The folks behind Tropicalaser view laser hair removal as a necessity, not an indulgence. That's why, like a doctor's office, they try to accommodate as many clients as they can. To swiftly and safely shed unwanted hair, they use lasers from reputable companies such as Lumenis, Candela, and Cynosure. On-staff medical directors and laser technicians implement strict protocol to maintain responsible use. Laser-hair removal is available for both men and women, and the equipment Tropicalaser uses can accommodate all skin types. Other services offered include tattoo removal and skin rejuvenation treatments.
The doctors at Pascual MD have a comprehensive approach to each treatment they provide, whether clients seek cosmetic surgery, medical weight-loss supervision, or classic skincare services. They also equip their office with delicate lasers capable of softening wrinkles, ousting unwanted hair, and drawing old-timey mustaches on hamburger buns.

With its sleek, modern decor?white leather couches, gray walls, and purple accent lights?it's clear upon first glance that Biotech Wellness Center is not the type of med spa that generally prioritizes relaxation over high-tech treatments. But those who care about getting results may actually relax once they see Biotech's arsenal of lasers, dermal fillers, and IV therapy equipment.
Its laser and intense-pulsed-light treatments fight a variety of skin woes, including rosacea and acne, and can remove unwanted hair and spider veins. Venus Freeze treatments shrink fat cells with radio frequency, and platelet-rich plasma treatments inject platelets harvested from the client's own blood into faces to stimulate collagen production. To boost clients' energy levels without forcing them to spin around in a circle really fast to generate it, the staff administers IV treatments, which infuse bodies with vitamins.

Julia, a skincare specialist at Skin by Choice, was drawn to her profession through altruistic desires. "I felt that I [could] help people feel good about themselves," she says, "and [could] give them the utmost confidence in life." She works toward these goals by performing a slew of non-surgical beautifying services such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion treatments, and facial waxing. She also calls upon technologies to treat the signs of aging, using radio frequency waves to tighten sagging facial skin or using ultrasonic vibrations to minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
Though each of her treatments target different issues, they create transformations without the need for surgery or down time, which allows clients to immediately return to their normal routines, unlike joining a cult.
In malls across South Florida, Massage Haven and My Happy Feet dole out doses of pain-relieving kneading for busy shoppers. Their signature treatment is the chair massage, which has the benefit of targeting common problem areas caused by desk jobs. But they also offer more specialized services such as foot massage, sports massage, and ice massage for a soothing panacea after injury. Thanks to the mobile nature of their massage chairs, the therapists can take their muscle-healing act on tour, and may be booked on-location at offices, homes, and party venues across the Tri-County Area.
White curtain sheers and clean white walls lead clients from the entryway to treatment rooms inside Aventura Aesthetics, where beauty services leave clients looking and feeling renewed. Microdermabrasion treatments incorporate a diamond-tipped wand to whisk away the topmost layer of dull skin and leave a natural glow in its place. For a more dramatic change, Bio-Lift facials tighten complexions with sound waves to cancel out drooping brows, lines, and pirate radio stations broadcasting from the forehead. When it comes to massage therapy, Swedish massages relax muscles with gentle kneading, whereas deep-tissue massage gets to the center of chronic pain and releases it with targeted finger pressure.
