Guests who come inside any of Malibu Tan?s many locations are greeted with a handshake. Though that might seem like an old-school approach to customer service, Malibu Tan?s owner encourages it as a genuine way for his staff to connect with each client and provide them with customized services. For more than 15 years, Malibu?s friendly staffers have also connected with higher-profile clients?including the Houston Dymano Girls team?by helping them choose the best of each facility?s tanning options for their skin types. With UV tanning, regardless of whether a client prefers a supine or standup system, they are bound to get a strong tan, as all UV bulbs are changed 200 hours before they hit capacity or finally crack open and release a butterfly. There are also plenty of UV-free options such as VersaSpa sunless tanning, which darkens exteriors with a hydrating DHA-based solution. Each location also offers tan-enhancing products from Designer Skin and California Tan.
Posh Nail Studio's team of dedicated, licensed technicians welcome guests to their upscale, modern facility and present a full lineup of nail, hair, and other salon services, maintaining a commitment to sanitation, quality work, and a high level of professionalism. Private rooms accoutered with leather recliners host clients, and the appointment-only scheduling paradigm reflects the staff's dedication to punctuality and respect for clients' time. The staff keeps things clean during manicures and pedicures by sanitizing all tools, never reusing files, and hanging a cautionary "Beware of Guard Soap" sign to keep germs at bay. On top of nail treatments, stylists also snip and shape locks with haircare treatments and tan hides with both UV- and sunless-tanning solutions.
At BODYanew MedSpa Texas, beauty specialists enhance appearances with laser technology, using the concentrated light for various purposes from hair removal to weight-loss management. Prior to any laser treatment, a technician determines the client's aesthetic goals, drawing up a personalized plan of action. Laser light works quickly and is noninvasive, allowing patients to achieve results with little to no downtime. Under the unblinking eye of laser light, waistlines slenderize, skin rejuvenates, and questionable tattoos of a beloved lamp are temporarily blinded. Recently, the company added hydrafacials to its menu of services. Hydrafacials mimic the action of microdermabrasion, but go beyond resurfacing skin to moisturize and nourish it.
Inside the climate-controlled Sun Angel tanning bed, a mist carries calming scents while a sensor automatically measures the tanner's UV light sensitivity to reduce the chance of sunburn. E-Z Tan provides a customizable tanning experience to the greater Houston area with four locations, furnishing each bronzing shop with four types of UV beds, which also include the Affinity 950 Ultra Power bed which helps patrons obtain the darkest results possible. E-Z Tan clients also have a sunless option in the form of the private, self-serve Mystic Tan spray-tan booth that uses automated technology to mist bodies uniformly, from contours to crevices to extra sets of knee joints.
Dr. Elizabeth Wanner combines her health-care background with an insatiable interest in medical aesthetic advancements. Wearing her medical doctorate from University of Texas as a paper hat, Dr. Wanner continues to fill her reservoir of knowledge by attending courses and seminars sponsored by Cynosure, a laser manufacturer, and Dr. Stephen Mulholland, a renowned cosmetic plastic surgeon. Armed with this expertise, she and her team wield an arsenal of FDA-approved lasers to zap unsightly veins, body hair, and age spots, and employ medical-grade injectable fillers to plump up slack skin.
The little touches make all the difference at A-1 Amazing Massage & Day Spa. Hot stones and aromatherapy amplify the calming effects of massage, and the steam tent that clients lie inside during body wraps makes the wraps toastier than a greenhouse in the Sahara. The spa also provides traditional and LED-based facials, exfoliating back treatments, and sea-salt body polishes.
