On one of A Living Canvas Tattoo's walls, a portrait of a raven-haired beauty conveys a simple message: 18 & Up. The handiwork of the staff's skilled tattoo artists, the sign reflects A Living Canvas' commitment to creating striking body art in a safe, clean, and comfortable environment. The team takes steps to conduct tattooing, piercing, and tattoo-removal sessions in the safest way possible, performing all treatments in private rooms with autoclave-sterilized tools and new, presterilized needles. A detailed FAQ lays out the circumstances under which patrons can and can't be decorated.
Tat Laser Removal Clinic, LLC’s team of certified laser technicians operates under the tutelage of Dr. Joel Potasznik, who rotates between the clinic and his positions as chief of surgery at Southeast Methodist Hospital and chief of surgery and staff at Mesquite Community Hospital. Many patients compare the feeling of laser therapy to that of a rubber band snapping the skin, and TAT’s staff eases sensitive skin areas with ice or numbing injections. A fleet of lasers can target unwanted ink as well as such imperfections as acne scars, toenail fungus, and birthmarks coincidentally shaped like one's social-security number. Dr. Potasznik and his team also perform microdermabrasion treatments and body contouring with advanced vacuum therapy.
Elizabeth Cockram, the owner and resident cosmetics artist at Cinderellie, trained at the Texas Institute of Permanent Cosmetics, and she frequently returns to the institute for additional training. Ms. Cockram can apply permanent cosmetics, treat wrinkles, and remove tattoos using the natural Tattoo Vanish method.
Led by licensed aesthetician licensed vocational nurse Cindy Hunt, the laser specialists and aestheticians at Derma-Aesthetic Laser and Electrolysis Center operate under the slogan "reveal the beauty within," and deploy current technology to address a range of cosmetic concerns. Wielding an FDA-approved device, technicians help to diminish the appearance of hair, wrinkles, broken facial capillaries, and spider veins on legs, which, like most fall TV pilots, gradually fade from view over several months. The center also complements its beauty-enhancing treatments such as facial peels and fillers with skincare products that work to smooth and rejuvenate the skin.
After earning the Dean’s Scholarship at the University of Texas Medical School, Joel Potasznik, M.D., joined forces with a team of certified laser technicians to aid clients with tattoo removal and other laser services. A powerful YAG laser breaks up subsurface ink during tattoo-removal sessions, and technicians also harness beams to perform scar reduction, toenail-fungus reduction, and age-spot and pigmentation removal. The techs can aim laser light at spider veins and stretch marks, minimizing their appearance more effectively than a DIY shrink ray made from a saran-wrapped flashlight.
The Clinical Skin Care Center Med Spa currently operates under the medical direction of Dr. David Azouz, a board-certified plastic surgeon with more than 25 years of experience performing cosmetic surgery on the face and body. He and their staff perform cosmetic laser procedures that use radio frequency, light energy, and other technologies to target signs of aging on the face or body, as well as acne, acne scarring, and cellulite. The microdermabrasion treatments gently remove the topmost layer of skin to reveal softer skin, while also softening lines and fight acne.
