After retiring from competitive professional cycling, Scott Keller and Will Geurts decided to share the joys of the worldview from atop a bike with the next generation of cyclists. The pair conducts anywhere from two-hour to five-day forays into Sedona’s airy wilderness, providing expert coaching to riders throughout the desert journey through towering red-rock formations under a never-ending sky. Their solid advice and encouragement keep pedals moving and the scenery rolling past as they imbue others with the passion that led them to spend a lifetime with the sport and replace the lower half of their bodies with bicycle frames.
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.
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.

Cleaned faces then serve as her blank canvas during makeup applications. Using MAC beauty products to outline eyes and accentuate cheekbones, Janelle draws from her experience applying makeup for both brides and actors to ensure her clients' faces look flawless, even when blown-up to a 1.85 to 1 ratio. And, to keep clients beautiful below the neck, she also performs a variety of other services, including body waxing and brow tinting.
