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.
Dr. Arthur Seidner has been going toe to toe with foot ailments for nearly 40 years. He draws on a wealth of experience to operate his private practice in Sun City, where every day he helps patients conquer heel pain, warts, ingrown toenails, and other conditions that make walking a chore. Dr. Seidner specializes in nonsurgical solutions to foot problems, and one of his most advanced treatments involves the Cutera GenesisPlus laser. This noninvasive implement freshens feet by zapping away fungi and tiny caterpillars disguising themselves as sixth toes.
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.
Three points of focus exist at Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center: ophthalmology, optometry, and cosmetic surgery. Under the guidance of medical director Emilio M. Justo, M.D., the medical staff works to improve the vision of their patients, as well as assisting them in achieving aesthetic goals. The Arizona state–licensed and AAAHC-accredited outpatient surgery center allows Dr. Justo, his team, and their band of surgical elves to care for patients within the comfortable confines of their own facility, eliminating the need to journey to a hospital.
The therapists at Arizona Colon Hydrotherapy & Wellness Center promote whole-body wellness with colon hydrotherapy, far infrared-sauna sessions, and ear candling. Helmed by I-ACT, G-PACT, and National Board-certified therapists, colon-hydrotherapy sessions help to clean the colon and assist with maladies such as constipation, parasites, candida, and indigestion.
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.
