Dr. Victoria Garcia knew she wanted to be a doctor from a young age. After extensive schooling and training, she founded Dr. Victoria Garcia and Associates, a clinic composed of board-certified gynecologists and obstetricians. Here, she delivers medical and surgical care to women of all ages, from teen gynecology to menopause and osteoporosis. In addition to traditional ob-gyn services, the clinic offers laser hair removal and prenatal massage.
Chic cuts and bright color treatments are just the tip of the iceberg at Betty's Spa and Beauty Salon. In addition to retouching roots and adding highlights, the staff adorns hands and feet with innovative nail designs and manicures that include indulgences such as aromatherapeutic oils, massages, and cooling gels. For the skin, the aestheticians clear away acne and reduce signs of aging with luxurious facials with high-frequency elements.
Aromas MedSpa is a full-service wellness enterprise with noninvasive treatments that heal ailments and enhance beauty. Specializing in skincare, cosmetic professionals aim Candela and Cynosure lasers at body hair, permanently reducing unwanted tufts or mutton chops. The specialists complement cosmetic procedures for the body and face with health services that eliminate unsightly warts and funguses or promote sustainable weight loss.
Aromas MedSpa's spa services incorporate new, uncommon technologies. For instance, the infrared sauna and the DermaLife Spa Jet create a two-part program of multisensory, holistic healing based on the therapeutic properties of infrared heat. In the dry carbon sauna, warm infrared rays beam deep into the body to catalyze sweating, ease chronic aches, recharge the body's inner reading light, and melt tension in the limbs. Then, the 60-gallon DermaLife pod immerses guests in clouds of soothing steam heated by infrared energy. Infused with aromatic essential oils and antioxidants, the pod's enriched atmosphere awakens the senses and conditions the skin while four LED stations illuminate droplets of vapor with colorful light shows known to soothe the overactive minds of most disco dancers.
Led by Gabriel Salloum, MD, Miami Center for Plastic Surgery offers surgical and nonsurgical procedures designed to help patients meet their aesthetic goals. The Aesthetic Gallery serves as the center's surgery-free wing, where aestheticians beautify figures and faces in a swanky spa setting. Minimally and noninvasive services, such as Botox, laser hair removal, and chemical peels form the core of the aesthetic team's repertoire. The plastic-surgery wing, which includes six private treatment rooms, caters to those in search of more significant solutions, such as to lift eyes, shape noses, or banish unwanted bulk.
The center's 3,300-square-foot complex, envisioned by notable architect and designer Agustin Fernandez, steeps patrons in a sensory bath of postmodernism. Inside pristine white treatment rooms, leather lounge chairs present sleek vantage points to take in the surrealist artworks and plants that offset the building's stark architectural lines and corner-shaped corners.
Miami’s American Laser Skincare works hard to provide an effective array of laser beauty treatments, from basic hair removal and skin rejuvenation to body shaping or overall cellulite reduction. Each procedure uses focused beams, targeted to specific areas and for their own unique purpose, to shape, sculpt and clean up the look of any customer on need. With dozens of locations nationwide, the unassuming office building location of this Aventura outpost feels more like a doctor’s office than a sunny beachside salon or calming day spa, but the medical just reinforces American Laser’s commitment to their craft. Detailed procedures lift, restructure and reshape skin, remove hair follicles without harming the body and provide long-term results for problems that have often been nagging clients for years.
It was time for a change for Graciela Castro. After years spent working in finance, she realized that her fast-paced career had hobbled her health, relationships, and ability to sit still for a whole rendition of "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall." So Castro learned to style hair, something she knew she would love once she observed how much a chic cut could lift a person’s spirits. It wasn't long before she opened Graciela's Salon. There, staff members apply the skills they learned at international style conferences to perform services with Paul Mitchell hair treatments or Gelish or Essie nail-polish hues. To enhance the mind-body experience she values, Castro makes clients feel at home by providing such complimentary beverages as wine and coffee, as well as free wireless-Internet access.
