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.
Melissa Subia, the woman behind Serene Therapeutic Spa, helps her clients look their best with eyelash extensions, makeup application, and facial treatments. For extensions, Subia uses natural-looking or colored synthetic lashes to give eyes longer, fuller looks. Subia can also use skin treatments to treat acne or apply makeup for special occasions and everyday wear.
Carol Bly pioneered her own line of all-natural mineral makeup and skincare products, which she and her staff use to beautify guests at Purity Botanicals. Bly's thorough knowledge of cosmetic products helps her work with clients to develop effective skincare regimens designed to address individual concerns.
At Beauty by Brazil, Brazilian wax doesn't just refer to a style of waxing. It also refers to the wax itself, which is imported from the South American country and includes its trademark natural ingredients and sensitive-skin formula. Of course, services range far beyond hair removal. Aestheticians also apply the complex formulas of glycolic and enzyme chemical peels to erase wrinkles and blemishes, or they perform multistep European facials to hydrate and cleanse the skin. Clients can even schedule professional makeup applications, either at the salon itself or on location.

A Touch of Heaven Salon Massage & Day Spa stocks a large inventory of well-respected pampering products. Nail technicians employ OPI and Gelish polish, and hairstylists primp tresses with smart Solutions, Redken, Sexy Hair, and KMS products. An assemblage of massage therapists and aestheticians performs indulgent work at the spa too, allying to relax and beautify their clients. They execute 10 varieties of massage, from the gentle, simple Swedish to the choreographed complexity of the four-handed massage—performed by two therapists or one octopus also juggling four tennis balls. They combine treatments of the body's inner tissues with herbal or peppermint-scented wraps to rejuvenate the outer layer.
Outside of the private rooms lies the salon proper, where stylists carefully ply their craft on the hair and nails of their patrons. They imbue locks with new color, wax away unwanted hair, and even provide spray tans to maintain a summery glow throughout winter's tenure.
