An offshoot of Dr. Jeanne Smith's obstetric and gynecological practice, Pampered Expectations Medical Spa tends to beauty both inside and out. The spa’s experienced staff members sic anti-aging facials on laugh lines and weight-loss programs on extra pounds. In Dr. Smith's sister practice, she compassionately shepherds patients toward motherhood with obstetric services, particularly doting on those affected by risky conditions such as gestational diabetes and preterm labor. She also helps new broods to plan and nurture their family trees, performing minimally invasive surgical procedures in her office, at the hospital, or in the backseat of a Dodge Dynasty as needed.
Dr. Smith augments her healing with luxurious amenities, inviting patients to sink into the Spring office's cozy waiting-room seating and glug free coffee, tea, or bottled water. Complimentary WiFi and soothing music ease patrons into treatments atop heated exam tables and sheets warmer and softer than a curious kitten who stumbled into a bowl of soup. During downtime, personal TVs in each room entertain patients with the day’s latest broadcasts.
It's easy to see that Sherry Summers-Ball is passionate about the human body. She has traveled throughout Texas training doctors, clinicians, and therapists in Endermologie; and she has advanced knowledge on post-surgery healing. She now runs Body BeneFits, which has received many accolades in Living Magazine's Best of The Woodlands, including best spa, med spa, facials, tanning, waxing, and massage.
Under Sherry's guidance a team of aestheticians, massage therapists, and medical professionals beautify bodies with time-tested and cutting-edge treatments. An array of body wraps, such as the Sudatonic infrared Detox wrap, help to smooth and soften the skin, whereas Endermologie treatments help to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Clients can also receive services such as skin tightening, IPL, and laser hair removal. And just walking into Body BeneFits itself can help clients relax—an orchid blossoms inside the lobby, which soothes eyes with neutral tones and cradles bodies on a giant sectional sofa.
At Angelical Massage, Angelica Leticia Garcia blends her training from the Houston School of Massage and the International School of Cosmetology. The Mexico City native has earned certifications in massage modalities such as the ancient Indian art of Ayurvedic massage as well as hot-stone therapy, which features river rocks tumbled smooth by rival gangs of angry carp. She accompanies her relaxing kneads with skincare treatments such as facials and exfoliating body wraps.
Medical aesthetician Maria Guadalupe Tello and her team at Day Dream Spa and Salon pamper epidermises with organic spa services ranging from facials and chemical peels to soothing massages. Also at the spa and salon, Patricia Yenera tackles the next phase of beauty by adorning visages with makeup and embellishing coiffures with hair extensions or cuts representing their favorite college lacrosse teams.
The Woodlands Threading's expert staffers emulate ancient Middle Eastern beautifiers by nimbly knotting thread into brow-pruning snares. Cotton loops precisely pluck strands with a twinge akin to tweezing in 15- to 30-minute threading sessions, swiftly molding brows into natural arches or handlebar mustaches. The chemical-free threading services touch up forehead fringe without irritating sensitive complexions or inciting the wrath of ingrown hairs, which is common with waxing. Over-eye fuzz remains sequestered within imposed borders for two–three weeks, much like mock-trial grand juries.
