Vitality Medical's staff of Doctors and Nurse Practitioners help to reveal shapely figures with weight-loss programs and body-contouring treatments. Specialists listen with an understanding ear as they steer patients onto the proper treatment path, answer questions, and keep tabs on their progress. As the med spa's marquee treatment, the HCG weight-loss program revolves around injections of an all-natural fat-burning solution that seeks to fire up the metabolism, combating unwanted adipose with a combination of vitamins and microscopic trebuchets. Vein therapy, VelaShape body contouring, and laser hair-removal treatments perfect the skin that covered former curves as Botox and FotoFacial treatments forge more youthful complexions.
Arrowhead Dermatology wrangles a team of board-certified dermatologists, nurse practitioners, and aestheticians—many of whom have worked in harrowing environments, such as burn wards, the air force, and Texas. Their services tend to fall into two categories: treatments that promote healthy skin and treatments with a more cosmetic slant. For the former, Arrowhead's dermatologists perform mole monitoring for skin cancers, offer treatment for warts, rashes, and cysts, and put together plans that help patients reduce acne outbreaks. On the cosmetic side, they'll team up with their aestheticians to perform laser hair removal, microdermabrasion treatments, and vestigial rhino-horn buffing.
Microgenesis is a safe, 60-minute facial treatment designed to beautify all skin types by combining the healing powers of Microdermabrasion (a $60 value) and Laser Genesis (a $175 value) treatments into one targeted, customized facial. A skilled aesthetician uses a fine sand tool to gently exfoliate the skin while suctioning dearly departed skin cells and old muffin crumbs from the face's outer layer. Resist the urge to eat the subsequently applied strawberry-spearmint mask, as it will erase the mask's topical benefits, which include improving skin tone, fixing broken capillaries, and hydrating the skin. Like a metaphor for life, once you think it's all over, a bright light in the form of a laser emerges from the mist to heat the upper dermis. This safe, comfortable method stimulates healthy collagen, reduces the appearance of pores, decreases wrinkles, and tightens loose hinges. The strawberry-spearmint Microgenesis process treats uneven skin tone and diffuses redness, leaving skin as silky as a dolphin torpedo.
Lose at Last Peoria's founder Leanne Fusner employs a friendly staff and a Lightsheer ET laser to diminish undesirable hair from multiple bodily locales. Like a hiccupping disco ball, the high-powered, customizable laser emits light in pulses to target, burn, and nearly painlessly remove hair roots. Make room for milk-moustache modeling practice with a freshly polished upper lip (a $55 value/treatment), or eliminate noise-obscuring fuzz from ears (a $55 value/treatment). The quick treatments require no post-procedure downtime, allowing newly smooth clients to return to practicing advanced Slip 'n Slide maneuvers within an hour.
The staff at All About Glamour Beauty Salon may be a diverse bunch, some bred locally in Arizona and others hailing from as far away as India, but they’re all committed to crafting personal style. Owner Lorena Suarez helms the crew as a board-certified hairstylist specializing in cuts and coloring while Juanita Salas is a licensed cosmetologist.
Together, they beautify clients with numerous services, including women’s and men’s haircuts, coloring treatments, hair extensions, and eyebrow threading. They also prep clients for special events, fashioning intricate gem-speckled updos for girls celebrating their quinceaneras or their Sweet 17.5 birthdays.
Visitors who pass by the prominent stone fountain in The Skin Suite's lobby can be forgiven for momentarily wondering if they've found the fountain of youth. That's because owner Kimbra, an aesthetician and laser technician with more than a decade of aesthetic experience, has assembled a skincare lineup heavy on advanced anti-aging treatments. During microdermabrasion sessions, she uses a DiamondTome skin-resurfacing system to exfoliate skin and reveal the healthy complexion beneath the surface. She also incorporates DermaQuest Skin Therapy and Tizo3 Protection products into four types of salicylic- and glycolic-acid chemical peels and five types of facials, one of which uses seasonal ingredients and natural fruit enzymes to leave skin smoother than a velveteen rabbit in a smoking jacket. For an extra edge in the fight against Father Time, Kimbra turns to resurfacing tools such as dermaplaning blades and microrollers.
