Pedestrians navigating the historical charm of McKinney's downtown square step into Pavitra Organic Day Spa and find themselves in another type of nostalgic haven—one that honors a time when skincare was all-natural. The eco-friendly spa's name originates from the Sanskrit word meaning "pure" and is honored in the spa's use of botanically based and organic products from brands such as Juice Beauty and Farmaesthetics. Services such as the signature organic facial employ only eco-friendly supplies, and staffers enhance massages with sea salt from WoodSprite's Muscle Mender line. Experts also remove hair from face and body using an all-natural blend of beeswax and essential oils.
The spa's waiting area amplifies its relaxing ambiance with a soft, ecru-colored sofa and decorations inspired by nature, including sand, stones, tree branches, and a cross-section of rainbow preserved in a glass jar. The crew further demonstrates its commitment to caring for the world by sponsoring community events.
Status Body Studio's aestheticians turn back body clocks in a relaxing beauty haven firmly lodged in the Croatian village?inspired Adriatica. Custom facials and Actifirm's enzyme-based Z-Peels reenergize lackluster complexions, and ultrasonic microdermabrasion treatments soothingly cleanse visages of dead skin cells and any remnants of last year's Halloween mask. Powered by advanced laser systems such as the Soprano XLi and the Laser360, med-spa procedures gently contour bodies and relieve them of unwanted hair, spider veins, and tattoos. Organic body sugaring provides a more natural strand-banishing method than luring out hair with seductive Vidal Sassoon commercials. To deal with tension and deep-burrowing stress, patrons can grab catnaps under the kneading hands of Status Body Studio's therapists, who deliver custom massages fortified with hot packs, compression strokes, towels, and heated stones.
The massage therapists at Horizon Massage and Wellness have noticed something over their more than 18 years in business: an increase in stress among their patients. They do their best to counteract this rising tension with soothing handiwork in styles that range from gently relaxing Swedish massage to prenatal massage to the intense strokes of deep-tissue massage. Not only working out of their Dallas-area locations, staffers occasionally travel to local businesses to perform 15-minute massages on especially rigid office chairs.
A quick glance at Alexandra Bradley's curriculum vitae reveals an unstoppable passion for skincare: she has a master's degree in physical therapy with a specialty in medical aesthetics; she graduated with honors from the Ogle School; and she is certified by the state of Texas. In addition, as a native Brazilian, she transformed appearances by running a beauty center in her hometown of Belo Horizonte. Backed by her education and a cumulative 18 years of working with plastic surgeons and dermatologists in Brazil and the United States, Bradley clarifies and rejuvenates skin through a collection of skin therapies using pharmaceutical-grade and environmentally friendly products. With an advanced hyfrecator cauterization device, she successfully dispels veins and skin growths including skin tags, sun spots, moles, and ghost tails. She also uses advanced technologies during a collection of peels, which can deploy lasers to resurface the skin.
Although it's hard to tell by looking at Fabulous Esthetics owner Amanda Walthall's healthy complexion, she's had ample opportunities to put various skincare products to the test while treating her own epidermal concerns. This first-hand familiarity, paired with seven years spent working for medical spas throughout the Midwest, makes her a trustworthy skincare specialist—well versed in chemical peels, facials, and microdermabrasion practices. Fabulous Esthetics specializes in treating acne-prone or aging skin with the most effective products and services available, favoring ingredients such as alpha hydroxy acid and vitamin C squeezed from oranges by supermodels. Microdermabrasion treatments whisk away weathered skin cells, waxing services uproot hairs to leave skin smooth, and paraben-free airbrush tanning gilds bodies for up to 14 days.
Stylists at the full-service Creative Fringe Salon design coifs for both male and female clients using products from Morrocanoil, Aquage, and Enjoy. Face-framing highlights add dimension to dull strands, and single-process color services wash away any grays and add rich color. Stylists combat frizz with smoothing keratin treatments and add moisturizing deep conditioners until manes shine like stars covered in new pennies. Massage therapists in the adjoining A Royal Touch cut through muscle tension with relaxing kneads and hot-stone treatments. Also attached is Brandy’s Spa& Lash Retreat, where they complete new looks with eyelash extensions, pore-purifying facials, and spray tans. Before and after appointments, clients may peruse a selection of boutique-style clothing and accessories or recline in one of a herd of zebra-print chairs.
