Performing around 3,000 treatments every year, South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery aims to mend bodily botherations with noninvasive- and surgical-treatment options. Supported by a staff of doctors, nurse practitioners, and aestheticians, the center employs two plastic surgeons, each with roughly 30 years of experience. Before performing any surgery, these doctors meet with patients to discuss their expectations for the procedure as well as their medical history. For its noninvasive med-spa services, the aestheticians use medical-grade products or injectable dermal fillers to even out clients' skin tone. Additionally, the center features four different cosmetic laser systems, which can help to minimize the appearance of stubble, acne scars, spider veins, cellulite, or especially stubborn temporary tattoos
Dermatone Skin Rejuvenation Center's licensed technicians and nurses wield FDA-certified radio-frequency generators for skin-tightening treatments that seek to mitigate stretch marks and cellulite. The therapeutic, deep-seeking heat massages existing collagen and promotes the production of new collagen in hopes of firmer skin surfaces. The clinic and its aestheticians, however, don't only offer this treatment?they also present a slate of facials designed with essential oils, clay masks, and vitamin C. Additionally, their weight-loss program, which is referred to as Last12Pounds uses vitamin injections, recipe books, and freezing one's snacks in a block of ice to help people look and feel better.
Led by Dr. Stephen Cosentino and his wife Lorena, an aesthetician and laser specialist, the medically supervised team at VIP Aesthetics performs minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in a facility that is both a functioning med spa and an education center. Dr. Cosentino partners with Empire Medical Training and often allows other physicians to observe him as he performs certain treatments. These can include tumescent liposuction or VelaShape sessions, which contour bodies, sclerotherapy injections, which battle visible veins, or photofacials and chemical peels, which soften signs of aging such as sun damage, fine lines, and “I Heart Grover Cleveland” tattoos.
Dr. Rodger Stratt, BodyCare's founder and medical director, supervises every single one of the clinic's procedures—which included more than 500 body contouring treatments last year. After spending 10 years as an ER physician, Dr. Stratt changed his career path and now specializes in minimally invasive alternatives to liposuction, such as Smartlipo and Liposculpture. Requiring only local anesthetic, they remove fat from specific areas, shaping silhouettes more effectively than diets or an hourglass costume. To complement the localized treatments, the clinic offers other beauty services, from chemical peels to laser hair reduction.
The doctors at Pascual MD have a comprehensive approach to each treatment they provide, whether clients seek cosmetic surgery, medical weight-loss supervision, or classic skincare services. They also equip their office with delicate lasers capable of softening wrinkles, ousting unwanted hair, and drawing old-timey mustaches on hamburger buns.
