Estrella Massage Therapy's Estrella Ortega trained at the Academy for Massage Therapy Training. There, she cultivated her skills in Swedish, deep-tissue, trigger-point, and prenatal modalities. She also performs spa treatments such as mud and paraffin masks, and hot-stone treatments for feet and hands—which, since everything's bigger in Texas, are actually hot-bolder treatments.
In addition to B12 injections, Dr. Rosa Fuentes guides the FDA-approved Lapex LipoLaser across hard-to-tone areas, from bellies to love handles, to whittle away inches and minimize the appearance of cellulite. Patients can further boost well-being with other services, such as lipossage, massage, laser nail fungus removal, and laser tattoo removal.
As a board-certified plastic surgeon in Texas, Arkansas, California, Pennsylvania and Florida, Dr. Thomas Jeneby helps patients seeking drastic as well as subtle cosmetic changes. In addition to performing established surgical procedures, Dr. Jeneby embraces new technologies and even trains healthcare professionals nationwide in the use of SmartLipo body-contouring systems and DOT Therapy laser skin-resurfacing treatments.
He’s joined in San Antonio by Spa Black’s dedicated staff, which includes medical aestheticians, an anesthesiologist, and medical assistants. Together, this team performs a wide array of cosmetic surgical procedures as well as noninvasive treatments. The center uses cosmetic laser systems that can generate dramatic change by helping erase unwanted hairs and spider veins. Microdermabrasion sessions, chemical peels, and cellulite therapy round out the menu of contouring and resurfacing skincare treatments.
The silhouette professionals at Zespa enhance physiques with non-invasive, FDA-approved Zerona laser treatments, the Venus Freeze skin-rejuvenation system, and Lipo-Light technology. Comprehensive body-contouring plans encourage healthier habits and lasting inch loss by harnessing Zerona's cold-laser technology, which liquefies lipids at the cellular level, allowing the fat to run screaming from the body like a donut that mistakenly ends up in a health-food store. A series of treatments can shrink the circumference of the waist, hips, thighs, or other target areas. Venus Freeze, which Zespa compares to a hot-stone massage, works to tighten skin, reducing wrinkles and cellulite and making skin appear as youthful-looking as a puppy wearing pigtails. The non-invasive Lipo-Light uses LED technology to directly target fat cells in problem areas such as the abs, arms, and neck.
Therapeutic Body Concepts' licensed muscle maestros conduct beleaguered backs and limbs in a symphony of relaxation, deploying Swedish massage techniques in playfully decorated private rooms. The Swedish massage is characterized by elongated strokes and kneading of the superficial layer of muscles, moves that have been known to improve circulation, eradicate tension, and provoke delicious chemical reactions in yeast. Carefully crafted experiences relax brains as well as bodies: eight themed destination rooms send minds on mini vacations via images of lakeside vistas or sun-drenched beaches, all without the hassle of bag checks or brain-cavity searches.
You don’t need to set foot in Royal VI to get a radiant face. Sure, the spa keeps a team of trained skincare experts on staff, and the simple geometry of the slate-and-white decor may urge visitors to stay a while. But Royal VI’s real specialty lies in its prefabricated facial masks, which work their magic whether clients are in an aesthetician’s chair or curled up at home. With roots in Japanese skincare principles, the masks brim with natural botanicals, herbal extracts, and clinically proven active ingredients that tackle blemishes from a variety of angles. From the oil and acne of youth to the fine lines of turning from a puppet into a real person, clients can ease their individual problems with one of nine specialized masks. Of course, no spa would be complete without a little pampering: Royal VI also curates a menu of facial services that call on powerful botanicals, natural enzymes, and diamond microdermabrasion wands to polish faces in the spa’s tranquil environs.
