The name of nurse practitioner Lisa Williams's aesthetic center reflects its most popular treatment: laser hair removal. At Ultra Smooth Skin, techs regularly employ noninvasive laser beams to minimize hair in areas such as chins, underarms, and bikini lines. However, the center?s lasers can do more than just eradicate hair. They are also used for procedures such as Fraxel skin resurfacing, during which they lighten age spots and smooth away wrinkles to expose the youthful, healthy skin hidden below the face?s surface. Visitors can also opt for injectables such as Botox, Restylane and Juv?derm, which further combat wrinkles. Topical treatments round out the center?s offerings, such as CoolSculpting contouring treatments, Latisse treatments that encourage eyelash growth, and rejuvenating chemical peels.

Village Health Clubs & Spas are one-stop shops for fitness training, spa services, and amenity-stuffed facilities. One month of access to their four locations allows visitors to use the Village fitness equipment, clean up in the available locker rooms, shoot hoops on basketball courts, swim in lap pools, and much more. The two-week guided fitness program kick-starts fitness routines long stymied by malaise, time constraints, and road-blocking donut holes; with the aid of a helpful Village staff member, you'll get started by figuring out precisely where your goals and interests lie on the muscle map. A nutrition warm-up will educate you in the ways of healthy food choices, and a 60-minute fitness intro with a certified personal trainer will get hearts pumping and tendons quivering. You'll also be introduced to the vast panoply of available cardio equipment and group yoga and Pilates classes. Finally, "adventure time" commences with a workout, hike, bike ride, or round of tennis, the sport most avidly followed by excitable canines.
When the Smiths pulled up their roots in British Columbia and moved to Arizona, they brought their love of agriculture with them. But they started small?just growing English cucumbers in a greenhouse. Today, the family-run farm has hugely expanded, and 95% of their "veganic", organically-grown produce is distributed in-state.
Year-round, the greenhouses give shelter to a wide variety of vegetables, including micro-greens, herbs, lettuces, kale, beets, carrots, onions, cucumbers, eggplants, and tomatoes. Depending on the season, FarmBoxes are packed with the customer's choice of assorted locally-grown produce that is freshly harvested from the earth, plucked from a shrub, or stolen from a wood nymph that very week.
Chicago-native Lobby Syregelas brought along his city’s famed meat-filled grub when he moved to Arizona. But in addition to supplying Vienna hot dogs and Italian beef sandwiches, he made a burger locals can claim their own: locally baked buns, house-made ‘secret sauce,’ and hand-formed, all-beef patties synthesize into a tasty treat.
?Movement is life. Mind and body are one.? It is this philosophy that drives Amen Iseghohiin both his fitness regimen and his life. That view comes from two sources: a childhood spent with his grandmother in West Africa, and tires. While his grandmother encouraged perseverance and self-sufficiency, his games with tires helped him develop strength and discipline. And the humble objects still have significance to Amen?they form the basis of the exercises at his gym, AmenZone Fitness.
At the facility's many locations, Amen and his fellow instructors champion the practice of primal training. The unconventional, challenging workout uses natural movements, body weight, and car tires to build endurance and lean muscle.
