Massages with hot-towel treatments, facials with hand and arm massages and tranquility rituals, and haircuts with masks—it's clear that Skye Salon & Boutique's pampering experts love doing that little something extra to make their services stand out. Even the business itself stands out. It's a salon-and-boutique hybrid that encourages guests to snap up handbags, clothing, and the handmade wares of local artists.
Dentist B.J. Myers and his troop of teeth technicians team up to safely, quickly, and effectively brighten ivories inside a cozy office stuffed with the comforts of home. Luminescence replaces tarnish during each Zoom! whitening treatment, wherein a heedful hygienist blankets mawbones in a specially formulated gel that morphs into a stain-slaying vigilante beneath the glow of an ingredient-activating lamp. Clients can kick back as the formula works its magic, boosting brightness an average of eight shades in the course of approximately 45 minutes. While individual results may vary, the whitening can last for more than a year with proper upkeep and sticky-bun sacrifices to the Tooth Fairy.

Doctor of Chiropractic Trevor Botts was well on his way to becoming a psychologist before he met his wife who suffered from migraines. Compelled to find the source of her migraines, he began studying chiropractic. He trained in techniques designed to help the body overcome maladies from chronic pain to digestive issues—all without the aid of medication. Today, he practices these same noninvasive treatments, such as spinal adjustments and massages, that helped heal his wife's migraines.
At Bella Body Design, slimming down clients' silhouettes takes teamwork. The clinic specializes in body-contouring treatments that combine radio, monopolar, bipolar, and tripolar frequency waves—a six-stage sytem that reduces fat and cellulite while contouring to the shape of the body more efficiently than either method alone, and is the only Austin-area clinic to use this system. As the radio-frequency waves heat the fat cells beneath the skin, ultrasonic waves rupture and break them up, followed by the vacuum to push the breakage into the lymphatic system. From there the body metabolizes the cells naturally, which leaves skin smoother on areas such as the stomach, thighs, and arms. The treatment also works on the face and chin, where it fades wrinkles and lifts sagging skin without clients having to resort to strips of duct tape attached to helium balloons. Each session is gentle, noninvasive, and, unlike surgeries with similar effects, requires no downtime.
At Simply Slimming, technicians helps shape, tighten, and detoxify the body through quick and modern techniques. Body wraps use the power of compression and chemical to shave inches off the hips, stomach, and legs, with specialty wraps designed to increase energy and firm up wrinkles. Guests can also purge toxins with a leisurely soak in an ionic detox footbath, or bid adieu to crow's feet with yogurt tightening face masks.
