At the new Golden Butterflies Spa & Rehab Center, medical staffers trained in high-tech, nonsurgical procedures team up with beauty therapists to transform bodies into fashion statements, independent of clothes. The team's most unusual treatments involve hormones and plasma formulas rich in platelet cells, which can alter body chemistry to catalyze rejuvenation and the cultivation of tiny victory gardens by the digestive tract's flora. Lasers do double duty as emissaries of smooth, hairless skin and leaner bodily contours, whereas cosmetic injections focus on creating youthful faces and obliterating cellulite. With aromatic oils and warm stones within reach, the gentle hands of massage therapists send waves of relaxation rolling through muscles via the careful acupressure of reflexology or deep-tissue therapy aimed at soothing connective tissue. Permanent cosmetics stands out as the only service with effects meant to endure forever, unlike promises of marriage to snowmen.
At Let's Wrap it Spa, a team fluent in English, Spanish, and Klingon helps clients regain a youthful appearance without the need for expensive, risky surgeries or other invasive procedures. Its signature treatments—organic wraps—expose bodies to cold, heat, and detoxifying volcanic ash to slim down physiques and reduce cellulite. Rumored to be part of Cleopatra's daily beauty regimen, volcanic clay rejuvenates, exfoliates, lifts, and tightens the skin. Other skin-tightening treatments at the spa include collagen-infused facials, electrotherapy, and vacuum therapy.
The weight-loss specialists at Slim Body Wellness Center employ the noninvasive technologies of Zerona and Venus Freeze to slim figures. Experienced staffers have performed thousands of successful fat-trimming treatments and have helped 99% of clients tighten their belts by an inch or more after six Zerona treatments. Their LED-therapy treatments, meanwhile, shower exteriors in healing light, clarifying skin and imbuing it with the youthful radiance of a newborn galaxy.
Behind the vertical columns and manicured hedgerows of the art-deco district's Ocean Reef hotel, the salon and spa’s aestheticians and massage therapists pamper bodies with nourishing head-to-toe therapies. Mere steps from Miami Beach and bustling Collins Avenue, the spa is surrounded by myriad local promenades on which to flaunt physiques newly nourished by hair, body, and facial treatments, as well as waxing. Clients can park cars or their Shetland ponies on the street, or take advantage of Ocean Reef's valet service.
A pure white couch with perfectly square quilting rests beneath chrome artwork that mimics the couch's geometrical designs. Clients perch here as they await their appointments, during which experienced aestheticians revive epidermal layers with exclusive products, the center's proprietary line of skincare elixirs, designed to defy aging without the disappointment of searching for the fountain of youth’s wild-cherry-flavored nozzle.
At BMS Therapy, muscle tension gives in to the rehearsed hands of licensed massage therapists, who treat their clients to aromatherapy, sports, and neuromuscular bodywork treatments. The staff also uses radiofrequency devices on the face and body in order to defeat acne, fine lines, and fat. Like the bullhorn that first blared messages across the Atlantic, the staff makes communication easy, as they speak both English and Spanish.
