President & CEO
Clearskin Institute of Laser Aesthetics / Phoenix Medical, Inc.

Larry Helwig graduated from Arizona State University with a BSN degree and later graduated from Maricopa County General Hospital’s Emergency Nurse Practitioner Program. He has been using his medical background in the laser aesthetics industry for 20 years. After establishing Phoenix Medical, Inc. as a laser and aesthetic equipment sales company, he established Clearskin Institute of Laser Aesthetics as a “result oriented” treatment and training facility. For the last 20 years Larry has been training physicians, and their staff, in advanced techniques for skin and body consultations and the full body treatments that follow. In 2006 Larry developed and authored the CT3 protocol that treats color, tone, texture and tightening in each session. This protocol is used world-wide and helps generate faster results with little patient down-time. He is a well-known international speaker and educator providing advanced laser aesthetic training, and certification to physicians and their staff. Clearskin Institute is accredited by the state of Arizona to train and certify physicians, nurses and aestheticians in the safe and proper use of lasers. His unique, insightful approach to educating has made Clearskin Institute the recognized advanced laser training facility in the country. He is a board member of the United Aesthetics Organization and the Arizona Board of Nursing, serving on the Scope of Practice Committee. Additionally, he volunteers much of his time to non-profit training.


Medical Director
Clearskin Institute of Laser Aesthetics / Phoenix Medical, Inc.

Dr. Ann Elizabeth Watwood is a naturopathic physician who specializes in cosmetic dermatology, anti-aging medicine, and women’s health. As the Medical Director for Clearskin Institute of Laser Aesthetics, her mission is to help our clients look and feel their best.

Dr. Watwood helps patients achieve optimal health and wellness by “treating the cause and not just the symptoms” when it comes to healthcare. After struggling herself for many years in the traditional healthcare system to no avail, she decided to take her health into her own hands. She sought out Naturopathic Medicine, applied to Naturopathic Medical School, and began on her own journey of self-discovery. Today she shares her passion for health by helping patients overcome their health obstacles in the safest and most effective way possible. By addressing all aspects of a person’s life in the treatment, she can help people to increase their health so they feel better, look better, have more energy, and are happier.

Dr. Shuell

Dr. Shuell is a highly experienced and well-respected surgeon, with over 33 years’ experience as a gynecologic surgeon and 18 years as a cosmetic plastic surgeon. He is Certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery in the Specialty of Breast, Body and Extremities; he is also Certified by the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology for the practice of surgery of the female reproductive system.

Patients are pleasantly surprised that we value their personal time and their concerns as our highest priority. We approach each consultation personally and have patient-friendly appointments–offering generous ‘face time’ directly with Dr. Shuell. Quite often, our patients are in consultation for more than an hour. This open-ended approach lies at the very heart of our “Boutique” practice philosophy. And, with the completion of your surgical procedure, your emergency after-hours contact number is Dr. Shuell’s personal cell phone number!

A note about anesthesia: Dr. Shuell has had extensive training to be able to offer local tumescent anesthesia choices instead of general anesthesia. The safety profile of your planned surgery is significantly improved by eliminating a general anesthetic; this also has the benefit of reducing or even completely eliminating some of the unpleasant side-effects associated with general anesthetic agents. Our patients can look forward to a recovery marked by the near-elimination of nausea & vomiting, fatigue, and temporary disorientation.
