OpenSided MRI uses a sophisticated technique which creates high resolution images of the body without the use of x-rays. The technique uses a magnet and radio frequency waves, similar to those used in an AM/FM radio. Our system is an open design MRI, which features the advantages of an easily accessible permanent magnet.
The accomplished tattoo artists at Xtreme Ink and Piercing stamp the skin with colorful, custom art and decorate the body with shimmering hoops and studs. Their repertoire of meticulously inked images ranges from whimsical pictures such as a giraffe or sentient ice-cream cone to more iconic visuals, such as a shadowy portrait of John Lennon or a bold emblem of Captain America's shield. The team also applies permanent makeup designed to match skin tone and personal style. Bright-red walls, leather couches, and hardwood floors create a salon-like interior, and 60-inch televisions distract clients wary of needles and getting burned by a flaming yin-yang symbol.
Alexander Digenis, MD, and Brian Thornton, MD, have more in common than their offices at the Kentucky Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery Institute. The two doctors share a wealth of knowledge in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, which enables them to perform advanced aesthetic procedures to enhance the skin, face, breasts, and body. They also share an experienced staff that assists them though these procedures. Chief among this staff is aesthetician Jessica Burnett, whose skincare services include laser hair removal, resurfacing chemical peels, and IPL laser treatments that zap away blemishes and spaceships double-parked outside the clinic.
A hot towel soothingly loosens up pores at the outset of Royal Pampering Day Spa's signature facial treatment, where a mask of massaging cleanser and a toner exfoliates away dead skin cells. Facials like this one take up just a portion of the menu filled with relaxing spa services. Skin care professionals with more than 10 years of experience knead bodies with styles such as deep-pressure, sports, and therapeutic massage as visitors lay atop heated beds in one of seven treatment areas. Staffers also offer packages that include hand-and-foot treatments for girls and moms, as well as makeup and updos for brides-to-be.
Dr. Leesa Richardson understands the complex workings of the body’s one-way valves, the veins. At The Vein Treatment and Aesthetic Center, she draws from extensive training in phlebology to diagnose disorders and treat them using sclerotherapy, laser therapy, and surgical vein stripping. The center also treats other visible skin imperfections with such aesthetic services as dermaplaning, chemical peels, and laser hair-removal treatments. Products from Skinceuticals, Obagi, and GloMinerals aid in pampering skin, fighting signs of aging, and supporting alibis involving the fountain of youth.
Ultimate Vein Care's board-certified technicians employ minimally invasive laser technology to evict unwanted spots from faces and bodies. The treatment, which lasts about 20 minutes, reduces the appearance of brown spots, fine lines, rosacea, and small veins that may interfere with beauty, self-confidence, and the ability to succeed as a fake-moustache model. After conducting a consultation to determine individual needs, the practitioner may apply a topical anesthetic to reduce pain. Clients don safety glasses to prevent eye damage and protect secret superhero identities before the technician glides a chilled laser hand piece across the skin, zeroing in on spots and veins. The session can diminish the unsightly effects of sun damage and aging, leaving guests free to spend the rest of the day working, relaxing, or admiring their fresh upside-down complexions in the reflections of spoons.
