Star Nails' aestheticians have been pampering locals inside their full-service salon and spa for a decade. Their mani-pedis come with hot-towel treatments and an option for gel color polish from Shellac or OPI. When they're not beautifying digits, they're revivifying complexions during facial treatments, alleviating stress with hot-stone massages, and preempting mascara and dry-erase markers with permanent-makeup applications.
At Another World Day Spa, a cast of beauty professionals and massage therapists collaborate to keep clients looking and feeling their very best. A slew of treatments for the face and body cleanse, rejuvenate, and soften skin to stage off everything from wrinkles and fine lines to acne and dry skin. Once renewed, skin can opt for further smoothing with waxing treatments for the brows, bikini area, and limbs. Licensed massage therapists tend to below-the-surface needs with half a dozen massage treatments, including Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone sessions, as well 15 minutes of Fix It therapy, designed to quickly lessen pain or repair broken internal clocks.
The Trinity Mobile Spa specialists take their wax, bottles of nail polish, and talented hands on the road. They travel to a client’s place of work, home, or vacationing neighbor’s home to dispense beauty services that include European facials, mani-pedis, and aromatherapy massages. They also package together a number of services for spa parties to celebrate an impending marriage, baby, or birthday.
As its name suggests, Facelogic Spa prioritizes the primping of the face. Its aestheticians perform more than a dozen facials, including services that use only organic products and treatments tailored to acne, aging, and other common concerns. Their more intensive skincare treatments include chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermaplaning. Every option is tailored to individual skin type and uses premium products, such as Éminence Organic Skin Care and Image Skin Care. The spa also offers a variety of relaxation and beautifying treatments, from massage therapy to airbrush tanning or waxing.
The spa’s comprehensive menu and penchant for service have made it a popular choice, and today it has locations in Canada, 11 US states, and one drifting iceberg.
Apothecaries predate modern chemistry and pharmacology by hundreds of years, tracing their tradition of fashioning medicinal compounds from natural ingredients to Baghdad in the 8th century and Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. These skilled practitioners developed proven techniques to heal weary patients with organic balms and soothe hoards of barbarian Gauls with aromatic oils. Located near Lake Ray Hubbard, Affinity Salon & Spa mines these ancient techniques in its own apothecary, custom-making products and reinforcing their mission to guarantee each client "quality services with a personal touch." Winners of a 2010 Talk of the Town award, the staffers dote on every guest with spa and salon services that integrate oils, herbs, and teas to foster a relaxing, organic experience.
Rockwall Aesthetic Center's owner, Jan Blaha, pulls off a paradox at her clinic. While she and her staff work to keep their laser and beauty technologies up to date, at the same time they maintain the tranquil atmosphere of a traditional spa. This peaceful ambiance can be attributed, in part, to the way each of the trained medical aestheticians use a soft hand and subtle touch to beautify their clients. They also personalize each treatment using information from a complimentary pre-service consultation. Dermaplaning, chemical peels, microdermabrasions, and hydrofacials all help to restore youthful glows, while lasers are used for anything from removing hair and reducing fine lines to cutting away uncomfortable, shrunken sweaters.
