Dr. Stuart Hetrick never planned to open New Image Med Spa in Ahwatukee Foothills.

Hetrick is the owner of Foothills Neurology and has been using Botox injections for years to help medical conditions like cervical dystonia or blether spasms, even helping stroke patients loosen strained muscles and patients lessen migraines.

“It’s a tremendous tool,” he said. “It’s very helpful for a number of neurological conditions.”

It wasn’t until 2000 when Botox began to be known for cosmetic purposes. Hetrick said he started getting requests and decided to give it a try.

“People began coming in and saying, ‘You do Botox, do you do microderm?’” he said. “I’m a neurologist. They asked about fillers and lasers and what to do about this — I’m a neurologist — but they kept asking for it. I said, ‘Let me look into it.’”

He began researching lasers and started doing cosmetic treatments on the side, and even hired two aestheticians. Eventually, there was not enough space inside the small office of Foothills Neurology to keep operating Foothills New Image so when the office just across the parking lot opened up Hetrick jumped on the opportunity. He moved New Image Med Spa to its own office.

Inside the spa clients can receive photofacials, waxing, microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, chemical peels, facials, laser hair removal skin resurfacing, and once or twice a day Hetrick crosses the parking lot to provide Botox. The spa even has a naturopathic doctor who provides acupuncture and B-12 shots.

“We pride ourselves on differentiating ourselves from major chains,” said Clarine Laurie, one of two aestheticians at New Image Med Spa. “We provide really personal service. Every patient has a story and personal relationship with us… We’ve been life changing for many patients because we know their story.”

Laurie said her favorite part of her job is creating connections with her patients and helping them achieve what they want to achieve. While New Image Med Spa’s services can help cosmetically, many treatments can be life changing, she said.

Also housed inside the spa is ALW Massage, owned and operated by Audrey Washington, who specializes in the medical side of massage. She helps clients with disabilities, migraines, Parkinsons, multiple sclerosis, and more. Washington is certified in cancer massage. ALW Massage can also provide custom massage, deep tissue, sports massage, Thai Yoga massage, trigger point therapy, pregnancy massage, reiki and reflexology.
