Anthony Capasso, a board-certified doctor of internal medicine, has channeled his more than 15 years of experience treating weight-related ailments into developing medication-free approaches to weight loss at Thin Centers MD. At each location, clients start their medical weight-loss regimens with an initial consultation that uses various health metrics—including medical history and a blood evaluation—to determine which approach fits them best. Dr. Capasso’s diets come tailored to various lifestyles, ranging from those that work for avid cooks to diets for people with hectic schedules. Each of the programs can also be enhanced with the fat-melting technology of an FDA-approved Zerona laser. Weekly follow-up visits with the medical staff help patients track their weight-loss progress, stamp their diet journal with the words “Private—This Means You, Mom,” and make any necessary changes to their program.
Modeled after traditional Korean spas, King Spa and Sauna houses nine distinct therapy rooms, each of which specializes in treating a different form of ailment or anxiety. The Charcoal room lines its walls with antibacterial briquettes, which can alleviate conditions such as eczema and undercooked pork sausage. The domed sauna in the Fire Sudatorium encircles entrants in the room's dry-heat and oak-tree aromatherapy, whereas the low temperature of the Ice room encourages blood flow to the chilled parts of the body. In the heated Base Rock room, slabs of siraka stone deploy infrared rays into prostrate patrons, inciting increased circulation and lymphatic drainage during a process that, like most mixed-martial-arts careers, typically doesn't last longer than two 15-minute sessions.
Luxury on Lovers’ skillful staff soothes beleaguered bods with alternative healing treatments inside a restored 1930s house. A 30-minute session in the infrared sauna heats the body from the inside out, helping boost circulation and flush out toxins built up during daily life or sewer windsurfing competitions. The treatment is believed to help with symptoms associated with a host of illnesses and disorders, such as arthritis, chronic fatigue, and fibromyalgia. After a cleansing 30-minute shower to cap off their session, clients may leave the spa with a body that's better poised for stress management, losing weight, and winning head-to-head karaoke showdowns.
The licensed massage therapists at Horizon Massage & Spa have noticed something over their more than 18 years in business: an increase in stress among their patients. They do their best to counteract this rising tension with soothing handiwork in styles that range from gently relaxing Swedish massage to prenatal massage to the intense strokes of deep-tissue massage. Not only working out of their Dallas-area locations, staffers occasionally travel to local businesses to perform 15-minute massages on especially rigid office chairs.
While performing her residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, Dr. Ellen Turner built a strong foundation for treating dermatological conditions such as acne, rosacea, psoriasis, and skin cancer. She designed DermLaser Institute of Dallas to treat skin maladies ranging from eczema and melasma to scar treatment. She and her staff tone and brighten complexions with skin treatments as well as medical, cosmetic, and laser procedures. Outside of simple skin-brightening work, DermLaser Institute of Dallas also wields Yag and Fraxel lasers to perform facial rejuvenation, body contouring, hair removal, and tattoo removal. Dr. Turner also works below the surface in her spa, treating faces with injectables and dermal fillers in addition to traditional chemical peels, facials, and microdermabrasion treatments. She also helps clients keep up at-home regimens with Belladermis, her personally curated product shop that includes cleansers by SkinMedica, lotions from Obagi, and a mysterious salve that turns dogs invisible.
Medical aesthetician Diana Luna has developed her touch for topical skincare during the past eight years, teaming up with a physician to expand their ability to treat skin at Spa D'Luna. Luna's focus is healthful, youthful skin, which Diana cultivates with Image Skincare tonics that resurface damaged areas and refine pores. The resident medical director plumps aging skin with cosmetic injections and oversees the use of noninvasive lasers, which stimulate cellular turnover and collagen production in the epidermis to create a smooth surface for playing air hockey. For a spell of relaxation, the day spa helps knead stress out of bodies with massage offerings and hair removal via sugaring.
Serena Medspa's owner Chris Henretta knows that even if people are aging gracefully, they're still aging. So he helms a staff that helps ease the process for those who are fighting wrinkles and age spots. Doctors and nurses inject facial areas with Botox or Dysport. Licensed aestheticians and laser technicians remove hair and veins, tighten skin, and reduce the appearance of blemishes. And they combine three treatments in one with the Triniti skin series, which addresses discoloration, sagging skin, and wrinkles with IPL, ReFirme, and Matrix IR systems.
To ensure you get the right service, Serena Medspa's staff uses Visia Complexion Analysis. This computer-imaging software measures skin evenness, checks for UV spots and invisible noses, and tracks several other facial features, using the results to create complexion profiles that are helpful in designing treatment plans.
