Earth tones, wood fixtures, and vintage furniture. Shear Impressions is more like a quaint home than a typical salon and spa. That's due to the aesthetic decisions of Veronica Vallejo, who opened the doors to the cozy getaway in 1999. A licensed cosmetologist, her 27 years of experience in skincare allow her to understand what clients want out of a visit: pampering, personal attention, and up-to-date fashion expertise. She leads her team of stylists and aestheticians by regularly attending workshops, which keep her abreast of current styles, techniques, and products. Sharing her knowledge, she and her team style hair using products such as Kenra and Paul Mitchell and keep skin youthful and radiant by employing facials and peels. They also enhance natural beauty with waxing, makeup application, and mani-pedis.
The staff at Vitalogy Skincare tends to skin's health and appearance across eight dermatology locations. Medical-dermatology services cover conditions such as acne, rosacea, and hair loss; cosmetic dermatology focuses on looks with Botox and Juvéderm injections, as well as laser removal of spider veins and hair. Lasers also resurface skin or guide complexions through photorejuvenation, which diminishes the appearance of sun damage to restore younger, more vibrant looking skin. Vitalogy also tackles skin cancer with Mohs surgery—in which founding doctor Eric Adelman, DO, is a fellowship-trained physician—a precise method that quashes the cancer by carefully removing tissue layer by layer.
Gloria Bowen was a nurse for more than 20 years before she decided to repurpose her passion for helping others by applying it to the realm of beauty. As owner of Body Beautiful Spa, she aims to increase clients’ confidence from the outside in. She and her team wield cutting-edge technologies for services such as teeth whitening, red-light therapy, and nonsurgical face-lifts, as well as promote pulchritude with traditional spa services, including massages and facials just for the earlobes.
At Dermatology Laser Center, Dr. Ana L. Rodriguez and her capable staff stay up-to-date on the latest technology and techniques to provide a variety of cosmetic and medical procedures. Each microdermabrasion treatment utilizes a Diamond Tome wand, made with actual diamond chips, to scrape and vacuum away outermost layers of skin, leaving behind less of the gritty, sandy debris caused by many microdermabrasion procedures and all sandbox-filled dinner jackets. Visages can emerge from the procedure with more evenly toned skin and fewer sunspots and blemishes.
Wimberley Media-Spa combines medical techniques with soothing spa treatments to rejuvenate hominids in a clean, upscale setting. During the 60-minute treatment, entrust your meat suit to a makeup-wand-wielding staff member, who will assess the dermal surface to hatch a beautifying plan that best corrects the skin's flaws and evokes the client’s natural allure. Wimberley's wunderkinds will then fuse therapeutic products and mineral makeup from gloMinerals to brighten the face’s appearance until it glimmers like the surface of a lake at twilight, but without skinny-dipping lovebirds constantly frolicking in it. Throughout the makeover, the specialist will also impart techniques to patrons on how to replicate the makeover process at home.
At Bastrop Total Skin Care, board-certified practitioner Dr. Rejeev Gupta and his team of trained professionals treat weather-beaten skin with advanced restorative techniques. Spark a renaissance of healthier, younger-looking skin on your front side with the full-face photofacial session, a noninvasive alternative to traditional cosmetic refurbishment. The Syneron skin-rejuvenation system gently administers light energies across the face to precisely target fleshy flaws, including rosacea, spider veins, age spots, and slap marks from a jealous sun who found out about that romantic evening spent with the moon. With minimal downtime after the procedure, clients can likely return to work the very same day. In order to successfully pamper prepossessing pores, faces typically require five treatments (treatment numbers may vary depending on individual skin type and the severity of skin damage).
