Dr. Biggers and the skilled crew of licensed aestheticians at DaVinci Laser Centers provide therapeutic skin and body treatments in a warm and attentive atmosphere. The Accent XL cellulite-removal machine uses radio frequencies to heat the skin's inner layer to stimulate new collagen formation and restore firmness to even the dimpliest dermis. The 45-minute treatment is a noninvasive, effective, and long-lasting way to expunge toxins and slim away years worth of cottage-cheese deposits. Many clients compare the Accent XL treatment to a warm massage, while some see a resemblance to a young Tony Danza, and with no downtime, customers will be on their way, right away. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
Working out of Hightower Salons, stylist and color specialist Cassie Fuller refurbishes coifs with new cuts and a range of hair treatments. Haircuts and styling aside, her services include full foil highlights, single-process color, frizz-taming keratin treatments, and hair extensions.
The staff at Darque Tan learned the science of tanning through Smart Tan certification, which they rely on to design efficient, safe regimes for each client's skin type. Five levels of PCTan beds and booths can bronze skin with as few as 12 minutes of UV exposure while enveloping skin in cooling mist. Automated airbrush tanning in VersaSpa or Mystic Tan booths create even, natural-looking color that masks scars and stretch marks. Darque Tan's pursuit of convenience is further exemplified with business hours that span seven days a week, a minimum of 20 beds per location, and rec rooms where kids can read and watch TV. A crew of professional cleaners details each of the facilities according to a rigorous 50-point inspection and tips gleaned from reading Mr. Clean's LiveJournal.
At locations in Colleyville and Watauga, Universal Threading Salon & Spa's technicians twist lengths of cotton thread to pull out unwanted facial hair from the root. Threading isn't the only beauty technique borrowed from ancient Eastern traditions: they decorate visitors' hands with the intricate, lacy henna designs known as mehndi. Along with dressing up arms, they relax hands by rendering stress-melting massages or slowly easing your grip off the jackhammer. Microdermabrasion and Dermalogica facials further underscore the spa's dedication to smooth, glowing skin, which can complement the application of lash extensions or permanent makeup.
Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Sina Aboutalebi assuages skin woes for patients of all ages, reducing the appearance of acne among teens, wrinkles among adults, and frown lines among frowning line-drawings of adults. Botox is a purified protein that, along with a Kenny G mixtape, relaxes the muscles responsible for the formation of facial crinkling. Quick, nonsurgical injections of Botox can reduce the appearance of age-defining lines around the mouth, eyes, or camping on the forehead (a $13/unit value, number of units used varies depending on severity), and results can last up to six months or until being sworn in as president of the United States.
Airbrush units sibilantly hiss and UV lights hum gently. Patrons, including several former pageant winners, wander among a range of beds, which dispatch bronzing beams to standing or horizontal guests. The electrically hued units have names like ETS Velocity and Sportarredo Extasy, all of them resembling something from a science-fiction film or a supercomputer’s yearbook. Xotic provides protective eyewear, and a range of beds in different levels allows patrons to customize their coloration. Specialists consult in private rooms, helping select the correct shade of spray-tan solution, which dries instantly and is almost completely odorless.:m]]
