The artists at The Missing Piece Tattoo decorate appendages with permanently inked masterpieces. Artists draw upon their respective portfolios to emblazon emotional statements upon unblemished skin or to cover up tats bearing the names of unrequited loves and lost pet monkeys. Clients seeking personalized embellishments may consult with artists to forge custom-crafted images, and laser removal services erase unwanted tattoos. Skin-painters open single-use needles from sterile packages in front of their clients before work commences, and tools and countertops receive routine chemical sterilization overseen by a registered nurse.
The staff at Louisville Laser and Spa gives a decidedly simple answer when its patients ask the best way to maintain skin: daily care and healthy living. Its services—many of them designed to make skin look younger—only serve to expedite the process. Administered by an advanced nurse practitioner or an aesthetician, the treatments include laser hair removal, laser skin tightening, chemical peels, pigment removal, spider vein removal, tattoo removal, and microdermabrasion. The spa's most popular option, laser hair removal uses beams of light to reduce and remove unwanted hair on the body. In addition to skincare, technicians use Botox to freeze facial muscles so that wrinkles soften and amateur ventriloquists finally can reach the next level. Louisville Laser and Spa also offers professional teeth whitening.

Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.
Guided by Dr. William Philip Werschler, whose aesthetic expertise earned him a spot as judge for Prevention magazine's 2010 Defy-Your-Age Beauty Awards, the staff at Werschler Aesthetics overhauls outer appearances with advanced med-spa treatments. The Clarisonic skin-cleansing system jump-starts each specialty facial with sonic frequencies that, though inaudible to human ears, work to remove deeply embedded oil and dirt, priming skin to absorb pharmaceutical-grade serums from brands such as iS Clinical and SkinMedica. Techs also wield lasers specialized to tackle different maladies, from spider veins to acne, and they work to smooth faces with injectables such as Botox.
The continually educated mouth specialists of Sunshine Dental keep smiles healthy with a tag team of preventative dentistry and modern technology. During the appointment, a licensed dentist scours the mouth for signs of decay, cavities, and lost gummy bears (a $97 value) with an attention to detail normally only exhibited by pickleball referees. X-rays, including four bitewings, an extraoral, and a panoramic (a $234 total value), allow the certified tooth whisperer to inspect cuisine crushers in greater depth in a set of black-and-white snapshots. Take-home whitening treatments evict the yellow from teeth with stain-fighting bleach and a sheriff-delivered court order. Mouths that return dutifully to the dental office every six months for a checkup receive additional treatments for free.
