Certified by the American Board of Surgery and an affiliate of seven surgery centers, Dr. Clayton A. Frenzel completed more than 2,000 surgical procedures during his training at some of the nation’s most competitive surgical programs, honing an expertise he now brings to his practice at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery. Aiming to put clients at ease, the personable Dr. Frenzel consults each patient one-on-one before performing cosmetic procedures such as breast or body surgery, facial rejuvenation, or postbariatric contouring, designed to remove loose skin after significant weight loss. Additionally, Frenzel and his team noninvasively enhance physiques through nonsurgical procedures ranging from Botox injections to chemical peels.
Shea Gipson is the face behind Real-Eyez Beauty, but around town, most people just know her as "The Lash Lady". A board-certified medical assistant, licensed aesthetician, and certified eyelash technician, she knows there's no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to enhancing lashes. And so, she offers her customers numerous avenues by which to boost the power of each sultry glance. Traditionalists may prefer a simple lash tint in the hue of their choice, while those looking for some extra oomph can try semi-permanent extensions, individual lashes, or even a Lash Lift, which lengthens and shapes the natural lashes, and helps them keep their new curve for up to two months. To complement fuller, darker eye fringe, Shea also shapes brows by waxing or threading away errant hairs, and she can put eye pencils out of work by tinting brows in a natural-looking shade.
After practicing for 600 hours to earn her massage therapist's license, Monique Zamora wasted no time in starting her own massage business, Virt? Spa. She specializes in five distinct modalities, but might incorporate any or all of them into a single treatment, depending on a client's needs. She can relieve simple tension with the long, gentle surface strokes of Swedish massage, or delve deeper into the tissues to target trigger points?hyper-irritable spots associated with knots, taut bands of muscle fibers, and accidentally swallowed water pistols.

Lotus Facials focuses its spa offerings on treatments that not only improve the body's exterior, but also make clients feel better from the inside out. Each of the available facials kicks off with a consultation and skin analysis. This allows skincare experts to select the types of products, techniques, and magical incantations that will work best for each individual. In addition to facials—each of which can be paired with microdermabrasion or a peel—Lotus's clients can also opt for waxing services or a relaxing massage. Lotus Facials operates out of The Massage Place and Wellness Center.
Lasting Lines started as most great businesses start: with eyebrows. Now 35 years have passed, and Renee Ryan’s permanent-makeup business has blossomed into a successful aesthetic school and clinic. Renee and her highly trained staff can outfit clients with new brows, or use their modern electrolysis equipment to remove hair, skin tags, moles, and spider veins. Clients may also solicit Lasting Lines for sleek eyelash extensions, or retreat to a private room for a soothing deep-tissue massage from registered massage therapist Charles Linville.
Many of the treatments at Tribute Nails and Spa look good enough to eat—organic pineapple masks and peels blended from raw sugar clarify skin during facials, and rosewater and mango creams soften skin during manicures and pedicures. Other treatments, such as Swedish massages and steam baths, loosen tight muscles and soften overcooked brownies.
