Melinda Wenzel, an independent contractor working out of Salon Republic, makes every effort to minimize pain while removing clients’ body hair. She uses hard wax rather than harsh strip wax, reducing both discomfort and the chance of fostering ingrown hairs. Wenzel also uses spa-quality Dermalogica products for facials and skincare.

Dr. Deirdre Rhoad spent her childhood learning the skills she would eventually need as one of the Austin area's few female plastic surgeons. Her grandmother taught her to sew, and her piano teacher helped her learn how to hold her hands in a steady position. Although those two had an impact on her dexterous fingers, it was her parents and siblings who instilled in her a deep sense of empathy and inspired her to help women feel less self-conscious.
At Rhoad to Beauty MedSpa, the board-certified plastic surgeon and spa medical director Dr. Deirdre Rhoad and her staff do just that with noninvasive skincare services. Licensed aesthetician Molly Teeple removes spider veins, treats acne, reduces sun damage, and boosts collagen production with photofacials, while micro- and vibradermabrasion treatments slough off dead skin cells. To smooth wrinkles and rejuvenate skin, Dr. Rhoad injects dermal fillers, Botox, and Dysport into facial and neck lines, hollows, and creases.
