Clearstone Spa was founded to assist clients seeking a way to improve their appearance by permanently reducing or eliminating unwanted hair. While the spa has won the 2013 Best Laser Hair Removal Provider award from H-Texas Magazine they have also expanded services to include beautifying treatments such as chemical peels, IPL photofacials, HydraFacials, and microdermabrasion. The team harnesses an arsenal of Nd:YAG, KTP, and Alexandrite lasers, which they use to treat unwanted hair, tattoos, or signs of aging such as sun spots and molting.
Creature comforts are half the fun at The Retreat Nails & Spa. Before services, guests can sip complimentary beverages and relax in a massage chair. Then, the relaxation begins. The spa's staff of nail techs pamper hands and feet with Shellac manicures and pedicures, and skincare experts do their part with refreshing facials. The Retreat also offers reflexology, which targets stress and imbalances in the body through the massaging of the feet, and waxes, which shape eyebrows and remove unwanted milk mustaches.
At Namaste Laser and Medspa, certified laser technicians Cristina M. Alvarez and Nicole Alvarez-Rincon can harness the power of condensed light to remove unwanted hair from nearly any area of the body. The staff also specializes in spider-vein removal and skin tightening, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Clients at Stylingbar can relax during styling sessions, and not just because they’re sipping flutes of champagne. They can relax because they’re going to walk out with a fabulous blowout that will last for days, thus freeing up their time to do more important things, such as teaching the dog to sing.
The stylists at the salon wash hair and infuse strands with essential oils imported from France for an additional fee. They then create pin-straight locks, sassy curls, braids, and updos.
"Technique is everything," says Tricia Hetherington, licensed esthetician and owner of The Pretty Kitty, a chain of full-service waxing boutiques specializing in bare-all Brazilians. Tricia, who?s been profiled in Luxury Las Vegas and several additional press outlets, personally trains each staff member in her proprietary 10- to 15-minute hair-removal method, which employs high-quality soft wax that?s formulated for delicate flesh and minimizes pain. Her estheticians never double dip into the wax pot, reaching for a fresh stick with every application of the warm substance. The Pretty Kitty's menu of services also includes facial and full-body waxing, and though walk-ins are welcome, appointments are recommended.
Zebra-print chairs offset classic Doric columns topped with lights at Village La Salon, adding a fun element of funk to an upscale salon atmosphere. Inside, professional stylists shape hair into customized styles with a variety of services for men and women, which range from haircuts and highlights to permanent relaxers and conditioning treatments. They also perform a variety of other salon services, including mani-pedis, full-body massages, permanent makeup, and threading and waxing.
