Board-certified plastic surgeon and medical director of Neos Med Spa, Dr. Shaun Parson, insists that his licensed medical staff undergo intensive training in both the technology and administration of all treatments. This expert training, combined with a catlike fascination with lasers, has led to the center?s specialization in laser procedures, including hair removal, spider-vein removal, custom skin-rejuvenation treatments to treat acne, and anti-aging treatments. A detailed consultation precedes each treatment, helping technicians develop a custom plan of action that optimizes results. Neos MedSpa also offers Botox and Dysport injections, and a medically supervised weight-loss program that supplements a very low-calorie diet with HCG injections to help patients lose one to two pounds a day.
It may be set in the buzzing center of historic Old Town Scottsdale, but Best Face Skin & Makeup couldn't be farther removed from the hustle and bustle happening just outside. Clients leave their cares at the door and enter the hushed environment of this upscale beauty spa, where cushy chairs and a welcoming staff await to cater to their every pampering need. Facials feature organic products to ensure skin's health is never compromised, while waxing services depend upon a soy-based wax, which is gentle enough for those with sensitive skin. To make sure clients leave looking and feeling their best, the spa also offers eyelash extensions and professional makeup lessons using Youngblood mineral makeup, which won't clog pores the way many cement-based makeups do.
North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic's team of aestheticians and laser technicians—led by board-certified naturopathic physician Dr. Jessica Anderson—not only offers an expansive list of anti-aging skincare services, but also makes sure clients get paired with the right one. The staff members precede each service with a consultation to determine a customized procedure plan catered to the client's skin type, beauty needs, and the vote of every pore. During treatments, clients can relax in sunny, private rooms surrounded by framed artwork hanging from earth-toned walls. Dr. Anderson herself performs all injections and brings her clients a wealth of knowledge about naturopathy, noninvasive therapies, and homeopathic skincare solutions.
Beneath the shine of 20 Lounge Nail Bar and Boutique, a singular purpose pushes it forward: to bring high-end luxury to the masses. Like a beauty-conscious cousin of Johnny Appleseed, the ever-expanding franchise has planted locations throughout California and Arizona, always pampering its clients with the same menu of services. Therapists, for instance, perform facials using Dermalogica's MicroZone products, which wash away acne, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, or exfoliate the skin. Mani-pedis, on the other hand, polish and dress nails in a rainbow of available colors, rendering their surfaces complementary to freshly waxed legs or accessories such as a freshly opened box of crayons.
With 26 years as an aesthetician, cosmetologist, and registered electrologist under her belt, Denise Hurley knows more than a few skin-refining tricks. The specialist calls on a plentiful repertoire of facials, peels, laser treatments, and permanent cosmetics to revive her clients’ complexions, tailoring each to their unique skin types and underlying issues. A medical director is on staff at her clinic to oversee all her services, which run the gamut from a simple cleansing of clogged facial pores to treatments with a Depilase laser that help remove spider veins and the Charlotte’s Web fan fiction they leave behind.
Working with the notion that the eyebrows define the face, the threading specialists at Beautif-Eye Studios take care to shape brows into alluring arches without irritating the skin. The threading artists use a pair of tightly wound strands to pluck out stray hairs instead of using waxes or security guards to forcefully evict them. For further beautification, classic European facials brighten skin with a customized blend of products, and oxygenating facials refresh and awaken dull skin by stimulating circulation. Massages of Swedish, deep tissue, and aromatherapy modalities relieve stress, while facial peels hydrate and mend damaged skin.
