Between graduating from beauty school and earning certifications in Lanza, Schwarzkopf, and the Coppola Keratin-Smoothing system, stylist Adrianne Lowes somehow managed to get two businesses off the ground. Her superhuman work ethic eventually led her to start a third business, The Ritz Salon and Spa, which has grown from her passion project into Burleson’s go-to spot for professional styling and relaxation.
For evidence of Adrianne’s dedication to the interrelated arts of beauty and health, one need not look further than The Ritz’s lengthy list of services, which range from the salon’s hair and waxing treatments to the spa’s facials and massages. The spa even boasts a therapy center, where resident chiropractor Dr. Don Haygood heals aching muscles with chiropractic, med-spa, and acupuncture treatments. Along with its beauty and health services, The Ritz houses a chic fashion boutique, where visitors can search for a cute outfit to complement their newly cropped hair or freshly scrubbed face tattoos.
The founder of Med Spa at Seena One, Dr. Anees, draws on his specialization in endocrinology, gastroenterology, and his advanced training in laser spa technology to round out a list of services designed to counteract the effects of aging. His interest in laser skin rejuvenation extends to his skilled team of medical aestheticians, who regularly zap follicles with noninvasive Lumenis lasers and break down unsightly veins with penetrating heat energy. The spa?s cosmetic aestheticians find the sweet spot between relaxation and results, expunging stress and blemishes with facials, massages, and infrared-sauna treatments that sizzle heavy-metal toxins still lingering long after their 1980s heyday.
Balch Interventional Pain and Wellness Center splits its services between pain management and aesthetic care. The facility relies on physical, injection, and medication therapies to remedy a number of serious conditions, including chronic pain, headaches, and carpal tunnel syndrome. On the wellness side, cutting-edge technology, such as Cutera laser therapy, zaps away hair and unsightly veins, and a full line of SkinPhD products keeps epidermal surfaces smooth and healthy.
Krystal Dees of Lashes & Locks wields her styling expertise over curly and straight hair, and every texture in between. She sets to work in a salon and spa that, in addition to offering hair treatments, also provides clients with skin care services such as facials, body wraps, and tanning. To cap off new looks, the team applies mink and synthetic extensions to eyelashes, drawing attention to faces and away from vestigial tails.
Under the guidance of board-certified surgeon Dr. Barry Bass, the medical marksmen of Southwest Vein and Laser Center deploy precision lasers to fend off encroaching follicular foes. Concentrated pulses of carefully calibrated light work to banish bristles from the upper lip, chin (each a $99 value/treatment), ears, both underarms, or bikini line (each a $150 value/treatment), evicting ne'er-do-well hairs while avoiding angry complaint letters from neighboring skin cells. For this deal, all six sessions must treat the same body area, which helps to ensure long-term reduction in hair regrowth. The length of each session depends on the area being treated and the complexity of negotiations if renegade hairs take nearby birthmarks hostage.
Seasoned aesthetician Debra Andrus customizes a full slate of skincare services, such as waxing sessions, permanent-makeup applications, and state-of-the-art HydraFacials, to beautify epidermal landscapes. During treatments, Andrus' team eschews over-the-counter cosmetics for professional, all-natural products from brands such as Jane Iredale and Osmosis Skincare. Wrinkles Away Skincare is also home to a licensed massage therapist who uses several modalities—including hot- and cold-stone therapy and bamboo techniques—along with a cadre of catchy protest slogans to oust tyrannous tension from backsides.
