At Shelly's Advanced Skin Care, owner Shelly Pagnota and her team of trained and licensed aestheticians take a clinical approach to pampering their clients. This is most evident in their slate of rejuvenating facials. Aestheticians conduct nearly 15 types of facials, such as the age defense facial and the vitamin C peel and firm facial, which uses a combination of vitamins and glycolic acid to give the face a younger, firmer look. The staff adds on a chemical peel to every facial if needed, and also offers microdermabrasions and massage services.
The staff at Styles of India focuses solely on the art of hair removal to shape brows and remove unwanted fuzz across the entire physique. An ancient technique, threading makes use of pure cotton strands, rolled and lifted along the face and eyebrows to remove hair in a straight line—ideal for eyebrows or sculpting sideburns into the style Benjamin Franklin sported: lightning bolts. The technicians at Styles of India are also adept with wax, removing unwanted hair from legs, arms, and bikini lines.
Let it never be said that Lisa Moise doesn't listen to her customers. Years ago, as she was treating one of her clients, the two began talking about how nice it would be to have a salon where haircuts were more collaborative than cookie-cutter and pedicures didn't make people feel invisible from the feet up. Later, that same customer, Carrie McGehee, would join Lisa as a co-founder of Flower Mound Nails & More. Now, the two pursue their original goal, putting customers first during treatments that range from cuts and highlights to expert mani-pedis. As part of their pursuit of excellence, Lisa and Carrie have established strict standards for membership on their team, requiring their techs to be passionate, conversant, and trained in both customer service and relevant trade skills.
Arch Brows takes an organic, ayurvedic Indian approach to traditional spa methods, often incorporating fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs to beautify and promote relaxation. Although all-natural honey waxing and brow threading are the spa's specialty, skilled aestheticians can also trim the physique with a tummy mask or extract toxins with a seaweed and French clay body wrap. Clients may also solicit a nonsurgical face-lift or papaya enzyme peel to renew the complexion, or request a henna tattoo in the shape of a moustache to fool a local barber.
As an independent contractor at A Unique Boutique & Spa, licensed massage therapist Lora Petchkurow relaxes clients and soothes muscular discomfort with custom massages. Her Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages also incorporate stretches to keep clients in shape for important events, such as annually telling their doctor they've been working out.
The Clinical Skin Care Center Med Spa currently operates under the medical direction of Dr. David Azouz, a board-certified plastic surgeon with more than 25 years of experience performing cosmetic surgery on the face and body. He and their staff perform cosmetic laser procedures that use radio frequency, light energy, and other technologies to target signs of aging on the face or body, as well as acne, acne scarring, and cellulite. The microdermabrasion treatments gently remove the topmost layer of skin to reveal softer skin, while also softening lines and fight acne.
