member of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. Dr. Nolen oversees the work of a certified senior laser technician with more than 15 years of experience, a registered nurse who helps people reach their weight-loss goals, and a highly trained laser-tattoo-removal expert who erases evidence of past fascinations with unicorns.
Aside from its knowledgeable beauty mavens, the center sets itself apart with some of the most advanced technology available. The eMax system's elōs technology combines bipolar radiofrequency, light, and diode-laser energies to target wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and unwanted hair. The eMatrix sublative rejuvenation system addresses acne scars and lesions, whereas ReFirme skin-tightening treatments create smoother, firmer appearances. The crew can also reduce fat and cellulite with VelaShape body contouring, giving clients enough confidence to stroll the beach in bikinis or participate in their offices’ Hot Pants Days.
Aestheticians and laser technicians come together for the common good of skin at Skin Studio & Laser Boutique, combining their expertise to rid the body of unwanted hair, visible veins, and hyper-pigmented or dulled complexions. After a consultation and a skin analysis, aestheticians customize facials to each client’s needs, helping clear acne, treat rosacea, fight aging, and unfreeze funny faces. They also apply custom airbrush tans to camouflage cellulite and stretch marks and enhance eyes with lash tabbing—a process that adds length and volume to natural lashes and lasts about a week. When not targeting problem follicles or splotchy capillaries, laser technicians calibrate their equipment to hone in on sagging skin, using the painless, light-based technology to increase production of collagen and elastin and restore lost firmness.
Elixir Salon & Day Maker's stylists add texture to hair with an unconventional substance?marshmallow. Marshmallow root, that is. It's one of the many botanically based Aveda lotions, oils, and creams the salon favors. Their makeups, for example, might be made from Brazilian nut-seed pigment, cinnamon from Madagascar, or the anti-oxidants of ripe berries.
But amid the bazaar of natural products, one still finds the sleek plastic casing of modern technology. Elixir's signature HeadMapping process applies highlights systematically, while the microdermabrasion smoothes away signs of age with a crystal wand. Continuous education keeps the stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists abreast of the latest trends and techniques in their fields without calling a psychic hotline.
