For more than 18 years, Thao Tran has treated clients to nail services, skincare, and massages that address issues from stress and chronic pain to weak nails and congested skin. Seven days a week, Tran and the staff at Nail and Skin Day Spa knead away tension, remove unwanted hair, and make lashes stand out with tinting, perm, and extension services. Using products from OPI and CND, nail technicians keep nails strong, shiny, and meticulously groomed. Dermalogica products cleanse skin of all types without artificial colors or fragrance. Permanent-makeup services enhance features without constant makeup reapplication through long days, water activities, and sudden liquid-eyeliner storms.
Alite Laser Hair Removal & Skin Rejuvenation’s three locations act as upscale sanctuaries where clients can go to lose spider veins and unwanted fat, but their specialty is hair removal. A trio of hair-removal procedures—waxing, laser removal, and electrolysis—fight follicles more effectively than scaring hair away like it’s a case of the hiccups. When they aren’t performing laser hair-removal procedures, technicians harness the power of light to brighten skin during facials.
Austin Body Contouring has one goal: streamline their patients’ silhouettes. To that end, the staff employs a two-pronged approach of laser treatments and dietary supplements. They wield the beams of Zerona and LipoLaser 2000 systems, designed to flatten fat cells and burn calories, respectively. Curva supplements bolster weight-loss efforts with a blend of extracts—including ginkgo biloba and green tea—that help the circulatory and lymphatic systems dispose of excess fat and sort the body's recyclables into their proper bins.
From within Stone Hill Shopping Center, Great Nails technicians live up to the salon's name by expertly refreshing hands and feet with an array of nail services. With more than 140 years of combined experience, the nail artists at Great Nails are well-versed in decorating fingers and toes with chip-resistant shellac polish, natural-looking Solar Nails French tips, flexible-yet-durable gel nails, and acrylic tips. During pedicures, feet are pampered with an exfoliating sea-salt and moisturizing honey-shea butter lotion that’s more soothing than napping in George Clooney’s laundry hamper, and reflexology sessions focus on relieving pains across the body by applying pressure to specific points along the feet. When not focusing on bettering the nails of adults and kids, Great Nails employs a Zerona body-contouring laser treatment that aims to painlessly reduce fat.
Oatmeal has many uses: some people eat it for breakfast, rich horses spread it on crackers, and the list goes on. But the staff at Royal Crown Spa harnesses the cleansing power of the oats for footbaths. Headlining the spa’s soleful healing treatment, the oatmeal footbath is accompanied by a sea-salt scrub, paraffin wrap, and foot massage. This and other soothing body treatments—alongside a spread of massage and facial treatments—constitute the spa’s full menu of relaxation and aesthetic services.
