Connie Pearson of Permetika Cosmetic Specialties, a licensed permanent-makeup artist, draws on her 10 years of experience when lining eyes, shading in brows, and coloring lips. She specializes in filling wispy brows and redefining arches with soft fills, multidimensional brow strokes, and load-bearing keystones. In addition to cosmetics, she completes paramedical procedures for scar revision and areola restoration after mastectomies, citing this as a highlight of her job, "especially when I can help transform a broken woman's spirit and make her feel beautiful again," she says.

After training in Thailand, the licensed aesthetician behind Houston 3D Eyebrows & Beauty brought 3-D permanent makeup to the States. Unlike the traditional hair-stroke technique, 3-D permanent makeup layers color in multiple passes, which culminate in realistic ink strokes that flatter the eyebrows, eyelids, or areolae. In addition to 2-D permanent makeup, staffers also pamper visages with facials, waxing, and body wraps.

"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.
