After a few decades on the fridge, some “works of art” just stop making an impression. The same can be said for tattoos on bodies, although their removal requires some expert help. The trained technicians at Elkhart Tattoo Removal have spent years learning how to remove unwanted ink with minimal pain and energy, investing in two new methods that can often remove all traces of a tattoo in as little as three sessions. The first method employs a hypersaline solution to incite a process of osmosis, drawing pigment out of the body. Alternatively, the magnetic-halogen system sends focused halogen light into the pigments, bringing them to the attention of the body’s immune system to be processed out via the lymph nodes. Both of these all-natural methods are gentler on the skin than traditional laser treatments, ensuring that the underlying skin will be presentable without retattooing it with an Ivy League diploma.

At Finesse Hair Salon, hairstylists strive to make a connection with their customers—involving them in a conversation about their taste and daily routine rather than dictating the course of the appointment. This emphasis on client input helps ensure haircare decisions are well considered by both customers and stylists, who then know they are matching the expectations of the person in the chair as they cut, color, or perm hair.
