The highly trained staff at HLC Med harnesses futuristic technology and its own line of products for services that heal, rejuvenate, and beautify. In the guffawing face of father time, technicians roll up their sleeves and unholster their lasers, blasting away acne scarring, rosacea, or hyperpigmentation with the Radiancy SpectraClear system. A chilled-tip laser uproots party-crashing hair from any skin type, and a Q-switched KTP YAG laser sends sun spots packing. Custom chemical peels stimulate cell renewal and collagen production to fill out fine lines, and radio-frequency devices firm up skin and smooth out cellulite. The center also offers services for men, including laser treatments for razor bumps, back-hair removal, and a gentleman's facial that moisturizes faces more effectively than head-butting Poseidon.

Hoping to revive the culture of the neighborhood butcher shop, with its personalized service, attention to detail, and artful products, restaurant-industry veterans Justin Rosberg and Jason Parent took a gamble on their first New Hampshire butcher shop in 2003. Dubbed The Meat House, their store quickly earned a foodie following, spawning additional franchise locations across the country. Today, The Meat House’s many locations stock fine cheeses, prepared side dishes, other gourmet grocery items, and hundreds of wines alongside the usual selection of traditional and exotic meats. Butchers also explain how to prepare each hand-carved cut of meat, sharing recipes, best slicing practices, and cooking techniques for giving pork chops the flavor of justice.
