New Black-owned med spa in Dallas' Design District peels away barriers to beauty treatments
A new Design District aesthetics studio focused on diversity and inclusivity wants to make Dallasites look great and feel even better — no matter their skin challenges or previous experience with modern beauty treatments. Mysa Medical & Wellness Spa opened Saturday, August 21 at 2629 N. Stemmons Fwy., Suite 103.
Founded by Cameroon native and registered nurse Ryan Abety, Mysa touts itself as the first Black woman-owned medical spa in Dallas-Fort Worth.
“I created Mysa to be a space where people’s physical, mental, and emotional wellness are prioritized,” Abety says in a news release.
She founded the spa after seeing a need from a previous practice. While working as a nurse injector out of a one-room suite in Uptown Dallas, Abety says, she found herself turning down clients because she couldn’t address all of their concerns; her small space limited the number of services she could offer. So she re-evaluated her environment and spent nearly two years planning and designing the new studio, she says.
Mysa is a Swedish word that means “to do something that is pleasurable," which, Abety says, encompasses what she wants the spa to be for her customers — a place where they can relax and indulge in their beauty and wellness routine.
She intends for it to be a "destination," in fact, that offers a wider range of services than almost any other place in the city, she says. The dizzying menu includes injectable treatments, non-surgical cosmetic treatments, facials, skincare services, massages, body treatments, waxing, nail care, microblading, lash treatments, and IV hydration therapy for both individuals and couples.
"So no matter your age, your skin type or your goals, Mysa will help you achieve your definition of beauty,” Abety says.

In addition, Mysa also sells its own line of vegan beauty and wellness products, in collaboration with fellow Black women-owned brands Brea’s Candles and Nolaskinsentials.
