Every pair of eyes is unique. That's the view at Blink Lash Boutique, where owners Janelle Koch and Jen Pearson lead a skilled staff in providing custom eyelash extensions for their guests.

The strands themselves are available in a variety of styles and thicknesses to create looks from subtle to dramatic. No matter what the desired outcome, the team places client safety and comfort first—Jen and Janelle are both professional aestheticians, and all of their fellow lash stylists undergo rigorous training to ensure their work is suitably flirtatious.

Technology enables a fresh start at inkoff.me, transforming the skin into a blank canvas once again. Dr. Eric Zacharias—a board-certified physician—and his staff of nurse practitioners and nurses address a wide range of cosmetic concerns by utilizing the rejuvenating powers of cosmetic lasers, such as a Q-switched Nd:YAG system. These lasers can dramatically transform patients’ appearances by fading and erasing unwanted tattoos, zapping unsightly stubble, or even restoring a youthful vigor to the skin’s tone and texture.
The staff at inkoff.me truly believes in its mission to give patients a fresh start. In addition to donating a portion of its profits to support House of Acts—a home dedicated to aiding at-risk youth—the center also gives back to the community by providing tattoo-removal services for individuals hoping to leave behind gang culture and begin living a new life.
Aesthetician Ericka opened CLEAN by Siren Lyric Muse to share her philosophies about health and beauty with others. "Our lives are continuously being run by our careers," she observes on her website, and "it is important that we take the time to balance ourselves." Given this, it's not surprising that skin health is one of Ericka's top values, and the treatments she offers at CLEAN reflect this priority.
Skin treatments rely both on healthy vitamins and glycolic acid. Mechanical treatments such as microdermabrasion and microcurrent therapy help skin look younger. Skincare doesn't stop at the neck, however; services at the spa also include back and hand "facials." Ericka even curates spa packages, bundling extras such as champagne and lunch with sauna visits and paraffin foot soaks.
