Dr. Richard S. Bragg believes that outward appearance impacts the way people feel on the inside. That’s why he built his practice with a passion for making people feel better about their appearance mixed right into the foundation. As director of Florida Vein Care and Cosmetic Center, Dr. Bragg follows this mission by treating patients with safe, effective, and advanced cosmetic treatments.
At two locations, Dr. Bragg and his staff utilize surgical and non-surgical techniques to perform procedures like repairing stretched and torn ear piercings, and eliminating red spots from the epidermis. His staff also nourishes skin with glycolic facials and nixes wrinkles with Botox Cosmetic and Juvederm.
Led by board-certified plastic surgeon Jorge Gonzalez, MD, Elase Medical Spas' team rejuvenates clients with medical-grade laser procedures, skin treatments, and cosmetic injectables. As an academy for laser technicians, Elase unleashes an arsenal of advanced laser equipment upon a host of epidermal conditions. Sagging visages spring back to a more youthful state after laser skin tightening with a Candela ND:YAG laser, which helps rebuild the collagen and elastin scaffolding that keeps skin supple and plump, and supports the body's crew of construction guys. Laser hair removal eradicates unwanted strands, VelaShape helps firm up physiques with radio-frequency energy, and vein therapy reduces the appearance of veins on the face and legs.
Elase also offers treatments that tackle problem areas without a light show, such as cosmetic injectables—including Botox, Radiesse, and Restylane—which relax or plump up wrinkled areas. Alternatively, medical facials swathe skin in clinical-grade salves selected according to each skin's type and astrological sign.
"There is nothing better than seeing the smile on my patients? faces when they come in for office surgery checkups," says Dr. Jan V. Karlin, medical supervisor at Nova Cosmetic Center. He and his team elicit these satisfied faces with a full menu of cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries, as well as slimming and rejuvenating spa treatments. To stay abreast of developments in these fields, Dr. Karlin regularly attends conferences and surgeons-only book clubs, honing his expertise on topics such as laser technologies, anti-aging hormones, and less-invasive liposuction.
An experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. George H. Pope outfits his office with a well-trained staff and the latest technology to meet clients' cosmetic needs. Like orange groves, unsightly spider veins can develop anywhere on the body and their progress must be halted by lasers—especially lasers that live in a comforting environment with soothing waterfalls in the waiting room and warmly colored furniture. During your duo of anti-arachnovein sessions, trained technicians will aim a Cutera Excel laser at your blood tubes, heating and dissolving the vexing vessels. Spider veins can take several weeks to disappear entirely, and the best results are typically seen after multiple treatments; today's Groupon can also be used to treat vascular lesions including telangiectasias, angiomas, and the rogue veins that live deep within your legs.
Backed by a resume that lists everything from helping 9/11 victims as an Army Reserve medical officer to appearing on reality TV segments as a guest doctor, reconstructive surgeon and contouring expert Dr. Nathan Pham aims to help patients achieve a dramatically different, yet natural looking body image. Dr. Pham and his team of assistants and technicians aid visitors through each step of the process, identifying their particular goals and then recommending a course of treatments to generate results. Although the center?s team members specialize in surgical procedures intended to create slimmer waistlines or younger-looking faces, they also provide a number of nonsurgical alternatives that rely on injectable dermal fillers and cosmetic laser systems to help patients achieve their desired look.
The expert team at Vizia Aesthetic Laser & Cosmetic Surgery sculpts bodies like Renaissance masters. Surgical procedures tuck, lift, and resize body parts on clients and their intended doppelgängers. For temporary fix-ups, minimally invasive injections such as Botox fillers keep faces looking fresh and furrow free. The savvy techs can also perform a spectrum of noninvasive services, including laser hair removal and chemical peels, each of which help keep physiques in tip-top shape without significant downtime or recovery rituals.
