Dark hardwood floors and creamy white walls form the basis for Luxe Day Spa's tranquil environs, where guests bask in skin and body treatments that polish them from head to toe. An array of facials harnesses nutrients, organic enzymes, or high-tech LED devices to treat blemishes and reduce the signs of aging, whereas seven styles of massage melt away chronic tension. While reclining in a zero-gravity chair with a heated pillow under their neck and a toenail-themed romance novel over their eyes, guests enjoy relaxing pedicures enhanced by hydrating paraffin treatments. Meanwhile, specialists imbue or remove ink in the skin with permanent makeup, which brightens eyes, brows, or lips with smudge-free color that lasts for years, or tattoo-removal treatments that eschew skin-bleaching lasers in favor of invisible injections.
“Non-invasive” is the focus at The Body Shop MediSpa, where clients can find a trio of treatments to change their bodies without the trappings of surgery. Lipo-laser treatments help to minimize fat cells, smoothing skin around problem areas during quick, 30-minute sessions. As a follow-up to lipo laser or as a treatment all its own, power-plate therapy sends waves of energy across the body, causing muscles to quickly contract in an effort to boost circulation and help ferry away toxins. Finally, The Body Shop MediSpa's mineral and vitamin supplement program further works to reduce toxins by strengthening immune systems and promoting lymphatic drainage.
Guided by Drs. Silva and Uffelman, The Body Shop Medi Spa presents guests with a hand-picked selection of beautifying products, machines, and procedures. FDA-approved devices such as IPL laser hair-removal and ultrasound cavitation machines revamp bodies with future-grade technology. Botox injections smooth away wrinkles and more traditional cleansing facials rejuvenate skin. Taking advantage of modern medicine without the surgery, Thermage treatments stimulates collagen production for a pain-free face-lift. The spa also helps folks take the guess-work out of weight loss with HCG regimens that suppress appetites by administering vitamin B injections.
Nina L. Coletta, D.P.M., P.A., a doctor who completed her surgical residency at Miami Veterans Administration Medical Center, uses advanced technologies to treat podiatric issues ranging from arthritis to bunions. To heal sprained ankles and properly distribute weight on the feet, she crafts custom orthotics and braces using three-dimensional measurements. Patients also can opt for laser treatments to zap away toenail fungus, warts, or spider veins.
The licensed massage therapists at Massage Advantage dote on visitors with a slew of custom massage techniques, including Swedish, prenatal, and deep tissue. Armed with warm blankets and a credo to respect patients' privacy, therapists begin each 30- or 60-minute session with a discussion on clients' specific aches and ailments. Therapists can also haul their equipment to office buildings for workplace chair massages that help reinvigorate fatigued employees or stressed-out water coolers during 5- to 15-minute stints. Each succession of kneads is designed to alleviate stress, muscles soreness, and various medical conditions, such as high blood pressure.
