Dr. Mike Towey uses five lasers to permeate the skin, erasing tattoo ink of all colors. A board-certified physician and Minnesota native, he strives to make these sessions as comfortable as possible by applying numbing creams to alleviate any pain or anxiety. Inside the shop, a space awash in vibrant Caribbean colors, Dr. Towey takes 7–9 sessions to send tattoos into the ether, with the body expelling the broken-up ink through natural processes.
Vein Associates' master vein vanisher Dr. Robert Reese is a board-certified vascular surgeon. His skilled staff of capillary experts is on hand to help rid lovely legs of unsightly skin spindles. Visits begin with a professional consultation, during which a highly-trained staff member examines the area and recommends the number and type of treatments needed to fully alleviate symptoms, while also answering questions and taking note of acquired spidey-sense superpowers. Unlike some treatments that drive away spider veins by unleashing hordes of larger, hungrier spiders into the bloodstream, Vein Associates uses state-of-the-art sclerotherapy, a safe treatment involving the injection of a sclerosing solution directly into vessels to shrink veins and re-route blood flow to healthier areas. Although the initial reaction may cause slight cramping and discomfort for a few minutes, the solution will eventually transform the vein into scar tissue, which will then fade away over time.

Cosmetic concerns fade with simple IPL facials, Botox injections, liposuction, and breast augmentation procedures. For injured hands, certified therapist Joan Collins acts on more than two decades of experience with procedures that aim to quell carpal tunnel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, or a thumb war injury.
With an advanced degree in orthodontics and TMJ treatment in dentistry from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry under her belt, Dr. Delia Dall' Arancio and Dr. Regina Blevins adjust smiles until they project even more smile. The initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and strategizing about a dental regimen, will set the course for teeth calibrators designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into alignment. Patients are encouraged to ask questions about their particular treatment, including how much peanut butter will be involved. For the toothy task of fang modification, you get $1,000 toward any traditional full set of braces priced at $5,700 or more or $1,000 toward any individualized Invisalign treatment priced at $6,500 or more.
