Under the steady guidance of medical director Dr. John van Wert, Cascades MedSpa carves a path toward beauty with the sharpest, most advanced techniques, earning it a feature in Central Florida Lifestyle magazine. Dr. van Wert and his team chisel bodies and smooth complexions with more than a dozen treatments designed to restore confidence to patients so that they can show off their swimsuit at the beach or the next board meeting. The med spa's services range from noninvasive microdermabrasion and massage therapy to LipoSelection treatments, which break up and remove excess fat from the love handles and thighs.
Under the medical direction of board-certified physicians Dr. Carson Bauder and Dr. Loakhnauth Ramkishun, the team at Wymore Laser & Anti-Aging Medicine combines cutting-edge equipment with a holistic approach to beauty. Anthony Filardo, DC, follows in the footsteps of his father and grandfather, who were natural-healing practitioners in Calabria, Italy. In addition to completing advanced training in anti-aging nutriceuticals and preventive medicine, Dr. Filardo is certified in medical acupuncture and is a fellow on the Acupuncture Society of America, Inc.
While Dr. Filardo employs ancient techniques to promote wellness, he and his staff also specialize in the latest nonsurgical cosmetic treatments. With a license in facial aesthetics, he expertly wields Palomar lasers to target wrinkles with resurfacing sessions and spider veins with intense pulsed light. Dr. Filardo also sculpts bodies with weight-loss programs and VelaShape cellulite-reduction treatments that leave skin as smooth as a valentine written in syrup.
When Aneta Filardo first got involved with laser hair removal, she was just a client. Impressed with the results, she became a Certified Medical Electrologist herself and, eventually, opened Winter Park Laser & Anti-Aging Center. In the decade since it was founded, she's joined forces with other medical and cosmetic professionals including a board-certified plastic surgeon, physician assistants, and medical aestheticians who use the latest advancements in medspa technology to address a wide range of skincare issues.
Today, staff wield Palomar and NaturaLase QS cosmetic laser systems to foil follicles, even out skin tone, and erase tattoos. Body-contouring technology uses focused radio frequencies to disperse fat deposits by playing their least favorite music. To complement the high-tech treatments, aestheticians can recommend skincare regimens that use medical-grade products, including the medspa's private-label line.
The team at Forever Trim Body Sculpting Center performs noninvasive body-contouring and face-lift procedures under the guidance of Dr. Michael Rodriguez. Drawing on a wealth of technology and leadership from Rodriguez, a fellow in the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the center?s technicians reshape the body and tighten the skin. With a Zerona LipoLaser system, they emulsify stubborn fat on the waist, hips, and thighs, making it easier to wear skinny jeans or slip into a toaster while playing hide-and-seek. The Ulthera machine, on the other hand, performs a nonsurgical face-lift without significant pain or downtime.
Velvet Wax Spa's technicians revivify the body with skin-focused services such as European facials, back facials, and microdermabrasion treatments. The spa’s experienced aestheticians swaddle countenances in skin-specific masks and employ French wax to remove excessive hair and glued-on berets. Formostar infrared body wraps promote blood flow and boost metabolism, and airbrush tanning adds a natural-looking bronze to bodies without UV exposure.
At Elite Vein Care Center, board-certified specialist Dr. Gregory Samano II and his staff place all their concentration on the treatment of varicose and spider veins. Specializing in these fields, they offer four effective treatment options, including the Venefit targeted endovenous therapy that delivers consistent heat via catheter to reduce discomfort and bruising while collapsing and closing enlarged leg veins. They can also remove affected veins through small incisions or cause them to fade with Asclera injections, turning veins into scar tissue that gradually fades away, unlike many bands that were popular in the 1960s. The team can also perform laser vein therapy, a noninvasive procedure in which the doctor uses powerful pulses of light to dissipate spider or varicose veins.
