The beauty gurus at Spa DG Couture enhance their clients' natural beauty by augmenting features with technologically enhanced treatments such as permanent makeup or by making skin, hair, and nails radiate health with traditional spa and salon services inside a shop with racks laden with boutique apparel. A trained cosmetic tattoo artist outlines eyes, brows, and lips in a permanent layer of pigment to define sparse brows and keep patrons from having to apply lipstick in the middle of rush-hour traffic or breaking pogo-stick records. Stylists use hair and eyelash extensions to thicken natural manes and lashes, and aestheticians can accent clients' shining hair with facials to make visages glow and treatments to whiten teeth. After leaving the spa's treatment rooms, guests can peruse the selection of Juicy Couture, Chanel, and Xoxo clothes and accessories that add high-end flair to complement hair newly swept into a bouffant updo shaped like Louis XVI.
Licensed aesthetician Ashley Wiley dedicates her skin expertise to combating acne and rosacea. Her focused menu of personalized skincare services tackles skin imperfections with dermatological stratagems that, much like most buoyant paper airplane designs, hinge on years of ruthless research. A 45-minute consultation establishes the state of your epidermal union, and Ashley immediately recommends regimens to begin quelling unsightly anomalies in her care and on your own at home. Her basic acne treatment resembles a typical facial, but the custom blend of deep cleansing, exfoliation, and extractions eradicate dastardly oils at their source. Chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments are Ashley's two methods of intense exfoliation, and ionic footbaths deploy electrolysis to neutralize toxins and swallowed 9-volt batteries.
Cabana Skincare owner and operator Deborah Wood brings her clients’ inner beauty to the seeable surface, making use of pharmaceutical-grade products free from the tyranny of unnatural chemical preservatives. The salon’s classic cabana facial, an approximately 50-minute restorative treatment, begins with a deep skin cleansing followed by a gentle extraction of toxins and misplaced chewing gum. The treatment concludes with a Jello-ifying massage of the neck, shoulders, hands, and scalp, as a nourishing application of creams and balms freshens visages. Facials are customized to suit every client’s individual skin type, including those with sensitive skin, rosacea, or racing stripes.
Licensed aesthetician and laser technician Patricia Staggs teams up with a nurse and nurse practitioner to form a trio of dermal do-gooders, fending off blemishes, wrinkles, and other threats to balance complexions. After analyzing skin conditions and consulting with clients, experts recommend regimens of medical-grade chemical peels, microdermabrasions, and skincare treatments that use PCA Advanced Skin Care and SkinCeuticals products. To round out the clinic's spread of services, medical professionals administer doses of wisdom and helpful solutions such as Botox or Juvederm.
The resume of Dr. Marvin Borsand, president of The Body Sculpting Center, should put any prospective client at ease. He not only has been certified to perform breast augmentation since 1992, but also has been a principal investigator on a silicone study for the Institutional Review Board. Plus, he co-authored an article on breast augmentation for the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery and is the current president of the Arizona Society of Cosmetic Surgery.
Breast augmentation procedures are his specialty, and he spends a generous amount of time with each client as they consider treatment, doing his best to offer honest, realistic expectations of results. He understands that each person has their own reasons for seeking treatment, from the mother wanting to firm her breasts after pregnancy, to the cancer survivor seeking her former silhouette post-mastectomy.
Of course, Dr. Borsand, along with Drs. Bryan Friedman and Elizabeth Nikolic, perform an extensive selection of other procedures, including facial contouring, sinus surgery, and even vaginal rejuvenation. They have a med spa onsite as well, where clients can pursue less invasive treatments such as laser rejuvenation and hormone-replacement therapy.
At Rx (Skin) Lab, owner Angela Shcolnik and her team of skincare specialists showcase their skills as aestheticians, laser techs, and permanent-makeup artists as they restore youthful complexions within a peacefully quiet spa.

Technicians also enhance facial treatments using the NuFace microcurrent and LightStim LED light-therapy systems. Permanent-makeup sessions rely on a Nouveau Contour device, which defines facial features and camouflages scars shaped like expertly thrown Batman Pez dispensers.
