On the hunt for the fountain of youth? We don’t have directions, but we have discovered Eterna Med Spa, which offers a ton of treatments to combat the signs of aging. SMU grad and Grapevine resident Deborah Durkey recently opened the spa in a renovated cottage on McKinney Avenue in Uptown. The small yet comprehensive spa provides a tranquil and charming environment in the middle of a busy, urban area. Check out all the latest services, including LimeLight PhotoFacials (she’s the first in Dallas to offer them), 3D Rejuvenation (a customized treatment to fight aging, sun damage, and sagging skin), Titan (skin tightening without surgery), laser hair removal, and Juvéderm (the newest derma filler on the market). You can also find various Dallas-based cosmetic and candle lines such as Actifirm, SkinCeuticals, Billy Jealousy, and (one of our faves) Jimmy Belasco soy candles. 3403 McKinney Ave. 214-880-0100.
BathBar Candle Company and Spa
We found this hidden gem in Old Town Lewisville. The newly expanded candle and fragrance company recently moved (from Carrollton) after owner Heather Measel took over the business and added the day spa. Many of the all-natural products used and sold are custom-made on-site by Measel herself. The new sea salt scrubs are a perfect way to prep your skin for the beach. Offered in a variety of fragrances (mixed minutes before application) such as coconut-pineapple, lavender-lime, and honey-oatmeal, this one-of-a-kind treatment will leave you with smooth skin and a radiant glow. Make sure to check out the rest of the unique services and products, such as custom-blend massage oils, candles, and the parafango body wrap. 159 W. Main St., Lewisville. 972-353-2224.
