A rose captioned with an ex-girlfriend's name. A barbed wire band from a teenage Pamela Anderson phase. Garfield throwing rocks at the logo of a rival sports team. While decision-making skills improve with age, tattoos often remain tangible proof of youthful indiscretion. The technicians at Laser My Tat understand that sometimes, ink that seemed like a can't-miss idea looks less rosy with the benefit of hindsight. After an initial consultation, techs draw up a treatment plan and set about diligently erasing tattoos with the help of their Q-switched Nd:YAG laser system. Over the course of a few sessions, the laser's energy breaks down once-permanent ink into small particles that are then removed by the body's natural defenses, eventually leaving skin free from any regrettable marks.
At Wolter Chiropractic, patients receive top-notch chiropractic, massage, rehabilitation, and nutritional care to promote overall health and well-being without relying on surgery, drugs, or wishes. During your initial examination, Wolter Chiropractic's founder and doctor, Dr. Wolter, will review your medical history, feel your framework, and take x-rays of your bones to get a sense of your skeleton. After reviewing his findings, he will devise a treatment plan and proceed with your first adjustment.
Once known simply as CC Spa, CC Medi Spa added a whole new suite of services to its menu when it added a word to its name. To supplement the facials, manicures, and pedicures the spa always offered, its aestheticians are now joined by chiropractors and massage therapists who provide health-boosting bodywork. The dermaplaning that they offer removes all facial hair and may help minimizes fine lines, wrinkles and pre-cancerous skin cells.
The team partitions their 4,000-square-foot space into private rooms, each dedicated to a specific kind of service and ancient Sumerian deity. While one person relaxes in the massage room or sits in the pedicure room's leather throne, others can wait their turn on the lobby's plush taupe couches, bathed in tinted light from the tall windows obscured by pale violet curtains.
Beauty comes in all forms. At Lotus Spa, beauty isn't only reserved for the clients who come in for classic and specialty spa services, including waxing and threading. It is also extended to the exquisite crystal chandeliers, intricately designed copper ceiling tiles and richly colored baroque textiles that decorate the spa.
Soft lighting soothes clients as aestheticians scrub bodies with exfoliating mixtures of sugar and oil or pamper clients with a Lotus Fusion massage—a combination of deep-tissue, hot-stone, and aromatherapy styles. Aestheticians brighten complexions with three kinds of chemical peels designed to melt away layers of dead skin and old Halloween masks absorbed into the skin.
The chiaroscurists at Hilights Salon accentuate hair canvases' natural colors with complementary applications of full or partial highlights. Experienced color specialists coordinate hues with the seasons, toning down tints during winter months, brightening looks for the summer, and painting strands black during tax season. Carefully rendered partial highlights catch eyes with crown-based hints of subtle shading, or all-over highlights brighten lackluster manes for more confident ponytails in the office and more assured cartwheels on boardroom tables.
Amber Charles, the licensed massage therapist behind Naturally Tranquil, draws on seven years of industry experience to bring muscles and minds to a state of peaceful relaxation. Prenatal, deep-tissue, and trigger-point massages are a few of her specialties. Hot stones and aromatherapeutic oils soothe the senses, as do the practice's sage-green walls and soft lighting.
