The artists at The Missing Piece Tattoo decorate appendages with permanently inked masterpieces. Artists draw upon their respective portfolios to emblazon emotional statements upon unblemished skin or to cover up tats bearing the names of unrequited loves and lost pet monkeys. Clients seeking personalized embellishments may consult with artists to forge custom-crafted images, and laser removal services erase unwanted tattoos. Skin-painters open single-use needles from sterile packages in front of their clients before work commences, and tools and countertops receive routine chemical sterilization overseen by a registered nurse.
Valley Dermatology’s Dr. Scott A. Smith curtails signs of aging with a host of minimally invasive cosmetic treatments. Dysport, a skin-smoothing serum, temporarily irons out cranial creases for up to four months. The 15-minute treatment targets facescapes wrought with creases and lines by dispersing a dewrinkling solution that calms hyperactive facial muscles. The dewrinkling solution can smooth furrows on the forehead, crow's feet, or between the eyebrows; and the minimally invasive treatment requires no downtime, so faces can resume everyday activities such as smiling and catching whipped cream pies.
Aspire Skin & Wellness Clinic shrinks stubborn fat cells with a full spectrum of high-tech lipo-laser and infrared treatments. Each 60-minute lipo-laser session begins with a comprehensive BMI and weight measurement to take stock of physical landscapes. Come treatment time, the client relaxes on a bed as a certified laser maven moves small diode paddles on lymph nodes across the body, breaking up resilient spots of fat cells. The lipo-laser package begins and ends with a trip to the whole-body vibration device to shake down any freed-up fatty acids or leftover lunch money while exercising muscles through a series of contractions and relaxations. The technicians at Aspire Skin & Wellness can also exile unwanted adipose with a slimming far infrared wrap, combining skin-tightening essential-oil creams with a relaxing invisible-spectrum hug, designed to break up fat tissue, reduce cellulite, and warm the body's inner caramel core.
Captained by skincare aficionado Katie Arendt, the aestheticians at About Face restore skin's youthful radiance with diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatments and Dermalogica products. To begin the face-refurbishing process, an aesthetician applies a deep-cleansing treatment before a diamond-tip wand sashays up and down epidermal real estate, suctioning away dead cells and resurfacing skin. To up the aesthetic ante, extractions evict troublesome blemishes, and a massage kneads away facial tension. Guests then yield their nose and cheek placeholders to a nourishing mask and moisturizer, which hydrate patches of skin made flaky by nuzzling sandpaper cutouts of Hollywood hunks. The 70-minute session reveals a freshly glowing face with smoothed fine lines, reduced acne damage, and cheeks softer than a bunny that has devoured its weight in marshmallows.
Dimensions Salon keeps a talented staff on hand to tackle nearly every beauty desire. Stylists can cut hair or add length with wigs and human-hair extensions.

For special occasions, the pros expertly apply makeup and eyelash extensions long enough to flag down the helicopter that's been hovering above your house.
