With average temperatures in the '70s and '80s, it makes sense that Miami is full of body-baring outfits. All that skin is why people like the owners of Velour Med Spa were able to open a successful laser hair-removal business in 2005. With the hope of further beautifying bodies, they established Velour—a full med spa—in 2010.
Its certified medical aestheticians, who are supervised by a medical director, still perform the popular laser hair-removal treatments, but they also fade unwanted spider veins, smooth cellulite, and rely on intense pulsed light to refresh faces. In addition to beautifying clients, they relax with massages and mani-pedis, which take place in a pristine all-white room.
In addition to having more than 20 years of experience performing aesthetic treatments, Dr. Gloria Lopez supplements her own skills with lasers, high-tech machinery, and dermal fillers. She wields the LipoLite laser body-sculpting machine to liquidize and remove unwanted fat cells, and she uses the VelaSmooth hand piece to flatten the dimplage that comes with cellulite or thighs that simply smile too much. Dr. Lopez can also tackle unwanted body hair, wrinkles, sun damage, and acne with her many in-office devices.
Sanctum Med Spa brings together doctors, aestheticians, massage therapists, and nutritionists under one roof to perform a variety of cosmetic procedures, laser skin care treatments, and nutritional counseling sessions. Their service menu also includes Botox, laser hair reduction, facials, and sunless tanning.
"At RDY MD, we pride ourselves in enhancing the beauty of our patients," says Dr. Rafael Diaz-Yoserev, the clinic's board-certified cosmetic surgeon. He adds new treatments to his range of rejuvenating and slimming procedures as they become available, always aiming to boost a patient’s confidence in their looks. With an artistic hand, Dr. Diaz-Yoserev administers the newly developed 5-minute nose job with injectable fillers and tightens slack skin with high-tech lasers, rather than the wooden mallets used by other area physicians.
"It'll wear off in about an hour," says the dentist. "Fanks," you slur.
The lingering numbness after a dental procedure is one of many reasons people dread making the appointment. That's why the team at Dental Cosmetic Spa use OraVerse, a technology that helps restore sensation in about half the time as usual. This is just one example of the team's commitment to making visits not only anxiety-free, but legitimately enjoyable.
When patients sit down in the office's massaging dental chairs, assistants offer them amenities such as noise-cancelling headphones, exotic beverages and comfort pillows. A 3D television in each room works to keep patients occupied while the doctor looks around with a small, digital interoral camera, saving you the hassle of a lot of head-tilting and prodding. Meanwhile, aromatherapy oils elevate relaxation, as does soft music and optional nitrous oxide.
Lasers used to be the stuff of science fiction. Today, they're much more practical. Laser Med Florida's staff members use Candela Gentle Max Pro medical-grade lasers to remove hair, clear spider veins, tighten skin, and reduce wrinkles. More than that, staff members can wield powerful pulses of light to cure nail fungus. The full-service medical spa rounds out its services with nonlaser procedures. Its many offerings include microdermabrasion treatments, derma fillers like Botox and platelet rich plasma injections, and calorie-burning body wraps.
