Named Top Dentist by the Consumers' Research Council of America in 2012 and a four-time winner of the Best of Boca for dentist's offices, Dr. Steven London and his teeth technicians employ years of experience and skills acquired during continuing-education courses to deliver the most advanced and comprehensive dental care. Using a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia, he improves the appearance and position of teeth during the Invisalign process as one of Invisalign's Elite Preferred Providers, installs porcelain veneers, and performs other complicated procedures. He also screens for oral cancer, de-sensitizes sensitive teeth, re-contours gum tissue for aesthetic purposes, and reminds clients to avoid making their own fillings out of melted-down championship wrestling belts.
An infrared laser tightens skin by stimulating collagen growth, diminishing the appearance of fine lines. The nonsurgical process is just one of Vitality Laser Spa’s treatments, but it's representative of the rest: beautifying services that incur little to no downtime afterward. Because beauty treatments, like chicken soup, should only be handled by people with medical training, a clinical aesthetician and laser specialist performs each of these services under the supervision of a medical director. Their other specialties include removing hair with a laser, plumping fine lines with a collagen mask, and treating cellulite with infrared light and radio-frequency energy.
Dissick Medical Associates' skilled physician works to erase spider veins during sclerotherapy treatments that use hypertonic saline solution and cause minimal pain. After chatting with clients about which pair of veins to treat, the licensed pro injects blood highways with a specialized hypertonic saline that attacks the disfiguring cells and tacky wallpaper lining the inside of unwanted vessels. Debris and platelets create clots, fostering the body’s ability to paint over unsightly spider lines with fresh, new tissue. Each 30-minute session can typically treat uncomplicated spider veins less than one millimeter in diameter, and two to six treatments are recommended for best results. Dissick's all-women staff undergoes extensive training in medical assisting and technology to ensure treatments go smoother than a jazz musician's trip down a water slide.
The staff at Boca Anti-Aging & Aesthetics doesn't just remove the signs of aging from clients' faces—they may also help them attain more youthful figures through a weight-loss program or HCG therapy. The aestheticians treat men and women with a comprehensive approach, which could include the bioidentical treatment. This program analyzes individuals' saliva, blood, and dreams for their medical, family, and personal histories. It subsequently uses the information for nutritional planning and hormone balancing. For a smaller-scale, but noticeable change, clients can opt for microdermabrasion or specialty facials that plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
This is an energetically based, sacred healing space," says Dr. Laura Skellchock, describing the aura of Integrative Dermatology. "That's what I wanted to create– and you can feel it when you come in."

She has a sharp eye for catching lesions before they morph into melanomas, using a sophisticated dermatoscope to spot irregularities too small to be seen by the unaided eye.
