When Lisa Lojas-Waryanka hunted for real estate to transform into her own salon, she wanted more than just a convenient location. She wanted a space that would pluck visitors out of the everyday and cradle them in a world of relaxation, adorned by billowy red curtains framing ample sunlight, potted plants sitting atop Roman columns, and mirrors wrapped in antique-style mouldings. After making her vision a reality, Lojas-Waryanka—whose aesthetic education ranges from advanced study at Pittsburgh Beauty Academy to training in Alexandria Body Sugaring—set forth to build a top-notch team whose collective high standards have since earned the salon Redken certifications in hairstyling, haircare, coloring, men's hair, and the Redken chemistry system. Salon Boutique's services also include waxing, body sugaring, and mani-pedis performed with Qtica Smart Spa products and a choice from more than 200 Zoya polishes free of harsh ingredients such as formaldehyde and smelted brass.
At Beauty & Beyond Skin Care Center, clients don't need to resort to surgery for a younger look. That's because the professional staff slows the aging process through a spread of non-invasive procedures. The non-surgical facial employs microcurrent technology to zap wrinkles and fine lines, and the microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals to slough away dead skin cells, revealing smooth skin that may cause clients to be mistaken for majestic dolphins. Other services, such as threading and henna tattoos, keep clients looking their best, helping the beautifying hotspot to win awards from Talk of the Town Texas for Excellence in Customer Satisfaction and the U.S. Commerce Association for Facial Skin Care and Treatments.
What began as a traveling-spa-party business in 2010 has since grown into a brick-and-mortar studio where three licensed massage therapists ply their trade. In addition to classic massage treatments?such as relaxation, deep-tissue, and hot-stone therapy?the crew has branched out into other services that require greater expertise. During reiki treatments the staff addresses the body's energy flow, and both pediatric and infant massages meet the needs of all American Girl dolls. Super Spa Girl owner Jenny Keffer is also a fertility-massage specialist, which enables her to help women achieve their dream of becoming mothers through a combination of deep abdominal massage, pelvic rocking, reflexology, and aromatherapy.
Dr. Cole and his staff at Cole Health Institute understand the difficulty of ridding the body of stubborn inches. They've helped more than 1,000 patients slim down, reducing excess belly fat, whittling away love handles, and shrinking forearms bulged by years of spinach eating. Both of the office's two laser systems, the Zerona device and the Lapex BCS laser, target fat cells to disrupt their membranes and cause them to shrink, which results in lost inches and a reduction in the appearance of cellulite.
Located within a stately, 1870s structure, La Spa Ligonier beautifies clients with a full array of spa services performed by a qualified staff. A 75-minute custom European spa facial pampers visages with a thorough cleansing that employs botanical Vagheggi products specially chosen for each customer's skin type, needs, and ability to refract light. After a mild cleansing unveils the dermal canvas, staff members coax out impurities with a dynamic duo of exfoliation and deep pore cleansing, then they tone skin with a pH-balancing treatment. A gentle facial massage soothes muscular tension caused from holding a poker face at a yawning convention, and a custom mask refreshes visages. Guests venture even deeper into a state of relaxation with the help of aromatherapy and a heated, therapeutic massage for the hands and feet. Lastly, a waxing touchup tidies eyebrows without diminishing their ocular umbrella capabilities.
Licensed aesthetician Nikki Heller rejuvenates mugs within the tranquil comforts of Permanent Waves. Schedule an appointment directly through the salon, and your facial terrain will be treated to a full-tilt blast of mechanical exfoliation that bucks loose cells faster than a rodeo bull. The noninvasive treatment can blissfully blast traces of acne while reversing damage caused by sun, wind, and standing in front of a sneezing dragon. Heller also aims to polish away eye, lip, and neck wrinkles; and to reduce the appearance of scars, age spots, broken capillaries, and hyperpigmentation.
