The expert aestheticians at Brow Spa have never met an unwanted strand they couldn't eliminate. Using a cotton thread, they rid facial areas—such as brows, upper lips, and sideburns—of hair by plucking it out by the follicle. Waxing treatments likewise eradicate excess locks from faces, as well as other body parts such as backs and legs. Besides hair removal, the Brow Spa team also specializes in other beautifying treatments, including tinting lashes, exfoliating faces with herbal bleaches, and adorning bodies with henna tattoos.

When Karoline Vaz immigrated to St. Louis from Brazil, she was inundated with local support to help learn English. She vowed to return the favor, but wasn't sure how.

Now in the comfort of her cozy studio, Karoline works alongside her fellow therapist, Tarris. Clients can seek their expertise for a wide variety of therapeutic techniques––sports massage, hot-stone therapy, and deep-tissue pressure to name a few.

Quality Weight Loss's on-site physicians supervise noninvasive laser weight-loss treatments that sculpt bodies into smoother figures and target specific areas for inch loss. Both of the treatments begin with an assessment of the targeted areas, followed by the laser application. Featured on The Doctors, Zerona's FDA-approved cold lasers strive to emulsify adipose tissue, shrinking fat cells and passing them through the body during the normal process of detoxification. Similarly, Lapex BCS LipoLasers simulate fat cells to release triglycerides, allowing the cells to shrink without being prodded by a Rick Moranis lookalike. This treatment involves direct skin contact as it focuses on targeted areas and the whole body with a combination of paddles and probes. Patients shouldn't feel heat during either treatment, and can simply relax, listen to music, or try to list the 37 words that rhyme with laser.
