The staff at Evo Aesthetic Center and Wellness Spa strives to create holistic balance through relaxing and confidence-boosting cosmetic services. Composed of a physician, a registered nurse, and a crew of aestheticians, the team embraces a broad range of services and specialties. They also work to keep clients informed by collaborating with them to select a treatment regimen and a voice actor to narrate its steps in a reassuring baritone.
Their services range from familiar spa treatments—including facials with vitamin- and antioxidant-rich products—to advanced, medically inspired procedures. These can utilize microdermabrasion technology or chemical peels with fruit acids to create younger-looking skin or conceal the appearance of minor scarring.
For most people, glamorous isn't the first word that comes to mind when thinking of army veterans. But most people probably haven't met Jennifer Phinney, an 18-year army vet and Texas Army National Guard member who also boasts 17 years of experience as a professional hairstylist. She's a recent addition to the team at Southern Charm Salon, MedSpa & Boutique, where she can often be overheard chatting up new clients about their lifestyles and personal styles while working with them to craft new looks or just maintain classic ones. She performs both cuts and color, as well as makeup applications, waxing, and nail services.
It's called the million-dollar stretch. After placing both palms on the hip joint, she slides one hand up the back, and the other hand down the leg––a soothing traction that is a favorite among her massage clients. Jasmine Painter has always loved healing, from her first job selling vitamin and essential oils, to today, working as a fully licensed massage therapist. While Sunlight cascades through her studio's peach curtains, client aches surrender to flowing hot stone therapy, Swedish strokes, and deep-tissue pressure.
From within Stone Hill Shopping Center, Great Nails technicians live up to the salon's name by expertly refreshing hands and feet with an array of nail services. With more than 140 years of combined experience, the nail artists at Great Nails are well-versed in decorating fingers and toes with chip-resistant shellac polish, natural-looking Solar Nails French tips, flexible-yet-durable gel nails, and acrylic tips. During pedicures, feet are pampered with an exfoliating sea-salt and moisturizing honey-shea butter lotion that’s more soothing than napping in George Clooney’s laundry hamper, and reflexology sessions focus on relieving pains across the body by applying pressure to specific points along the feet. When not focusing on bettering the nails of adults and kids, Great Nails employs a Zerona body-contouring laser treatment that aims to painlessly reduce fat.
Skin Zen Spa knows the import role skin plays in people's lives. Acting as the body’s barrier, the skin protects from illnesses and environmental factors. Though this germ armor constantly works to keep the bad stuff out, chemical substances can still break in, which is why Skin Zen Spa commits to treating skin with organic, natural, and botanical products. During one of the spa’s body-coddling treatments, surfaces soften with the use of products from Éminence Organic Skin Care, SkinCeuticals, and Skin Zen Spa’s own signature line. Essential and Premier facials remove dirt and oil in the process of washing away lipsticked cheeks from past family reunions. Waxing treatments banish unwanted hair, and soothing massages chase tension and aches away from muscles.
In order to help clients to maintain routine skincare and bodycare, Skin Zen Spa offers facial and massage memberships, which grant members one facial or massage per month, extended service time, and discounted pricing on services provided they remember the secret handshake.
