Forty-six-year-old single mom Leslie was so inspired by her first encounters with LED phototherapy that she became certified as a skin technician shortly thereafter. Today, more than 10 years later, she helps her clients eschew the need to drop thousands of dollars on injections, plastic surgery, and facial creams by harnessing blue- and red-light technologies. With careful calibrations, she has found laser therapy to effectively treat fine lines, cellulite, and acne.
NewSkin Tattoo Removal's specialists clear away tattoos of all kinds, ranging from complex pieces that cover the entire back to cruder designs and those temporary tattoos that won't wash off. Their implement of choice is the Q-switched Nd: Yag, a laser designed specifically for tattoo removal. Its beams break down the structure of ink particles so that the body can flush them away. In addition to full tattoo removal, patrons can opt to lighten up a tattoo so that it can be covered by another, or to remove only a portion of a tattoo.
CAT Studio, which began primarily as an airbrush-tanning salon, expanded to include pole-fitness classes after owner and pole-fitness aficionado Jessica Williams was persuaded to do so by her clients. Since then, Jessica has furnished her studio with a disco ball and four poles, which students use during fun, challenging workout routines that combine dance, fitness, and acrobatics. Both of Jessica’s instructors have at least two years of pole-fitness experience and can speak personally to its effectiveness: each is a new mother that got back into shape by practicing the fun exercise. Classes are designed to accommodate all ages and skill levels; beginners usually wear shorts and a T-shirt.
Aside from pole fitness, the studio’s team of airbrush artists customizes spray tans while taking into consideration the client's skin tone, preference of golden hue, and aspirations to look like an Oscar award. Airbrush-tanning sessions can be further personalized with select scents, tanning lotions, and body glitter, and the studio also carries a variety of tanning products for home use. Custom airbrush tattoos are available for those that want to sport a cool design for an upcoming event or just for fun.
