North Cypress Family Practice & Laser Center’s resident physician Dr. Amrit Thandi has experienced the evolution of lasers over the past decade by serving as a Luminary Advisor for Alma Lasers Inc.⎯the brand she still relies on to tighten slack skin, remove hair, and rejuvenate damaged complexions. The technology helps her maintain a practice that avoids invasive procedures, although she can perform minor surgeries at her office or refer patients to other specialists within the North Cypress Medical Center.
A graduate of Dayanand Medical College in Punjab, India, Dr. Thandi completed her residency in family practice at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Today, she practices general medicine and performs cosmetic enhancements with equal care aided by an aesthetician and a medical assistant. Dr. Thandi meets with each of her patients and has a hand in every procedure, from cosmetic injections to preventative care exams. The two aspects of the practice seem to balance out. Gentle body-sculpting treatments can be incorporated into a weight management regime, and up-to-date medical acuity can address dermatological concerns such as psoriasis or an embarrassing tattoo of the Pythagorean theorem.

A lineup of Aquage, Redken, and Pureology products gives the stylists at Up In Tangles an ample palate with which to transform drab tresses into well-coiffed works of art. They paint strands with regular or corrective color to add depth to new cuts and tint eyebrows and lashes to match newly minted hair hues without covering brows with mustache appliqués. Keratin-based straightening systems change up mane texture, along with regular and feather extensions. The stylists can use Jane Iredale mineral makeup or bridal airbrush makeup to put the finishing touches on their masterpiece canvases.
Island Tan detoxifies the body with calorie-burning, form-whittling Formostar infrared body wraps. During each 50-minute treatment, guests repose beneath a sextet of silicone pads that rest on problem spots such as thighs and hips for women, abdomens and chests for men, and hooves for minotaurs. Patrons control the temperature of their incubating blanket, releasing the desired amount of far-infrared heat that will penetrate the skin's surface. As the mercury of each body's internal thermometer creeps up, bodies may sizzle away between 900 and 1,400 calories, or the equivalent of seven boiling cauldrons of rainbow sprinkles. Most patients require 6–10 sessions to blast away noticeable inches.
Journey's Hair Studio & Spa Jaeger's proficient aestheticians perform pampering facial packages that feature quality Glotherapeutics products. One-hour facials indulge pores with pharmaceutical-grade elixirs that fight acne by simultaneously cleansing and hydrating skin more effectively than a Gatorade bubble bath. Skin curators also treat each client into a relaxing mini-massage of the feet, legs, and hands. Once the products have rinsed away, clients often notice an increased vibrancy in their skin and an absence of children trying to connect the dots on their face.
