To understand who we are, it's important to know where we came from. DNA Spectrum helps field this question by identifying clients' ethnic and geographic groupings going back hundreds of years. Three levels of DNA-testing package range from the basic option, which answers one or two questions, to the full-spectrum-plus package, which delves deeply into ancestral history and produces each clients' top 50 matches down to the country, city, or tribe. To ensure accurate results, the lab maintains the strictest genetic-testing industry standard, so customers can rest assured that they hail from Eastern Europe and not a cardboard box like their older brothers always said.
At North Valley Plastic Surgery, a dedicated team of board-certified doctors and nurses guides clients through every step of custom-tailored beauty programs. During initial consultations, the professionals help select the right treatments to address clients' skincare concerns, including acne, deep-set wrinkles, and age spots. Though the team specializes in plastic surgery, they're equally adept at laser-powered skin treatments, chemical peels, and facials. Medical-grade skincare treatments use product lines such as PCA Skin and Éminence Organic Skin Care, which delivers aesthetic results while growing an organic herb garden in your pores. After services, clients walk away with their physician's cell-phone number so that they can ask questions any time of day or night.
The trained skin specialists at Scottsdale and Phoenix Dermatology simplify daily beauty routines, granting visages the power of permanent makeup through medical pigmentation. A permanent-makeup session begins with a licensed technician numbing the skin with a topical agent to ease any discomfort as clients lie back in a cushy chair. The digital pigmentation device uses fully sealed, one-time-use needle cartridges to deliver hypoallergenic, mineral-based pigment hygienically into the dermis. The permanently made up can often resume normal activities immediately after the treatment. Fill in eyebrows without fear of makeup fading at the gym, or wake up with perfectly drawn eyeliner and bawl beautifully at weddings with tears seemingly made of streak-free crystal.
Pilates builds lean muscle and strengthens cores, but it's more than a workout?in the skilled hands of AZ Body Mechanics' chiropractors and Pilates instructors, it's also a form of pain rehab. They draw on their medical expertise to combat back pain, headaches, and muscular tightness with the regimen's exercises. For each client, they start the rehab process with a structural and functional evaluation to identify posture problems. Next, they tailor private lessons to the client, targeting their specific aches and fitness goals. Group classes, meanwhile, focus more on fitness than pain relief, and range from mat sessions to workouts on Balanced Body reformers and towers. AZ Body Mechanics also heals pain via a variety of therapeutic massage modalities
