Madelaine Izquierdo, a board-certified physician's assistant, gently smoothes faces with Botox Cosmetic injections. After a complimentary consultation and skin analysis, Madelaine carefully injects Botox protein into forehead lines, pleats between eyes, or ruts created by adventuresome eyebrows' off-road vehicles. The treatment works to stop the subdermal muscle contractions that crinkle skin, smoothing the selected area for up to four months. The process creates minimal discomfort, with patients back on their feet in no time. Botox can also help prevent excessive sweating when injected into problematic areas such as armpits or a middle-school gym class.
At first glance, Lil Miss Ooh La-la looks a lot like your average up-scale salon, but with a few noticeable differences. Touches of fuschia-pink pepper the interior, popping against the sleek black chairs and elegant black and white wallpaper. The pedicure stations are situated a little closer to the ground, and the white foot baths are filled with colorful, floating flowers. The patrons sip beverages as they relax in plush, pink robes––but instead of champagne, they have pink lemonade in their glasses.
These whimsical touches make all the more sense when you consider the fact that most of the clients here are under age 13. Girls as young as 3 come to Lil Miss Ooh La-la for some age-appropriate pampering or to celebrate a special occasion with their friends. Spa parties can include everything from mani-pedis to glittery up-dos to fashion shows with music, and moms can even get in on the fun too, by enjoying adult-style mani-pedis and a glass of wine.
At My Massage Places, massage therapists ease ailments ranging from tension headaches to high blood pressure with therapeutic kneads from a broad spectrum of styles.

The team helms noninvasive ultrasonic-cavitation treatments, too, which aim to leave physiques more streamlined than a school of dolphins riding bobsleds.
