Though SEE Eyewear?s specs are only found in their stores, their designs sprout from imaginations around the world. Winner of reader's choice awards in cities ranging from San Francisco to Nashville, SEE Eyewear stocks its frames directly from fashionable frame crafters and passes on the savings of doing business at the source to customers. The company calls on fashion designers from France, Italy, and other style-conscious countries to create one-of-a-kind designs to be featured on store shelves and client faces. Before that happens, though, each potential frame goes through a rigorous design and review process to ensure its distinctiveness and quality before it can be added to the national eyewear shop?s exclusive coveted selection.
From cat-eye to horn-rimmed and perfectly round to wayfarer-inspired, the cost of each frame includes single-vision lenses, giving customers the simplicity of a flat price that doesn?t require customers to pay an extra prescription fee or mine their own bifocal quarry. SEE Eyewear also trains its staff members to be aesthetically savvy so they can find the perfect fashion-forward, vision-correcting specs for any face shape, mood, or fashion sense.
The skilled hide-hydrators at Botanic Skin Care perform rejuvenating treatments using hypoallergenic certified-vegan products. Bodies rejoice at the prospect of a 60-minute wrap treatment in one of three varieties. The sea-mud wrap helps prevent clogged pores by outfitting bodies in an aqua-clay cloak that derives its vitamins and minerals from marine botanicals and blue-green algae. The detoxifying sea-salt scrub wicks away toxins from the skin's surface, resulting in softer, smoother organ suits, and the sweet-smelling chocolate wrap coats skin in a cocoa-based cream, stimulating the senses more effectively than a hug from a giant chocolate bunny. Two 45-minute exfoliating microdermabrasion sessions can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and lipstick stains left by the sun's unsolicited kisses.
Mers Optical's locations in Hialeah West is chock-full of designer frames well suited for all manner of face shapes and personal styles.

Dr. Raymond Frye kindles his passion for beautiful smiles by developing convenient at-home pearl-polishing devices to forge dentist-chair results. His ultrasonic toothbrush invigorates morning routines by scrubbing teeth at the speed of 30,000 dynamic strokes per minute. A built-in alert sounds every 30 seconds, letting brushers know to switch areas and reward themselves with a piece of saltwater taffy, before a two-minute timer signals the end of cleaning. For immediate enhancement, regimens such as the Icing 30 Carat system, JägerWhite gel, and Shazzam White gel brighten beams with varying strengths of carbamide peroxide, eschewing the expense and hassle of in-office treatments. Specialized whitening trays, which shape to fit the mouth in an easy at-home molding session, contour to the gum line to keep the whitening solution focused on its pearly objectives, never veering off to burnish marble statues or someone else’s teeth.
