THE NATION'S LARGEST reseller of Botox and filler has opened a location in Rice Village. San Francisco-based SkinSpirit opened its first Houston spa at 2501 Times Blvd. last week, when 150 pretty people filed in to the 2,400-square-foot space for a Champagne toast and to sample the services.


SkinSpirit feels more like a spa than a medical facility, offering facials along with injectables and laser treatments, all supervised by plastic surgeon Dean Vistnes. For the Covid-wary, the spa is following health and hygiene protocols by employing measures such as health screenings, social distancing, added safety equipment and heightened sanitation.

"Houstonians pride themselves on health and wellness, and our goal is to create a destination where anyone can feel their best with the help of our comprehensive services," said CEO and co-founder Lynn Heublin, who started her career in the tech field in the '90s, working with start-ups and video game companies. She founded SkinSpirit with Vistnes in 2003. She prides herself on the company's ability to merge science, technology and wellness techniques to help their clients feel their best.

AN INTERVIEW WITH Patty Dominguez, VP of Architecture & Design Sales at Cosentino North America

How did you adjust and overcome obstacles? How did you reset? I believe at Cosentino our biggest challenge was ensuring that we were able to keep the balance between the safety and health of our employees as the main priority and finding a way to continue to operate the daily business worldwide. Similar to other companies we adapted to the virtual world as a way of living and to continue doing business. Since we are a company where our greatest value is personal relationships virtual meetings and visits were very important. It was difficult to adapt at first but we found ways to make this successful.
