In a burgundy and beige space decked with marbled floors and gold-framed mirrors, Bless Beauty Spa's aestheticians tend to weary bodies with rejuvenating spa treatments. They welcome clients for eye-catching manicures—painting fingertips with gleaming colors and _Whistler's Mothers—and administer soothing massages in private rooms. In addition to facials and laser body sculpting, they also perform teeth whitening and makeup services.
Dr. Kevin Tehrani's vast knowledge of plastic surgery keeps him in demand––he's a published author, an international speaker, an assistant clinical professor at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, and a go-to source for publications such as New Beauty magazine. But all this activity doesn't keep him from his patients. He typically spends an hour with them during their initial consultations, answering their questions, reviewing images of them on a computer, and projecting what they'd look like if they were made of pixels. Sometimes these consultations lead to cosmetic surgery, and sometimes Dr. Tehrani and his patients instead turn to such non-invasive aesthetic equipment as the Zeltiq CoolSculpting system. Ever the innovator, Dr. Tehrani launched an iPhone app called iLipo, which helps patients to alter their image on the spot to see how a given treatment will transform their body.
Clients enter through Lumix Aesthetics’ airy, sunlit reception area and walk down a warmly lit corridor to enter a treatment room. There, staffers greet them, ready to tailor treatments to their individual needs. A number of treatments utilize specially designed machines that harness light and energy to tighten skin and promote the production of collagen, which can lead to younger-looking complexions. Lasers can also whisk away unwanted hair or encourage the growth of wanted hair to achieve the client’s desired skin-to-hair ratio. In addition to laser-based treatments, Lumix Aesthetics also offers mud body wraps, which detoxify bodies with nutrient-rich sea kelp and blue-green algae, along with chai and soy.
Clients in search of nonsurgical solutions to their skincare needs can hop into Cavi Spa Skin & Body Center’s Visia complexion analysis, which peers into the topical and subsurface layers of the skin, exposing UV damage and pore depth, before serving up a personalized skin-youthifying blueprint. A course of medical-grade chemical peels, microdermabrasions, or injectables can leave complexions radiating with reclaimed vigor, or teeth-whitening procedures can remove stains and add subtle sparkle to smiles. Clients looking for more dramatic results can explore the doctor’s surgical options, which can transform torsos, limbs, and faces into stunningly youthful, and often undetectably natural, versions of their former selves.

Starting out as a single location in Florida, Tropicalaser has flourished into multiple locations across the state, plus one in Canada and another in New York. There are many possible explanations for its rapid expansion: affordable prices, the use of medical-grade and FDA-approved lasers, or its breadth of laser services. But perhaps the single-most appealing aspect of the laser hair-removal, tattoo-removal, and skin-rejuvenation treatments is that they're usually performed by highly trained and licensed professionals, who specialize in laser hair-removal. Each is well versed in the intricacies of skincare, so pores are in capable hands.
At Advanced Dermatology Center for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery, a team of dermatologists featured in magazines such as Glamour and Men's Fitness oversee an array of treatments.
