Christian Hunt is no stranger to expediting the healing process. She got her start in 1994 as a licensed massage therapist and made the leap to acupuncture in 2001. After a life spent sun-bathing, skiing, and hugging nuclear reactors, the jill-of-all-trades wanted to find creative ways to undo the effects of sun- and wind-damage while, as she says, “sticking it to aging.” At The Needlery, the certified skin revisionist turns her attention to that task with a trio of natural age-combatting procedures: tattoo removal, needlederm abrasion, and dermal rolling.
To oust unwanted ink, Christian uses the Tattoo Vanish system. Unlike other methods that rely on dangerous acids or limb replacements, her system employs a contraption similar to a tattoo machine to remove layers of skin until ink can be removed with cleaning solution. For fine lines and wrinkles, she trots out needlederm abrasion and dermal rolling. The former uses a machine similar to the Tattoo Vanish mechanism to administer tiny pinpricks into lines and scars, leaving room for the body to naturally replenish collagen and elastin. A small handheld wheel covered in hundreds of tiny needles, dermal rollers likewise stimulate elastin and collagen. After each procedure, Christian sits down with clients to go over thorough home-care instructions and discuss several follow-up options.
The staff at Louisville Laser and Spa gives a decidedly simple answer when its patients ask the best way to maintain skin: daily care and healthy living. Its services?many of them designed to make skin look younger?only serve to expedite the process. Administered by an advanced nurse practitioner or an aesthetician, the treatments include laser hair removal, laser skin tightening, chemical peels, pigment removal, spider vein removal, tattoo removal, and microdermabrasion. The spa's most popular option, laser hair removal uses beams of light to reduce and remove unwanted hair on the body. In addition to skincare, technicians use Botox to freeze facial muscles so that wrinkles soften and amateur ventriloquists finally can reach the next level. Louisville Laser and Spa also offers professional teeth whitening.
Tacoma Laser Clinic tackles blemishes with advanced technology and aesthetic know-how. Its staff is trained in laser systems and dermal fillers, which could help clients look young enough to get carded even when they're buying a rum cake with "Happy 30th Birthday to Me!" written in icing. Their treatments include laser hair removal, Botox, and myriad skincare treatments for everything from lack of elasticity to discoloration. Tacoma Laser also offers tattoo removal should clients want to remove inked designs they now regret, such as the one on their shoulder that reads, "Happy 30th Birthday to Me!"
The aestheticians and physicians at Silk Touch Skin & Laser don’t take a one-laser-fits-all approach to skincare. Rather, they use the specific laser that works best for each procedure. During virtually pain-free treatments, Alma lasers permanently reduce undesirable hair, whereas a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser breaks up the inky pigments of unwanted tattoos and pet-squid hugs. With its Pixel Perfect laser, the Silk Touch team smoothes acne scars, diminishes sun damage, and eradicates wrinkles and fine lines. As an alternative to these laser treatments, guests can choose to undergo chemical peels, which remove damaged outer layers of skin and reveal a smoother layer of skin underneath.
Much of what Serenity Rejuvenation Center does rests on the shoulders of its medical director, Dr. Stephen O'Connell. As a physician, his knack for physical medicine and rehabilitation ultimately earned him a diplomate status on the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. However, upon reaching another of his field's peaks, Dr. O'Connell decided to branch out into the field of aesthetic medicine. Today, he oversees skincare services such as Botox and Juvederm, along with Cool Sculpting, laser hair removal, weight loss services such as the hCG diet, and wellness services such as vitamin B injections, which inject the bloodstream with a shot of bees.
Within a black-and-white 1,500-square-foot facility embellished with tropical accents, Kucumber Skin Lounge's physician-supervised medical aestheticians enhance earthly edifices with hair removal sessions performed with lasers or customized wax, Botox injections, and cutting-edge skin treatments such as hydrafacials, photofacials, and chemical peels. Tattoo removal services rid bodies of the names of ex-lovers or outdated maps leading to safe-deposit boxes hidden during the Y2K scare. Other body beautifiers include tanning and specialized cosmetic treatments.
