There are so many special events in the fall and winter. Weddings, holiday parties, New Year's Eve parties. Events where you want to really look your best. Believe it or not, that takes a little advance planning! We are preparing for our daughter's wedding. I am going to wear one of those dresses that, well, a) show my arms, b) show my curves, c) show my decolletage, and d) show my back. Pretty scary, right? Not to mention that of course my face needs a little attention. So... I created a to-do timeline for me to look my best, and I thought I would share it with you. And keep in mind that this is not just a to-do for weddings, you can use if you simply want to continue looking your best.
My first to-do is CoolSculpting under my chin, my outer thighs, my abdomen, and my arms. I am in pretty good shape but I don't want excess fat hanging around showing anywhere near my FABULOUS dress! This is three months out from the event, because it takes time for the body to naturally eliminate the dead fat cells.
Next is micro-needling. I have been doing this, but I am going in to Vitality Skin & Body medical spa at two months before and again at one month before the wedding. It really is amazing how this perks up your skin, eliminates lines, and gives you a refreshed look. When I have micro-needling done, the lines in my decolletage area disappear almost completely, and that is important for a plunging neckline dress.
Then, I am going to get a little Juvederm in my lips to give them a nice plump look and eliminate those little vertical wrinkles that start to creep around your lip area. And, I will have the gals at Vitality Skin & Body work on the wrinkles around my eyes and forehead with Botox. This I will do about two weeks out from the wedding, as well as photo rejuvenation IPL to tackle the brown spots on my forehead and decolletage area.
After that, I think I will be good to go! Confident that I look my best for this wonderful occasion. I really do recommend that you do advance planning for your special events. You can call the skin care professionals at Vitality Skin & Body in Scottsdale for a complimentary consultation. They are well trained, really good listeners, and can help you decide both the necessary treatments and timeline to get you ready. The phone number is 480-203-3918 or e-mail them to schedule.
It's still summer in Phoenix, and it means your legs probably show most of the time. And that means shaving, waxing, or even electrolysis if you are sick of the other two. You might also be tired of razor rash and that skin ripping feeling from a wax. If so, there is a solution! Laser hair removal!
At Vitality Skin & Body medical spa in Scottsdale our professional aestheticians can treat women and men of all skin tones safely and effectively. We use the Solera ProWave system. It not only removes hair at the time of treatment, but it reduces regrowth. You can treat your face, arms, legs, underarms and back, and even really sensitive parts of your body like nipples, your bikini line, and also those hairy man chests! :-)
The laser hair removal process is safe, non-invasive, and there is no downtime. The treatment uses laser light energy to target the melanin in the hair, heating and killing it at the base, or follicle. The number of treatments necessary to prevent hair regrowth is based on how much hair removal you want and how much hair you have. Treatments are typically set about a month apart.

Everyone wants the legs in the picture above. But we all know that sometimes there is a gap between what we want and what we have. Varicose veins, or spider veins are veins that are enlarged and we can see them on the surface of the skin. They are primarily on the legs, but can be other places, even the sides of our nose and our cheeks!
It's true. A quick Google search of micro-needling yields positive reports on the benefits of micro-needling. So - what's the REAL story with skin needling? Does it really work? The answer is yes. There is solid medical science behind the procedure. And plastic surgeons almost unanimously agree that this minimally invasive skin rejuvenating procedure triggers your own body to create new collagen and elastin, resulting in improvement in skin texture, firmness, scar, stretch mark, and pore size reduction.
How does it work? At Vitality Skin & Body medical spa, we use the DermaPen. It contains fine needles that create tiny punctures to cause a controlled skin injury. Each puncture causes the body to react by filling these microscopic wounds with new collagen and elastin.
It is a brilliant skin treatment because it causes your own body to fight aging - a very natural solution to diminishing lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and acne scars. And while it is typically used on the face, neck, and décolleté, it can be used anywhere - arms, legs, thighs, etc.
For best results, a series of treatments are recommended. The skin care professionals at Vitality Skin & Body medical spa in Scottsdale, AZ will discuss your personal skin care needs and goals, and recommend the customized skin care program that is best for you.
There are numerous other skin treatments available, including a variety of laser therapies, wonderful facials, and facial fillers.

You open your door and a furnace blast of hot air hits you in the face. You get into your car after work and it feels like being shoved into a pizza oven. You lay by the pool and the dry air and beating sun sap the moisture out of your skin, burning it if it is unprotected.
What to do in July to prevent your skin from needing resuscitation? Research has identified vitamins C and E, as well as selenium, as vitamins that can help protect your skin from sun damage and even skin cancer. Research shows that taking supplements with 1,000-3,000 milligrams of vitamin C, 400 IU of vitamin E (D-alpha-tocopherol form), and 100-200 micrograms of selenium for maximum benefit. Of course check with your doctor to make sure these vitamins and minerals are appropriate for you before taking them.
Not only can these supplements help prevent skin damage, but research is pointing to the fact that reversal of wrinkles and skin discoloration, as well as protection from skin cancer may also be benefits of these anti-oxidants.
And, keep your skin hydrated and then protect the moisture from being zapped out by the heat, dry air, and sun. Did you know that Cleopatra of Egypt used shea butter? And that the average daily high in the summer is 112 degrees Fahrenheit? But not to worry, it's a dry heat... The Roman historian Cassius Dio describes Cleopatra as “a woman of surpassing beauty” who was “brilliant to look upon.” Clearly Cleopatra knew how to navigate the stresses of summer on her skin.
Shea butter is an off-white or ivory-colored fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree and is a triglyceride (fat) derived mainly from stearic acid and oleic acid. It has healing properties for the skin as evidenced by its' use in Africa for burn care and even wound care. The name of the shea tree is the karite tree, or Tree of Life.
In addition to providing all of the practical daily care you can for your skin, don't forget that a good facial with a moisturizing mask is a wonderful jump start back to skin rejuvenation. Vitality Skin & Body medical spa has a number of different facials to choose from, and can customize to meet your skin's needs. There is a facial special going on NOW!

It's July in the Valley of the Sun. The sun is continuing to bake anything within reach of its' rays. Thirty minutes outside in the sun can make your skin look like a tomato. And when you are sunburned, all of the moisture is sapped out of your skin. Plus, did you know that damage from the sun is cumulative, and may not be visible for years?
Yet most Arizonans love to sun bathe, to float in the pool, to hang out at the lake. We are drawn to water to help us survive the summer. So, what are practical ways to still enjoy summer but not make sure skin take on a lizard like quality?
Fashion changes. Careers and roles change. But tattoos don't. If you have tattoos that you thought were incredible five years ago and no longer want them where you put them, there is a solution! And it is not painful. In fact, at Vitality Skin & Body medical spa in Scottsdale, Arizona, we use the Go Tatless natural tattoo removal system. It is non-laser, non-acidic, and non-surgical. It is pain free and actually draws the ink out of the skin.
According to Dr. Ben Evans, MD, Internal Medicine Specialist and Vitality Skin & Body's Medical Director, "Go Tattless is less painful and there is no need to worry about the old tattoo ink trapped in your blood stream like LASER systems. Its all-natural!"
The process takes less time than traditional tattoo removal - 3 to 6 treatments. See the simple steps below:
The first step of the Go Tattless procedure is to simply assess a starting point and create the best plan to remove the first section of your tattoo.
The second step in the Go Tattless process is prepping the skin for the procedure. During this time we clean and apply our proprietary non-abrasive products to your skin.
Third step of the Go Tattless procedure is the part when your tattoo is removed. During step three our scar inhibiting formula is working away to “un-Ink” your skin.
Step four is our favorite! This is when you smile and breathe a sigh of relief. We simply cover the treated area so it will not get wet and schedule your next treatment.
