NewSkin Tattoo Removal's specialists clear away tattoos of all kinds, ranging from complex pieces that cover the entire back to cruder designs and those temporary tattoos that won't wash off. Their implement of choice is the Q-switched Nd: Yag, a laser designed specifically for tattoo removal. Its beams break down the structure of ink particles so that the body can flush them away. In addition to full tattoo removal, patrons can opt to lighten up a tattoo so that it can be covered by another, or to remove only a portion of a tattoo.
Rejuvaderm’s expert staff of licensed aestheticians promotes pulchritude with a range of skin-enhancing services. The glycolic peel utilizes a safe chemical solution that, when applied, causes the face’s dead skin cells to slough away ($125). Eradicating these dead skin cells will smooth out the skin’s texture, reduce wrinkles, and improve its overall appearance, resulting in a radiating glow without the hassle of training lightning bugs to follow you around in a constant swarm. The Visia complexion analysis ($75) is a computer-calculated skin scrutinization that plots results as a visual diagram, enabling each person's pelt to compare itself to thousands of others of the same age and skin type. The data can then be used to help plan and monitor a proper anti-aging treatment, helping patients gird themselves against the ravages of Father Time and his magical face-smooshing ray gun.
