Townies & Tourists

Get your game face on

So, you're coming to Arizona for the Super Bowl. You've got your giant foam finger, comfortable shoes and your "Glendale's Got Game" T-shirt just arrived in your postbox. Looks like you're almost ready, but what about turning back the game clock? We don't mean the one on the scoreboard, we mean the one on your face.


A brow before Walk In-Walk Out Botox treatment.

You know how celebrities leave town and return smooth and well-rested? Well, it's not from all the partying and squinting at scripts, it's from good old-fashioned plastic surgery. "But golly," you say, "with the Big Game on Sunday February 3, there's just no time for all that pesky cutting and healing!" And we say, if you've got time for a dinner at one of the Valley's wonderful restaurants, then you've got time for Botox.


The same brow after Walk In-Walk Out Botox treatment.

Today's minimally invasive cosmetic procedures run the gamut from chemical peels to laser hair removal, but the Dermacare Centers have taken one-stop-beauty pops a step further with their Walk In-Walk Out Saturday afternoon Botox beautifiers.

The procedure is relatively painless, takes just minutes, and can last for six months. The on-site physician will discuss your expectations and then, before you know it, you'll be yelling your lungs out at touchdowns and fumbles with a brand new game face.

Trish Gulbranson, the owner (and a client) of Dermacare says looking like a mannequin is not a worry given the quantity of Botox used, "... no one wants a frozen face and that's not the case if you're just doing it just once a year." She prides herself on the staff's customer service -- they want you to look your best and will work with you to achieve first rate results.

Trading 5-10 years for 15 minutes? Now, that's something to celebrate. Dermacare of Mesa/Gilbert: 4140 E. Baseline Rd., 480.539.0777,
