Neither needles nor knives can be found at Body Contour Spa, where noninvasive laser liposuction transforms wobbly bits into trim and svelte physiques. Ultrasonic waves from the spa’s LipoLaser system permeate the area of the client’s choice—including the tummy, thighs, back, or buttocks—and gradually dissolve fat cells, allowing their contents to move through the body until naturally absorbed. Within three to four sessions, clients may begin to see noticeable whittling of their waists or shrinking of their third arms. Aside from noninvasive liposuction, Body Contour Spa aids in general bodily detox with prepackaged body wraps, which whisk away internal toxins from the body in as little as 45 minutes.
Using vibrant colors to dress human flesh, artists transform people into works of art at ABC Bodyart. A peek into the gallery shows images of people wearing clothes, patterns, and fur where there is none, their skin covered in expertly applied paint, temporary tattoos, and henna. The body-art outlet offers up models to paint during classes and private events and also caters to kids with face-painting packages.

"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.
