Chrissy, the registered nurse at Forever Flawless Medical Aesthetics and Laser, relies on her medical know-how as she administers beauty treatments that zap wrinkles and unwanted body hair. Her arsenal includes the Alma Harmony Pixel laser, which resurfaces complexions and increases collagen production, and an IPL device that improves pigmented blemishes with flashes of light. Beauty injections inhibit forehead furrows for months on end, and dermal fillers plump up thin lips, removing the need to get surgery or compete in boxing matches without a mouth guard.
At its three Phoenix-area locations, Arizona Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery Centers host a team of experienced doctors. The veteran providers deal with skin troubles ranging from psoriasis to acne, focusing especially on skin cancers that can arise in the sun-soaked southwest. They round out their vital care with cosmetic services such as Botox and Juvederm injections and hair-restoration services, which help correct baldness inherited from maternal genetics.
Vitality Medical's staff of Doctors and Nurse Practitioners help to reveal shapely figures with weight-loss programs and body-contouring treatments. Specialists listen with an understanding ear as they steer patients onto the proper treatment path, answer questions, and keep tabs on their progress. As the med spa's marquee treatment, the HCG weight-loss program revolves around injections of an all-natural fat-burning solution that seeks to fire up the metabolism, combating unwanted adipose with a combination of vitamins and microscopic trebuchets. Vein therapy, VelaShape body contouring, and laser hair-removal treatments perfect the skin that covered former curves as Botox and FotoFacial treatments forge more youthful complexions.
Himanshu H. Shukla, MD founded C.A.I., a Cardiovascular and Arrhythmia Institute with just a few resources but a lot of questions about the heart. Why does the heart speed up? Why does it slow down? Why does it beat irregularly?
Even after receiving his doctorate, Dr. Shukla’s desire to learn more about the heart persisted. He completed electrophysiology training at the University of Oklahoma and cardiovascular medicine training at the University of Missouri-Columbia. His work was recognized when he won the American Heart Association’s Cardiology Fellows Forum of Excellence Award in 2003. But for Dr. Shukla, who lectures at podiums across the country and continually has his work published in medical journals, recognition is secondary to fostering cardiovascular health.
At C.A.I., he and his experienced team of physicians partner with patients and their family physicians to provide trusted, technologically advanced, and customizable treatments. The team treats everything from cardiac disease and heart-rhythm disorders to removing varicose veins and out-of-style toes rings.
"My first guest is a cosmetic surgeon who is an expert on quick-fix makeovers," Montel Williams announced to his studio audience on a fall day in 2007. "Please welcome Dr. Sofia Rubbani to the show!" After her introduction, Dr. Rubbani proceeded to straighten out a woman's crooked nose with dermal fillers, beef up a pair of thin lips, and erase spider veins with a laser, all in a clinic set up backstage.
Hailing from New York, Dr. Rubbani continues to tout the benefits of these speedy, nonsurgical procedures at Tucson Cosmetics. She expertly injects solutions, such as fillers, collagen, and plasma, to iron out facial wrinkles with minimal downtime. She also makes use of Thermage's radio-frequency energies to tighten skin and send secret messages to truckers. For those seeking more dramatic results, Dr. Rubbani surgically alters droopy eyelids, removes moles, and mends torn earlobes.
Board-certified plastic surgeon and medical director of Neos Med Spa, Dr. Shaun Parson, insists that his licensed medical staff undergo intensive training in both the technology and administration of all treatments. This expert training, combined with a catlike fascination with lasers, has led to the center?s specialization in laser procedures, including hair removal, spider-vein removal, custom skin-rejuvenation treatments to treat acne, and anti-aging treatments. A detailed consultation precedes each treatment, helping technicians develop a custom plan of action that optimizes results. Neos MedSpa also offers Botox and Dysport injections, and a medically supervised weight-loss program that supplements a very low-calorie diet with HCG injections to help patients lose one to two pounds a day.
