Certified laser specialist Pamela Archer is a staunch believer in the manifold power of lasers, employing their beams to rid bodies of hair, spider veins, wrinkles, and fungus at BARELaser clinic. Her arsenal of Quanta lasers covers a wide range of wavelengths to address the needs of patients of all skin types and ham-radio-station preferences. The center's resident aesthetician conquers issues unreachable by lasers through skin-smoothing injections of Botox or dermal fillers.
At Darcy’s Beauty Solutions, Darcy, a medical aesthetician, combats wrinkles with an array of antiaging injectables: Botox, Juvederm, Perlane, and Dysport. However, she is more than a medical aesthetician—she is also a certified laser technician who can rejuvenate faces with fractional laser skin resurfacing. During the treatment, the laser’s beams shatter into microbeams, which noninvasively alleviate burn scars and shrink large pores. To round out her selection, Darcy stocks a variety of skincare products, which range from oil-free makeup remover to a pH-balanced glycolic mud cleanser.
The certified laser technicians at What Were You Inking? remove regrettable tattoos of all sizes, colors, and quality. After performing an initial exam to assess the damage, professional brand lifters de-dedicate biceps to former lovers with the help of the Astanza Trinity laser. Using three wavelengths, the machine can dissolve most colors of the rainbow into an invisible ink mist without scraping the delicate epidermis, minimizing the chance of scarring and encouraging rapid recovery. Each session lasts approximately 15 minutes, and depending on the tattoo, bodies can be free of poorly drawn Muppet Babies in five to 10 treatments.
Laserwave Clinic harnesses advanced laser technology to combat everything from unwanted tattoos and body hair to nail fungus and yellowed teeth. Technicians target follicles during efficient, 10-to-20-minute laser hair removal sessions that can help permanently reduce unwanted growth. Tattoo-removal treatments begin with a blast from the cryofreezing machine, which numbs areas and makes cold hearts even colder before a laser sweeps in to break up epidermal debris. The team’s lasers also beam across teeth to brighten smiles and heat up nails to hinder unsightly fungus.
Armed with seven years of experience in the healthcare industry, Aspiring Laser Renewal owner and founder Lonnie Beard helps clients reach their individual skin-renewal goals with personalized laser services. With the help of laser-treatment expert Dr. Jerald Searle, the center's staff harnesses a diverse arsenal of light-based technology, wielding IPL devices to rejuvenate skin and remove varicose veins, MedLite C6 lasers to erase tattoos, and powerful, follicle-banishing equipment to remove unwanted hair. Before appointments, clients can kick back in the sleek waiting area amid large plants and framed pieces of art depicting the comic-book villains foiled by the specialists' benevolent laser beams.
At Rethink the Ink, certified laser specialists help clients forget about deep-set skin stains by breaking down unwanted ink with highly concentrated pulses of pure light. Prior to taking on the task of removing body graffiti, each technician receives thorough training from Lorenzo Kunze, M.E., who was a pioneer in the advancement of aesthetic and medical laser treatments. During each 10-minute treatment the team collaborates with an advanced Quanta DNA laser system, which features a large spot size to treat multiple ink colors at once. The treatment—the feeling of which is often likened to being snapped by a rubber band—also maximizes comfort by applying chilled air to the skin courtesy of a Zimmer Cryo 6 cooling system. The body's natural immune function gradually removes broken-down ink after each treatment, eventually leaving skin free of scars and out-of-date shopping lists.
