Back in 1993, Dr. Sterling Carter snatched up his first biology degree. Undaunted by post-graduate malaise, he tucked into a Physical Therapy Bachelors program, before ordering up a second helping of academia with a Masters in Physical Therapy and then completing a doctorate in the subject from Simmons College. Perhaps the preternatural focus came from his military career, which he embarked on five years before he ever cart-wheeled into his first biology class. Today, he continues to serve in the military as a therapist while managing his own business for private citizens, Sterling Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation.
In addition to the good old fashioned assisted stretches, rehabilitative exercises, and massage commonly found at many physical therapy practices, Dr. Carter makes use of technological innovations hot of the technology presses.

He also unholsters cold lasers—non-thermal lights which can aid in reducing inflammation, pain, and the number of minutes per day you feel like you're not at a rave. Regardless of what treatment patients come to see him for—which ranges from injury rehabilitation to sports enhancement—Dr. Carter makes sure that nobody waits for more than 10 minutes.

The light is helmed not by a supervillain bent on the earth's destruction but by one of Sugar Land Laser Tattoo Removal's expert technicians, who aims to obliterate unwanted ink. Wielding the double-laser Astanza system, staff experts combine three wavelengths of light as they fade away single and multicolored tattoos.
Each treatment regimen begins with a consultation to determine how many sessions will be required; depending on tattoos' sizes and hues, some can be removed in two or three 10-minute treatments, whereas others will require further zapping. After each treatment, the sensation of which is commonly described as being flicked by a rubber band, the clinic doles out aftercare advice, such as avoiding the sun and utilizing cold compresses.
