Live Well Urgent Care offers a three-pronged approach to good health. The first category is Get Well, which means treating illnesses and minor emergencies, refilling prescriptions, and offering X-ray services to scope out broken bones. Their Feel Well services include preventative care, cosmetic procedures, and laser tattoo removal. And the Live Well program keeps clients up-to-date on health events such as fitness regimens and nutritional workshops.
Spend some quality time not talking to your sweetie with the Be My Valentine special, which includes a couple's massage, bottle of wine, and complimentary rose ($199) in Beau Visage's handsome and spacious couple's massage room. Facial fans can try out a Fountain of Youth hydrating facial ($125) or an Under the Sea Facial ($125) with seaweed, cultivated from France's Bethany Coast, that contains 1,000 times more vitamins and minerals than anything grown in soil. Those looking to infiltrate high school to write the exposé that will seal their journalistic futures can peel away layers of dead face skin with a glycolic peel ($50) or a medical-grade peel ($120–$160). If you're more in the mood for a massage, a 90-minute European hot-stone therapy session ($120) will increase your relaxation and improve your blood flow with the penetrating heat of smooth basalt rocks. You can also cocoon yourself with a Slender Quest Body Wrap ($95) and emerge a firm, toned, sexy butterfly. Dudes, meanwhile, can enjoy being King for a Day (one of the Valentine's Day specials) with a gentlemen's facial and a sandalwood aromatherapy massage ($129). Beau Visage also offers airbrush tanning, microdermabrasion, men's body services, photorejuvenation, and more.
Due to her own struggles with excessive hair growth, Alina Stephanie had gone through it all: waxing, depilatories, trying to mask embarrassing hair with extra makeup. Finally, she discovered laser hair removal and never looked back. She became a hair removal specialist in 1985, established her clinic in 1989, and has been helping people seeking a more effective and clinical means to overcoming their issues ever since.
At Alina Stephanie Day Spa, the trained clinicians help these clients and more. Aside from laser hair removal services, they also offer electrolysis, microdermabrasion, and European facials, which use exfoliations, steam, and customized treatment masks to leave complexions radiant. Clients can also prepare for a big day by releasing stress caused by wedding planning or searching for hidden Christmas presents with calming massage therapy.
The licensed aesthetician and owner of The Xtreme Beauty fills her beauty haven with products from her own Get W8isted line and fills her staff’s ranks with certified technicians who specialize in waxing, airbrush makeup, and more. These qualified staffers both augment features—framing eyes with eyelash extensions and enriching skin with facials—and subtract from them, waxing away hair from bodily expanses and slimming frames with body wraps. Subscribing to Einstein's theory of the more the merrier, the team also stages beauty-treatment parties at customers’ homes or offices.
What started as a beauty shop operating out of Aisha Khalid's home has now, 20 years later, blossomed into 10 full-service, women-only salons. The aestheticians at Aisha's Salon & Spa were some of the first to bring threading to the faces of Houston ladies, whisking away unruly brows, chin fuzz, and emperor-tamarin mustaches with a thin cotton filament. For body depilation, they turn to traditional waxing, and body polishes and facials leave skin rejuvenated and smooth. Stylists trim, straighten, and color tresses, and makeup artists apply finishing touches with traditional or airbrush products.
Aaina means mirror in Hindi. It's an appropriate moniker for Aaina Salon & Aaina Brow Bar, since its aestheticians adjust each service to reflect the client's own, inimitable look. Before threading services, they analyze facial shapes with the precision of a robot that never breaks eye contact, helping them determine the most flattering arch shape. This level of personalization permeates Aaina's other services, including signature facials that treat specific skin conditions, body waxing, Brazilian waxing, and eyelash extensions.
