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.
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.
In cosmetology school, MieleDolce founder Luis Iturralde let his fellow students wax him for a class demonstration. His allergic reaction to the chemical wax made it a demonstration of more than proper waxing technique; his brief modeling gig also showed the importance of beauty treatments that avoid irritating skin. Iturralde carried this lesson to his spa, MieleDolce, where the staff sidestep chemical waxes in favor of threading or electrolysis.
The center’s specialty, however, consists of extending hair: its semipermanent silk and mink lash extensions come in a variety of lengths and curvatures, and technicians ensure a natural look by attaching them hair by hair. Additional services range from slimming body wraps infused with aloe vera and herbs to micro skin needling, an anti-aging treatment that can combat wrinkles, scarring, and signs of playing rugby in a crawlspace.
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.
Using all-natural gels and fully customized tooth trays, Pro Smile Teeth Whitening brings professional-caliber dental treatments to homes across the country. After molding the kit to their own teeth?a process that takes just over a minute?customers fill the tray with gel and start their smile-brightening journey. Enhanced with an optional LED treatment, the whole procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes a day for 7 to 14 days, and results last up to six months with regular brushing. The trays retain their shape permanently, so unless customers lose them or sprout a set of tusks, they can repeat the whitening process as often as necessary by ordering gel refills.
