Dr. Mike Towey uses five lasers to permeate the skin, erasing tattoo ink of all colors. A board-certified physician and Minnesota native, he strives to make these sessions as comfortable as possible by applying numbing creams to alleviate any pain or anxiety. Inside the shop, a space awash in vibrant Caribbean colors, Dr. Towey takes 7–9 sessions to send tattoos into the ether, with the body expelling the broken-up ink through natural processes.
Northeast Laser Tattoo Removal is the joint project of a physician and a veteran tattoo artist. Medical director Thomas H. Barrows, MD, has extensive experience using and studying medical lasers. He's lectured on laser-skin interactions throughout the world, and has even helped design the machines. Laser technician Aleksandar Nedich complements the doctor's clinical expertise with 15 years of experience in the tattoo industry. He understands the way ink sits in the skin and can slide off sleeve tattoos as if they were oiled water wings.
Nedich designed the clinic's comfortable space, adorning it with Indonesian folk art and leather couches. He and Dr. Barrows welcome clients in for consultations, presenting information on costs, procedures, and aftercare in a clear and direct manner.

In a minimalist office with ivory carpeting and black accents, Dr. Glenn Detlefsen and his staff polish away fine lines and resurface skin with injectables, laser treatments, photofacials, and peels, which can bring a youthful glow to visages without permanently situating them over a birthday cake with five flickering candles. The center bases treatments on results from Visia digital skin analysis, which investigates six aspects contributing to the health and appearance of clients' facial features, including the depth and frequency of wrinkles, the size of pores, and the number of freckles feigned with magic marker.
At Natural Health Solutions, Doctor of Chiropractic Brandon Mannie and his team perform holistic treatments that either help heal or prevent pain or improve overall wellness. Chiropractic services such as x-rays and vertebral adjustments ensure bodies get back to optimal health. A functional-medicine approach uses tools such as physical exams and medical-history questionnaires to find out what is causing a patient pain. Nutritional counseling and lifestyle advice help patients figure out what foods or activities to avoid in order to maintain good health.
Dr. Mannie also helps improve appearances with body wraps that reduce cellulite and lipolasers, which noninvasively shrink fat cells. Whole-body vibration plates further tone muscles with vigorous shaking.

Not ones to be upstaged, the spa’s nail technicians use therapeutic massages to relax feet stressed out by treadmills that render their one job meaningless.
