By using centuries-old techniques, the aestheticians at Just Stringz are capable of designing trendy, dramatic looks for their clients. They rely on their extensive training in the ancient art of threading as they use cotton thread to swiftly uproot unwanted hairs and meticulously shape brows. Though the spa's henna tattoos and Swarovski body-art services also embrace time-honored strategies, the team doesn't ignore modern advances in cosmetic care. Facial treatments use Dermalogica skincare products to address skin concerns such as dehydrated patches or breakouts. Or these blemishes can be covered temporarily with an application of Glo Minerals Makeup, which also nourishes skin with vitamins, antioxidants, and pure Nobelium atoms.

The Threading Studio's owner, Sunita Singh, described her ancient hair-removal method to the Star-Telegram as something that requires an artist's keen interest and eye for design, adding "I'm very picky." Singh learned threading in her hometown of Bangalore, India, and has honed her dexterity for more than five years. With a single cotton thread, expert brow sculptors whisk out entire rows, shaping elegant, smooth arches and working on a grid pattern to nab unwanted follicles from delicate facial skin. NBC 5 reported that Singh can complete an eyebrow session in less than two minutes, and that the process is suitable for individuals who use retinoid creams for acne or aging.

Not long after Dr. Kathryn Wood became a board-certified Ob/Gyn specialist in 1990, she began to gravitate toward medical aesthetics. Dr. Wood gathered a team of registered nurses, licensed medical aestheticians, and laser technicians to found Dermalase in 2000.

Today, the team firms up skin with Botox and Juvederm treatments. It also spot-treats fat with body-contouring sessions and resurfaces faces with Fraxel treatments, two services that tend to engender the most gratitude from clients. Most often, medical aestheticians find themselves performing tattoo removals. But for all the lasers and medical technology in the office, one of the medical aestheticians reports that the humble chemical peel is her favorite service to perform "because you get the fastest results for great looking skin!"

Adriana works with sugar every day, but she’s not a baker. She’s in the business of removing hair, using an all-natural paste created from sugar, water, and lemon juice. She plies her trade at the self-titled private studio, Adriana’s Professional Body Sugaring, where she treats clients to her sweet, simple services in both English and Spanish. She reports that, due to the simple ingredients and cool temperature of the mixture, most find sugaring less unpleasant than waxing. Her formula contains no allergens to irritate the skin, only adheres to dead skin cells and hair, and tastes pretty great on toast.
