The Ace of Aesthetics

From slimming down to boosting up, Scottsdale-area residents are flocking to DermaCrush to look and feel their best

Last year, the global medical spa market size saw a major boost in interest and activity from people coming out of lockdown measures. From tummy tucks to lip injections to laser hair removal, after a year indoors, these procedures and more skyrocketed across the country. In fact, the global market for medical spas is expected to reach nearly $37 billion by 2028, a 14% rise in total from 2021.

One of those medical spas leading the way in the Phoenix area is DermaCrush, a comprehensive treatment center offering clients a full lineup of eye-catching services meant to help them look and feel their best. There are your traditional options, like Botox, dermal fillers, and Fraxel® laser treatment for sun damage and acne scars, as well as more hotly sought-after options like Diamond Glow™ facials and EMSCULPT Neo®, the new body sculpting treatment recently unveiled at the North Scottsdale location.


Opened in the fall of 2019, DermaCrush has been providing clients the opportunity to achieve the look and body they have in mind, reaching their ideal aesthetics for everything from weddings to summer travel to getting rid of stubborn abdominal fat. The entire office is state-of-the art and is finished with smart climate control, aroma infusing technology, integrated access control, and green motion sensing power management to help clients feel comfortable and at ease, something that was vitally important according to president and medical director Marie Baker, FNP-C.

“I wanted my patients to be able to relax and enjoy a space that was modern, medical, and sophisticated. When patients come through the front door, their first visual is a large charcoal gray natural stone wall that embodies stability and earthiness,” Baker says, describing the inviting location.

Large modern light fixtures, sourced from Milan, adorn the lobby creating beautiful indirect shimmering effect below. We also wanted to create an open and uncluttered space. The floor to ceiling windows, high ceiling, large porcelain floor tiles make the entire space feel like “taking a deep breath of fresh air when you enter,” adds Baker. The reason there is so much emphasis on comfort and ease is that some clients, especially those newer to aesthetic services, might feel nervous or intimidated to receive treatment, such as male clients who don’t traditionally seek these services.


When it comes to getting rid of stubborn fat or turning back the clock from signs of aging, EMSCULPT Neo® is the cutting edge in form and function. DermaCrush can help men reverse aging by softening wrinkles on the face, reducing hair on back, and reducing body fat while increasing muscle tone with EMSCULPT Neo®.

“Some men have more visceral fat (the fat around your organs), which is what we call the ‘beer-belly’ look. Only dietary changes or EMSCULPT Neo® can target this fat. Even liposuction cannot get to this fat as effectively as clients would want it to,” says Baker.

In all, EMSCULPT Neo® is a non-invasive, no down-time body shaping procedure that provides simultaneous fat elimination and muscle building in a combined 30- minute session. It targets and eliminates fat with RF (radiofrequency) and stimulates muscle contractions with HIFEM (high intensity focused electromagnetic energy). Specific areas that Baker sees clients requesting help with are arms, abs, glutes, quads, and calves.

Essentially, EMSCULPT Neo® has full-body sculpting capabilities that can help men, or any client, feel younger and more confident. Summer is here, which means it’s the perfect time to look into treatments like body sculpting or Botox to take on the pool or the beach in style.
