Sonoran Wellness Center's husband-and-wife chiropractic team Robert and Rebecca Kleckner blend chiropractic care, needle- or electric-stimulation-based acupuncture, and massage therapy to point patients on the path toward wellness. Doctor of Chiropractic Robert, a Guam native and Navy veteran who served during Operation Desert Shield, also uses his masters degree in biochemistry and extensive background in nutrition to boost overall wellness, and Doctor of Chiropractic Rebecca, a certified practitioner of the Webster Technique and a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, specializes in adjustments for pregnant women and kids. At the office, the chiropractic duo's three young children can occasionally be seen giving each other spinal adjustments and studying for the MCAT.
Most 12-year-olds have no idea what they want to do with their lives, but that’s when Maria DeNicola first found the inspiration to study electrolysis. As of today, she’s been doing electrolysis for more than 29 years and has even devised an all-new technique to attack full follicles with alternating current. DeNicola also eliminates unwanted body hair through laser hair removal or break-dance competitions on sandpaper.
With the help of her med spa team, which includes a registered nurse, DeNicola pampers faces with microdermabrasion and high-end products from La Maison Clayton Shagal and PCA Skin, as well as fights wrinkles with Botox injections. DeNicola happily serves members of the transgender community with her services and formerly acted as president of transgender support group A Rose.
Led by Dr. Sudeep Punia, a board-certified doctor and member of the National Society of Cosmetic Surgeons, the staff at Abloom Medical Spa takes aim at wrinkles, cellulite, unwanted body hair, and other skin imperfections to resurrect youth in all parts of the body. Technology by Matrix IR helps correct skin laxity, using heat to restore tone and smooth mild to moderate wrinkles, and SmartLipo body-sculpting lasers help diminish fat cells and elicit leaner forms with a quicker recovery time than traditional liposuction. Additional services include cosmetic injections, as well as facials that use Image Skincare products to target common problems including hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and milk mustaches.
Expertise reigns at Advanced Laser Clinics, part of a national chain that has performed more than 250,000 laser treatments. Technicians can calibrate the center's Lumenis LightSheer laser system to treat a range of hair and skin types, with each noninvasive session incurring minimal amounts of downtime afterward. Microdermabrasion treatments and laser tattoo removals lock mechanical arms to keep the topmost dermal layers as spotless as a Dalmatian spy disguised to infiltrate a Labrador militia. Staff members look past the surface with injectable services, which can hide minor blemishes or boost a client's metabolism.
Bridal packages at Indulge Med Spa cover even the smaller aspects of wedding prep—for example, outfitting a bride with her veil and accessories after her hair has been styled. This attention to detail typifies the spa's entire roster of services, from salon trims to dermal filler injections (which are only performed by the medical director).
Other highly trained staff members include aestheticians and nail artists. The nail techs can just as capably work with sculpted acrylic and gel nails as they can with natural nails or talons. As for the skincare side of the menu, all of the facials are customized to target specific conditions, such as signs of aging or acne. The med spa also offers body wraps, laser hair removal, and airbrush tans.
