The Hills Introduces Sculptor Artisan Reversital Technology

As we age, there are five major issues that occur within the body: skin becomes loose and lax, creases develop, inflammation occurs, gravity makes body parts droop and sag, and body fat increases. 

Sculptor Artisan addresses these five major issues by tightening and firming skin, reducing creases and wrinkles, reducing inflammation by sculpting and contouring, lifting and firming droopy areas, and instantly reducing body mass. 

The Hills Salon & Spa is the only Spa in North Scottsdale with this cutting-edge technology.

Sculptor is ideal for body contouring and instantly taking inches off the waist, arms and legs. Sculptor lifts, tightens and reduces inflammation. Sculptor improves skin laxity and re-contours the body. It also accelerates collagen and elastin renewal. Additionally, it reduces creases, lines and wrinkles. Sculptor is also very beneficial in addressing cellulite and scars.

You will usually see dramatic results with only one treatment. For even better results, you will need multiple treatments, and it really depends on the area treated. The Hills Salon & Spa offers complimentary consultations to help you learn more. Consultations are offered without pressure—they are simply to educate and inform. 

Sculptor Artisan utilizes high-frequency microcurrent, and it’s safe and noninvasive. Microcurrent has been around for decades and has been a staple treatment for spas over the years. Because of advances in technology, microcurrent can now be generated at a much higher frequency. The body and skin respond much more readily to this new technology.

Treatments are warm (no cold or freezing), fairly comfortable, completely noninvasive and require no anesthetic or numbing cream. There is zero downtime, and Sculptor produces immediate and dramatic results! 

Sculptor technology is the absolute latest skin contouring and body sculpting technology. It works on any part of the body and performs dramatic improvements other technologies simply can’t deliver.

Ahipoki Opens Ninth Restaurant in North Scottsdale

Ahipoki opened the doors to its newest location at 9301 E. Shea Blvd., #105, in Scottsdale on February 22.

Since their first restaurant opening in April 2016 in central Scottsdale, the group has been on a torrid pace in opening a total of nine locations in Arizona in only 20 months. 2017 was a year of outstanding growth with openings in Tempe, Central Phoenix, Gilbert and Avondale. Coupled with the chain’s 14 open units in California, the 23 total stores makes Ahipoki the largest and fastest-growing corporately owned poke chain in America.

The Ahipoki Bowl concept was born out of the desire of a restaurant group wanting to bring a much needed health-conscious California seafood restaurant with a South Pacific flair to its customers. Health-conscious fish lovers can sit down and relax in a laid-back atmosphere all while enjoying the fusion of Japanese and Hawaiian flavors coupled with a fresh fish experience normally found outside of a quick-serve restaurant.
