Licensed aesthetician and laser technician Patricia Staggs teams up with a nurse and nurse practitioner to form a trio of dermal do-gooders, fending off blemishes, wrinkles, and other threats to balance complexions. After analyzing skin conditions and consulting with clients, experts recommend regimens of medical-grade chemical peels, microdermabrasions, and skincare treatments that use PCA Advanced Skin Care and SkinCeuticals products. To round out the clinic's spread of services, medical professionals administer doses of wisdom and helpful solutions such as Botox or Juvederm.
Licensed aesthetician Ashley Wiley dedicates her skin expertise to combating acne and rosacea. Her focused menu of personalized skincare services tackles skin imperfections with dermatological stratagems that, much like most buoyant paper airplane designs, hinge on years of ruthless research. A 45-minute consultation establishes the state of your epidermal union, and Ashley immediately recommends regimens to begin quelling unsightly anomalies in her care and on your own at home. Her basic acne treatment resembles a typical facial, but the custom blend of deep cleansing, exfoliation, and extractions eradicate dastardly oils at their source. Chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments are Ashley's two methods of intense exfoliation, and ionic footbaths deploy electrolysis to neutralize toxins and swallowed 9-volt batteries.
The beauty gurus at Spa DG Couture enhance their clients' natural beauty by augmenting features with technologically enhanced treatments such as permanent makeup or by making skin, hair, and nails radiate health with traditional spa and salon services inside a shop with racks laden with boutique apparel. A trained cosmetic tattoo artist outlines eyes, brows, and lips in a permanent layer of pigment to define sparse brows and keep patrons from having to apply lipstick in the middle of rush-hour traffic or breaking pogo-stick records. Stylists use hair and eyelash extensions to thicken natural manes and lashes, and aestheticians can accent clients' shining hair with facials to make visages glow and treatments to whiten teeth. After leaving the spa's treatment rooms, guests can peruse the selection of Juicy Couture, Chanel, and Xoxo clothes and accessories that add high-end flair to complement hair newly swept into a bouffant updo shaped like Louis XVI.
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.
Though Dr. Thomas G. Kotoske is board certified in facial-plastic, reconstructive, total-body cosmetic, and head and neck surgery, it's his deep appreciation for aesthetic and artistic beauty that truly drives him. Just as he enjoys restoring vintage cars and collecting fine art, Dr. Kotoske enjoys helping patients improve their confidence and achieve their ultimate aesthetic potential. He accomplishes this by calling upon knowledge and skills acquired while earning his degree in osteopathic medicine and serving as chief resident at a level-one trauma center, where he received extensive training in facial-plastic and trauma-reconstructive surgery. He has studied with renowned cosmetic surgeons and liposuction experts, and he has discussed the latest industry advancements on several television programs.
At Body by Kotoske, the doctor performs procedures that range from tummy tucks to the Quicklift—an innovative outpatient surgery that, like a shy census taker, is minimally invasive. A licensed aesthetician and registered nurse, meanwhile, combat signs of aging with skincare treatments, dermal fillers, and permanent makeup at the center's med spa.
Kerisma Centre for Medical Aesthetics is uniquely poised to make women feel more confident and beautiful, thanks to the dedication of medical director Dr. Keri Sweeten and her clinical staff. To inform her aesthetic and weight-loss treatments, Dr. Sweeten combines her background as a board-certified gynecologist and a fellow of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists with her experience as a member of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. She even shares her knowledge outside the clinic by maintaining teaching appointments at several Arizona hospitals. Her compassionate care made her a 2011 and 2012 winner of the Best Of Greater Cities award.
Together with a registered nurse and a licensed paramedical aesthetician, Dr. Sweeten transforms faces and figures with services ranging from nonablative skin-resurfacing treatments to laser-, IPL-, and sclerotherapy-based vein removal. The team contours bodies via individualized medical-weight-loss plans and SlimLipo laser lipo-sculpting, leaving patients ready to fit into favorite swimsuits or childhood Halloween costumes.
Alongside his certified staff, Dr. James Vogt sends the signs of aging running scared with a slate of medical-grade aesthetic treatments. After sitting down with each client, Dr. Vogt’s gets down to the business of delivering any number of palliatives, including laser hair removal, Botox injections, toe-fungus removal, and cellulite reduction using FDA-approved VelaShape technology. His medical practice limits the number of clients it takes on, ensuring that each guest gets more personal attention than a seal at a polar-bear convention.
