The artists behind Art Monster set their sights on all sorts of blank canvases—from hoodies to sports cars to biceps—and transform them into eye-catching pieces of artwork. Owner Chris Sabatino keeps the modern studio in pristine condition all week long for his staff to decorate bodies with intricate tattoos. They also infuse wardrobes with a bit of attitude by custom airbrushing illustrations of their clients' favorite sports teams, animals, or Pantone swatches.
The technicians at Advanced Laser-like Lipo work to slim physiques and smooth birthday suits with light-based body-contouring sessions. The process involves the use of cold laser light, which is applied to the skin, encouraging fat cells to open and release water, glycerol, free fatty acids, and any lose change that may be weighing them down. Once their contents have been released, the fat cells can shrink, helping to slim problem areas and improve the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks, or lax skin.
When Alive magazine publisher Elizabeth Tucker first thought about LASIK surgery as an alternative to the glasses she had worn since second grade, she didn't think it was an option. She feared the cost, worried about the time off work, and was unsure about how safe the procedure would be. Luckily, numerous friends told her about the transformative effects of their own procedures, and she finally decided to take the plunge at Crown Laser Center. There, a team of seven board-certified ophthalmologists, optometrists, and surgeons put Elizabeth and other clients at ease as they correct corneas with trained hands and cutting-edge equipment, boasting a 99% surgery-success rate. Elizabeth is now glasses-free and doesn't regret a thing. "It's been life-changing for me," she says in a video on the laser center's website, "I would recommend it to anyone."
Liz Davis loves drama. Dramatic color and dramatic style; they?re both a part of her cosmetic flair. Her portfolio shows off this bombast, particularly in her hairdressing chops, a skill that was first cultivated as a Paul Mitchell student. Bangs form a sharp diagonal down the forehead, and dueling shades of curls intertwine to form a shape and pattern akin to a peppermint. The hues come from professional lines such as Schwarzkopf and Pravana Vivids, and the original cuts are the work of her own scissors, razors, and pet falcon's beak. Liz also beautifies faces with makeup application, brow shaping, and lash tinting.
At The Hills Dental Care, Dr. Erin Scimone uses a special intraoral camera that helps her see every angle in a client?s mouth on a monitor or Times Square billboard for easier viewing. That technology, along with digital x-rays, best unearths trouble areas that can be corrected with fillings, root canals, and dental implants. The dentist also bolsters smiles with custom-crafted veneers and teeth-whitening sessions.
