Memphis's premier body-art studio and its resident Piercinator, Eva Brewer, can equip any body with jewelry that's virtually impossible to steal on crowded trains. Make naval gazing far more rewarding with a bellylicious piercing ($45) or imply a punky Spockepticism with an eyebrow blingabator ($40 for one). If you've always wanted a beauty mark, solidify your appearance at Cindy Crawford–look-alike contests with a sparkling Monroe piercing ($50). Usurp the elasticity of corporate Silly Putty with an earlobe stretching ($10) or make all your public speeches silver-tongued with a tongue studding ($60). Once pierced, this Groupon treats you to aftercare, which includes written instructions on how to take care of your new bling, special mouthwash for oral piercings, and a bottle of gentle soap to cleanse new piercings regardless of corporeal location.
Lead by medical director Gregory Laurence, Germantown Aesthetics’s team of trained specialists beautifies clients’ epidermal landscapes during noninvasive and surgical treatments. Germantown Aesthetics welcomes patients into a handsome, historic building raised in 1887 that now combines space-age lasers and medical equipment with the earth-toned décor and meticulous facial-hair grooming of the late 19th century. Within soothing treatment rooms, physician assistants and registered nurses work alongside Dr. Laurence to fill out wrinkles with Botox and Juvéderm, sculpt svelte waistlines with liposuction, and erase unwanted veins from the surface of legs with advanced laser treatments.
When life on the lam plunks you in the middle of an identity comedy worthy of Shakespeare or Voltaire, respond in kind with the proper face and head shaping that will keep your disguise intact. Tame unruly tresses with a trim (starting at $15), or make a pit stop to treat yourself to an express facial ($35) during a particularly tiring shift of delivering plutonium to local captains of industry. Exterminate uninvited body hairs with any of Bombay's regionally specific waxes (starting at $11). Waxing provides a longer-lasting hairlessness than shaving, and when the hair does come back after a few weeks, it's meek, soft, and easily scared back into the follicle with banging pans or the threat of another round of wax.
After you meet one of Bartlett's four experienced dentists, they'll take a peep at your pearlies and consult with you about how to get them looking their healthiest and why Bart Simpson dental tattoos might not be a good idea "right now." After a round of x-rays, you can kick back in a state-of-the-art dental station and relax while the friendly tooth wizards go to work bringing the sparkle back to your mouth-bones, so you can once more strike fear into the hearts of baby carrots.
Whether they watch DVDs in the waiting room, play with a PlayStation or Xbox in the treatment area, or undergo a 20-minute Xtreme Teeth Whitening treatment, clients at Smiles Are Us Dental Group will know that this office is all about what's modern. Dr. Freida Grimes-Moore stays abreast of dental-industry innovations through post-graduate courses. She draws on this knowledge during exams, implant procedures, root canals, veneer applications, and temporomandibular-joint (TMJ) treatments.
At NuBody Concepts of Memphis, three MDs pool their experience to perform advanced cosmetic treatments with virtuosic skill. They’ve used their expertise with Aqualipo—a process that infuses liposuction with water to minimize downtime and discomfort—to train other doctors in the procedure, and appeared on Channel 9's Eyewitness News doing a real surgery. Their other treatments include NaturalFill, which uses the body's natural fats to fill and contour the face, lips, buttocks, or doctoral theses. Though the procedures wield state-of-the art technology, the office itself has a homey vibe: yellow walls, plush couches, and flat-screen TVs keep patients comfortable on visits.
