The accomplished tattoo artists at Xtreme Ink and Piercing stamp the skin with colorful, custom art and decorate the body with shimmering hoops and studs. Their repertoire of meticulously inked images ranges from whimsical pictures such as a giraffe or sentient ice-cream cone to more iconic visuals, such as a shadowy portrait of John Lennon or a bold emblem of Captain America's shield. The team also applies permanent makeup designed to match skin tone and personal style. Bright-red walls, leather couches, and hardwood floors create a salon-like interior, and 60-inch televisions distract clients wary of needles and getting burned by a flaming yin-yang symbol.
OpenSided MRI uses a sophisticated technique which creates high resolution images of the body without the use of x-rays. The technique uses a magnet and radio frequency waves, similar to those used in an AM/FM radio. Our system is an open design MRI, which features the advantages of an easily accessible permanent magnet.
After enduring a year of unemployment, Mark Allen faced fear and uncertainty. He walked away from a car crash as a teenager, but on reaching his 30s, the accident's effects—chronic headaches, plus a shoulder problem—continued intensifying to the point where he could no longer work. Unsure of what to do, he visited a chiropractor, and, in a few weeks, his injuries had diminished. Convinced that chiropractic treatments had changed his life, Mark enrolled at Logan College of Chiropractic, graduated with honors in 1986, and opened Plus Care Chiropractic & Wellness Center soon after.
Today, Doctor of Chiropractic Allen and his partner, Dr. April Simmons, work with a team of massage therapists to free patients of musculoskeletal maladies while also educating them on whole-body well-being. At each client's first appointment, the physicians conduct an in-depth consultation covering present and past health concerns, followed by a physical examination including a battery of tests. After analyzing the results, Plus Care's team recommends integrated-care regimens, which may include chiropractic adjustments using equipment such as a Thompson table. Further treatments can range from massage and acupuncture to guidance on how to infuse everyday meals with helium.
A hot towel soothingly loosens up pores at the outset of Royal Pampering Day Spa's signature facial treatment, where a mask of massaging cleanser and a toner exfoliates away dead skin cells. Facials like this one take up just a portion of the menu filled with relaxing spa services. Skin care professionals with more than 10 years of experience knead bodies with styles such as deep-pressure, sports, and therapeutic massage as visitors lay atop heated beds in one of seven treatment areas. Staffers also offer packages that include hand-and-foot treatments for girls and moms, as well as makeup and updos for brides-to-be.
Alexander Digenis, MD, and Brian Thornton, MD, have more in common than their offices at the Kentucky Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery Institute. The two doctors share a wealth of knowledge in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, which enables them to perform advanced aesthetic procedures to enhance the skin, face, breasts, and body. They also share an experienced staff that assists them though these procedures. Chief among this staff is aesthetician Jessica Burnett, whose skincare services include laser hair removal, resurfacing chemical peels, and IPL laser treatments that zap away blemishes and spaceships double-parked outside the clinic.
Dr. Brad Cummins leads his team of clinicians with more than 17 years of clinical experience. In addition to laser skin treatments that remove hair and smoothen skin, the staff also fits bodies to slimmer iterations with customized weight-loss plans, as well as body sculpting and cellulite treatments. Dr. Cummins demonstrates his care and responsibility for patients by personally performing or overseeing each treatment.
