Sugaring in DeSoto

Select Local Merchants

Erica Arancibia has two areas of expertise: getting rid of unwanted hair and caring for the skin underneath. She works with both hard and soft wax to clear away hair from almost any body part—though her specialty is Brazilians—and has aftercare products on hand to stave off irritation. She has also mastered the Alexandria sugaring technique, which removes hair in the direction of its growth for reduced discomfort. Erica never double-dips or uses recycled wax, and she always wears disposable gloves, both for hygiene purposes and in case she needs an emergency balloon.

In addition to her hair-removal services, Erica administers facials and peels. Her skincare treatments target conditions from dryness to acne with technology such as ultrasound treatments and crystal-free microdermabrasion.

The white tulip chairs, sleek charcoal and orange d?cor, and recessed lighting may give Wink Threading Salon a modern feel, but their specialty service is rooted in tradition. Instead of relying on harsh wax, chemicals, or duct tape, the hair removal experts reach for a simple length of antibacterial thread. By twisting the threads together and sweeping them across the skin, the stylists are able to swiftly and precisely uproot stray hairs, creating smooth, sure lines on the brows, upper lip, chin, or forehead. A writer for D Magazine in the feature "The Best Eyebrow Job I've Ever Had" called Wink?s threadong process "less painful?than wax" and "less tedious than tweezing," and even claimed that afterwards she was so pleased that she "could [not] stop looking at [her brows] in the rearview mirror."

Ashley Parivar, crowned Miss Texas United States in 2009, praised Nu Body of Dallas as the city's best site for laser hair-removal treatments. The staff constantly trains in new hair-removal technology and techniques to improve the quality of their services for both men and women. In addition to convincing follicles to quit producing hair, three different laser systems treat skin issues such as age spots, wrinkles, or lingering sneers. Services such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels help faces shed the marks of time, and injections of Botox or Juvéderm fight signs of aging on a muscular level. Nu Body of Dallas's specialists make sure to educate patients after treatments so they can achieve the best results possible with proper aftercare.

Image Renu at Walnut Hill is owned and operated by five OB/GYN physicians, but it's the skin that gets the most attention there. Aestheticians rejuvenate skin with custom treatments designed to counteract the effects of aging and sun exposure. These treatments rely on laser technology, wrinkle-smoothing injectables, and exfoliating scrubs to erase blemishes; a personalized skin evaluation determines which treatment will prove most appropriate for your complexion?s needs. Laser light, for example, zaps away unwanted hair, spider veins, and evidence of sun damage. Microdermabrasion facials exfoliate dead skin cells with tiny abrasives, and custom-blended chemical peels strip away the skin?s uppermost layer without short-circuiting the cybernetic wires beneath its surface.
