Dr. Mike Towey uses five lasers to permeate the skin, erasing tattoo ink of all colors. A board-certified physician and Minnesota native, he strives to make these sessions as comfortable as possible by applying numbing creams to alleviate any pain or anxiety. Inside the shop, a space awash in vibrant Caribbean colors, Dr. Towey takes 7?9 sessions to send tattoos into the ether, with the body expelling the broken-up ink through natural processes.
Vein Associates' master vein vanisher Dr. Robert Reese is a board-certified vascular surgeon. His skilled staff of capillary experts is on hand to help rid lovely legs of unsightly skin spindles. Visits begin with a professional consultation, during which a highly-trained staff member examines the area and recommends the number and type of treatments needed to fully alleviate symptoms, while also answering questions and taking note of acquired spidey-sense superpowers. Unlike some treatments that drive away spider veins by unleashing hordes of larger, hungrier spiders into the bloodstream, Vein Associates uses state-of-the-art sclerotherapy, a safe treatment involving the injection of a sclerosing solution directly into vessels to shrink veins and re-route blood flow to healthier areas. Although the initial reaction may cause slight cramping and discomfort for a few minutes, the solution will eventually transform the vein into scar tissue, which will then fade away over time.
Northeast Laser Tattoo Removal is the joint project of a physician and a veteran tattoo artist. Medical director Thomas H. Barrows, MD, has extensive experience using and studying medical lasers. He's lectured on laser-skin interactions throughout the world, and has even helped design the machines. Laser technician Aleksandar Nedich complements the doctor's clinical expertise with 15 years of experience in the tattoo industry. He understands the way ink sits in the skin and can slide off sleeve tattoos as if they were oiled water wings.
Nedich designed the clinic's comfortable space, adorning it with Indonesian folk art and leather couches. He and Dr. Barrows welcome clients in for consultations, presenting information on costs, procedures, and aftercare in a clear and direct manner.

When Crystal Pollard was looking for maternity and baby clothes, she found plenty of onesies but a dearth of stylish skirts or flowing evening dresses. With the help of her husband Brad, a carpenter, the couple outfitted their garage with a changing room and chandelier and created Bellies to Babies. Stocked with the best of Crystal’s garage sale finds, the shop specialized in not only gently used baby clothes but stylish maternity duds for Mom.
Today, in a storefront rather than a garage, customers weave through racks of colorful, stylish, and pint-sized clothes for toddlers as well as soft, frilly sweaters and workout gear. The shop also specializes in dress rental for special occasions, offering over 100 pieces including floor-length, summer, and cocktail dresses.
