Beauty of Wax has banished unwanted body hair with waxing services in a clean and relaxed environment for 17 years. During that time, the salon has developed a specialty for the meticulous task of sculpting eyebrows. Using natural beeswax, the staff remove stray hairs to frame the eyes and stop constant comparisons to Groucho Marx. They retain the same attention to detail when waxing any portion of the body or applying Swarovski-cut crystals to the bikini zone. Using techniques such as cavitation, vacuum therapy, passive gymnastics, radio-frequency therapy, and body wrapping, in addition to an array of facials and relaxing massage services, won the spot the Hollywood Gazette's 2010 award for Best Place to Be Pampered.
Since 1974, Hollywood Institute of Beauty Careers' dedicated instructors have edified spa and salon hopefuls in the tricks of the beauty-boosting trade. Under the watchful eye of a seasoned professional, each soon-to-be beautician performs a variety of services on visitors to earn the certification of a license massage therapist or the gilded epaulettes of an aesthetician. At both the Hollywood and Miami Beach locations, clients can help students achieve their goals by simply indulging in rejuvenating facials, stylish cuts and colors, and relaxing rubdowns.

The three doctors behind BPT Medical Center each possess a particular specialty and combine their knowledge to offer a range of services. Dr. Ronald Lubetsky, a medical doctor, treats everything from colds to unhealthy lifestyles, supplementing exercise regimens and healthy diets with prescribed weight-loss medications. Physician's assistant Ron Sherry backs up Dr. Lubetsky; while one takes x-rays, injects facial plasma, or oversees lab work, the other conducts physicals, hormone-therapy sessions, or orchestras of ultrasound machines.
Lubetsky and Sherry approach patient care from the inside out, whereas Doctor of Chiropractic Patrick Fenelus takes the opposite tactic. He helps patients manage pain and stress through musculoskeletal adjustments and massages.
Carla Cardoso had one question in mind when she opened Massage Rio Spa: “what can I do to help people?” A massage therapist, aesthetician, and practical nurse by trade, Carla realized that she had many ways to help others relax and feel beautiful.
She draws on her diverse skill set at Massage Rio Spa, alleviating stress with barefoot shiatsu massages in the morning and soothing skin with deep-cleansing facials by the afternoon. Carla is joined by a team of similarly skilled technicians who specialize in massages, facials, waxing, and airbrush tanning. Clients can even get an application of permanent makeup, which saves the hassle of getting ready in your neighbor's bathroom every morning.
