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.

Dr. Lopez can also tackle unwanted body hair, wrinkles, sun damage, and acne with her many in-office devices.

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.
Under the direction of an MD, the team at West Miami Health Center erases the line between health and beauty.

Injured elbows sigh with relief inside paraffin-wax baths or noninvasive laser therapy, and tense muscles drink in heat from smooth river rocks during hot-stone massages.
