Neither needles nor knives can be found at Body Contour Spa, where noninvasive laser liposuction transforms wobbly bits into trim and svelte physiques. Ultrasonic waves from the spa’s LipoLaser system permeate the area of the client’s choice—including the tummy, thighs, back, or buttocks—and gradually dissolve fat cells, allowing their contents to move through the body until naturally absorbed. Within three to four sessions, clients may begin to see noticeable whittling of their waists or shrinking of their third arms. Aside from noninvasive liposuction, Body Contour Spa aids in general bodily detox with prepackaged body wraps, which whisk away internal toxins from the body in as little as 45 minutes.

At Beauty & Beyond Skin Care Center, clients don't need to resort to surgery for a younger look. That's because the professional staff slows the aging process through a spread of non-invasive procedures. The non-surgical facial employs microcurrent technology to zap wrinkles and fine lines, and the microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals to slough away dead skin cells, revealing smooth skin that may cause clients to be mistaken for majestic dolphins. Other services, such as threading and henna tattoos, keep clients looking their best, helping the beautifying hotspot to win awards from Talk of the Town Texas for Excellence in Customer Satisfaction and the U.S. Commerce Association for Facial Skin Care and Treatments.
The namesake Angelica of Wax Spot by Angelica has been stripping Houstonians of unwanted hair for over six years. Eyebrows, Brazilians, man-zilians and everything in between – it’s all been done before, and with care, by Angelica and her careful team, inside their small space. Located in a reformed house on Heights Boulevard, Angelica and her estheticians and cosmetologists strip skin bare using Brazilian blue paraffin-based wax, and offer a variety of facial treatments and chemical peels to boot. TVs in the rooms show nothing but sitcoms to keep guests laughing through the process, as any and every body part gets stripped bare and smooth. While not the place for modesty, Wax Spot is certainly one of the area’s best options for cleaning up before a night out.
