Back in 1991, Kevin McKinley was in the middle of his last day as a banker, his future career path uncertain. Just before punching out, he found himself in conversation with a customer sporting an array of piercings. The man told Kevin about each of his piercings, where he got them, and what they meant to him. An admirer of free-spirited creativity, Kevin was immediately intrigued by the piercing philosophy.
"It's all about feel," he explains. "With change, there's pain. With pain, there's clarity."
More than three decades after piercing his first client, Kevin helms a team of 30 tattoo artists, piercers, and laser technicians at Body Piercing Unlimited. He calls the team a collective “jack of all trades,” with the ability to craft or alter virtually any tattoo or remove unwanted ink altogether. His studios combine modern inks, needles, and lasers with a vintage atmosphere that displays antique bicycles and wall panels bearing artistic works. The black-and-white checkered floors reflect Kevin's reverence for tradition, harking back, he says, to the East Coast tattoo parlors of the 1970s and their legendary face-offs between Garry Kasparov and a computer.
Drs. Lauren Evans, Jacob Frank, and Kara Reynolds protect the power of sight at Wolf Eye Center. The trio of talented optometrists—who studied ocular disease during their residencies—cares for eyes with everything from standard eye exams to glaucoma treatments. In addition to caring for adult patients, the team of eye professionals also treats little ones, helping correct lazy eyes and outfitting budding athletes with sports goggles.
While the doctors detect disease and calibrate prescriptions, the center’s knowledgeable staff helps clients peruse a selection of frames from the likes of Gucci, Coach, and Vera Wang. Frames are filled with thin, high-index lenses or Transitions lenses, which shift from clear to tinted when exposed to sun or a pageant queen’s sequined evening gown.
The licensed, board-certified doctors and sclerotherapy-certified nurse at Alaska Vein Care vanquish spider veins and enlarged, bulging varicose veins with FDA-approved treatments. Injections of a sclerosing agent seal the interior lining of spider veins, diminishing their appearance by blocking blood flow. Treatments for varicose veins include EVLT treatments to restore normal circulation, micro-phlebectomy procedures to remove looped veins, and sclerotherapy, which closes vein walls.
The HCG Diet is Here and it Works Not all Homeopathic hCG is created equal. We use a broader spectrum Homeopathic hCG 6X,12X,30X,60X plus a homeopathic amino acid complex consisting of (L-Arginine, L-Carnitine, L-Ornithine and L-Tyrosine) in a 3X,6X,12X,30X complex for added support.
The Med Spa’s dual-minded staff combines medical precision with an artist’s eye for aesthetics, personalizing appearances with a wide variety of advanced treatments and noninvasive procedures. Over the course of three laser hair-removal treatments, a certified nurse practitioner clear-cuts follicle forests sprouting from underarms, upper lips, masks of Chester A. Arthur, abs, chins, and bikini lines with the heated laser light of a strand-stunting photothermolysis spotlight. Give epidermal interlopers, including age spots and sun damage, the hot foot with a photofacial. Technicians send pulsing light past resistant outer layers on a mission to stimulate subsurface collagen, waking up new growth that smooths out broken capillaries or fine lines. Clients can also bust deeper lines with 15 units of Botox, injecting new elasticity into faces worn down by years of laughing at jokes, frowning at confusing memos, or recoiling in terror at the poltergeist that’s haunting the oven. Each brow-bolstering treatment lasts 10 minutes, allowing clients to buzz through a momentary cosmetic pit stop on the way toward the rest of their busy days.
