Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Barry Resnik has a number of outlets for his talents: he serves as the team dermatologist for the Florida Marlins; he volunteers at the Open Door Health Center, which offers affordable healthcare; and, at the Resnik Skin Institute, he practices dermatology and dermatologic surgery for adults, kids, and snakes who can't shed because they slithered through crazy glue.
Dr. Resnik's skincare ambitions are vast, covering everything from medical concerns such as psoriasis and alopecia to cosmetic desires and skin conditions such as scar management and moles. Ever tech-savvy, the doctor's staff mans lasers to nix unwanted stretch marks and sun spots, and they also summon a Naturalipo liposuction machine, a skin-lightening system, and a stock of dermal fillers to do their bidding.

With its sleek, modern decor?white leather couches, gray walls, and purple accent lights?it's clear upon first glance that Biotech Wellness Center is not the type of med spa that generally prioritizes relaxation over high-tech treatments. But those who care about getting results may actually relax once they see Biotech's arsenal of lasers, dermal fillers, and IV therapy equipment.
Its laser and intense-pulsed-light treatments fight a variety of skin woes, including rosacea and acne, and can remove unwanted hair and spider veins. Venus Freeze treatments shrink fat cells with radio frequency, and platelet-rich plasma treatments inject platelets harvested from the client's own blood into faces to stimulate collagen production. To boost clients' energy levels without forcing them to spin around in a circle really fast to generate it, the staff administers IV treatments, which infuse bodies with vitamins.
Spread across three Miami-area offices, Vanidades Cosmetic Surgery boasts a medical staff that includes nine MDs, whose wealth of knowledge guides staff members in both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. In many treatments, doctors use lasers to perform everything from liposuction to hair removal to skin rejuvenation. To choose the right procedure, which may also include injectables such as fat grafting, the staff equips clients with an online animations library that displays the benefits of surgeries performed on all of Hollywood's most popular cartoons.
Institute of Health Services's experienced technicians harness the power of high-powered light beams to clear up unsightly skin botherations, including unwanted hair, spider veins, wrinkles, and acne. The pulsed light of photofacial treatments works to tighten up enlarged pores and wrinkles, as well as ease away redness. MicroLaser peels slough off dead skin cells on the face with the hopes of diminishing the evidence of scars, pigmentation, fine lines, and face-painted reminders to pay utility bills left by roommates.
The beauty experts at Bodyology Center specialize in nonsurgical rejuvenation treatments that take faces and bodies back to a more youthful time. For those not willing to go under the knife but unafraid of a few needles, they offer injectables and dermal fillers, as well as PRP face lifts. PRP—or platelet rich plasma—is drawn from the patient's own body and injected into the face to aid in the regrowth of collagen, blood vessels, and child-like appreciation of bubble wrap. Alternatively, the list of totally noninvasive procedures includes facials and oxygen-infusion treatments.
