“Give me 45 minutes and I will take off 15 years,” says Midwest Medical Aesthetics' president Kathleen Stegman on the company's website. As a registered nurse with a quarter-century of experience in the beauty industry, she has the knowledge to do just that. Stegman's expertise lies in beauty injections such as Botox and Dysport, which she's been using to tighten faces for more than 17 years. Along with her team of associated physicians, she also harnesses the power of laser energy to help clients remove unwanted hair, shed fat, and erase tattoos of ex-lovers' favorite species of fungus.
If you're not sure which high-quality service best matches your skin condition, one of Quinn's experienced skin aestheticians will help you decide during the assessment. A microdermabrasion treatment utilizes mechanical exfoliation and a Ouija board to gently blast away the skin’s uppermost layer—smoothing skin, improving collagen growth, and undoing love bites from the sun's angry face. The treatment usually leaves a healthy and radiating glow without the peeling process of a chemical peel. The SkinMedica Illuminize chemical peel, on the other face-hand, can be effective for individuals and chameleons suffering from facial blemishes, acne, superficial lines, sun damage, uneven skin tone, and clingy face-hugger aliens. The chemical peel pairs a newer generation of alpha-hydroxy acids with phytic acid and commonly used peeling agents to maximize skin rejuvenation while ensuring a low level of irritation.
For the past 14 years, the needle-wielding professionals at Dragonfly Tattoo Studio have inked skin surfaces in their sanitary workshop. Drawing inspiration from customers' ideas, classic tattoo designs, and recent crop-circle appearances, body branders whip up striking stencils before transferring client-approved images to the skin. Tattoo artisans insert indelible ink into the dermis layer using a multineedled machine, which changes the skin's pigment and permanently modifies the area. Once healed, the skin is branded with a desired image or line of text, such as the name of a close relative or the numbers of a gym-locker combination.

Clients space out to the strains of meditational music during treatments at Midwest Anti-Aging, a place where the experience of each skin service is almost as important as its results. Aestheticians examine the skin’s composition before each facial so they can tailor the treatment regimen to fight signs of aging, dryness, or snowmobile tracks. Chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments whisk away expired skin cells to reveal soft facial surfaces, and body scrubs bring the same exfoliating touch to the torso. Blemishes shrink and creases soften during Lulum Energy treatments, which awaken sleepy skin cells with electrical microcurrents. In addition to melting muscle tension, massages stimulate circulation to make complexions glow. Complimentary touches abound at the center, from oatmeal cookies and bottled water to a towel service that prevents clients from having to dry their skin with the faint breeze from a passing helicopter.
Visiting six bars in a single day usually results in a haggard appearance. But at The Body Bar, you can stop by six bars in anticipation of heading downtown for a seventh. That's because the staff specializes in beauty as its prime intoxicant, administering hair, nail, and other spa services at their respective stations. The Nail Bar gussies up fingers and toes with Minx adhesives or Gelish polish, both of which resist wear and tear for two weeks without the protection of fiberglass thimbles. At the Wellness Bar, massages soothe aches and the heat from an infrared sauna helps induce detoxifying sweat. Seasoned technicians strip away unwanted hair at the BeBare Bare, whereas the Blowout Bar’s stylists work with the hair you have, crafting quick new 'dos with washing and blow-drying. You can finish primping for a night on the town with a custom airbrush tan at the Bronze Bar, or head to the Beauty Bar for a makeup application, teeth-whitening treatment, or eyebrow and lash tint.
