Inside the welcoming confines of Medical Aesthetics’ cheery red brick clinic, a team of specialists works to foster glowing skin from head to toe. The aestheticians customize facials to individual complexions, and administer FDA-approved Botox or Juvederm XR injections during private appointments or group parties. Laser hair removal treatments help free bodies of unwanted fuzz or clinging bunny slippers. And in keeping with their mission to provide rejuvenating care, the staff also schedules yoga classes before aesthetic treatments and throughout the week.
Michael Weber and Nick Adams aim their lenses at everything from beaming couples to photogenic plates of pasta. The two harness more than 25 years of combined experience as they craft images—not the kind that sit sedately in frames, but rather the kind that leap out, grab your face, and launch into stories about dimpled babies, flying mortarboards, and couples vowing to stay together in sickness and in health. Their artistic, modern style yields images perfect for family albums but also polished enough for model portfolios. They share the techniques behind that deft approach during introductory and advanced photography classes, passing down their exuberance for the art form whose development spared museum-goers from more dreary years of staring at da Vinci’s finger paintings.
As its name suggests, Tan Envy Tanning Salon's main objective is to help pale bodies obtain the exact bronze shade they covet most. Numerous tiers of UV tanning beds from brands like Universe and Blue Moon allow bodies to build their tan gradually, while a VersaSpa automated spray-tanning booth sends alternating jets of pigmented mist and drying gusts to ensconce clients in a streak-free glow in fewer than 60 seconds. For those more worried about wrinkles than a waxen complexion, the salon also offers clients access to rejuvenating red-light therapy, a treatment that sends infrared rays deep into skin to enhance collagen production, diminish the appearance of fine lines and acne, or correct an imbalance of infragreen.

The Twin Cities RISE! Core Program presents its participants with an average of 12?18 months of personal-empowerment training, one-on-one coaching, customized work-skills instruction, internships, and employment-placement services.

TCR! expects to distribute 1,832 bus passes in 2011, and perhaps more with the help of outside donations.
