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.
Equipped with creativity and beauty skills honed at institutes in Barcelona, Spain, seasoned cosmetologist and stylist Monica Rosental brought her hair and eyelash talents stateside when she opened her salon in 2003. Her background studying painting, music, and architecture lends the eyes of an artist to her services, such as sculpting hairstyles with fresh cuts, adding texture to strands, or splashing hair with new hues. Monica's specialty is hair extensions, and she advises clients on the best type to fit their needs before tucking in clips, attaching keratin tips, or affixing tape or curtain extensions. In addition to tending hair, Monica ups eyelash potential with extensions, dyes, and perm services. Soothing music imbues the salon's private suites with a relaxing atmosphere, and a free parking area boasts enough room to fit several cars or a single brontosaurus.
Through the concentrated use of infrared light, LA Tans & Aesthetic Center helps clients reach their health apex through internal cleansing treatments. Take a seat in the sauna, a steam-free booth filled with infrared heaters waiting to saturate the skin in radiance as powerful as the sun's, minus the damaging ultraviolet rays and obnoxious ego. The infrared heat targets fat cells, lifts them head over heels, and shakes their pockets loose of contaminants in the form of perspiration. Infrared sessions are thought to increase circulation and stimulate tissues, which may be useful for treating arthritis or limbering up for a strenuous jazz-hands performance.
Marshall Cosmétique beautifies bodies and faces with an extensive scope of cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries and treatments, from simple deep-cleaning facials, to a litany of lifts, enhancements, and touch-up procedures. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Deirdre Marshall has an impressive CV—with extensive training in breast reconstruction, breast augmentation, facial and hand surgery, charitable medical missions to Vietnam and Central America, and a mantle sagging under the weight of awards and certifications from top medical schools. Here, she helps her patients fight the effects of aging with breast enhancements, facelifts, tummy-tucks, and liposuction, but can also recommend minimally invasive treatments like Botox and Juvaderm for temporary improvement.
Stephani Nguyen spends her days staring deeply into people?s eyes. But she's not trying to discern the elements of the soul?no, the lash stylist is merely using her skills to apply synthetic, silk, or mink eyelash extensions that boost the length and volume of natural lashes. She can apply anywhere from 50 to 110 lashes in a single session, opting for the greater number when her client wants eyes that really pop. Stephani is also an aesthetician, and she uses her skills in that regard to gently erase acne and signs of aging.
At Bio-Fit Anti-Aging Institute, LLC, the physician-led staff employ everything from Botox injections to laser facials to help keep Father Time at bay. But what separates them from spas is their use of medical technologies. For example, they reach for ultrasound devices during fat-reduction treatments and prescribe medications, supplements, and vitamins during weight-loss programs. For signs of aging below the surface, such as a lung that has grown a long, white beard, they can schedule hormone replacement therapy sessions.
