Each technician at Savvy Laser Hair Removal is certified by the Texas Department of State Health Services and shares a core goal of putting their clients at ease before each treatment. They introduce clients to the Candela GentleLASE machine, whose technology can not only oust hairs at the follicle but also prevent them from regrowing. With an eye toward comfort and safety, the technicians use a dynamic cooling feature to soothe the skin immediately after it receives a pulse from the laser. And because laser hair removal often requires more than one treatment, the staff makes it easy to book return appointments through an online system.

Licensed esthetician Belinda Fallon of Advanced Cosmetics frosts hides in UV- and paraben-free Fake Bake bronzer. During five-minute meetings with the airbrush, Fallon's steady hands mist glow-getters from toes to crown in an even coat of caramel shade selected to match each client's natural habitat in order to thwart hungry barn owls. Powered by botanical pigments, the gentle tanning solution hydrates and protects dermal layers without clogging pores or irritating sensitive skin. The formula dries into supple, glowing skin in 20 minutes without leaving behind telltale chemical smells, streaks, or artists’ signatures. With thorough exfoliation beforehand and proper care following each session, the new healthy hue can last five–seven days.
Though White Pearl Medical Spa specializes in a range of image-enhancing approaches, elos technology plays the starring role. By combining radio frequencies and laser light, the elos hand piece can vanquish hair follicles, diminish wrinkles and age spots, or ease acne with a simple fine-tuning of the controls and a glimpse of the blemish's mug shot. Aside from laser services, the staff smoothes skin with injectable dermal fillers, purifies pores with facials, and sloughs off dead cells with microdermabrasion treatments.
Under the direction of Dr. Sanjiv R. Kumar, a graduate of Johns Hopkins University and Harvard Medical School, Sonterra Laser Med Spa's licensed aestheticians and laser technicians efface signs of aging with attention to detail that garners the spa regular attention on KENS 5's Great Day SA. Advanced skin-analysis machines scan faces before services to give technicians a closer look at bacteria, sun damage, and wrinkles not visible to the naked or clothed eye. The results determine what skincare services best suit each client, including glo minerals chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermal-filler injections. The Lumenis LightSheer Duet laser treatment utilizes a larger spot size to reach greater depths of penetration and destroys hair strands at the root.
