Since 1990, So Natural Permanent Cosmetics has been embellishing eyebrows, lips, and peepers with permanent makeup, thickening eye fringe with Xtreme lash extensions, and misting on airbrush makeup. The salon’s certified permanent-cosmetics professionals amplify lids with indelible eyeliner, ruby-ify lips, and restore brows that have vanished after years of tweezing or hair-singeing experiments with baking soda and vinegar. The expertly applied enhancements, which take about an hour to apply, render lipstick and eyeliner as obsolete as an Esperanto-speaking lamplighter and last for years, with minimal touchups sometimes required after a few years.
Founder Todd Beckman opened the first Tan Company location, then called The St. Louis Tan Company, in 1994 with a pair of average-size sun retreats. After perfecting a superstore concept with multiple levels of tanning beds and an intrepid-reporter alter ego, Beckman's bronzing business now spans 53 locations in 8 states, including 39 locations in the St. Louis area. Todd ensures each salon keeps the same high standards that won the 2010 award for Best Tanning in St. Louis from CityVoter.
A knowledgeable staff maintains each bright, highly sanitized environment and stocks shelves with Australian Gold, Swedish Beauty, and Designer Skin tanning products. The Tan Company also fashions UV-free tans with Mystic Tan standup booths that evenly spritz bodies with a paraben-free DHA solution infused with aloe vera.
For more than 20 years, Dr. Sean P. Mulqueeny has honed his skills as an optometrist even while leading clinical research as the director of the Dry Eye Institute of St. Louis. Together with a group of talented doctors, Dr. Mulqueeny goes above and beyond simple eyewear fitting, treating every aspect of ocular health.
Specializing in the treatment of dry eye, the team also looks for signs of cataracts, glaucoma, or macular degeneration. For patients looking to break free from their glasses, Mulqueeny Eye Centers offers multiple types of vision correction such as LASIK, PRK, NearVision CK, and refractive lens implants.
When people think of you, the first thing that comes to mind is most likely your face, closely followed by your puggle, then by a really weird commercial they saw on Monday-night football. Make your mug memorably shiny-fresh and give your designer lapdog a run for its kibble with today's skin-restoring deal. For $30, you'll get a rejuvenating microdermabrasion treatment at First Impressions Skin Care, a $65 value. While egghead scientists maintain that microdermabrasion is a purely physical process where layers of dead skin are removed by gentle exfoliation, the pure of heart (and soon to be pure of face) know that there is a greater force at work.
Medical director Richard Bligh and his licensed staff at Advanced Laser Clinic subscribe to the idea that there is a correct tool for every job—even cosmetic ones. For starters, they have several lasers at their disposal, including the ProLipo Plus for body contouring, the LightSheer for laser hair removal, and the ClearScan for spider-vein removal. Underscoring a commitment to all realms of aesthetic concern, the staff also offers non-laser yet equally noninvasive services that range from facials to Botox injections. No matter which treatment patients choose, it’s preceded by a thorough consultation. Technicians use state-of-the-art before photos to analyze a patient's treatment plan and set realistic expectations. Once treatments are complete, patients can see their end result with before-and-after photos.
