Dr. Lawrence Broder of Beleza Med Spa began his 16-year career in surgery and primary care, but has shifted his dedication to medical aesthetics, helping people reshape their bodies and evade signs of aging. He continues to build on his surgical knowledge with coursework and bihourly games of Operation, and has slimmed more than 500 physiques with laser-driven SmartLipo and smoothed hundreds of complexions with DOT (dermal optical thermolysis) resurfacing treatments. Dr. Broder supervises each of Beleza's locations, ensuring that every confidence-boosting injection, augmentation, lift, and peel is done with expertise and professionalism.
The highly trained staff at VIP Skin Spa customizes each and every one of their treatments to meet the specific aesthetic needs of their clients. Cleansers and serums are chosen carefully for unique benefits, such as anti-aging or anti-acne, and more advanced techniques are used to fight off laxity, brown spots, and cheetah spots. The aestheticians can administer microcurrent treatments on either the face or the body, use gentle electric pulses that promote toning and tightening. Clients are made to feel welcome from the moment they walk in the door and can enjoy a cucumber water or hot herbal tea from the refreshment bar.
Renew Med Spa’s staff of trained aestheticians and massage therapists create a soothing atmosphere that helps nurture wellness both inside and out. Their menu of spa treatments runs the gamut from non-invasive body contouring that helps fight fat and shed planetary rings to Reiki massages that help alleviate chronic pain by targeting strategic pressure points. Other massage modalities include prenatal, hot-stone, and craniosacral massages. They also offer a free initial consultation to help determine the best treatment for clients. This helps the aestheticians carefully tailor facials to combat sun damage, age spots, and acne. With each facial, guests receive a complimentary massage and steam exfoliation.
Harmony & Health Acupuncture relies on drug-free restorative therapy to address a diverse number of ailments, including allergies, asthma, chronic pain, and sleeping disorders.

With that in mind, and placing the needs of each individual patient above all else, Harmony & Health delivers acupuncture treatments, massage therapy, and prescribes Chinese herbs, which may include tea pills, powders, and topicals.
It's called the million-dollar stretch. After placing both palms on the hip joint, she slides one hand up the back, and the other hand down the leg––a soothing traction that is a favorite among her massage clients. Jasmine Painter has always loved healing, from her first job selling vitamin and essential oils, to today, working as a fully licensed massage therapist. While Sunlight cascades through her studio's peach curtains, client aches surrender to flowing hot stone therapy, Swedish strokes, and deep-tissue pressure.
Gayla was sipping an organic iced coffee as she strolled down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington DC, contemplating her lifelong problem with stains. Whether spaghetti sauce on white shirts or the remnants of caffeinated drinks on teeth, stains bothered her deeply. Coffee. Stains. Teeth. That's when, walking by the White House—home to a Texan President at the time—she realized: everything's bigger in Texas, so why shouldn't that be true of their stains? She decided then to open an organic teeth-whitening spa in Austin. After her epiphany, Gayla gathered a team of beauty consultants, customer-service representatives, operations officers, and business consultants and opened My Texas Smile. She and her team pool their individual talents to brighten smiles for up to 12 months without using harsh chemicals.
