Hair Club's EXT extreme hair therapy program revitalizes male and female manes through a combination of thickening agents and re-growth formulas applied in the shower and through nutritional supplements and in-house treatments administered at Hair Club centers. Hair Club claims the majority of its program's users are able to stop or slow hair loss, and 35% significantly reforest their head helmets. Preface your visit to the club where everyone knows your hair's name using three in-shower cleansers and conditioners to buff up existing hair and inspire thin, fine strands to stand up for themselves. One in-house treatment is administered to your noggin and is accompanied by a video microscope assessment. Hair-helping dietary supplements mix vitamins and herbs in several delicious Flintstone flavors, while an FDA-approved minoxidil solution applied to the head refertilizes fallow scalp-fields. Customers can purchase two Groupons for two consecutive months of treatment; follicle scouts can usually spot thicker hair within 4–6 months.
A Center for Aesthetic Surgery's Dr. Stephen Scully helms a team of technicians who refurbish visages with 30-minute microdermabrasion sessions. During the noninvasive treatment, a technician smoothes a wand across the skin to blast away dead skin cells with aluminum-oxide crystals. The gentle resurfacing gives weary faces a new lease on life by eliminating acne, fine lines, and blemishes and sloughing off sequins from last year's masquerade ball. Boasting bolstered collagen and elastin production, skin leaves the treatment looking softer, smoother, and more youthful. With little to no downtime needed, patients can immediately return to their normal day-to-day activities, relishing in passersby exclaiming, "Look at that infant doing its own grocery shopping!"

The chefs at Zen Chinese Bistro infuse their extensive menu with authentic flavors and culinary techniques, as well as modern twists inspired by their customers’ dietary restrictions and concerns. They stir-fry bites of jumbo shrimp and normal-sized pork with either traditional udon noodles or gluten-free, organic buckwheat noodles. Though many of their entrees showcase spicy sauces slathered atop morsels of chicken and beef, the chefs pay equal attention to vegetarian options by turning the spotlight on ingredients such as Szechuan string beans and bean curd.
The ink artists of this tattoo parlor draw upon different techniques and backgrounds to draw upon their customers. Tattoo artist and bass player Ryan Fleming specializes in traditional tattooing that draws upon spooky images. Taking a different visual tack, Jennifer Moore finds that her skills as a spiritual healer flow into her tattooing and take shape as beautiful birds of paradise or entangled flowers. But all the staff artists have one thing in common—they use their talents to give their clients truly original artwork that won't run onto anyone else's body.
Skin Deep wields an arsenal of high-tech exterior enhancers to solve an array of aesthetic conundrums. Laser hair reduction quickly eliminates unwanted down from fur-festooned body parts with the help of a Lumenis LightSheer Duet machine. The procedure starts with a thorough cleaning of the relevant area to remove dirt and stubborn body barnacles, after which the laser takes aim at the offending follicles, vaporizing the carbon particles in hair-growing glands while leaving surrounding cells untouched. Because the laser acts selectively, targeting only active hair follicles, there is very little skin irritation and no need for recovery time, unlike hair removal conducted via lawn mower. The treatment is effective for darker skin types that may be ineligible for other types of laser therapy. Optimal efficacy is usually reached after five to seven treatments, though this may vary depending on the density of the hair, skin tone, and each follicle’s emotional readiness to accept early retirement. Customers should shave the target area prior to their appointment.
