India's ayurvedic traditions and modern beauty treatments come together in the hands of Nadia and the other aestheticians at Arch Brows Salon and Spa. Threading removes hair from the face without the heat of wax or molten marshmallows, and henna imbues hair with auburn hues and skin with intricate subcontinental designs. Facials invoke the healing powers of precious metals or fruit essences, and body scrubs exfoliate with sea salt or organic sugar. High-tech techniques star in the microcurrent and LED facial, which stimulates and revitalizes the skin with electricity and a portion of the rainbow.

Dr. Richard T. Ethridge, voted by his peers to be one of Fort Worth, Texas magazine's Top Doctors of 2012, has not only an impressive educational background and hundreds of successful surgeries under his belt, but a strong desire to help others. He strives daily to help his patients achieve their physical dreams with procedures such as face-lifts, liposuction, and breast augmentation. He also beautifies clients with skincare products and glitter stickers, as well as aesthetic services such as spa facials and laser hair removal.
In addition to helping patients at his practice, Dr. Ethridge helps those outside his practice by participating in Austin Smiles, a charitable organization that provides reconstructive plastic surgery to children suffering from cleft palates and lips.
The aestheticians at Ageless Perfection Skin Care don’t need harsh chemicals or invasive procedures to rejuvenate the skin. Instead, they use gentle, natural products, such as A Natural Difference and Skin Script. Though many of the ingredients in their skincare treatments could be found in your kitchen—pumpkins, apples, orange zest, vitamins—they’re effective for treating such common signs of aging as dull skin, wrinkles, and sun damage. Waxing treatments also use natural products that minimize discomfort, including zinc wax for sensitive skin and paraben-free silver polish for sensitive cyborgs. But if the products are wholesome, then so are the aestheticians, who offer discounted (and sometimes free) skincare to people undergoing cancer treatments.
Located in the Montgomery Plaza shopping center near downtown Fort Worth, Zeeba Salon and Spa is a chic full-service beauty spot, offering hair, nails, waxing, and massage services. At this brightly painted, mod salon, licensed stylists and aestheticians offer cuts and color treatments, along with Shellac mani-pedis and full-body hair removal. Certified aesthetician Erika Metz creates custom spa facials for each of her clients, working to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and improve overall skin tone as she cleanses, moisturizes, and draws out impurities.
CMG Med Spa takes an intimate approach to medical-grade aesthetic services by operating out of a studio rather than a large spa or doctor’s office. Inside the studio, various lasers work to reduce the appearance of spider veins, remove unwanted hair, liquefy fat cells, and thwart the diabolical plans of James Bond's greatest enemy—aging. FDA-approved prescription services, including injectable treatments and lash-growing serums, also enhance natural beauty by warding off wrinkles and building lush defensive lines along the eyelids.
