Looking tense at the beach is not so chic. So The Beach Shack preps sand-stompers for swim season with a relaxing repertoire of services that dissolve tension, whittle down body shapes, and install base tans. Bronzing artists deploy SunFX spray tans in a mere 10- to 15-minute block, leaving clients plenty of time to hit the shore and harpoon some beach balls. Onsite aestheticians slim silhouettes with infrared body wraps and brighten manes with feather hair extensions. Deeper transformations take place as the staff’s medical director renews faces with Botox and targets unwanted fuzz or spider veins with laser technology, readying legs for pants-free Fridays at the office. Once bodies are all set to storm a sand castle, patrons can don swimwear from prominent wet-friendly brands such as Billabong,, Roxy, and Ed Hardy.
Dermal fillers such as Botox and Juvéderm require injection by a steady, confident hand. Not only has Beautiful U Aesthetics’ nurse, Anne Hubbard, mastered the ministration of these cosmetic boosters, she's demonstrated the procedure on a live KARK 4 segment to illustrate the simplicity of the process and prove that she could do it while riding a unicycle and reciting the Cyrillic alphabet. Anne’s specialties range from skin-smoothing injectables to facial services such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels. She can also apply permanent eyeliner above and below the peepers, enhancing clients’ natural features without the wastefulness of applying makeup every morning or using up a birthday wish on something besides preventing asteroid strikes.
At Maumelle Medical Center, professional staffers led by doctors Salman and Abeer Hashmi aim the Cutera Xeo laser at follicular overgrowth to help cultivate smoother bodyscapes. Beams gently remove excess hair and discourage renewed growth, just as falcons discourage the growth of a gopher colony. Clients can fuse two Groupons to double treatments for heightened effectiveness or to target two areas. With each visit, skin continues to defuzz, shortening shaving time and improving aerodynamics while skydiving nude.
LIFT Esthetics and Body Sculpting - Hot Springs offers a menu of skincare services alongside soothing yoga sessions. Aesthetic services include facials customized to each individual's skin type, microdermabrasion, peels, and waxing.
At Sei Bella Med Spa, Dr. Anne Trussell leads a talented team of professionals who refresh and resurface skin with a variety of treatments, including gentle AccelaWave IPL sessions, wrinkle-reducing Botox and Juvéderm, and medical-grade chemical peels. Teresa Smith, the onsite massage therapist, helps assuage injuries, chronic pain, and stress with Swedish and deep-tissue massages, and works to remove fat and tighten skin with noninvasive Lipo-Ex sessions. Sei Bella's resident nurse, Sandy Siler, rounds out the staff, and rejuvenates faces with her certifications in Radiesse and DermaFrac treatments, both of which help reduce signs of aging with no downtime or time traveling.
Before starting his own practice, Dr. Edward J. Love obtained a medical degree from Tulane University and completed a plastic surgery residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Now at the helm of The Plastic Surgery Institute, Dr. Ed and his staff help beautify complexions and alter appearances with a full range of skincare and surgical procedures. Facials start with a soothing massage to melt away tension before steam, moisturizers, and masks clear pores of dirt and debris. Peels employ acidic solutions to remove the cracked and wrinkled top layers of epidermises, and microdermabrasion treatments utilize a diamond-encrusted device to buff away scars, dry skin, and Halloween masks of yore. For a more permanent change, clients can undergo a breast lift or reduction, facelift, or liposuction. Treatments can address any part of the face or torso with a complete reconstruction or minor adjustment.
