Gorgeous Smiles facilitates the glimmering grins of its clients with in-office and at-home teeth-whitening tactics. Inside private treatment rooms, technicians first match teeth to their current hue on a color chart, then carefully coat them in a combination of carbamide peroxide and potassium nitrate to whiten smiles while thwarting increased tooth sensitivity. The savvy techs are so confident in their handiwork that, should teeth not brighten by at least two shades on the color chart at the end of the treatment, coffee-stained mouths will receive a full refund. The salon, an offshoot of Gorgeous Nail Lounge & Demi-Spa, also sends clients packing with take-home whitening products from Star Bright, BleachBright, and NightBright that work in a matter of days from the comfort of one’s home or converted missile silo.
Diana Guerra, the owner and practicing aesthetician at Skinnovation, believes that corrective services should be as comfortable as they are aesthetically rewarding. So it?s a good thing that she performs every service herself. That way, treatments such as the Double Infusion Lightening Facial not only renew the skin with advanced Rhonda Allison Skincare products but soothe the client that lives behind the googly eyes. Ultimate comfort even plays a role in waxing, as Diana uses Cirepil depilatory products to minimize irritation.
The laser technicians and medical aestheticians at Skinologie Medical Spa value the role that technology plays in providing noninvasive alternatives to serious skincare concerns. Instead of relying on surgery, since the Spa's founding in 2008, they have been using an array of cutting-edge products and devices that generate dramatic cosmetic results. Skinologie recently opened its second location in Cedar Park under the ownership of Skinologie founder and nurse practitioner, Francis Mijares. MIjares prides himself in leading a team of medically-trained and certified staff. In addition to exfoliating skin with diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands, technicians use intense pulses of light to minimize the appearance of blemishes such as wrinkles, oversize pores, and reminders you jotted on your hand to pick up the dry cleaning. The staff also bolsters collagen production with radio-frequency technology and eradicates unwanted stubble with laser energy. But even with all these cosmetic services available, they still embrace their training as medical professionals by diagnosing serious skin conditions and removing troublesome moles.
By combining a specialty clothing store with a spa, Glamour Chics Boutique & Med Spa enables guests to shop and pamper themselves, all in one trip. On the spa side, beauty pros wield lasers that remove unwanted hair on areas across both men and women, from overgrown eyebrows to burly backs. Other specialty lasers work to combat acne and soften wrinkles on faces. For a quick sweat-session, the infrared body-slimming wrap works to detoxify bodies and increase metabolism, burning up to 1,200 calories in a single 60-minute stretch. Meanwhile in the boutique, sparkly dresses and animal-print shirts preen on hangers, while display stands hold bangles, earrings, and necklaces.
At Mesmer Eyez Me Lashes, Kimberly uses her Xtreme Lashes certification to beautify clients’ eyes with Xtreme Lashes products exclusively. After individual consultations and styling sessions, she adheres synthetic and mink extensions to the existing lashes, upping the wow factor of eyes with increased volume and length.
I'Muniq Styles Salon & Spa’s menu of services includes revitalizing treatments for the hair, skin, and nails. The salon's team of stylists snip away with deft cuts for men, women, and children, as well as coloring and highlights that can bring any hairdo or Expressionist painting to life. Elsewhere in the spa, technicians render skin smooth and hairless with Brazilian waxing, and manicurists spruce up the digits with gel and Shellac nails.
