San Antonio's Slender Solution & Spa helps patients stay in control of their calorie intake with medically supervised, custom diet plans that can help melt away those last few stubborn pounds resistant to exercise and more generalized diet plans. The presiding physician and a team of nurse-practitioners consult closely with patients before crafting diets and supplementing them with metabolism-boosting B-12 injections, appetite suppressants, pound-shedding HCG injections, and tear-inspiring pep talks.
In addition to helping clients stay trim, the spa offers a full menu of beautifying services, including custom facials, body wraps, eyelash and eyebrow tinting, and massages. Decadent treatments, such as the luxurious 24-karat gold facial, treat skin to intense ant-wrinkle protection while reviving surfaces with youthful vibrancy. Clients may extend their day of beauty with a raw sugar glow scrub that polishes away dead skin cells or indulge in a back facial that cleanses hard-to-reach spots to reveal smooth, even-toned skin.
When she’s not adding the glitz to models for runway couture shows, owner Johanna Woodfin beautifies clients with makeup and teeth-whitening services. As a certified BriteWhite technician, she coats teeth with carbamide-peroxide gel and shines an LED light over the chompers to brighten smiles in less than 60 minutes. Johanna and her team’s makeover expertise extends to doing portrait and costume makeup, as well as adding the finishing touches to beaming brides and reviving faces with postsurgical makeovers. Further demonstrating their artistic attention to detail, they plump up lashes with lash extensions and decorate bodies with temporary tattoos, helping aspiring yet noncommittal bikers shop around for the right crew.
Evenings, weekends, or same day—the team at Kris Dental goes out of its way to accommodate patients with flexible scheduling, as well as a vast menu of services. The office's fully licensed dentist specializes in cosmetic and general dentistry, with treatments that range from cleanings and dental implants to extractions, oral surgery, and whitening.
The life of David Lewis overlaps a great deal with that of his father, Robert. After graduating from dental school, both men joined the US Army Dental Corps, where they served soldiers with their knowledge of oral care. Robert established his practice in 1963 and then watched as his son followed his career path and eventually joined him in San Antonio. Today, they work together, bringing 70 years of combined experience to their cosmetic and dental treatments.
Though their pasts indicate a regard for tradition, both David and Robert continually update their education and techniques. The dental duo converts metal fillings into tooth-colored ones, brightens smiles with porcelain veneers, and often advocates for clear Invisalign aligners instead of wire braces or tiny etiquette coaches that tell teeth to stand up straight. Their proficiency in endodontic procedures such as root canals can save patients the trouble of finding a specialist, and they reward those who consistently schedule six-month checkups with free whitening kits.
As one of the premier teeth whitening lounges in the region, I Heart White Teeth tasks itself with keeping teeth gleaming white with its proprietary teeth-whitening system in a serene atmosphere. The peroxide gel works its magic over the course of two 20-minute sessions, each extracting a progressively deeper set of stains and remnants from layer cakes. Aside from its whitening properties, the gel boasts a mineral-rich formula that fortifies dental enamel.
The Perfect Touch aims to magnify beauty and boost guests' confidence with a wide range of aesthetic treatments. Teeth-whitening sessions, for example, use an organic hydrogen peroxide gel and LED laser light to undo the effects of years of smoking, wine drinking, or gargling with soy sauce. Gleaming, long-lasting Shellac manicures pamper and beautify hands, and epsom-salt pedicures smooth calluses with a peppermint foot scrub and lavender or cucumber lotion. Paraffin-therapy treatments are available as an add-on to help soothe dry skin and promote better circulation in the fingers and toes.
