The therapists at Medical Massage Professionals don't simply point and push. Instead, they tailor their services to each client's needs—something they've been doing for the last decade. Founder Marian Sotelo-Paz has more than 20 years of industry experience under her fingers. At three locations around Miami, she's built a team of similarly seasoned professionals. All that experience is reflected in the team's versatility, which allows it to offer massage services for pain management, injury recovery, simple relaxation, and a variety of other ailments and issues.
Dasol takes the ?med? part of med-spa seriously: it?s staffed by a team of board-certified cosmetic surgeons, registered nurses, and aestheticians. Inside a building that resembles a stately Southern villa, they turn to the latest aesthetic treatments to ward off wrinkles, dark spots, sagging skin, and other signs of aging or extended vacations to the sun. Time-tested spa treatments are coupled with products from SkinCeuticals and Obagi and advanced technology including the skin-firming eMatrix system, wrinkle-plumping dermal fillers, and the highly publicized HydraFacial.
LVS Salon Group's continually educated staff indulges clients' every feature with a kaleidoscopic slate of hair, nail, and skin services. While a stylist brightens a mane with highlights or blow-dries locks, a multitasking patron can lend paws to a technician for a professional manicure and pedicure crowned in durable gel lacquers or acrylic nails. For at-home beauty care or to sate the whines of unpampered mannequins, the salon stocks a brigade of products that includes Creative Nail Design, Matrix, Marilyn Brush, and Moroccanoil.
It's not enough to be just pretty. The staff at Isis Wellness Nail Bar describes the salon as a "nail clinic" in which each mani-pedi results in more than just glossy nails, but also encourages healthy hands and feet. Technicians shape nails with disposable files and scrub away dead skin with disposable buffers and spongers. All tools that are nondisposable are disinfected with a hospital-grade autoclave, more effective than soaking them in butter. But this is not a sterile, cold salon. Aqua-blue recliners cosset customers during treatments, and they can add on mini facials and hot-stone foot massages for ultimate pampering.
Kids often take after their parents, and Armin Khavari is no exception. After growing up watching his parents run a beauty business, it seemed only natural for him to use his own experience and found Armin Salon-Spa. Alongside a group of skilled stylists, Armin clips and reshapes hair into trendy forms, colors locks with bold new hues, and conditions strands. On the spa side, massage therapists knead away stress, nail technicians retouch hands and feet, and aestheticians restore skin's youthful vitality and original shrink wrap.
Upon arrival at Myra & Company's multifaceted beauty emporium, guests are warmly greeted and ushered into either a tranquil treatment room or the state-of-the-art Pilates studio. Body-buffers can relax and unwind as an expert scrubber sweeps away dead skin cells during the 30-minute invigorating body scrub. Choose from one of seven specially scented scrubs, such as Sacred Earth, a mixture of vanilla, cinnamon, and shea butter, or Transcendent Sun, a holiday spice, cocoa butter, and superheated-ionized-hydrogen scrub. To loosen, strengthen, and lengthen the body, opt for a quintuplet of Pilates Equipment classes, an exercise system based on balance, strength, and flexibility. During each 60-minute class, students target a variety of muscle groups using a system of floor exercises and innovative Pilates equipment. Or, combat stress, aging, and the negative effects of the environment with a rejuvenating collagen and vitamin C facial. The 90-minute hydrating facial employs a bevy of antioxidants to stimulate cell growth and fight free radicals and beauty-ambushing wrinkle guerrillas.
