MEDermis Facials' board-certified medical director captains a team of certified laser specialists and medical aestheticians, who help their clients reach aesthetic goals with the help of advanced technology. Together, the team has safely erased more than 200,000 unwanted tattoos of all shapes, sizes, and colors using Lutronic Spectra lasers. The cutting-edge apparatuses emit q-switched beams of high-energy light, which help disband ink particles and prepare them to be naturally jettisoned from the body via the lymphatic system?technical speak for "laser eraser". The lasers flit over skinscapes, fostering smooth, even skin with minimal risk of scarring, disrupting natural pigments, or attracting bored cats. In addition to getting rid of unwanted ink, the talented staff can also help to correct skin troubles with peels, microdermabrasion, and other skin care services.

Skin savant Stacy McClure tackles epidermal issues with her menu of facials, waxing, and tanning treatments. Hydrating masks unclog pores, gentle chemical peels and microdermabrasion sessions buff away dead or damaged skin cells, and back facials detoxify and protect posterior-facing skin. Waxing sessions eradicate fuzz from the face and body with top-shelf waxes before calming lotions soothe freshly pruned skin. McClure’s head- to-toe airbrushing services enhance physiques with golden hues, and her lash-tinting procedures draw attention to faces easier than training butterflies to alight on cheekbones.

Before earning his diploma in Swedish massage from the Austin School of Massage Therapy, licensed massage therapist Don A. Hampton discovered a passion for helping others heal while working as a medic in the U.S. Air Force and Texas Army National Guard. At Hampton Bodywerks Massage Spa, his highly trained hands do battle with tightly wound tissue, tension, and pain, arming themselves from an arsenal of relaxation-inducing tools that includes hot stones, salt stones, and therapeutic herbs. Ginger, turmeric, and lemongrass are central players in Hampton's Thai herbal ball massage?a 5,000-year-old practice designed to relieve pain and inflammation using a steamed herbal compress and gentle circular movements. Other specialty services include the Balinese-inspired jamu massage, which energizes the body with acupressure, long strokes, and percussion-like drumming, as well as sugar-scrub body treatments that soften skin using a blend of white and brown sugars, grape-seed and canola oils, and other ingredients favored by beautiful scones.
