Board-certified plastic surgeon and medical director of Neos Med Spa, Dr. Shaun Parson, insists that his licensed medical staff undergo intensive training in both the technology and administration of all treatments. This expert training, combined with a catlike fascination with lasers, has led to the center’s specialization in laser procedures, including hair removal, spider-vein removal, custom skin-rejuvenation treatments to treat acne, and anti-aging treatments. A detailed consultation precedes each treatment, helping technicians develop a custom plan of action that optimizes results. Neos MedSpa also offers Botox and Dysport injections, and a medically supervised weight-loss program that supplements a very low-calorie diet with HCG injections to help patients lose one to two pounds a day.
Carolyn B. Melby has more certifications and licenses than she can shake a stick at—an obvious truth when you consider that she has yet to receive a certification in stick shaking. During her 30-plus years in the skincare industry, Carolyn has earned an aesthetician license, two business degrees, a certification in permanent makeup, and a license in medical laser technology in the state of Arizona. Given such a broad skill set, her similarly wide selection of services comes as little surprise to her clients. Of her many talents, Carolyn most often works with aging, acne-prone, or hyperpigmented skin—conditions that she diligently treats with high-end services such as microdermabrasion, skin-rejuvenation therapy, and permanent makeup applications.

Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
Yes I agree that beauty begins on the inside. When you're feeling good and confident it carries over to the outside, making you look and feel good
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
People create their own stress which makes them age faster. Beauty embodies the whole person and one must take care of their inner body. Life is about smelling the roses and enjoying yourself.
People go to spas to forget about the outside world. How does your decor help create an atmosphere where visitors can unwind?
We create a professional, friendly, and relaxing atmosphere.

Dr. Edgardo Zavala-Alarcon comes from a long line of Mexican doctors, a tradition he continued by becoming a prominent cardiologist in Mexico. But when his country's climate grew unstable in the 1990s, he made the tough decision to uproot his family and move to the United States. Though not an easy transition—one filled with the years-long process of becoming reaccredited as a cardiologist—Dr. Zavala-Alarcon trucked on, eventually becoming an Arizona hospital’s chief of cardiology and obtaining his certificate in cosmetic surgery. He now operates out of his own family-run clinic, where he enhances clients' natural beauty with treatments ranging from nonsurgical nose jobs and laser vein-removal treatments to liposuction and breast augmentation. His extensive knowledge of internal medicine and cardiology serves him well in the cosmetic field, as it helps decrease the usual risks associated with surgical procedures.
Inside Ciao Bella Medical Spa & Vein Clinic, patients are greeted in an elegant front lounge filled with burnt-orange walls, marbled floor tiles, and dark leather couches. From there, they whisper a secret password to a potted plant before being led to a treatment rooms, where Dr. Zavala-Alarcon and his trained medical staff provide informative consultations before administering aesthetic procedures.
