If you’re a Dallas local and have never heard the name Alexis Badami, don’t feel bad. Alexis is low-key, flying under the radar, you could say she’s the best-hidden secret in the city. If it weren’t for a mutual client and reader (Hi, Morgan!) our paths may have never crossed, and I would have gone through life not knowing what I had missed!
Centrally located in Preston Center, her esthetics studio is in the mid-century modern Westchester building. The building its self is just… cool. The elevators are retro with original buttons and dials, and the third floor where Alexis is located has marble walls. Behind those walls, you’ll find a bright, modern esthetics studio where magical things happen.
Don’t expect your typical experience with Alexis. I mean talk about a breath of fresh air in the city! She’s the Greek hippie chick who somehow landed in Dallas, a city where consumerism is game. With her warming welcome and killer sense of humor you’ll feel like you’re in her home, not her studio, catching up with an old friend. Laughter aside, with 19 years of experience she’s more than qualified to help you achieve your skin goals. That said, this girl stays booked so plan your facial dates in advance. She’s worth the wait!
I’ve visited Alexis twice and my skin has glowed like no other after each treatment. She’s a master of manipulating product with her arsenal of skin-tools. Each facial is customized to your skin’s needs, using any combination of microdermabrasion, LED, microcurrent, oxygen, ultrasound, FSD phototherapy, radio frequency, microneedling, galvanic and high frequency. And, she keeps interesting products in rotation, switching it up frequently. If you were to visit Alexis now you may receive a facial using a combination of Rhonda Allison and NIOD. In the past, you may have experienced May Lindstrom, SkinScript, or Biologique Recherche. Really, she keeps it interesting.
The below post-facial selfie was a combination of Rhonda Allison, microdermabrasion, LED, oxygen, and high frequency. I felt pretty freakin’ flawless after, I mean look at that glow?! LED facials are easily becoming my favorite modality. Obsessed.
FYI: Facials with Alexis are $195, completely customized to your skin’s needs using any number of high-tech technologies. Parking is available in the garage next to the Westchester building in Preston Center. Check out booking information here.
