Under the direction of Dr. Scott Jenkins, a board-certified plastic surgeon, the staff at Sedona Skin Spa tends to aesthetic needs with lasers, skincare, and dermal fillers. Each staff member is certified in laser treatments that help to remove unwanted hair, resurface complexions, or tighten the skin. The well-equipped aestheticians also can perform facials, microdermabrasion, and peels using products from SkinMedica and Image Skincare. Meanwhile, a certified nurse injection specialist can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and furrows with FDA-approved injectables. The spa now offers Visia technology services- using this service, an aesthetician is able to offer a complexion analysis in less than a minute– providing insight into the different areas of health and appearance that can be affected by natural wear and tear.
Dr. Allen Van Beek, a board-certified plastic surgeon, has more than three decades of experience performing cosmetic and reconstructive plastic-surgery procedures. The medical director of Plastic Surgery Specialists understands that the quest for beauty is an ongoing one and works closely with each patient to correct physical flaws. His right-hand woman—Kristina Whitlock—is a certified medical licensed aesthetician. She assists in performing non-medical procedures like microdermabrasion and chemical treatments plus a selection of IPL laser treatments that help reduce unwanted hair and diminish the appearance of sun damage.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Jonathan Witzke earned his stripes in surgical centers and hospitals before becoming the namesake of Witzke Plastic Surgery, where he and his savvy staff perform an array of invasive and noninvasive procedures. Cosmetic concerns fade with simple IPL facials, Botox injections, liposuction, and breast augmentation procedures. For injured hands, certified therapist Joan Collins acts on more than two decades of experience with procedures that aim to quell carpal tunnel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, or a thumb war injury.
Wide, youthful-looking eyes free of puffy bags. Smoother skin. A taut physique free of cellulite. These are just a few of the physical upgrades offered at Shu Cosmetic Surgery, a practice helmed by medical director Dr. Steven Shu, his physician assistant Katie McClellan, and his team of medical aestheticians. Visitors to the modern, inviting practice can choose from treatments such as minimally invasive liposuction, natural breast augmentation, and mini face-lifts that lift away deep fine lines. At an onsite med spa, the physician assistant and medical aestheticians perform nonsurgical treatments including chemical peels and laser hair removal.
Intense pulsed light. Ultrasound. Salicylic acid. These aren’t just terms you’d find in a science textbook; they’re also elements that SkinOvation MedSpa’s licensed aestheticians use to bring out skin’s beauty. With waves of intense pulsed light, for instance, they can permanently eradicate unwanted hair on the face, bikini line, or underarms, or gradually diminish signs of aging during photofacials. They also restore youthfulness to skin with salicylic, lactic, or glycolic chemical peels, or wield a microdermabrasion wand to buff away dead cells and notes-to-self scrawled on your forehead. The center’s multifunctional ultrasonic treatment speeds up blood circulation and stimulates the nerve system, resulting in improved skin texture and color.
Dr. Patrick S. Carney, who boasts more than 20 years of skin-care expertise, leads an experienced staff of skinologists into the war for attention-grabbing radiance. Each visit to the pristine, welcoming clinic begins with a thorough assessment of the customer’s skin and complexion, allowing for the proper selection of light, laser, and voodoo-spell therapies to be customized for an effective treatment. A 30-minute IPL photofacial uses intense broad-spectrum pulsed light to treat skin conditions such as sun damage, broken capillaries, paintball indentations, irregular pigmentation, clingy barnacles, fine lines, superglued Halloween masks, and rosacea. By treating the areas of the skin with excess pigmentation, photofacial treatments result in healthy, luminous, younger-looking skin that mesmerizes passersby. For maximum results, IPL photofacial treatments are recommended in a series of three to six treatments. While side effects such as swelling, alteration in pigment, and blisters may occur, Skin Speaks takes all possible safety precautions to prevent them.
