North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic's team of aestheticians and laser technicians—led by board-certified naturopathic physician Dr. Jessica Anderson—not only offers an expansive list of anti-aging skincare services, but also makes sure clients get paired with the right one. The staff members precede each service with a consultation to determine a customized procedure plan catered to the client's skin type, beauty needs, and the vote of every pore. During treatments, clients can relax in sunny, private rooms surrounded by framed artwork hanging from earth-toned walls. Dr. Anderson herself performs all injections and brings her clients a wealth of knowledge about naturopathy, noninvasive therapies, and homeopathic skincare solutions.
As a former member of the medical field, Angelica Valdivieso, colon hydrotherapist and founder of Detox For Life, has spent the last decade combining her knowledge of medical techniques with her menu of restorative alternative techniques. Angelica and her team of hydrotherapists and nutritionists oversee closed-system colon-hydrotherapy services designed to flush out toxins and waste material, leaving clients with a sense of lightness not experienced since their last pillow fight on the moon. To further vanquish toxins from the body, Angelica and the team administer ear coning, a method that helps to draw debris and molds from the ear canal, and ionic footbaths designed to detox the body of heavy metals.
The object of her work is to deliver long-lasting beauty, so it's fitting that the technique that inspires permanent-makeup artist Cresent Gibbons?ancient Japanese tattooing?is itself so enduring. Cresent practices her advanced version of this timeless art during permanent eyeliner, lipstick, and eyebrow sessions. She can even add artificial beauty marks in order to suggest old-school glamour or make one pet turtle distinguishable from another. Cresent also applies 3D lash extensions, individually bonding flexible fringe to eyelashes so that clients can enjoy luscious lids without mascara.
The licensed medical professionals at Advantage Beauty and Health help clients work toward their aesthetic goals with a variety of services. Targeted injections of Botox and Dysport help ease the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and crow's-feet, and dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvéderm restore fullness to faces. Skin can be further treated with chemical peels that clear the complexion while fostering youthful firmness and milk mustaches. Those seeking interior change may opt for custom diet plans, which support weight-loss efforts with vitamin B12 and lipotropic injections.
At Movement Restoration, massage therapists seek to do exactly what the practice's name describes: restore mobility to stress-stiffened limbs and backs. They do this by not only soothing tense muscles with Swedish and deep-tissue massage modalities but also enhancing the experience with specialty treatments. Hot and cool stones join forces during LaStone therapy, helping to stimulate and relax the circulatory system better than a time-sensitive email sung in Gregorian chants. Thai massage incorporates yoga, gentle stretching, and rocking to liberate stubborn knots.
In Irish, ?m?s means reverence. Maureen McIntyre, owner of Omos Massage, chose it as the name of her business to express her admiration for each client and his or her individuality. She gives them massages as unique as they are, tailoring Swedish and deep tissue treatments to suit their specific pain, such as an ache in the lower back or the spot where a third arm keeps trying to sprout. She also uses her deft hands to apply eyelash extensions, carefully affixing fibers to each natural lash to create a full, natural-looking set of lashes.
