Whether lightening the appearance of wrinkles or blasting away dead skin cells, the medical staff at both locations of Mosa Med Spa rely on up-to-date cosmetics equipment. Board-certified physicians Jose I. Garri, MD, DMD and Dr. Ramiro Peréz, Jr. lead a team of medical professionals, all of whom specialize in minimally invasive techniques such as skin-resurfacing microdermabrasion and anti-aging facials. One of the med spa's crowning jewels is the Candela laser, which heats away melanin deep in the follicles to remove hair from nearly any skin type.
Dr. Eddie Armas, director of Le Nouveau Eco Medical Spa, brings more than 25 years of experience to the clinic's roster of cosmetic and anti-aging procedures. His team of aestheticians fights wrinkles with various peels and collagen-boosting therapies or slims physiques with noninvasive body contouring. Medical weight-loss programs help dieters drop pounds under the watchful eye of a physician, and bio-identical hormone pellets inserted under the skin boost vigor and brain function better than an IV of Jolt cola.:m]]
From the moment guests walk or cartwheel into Ohana Spa of South Miami, a variety of stimuli work together to help them to relax: the sounds of calming waterfalls and the subtle smell of lavender, lemongrass, and peppermint. Owner Dionne Corona's eyebrow-shaping wizardry and custom facials have been featured in multiple publications, which isn’t a surprise considering Dionne has been in the business for more than 20 years.
Vida Day Spa & Wellness Center offers a full menu of professional spa services in a peaceful, intimate environment. Each treatment begins with a skin analysis that allows the spa staff to customize caretaking to each client's skin type. During a D'vine red wine and champagne facial, patrons' pores quaff exfoliating elixirs rich with red grape, grape seed, and wine extracts that deeply cleanse and exfoliate enervated visages. After the skin's dull outer layers have taken leave of the epidermal party—ensuring tighter, fresher-looking skin festivities—a skillful scalp massage stimulates blood flow and witty conversation about hair metal. To complete the 75-minute treatment, a cosmetic touch-up with mineral makeup and a duo of specialized eye and lip treatments polish the window to the soul and the portal to the esophagus.
Upon arrival at Myra & Company's multifaceted beauty emporium, guests are warmly greeted and ushered into either a tranquil treatment room or the state-of-the-art Pilates studio. Body-buffers can relax and unwind as an expert scrubber sweeps away dead skin cells during the 30-minute invigorating body scrub. Choose from one of seven specially scented scrubs, such as Sacred Earth, a mixture of vanilla, cinnamon, and shea butter, or Transcendent Sun, a holiday spice, cocoa butter, and superheated-ionized-hydrogen scrub. To loosen, strengthen, and lengthen the body, opt for a quintuplet of Pilates Equipment classes, an exercise system based on balance, strength, and flexibility. During each 60-minute class, students target a variety of muscle groups using a system of floor exercises and innovative Pilates equipment. Or, combat stress, aging, and the negative effects of the environment with a rejuvenating collagen and vitamin C facial. The 90-minute hydrating facial employs a bevy of antioxidants to stimulate cell growth and fight free radicals and beauty-ambushing wrinkle guerrillas.
Detlev Hair Studio's experienced aestheticians smooth out hirsute humans with follicle-felling treatments culled from its extensive menu of waxing services. Prep gams for a summery showcase with a lower-leg wax ($35), or prod eyebrows toward good behavior with a brow shaping ($23), transforming eye adornments into sleek lines or hidden Morse-code messages. Salon-goers can rid shoulders of fuzz ($25), neaten up a bikini line ($28), or de-fur chests ($40) while tucked within the angular, modern confines of Detlev’s cosmetically minded atelier. Detlev aids busy clients in their hair-removal quest by keeping doors open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week, removing unwanted stubble before morning commutes or after evening werewolf hunts.
