The beauty pros at HMMC Houston specialize in rejuvenating and slimming treatments that require neither dark magic nor scalpels. They whittle down physiques with radiofrequency, cavitation, and body-contouring lasers, as well as a plethora of body wraps that address cellulite, skin laxity, and entrenched toxins. 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.
The stylists at the locally owned SH Salons cut, style, and revitalize coiffures using high-end haircare products from brands such as Shiva, Silkology, and Clio. They also straighten locks by applying keratin treatments and relaxers, forgoing the now-defunct practice of hammering them over an anvil. Dedicated to bringing out clients’ beauty from head to toe, the experienced staff can also apply makeup or polish nails with dazzling hues.
Hair Gallery's team of stylists aim to give each customer personalized attention. A consultation at the start of each appointment ensures each stylist understands their client's hair needs and favorite pet name used, and comfortably situates each guest with a complimentary glass of coffee, wine, or beer. Chandeliers illuminate all the stylish transformations, which can transcend tress modification to include eyebrow or lip waxes, Shellac manicures, or full sets of acrylic nails.
Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates's founder Dr. Ray McLendon possesses just about the highest pedigree one could seek in an Invisalign provider. He worked as the vice president of Align Technologies, the company that developed Invisalign braces. Today, he's back to working with patients, conducting exams with x-rays and providing advice on what type of braces would best suit each client, whether its traditional metal braces or Invisalign retainers to match invisible teeth.
The mission of Energee Massage is right in the name: to help clients regain their healthy vigor. Under the direction of founder Dr. John Boren, a skilled staff provides both fitness and wellness services in one spacious building. The treatments themselves continue the active theme—15-minute express workouts, for example, rely on whole-body vibration platforms and other specialized equipment designed to efficiently tone muscles. Guests seeking relaxation can opt for a classic massage, recline atop a dry HydroMassage table, or kick back in a RoboMassage chair programmed to feel empathy. An onsite infrared sauna promotes detoxification and works to burn calories, and weight-loss programs provide nutritional guidance. No matter what the treatment, the wellness professionals aim to make Energee Massage a welcoming place to begin or continue on the road to health.
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.
