Hey, Gorgeous! Nation’s Number-One Provider of Botox Opens in Rice Village

A demo room at SkinSprit's grand opening on Sept. 30

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.

AS WE PRODUCE our second annual “Cool 100” list, we’re reminded of our thoughts as we debuted this feature last year. We acknowledged that deciding who and what is cool is not only a moving target but also entirely subjective. And that attempting to “rank” the coolest people in Houston is a fool’s errand, one that will leave us immediately open to criticism. “You think she is cooler than him? You included this person?! You left off that one!?"
