Kimberly, owner of The Wax Lab, professes that attaining expert status as a waxer requires not just deft hands, but also a nimble mind. Whether removing hair from the face or delivering a full Brazilian wax to male or female clients, she puts her customers at ease with a constant flow of conversation. She explains each step of her process, and keeps them mentally engaged so that they hardly notice how quickly the treatment goes by. Consequently, she says, "Every appointment is just like catching up with friends."
A photofacial at Body Envy employs advanced Intense Pulse Light technology to offer a quick and non-surgical treatment that mitigates sun damage to overexposed faces. The treatment can even out unbalanced skin tone and discolorations, erase age spots and sun spots, and treat redness, freckles, and spider veins. The IPL technology contains a cooling system that helps to prevent inflammation and overheating during the mostly painless process. Call ahead to schedule your appointment, and please read the pre- and post-appointment instructions.
At Just Wax It, the technological advances of a med spa marry the rejuvenating and beautifying traditions of a classic spa. Founded by master waxer Mendy Moses, the relaxation haven has hung its smooth, bristle-free hat on its waxing specialties, rendering flawless bodyscapes with a pain-reducing grade of brazilian blue wax. In a short time, such services have earned the spa accolades, including being named "Best of the Best" in Houston by Allure Magazine in 2012 and 2013, Houston Best by InStyle Magazine in 2010, and nabbing a finalist slot in Citysearch’s 2010 Best Bikini Wax poll. Yet beyond rendering smooth skin, the spa has a broad spectrum of treatments, pampering guests with mani-pedis, body wraps, and facials that nourish complexions with vitamin-rich serums and masks customized to treat each face's distinct issues and resemble its favorite superhero. Aestheticians also use the precise power of lasers for anti-aging services or vein removal.
The laser technicians at Novopelle rid physiques of unwanted hair using Candela GentleLase or GentleYAG lasers, which have been proven safe for all skin types. To further their commitment to skin, they also revitalize faces with facials, peels, and rejuvenation treatments. In addition, they administer lipotropic and hormone injections as well as capsules and topical lotions to aid in weight loss.
S-shaped hardwood beams sprout from the salon’s dark-wood floor curving upward and separating workstations fitted with black chairs and frameless mirrors. In this environment, husband and wife team Dheea Al and Brooke Menconi sculpt and color hair. As master stylists, they keep themselves knee-deep in continued education and execute services with professional products. While they detangle frizzy 'dos with Moroccanoil or color hair with Alfarparf Milano, aestheticians apply wax to chins to defuzz faces. Their team of cosmetologists brushes on rouge to contour cheekbones and can apply concealer to cover up third eyes.
Winkin' Twinkies boasts a bevy of aestheticians prepared to strip strands as gently as possible from the skin of local ladies and gents. Enjoy a Brazilian wax, available for either men (an $85 value) or women (a $75 value). Before the signature treatment, you’ll be given a complimentary dose of beer or wine (for customers 21 years of age or older) to help quell nerves and ease you out of your undergarments. The friendly waxer will then cover your unmentionables with No Scream Cream, a potent potion that numbs the area to minimize pain. The procedure will exterminate unwanted strands from your most sensitive area, leaving you with fast and long-lasting results. Make sure to grow your hairs for about two weeks before your appointment, and call ahead to schedule your service.
