Armed with an army of innovative and certified shutterbugs, Olan Mills Portrait Studio provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to recreate look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea-battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.

Laser treatments are the focus at Reflection Medical Spa: laser hair removal, laser cellulite reduction, laser vein removal, laser facials. Lasers fit with the med spa's commitment to noninvasive cosmetic beauty procedures. In addition to its host of laser treatments, Reflection's staff, led by Dr. Florencia R. Guzman, injects dermal fillers, such as Botox and Juvéderm; rejuvenates skin with facial procedures, such as fractional skin resurfacing and microdermabrasion; and aids weight loss with methods that include meal replacements and appetite suppressants.
With its Star Trekable equipment and top-notch customer service, Anderson Cosmetic & Vein Institute has been a leader in the non-surgical cosmetic field for the past 10 years, though it looks way younger. Instead of self-serve laser stations, an experienced staff helps customers begin their fleshoskeleton's beautification with an initial skin assessment and a consultation that determines the best way to customize the treatment to each patient. Patrons can then experience a microdermapeel treatment, which combines the effects of microdermabrasion with a chemical peel. Microdermabrasion stimulates the production of new cells and collagen through gentle abrasion and voodoo spells, and following that, a customized glycolic or salicylic-acid peel is applied to provide further exfoliation while reducing pore size, scarring, small lines, and the risk of being hit by lightning.
