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.
At the Updegraff Clinic, Dr. Bryan Updegraff and his team of certified specialists tend to skin with dermatological services, allergy testing, and rejuvenating cosmetic treatments. The Candela Vbeam laser's gentle pulsed light penetrates deep into dermises to reduce skin woes, and a cooling mist soothes the skin as the laser works. Injections of Botox, Dysport, Restylane, and Perlane reduce the appearance of wrinkles more easily than spackling them with silly putty, and a variety of chemical and acid peels evict depleted skin cells to unleash an inner glow.
The certified medical professionals at Phoenix Skin Medical Surgical Group turn back time with medical-grade cosmetic services. Dr. Lee Laris spearheads the campaign to create beautiful visages across the city. Experienced in hair restoration and cosmetic surgery, he oversees a number of procedures including face lifts, hair rejuvenation services, earlobe repair, and tattoo removal. For tattoo removal procedures, technicians use the newly FDA-approved PicoSure Laser to quickly remove even the toughest of colors. For a minimally invasive improvement, the doctor can also inject a dermal filler such as Botox or Juvederm into the skin, erasing lines and wrinkles around the face. Laser treatments, meanwhile, also erase sagging skin, leg hair, and regrettable tattoos, revealing the clear skin or forgotten Picasso painting underneath.
The trained skin specialists at Scottsdale and Phoenix Dermatology simplify daily beauty routines, granting visages the power of permanent makeup through medical pigmentation. A permanent-makeup session begins with a licensed technician numbing the skin with a topical agent to ease any discomfort as clients lie back in a cushy chair. The digital pigmentation device uses fully sealed, one-time-use needle cartridges to deliver hypoallergenic, mineral-based pigment hygienically into the dermis. The permanently made up can often resume normal activities immediately after the treatment. Fill in eyebrows without fear of makeup fading at the gym, or wake up with perfectly drawn eyeliner and bawl beautifully at weddings with tears seemingly made of streak-free crystal.
Microgenesis is a safe, 60-minute facial treatment designed to beautify all skin types by combining the healing powers of Microdermabrasion (a $60 value) and Laser Genesis (a $175 value) treatments into one targeted, customized facial. A skilled aesthetician uses a fine sand tool to gently exfoliate the skin while suctioning dearly departed skin cells and old muffin crumbs from the face's outer layer. Resist the urge to eat the subsequently applied strawberry-spearmint mask, as it will erase the mask's topical benefits, which include improving skin tone, fixing broken capillaries, and hydrating the skin. Like a metaphor for life, once you think it's all over, a bright light in the form of a laser emerges from the mist to heat the upper dermis. This safe, comfortable method stimulates healthy collagen, reduces the appearance of pores, decreases wrinkles, and tightens loose hinges. The strawberry-spearmint Microgenesis process treats uneven skin tone and diffuses redness, leaving skin as silky as a dolphin torpedo.
Boasting an extensive medical background and the talents of her licensed, qualified, and friendly staff, Dr. Holy treats dermas with expertise and personal care. A treatment of Botox administers a series of injections into furrow-forging forehead muscles to smooth out wrinkles brought on by stress, time, and the brief forehead-crunching exercise fad of 2007. Treatments can take as little as 10 minutes to complete, and usually require no recovery time. Since the effects of a Botox injection can last up to three or four months, patients can enjoy a long-lasting rejuvenating treatment that is far more effective than leaping into your neighbor's above-ground wormhole or freezing every hourglass in the tri-county area.
