The beauty technicians at Hello Gorgeous groom guests with a comprehensive roster of spa and salon services. Stylists renovate manes with haircuts and coloring, and aestheticians tackle epidermal ailments with tanning, body wraps, and facials that enlist aloe-based formulas that exfoliate and pack in more moisture than a hoarding rain cloud. A resident massage therapist kneads away stress alongside aestheticians who can diminish cellulite and wrinkles. To fully pamper clients, Hello Gorgeous bundles its plentiful services into thoughtful makeover packages that outline fashion and makeup advice and prep patrons for special events, such as proms, weddings, or bouts of competitive wedding-cake demolishing.
Anthony Capasso, a board-certified doctor of internal medicine, has channeled his more than 15 years of experience treating weight-related ailments into developing medication-free approaches to weight loss at Thin Centers MD. At each location, clients start their medical weight-loss regimens with an initial consultation that uses various health metrics—including medical history and a blood evaluation—to determine which approach fits them best. Dr. Capasso’s diets come tailored to various lifestyles, ranging from those that work for avid cooks to diets for people with hectic schedules. Each of the programs can also be enhanced with the fat-melting technology of an FDA-approved Zerona laser. Weekly follow-up visits with the medical staff help patients track their weight-loss progress, stamp their diet journal with the words “Private—This Means You, Mom,” and make any necessary changes to their program.
Koffee Day Spa's cozy boutique setting and luxurious services ensure an intimate couples retreat or rapport-building pamper party. Shear superfluous curves and dimpled skin with the 60-minute Green Koffee cellulite wrap (a $100 value), which swathes frames in a snug cocoon designed to soothe, slim, and boost the skin's natural defenses against martial arts. Then facial artisans apply the Non-Fat mini facial (a $45 value), great for desiccated countenances of all skin types, to newly toned façades. The 25-minute treatment bastes mugs with a hydrating elixir designed to irrigate parched pores and leave skin as smooth as a freshly shaved bathtub (extractions are not included).
Cerón Salon, which uses L'Oréal Kerastase products for its strand-sculpting services, was a 2009 InStyle Beauty Blackbook pick for haircut. The salon's eponymous owner has studied in France under Europe's top stylists and worked with a slew of starlets, from Eva Longoria-Parker and Cindy Crawford to Lady Gaga. Entrust your locks to his fleet of deft-scissored stylists for an up-to-date coif chopping, then let them blow in a bouncy style. Next, while you recline in a black leather armchair, a friendly aesthetician will give your finger and toe helmets the gleaming finish, smooth edges, and lack of roofing tar they deserve. The facial included with this package packs the rejuvenating punch of a steaming Icelandic geothermal vent; it delves deep into pores to rid them of gunk and grime and infuse them with moisture and self-esteem, making skin soft, firm, and radiant.
In 1991, Aqua Medical Spa began as a modest, four-employee salon specializing in simple hair and nail treatments. The business rapidly grew to lavish clients with cutting-edge services that nourished the face and body, and by 2000, it had transformed into one of Dallas's first medical spas. Today, the spa continues to treat men and women with a unique combination of rejuvenating spa services and results-driven medical treatments. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ben Tittle leads a team of doctors and nurses in enhancing outer appearances with noninvasive Zerona laser treatments, Botox cosmetic injections, and plastic surgery. Spa specialists focus on inner well-being with both classic and high-tech services—including laser- and radio-frequency-based facials and massages that begin with a consultation and end with a careful analysis of the client's dream journal.
Medical aesthetician Diana Luna has developed her touch for topical skincare during the past eight years, teaming up with a physician to expand their ability to treat skin at Spa D'Luna. Luna's focus is healthful, youthful skin, which Diana cultivates with Image Skincare tonics that resurface damaged areas and refine pores. The resident medical director plumps aging skin with cosmetic injections and oversees the use of noninvasive lasers, which stimulate cellular turnover and collagen production in the epidermis to create a smooth surface for playing air hockey. For a spell of relaxation, the day spa helps knead stress out of bodies with massage offerings and hair removal via sugaring.
