Doctor of Chiropractic Uzziah Grigsby and the staff at Bellaire Wellness Chiropractic strive to alleviate pain from injuries and chronic conditions. Thus, their services include adjustments, massages, rehabilitative exercises, and other therapies that make pain disappear faster than an ant that wandered into an exterminators' convention.
In addition to traditional chiropractic care, the clinic provides physicals for school or sports. They also supplement massages with dead-skin-sloughing foot scrubs and calming aromatherapy.
Inside Blue Jade Medi Spa and Skin Care Clinic's bright, airy interior, Dr. Ban A. Vu and chief aesthetician Bich Ngoc Nguyen restore skin to youthful splendor. Specializing in asian skin tones, the spa's advanced equipment can help mend problems on any complexion. Staffers wield lasers that remove hair, tattoos, and unsightly veins, while Botox and Juvéderm injections smooth away facial wrinkles and perk up sagging skin. Eight-step facials cleanse visages as they nourish skin with hydrating creams.
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.
Ashé Laser Med Spa isn’t owner Aisha Khalid’s first stint in the beauty world. The certified laser technician boasts 20 years of experience that includes owning the 15-location Aisha’s Salon & Spa, as well as her own clothing boutique and makeup and skincare line, Ashé Skin Care. Now, as a certified laser-hair-removal professional, she’s opened a laser med spa where she performs laser hair removal, laser skin tightening, and the VI chemical peel. Using an FDA-approved Candela GentleYAG laser, she targets unwanted hair follicles to remove strands without harming surrounding tissue. Khalid tends to other skin issues, including sun damage and aging, by applying a VI peel that clears up acne, shrinks pores, and lifts off any bumper stickers attached to the face.
One of most appealing aspects of Wax Appeal is its devotion to using only hard wax. Applied liberally, hard wax then hardens, cools, and is removed without cloths, making it ideal for those with sensitive skin who are wary of the buckle-up-and-bear it philosophy central to most strip-waxing treatments. Staffers can shed strands from the faces, appendages, and bodies of both women and men, with men’s back waxes inciting an influx of backless business suits.
Waxing doesn't have to be a nerve-wracking, painful experience. And at Serene Wax Boutique, the certified wax technicians make sure it's nothing less than what their name suggests. That's because they set clients at ease the moment they walk through the door, filling their homey confines with elegant touches such as plush couches, modern light fixtures, and framed paintings. During appointments, the staff members quickly and safely remove unwanted hair, expertly performing Brazilian and bikini waxes, waxing unruly brows into flattering arches, or smoothing the full body. They even answer frequently asked questions and give tips on aftercare, such as not tanning for a day due to the sun's tendency to fly into a jealous rage over perfectly smooth skin.
