Skin Perfection, An Anti-Aging Medical Spa's staff share one goal: to help their clients undo the effects of aging. A team of aestheticians and a registered nurse use advanced lasers, beauty injections, and peels to keep faces and skin looking youthful. Most visits begin with consultations, in which the medical professionals and patients go over what types of treatments are available, the kind of results one can expect, and their plans for locating Carmen Sandiego. For fine lines, microdermabrasion exfoliates away dead skin cells, chemical peels bring out vibrant and healthy skin, and cosmetic dermal fillers replace lost volume and fill in wrinkles. Skin Perfection also often puts laser technology to use as aestheticians work to get rid of body hair or diminish the appearance of tattoos.
Dr. Gerald Walman has been practicing eye surgery since 1979 and now clears vision with corrective procedures. Delinquent corneas cower before their reshaping LASIK lasers, which adjust the eye's internal curvature and bring the world, with the exception of fun-house mirrors, into crisp focus. They also brighten cloudy, cataract-afflicted eyes with implant surgeries and lift drooping eyelids with laser rejuvenation treatments.
A family vibe pervades Bishara Dental. For starters, four Bishara siblings oversee the office, including Drs. Helen, Mena, and Suzy Bishara. Fittingly, their specialties are family-dentistry services, such as cleanings, fillings, and implants, though they also schedule cosmetic services, such as teeth whitening and makeovers for the tooth fairy.
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.
The technicians at Loma Laser use light-based therapies to rid the skin of unwanted markings, wrinkles, and hair. By aiming specific wavelengths at acne, hyperpigmentation, and vascular blemishes, the professionals are able to reduce the appearance of these imperfections over the course of several treatments. All colors of tattoo ink succumb to intense pulsed light's heated energy, which causes the pigments to dissipate so they can be flushed from the body naturally.
Three points of focus exist at Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center: ophthalmology, optometry, and cosmetic surgery. Under the guidance of medical director Emilio M. Justo, M.D., the medical staff works to improve the vision of their patients, as well as assisting them in achieving aesthetic goals. The Arizona state–licensed and AAAHC-accredited outpatient surgery center allows Dr. Justo, his team, and their band of surgical elves to care for patients within the comfortable confines of their own facility, eliminating the need to journey to a hospital.
