After earning her master's Traditional Chinese Medicine in her native China, Dr. Zhen Hu emigrated to the Unite States, bringing with her knowledge of traditional acupuncture and ancient herbology. It wasn't long before she realized that the demand for such services in America rivaled that of her homeland. So, she opened her own herbal pharmacy and acupuncture practice, Hu Gi Acu-Herbal Center.
Since opening, she's incorporated a few more styles of holistic care into her business's repertoire. She now employs acupuncture not just as a means to relieve general symptoms, but in specific ways meant to help women's bodies bear the burdens of pregnancy. She also offers such tactile services as acupressure massage and reflexology??a form of foot massage purportedly capable of relieving tension throughout the entire body.
Dr. Robert J. Segal, a skin care specialist for over 23 years, treats patients with cosmetic or medical issues at the Dermatology Center. Sun-dried, lackadaisical face-skin will be scrubbed clean with DiamondTome microdermabrasion. Like greedy dwarves, diamond tips delve deep through the topsoil of epidermis, revealing the wonders beneath. Once stimulated by the gentle process of facial resurfacing, subdermal tissue regains the trampoline-like elasticity of its younger days, creating healthier looking skin and increasing the effectiveness of facial creams and future treatments. Medical students, interns, and residents from the University of Arizona are often present at the Dermatology Center, begging for money to buy a seat next to Richard Branson on his next trip to Mercury.
Within Specialists in Dermatology's 16,200-square-foot facility, board-certified physicians and physician assistants aim to maintain or beautify skin through general, cosmetic, and surgical procedures. Consultations help skin doctors and patients to craft general treatment plans that can stop the spread of conditions such as acne, hair loss, and polka dots. Spa-like cosmetic services treat the body's outer layer to chemical peels, and high-tech, non-invasive treatments zap off unwanted hair and freeze stubborn fat cells. The clinic's surgical team can also treat more serious issues such as skin cancer. Each of Specialists in Dermatology's physician assistants must pass the Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination to obtain a two-year certification and learn the 500 different ways to pronounce "freckle."
Under the guidance of Dr. Richard Burgmeier, the technicians at Perfect Skin Laser Center strive to offer the most advanced aesthetic treatments available. Their private clinic performs a variety of services using powerful beams, ranging from laser hair removal and light-based facials to noninvasive body contouring. Though laser treatments comprise the bulk of their procedures, they also specialize in products such as Botox and chemical peels. No matter what the method, Dr. Burgmeier and his staff aim to leave clients looking natural, like the majestic rocks of Mt. Rushmore.
As a doctor of naturopathic medicine, Lauri Moody helps her patients ward off the signs of aging with natural hormone therapies, custom weight-loss plans, and modern beauty treatments. She and the team at Scottsdale Skin and Laser use the body?s own platelet-rich plasma to rejuvenate faces and MicroPen treatments to stimulate the growth of supple new collagen and elastin. Laser-resurfacing treatments strip away fine lines, age spots, and acne scars better and more gently than just using sandpaper. Traditional facials on the other hand leave complexions cleansed and refreshed.
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?.
