Gilbert Community Mourns Tragic Loss of Toddler in Backyard Drowning

A somber event occurred in Arizona when a 1-year-old boy tragically drowned in a Gilbert-area home on a Monday afternoon.

The incident prompted a response from first responders around 2:30 p.m., who discovered the child in an unfenced backyard pool. Despite immediate CPR efforts and transportation to the hospital, the young boy did not survive.

Authorities believe the toddler accessed the backyard through a doggie door, leading to the pool. The police investigation, ongoing at this time, has not released the identity of the boy or his family.

The heartbreaking incident serves as a reminder of the importance of pool safety and vigilance with young children.

The Beauty Architect: DrSkin Med Spa Redefining Aesthetics in Gilbert

Near Higley and Baseline Rds, a sanctuary of beauty and rejuvenation emerges as DrSkin Med Spa, a labor of love and passion orchestrated by the skilled hands and visionary mind of Joy Chapman. The spa, which opened its doors in May 2022, is not just a place for aesthetic treatments; it's a haven where personal transformations unfold, confidence is restored, and the pursuit of natural beauty is an art form.

A Leap of Faith into Luxury

Joy Chapman's journey to DrSkin Med Spa began with a bold step out of her comfort zone. After years of honing her skills as an aesthetician and laser technician in another med spa, she decided to redefine her path. "Without risk, there could be no reward," Chapman reflects on the decision to invest in her dreams. In May 2022, she embarked on a new chapter, and DrSkin Med Spa was born—a testament to her courage and commitment.

Beyond Beauty: Comprehensive Aesthetic Solutions

DrSkin Med Spa goes beyond the ordinary, offering an extensive array of more than 160 treatments, with additional options slated for 2024. From medical-grade facials, chemical peels, toxins, and dermal fillers to advanced laser treatments addressing scars, pigment issues, and anti-aging concerns—each service is meticulously designed to restore confidence and enhance natural beauty.

Unique to DrSkin is its commitment to providing the latest technologies, such as the Venus Bliss Max for noninvasive 360 body sculpting and AviClear for acne treatment. What sets them apart is the collaboration with a Top 100 U.S. board-certified plastic surgeon, offering in-office procedures like eyelifts and mini facelifts.

A Holistic Approach: Bridging Eastern and Western Medicine

DrSkin Med Spa seamlessly bridges the gap between western and eastern medicine. The spa boasts a naturopathic physician and surgeon, ensuring a comprehensive approach to aesthetics. Their dedication to results and service extends beyond the spa's walls; a team of doctors is available around the clock to address clients' needs, emphasizing that the patient's journey doesn't end after a treatment.

Passion Meets Purpose: Joy Chapman's Vision
