Led by Dr. Grace Kwon Hong, SkinRenew Laser Medical Center’s physician-only team unearths youthful countenances and helps to maintain overall skin strength. During the microdermabrasion treatment, a physician deftly manipulates a handheld tool that directs minute aluminum-oxide crystals across the epidermis, gently exfoliating away dead cells to reveal the more even complexion and healthier skin that’s been biding its time in the dermis ever since Guiding Light went off the air.
Thanks to a team of versatile stylists, it’s not uncommon for Salon Karisma’s haircuts and treatments to end with strikingly different results—one woman may leave with a playful, modern bob, while another may strut out the salon’s door with streaks of highlights that catch sunlight as she walks. Though diverse, many of these cuts and styles begin with a sudsy shampoo and a consultation that gets clients involved in the creative process. When determining the right cut or color for you, stylists carefully consider aspects such as your facial features and personal style. If the occasion calls for it, they can add curl with perms, length with hair extensions, and volume with stereo barrettes. Their concern for style doesn’t stop at the scalp; the salon’s ear-piercing services give clients the option to adorn their lobes with sparkling studs or flashbulbs with which to stun celebrities before kidnapping them and assuming their identity.

The bamboo furniture and tribal drums inside Earthbound Tattoo Studio telegraph the studio’s specialty in traditional and modern Polynesian-flavored tattoos. This aesthetic may come from artist Noel's travels through Hawaii and New Zealand—or maybe the team just has a head for the geometric curlicues and bold black lines that represent that style. Either way, their creative minds swirl not only with island flowers, bands, and patterns, but also the need to custom design each tattoo that falls from their professional, sterilized equipment.
