Alara Med & Day Spa's comfortable atmosphere and massage and beauty treatments de-stress bodies. The knowledgeable staff of beautifiers includes aestheticians, massage therapists, laser technicians, cosmetologists, and more. Each treatment room is draped with fresh linens and modern equipment, ready to house services such as a 60-minute aromatherapy massage, which calms and soothes with scented oils ($85), and the Epicuren signature facial, which stimulates cell metabolism to tighten the skin, improving texture and tone ($85).
As a licensed massage therapists, Lara Traynor and MaryJo Olson take the reins at Desert Sky Healing with firm, well-moisturized grips. Nestled among a bevy of soothing services sits the hydrating body wrap. Hot towels seal in pure avocado oil to treat dry, flaky, sun-damaged, or guacamole-craving skin, before a custom scalp and face massage puts tension in a sleeper hold. The exfoliation and hydration synergy treatment, which includes the hydrating body wrap, blasts arid epidermises with a moisturizing tidal wave, starting with a preliminary salt scrub, dry brushing, and full-body massage. The nourishing scrub increases the effectiveness of the hydration stage by first clearing bodies of glued-on plastic wrap and the layer of dead skin cells that repels vital minerals and compliments.
At Rejuvenation Medical Spa, Dr. Michael J. Depenbusch guides his technicians and aestheticians as they revitalize clientele with medical-grade products from Latisse, Jane Iredale skincare, and SkinMedica. The facility’s spa treatments, including microdermabrasion and dermaplaning, help reveal a youthful gleam in clients of all ages. Services such as laser treatments, dermal fillers, and lip enhancements also do their part, reducing and removing wrinkles so they can return to adding character to poorly pressed pants.
Phoenix CoolSculpting's licensed doctors help reduce unwanted bodily bulges with the FDA-cleared Zeltiq cool-sculpting system, which has garnered a slew of press for its noninvasive, fat-freezing cryolipolysis process. After a free consultation to determine patient eligibility, a medical staff member will glide the Zeltiq device along undesirable fat regions during the 1–2 hour procedure. Two cooling panels firmly grasp the treatment areas as the machine precisely freezes fat cells, leaving skin undamaged and ready for icicle tribute tattoos. The body then naturally eliminates the frozen particles, resulting in a possible 20%–25% fat reduction after one visit; results can be seen as early as three weeks after the treatment, and, like growing a magical beanstalk, more dramatic effects can occur after 2–4 months. Patients can read or listen to music during the process and can keep long-term results stable by maintaining their weight, normal diet, and exercise routine.
Deseret Aesthetic & Lifestyle Institute medical director Dr. Gregory Allen is a skin specialist who has contributed to FDA research and the FDA approval process. He now shares his epidermal expertise with licensed aestheticians and laser technicians as they apply permanent makeup and perform peels and facials. High-tech equipment abounds at the center, from a VeinGogh Ohmic Thermolysis System for eliminating spider veins to a CO2 laser for reducing wrinkles. Aestheticians rely on skincare products from Derma MD and Obagi, which soothe skin so that clients don't have to cut eyeholes in a receiving blanket and wear it as a mask. An elegant vibe radiates from the spa’s cream-and-black motif, which clients first encounter in a waiting room lined with cushy suede chairs.
