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.
At the helm of the Sheen Vein Institute stands board-certified physician Dr. Vidal Sheen, a specialist in non-surgical varicose vanquishing. Affected hipsticks first undergo an initial consultation and mapping, where the dermal doc will evaluate the patient's medical history in order to cater treatments to each individual case. Dr. Sheen then coaxes arachnoid veins from their not-so-secret hiding spots using sclerotherapy—an FDA-approved treatment that breaks up offending veins using a safe, injectable solution and a sensitive yet firm text message. Visually or ultrasonically guided, the liquid or foam injections are virtually pain-free and patients suffer no downtime, allowing lives to resume and workplace kick-line competitions to commence as planned. The office’s protocol suggests patients receive three check-ups within the first year of the injections, making certain gams stay glamorous and healthy for as long as possible.

Some locations boast UV-free tanning options in Mystic Tan booths or airbrush spray-tanning stations that darken hides with Norvell solutions. They also book red-light therapy sessions, which are designed to fade stretch marks and reduce fine lines formed from trying to win staring contests with the sun.
