Careful hands at Axiom Wellness and Medical Spa pamper tender skin surfaces with a variety of beauty treatments. Targeted facial waxes rid lips, chins, brows, or third eyes of unwanted follicles, as a specialty hard wax solidifies around hairs before stripping them away. An optional anesthetic keeps Brazilian waxees comfortable. Single-strand synthetic eyelash extensions, applied one by one with an adhesive, bond onto individual eyelashes in a variety of thicknesses and colors, while lightweight mink eyelashes provide a dark sheen to solo strands after a careful application, which can last up to two hours. Both eyelash extensions can last for up to two months, which is exactly how long it takes to wink in slow motion.
The staff at Erased Laser Tattoo Removal performs a singular service: helping remove, partially remove, or fade unwanted ink from clients' bodies. At free consultations, staffers—many with tattoos or experience on the receiving end of laser treatments—walk patients through the procedure and answer any lingering questions. During the 10- to 15-minute sessions, the NaturaLase QS 2J, a Q-switched laser, sends pulses of light into tattoo pigment, which it breaks into smaller particles for later removal by the immune system. To ease pain, the Zimmer Cryo Chiller blasts the skin before, during, and after the procedure with air turned down to -30 degrees. The laser rarely leaves scars in its wake, and personnel provide guests with specific aftercare instructions to ensure none occur. Most professional tattoos require 5 to 10 treatments spaced six to eight weeks apart; homemade tattoos often require fewer and tattoos drawn in Magic Markers require none.
During more than 15 years spent photographing models, athletes, and musicians, Rockstar Tattoo Removal founder Todd Todd often heard his subjects' tattoo-related complaints and ardent longings for ink-free skin. Interest piqued, Todd started to research the tattoo-removal industry, visiting facilities around the country and reading the ancient tattoo-removal secrets printed inside Bazooka gum wrappers. He found most existing tattoo-removal facilities uninviting, and set out to create a skin-restoring destination where social butterflies would be glad to touch down.
A relaxed atmosphere complete with rock and hip-hop music, jovial conversation, and a treatment chair surrounded by velvet ropes give Rockstar Tattoo Removal the spirit of an exclusive club rather than the sickly green aura of tattoo-removal centers set inside medical facilities or garden centers. The Candela Alex TriVantage laser targets tattoos with multiple wavelengths of light, causing even multicolored tattoos to fade, and can also be used to dissolve freckles or age spots on targeted skin surfaces.
Serenity Tattoo Removal houses a team of experienced tattoo undoers that wields the power of a YAG laser to clear away unwanted ink from all skin types. During each session of tattoo analysis and removal, skin sultans will consult with the client before clearing black and red ink from an area of up to 2"x4", great for erasing small roses and inconveniently placed checkerboards. Before beginning, Serenity’s aestheticians can employ the Zimmer skin chiller to cool the skin and reduce discomfort. Like the number of Christmases in a leap year, session length can vary, and most clients require 8–12 sessions for complete removal.
Tamara Black's deft digits knead shoulders with the same dexterity she has used to de-stress the backs of former sports pros. After guests peel their frames from the plush leather couches in the coolly hued waiting room, weary physiques enter a velvet-draped room for 30-minute massage getaways, during which Tamara's nimble fingers knead out stress and tension with techniques reminiscent of Swedish strokes and finish in time for guests to rush home and catch the cliffhanger conclusion of their favorite infomercial series. A Swedish massages cossets bodies with long, deep strokes for an hour or until once-tense limbs transition into a liquid state of relaxed ooze.
For nearly 20 years, the friendly muscle manipulators at Touché Salon & Spa have eased on-edge muscles in a stylish, relaxing environment of polished tile floors and cushy leather chairs. Put the licensed therapists' nimble knuckles to the test with the Touché's signature relaxation massage, good for any level of tension. For 50 minutes, a chief stress destructor will target enemy tension insurgents using firm but gentle hand-to-muscle combat, easing away aches in the deepest trenches and most hidden helipads. You'll depart the premises with your muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet.
