For some, a few quick swipes of eyeliner and lipstick are enough to help them face the day. For others, it doesn't even begin to make them feel beautiful, or, at the very least, is just tiresome to deal with day after day. At EverLasting Beauty by CYNDI, Cyndi Gerlach works with clients to create more lasting beauty solutions, whether through the application of permanent makeup or removal of acne scars, stretch marks, and tattoos. She is a certified permanent makeup and paramedical makeup artist, using MRI-safe pigments and FDA-approved equipment to do anything from filling in sparse brows to re-creating full brows lost to alopecia. She can also use her wide range of pigments to reconstruct areolas or fill in areas unpigmented by vitiligo.
Wrinkles don't fare well at Phoenix Laser & Rejuvenation Center. Blame it on the center's photofacials, microdermabrasion treatments, chemical peels, and Botox injections, which are regularly prescribed for patients who want more youthful-looking complexions. The face isn't the only part of the body that receives attention, though. The staff also offers noninvasive laser treatments for removing hair and spider veins.
The physician-supervised staff at American Photon Lipo Centers, which also serves the Chicago area, offers noninvasive alternatives to liposuction and facelifts. Using BioSculpt technology's red light, they can shrink fat cells during BioSculpt Lipo treatments or tighten skin during BioLift and BioRejuv treatments. The FDA-approved treatments yield similar results to their surgical equals, and they do so without the threat of scars, downtime, or hospital-room neighbors who lie awake plotting to steal your jello.
With locations across the Phoenix area, Mountain Park Health Center strives to serve the underserved with affordable pediatric care, dental, and cancer screenings. Sprinters can show sweat-support for the new Goodyear location by galloping at the grand opening, beginning at 7 a.m. The five-hour ribbon-cutting gala includes a 5K walk/run, a 1K sprint for kids, two children's face-painting tickets, and four tickets for inflatable games, which create a feeling of camaraderie with Neil Armstrong and Michael Jackson simultaneously. Groupon buyers may roll into their VIP parking spot moments before the event and leave with a wealth of information gleaned from a complimentary tour of the Goodyear clinic, as well an event T-shirt.
Kelly Hannigan, RN, of NeckliftAZ.com
is a veteran in the world of skin-smoothing injections. To promote the growth of the body's collagen production, Kelly and a fellow colleague created the The Vampira Facial and PRP- Natural Facelift. For more than 14 years, her aesthetic repertoire has expanded to include skin resurfacing, chemical peels, and a bevy of other skin-clarifying techniques that leave complexions baby soft and adult durable. She created NewportNeckLift to focus on smoothing rough-textured and sagging skin around the neck, which can lose elasticity due to age, weight loss, sun damage, and other factors. This treatment encourages collagen regeneration and skin-tightening, and can be done in one sitting with little downtime. The same Portrait PSR3 treatments have been developed by Kelly to make remarkable changes to stretchmarked skin.
Elizabeth Trevino, licensed aesthetician and skincare educator, polishes her patrons’ appearances with facials, body waxing, and eyelash-extension services. Specializing in Xtreme eyelash extensions, Trevino carefully selects varying lengths and thicknesses of faux lashes to blend seamlessly with natural sets, bonding them lash by lash to create volume and length. Water-resistant Xtreme lashes hug lids for up to six weeks of mascara-free winking, eventually shedding from natural lashes during their growth cycle or after riding a motorcycle over a bonfire. During skin-treatment sessions, Trevino educates clients about skin types and proper care while smoothing faces with brightening microdermabrasion sessions, moisturizing hydra facials, and pumpkin peels that brighten expressions more effectively than dipping one’s face in wood varnish.
