You won't find framed mock-ups of stock tattoos hanging from the walls at Heart and Soul Tattoo. That's because the studio's four artists customize every single piece of ink they create. Whether you're in the market for a realistically rendered portrait or a name drawn in elegant script, your appointment will begin with a free consultation that helps the artist chart a path forward. And the appointment doesn't just end with the last line of ink. Customers always receive post-care instructions, as well as a card that details how to clean the tattoo and what to do if it starts moving on its own accord.
At two locations, board-certified dermatologists, assistants, and technicians combine their extensive experience to create a comprehensive hybrid of clinical and cosmetic therapies. In addition to performing biopsies and treating health issues such as eczema and sneezing pores, the staff spruces up exteriors with cosmetic services. Physicians plump up wrinkles with injectables, stave off blemishes with medical acne treatments, and technicians use lasers to tone complexions and reduce hair.
Doctor Jansen Donoghue and his experienced staff pore over mouths, searching for signs of disease or hints of trouble. During dental cleanings, a technician whisks away tartar and plaque before polishing teeth, reducing stains and residue. As part of the dental exam, a trained technician takes a radiographic image of pearly whites, which reveals bone loss, tumors, and cysts more effectively than traditional Etch-A-Sketch imaging. Next, a doctor examines the mouth for oral cancer or gum disease and monitors tusks for any signs of tooth decay. Finally, the doctor checks the sturdiness of restorations such as crowns, fillings, and permanent plastic fangs.
To maximize the mileage from every dental visit, the doctor elucidates proper brushing, flossing, and rinsing for patients. Alternatively, Chamisa Hills’s cosmetic-dentistry practices keep clients’ grins even and gleaming, with porcelain crowns, veneers, and at-home custom whitening, among other treatments.
Aestheticians, massage therapists, and professional nurses—together they form a beauty-imbuing dream team and comprise the staff of Tan Rio. This makes the bronzing boutique uniquely suited to administer a sweeping range of beauty services. Tanning specialists stand by to guide clients through three levels of powerful UV beds, ensuring safe, gentle coloring sessions, whereas spray-tan technicians forgo UV rays and opt instead to airbrush bodies with sun-free tanning solution. Armed with a diverse repertoire of massage styles, professional muscle menders soothe tired bodies and chase away stress, using therapeutic, sports, and hot-stone treatments. Registered nurses, meanwhile, extend their expertise into med-spa services such as Botox injections and tattoo removal. This versatile staff even offers an innovative ear-stapling treatment, which may help curb stubborn cravings for junk food and lifelong crushes on Mickey Rooney.
Jeanette Joyce, the I-ACT–certified colon hydrotherapist and owner of Rio Cleansing Therapy, believes that because many illnesses originate in the colon, keeping the colon clean with regular hydrotherapy treatments improves overall health and wellness. This belief stems from firsthand knowledge that parasites and systemic yeast overgrowth affect the body, as well as 12 years of active experience in the field. In addition to colon hydrotherapy, Jeanette may further detoxify corpuses with ionic footbaths or administer infusion implants at the end of hydrotherapy sessions, directing substances such as patient-provided wheatgrass or herbs into the large intestine to optimize the results of a session and start an internal garden.
