Though her skin- and body-care treatments may seem comparable to those found at a traditional spa, aesthetician Samantha Smith strives for clinical rather than superficial results with each service. The owner and head aesthetician at Elite Skin Solutions continually furthers her beauty know-how through ongoing education: after completing a 750-hour esthetology program in 2010, she enrolled in a nursing program so that she could offer clients the latest med-spa services. Her treatments—which include facials, chemical peels, and nonsurgical face-lifts—rely on physician-grade products and innovative technologies such as microcurrents, microskin needling, and PCA Skin products to produce optimal results with minimal downtime.
The staff at Skin and Body Studio leads an army of facials, each teeming with science-grade products, putting a stop to the chicanery of time and age. All services—from micropeels to nonsurgical face-lifts—wear glimmering livery of science-grade ingredients, such as HydroPeptide’s serums that incorporate 21 active peptides, including collagen. The staff also specializes in massages, waxing, and eyelash tinting, which disguises lashes that welsh on their horse-racing debts.
Straw-hued walls and weathered metal accents give an earthy feel to the treatment rooms that ensconce Southlake Skin Care Studio’s clients, who linger beneath a velvet throw during treatments. Nestled within the Suite Escapes Salon complex, Julie Williams deep cleanses skin with European-style facials fortified with vitamins and plant-derived serums. Peels ranging in potency and hard and soft wax arm aesthetes for procedures, and the scents of hibiscus, pumpkin, and berries drift from products, raising fond memories of growing up in a cornucopia.
The staff at Styles of India focuses solely on the art of hair removal to shape brows and remove unwanted fuzz across the entire physique. An ancient technique, threading makes use of pure cotton strands, rolled and lifted along the face and eyebrows to remove hair in a straight line—ideal for eyebrows or sculpting sideburns into the style Benjamin Franklin sported: lightning bolts. The technicians at Styles of India are also adept with wax, removing unwanted hair from legs, arms, and bikini lines.
Kristen Jarvis is not just the owner of Body Boutique Spa, she is also a makeup artist, reflexology practitioner, and skincare expert. She brings a passion for pampering and beauty to every treatment she performs, whether it is a deep-cleaning facial or a sugaring hair-removal session. In addition to traditional makeup applications for weddings and special events, she also offers lash and brow tinting in place of coats of mascara or discreet daubs of squid ink.
Mozaik Skin & Body Studio revitalizes facial canvases and extracts unwanted hair follicles with signature procedures using exclusive beauty products. During the 30-minute express facial, technicians will extract dirt and underlying derivatives deeply embedded in pores, helping to remedy skin problems and make radiant hides easily viewable by satellites (a $55 value). Performed with the client’s choice of products, the express facial accommodates customers with jam-packed schedules. To achieve another type of smooth skin, sleek-seekers also get a Brazilian wax (a $55 value), helping to prepare bodies for summer swimsuit endeavors and wiggled escapes from King Kong’s delicate grasp. Mozaik is also offering a 10% discount on full price services booked the day of the Groupon appointment.
