Board-certified Dr. John Russell safely blots out body doodles on any skin type with the FDA-approved YAG Q-switched laser in sessions that last about five minutes. During a free consultation, staffers explain the removal process and employ the Kirby-Desai scale to calculate the number of treatments necessary for complete removal, based on the ink's pigment, depth, hue, and invisible-ink content. The YAG laser shatters pigments into teeny particles so that the body can naturally evacuate them. Topical anesthetic and gusts of cool air from a Zimmer Chiller device diminish the laser's stings, which are akin to a rubber band's snap. Warm towels put clients at ease before employees cap off appointments by bandaging over fading ink and applying ice. After 5–15 sessions, clients flaunt immaculate epidermal terrains, generally free of scarring and barbecue-sauce stains that were mistaken for tattoos.
After an eight-year tenure as an employee in a spa, master aesthetician Danie Hawkins set out to become her own boss. Now at the helm of Flaunt Esthetics, she tackles all skin issues put before her, from acne, to fine lines, to hyper-pigmentation. She also applies daytime and nighttime makeup, and is a master of popular looks including smokey eyes. But it's her custom eyelash extensions that have really put Danie on the map?her work designing custom eye fringe has even earned her the nickname "Queen of Lashes". By combining short and long single lashes with cluster lashes, she's able to create a look that is at once glamorous and natural, adding length and volume that lasts up to four weeks or longer for those who have tape.
At Dermalove Esthetics and Massage, licensed aesthetician and massage therapist Kelly Talmage expertly bestows anti-aging spa treatments and relaxing massages upon her clients.

Further beautification procedures include lash and brow tinting and spider-vein reduction.
Bare Essence Med Spa’s goal is to boost confidence and pamper bodies within brightly colored treatment rooms decorated with flower art and real orchids. In these rooms, aestheticians exfoliate dead skin with microdermabrasion and vitamin-C enzyme peels. They further tend to skin with facials that hydrate or fend off signs of aging or acne. A battery of Image skincare products both protects and fortifies the skin, feeding the dermis a powerful diet of nutrients, vitamins, and tears from teenage pop stars. Technicians can also erase unwanted body hair through laser treatments and help clients slim down with detoxifying body wraps made from three types of seaweed.
House of Élan offers revitalizing body treatments for existing humans and personalized hair-removal options for men and women.

Over the course of six sessions, strand assassins will harness bi-polar radio frequencies and light energies to precisely target unwanted keratin and foil follicular invasions, systematically weakening woolen defenses with each treatment. Elos is purported to be effective in the eradication of lighter-colored hair on skin of most shades, hues, and tartan plaid patterns.
