Patients meet with cosmetic surgeon Dr. Harold E. Beam amid the contemporary décor of his office or the tranquil setting of his med spa to plan surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. Using brands such as Obagi Medical and Skinceuticals, aestheticians soften surfaces and address imperfections through facials, peels, dermaplaning, and microdermabrasion. A collection of injectables reduces signs of aging and augments facial features, helping lips reach their full capacity or eyebrows raise in the least judgmental manner.
Sparse eyebrows, thin lips, and lingering scars are no match for A Better Image's SofTap permanent makeup. Aestheticians use a microprobe to gently inject natural-looking pigments around the eyes, lips, areola, or anywhere else that needs more pigment, including those bearing the vestiges of burns or surgery. The tattooing process is entirely the choice of the client, who can choose how subtle or dramatic they wish their new look to be. A Better Image also offers permanent hair removal and eyebrow shaping services.
Inflicting Ink Tattoo owner Jeff Goyette understands that, though the decision to get a tattoo is a lifetime commitment, sometimes life's best laid designs inspire regrets years later. Whether his customers are prompted by the poor performance of a previous tattoo artist, a painful break-up, or a simple lifestyle change, Jeff helps rid them of unwanted ink with the help of his parlor's Quanta laser system. Certified as a Laser Specialist and Laser Safety Officer by Quanta's makers, Jeff blasts away colors light and dark with the laser's muscular 15-30 joule pulses. With this power at his fingertips, he can zap away more tats in five visits or less.
Once old ink is no more, Jeff can also commemorate the occasion with new tattoos imprinted in his custom studio. He and his fellow tattoo artists not only tattoo bodies with traditional designs, but forge bold, colorful new-school designs and perform cosmetic tattooing services. He also takes his show on the road, traveling to tattoo events far and wide in a self-contained, fully licensed mobile studio complete with three spacious workstations, sleek wood paneling, and gleaming steel sinks.
No matter the venue, Jeff and his staffers always place an emphasis on education. Clients can spend time mulling over Inflicting Ink's range of tattoo tips—from what to look for in a studio to how to make your tattooed sailor girl apply for an undergraduate program by simply flexing your biceps.
Many an aesthetic problem has yielded to Norma Cataldo, the clinical director of Cosmetic Laser Solutions. She has been fixing dermal flaws with noninvasive beams of light for more than 10 years, remedying conditions such as wrinkles, sun spots, cellulite, and spider veins.
At the clinic, she is supported by Dr. Patrick Marasco, a board-certified plastic surgeon. With their combined skills, they are able to treat patients to more invasive procedures in their in-office surgical suite as well as lively harmonies over the intercom system.
The Rhode Island Dermatology & Cosmetic Center's team of skin smoothers clears and beautifies human hides through a range of innovative techniques. Three VelaShape treatments can make significant progress in restoring firmness to flesh while treating tenacious settlements of cellulite. The noninvasive procedure employs elos technology, a versatile combination of light and bi-polar radio frequencies to condense circumferences and tighten the thighs, buttocks, hips, and abdomen.
Spa on the Green's beautifiers relax and freshen epidermises within a two-story ranch-style house filled with soft natural light, plush furniture, and the green accents of potted palms. Aestheticians coddle expression makers with a 50- to 60-minute spa facial, which rejuvenates normal, overactive, or acne-prone skin. Deep cleansing removes accumulated dirt and caked-on pie residue, and gentle exfoliation rousts out rooted impurities, leaving faces glowing and soft.
