At more than 30 locations in the Houston area, clients check in at marble-fronted reception desks to meet with a member of Darque Tan's International Smart Tan Network—staff trained to determine the best path to their bronzing goals. Sessions take place in private rooms that line a column-flanked hallway, where five different levels of UV beds give skin the perfect level of tanning. Mystic Tan and VersaSpa sunless-tanning systems imbue clients with a hydrating, natural-looking glow, which can be customized according to skin tone, desired shade, and spirit animal. A full-time cleaning staff keeps each center in pristine conditions by referencing a 50-point inspection system. Most locations have books, televisions, and kids’ play areas to keep children entertained while adults are bronzing.
Med spa technicians and aestheticians are required to have physician supervision because they perform medical treatments, but the exact laws defining what "supervision" means vary from state to state and are often unclear. Sometimes a physician doesn't even have to be onsite. But Woodlands Laser & Aesthetics' doctors work there full time and do not oversee additional facilities or nurses, unlike other med spa physicians.
Led by board-certified internist Dr. Nadeem Jamil, they use lasers, injectables, and body wraps to beautify faces and slim silhouettes. Dr. Jamil personally performs the cosmetic injections, and he creates custom weight-loss programs that take into consideration the client's personal goals, medical history, nutritional habits, and metabolism.
In his 16 years of hairstyling experience, Mark Harmon has seen a lot of fads come and go. So rather than simply copy a trend, he works closely with his clients to come up with individual styles that will make them feel beautiful but still work with their particular lifestyle. But while his innovative methods and intense training make him adept at styling, coloring, or designing updos on the fly, he understands that many clients have trouble verbalizing their desires, and so he encourages clients to bring in pictures of hairstyles or celebrity mug shots in order to help direct their service.

Away from the salon floor, aestheticians enhance skin with facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and chemical peels. Massage therapists enhance sessions with warm stones and aromatherapy oils selected to reduce stress.

For more than a quarter of a century, the aestheticians at Perfections have beautified and pampered patrons with a rejuvenating cornucopia of skincare, hair-removal, and massage services. In addition to microdermabrasion, electrolysis, and Synergie AMS cellulite-reduction treatments, they provide services specially designed for people who have undergone medical procedures. These treatments aim to mend skin damaged by chemotherapy or cosmetic operations. Before appointments begin, a clinician consults with the client to customize a plan of action and ensure that staff members don?t accidentally hit the patron?s self-destruct switch disguised as a button nose.
President and vice-president John and Cara Eckerman have developed an efficient boot-camp program that effectively cultivates muscle farms with a fruitful yield. Expert instructors lead new recruits through 45-minute classes that fluidly meld stretching, core-toning, and strength-boosting exercises into full-body fat-blasting sessions. Motivated groups help propel fitness-seekers throughout high-intensity interval training that sheds calories and stress faster than a robo-lion’s rise to the top of the food chain. A convenient schedule will leave busy boot campers with enough time to maintain their normal lives, regular routines, and Chia Pet collections, while indoor facilities ensure that visitors will get a workout regardless of rain, snow, or locust swarms.
