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.
One look at the menu of body scrubs and wraps at Deluxe Center Spa, and you might think you've gone to a restaurant, with treatments such as the sweet choco wrap, the cocoa scrub, and the red grape wrap. Many of the spa's facials also make use of natural organic elements to help nourish skin from the inside out.
The spa offers its share of technology-based therapies, too. A radio-frequency face lift is available to help increase elasticity, and laser lipolysis works to diminish cellulite and contour curves. Staffers also help clients stock up on products to fight the signs of sun damage from the comfort of their house, apartment, or Space Station dorm?where you're materially closer to the sun.
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
