Dr. Kim Ross likes to help people look and feel their best. By graduating college first in her class and garnering the single dermatology residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, she equipped herself with the skills to do just that. Over a more than 10-year career, Dr. Ross has enhanced the appearances and well-being of countless patients with a meticulous manner that has earned her invitations to present at conferences throughout the country. She and her team perform FDA-approved treatments that bolster images inside and out, including microdermabrasion and chemical peels to freshen skin, cosmetic injections to regain youthful appearances, and laser hair and spider-vein removal to prepare for dates with marble statues.
Belle Waxing and Skincare founder Elizabeth Winston-Williams believes that what’s good for the environment is also good for the skin; namely, products that eschew harsh additives, synthetic fragrance, and paraben preservatives. 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.
