During more than 15 years spent photographing models, athletes, and musicians, Rockstar Tattoo Removal founder Todd Todd often heard his subjects' tattoo-related complaints and ardent longings for ink-free skin. Interest piqued, Todd started to research the tattoo-removal industry, visiting facilities around the country and reading the ancient tattoo-removal secrets printed inside Bazooka gum wrappers. He found most existing tattoo-removal facilities uninviting, and set out to create a skin-restoring destination where social butterflies would be glad to touch down.
A relaxed atmosphere complete with rock and hip-hop music, jovial conversation, and a treatment chair surrounded by velvet ropes give Rockstar Tattoo Removal the spirit of an exclusive club rather than the sickly green aura of tattoo-removal centers set inside medical facilities or garden centers. The Candela Alex TriVantage laser targets tattoos with multiple wavelengths of light, causing even multicolored tattoos to fade, and can also be used to dissolve freckles or age spots on targeted skin surfaces.
Serenity Tattoo Removal houses a team of experienced tattoo undoers that wields the power of a YAG laser to clear away unwanted ink from all skin types. During each session of tattoo analysis and removal, skin sultans will consult with the client before clearing black and red ink from an area of up to 2"x4", great for erasing small roses and inconveniently placed checkerboards. Before beginning, Serenity’s aestheticians can employ the Zimmer skin chiller to cool the skin and reduce discomfort. Like the number of Christmases in a leap year, session length can vary, and most clients require 8–12 sessions for complete removal.
At Laser Inches Off, a doctor-directed facility nestled within McLeod Wellness Center, laser-lipo treatments do what gyms can't—spot-treat fat. The noninvasive laser light penetrates down to the fat cells in problem areas such as the hips and thighs and creates temporary holes in their membranes. The cells then release their contents into the body and shrink. Unlike glue that's been used to spike hair, the expelled contents are easily removed from the body, especially when the laser-lipo treatment is coupled with a session on a vibration plate. In addition to the laser-lipo treatments, Laser Inches Off also offers medical weight loss programs, B12 shots, and diet plans specifically tailored to each individual client.
During his years at Vein Clinic of Las Vegas, American College of Phlebology member Dr. Bashy has successfully banished more than 50,000 spider veins and other vascular specters with sclerotherapy injections. Following an initial consultation to determine each patient's trouble spots and penchant for argyle stockings, the doctor slips slender needles packed with non-saline Asclera solution into unwanted veins, gradually erasing epidermal etchings and rerouting blood cells onto more hidden highways. Patients can de-spider two body areas in one appointment or pummel a single extremity with injections at three-week intervals. Unlike traditional saline injections, Asclera injections are relatively painless result in no downtime, speeding visitors off to sleeker cancan tryouts within 45 minutes.
At locations across the country, the technicians of Lipo Laser Centers of America rely on advanced technology to produce the beautyifying results of surgery, only without the scalpels. Using a combination of suction, laser energy, and cooling techniques, their FDA-approved Cynosure TriActive machines can eliminate cellulite on the thighs and buttocks, while also massaging and soothing muscles. When paired with 15- to 20-minute vibration plate sessions, their low-level lipo-laser devices can help bodies shed fat and inches. In fact, after only two lipo-laser sessions, patients may observe up to two-inch reductions from their waistlines and a newfound ability to squeeze themselves through skeleton keyholes.
At the heart of Premier Physicians Weightloss & Wellness stand Doctors Dana Trippi and Erik Evensen, who both believe in practicing the healthy-living tips they share with clients. Dr. Trippi gallops across half-marathon finish lines, and both she and Dr. Evensen dole out nutrition and fitness advice to kids andcorporate weight-loss groups.
Along with supervising a roster of weight-loss programs, each with its own approach to calorie control, the doctors conduct physicals and prescribe medicines to patients suffering from pesky coughs and colds. Clients can also change their appearance by tapping into the center’s reserves of anti-aging treatments.
At Body Couture SX, Dr. J. Kurt Bivens performs a wide range of body-rejuvenating treatments and surgical procedures. His cosmetic repertoire spans from relaxing facials to restorative facial surgery, and Botox, breast augmentation, and laser hair removal all fall within his purview.
