Though high-tech hair removal relies on relatively new technologies, owner Nedra Lockhart has been zapping follicles for more than 40 years—she began in 1970, working at the side of her mother, for whom the clinic is named. Though electrolysis is still on the menu, the entire staff boasts national board certification in laser hair removal through The Society for Clinical and Medical Hair Removal, Inc. This range of treatment options is essential, as specialists must select the right tool for the job: though considered less painful, lasers target melanin and may not be ideal for those with lighter-colored strands, who may be better served by electrolysis or Photoshop. Besides permanent hair removal, the clinic is home to Scandinavian skincare services by stateside transplant Catharina and mani-pedis by aesthetician Lisa Schuenemann.
Using state-of-the-art pore-purging technology, the team at American Laser Centers rejuvenates debilitated dermis, bestowing even the most Skeletor-like complexions with the eternally youthful radiance of Liberace. Sit back and relax as one of the center's gentle skin sorceresses goes to work on your tired visage using ultra-sonic sound-wave technology. The safe, noninvasive vibrating blade quickly and efficiently removes the top layer of skin, blowing the pores clean and leaving clients with a softer, smoother, less Gollumy frontispiece. Ultra-sonic technology can also be an effective means of treating acne, blackheads, and other husk hindrances, and the face-freshening treatment can be administered in as little as 15 minutes.
As the company's mantra states, the staff of Physicians Medi-Spa aim to help clients reverse the various processes that wreak havoc on the skin and body. Under supervision from the doctors that own the spa, aesthetic technicians use an arsenal of elōs lasers and radio-frequency technology to unburden skin of signs of age, unwanted tattoos, and excess hair. Customers can avoid the invasive nature and downtime of plastic surgery with CoolSculpting treatments that target fat deposits, or Ultherapy ultrasound sessions that tighten facial skin loosened from years of playing checkers against high-powered fans.
Doctors Michele and Marc Ibanez head up Ideal You Medspa, a clinic devoted to delivering modern beauty treatments in a welcome and caring environment. They and their team rejuvenate faces and bodies with services such as laser hair removal, laser skin tightening, and beauty injections, as well as traditional facials, chemical peels, and waxing. Those looking to shed a few pounds can take advantage of the med spa?s weight-loss program, which works to promote good nutrition, stabilize blood-sugar levels, and minimize blood frosting levels.
Though Dr. Javier Alonso specializes in vein, cardiovascular, and thoracic issues at Texas Vein and Vascular, he and his staff administer a full spectrum of cosmetic treatments at TVV Medispa that go beyond spider-vein removal. Injectables, peels, and resurfacing lasers keep complexions as smooth and even as a face-shaped shuffleboard. Lasers target both unwanted hair and sagging areas of skin around the face as well as the body, which can be toned or soothed through wraps and massages.
Under the direction of Dr. Ruben J. Almanza, the staff at Imagen Medical Spa overhauls clients' guises with a roster of med-spa treatments. Skin savants perform laser hair-removal treatments to deforest follicular fields and inject Botox and Juv?derm to correct slack skin. The spa's licensed aesthetician rejuvenates visages with peels and facials, and complimentary consultations ensure guests select the correct treatments and complete their tax returns.
