Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center's team, which is captained by board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Rifai, enhances anatomical aesthetics with noninvasive treatments and surgical procedures such as liposuction and facelifts. Microdermabrasion wands zip over sun-hardened skin and injectables such as Botox and Juvéderm work to firm up facial surfaces and fade fine lines. The med spa procedures address a range of concerns, from unwanted hair to achy muscles. Furthermore, consultations at the center are always complimentary.
At Tip Top Tattoos, a team of tattoo and body piercing artists draw upon a huge selection of designs and personal creativity to give each guest a highly customized experience. They realize that no two tattoos should be the same and craft a visual representation of each client's imagined look within the privacy of individual booths. Certified body piercer Mallory Cox—whose apprenticeship and training included approved sterilization techniques and anatomy courses—adds bling to ears, noses, and fashion-forward tin men.
The technicians can also discard old, unwanted tattoos with the MedLite C6 Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser system, which they use in conjunction with the Cryo 6 cooling machine to minimize discomfort.

Center for Vein Restoration has recruited a staff of highly accredited surgeons and licensed medical staffers across 20 locations in Maryland, Washington, DC, and Northern Virginia, all focused on offering minimally invasive, same-day outpatient clinical solutions that target varicose veins and spider veins. Board-certified doctors on staff are trained to treat patients who suffer from leg pain and other symptoms of varicose veins. While spider veins?which are typically a cosmetic blight?may be treated with sclerotherapy, varicose veins often require a more involved treatment, such as laser ablation?an outpatient surgical procedure. Aiming to make treatments as minimally invasive as possible, the doctors on staff can also prescribe lifestyle changes for less serious cases, which may include following exercise and nutrition plans or wearing compression stockings.
The team at European Spa Boutique administers a blend of naturally derived and technologically advanced treatments. A less-irritating antiseptic wax made from soybeans is used for hair removal and heated lava stones warm achy muscles during body treatments. Hairstylists trim and shape tresses to create fashionable new looks. For the extensive selection of facials, aestheticians call upon botanical extracts to calm acned skin, chocolate and berries to concoct chemical peels, and microcurrent and LED-light therapies to increase collagen production and dissipate fine lines.
