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.
Mom and Pop Tattoo & Piercing’s artists and piercers create unique works of art on clients' bodies with deft tattoo-work and inventive jewelry. In private booths, tattoo artists Jamie Ventura and Derek Reckard adorn arms, backs, and feet with one-of-a-kind artwork, such as barbed wire. Decade-plus piercing veteran Reverend Sean Theroux slips custom-shaped jewelry through ears and tongues, including jewelry for ears specially designed to thread through multiple piercings.
Inflicting Ink Tattoo owner Jeff Goyette understands that, though the decision to get a tattoo is a lifetime commitment, sometimes life's best laid designs inspire regrets years later. Whether his customers are prompted by the poor performance of a previous tattoo artist, a painful break-up, or a simple lifestyle change, Jeff helps rid them of unwanted ink with the help of his parlor's Quanta laser system. Certified as a Laser Specialist and Laser Safety Officer by Quanta's makers, Jeff blasts away colors light and dark with the laser's muscular 15-30 joule pulses. With this power at his fingertips, he can zap away more tats in five visits or less.
Once old ink is no more, Jeff can also commemorate the occasion with new tattoos imprinted in his custom studio. He and his fellow tattoo artists not only tattoo bodies with traditional designs, but forge bold, colorful new-school designs and perform cosmetic tattooing services. He also takes his show on the road, traveling to tattoo events far and wide in a self-contained, fully licensed mobile studio complete with three spacious workstations, sleek wood paneling, and gleaming steel sinks.
No matter the venue, Jeff and his staffers always place an emphasis on education. Clients can spend time mulling over Inflicting Ink's range of tattoo tips—from what to look for in a studio to how to make your tattooed sailor girl apply for an undergraduate program by simply flexing your biceps.
Many an aesthetic problem has yielded to Norma Cataldo, the clinical director of Cosmetic Laser Solutions. She has been fixing dermal flaws with noninvasive beams of light for more than 10 years, remedying conditions such as wrinkles, sun spots, cellulite, and spider veins.
At the clinic, she is supported by Dr. Patrick Marasco, a board-certified plastic surgeon. With their combined skills, they are able to treat patients to more invasive procedures in their in-office surgical suite as well as lively harmonies over the intercom system.
The Rhode Island Dermatology & Cosmetic Center's team of skin smoothers clears and beautifies human hides through a range of innovative techniques. Three VelaShape treatments can make significant progress in restoring firmness to flesh while treating tenacious settlements of cellulite. The noninvasive procedure employs elos technology, a versatile combination of light and bi-polar radio frequencies to condense circumferences and tighten the thighs, buttocks, hips, and abdomen.
Trained in cutting-edge fat-reduction procedures such as Smartlipo TriPlex and Vaser Liposelection, Dr. Edwin Ishoo and his staff aim to obliterate cellulite using the latest high-tech cosmetic treatments. The VelaShape II is designed to boost the metabolism of stored energy and shrink fat cells and chambers with a multipronged attack consisting of bipolar radiofrequency, infrared light energies, mechanical massage, and indisputable logic. Patients relax during the quick procedure, which can be as short as 20 minutes, while technicians heat their dermal and hypodermal tissue, then use suction skin rollers in an effort to smooth out crinkly bone covers. Results can appear as soon as the third weekly session and can last up to six months.
