The 11 savvy stylists at Salon Gity style, strengthen, and straighten locks with Paul Mitchell and Coppola products. Tress technicians spend about 45 minutes on each haircut, snipping head nests to client specifications and yielding styles more flattering than written compliments from Oprah. During keratin blowouts, high-end Coppola products seal strands with a protein-rich complex that protects follicle foundations from pollution and reduces frizz. Stylists spend two to three hours administering each root-bolstering treatment, after which hair hangs straighter, resists breaking, and deflects malignant lasers fired from outer space. Salon Gity cultivates an online gallery of its best styling work, which earned the store the title of Best Houston Beauty Store in 2005 on Citysearch.
The facials at Facelogic Spa aim to make people feel like they're floating. Not just because of the soothing products used or the aestheticians' massage techniques, but because every client sits in a cloud-like zero-gravity recliner during their service. Unlike a traditional massage table, these chairs elevate legs to take stress off the spine and make the body feel as if it's hovering like a slice of cucumber on an air-hockey table.
While clients are suspended in this stress-free state, aestheticians tend to professional-strength skincare with a roster of masks, peels, and serums. Advanced options include chemical peels to brighten, resurface, and exfoliate faces.
The MVP haircut is reserved for guys who want the brawn of a chiseled cut with the extreme adrenaline rush of a pleasant pampering. Following careful instructions or expert intuition, stylists can clean up the edges without sacrificing any degree of edginess. A thorough shampoo and scalp massage ensures an itch-free walk off, while a neck and shoulder massage with steamed towel leaves cleaned-up batters with the zonal focus to connect on any upcoming office pitch.
Dr. Faiz Anwar helms a professional clinic that nourishes human exteriors with several beautifying spa services. The non-invasive microdermabrasion facial exfoliates the derma to reveal healthy, younger-looking skin, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines, sun-damaged skin, and mild scarring caused from slapstick raccoon attacks. Clients can opt for a fixed quantity of Botox, a prescription medicine that gets injected directly into muscles to obstruct the nerve impulses that generate fine lines. This simple, non-surgical treatment helps to temporarily improve signs of aging, including crow's-feet, glabellar lines, and forehead wrinkles on the faces of people ages 18–65.
The certificates that line the walls of Sugar Land Plastic Surgery’s consultation room do more than simply confirm Dr. John T. Nguyen's credentials. These frames also provide a small glimpse into the major accomplishments he has achieved since relocating from Saigon to the United States as a child. From attending the University of Texas Medical School to earning board certification to founding Sugar Land Plastic Surgery, Dr. Nguyen has continually built upon his expertise while adding to his educational office decor.
Within the practice’s modern treatment rooms, Dr. Nguyen and his staff work diligently to enhance clients’ natural beauty with surgical and medspa services. All appointments begin with an in-depth consultation and exam to chart the patient’s medical history, current health, and beauty concerns before a technician creates an individualized treatment plan. The office’s Visia skin-analysis system allows for further personalization, providing digital images of the face that reveal concerns such as sun damage and hyperpigmentation. The office also tends to aesthetic needs with cosmetic surgery, dermal fillers, and laser hair and tattoo removal.
Developed in Austria by sports physiologist Dr. Norbert Egger, HYPOXI technology merges moderate aerobic exercise with innovative medical technology. Futuristic-looking capsules surround the cardio machines, providing light vacuum suction and massage compression to augment the flab-busting process. HYPOXI Studio Ballantyne lines its sunlit studio spaces with HYPOXI's contoured capsules, each designed to address stubborn areas of the body. Though the HYPOXI Trainer S120 and L250 both aim to tone thighs, buttocks, hips, and lower abdomens, the L250 is a lower-intensity option ideal for those with high blood pressure or joint problems. The HYPOXI Vacunaut targets cores as joggers don a pressure suit and set their soles atop a treadmill. Requiring no activity, the HYPOXIDermology consists of a specialized suit with 400 pressure chambers that help diminish cellulite and signs of aging. Each body-shaping session lasts about 30 minutes and is ideal for all ages, fitness levels, and time-traveling schedules.
