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.

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.
Since 1979, Bruce Kennedy has leapt from airplanes more than 5,900 times. He opened Skydive Iowa in 1991, turning his love of thrilling free falls and bird's-eye views into a business. He and his team of USPA-licensed instructors teach visitors safety concepts and skydiving techniques before accompanying them into the air. At a height of 3,000 feet, skydivers leap for tandem or solo jumps. Jumpers drift above the earth for up to five minutes before a radio guides them toward a soft landing. Many of Skydive Iowa's instructors specialize in videography and can capture photographs or videos of skydivers for posterity.
