Janet Vercelli, Dallas Laser Solutions’ resident expert, renders skin smooth, radiant, and more youthful by drawing upon the latest technology. Her skincare services combat uneven tone and fine lines by showering complexions with pulses of light. Laser hair-removal treatments employ specific wavelengths that heat up the melanin in follicles, leaving roots unable to grow and readying skin for head-to-toe temporary tattoos.
Across the nation, Sona MedSpa's staff beautify a range of skin types with the gentle touch of Alma lasers. Sun damage, unwanted hair, and spider veins dissolve under the beams of these cosmetic lasers, which can also resurface complexions. Their lasers also power tattoo removal services, which free skin from unwanted ink. They've got Botox and dermal fillers at their disposal, too.
Not long after Dr. Kathryn Wood became a board-certified Ob/Gyn specialist in 1990, she began to gravitate toward medical aesthetics. Dr. Wood gathered a team of registered nurses, licensed medical aestheticians, and laser technicians to found Dermalase in 2000.
Today, the team firms up skin with Botox and Juvederm treatments. It also spot-treats fat with body-contouring sessions and resurfaces faces with Fraxel treatments, two services that tend to engender the most gratitude from clients. Most often, medical aestheticians find themselves performing tattoo removals. But for all the lasers and medical technology in the office, one of the medical aestheticians reports that the humble chemical peel is her favorite service to perform "because you get the fastest results for great looking skin!"

If not for expert waxing technicians like Fannie Turner, hair would grow uncontrollably and eventually overthrow all the governments. At My Wax Lounge, her removal services are diverse, ranging from traditional chin and upper-lip waxing to full-on Brazilians for men and women. She also offers paraffin wax therapy, which can relieve such ailments as arthritis and muscle spasms.
Winks Lash Lounge enhances peeper appearances with individually applied lash extensions. Since they meticulously apply lashes one-by-one, they create a completely natural look while adding luxurious length and volume. For those seeking flair, they also affix color lashes in shades of purple, green, pink, and blue. Lash and brow tinting, as well as waxing services, round out their menu of indulgent beauty treatments.
Though the beauty gurus at Uptown Laser & Skin address problems on the surface of the body, their treatments aim for a deep-seated change in confidence. To this end, they use the GentleYAG laser, whose pulses of focused light can reduce unwanted hair, unsightly surface veins, and wrinkles from all skin types while its Dynamic Cooling Device soothes targeted areas. The technicians also administer laser-free skin care. For microdermabrasion sessions, they wield the DermaSweep MD's wand to unclog pores and buff away dead cells. The wand comes with nine different heads that vary based on their function—some dispense nourishing serums to guard against acne and signs of aging, whereas others have more bristle tips to polish cheeks until you can see yourself seeing yourself in the mirror. Rounding out their treatment menu, the spa uses Neocutis skincare products to target dryness, lines, and the after-effects of other noninvasive procedures.
