Though most licensed aestheticians know a great deal about the skincare products they use, few know their serums and creams as well as Lily Trieu knows hers. That’s because at Lily Med Spa, Trieu uses Lily Dermaceuticals skincare products, a line she cocreated with registered nurse and licensed aesthetician Tama Tran. The duo's more than 15 years of experience as aestheticians working in clinical skin-treatment centers gave them first-hand knowledge of the complexity of skin’s tone, sensitivity, and penchant for turning purple after excessive eggplant consumption.
This knowledge helped them to develop more than 50 pharmaceutical-grade products, used as part of the comprehensive aesthetic care plan they have developed for their patients. The duo uses authentic Botox and Dysport fillers to smooth out facial wrinkles and un-furrow frown lines. They also wield a Sciton laser to reduce unwanted hair, remove acne scarring, and boost skin texture and brightness with micro-peels. During SkinTyte treatments, infrared energy deeply heats soft tissue, causing it to tighten as it heals and stimulate collagen production. Fractional resurfacing, on the other hand, targets outer layers of skin, peeling away the old, damaged surface to reveal a healthier layer.
Nestled inside a sprawling yellow house first built in 1963, Mapleshade Spa retains much of its structure’s original charm. Out front, a set of wind chimes and a swing rock gently in the breeze above a huge wraparound porch. Garden fountains send up spouts of water amid colorful, aromatic thickets of rosemary, thyme, mint, lavender, and roses scattered beneath the boughs of large trees.
This bucolic setting surrounds Mapleshade Spa’s eight treatment rooms, where aestheticians set to work pampering their clientele with botanical skincare products from Pevonia and Éminence Organics. To account for different skin types and concerns, the staff offers more than 10 types of facials—all of which can be performed outside if desired—and an array of body treatments, including massages and body wraps. Stylists trim and highlight tresses in the hair salon while nail techs brush Shellac polish onto digits in both public and private nailcare areas. Mapleshade Spa frequently hosts spa parties to celebrate special events or provide a day away from clingy parole officers.

Like any redhead, Jennifer Davis had intimate knowledge of the painful burns that would result when she tried to imbue her fair complexion with a sultry summer glow. Determined to help her fellow Texans achieve a sun-kissed hue without the damaging effects of tanning, Jennifer opened a mobile airbrush-tanning business that has since expanded to multiple salon hubs situated throughout the Dallas metro area.
Using a paraben-free, DHA solution, the salon?s certified airbrush technicians completely envelop frames in a shade tailored to skin tones, leaving a streak-free color that lets patrons avoid the attentions of lovelorn zebras. The tanning solution is applied and dry within 30 minutes, both illuminating bodily hues and covering skin imperfections such as blemishes, cellulite, and stretch marks during its two-week tenure on the skin. The salon also stocks a supply of Norvell products and airbrushing machines, allowing guests to maintain golden skin at home without replacing showerheads with arcade token machines.
