Linda Tannos refuses to use anything but Lycon Precision wax when she de-fuzzes clients at Get Waxed. Made from a mélange of beeswax, natural resins, and aromatherapy oils, the pliable compound effectively lassos and "shrink-wraps" follicles to remove hairs without irritation. The licensed aesthetician applies her products on both manly and ladylike fuzz, purging strands from a range of areas, including bikini lines, legs, and upper lips. Linda also dispenses viable before-and-after tips, including preparatory moisturizing regimens and posttreatment methods for avoiding full moons.
Aisha Khalid opened her first women-only salon and spa in 1994 and has since expanded her beautifying services to 10 family-owned locations. The business specializes in haircare, herbal facials, henna tattoos, threading, and body waxing, which, despite its name, is not the creation of a wax statue of Marilyn Monroe, Abe Lincoln, or Abe’s torso on Marilyn’s legs. The salon is open every day of the week, accommodating clients with various schedules, and the staff takes pride in being friendly and maintaining a clean atmosphere.
Affordable Laser & MedSpa's technicians usher in the next generation of aesthetic trends by surfing the crest of beauty technology. At two locations, they draw upon an arsenal of lasers, SkinCeuticals serums, and beauty injectables to help reverse time's effects on the face and to carve bodies into more slender, smoother versions of themselves. Their Candela laser systems, for example, remove unwanted hair from all skin types by penetrating the epidermal surface without damage and heating up the hair root. And that targeted efficiency continues throughout their other treatments, such as LipoDissolve, which uses microinjections to break down localized fat deposits, and microdermabrasion, in which a diamond-tipped wand exfoliates the very outer layer of skin cells to leave faces smoother and more radiant than Don Juan wearing a fluorescent leisure suit.
The team at NuDaya MedSpa & Weight Loss Centers uses high-tech means to improve clients' appearances. A collection of lasers erases wrinkles, spider veins, and patches of body hair, and a device called the Lumicell Touch irons out cellulite lumps with mechanized massage. Even the weight-loss plans incorporate modern methods; lipotropic injections and appetite suppressants help patients slim down so that they can fit into their skinny jeans or form-fitting choir robes.
What started as a beauty shop operating out of Aisha Khalid's home has now, 20 years later, blossomed into 10 full-service, women-only salons. The aestheticians at Aisha's Salon & Spa were some of the first to bring threading to the faces of Houston ladies, whisking away unruly brows, chin fuzz, and emperor-tamarin mustaches with a thin cotton filament. For body depilation, they turn to traditional waxing, and body polishes and facials leave skin rejuvenated and smooth. Stylists trim, straighten, and color tresses, and makeup artists apply finishing touches with traditional or airbrush products.

As we age, our skin becomes duller and more prone to wrinkles, and at a certain point, it stops responding to nonmedical treatments. These laser treatments remove the topmost layers of the skin to stimulate skin cell turnover, which helps regenerate and replace damaged cells as well as stimulate collagen production. This production yields smoother and tighter skin.
