Health & Beauty city
Dr. Martin Kassir
8335 Walnut Hill Ln., Vickery Meadow
This is a real-deal dermatologist office that just happens to offer cosmetic procedures. This means that Dr. Kassir and his staff are pros at pinpointing and treating skin-related ailments while also offering patients some pretty intense anti-aging treatments: traditional, extraction-focused facials, microdermabrasion, and DermaFrac (sounds scary, but it’s actually a supper effective). You can expect some downtime after most treatments, but it's kind of worth it considering the results are no joke.
Lake Austin Spa Resort
1705 S. Quinlan Park Rd., Lake Austin
Just 30 minutes outside of downtown on a particularly spectacular bend in the river, Lake Austin is as amazing as day spa as it is an overnight retreat. Either way, you can use all spa facilities, the restaurant (many ingredients come from an on-site organic garden) and participate in daily fitness activities from water yoga in the stunning, barn-enclosed warm pool, paddle boarding, and hikes to river-based workouts). There are more than 100 services on the extensive mind- and body-nourishing spa menu—everything from standard Swedish to Chinese-medical cupping treatments—with specific options for mothers-to-be, couples, and groups. You can either book by service or by time; post-treatment, you can lounge by the series of swimming pools in the large hillside garden.
Pink Pedi Salon
1888 Sylvan Ave, Trinity Groves
This airy, brick-walled nail salon was one of the first in Dallas to go clean, nontoxic, and sustainable. Local fashion designer and nail artist Lucy Dang is dedicated to making every treatment a safer, more luxurious experience for both customer and technician. All the products used—there are effervescent bath bombs, custom-blended aromatherapy oils, and rich shea butters—are made in-house. Get the VIP, which combines a shoulder massage, collagen-boosting treatment, multiple scrubs, and a mud mask, all made specifically for feet: It’s beyond relaxing.
