Medical director Dr. David Grant hung up his scalpel after nearly 39 years as a plastic surgeon and now devotes his attention to noninvasive techniques of skin conditioning and repair that allow him to take what he feels is a more comprehensive approach to anti-aging. He and his team at Laser Sculpting Center blast away unwanted fat and body hair with an arsenal of lasers and shoo away wrinkles and signs of aging with chemical peels and microdermabrasion. Massages and bodywork techniques leave muscles relaxed and minds destressed, and raindrop therapy soothes the spine with essential oils and heat from hot towels or tiny lightning bolts.
Balance. It's the main goal of most of the treatments at Texas Ayurvedic, yet that approach doesn't only take into account a client's current condition. It's also about helping people make long-term lifestyle changes that enhance their total-body health. Those are some of the central tenets at work in the center's approaches, which include everything from bodywork treatments to dietary counseling in the pursuit of mind, body, and spiritual balance.
Approaching each client with personalized care, the center offers a wide array of services intended to address an even wider array of needs. Some include massages, detoxifying body treatments, and pain-alleviating therapies that help release stress, sending it to the same place lost left socks go. Then there's dietary guidance, which aims to strengthen bodies with regimens aimed at preventing disease. Even traditional facial treatments—which use natural, botanically derived skincare products—strive to alleviate stress while leaving skin looking smooth and radiant.

People go to spas to forget about the outside world. How does your decor help create an atmosphere where visitors can unwind?
Each massage takes place inside a private studio with soft lighting and relaxing music.
Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?*
Yes. No matter what happens in your life, or what surrounds you, joy and beauty flows within you.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
Being hard on themselves and not taking time out of their lives to relax and let their minds recuperate.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
It all starts with making that first step.
In the same way a gardener cultivates the ground for vegetables, the therapists at The Garden Experience Wellness Spa cultivate the body for relaxation. And like gardeners, they use an assortment of tools along with their bare hands. Hot stones, eucalyptus essential oil, acai berry and exfoliating shea butter scrubs work to evaporate tension during customized massage sessions.
Each of Tangerine Salons' four locations operate under a charitable ethos and the nature-based tenants of Aveda. Aveda's environmentally conscious, naturally derived products infuse all of Tangerine's salon services. Seven tiers of hairstylists—ranging from Protégé I to Master III—handle the hairstyling duties by snipping, highlighting, and conditioning locks. At the Coppell and Cedar Hill locations, the staff dedicates space to an array of spa services, including massages, facial treatments, mani-pedis, and back facials that help eliminate crow's feet on people with eyes in the back of their heads.
As the owner of Pretty Hair Design since 2001, Yasmeen ensures that her salon offers familiar day spa indulgences as well as a handful of more intriguing cosmetic procedures. The staff of skincare professionals specializes in using hair threading techniques to fashion shapely and stylish eyebrows, and they beautify clients' skin by applying henna tattoos—intricate, eye-catching designs that are temporary, unlike a full sleeve of Margaret Thatcher's head on a snake body. At the same time, visitors also have the opportunity to pamper themselves by scheduling a skin-firming facial, getting a trendy haircut, or shedding pent-up stress with the help of an aromatherapy massage.
