"What is it going to be like when you're a grandparent with that ink on your body?" Clients of Blank Slate Laser Tattoo Removal never have to find out. Whether it's the initials of a former lover or a full-scale portrait of a hometown mayor, the technicians examine each tattoo to determine a realistic program to eradicate it. During the removal process, the beam from the Quanta Q-Plus C laser system passes through the skin and breaks up the ink for the body to reabsorb. Though movies have people convinced that being hit by a laser beam may obliterate body parts, in actuality, the laser feels like a snap from a rubber band. This snap is ameliorated by blasts of cold air from the laser system's cooling device. Post-treatment, skin may be red and swollen with minor blistering. Patients should wait six–eight weeks between treatments to allow adequate healing and ink fading.
Looking beautiful shouldn't take all day, which is why Apple Lash Studio offers a menu of services that helps clients cut down on their primping time. Mascara can be nixed from one's makeup routine after synthetic-fiber extensions—available in black and glitter-coated styles—add immediate length and volume to lash lines. The naturally curved, semipermanent lashes never interfere with one's other daily activities, including swimming, showering, and sweating, and only take a trained lash specialist up to two hours to apply, one lash at a time, using sterilized equipment. While at the intimate shop, clients can also have unwanted hair quickly removed from their brows, lower legs, and bikini lines.
