Analyte Health's staff of certified phlebotomists works to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases by offering affordable screening to patients at more than 30 Houston-area locations. The FDA-approved and CLIE-certified test scans blood and urine samples for eight sexually transmitted diseases, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B and C, herpes I and II, HIV, and syphilis. Within 72 hours, patients receive their confidential test results on a secure website or via e-mail, with the promise that Analyte Health will never share them with a third party. If necessary, fully trained doctors and medical professionals are on hand to discuss treatment options.
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.
Doctor of Osteopathy Scott D. Lauer, an ob/gyn specialist and Texas Tech grad, treats his patients' medical and cosmetic concerns with skill and care. His knowledge of expectant mothers' bodies led him to develop a line of pregnancy skincare products, such as stretch mark cream, muscle relief cream, and dill pickle body spray, all under the brand name Sonabrae.
The massage therapists at Radiant Wellness knead backs and feet and administer an assortment of holistic services to restore balance. Like acupressure without the needles, Jin Shin Jyutsu reduces stress by unlocking 26 exterior energy locks with expert touch and invisible bobby pins ($40 for 30 minutes; $60 for 60 minutes). Similar to Jin Shin Jyutsu, high-touch treatments let blunt fingers do the work of acupuncture needles, poking points along the body's meridian to re-center and relax without breaking the skin ($40 for 30 minutes; $60 for 60 minutes). Healing hands apply reflexology to pavement-pounding phalanges to rejuvenate tired toes and arches and expel tension from the entire anatomy during a foot massage ($40 for 30 minutes; $60 for 60 minutes), and light or firm kneading during a Swedish massage tends to achy muscles in the back, arms, legs, and retractable back-up legs. All sessions take place in private rooms inside a setting decorated with wood furnishings and potted plants, feeling more like home than a spa.
Artemis instills youthfulness with an unlikely blend of artistry and science. Under the same roof, a team of board-certified physicians works alongside aestheticians trained in Chicago, Miami, and LA to rejuvenate patients from the inside and out. Milking convenient medical connections, the spa staff makes use of prescription-strength elixirs to smooth and clarify skin. The doctors flaunt their technical skill with vein-removing injections and lasers, non- and minimally-invasive liposuction alternatives, Botox injections, and championship tournaments of Operation.
