Carl Sonder, MD is on a mission: to create beauty and happiness in a world often beset by strife. He has seen his fair share of the latter. After studying internal medicine at the prestigious Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Dr. Sonder served in the military as a general medical officer in Vietnam. His focus was on the treatment of severe burn injuries, and it was here that a lifelong passion for aesthetic medicine was born. After his military service, Dr. Sonder became board-certified in psychiatry and neurology, and practiced psychiatry and internal medicine in New York City for 25 years. Dr. Sonder then relocated to Arizona in 1999, and nurtured his interest in aesthetics with a series of courses and trainings in aesthetic technology and cosmetic procedures. He was recently elected to the American Academy of Hyperbaric Physicians after becoming certified in the use of the above-hospital-grade Khrunichev hyperbaric oxygen chamber.
Dr. Sonder now directs the team of doctors, nurses, and medical aestheticians at Regency Medical Spa. The clinical team combats signs of aging on the face with injectable fillers and Botox, and contours bodies with anti-cellulite mesotherapy sessions or LipoDissolve procedures. The reception area at the Phoenix facility boasts a large, reddish-brown painting that mirrors the rich red floors and accentuates the brown leather chairs. The Scottsdale site is also bedecked in soothing earth tones. Both locations offer a private concierge driver service to get clients home after treatments or acquaint extraterrestrials with local businesses.
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.
At Tan Factory, patrons slip from standup Saturn tanning beds or lie-down units, their skin warm and bronzed. The UVA-based high-pressure beds leave bodies with golden hues, and red-light-therapy beds hum as they generously spread a glow to stimulate collagen-producing fibroblasts during 15-minute sessions. As the light penetrates epidermal layers, it activates the body?s natural processes to reduce the appearance of fine lines, blemishes, and scars, restoring youthful sleekness and an ability to make convincing shadow puppets of dolphins. Those seeking to augment skin with sunless color step into a Mystic Tan or VersaSpa Spray booth and emerge 60 seconds later with fully toasted coats that last up to eight days.
Over 15 years of practicing dentistry Dr. Brandon Kroll has learned to emphasize conservative intervention in all his services, which range from general dental procedures to cutting-edge orthodontia. His attractive office, which boasts an upscale waiting room, in-room TV screens, and few if any malevolent ghosts, provides a comfortable environment that puts patients at ease.
Aesthetician Ann Casillo understands the difficulties of living in a desert clime. Dry air, extreme temperatures, and dating cacti all take their toll on the complexion. At her new location in North Scottsdale, her signature facials work to reverse this damage with rejuvenating ingredients and pampering add-ons. Natural solutions sourced from pumpkin and fruit coax out a healthy glow, and more advanced LED lights and exfoliating procedures leave skin refreshed. Ann also sells products by Skin Script to help clients continue the beautifying process at home.
