Together, the team has safely erased more than 200,000 unwanted tattoos of all shapes, sizes, and colors using Lutronic Spectra lasers.

The lasers flit over skinscapes, fostering smooth, even skin with minimal risk of scarring, disrupting natural pigments, or attracting bored cats. In addition to getting rid of unwanted ink, the talented staff can also help to correct skin troubles with peels, microdermabrasion, and other skin care services.

She uses high-quality Berodin French depilatory wax when evicting fuzz from male and females clients, ensuring a clean environment with sanitized tables and linens, as well as a prohibition on double dipping sticks. To enhance natural beauty, her staff foregoes heavy foundations or bulky wax lips for Jane Iredale mineral makeup and round out their services with custom facial treatments and lash tinting. Elizabeth's licensed nutritionist, Tabitha Eavenson, studied at both Aveda School of Austin and Texas State University. She works with clients one-on-one to help them eat better, lose weight, and achieve glowing complexions.

On one hand, the med spa relies on the clinical expertise of its physician directors to rejuvenate clients’ skin with advanced treatments.

Technicians beautify nails with scrubs, paraffin dips, and glossy coats of polish while aestheticians tighten skin and release toxins with body wraps. Similarly results-based procedures include chemical peels, dermal fillers, and vibradermabrasion treatments that reduce the appearance of fine lines and barnacles stuck to the face.
