Led by owner Kimberly Thompson, an entrepreneur, mother, writer, and former model, the clinical staff at Shangri-la Medispa helps busy clients to look and feel their best. A physician tends to both their inner and outer needs by administering cosmetic fillers and overseeing the weight-management program. An experienced medical aesthetician fine-tunes appearances with laser and microcurrent treatments, chemical peels, and waxing. The medispa has also developed its own product line, Shangri-La Skin By Kim. The team also includes a registered nurse who can advise patients on their treatment options or answer any questions, from ?how much downtime is required?? to ?is the human appendix an extraterrestrial tracking device??
The crew performs services in whimsically themed treatment rooms filled with shabby-chic tables and dressers. Clients can relax in spaces decorated with such touches as a colorful London sign and lamps that resemble the Eiffel Tower and an antique streetlamp. In the black-and-white facial room, a picture of Marilyn Monroe glamorously oversees skincare treatments.
Anyone who works in art restoration can tell you that to do a good job, you have to consider the piece as a whole. The aestheticians and massage therapists at Skin and Body Solutions Day Spa have the same philosophy, which is why their menu extends past facials to include body wraps, massages, and even airbrush tanning. The express facial quickly cleanses and exfoliates the skin before a custom rubberizing mask finishes perfecting with toning and hydration. Clients in the mood for heavy-duty restoration can opt for the Whole ShaBang—an 85-minute facial that includes deep cleansing, a yogurt peel, an oxygen wrap, and a seaweed mask before finishing with fireworks, flying doves, and a standing ovation. Full-body waxing services remove unwanted hair obscuring facial features, and airbrush tanning imparts a golden-brown hue. Massage services disentangle muscle knots and include a paraffin foot wrap.
At two locations across the Metroplex area, licensed massage therapists at The Massage Co. have loosened muscles and reduced stress during more than 40,000 massages. They customize seven different modalities, ranging from the targeted finger pressure of trigger-point therapy to the ancient art of reflexology, which is designed to address health issues throughout the whole body via channels in the feet. Massage therapy's myriad health benefits include better circulation, improved flexibility, and an enhanced capacity for creative thought, which comes in handy when converting your twin mattress to a king-size using nothing but bubble wrap.
From nail repair to UV gels, Artistic Nails & Spa offers services and treatments that turn every finger and toe into a work of art. Acrylic, pink-and-whites, and glitter nails are a few examples of artificial sets that can ramp up nails that have been damaged or chewed by anxious winter gloves. To pamper clients, staff members also offer lavish treatments such as the luxury combo mani-pedi, which includes cooling gel, a foot mask, and a 20-minute massage. During all treatments, hands and feet receive the full attention of a technician, who dotes over each extremity with patience and polish. The nail spa bookends its service menu with skilled nail art and quick polish changes for on-the-go clients.
Whether their clients seek relaxation or beautification, the staff at Images Salon delivers with a wide range of salon and spa services. Manicurists pamper hands and feet with hydrating manicures and pedicures, prettifying nails with long-lasting Shellac polish. Massage therapists perform treatments aimed purely at relaxation, augmented with aromatherapy or scalp massages, which use warm oil to soothe skin and prevent brain freeze. In the salon, stylists create new looks with everything from cuts and conditioning to keratin straightening treatments, extensions, and wig customization. Here, the stylists specialize in services for hair of all ethnicities, including natural styles.
