The non-invasive and minimally invasive body-contouring procedures that Dr. Victor Otero and Dr. Thomas E. Young perform don't only grant patients slimmer physiques—they also win awards. Dr. Young recently won Best Overall Body Make-Over at THE Aesthetic Awards for his use of Zerona, Body Jet, SlimLipo, and VelaShape to resculpt one lucky patient's entire body. Young Medical Spa’s other physicians and technicians share the doctor's passion for non-invasive treatments: they harness laser technology to reduce cellulite, remove unwanted hairs, and mend other aesthetic issues. Other medical treatments, such as Botox Cosmetic and dermal filler, work to help patients regain youthful complexions. Despite its medical focus, the center keeps its facility feeling less than clinical by incorporating soothing spa elements, including a living-room-like waiting area and relaxing music, into every treatment.

The soothing specialists at Tranquilla Health & Wellness Center bestow calming services upon stress-pummeled clients and fete them with complimentary beverages within the center's comfortable, homey environs.
