Beauty and health take center stage at The Aria Nail Spa & Salon, a Paul Mitchell focus salon. Single-use tools and foot baths with disposable liners protect hands and feet during refreshing mani-pedis, before nail artists beautify fingers and toes with Swarovski crystals or high-quality polishes by OPI and CND. While stylists create a whirl of classic and modern do?s, aestheticians reach for Dermalogica products to help them clear out clogged pores and smooth fine lines during facials. Of course, smooth skin is also revered below the neck, and so the team can also wax away unwanted hair on legs, underarms, and bikini areas.
Sister duo Michelle and Marie draw on Swedish, deep tissue, and pressure point principles and techniques to tailor each treatment to your body's singular quirks and complaints. During the integrated massage, the mitten fillers of your licensed massage therapist will skate smooth circles and figure eights on the surface of your back, boosting circulation, oxygenating muscles, and promoting peacefulness. If your body is already nice and rubbery from hours of boiling in a spaghetti pot, you can de-stress just as completely with a mani/pedi as technicians clip, cut, and file untamed talons into clean and orderly perfection before coating them with your color of choice. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.

One of Mexico's most well-respected skincare centers, MAVYPALACIO "Skin care Center" has been a staple of self-care south of the border for more than 30 years. Now they're branching out. From new locations in Edinburg and McAllen, the beauty experts deliver treatments including microdermabrasion, acne-erasing sessions, Botox, and dermal fillers. The med-spa also provides weight-loss solutions such as nutritional counseling, mesotherapy, and ultrasound cavitation.
Cosmetic care that stops at the surface is only fighting half the battle. This is the philosophy of the staff at Eternal Wellness MedSpa & Salon, and its various aestheticians and technicians aim to rejuvenate and revitalize clients' spirits with their beauty services. To do so, they incorporate traditional spa techniques, such as Swedish and deep-tissue massage, with medical-grade products and technology. A cosmetic laser system and Vibraderm exfoliating machine fit right in with the center's arsenal of aesthetic equipment, which also includes infrared light skin-tightening devices. Colon hydrotherapy machines and 21-day cleanses help clients shed weight and toxins. Even something as straightforward as a new hairstyle or freshly polished set of nails can revitalize spirits and give clients the confidence they need to finally assemble their home's particle accelerator.
