Diamond Body Art’s tattoo artists adorn bodies with tattoos done in a variety of styles. Alfonso specializes in realistic portraits done in black and gray. He can make anything look real, including a horror tattoo of Frankenstein’s monster or of a demon leaving the bathroom without washing his hands. Whether he’s creating a realistic bird or a cartoon character such as Mini Mouse, Dominic infuses the skin with bold colors. And Michael focuses on drawing clean lines when crafting Polynesian or Japanese-style tattoos.
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.
Tattoo parlors and barbershops are in Adam Dorsett's blood. After inheriting his great uncle and aunt's 1930s tattoo equipment and barber tools, he entered a tattooing apprenticeship. With 3.5 years of instruction and experience, Dorsett opened Electric Haven Tattoo & Barber Shop and invented High Life Pomade—a classic workingman's hair grease that keeps strands in place by never saying “I love you.”
All of Dorsett's tattoo artists completed apprenticeships up to four years long and draw on that experience as they craft masterpieces such as portraits and old-school tats. His barbers trim dos and facial hair the old-fashioned way—with straight razors and hot towels. While they wait, barber customers of age may sip on complimentary tap beer. To ensure safety, Dorsett makes sure his staff is certified in CPR, first aid, and blood-borne pathogens. They also participate in monthly sterilizer spore testing and proper biowaste removal.
With more than 1,000 liposuctions and facelifts under his belt, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jose L. Robledo knows one thing for sure: nobody wants that “worked over” look. That’s why at Arizona Laser & Skin he and his team aim to make wrinkles and unwanted fat disappear with natural products and advanced techniques that rely on the skin’s innate healing ability. Minimally invasive procedures such as the Endotine Ribbon face and neck lift and AquaShape body-contouring system are performed alongside noninvasive beauty techniques such as FDA approved Viora cellulite-reduction and skin-tightening treatments. Micro-current facials get skin smoother than a dolphin’s raincoat by stimulating and thus helping to strengthen the facial muscles. In addition to emphasizing natural-looking results, the team prides itself on looking after the safety of its patients. A consultation precedes each treatment, during which clients find out if procedures are right for them, ask questions, and address any special needs.
Deseret Aesthetic & Lifestyle Institute medical director Dr. Gregory Allen is a skin specialist who has contributed to FDA research and the FDA approval process. He now shares his epidermal expertise with licensed aestheticians and laser technicians as they apply permanent makeup and perform peels and facials. High-tech equipment abounds at the center, from a VeinGogh Ohmic Thermolysis System for eliminating spider veins to a CO2 laser for reducing wrinkles. Aestheticians rely on skincare products from Derma MD and Obagi, which soothe skin so that clients don't have to cut eyeholes in a receiving blanket and wear it as a mask. An elegant vibe radiates from the spa’s cream-and-black motif, which clients first encounter in a waiting room lined with cushy suede chairs.
At Rejuvenation Medical Spa, Dr. Michael J. Depenbusch uses his more than 20 years of experience to guide his technicians and aestheticians as they revitalize clientele with medical-grade products from Latisse, Jane Iredale skincare, and SkinMedica. The facility’s spa treatments, including microdermabrasion and dermaplaning, help reveal a youthful gleam in clients of all ages. Services such as laser treatments, dermal fillers, Allergan Botox, and lip enhancements also do their part, reducing and removing wrinkles so they can return to adding character to poorly pressed pants.
