Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Cory Lawler and the experienced staff at Lawler Centre Cosmetic Surgery revitalize visages with passion and advanced products from the likes of SkinCeuticals and Physician's Choice. During a preliminary consultation, dermal-care experts analyze skinscapes to formulate customized cleansing and home-treatment regimens. Express facials speedily delve into clogged pores to uproot grime, sweep away dull cells, and slather surfaces in custom-blended masks before sending them back to the front lines of human communication. Alternately, deep cleansing sets off the organic facial, after which a purifying steam bath and potent exfoliation promote healthy complexions. Gentle aesthetician hands massage foreheads and cheeks, encouraging the circulation of oxygen-rich blood to delicate tissues and gold doubloons to rich oxygen molecules.

Today, staff wield Palomar and NaturaLase QS cosmetic laser systems to foil follicles, even out skin tone, and erase tattoos.

Stigma Tattoo Bar compiles a trifecta of signifiers of lighthearted vice in its combination tattoo and piercing parlor, bar, and pole-dancing studio. Red vinyl couches line brick walls, and poles reach from floor to ceiling for classes scheduled along with lap-dance and burlesque lessons.

With more than 25,000 laser treatments under its belt, the certified staff of Breeze Laser Center wields modern technology to soothe and improve skin. Omnilux treatments focus nonheating LED lights on acne-afflicted faces for 16–20 minutes per session to produce clearer skin with little discomfort. Like a timid sea monkey, fresh skin emerges gradually, typically after four sessions. Fight off hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, blackheads, or the advancing armies of face gophers with a Silk facial peel. The peel, lasting 30–45 minutes, exfoliates epidermises, then a topical serum soothes freshly-uncovered layers and eliminates the need for downtime. Prior to each treatment, Breeze's benevolent skin-sorcerers will meet with clients for a complimentary consultation, answering any questions they may have, and teaching soothing strokes that calm visages nervous about adopting a new look.
