As a doctor of naturopathic medicine, Lauri Moody helps her patients ward off the signs of aging with natural hormone therapies, custom weight-loss plans, and modern beauty treatments. She and the team at Scottsdale Skin and Laser use the body’s own platelet-rich plasma to rejuvenate faces and MicroPen treatments to stimulate the growth of supple new collagen and elastin. Laser-resurfacing treatments strip away fine lines, age spots, and acne scars better and more gently than just using sandpaper. Traditional facials on the other hand leave complexions cleansed and refreshed.
At Arizona Lipo Light, Doctor of Chiropractic Jeri E. Nardone, who has been serving the community for 20 years, helps patients find a long-lasting, non-surgical alternative to traditional lipo suction. The noninvasive procedure requires neither scalpels nor downtime, as it uses only LED light energy and the body’s own circulation system. LED light targets fat cells in problem areas such as the waist, hips, thighs, and arms and permeates the cell walls, allowing fatty acids to escape. The released contents are then easily burned off as energy during exercise and the emptied cells are able to shrink in size.
Klara Kalemkerides hails from Athens, Greece—a city known for its philosophical heritage and classical beauty. After moving to the U.S. 40 years ago, she earned multiple esthetics degrees, and transitioned to owning her own spas in the late 80s. The veteran esthetician's most recently venture is Skin Care by Klara, where she cultivates a European spa ambiance and offers cutting-edge treatments.
Her spa features Old World decor and lockers stocked with robes and slippers to encourage clients to slip into relaxation. In private chambers, estheticians beautify clients with services that range from facials to laser hair removal. They also enhance faces and dull jack-o-lanterns with Jane Iredale makeup, mineral-based products that combine sunscreen with pharmaceutical grade vitamins and antioxidants. And once clients have completed their treatments, the staff offers skincare education and product suggestions so clients can continue reaping the benefits of their beauty treatments at home.
Radiant, more youthful skin is often the goal for clients who visit Jouvence Skin Spa. And with an array of non-invasive cosmetic treatments—from laser skin treatments to permanent makeup—the spa staff are well-equipped to help those goals become a reality. Certified laser technician and licensed medical skincare specialist Sheron Turas, clinical aesthetician Sandra Hass, and certified permanent makeup artist Julia Ismailova are all dedicated to bringing out their clients' natural beauty. They might use those facials or skincare procedures include Dermaplaning, chemical peels, and IPL photofacials.
At Scottsdale Skin Rejuvenation, experienced aestheticians Marguerite Mullins and Nicole Marchese draw from extensive backgrounds in skincare and holistic therapy to perform a range of anti-aging, rejuvenating skin treatments. In addition to body sculpting, the aestheticians offer massages, such as a detoxifying raindrop-therapy treatment infused with aromatic essential oils. The more intensive lastone therapy takes its inspiration from traditional Asian massages, targeting sore muscle groups with smooth heated and chilled stones. There are also a number of invigorating facial treatments available, including hydration facials that employ pomegranate and noni to clean pores and fight sun damage.
The physician-supervised staff at American Photon Lipo Centers, which also serves the Chicago area, offers noninvasive alternatives to liposuction and facelifts. Using BioSlim technology's red light, they can shrink fat cells during BioSculpt 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.
