The Medispa Institute is led by not one, but two professionals who are experts in their fields: medical director Dr. Ban A. Vu and aesthetic director Bich Ngoc Nguyen. Dr. Vu has been practicing cosmetic surgery in the Houston area for more than 20 years and specializes in procedures for the Asian face and body.
The duo helms a team rounded out by highly trained laser technicians who are all members of the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery, including Certified Medical Laser Safety Operator Mai Pham. Pham and her fellow staffers are particularly skilled in the treatment of Asian and ethnic skin and offer services ranging from permanent makeup and facials to blue-light therapy. They can address virtually any skin issue with laser technology, including unwanted hair, veins, or age spots—all within a clean, white-on-white facility.
At Beauty & Beyond Skin Care Center, clients don't need to resort to surgery for a younger look. That's because the professional staff slows the aging process through a spread of non-invasive procedures. The non-surgical facial employs microcurrent technology to zap wrinkles and fine lines, and the microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals to slough away dead skin cells, revealing smooth skin that may cause clients to be mistaken for majestic dolphins. Other services, such as threading and henna tattoos, keep clients looking their best, helping the beautifying hotspot to win awards from Talk of the Town Texas for Excellence in Customer Satisfaction and the U.S. Commerce Association for Facial Skin Care and Treatments.
Champa's Creations Day Spa combines the relaxing arts of hair-, nail-, and skincare under one roof. In addition to shearing overgrown strands, stylists boost shine with house-made conditioning treatments customized to individual hair type, add luminous full or partial highlights, and iron out curly tops with thermal reconditioning treatments. The salon’s nail technicians stay equally busy, primping fingers and toes before decorating cuticles with classic paint jobs, artificial nails, or shellac gel that lasts up to two weeks without chipping or turning hands invisible. Meanwhile, aestheticians man private rooms, where they administer facials that target acne hotspots or collagen treatments designed to spur cellular regeneration. Aside from showcasing outer beauty, the crew also coaxes out internal relaxation with soothing Swedish and aromatherapy massages and indulgent body wraps.

Due to her own struggles with excessive hair growth, Alina Stephanie had gone through it all: waxing, depilatories, trying to mask embarrassing hair with extra makeup. Finally, she discovered laser hair removal and never looked back. She became a hair removal specialist in 1985, established her clinic in 1989, and has been helping people seeking a more effective and clinical means to overcoming their issues ever since.
At Alina Stephanie Day Spa, the trained clinicians help these clients and more. Aside from laser hair removal services, they also offer electrolysis, microdermabrasion, and European facials, which use exfoliations, steam, and customized treatment masks to leave complexions radiant. Clients can also prepare for a big day by releasing stress caused by wedding planning or searching for hidden Christmas presents with calming massage therapy.
