“Give me 45 minutes and I will take off 15 years,” says Midwest Medical Aesthetics' president Kathleen Stegman on the company's website. As a registered nurse with a quarter-century of experience in the beauty industry, she has the knowledge to do just that. Stegman's expertise lies in beauty injections such as Botox and Dysport, which she's been using to tighten faces for more than 17 years. Along with her team of associated physicians, she also harnesses the power of laser energy to help clients remove unwanted hair, shed fat, and erase tattoos of ex-lovers' favorite species of fungus.
For the past 14 years, the needle-wielding professionals at Dragonfly Tattoo Studio have inked skin surfaces in their sanitary workshop. Drawing inspiration from customers' ideas, classic tattoo designs, and recent crop-circle appearances, body branders whip up striking stencils before transferring client-approved images to the skin. Tattoo artisans insert indelible ink into the dermis layer using a multineedled machine, which changes the skin's pigment and permanently modifies the area. Once healed, the skin is branded with a desired image or line of text, such as the name of a close relative or the numbers of a gym-locker combination.

The treatment usually leaves a healthy and radiating glow without the peeling process of a chemical peel. The SkinMedica Illuminize chemical peel, on the other face-hand, can be effective for individuals and chameleons suffering from facial blemishes, acne, superficial lines, sun damage, uneven skin tone, and clingy face-hugger aliens. The chemical peel pairs a newer generation of alpha-hydroxy acids with phytic acid and commonly used peeling agents to maximize skin rejuvenation while ensuring a low level of irritation.
