By the time Dr. Richard H. Dubou brought his talents to Louisville Plastics, he had already racked up a string of accomplishments. His achievements included graduating cum laude from Brandeis University, earning his medical degree from State University of New York Downstate Medical Center, and serving as lieutenant commander of the United States Public Health Service at the Marine Hospital’s surgery department in Galveston, Texas. Today, at Louisville Plastics, he oversees a staff of health and beauty specialists who help clients alter their outer appearances through elective surgery as well as less invasive measures, such as Radiesse injections, which reduce fine lines and increase skin’s volume with a special formula.
A rose captioned with an ex-girlfriend's name. A barbed wire band from a teenage Pamela Anderson phase. Garfield throwing rocks at the logo of a rival sports team. While decision-making skills improve with age, tattoos often remain tangible proof of youthful indiscretion. The technicians at Laser My Tat understand that sometimes, ink that seemed like a can't-miss idea looks less rosy with the benefit of hindsight. After an initial consultation, techs draw up a treatment plan and set about diligently erasing tattoos with the help of their Q-switched Nd:YAG laser system. Over the course of a few sessions, the laser's energy breaks down once-permanent ink into small particles that are then removed by the body's natural defenses, eventually leaving skin free from any regrettable marks.
Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery since 1999, Dr. Lee Corbett opened his own practice in 2003 where he focuses on cosmetic procedures. In addition to surgeries such as breast enhancement and body contouring, Dr. Corbett and his staff also perform noninvasive services such as facial peels to reduce skin damage, Botox to fight signs of aging, and laser tattoo removal.
The technicians at Laser My Tat carry an arsenal of some of the highest pulsed lasers to attack cellulite, stretch marks, and tattoos. They use the Q-Switched laser to break apart ink particles into tiny pieces that the body can absorb naturally. They’re also armed with radio-frequency technology to help combat cellulite and stubborn fat deposits in the area.
The accomplished tattoo artists at KYSL Xtreme Ink and Piercing stamp the skin with colorful, custom art and decorate the body with shimmering hoops and studs. Their repertoire of meticulously inked images ranges from whimsical pictures such as a giraffe or sentient ice-cream cone to more iconic visuals, such as a shadowy portrait of John Lennon or a bold emblem of Captain America's shield. The team also applies permanent makeup designed to match skin tone and personal style. Bright-red walls, leather couches, and hardwood floors create a salon-like interior, and 60-inch televisions distract clients wary of needles and getting burned by a flaming yin-yang symbol.
