The resume of Dr. Marvin Borsand, president of The Body Sculpting Center, should put any prospective client at ease. He not only has been certified to perform breast augmentation since 1992, but also has been a principal investigator on a silicone study for the Institutional Review Board. Plus, he co-authored an article on breast augmentation for the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery and is the current president of the Arizona Society of Cosmetic Surgery.
Breast augmentation procedures are his specialty, and he spends a generous amount of time with each client as they consider treatment, doing his best to offer honest, realistic expectations of results. He understands that each person has their own reasons for seeking treatment, from the mother wanting to firm her breasts after pregnancy, to the cancer survivor seeking her former silhouette post-mastectomy.
Of course, Dr. Borsand, along with Drs. Bryan Friedman and Elizabeth Nikolic, perform an extensive selection of other procedures, including facial contouring, sinus surgery, and even vaginal rejuvenation. They have a med spa onsite as well, where clients can pursue less invasive treatments such as laser rejuvenation and hormone-replacement therapy.

They then can dress them up with more than 200 fragrant oils, botanicals, milks, and glitters. Staffers allow customers to sample every product in-store and provide wells of already-concocted recipes to help spark ideas. Should customers mix a masterpiece, the staff record recipes and keep them on file to recreate at the customer’s bidding.
Evolve Skin and Laser Center's certified nurse, laser technicians, and aestheticians help to transform epidermises into smoother, rejuvenated versions of themselves with the aid of advanced Palomar laser systems, including the StarLux 300 and the StarLux 1540. During hair-removal treatments, a trained laser technician directs a noninvasive laser over legs, underarms, and other areas to transform grasslands into expanses of smooth skin by permanently disabling hair follicles. When a laser specialist turns the microbeams of the StarLux 1540 on stretch-marked skin, the light beams cause minute coagulations in the skin to jumpstart the body's natural healing system and erase markings. Other services on Evolve's menu include microdermabrasion and beauty injections of Botox, Restylane, Radiesse, and Juv?derm.
Years ago, miners in Eastern Europe first discovered the therapeutic benefits of salt: Hours of exposure in salt mines was said to alleviate such respiratory ailments as asthma, bronchitis, and more. Salt Chalet Arizona imitates the salt mines of Eastern Europe. Inside the facility?s two treatment rooms, layers of salt extracted from the Dead Sea coat the surfaces from floor to ceiling. Amid calming light and ambient music, visitors lounge back in comfy chairs and breathe in the salt, which has healing ions that can help clear out breathing passages and reduce inflammation in the lungs. With respect to respiratory ailments, the relaxing salt treatments provide a noninvasive alternative to drugs, undergoing surgery, or bottling and inhaling the breath of a healthy friend.
