With locations across the Phoenix area, Mountain Park Health Center strives to serve the underserved with affordable pediatric care, dental, and cancer screenings. Sprinters can show sweat-support for the new Goodyear location by galloping at the grand opening, beginning at 7 a.m. The five-hour ribbon-cutting gala includes a 5K walk/run, a 1K sprint for kids, two children's face-painting tickets, and four tickets for inflatable games, which create a feeling of camaraderie with Neil Armstrong and Michael Jackson simultaneously. Groupon buyers may roll into their VIP parking spot moments before the event and leave with a wealth of information gleaned from a complimentary tour of the Goodyear clinic, as well an event T-shirt.
Owned and operated by board-certified physicians, Dermacare Cosmetic Surgery enhances natural beauty with both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. Dr. Gael DeRouin handles the surgeries that lift faces, tighten sagging eyelids, and reconstruct noses to better conceal fibs. Dr. Pamela DeRouin tends to less invasive aesthetic needs by thwarting blemishes and wrinkles with chemical peels, medical microdermabrasion, and blue visible-light treatments. She also wields Genesis and Titan lasers to help clear the skin of redness, acne scars, and stretch marks.
One wasn't enough for Radiant Complexions Dermatology Clinics—its team of doctors and nurse practitioners have established 11 offices across Iowa and Arizona in the past decade. At each location, dermatology specialists preserve the health and unique character of all skin types with medical and cosmetic treatments. They can resolve all types of skin problems, and 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.
Arrowhead Dermatology wrangles a team of board-certified dermatologists, nurse practitioners, and aestheticians—many of whom have worked in harrowing environments, such as burn wards, the air force, and Texas. Their services tend to fall into two categories: treatments that promote healthy skin and treatments with a more cosmetic slant. For the former, Arrowhead's dermatologists perform mole monitoring for skin cancers, offer treatment for warts, rashes, and cysts, and put together plans that help patients reduce acne outbreaks. On the cosmetic side, they'll team up with their aestheticians to perform laser hair removal, microdermabrasion treatments, and vestigial rhino-horn buffing.
"A soothing, comfortable atmosphere is very important," says Dr. Manoj Sharma in a video on his website. It’s a sentiment he took to heart when designing his office, where walls painted in calming earth tones surround comfortable dental chairs. The comfort extends to his use of advanced technology, such as the ViziLite—which illuminates healthy tissue in a white light and shows cancerous tissue as dark during cancer screenings. Aside from improving smiles with whitening treatments and crowns, Dr. Sharma also helps prevent snoring with Snore Guard, a custom mouthpiece that keeps airways open and soft tissue from vibrating at levels that attract bears.
A quartet of experienced physicians provides patients with advanced therapies at Optima Vein Care’s three locations. Recognizing that varicose veins affect numerous men, women, and incredibly lifelike portraits, the specialists aim to safely and efficiently tend to each visitor. Treatments address spider veins, varicose veins, and blood clots, and range from noninvasive compression therapy to more intensive phlebectomy, the process of removing of veins through tiny incisions.
The state-certified medical-laser personnel at AZ Laser Skin Rejuvenation Center—which counts a board-certified doctor and registered nurse among its staff—use FDA-approved Candela GentleYag laser technology and dermal fillers in their quest to help beauty blossom and flourish. Laser hair- and vein-reduction treatments reinvent the skin's appearance, and crystal microdermabrasion sweeps away dead skin cells to make room for the radiant complexion waiting just below. The staff also administer careful injections of Botox and Restylane to help fill in unflattering folds on the face or turn wrinkled raisins back into plums.
