Certified laser technicians and aestheticians wield wands of intense pulsed light at Estetical Laser & Skincare Studio, removing unwanted patches of hair, regrettable tattoos, and stubborn acne. They also treat faces with hydroxy-acid peels, which work to diminish fine lines, sun spots, and freckles caused by too much time in the moonlight.
Dr. Raffi Krikorian, the medical director at New Look Vein and Aesthetic Center, and his staff employ vascular know-how as they treat unsightly, unruly, and painful vessels in the legs. Techniques range from laser, radiofrequency, and chemical-injection treatment of large varicose veins to more dramatic ambulatory phlebectomies and cheese-baited vein traps. In addition to fighting the purple graffiti of unwanted veins, they also ward off the signs of aging with wrinkle-plumping injectables and chemical-peel facials. Vials of Latisse pump up eyelash volume to fortissimo and hand rejuvenation leaves paws smooth and supple, as if they'd been washing dishes in the Fountain of Youth.
Some things are forever. Fortunately, varicose veins and tattoos don't make that list. As St Louis's premier facility for vein treatments, The Vein Center & CosMed will always provide the best medical care available for unsightly veins and all cosmetic skin improvements. Patients are ensured that all treatments are performed by or under the supervision of a Board Certified Surgeon.
With the use of the Q-switched laser, licensed aestheticians can eliminate or alter unwanted tattoos. Lasers can be used to improve much more, too, including birthmarks, stretch marks, cellulite, and wrinkles. Besides laser treatments, the team at The Vein Center & CosMed provide many other cosmetic services including Botox, fillers, skin peels, and microdermabrasion in addition to prescription skincare products.
Permanent Great Looks Salon & Spa’s team of spa technicians enhances exteriors with a comprehensive menu of skin, body, and nail treatments. Manicure services provide customers with nails painted with Shellac polish that protects against chips for up to two weeks, even after wearers build sand castles to store stockpiles of shucked oyster shells. Toes simmer in heated bubble basins before curling up in steamy towels in the pedicure room, and aestheticians stationed in serene private rooms treat skin to body scrubs designed to polish surfaces and stir circulation. The active ingredients in body-scrub formulas range from Dead Sea salt to organic brown sugar steeped with essential oils and more conducive to soft skin than intercepting sneezes from the Marshmallow Man.
St. Louis Lipo Laser eschews the space-age aesthetic one might expect from a laser body-sculpting center; if anything, the clinic's unassuming red-brick storefront invokes the charm of a neighborhood medical practice. This same charm pervades the center's treatment rooms, where skilled physicians and technicians welcome their patients with old-fashioned kindness as they call upon noninvasive lipo-laser technology in lieu of traditional liposuction to help combat excess pounds. Lipo-laser treatments can shrink fat cells around the hips, arms, thighs, and other areas without inflicting the incisions that more invasive fat-removal procedures require. After laser sessions coupled with body-vibration treatments, patients may see increased flexibility and other benefits similar to those of traditional exercise, and they can immediately resume such regular activities as walking down stairs and climbing up elevator cables.
Kirk Carlile was deeply troubled by the damaging effects of lasers and chemicals on people's skin. Though these costly procedures claimed to heal, they frequently did far more harm than good, changing skin pigmentation while doing little to reduce wrinkles or other skin concerns. That's why he decided to pursue natural methods to rejuvenate and beautify complexions, tapping into his education as a micropigmentologist and permanent-makeup artist. At Color Me Beautiful, he helps his clients achieve their desired beauty results with everything from collagen therapy and stretch-mark removal to permanent-makeup services, including tattoo removal.
