As an artist, Josh Wiley's canvas is the human skin. The owner of Modified Skin Tattoos, along with a staff of guest artists, transforms epidermal layers into a living portfolio. Though the artists' styles vary, their work reflects the wants and expectations of their clients, which is carefully communicated during consultations. For fans of fantasy or gaming, they have inked vivid profiles of flaming skulls or of popular superheroes such as Batman. For those who want realistic portraits to commemorate loved ones, they have captured detailed likenesses without having to press a face into piece of tracing paper and wrap it around a bicep.
The artists also renew tattoos with cover-up work that conceals unwanted images, and they use UV ink to create tattoos that are completely invisible until they are exposed to a black light. In addition to tattoo services, Modified Skin Tattoos also adorns bodies with dangly pendants, minimalist studs, and other jewelry that can bedazzle piercings and microdermal anchors.

With more than 30 years of experience eradicating veins, Advanced Laser and Cosmetic Center's expert staff administers quick and precise spider-vein treatments that rejuvenate epidermal surfaces. During sclerotherapy sessions, two CCs of saline solution traverse each client's entire network of veins, treating multiple areas simultaneously rather than tracing out individual veins or hypnotizing blood streams to imbue them with arachnophobia. Each treatment requires less than an hour to permanently diminish unwanted veins, though some patients may require multiple visits. Wintertime treatments help ensure that veins vanish by spring, so patrons can proudly display their unblemished limbs at outdoor cookouts or speed-dating sessions with single bears recently roused from hibernation.

On the cosmic end of the beauty spectrum, FDA-approved lasers banish unappreciated hair from all skin types, and the infrared light of the Titan collagen-stimulating system shines down upon faces, abs, and thighs to help create smooth, supple skin.
