At locations in Frisco and Farmers Branch, the Injection Artistry team uses Botox and Juv?derm to help clients achieve the looks they want. Many are familiar with these products' ability to smooth crows' feet and forehead lines, but the clinical artists of this med spa also use it for some unexpected ends: neck lifts, nose contouring, and even the erasure of acne scars. Along with chemical peels, these customized Botox and Juv?derm treatments refresh facades and help clients feel more like themselves than just wearing a jumpsuit with a giant picture of their face on it.
Before Dr. Mary Anne Peck founded Eyecare and Eyewear in 1984, she earned her doctorate in optometry at the University of Houston College of Optometry and interned at Fort Carson Army Base. Her associate, Dr. Karen Allen, earned her doctorate at the University of Houston and traveled to Georgia for an internship at Fort Benning. After putting her skills to work at a large ophthalmology practice in Florida, she moved back to Dallas, where she practiced refractive and cataract surgery at a surgery center.
Together, Drs. Peck and Allen helm a staff of assistants and therapeutic opticians who stay on top of their ever-changing field by constantly studying and never shutting their eyelids. Their vision-improving services include prescriptions crafted with wave-front technology and retinal exams performed without dilation. In addition to contact lenses, they stock stylish frames by brands such as Gucci, Rayban, and Calvin Klein.
After shedding the extra pounds that came along with hypothyroidism and three pregnancies, Melody Chandler founded Texas Fit Chicks Boot Camp to share her weight-loss strategies and support with other women.

In an effort to challenge muscle memory, the team shakes up workout regimens by using different techniques and equipment?including kettlebells, resistance bands, and lead sweatpants?each day. Melody?s team also helps exercisers retain their results by supplying nutrition support with meal plans and recipes that use healthy ingredients.
Led by licensed aesthetician licensed vocational nurse Cindy Hunt, the laser specialists and aestheticians at Derma-Aesthetic Laser and Electrolysis Center operate under the slogan "reveal the beauty within," and deploy current technology to address a range of cosmetic concerns. Wielding an FDA-approved device, technicians help to diminish the appearance of hair, wrinkles, broken facial capillaries, and spider veins on legs, which, like most fall TV pilots, gradually fade from view over several months. The center also complements its beauty-enhancing treatments such as facial peels and fillers with skincare products that work to smooth and rejuvenate the skin.
Thanks to 25 years working in the corporate world, Connie Murphy, Touch With Intent's licensed massage therapist, has firsthand knowledge of work-related stress and the health issues it can bring. Murphy brings this knowledge to her massage sessions, which she tailors to each individual needs. This might mean calming the nervous system with soothing Swedish strokes, softening tight muscles with hot stones, or delving into sore spots with the more insistent pressure of deep-tissue or trigger-point therapy. They also offer pre-natal massages, though not couple massages. Aromatherapy scents add a more comforting sensory element than samples from a tableside gravy boat, and the organic products she uses help her hands glide over her clients? muscles in a natural fashion.
