Although they may be in the business of enhancing exteriors, the team members at Foothills New Image know that it’s the relationship with their patients that really matters. Led by Dr. Stuart Hetrick, the staff includes two trained medical-laser technicians dedicated to educating guests about their treatment and guiding them through every step of their aesthetic journey. What's more, customers can expect to always work with the same person throughout their course of treatment, firmly establishing a relationship that allows the specialists to be honest with the client about the reality of their expected results.
Dr. Hetrick––who is always on site––relies on more than 20 years of Botox-injection experience as he plumps fine lines and fills crow’s feet with the FDA-approved solution. The centers aestheticians come armed with a Palomar StarLux laser that gently removes unwanted hair, smoothes skin's texture, and banishes surface veins, whereas skin can be further brightened and lightened with four types of chemical peels customized to each patient's skin type and desired results.
For Doctor of Chiropractic Sophie Jacob, chiropractic medicine goes beyond the bones—it’s in her blood. Jacob grew up watching her father care for patients in the field for 30 years, deciding early on to follow in his footsteps and become a second-generation chiropractor. She originally helmed two practices in her hometown of Quebec City, Canada, before moving to sunny Arizona, where she performs treatments ranging from adjustments and custom orthotics to a variety of detoxification services.
Perhaps her most important mission, however, is assisting patients with their weight-loss and fitness goals. During an interview on KGUN 9's The Morning Blend, Dr. Jacob admitted to struggling with her own weight as a child, exemplifying empathy with regards to the physical and emotional impact of excess poundage. She has designed an alkaline-food-based weight-loss program to restore bodily balance via detoxifying protocols, supplements, and hormone testing. Dr. Jacob has also treated professional athletes and has competed in several athletic events, including triathlons, swimming matches, and marathons to the moon and back.
One wasn't enough for Radiant Complexions Dermatology Clinics—its team of doctors and nurse practitioners have established eight offices across Iowa and Arizona in the past decade. At each location, dermatologists preserve the health and unique character of all skin types with medical and cosmetic treatments. They can resolve such skin issues as acne, poison ivy, moles, and translucency, or tend to strictly aesthetic concerns from the outside in with chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermal fillers. Offices are equipped with advanced StarLux fractional lasers, which firm the skin by stimulating collagen production at the dermal layer, and VelaShape machines that use radio and light energies to reduce the appearance of cellulite and sagging skin. A scientifically formulated line of skincare products allow for at-home care with glycolic acid, retinol, and Vitamin C, and when necessary, the doctors will gladly make referrals to other practitioners for further treatment.

At Alpha Chiropractic & Physical Therapy, the team focuses on providing that personalized care to patients of all ages.

Inside a cedar-framed far infrared sauna, air molecules heat up to temperatures as high as 150 degrees, inducing sweat that can be equivalent to jogging 6–9 miles or piggybacking a sherpa up Mount Everest. Ear candling helps to reduce blockage of earwax, and relieves sinus pressure and other services help to cleanse the body of impurities.
Guided by licensed chiropractor Michael Temple, the health gurus at Physician?s Body and Face foster healthy, happy bodies with weight-loss programs, body wraps, and self-mastery technology. Those looking to overhaul out-of-shape physiques can participate in a one-on-one consultation, which utilizes advanced technology to analyze each client's physical makeup. The staff creates a custom diet and exercise stratagem based on the results of the consultation, which may reveal a need for weight-loss plans or hormone-, sugar-, or tightrope-balancing regimens. The center?s infrared sauna further encourages weight loss as heated light rays burrow deep into the body to purge fat cells of toxins. Physician?s Body and Face?s menu also boasts more advanced treatments, including exercising with oxygen, whole-body vibration, a biochemist-created herbal anticellulite body wrap, and ZenFrames, which help stimulate brain-wave activity with synchronized yet relaxing pulses of light and sound.
