As the name implies, Active Lifestyle Medical dedicates itself to helping patients live energetic, pain-free lives. To do so, they combine the skills of doctors who practice conventional medicine, and chiropractors and acupuncturists who view the body holistically.

Board-certified plastic surgeon and medical director of Neos MedSpa, 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.
Doctor of Chiropractic Radman Rahiminejad and his team of nine other chiropractors work to correct spinal misalignments with treatments that may include spinal decompression, physical therapy, soft-tissue massage, or a combination of all three. Massage therapists also soothe everyday stress by tapping out Morse code lullabies to spinal columns, using techniques that increase circulation and preempt future tension or pain. Weight-loss plans may utilize HCG or B-12 injections to aid in the inch-whittling process, while specialty lab testing can check for other issues such as hormone imbalances or food allergies. BackFit Health + Spine is an integrative practice, with a team of board-certified chiropractors, physicians, physical therapists, and nurse practitioners working together to improve patient health through personalized wellness solutions, including medical weight loss, pain management, and hormone replacement therapy. The Mesa location also now offers spinal decompression.
When they aren't educating other physicians on the latest advancements in regenerative medicine, the physicians at Protea Medical Center spend their days helping patients look better and feel more confident. They offer a range of cosmetic and regenerative services, addressing nutrition, weight troubles, and hormone imbalances as part of their women’s and men's health programs, and they use stem-cell therapies to treat everything from cardiovascular disease to wrinkles. Botox and Juvéderm also help smooth out facial folds, erasing years of stress with a simple injection, and injection therapies play an equally critical role in the center's nonsurgical orthopedic interventions, which help decrease pain and strengthen ligaments weakened from repeated attempts to open jelly jars.
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.
The hairstylists, makeup artists, aestheticians, laser technicians, and medical professionals of Skin Gravy combine their respective skills to help women beautify nearly any area of the body. The center excels in noninvasive treatments—lasers designed to remove hair, treat pigment imperfections, or contour curves help refine statures without a single touch. Meanwhile, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and injections of Botox and Juvéderm leave faces youthful enough to sweep the awards at the kindergarten field day.
