The technicians at Smiles On The Run keep teeth bright and healthy with safety-conscious whitening techniques. Eschewing bleaches, lasers, and bottles of Wite-Out, staff members instead use a peroxide-based gel and LED lights to achieve noticeable results. During treatment—which typically lasts no longer than 45 minutes per session—they even coat gums and lips in a protective layer of Vitamin E gel to prevent the whitening compound from bleaching the gums.

The beauty pros at HMMC Houston specialize in rejuvenating and slimming treatments that require neither dark magic nor scalpels.

Chemical peels strip complexions clean of dull, dead skin cells and work to minimize the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, and dimples you don't find cute anymore, while micro-roller treatments stimulate healing and cell renewal with hundreds of teeny pokes.
