Once a licensed athletic trainer at the University of North Texas, Laura DePiazza calls on her corporeal expertise to assuage muscular tension with a spectrum of massage modalities. Before each treatment, she takes time to discuss issues with clients, whether they have questions about technique or mysterious pockets of tension. While she specializes in Swedish and sports massage, she also culls from several modalities during more targeted pro massage, which includes deep-tissue, myofascial, and trigger-point techniques, focusing on specific body parts if necessary. To customize each massage, Laura is also willing to collaborate with the client’s chiropractor and physician.
SkinFit Nation's aestheticians perform a panoply of services, with a lot of different goals in mind. However, each treatment shares the common goal of improving the skin. The staff use sugaring and waxing treatments to get rid of unwanted hair and show off smooth skin. They apply chemical peels and facials to even out pigment or diminish the appearance of wrinkles or acne. At times they tint the skin itself with airbrush tanning services, then dye eyelashes and eyebrows to complement new skin tones. When required, they blast away the top layer of dead skin cells with a microdermabrasion treatment, revealing fresh skin underneath and proving to everyone that you aren't just a robot in a person suit.
Tan It All bronzes bodies sans sunlight with traditional light-bed tanning and UV-free Mystic Tans. One month of super-bed tanning ($45 value) puts sallow skin through rigorous 10–20 minute melanin workouts to prime it for days spent outdoors or the eventual migration of humans to the sun. Otherwise, pelts of all shades can benefit from a month of red-light therapy ($80 value), which bombards skin surfaces with friendly visible-spectrum light within the comfort of a high-tech bed, seeking to shrink pores, smooth wrinkles, and give skin a healthy, toned appearance. By stimulating collagen and elastin production, the treatment can deliver a noticeably firmer and springier epidermis in as little as 30 days. For UV-free pigment popping, hop, skip, or teleport into a private individual chamber for a patented Mystic Tan ($20–$25 value), which applies 60-second spritzings of paraben-free tanning solution.
The Skin Spa’s licensed aesthetician, Kellen Crawford, uses Rhonda Allison skincare products, with which she has extensive training. Kellen didn’t start using this product line by accident. A few years back, when she was frustrated with adult acne, she began trying Rhonda Allison products, in addition to skin peels and microdermabrasion. These were the tools Kellen used to improve her complexion, and she carries the resulting inspiration with her every day as she renders custom facials, vitamin therapy, body treatments, and waxing services, not to mention the chemical peels that she found so helpful.
Christina Lynn favors funky, creative cuts. The stylist and graduate of North Texas Central Cosmetology lets her creativity blossom at Twisted Heads Salon, where she transforms overgrown locks or mundane styles into fresh hairdos that leap to life with color. Christina also specializes in hot fusion extensions, and she can transition from funky to classic with ease. The latter comes in handy when she performs special event hairstyling, sculpting elegant hairdos for weddings, proms, and laundry night at the queen's home.
