Led by board-certified plastic surgeon Jorge Gonzalez, MD, Elase Medical Spas' team rejuvenates clients with medical-grade laser procedures, skin treatments, and cosmetic injectables. As an academy for laser technicians, Elase unleashes an arsenal of advanced laser equipment upon a host of epidermal conditions. Sagging visages spring back to a more youthful state after laser skin tightening with a Candela ND:YAG laser, which helps rebuild the collagen and elastin scaffolding that keeps skin supple and plump, and supports the body's crew of construction guys. Laser hair removal eradicates unwanted strands, VelaShape helps firm up physiques with radio-frequency energy, and vein therapy reduces the appearance of veins on the face and legs.
Elase also offers treatments that tackle problem areas without a light show, such as cosmetic injectables—including Botox, Radiesse, and Restylane—which relax or plump up wrinkled areas. Alternatively, medical facials swathe skin in clinical-grade salves selected according to each skin's type and astrological sign.
Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
The team at Forever Trim Body Sculpting Center performs noninvasive body-contouring and face-lift procedures under the guidance of Dr. Michael Rodriguez. Drawing on a wealth of technology and leadership from Rodriguez, a fellow in the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the center’s technicians reshape the body and tighten the skin. With a Zerona LipoLaser system, they emulsify stubborn fat on the waist, hips, and thighs, making it easier to wear skinny jeans or slip into a toaster while playing hide-and-seek. The Ulthera machine, on the other hand, performs a nonsurgical face-lift without significant pain or downtime.

"The ability to change one's self-esteem and life is one of the main reasons I enjoy being a plastic surgeon," says Dr. Jan V. Karlin, medical supervisor at Nova Cosmetic Center. "There is nothing better than seeing the smile on my patients’ faces when they come in for office surgery checkups." Dr. Karlin and his team elicit these satisfied grins with a full menu of cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries, as well as slimming and rejuvenating spa treatments. He regularly attends conferences and all-surgeon hoedowns to stay abreast of developments in the field, such as laser technologies, anti-aging hormones, and less invasive liposuction. All his safe aesthetic procedures are done with the goal of helping clients look beautiful and feel confident.:m]]
Every face and body has trouble spots. At Laseit Corp, beauty professionals strive to shore up these zones with laser, med-spa, and salon services. In addition to providing laser hair-removal treatments using Candela laser technology, technicians correct sun damage and smooth wrinkles with DOT laser therapy and Fraxel laser skin resurfacing. In the med spa, carboxy therapy treatments target stretch marks, cellulite, and scars, and ultrasound-cavitation treatments liquefy excess fat and pats of butter. In the VIP salon, stylists customize the latest hair trends to suit each customer as nail technicians pamper hands and feet.
“In this world of modern medicine and technology, healthy aging should matter to everyone,” said Ismael Beloso, DO, medical director of Changes Medical & Wellness Spa in an interview in Insight Magazine. Armed with lasers and holistic therapies, Dr. Beloso and his team help patients to hold onto their youth with an integrative menu of rejuvenating treatments. Wrinkles, cellulite, body hair, and spider veins flee when faced with a laser's light, and weight-loss plans and osteopathic manipulative treatments (OMT) take a more natural approach to wellness.
