Some people also pierce their ear cartilage (the hard part of the outer ear). Other places to pierce include the eyebrow, nose, tongue, lip, belly button, etc.
Nonsurgical body contouring is also known as nonsurgical fat reduction. There are a variety of nonsurgical fat reduction procedures. These procedures reduce or remove stubborn pockets of fat to contour and shape different areas of the body. Most nonsurgical fat reduction treatments are based on one of these four principles: Cryolipolysis, or controlled cooling, uses freezing temperatures to target and destroy fat cells. Laser lipolysis uses controlled heating and laser energy to target fat cells. Radiofrequency lipolysis uses controlled heating and ultrasound technology to target fat cells. Injection lipolysis uses injectable deoxycholic acid to target fat cells.
Botox injections block certain chemical signals from nerves, mostly signals that cause muscles to contract. The most common use of these injections is to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes.
A chemical peel is a technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the skin. Facial skin is mostly treated, and scarring can be improved. Chemical peels are intended to remove the outermost layers of the skin. To accomplish this task, the chosen peel solution induces a controlled injury to the skin. During this procedure, chemical solutions will be applied to the area being treated, which causes the skin to exfoliate and eventually peel off. Once this happens, the new skin underneath is often smoother, appears less wrinkled, and may have less damage.

Henna is an ancient art form of temporatily "dyeing" or "tattooing" the skin. Henna is applied to the skin as a paste, and once washed away, the reddish-orange stain begins to oxidize and darken over the next few days. Although not permanent, the body art can last up to one or two weeks on the surface of the skin, making it a pain-free alternative to traditional tattooing. These “tattoos” are a form of body art, associated with a distinctive deep orange-red color and intricate patterns on the hands, arms, legs, and feet. There are many different henna designs that stem from rich traditions in India, Africa, and the Middle East.
Juvederm is a cosmetic treatment referred to as a filler. It's used to restore facial contours and improve signs of aging. It's an injectable dermal filler with a base of hyaluronic acid. It's a treatment that focuses on the face, specifically the cheeks, lips, and around the mouth.
Most tattoos are removed with a Q-switched laser. It sends out energy in one strong pulse. This pulse of energy heats up the ink in the skin to dissolve it. Most experts consider laser removal to be the most successful and cost-effective way to remove tattoos. Individuals will need to receive a number of laser treatments over several weeks or longer to remove a tattoo.
Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that removes extra fat from the body. It’s also called lipo, lipoplasty, or body contouring. It’s considered a popular cosmetic surgery option. People get liposuction to improve the shape or contours of their body. They want to remove excess fat from areas such as the thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, arms, neck, or back. Usually, they’ve tried diet and exercise and can’t get rid of these fat deposits. Liposuction isn’t a weight loss treatment. It has serious risks and possible complications.

Manual microblading is a form of semi-permanent tattooing that involves using a small disposable blade attached to a handle that deposits pigment under skin.

Permanent cosmetic makeup is cosmetic tattooing. The specialized techniques used for permanent cosmetics are often referred to as “micropigmentation”, “micropigment implantation” or “dermagraphics”. The cosmetic implantation technique deposits colored pigment into the upper reticular layer of the dermis. Permanent cosmetics procedures are considered permanent because pigment is tattooed into the upper reticular part of the dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off.
Plasma fibroblast therapy targets fibroblasts. These are collagen– and protein-producing cells in the dermis, the layer of skin just below your outermost skin layer. Plasma fibroblast therapy uses a pen-like device that discharges a high-frequency electric current to small areas of the skin. The plasma tip doesn’t directly touch the skin, but instead releases a targeted current just above the skin. The hot current creates small holes, or micro-injuries, in the skin’s layer. he thermal disruption, or heat damage, from plasma fibroblast therapy breaks down proteins in the skin, encourages tissue regeneration, stimulates fibroblast activity, and causes tissue contraction (tightening). Healthcare providers may also call this approach plasma skin resurfacing.
Straigtht razor shaving is a service performed by licensed barbers to shave the faces of their clients. A straight razor is a long blade set in a handle that folds open and closed. Straight razors were the primary tool for manual (as opposed to electric) shaving until the rise of the “safety razor,” but are rising in popularity for shaving services.
