Bottles of pharmacy-grade Rx Systems serums line the shelves of Youthful Image Clinical Skincare, each within an arm’s reach of owner and lead aesthetician Lisa Key. Though her salon calls to mind the stress-free luxury of a spa, Lisa’s Rx products deliver clinical-strength healing for blemishes ranging from acne to age spots. Seven types of facials headline the menu of treatments, including a facial tailored to men’s stubbly mugs and a teen-specific session that flushes away excess oil and diary pages stashed in pores and long forgotten. Chemical peels and crystal-tipped microdermabrasion wands erase surface imperfections such as scars and sun damage, and waxing treatments keep skin free of hair from head to toe.
An airbrush specialist with six years experience, Renee Armstrong reforms skin’s peaked appearance with efficiently-spritzed sunless tanning solutions. Her shop's shelves are stocked with high-quality lotions and oils from brands such as Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Mystic Tan, helping clients achieve or maintain the golden hue normally associated with trips to the beach or Academy Award Halloween costumes.
Hanna Isul Med Spa sooths its guests by enveloping them in an environment that is technologically advanced, yet simplistically serene. The facility is the becalming brainchild of founder and CEO Myong Chong, whose youth-preserving formulas help keep Fort Worth agile and ageless. Groupon guests will receive the med spa’s ultrasonic microdermabrasion, which wields the Skin Master Plus to exfoliate the corneous layer of the epidermis, gently stripping away dead cells, excess sebum, and lazy, lingering toxins that are overdue on rent. Following the treatment, newly metamorphosized med spa moths are treated to a melting of the smile muscles with a soothing face and neck massage.
Facelogic Essential Skincare and Spa has built a skincare empire, spreading dozens of locations across 14 states and developing a popular line of products that include both natural botanical formulas and clinical cosmeceuticals. Part of the reason the spa has been so successful is its signature facial, during which cleansers, steam, and extractions remove impurities, exfoliating tools whisk away expired skin cells, and a facial massage melts pent-up stress and nascent unicorn horns. If wrinkles persist, clients can choose from several smoothing services, including oxygen facials, microdermabrasion, and glycolic peels. Clients supplement their skincare regimens by taking home not only Facelogic products but also high-end elixirs from Peter Thomas Roth, Éminence Organic Skin Care, and MD Skincare.
Some scissors are content with mediocrity, while others are far too sharp.
