No two aesthetic aspirations are alike. That’s the view espoused by Dr. Tamara Densmore, the founder and medical director of Revitalization Medical Institute, and her skilled team, who take pride in personalizing and customizing treatments at the RMI Med Spa. Weight-loss programs are created by measuring both current and ideal weight with measurements such as height, weight, body fat percentage, lean muscle mass, and body mass index. After measurements are taken, clients will sit down with Dr. Densmore to review medical history and current lifestyle habits. Then, Dr. Densmore will set clients on a path to a healthier lifestyle and a lean body.
Skin services such as facials and microdermabrasion treat complexions, while Botox and other beautifying injectables eliminate wrinkles. Dr. Densmore is especially passionate about turning back the body’s clock, and—as an advanced fellow with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine—expertly administers such age-defying treatments as IPL, and Fraxel treatments, and masks made of crayons.

Florida Laser and Wellness Center restores thinning manes to youthful fullness with FDA-approved laser treatments. One of the strongest hair-restoration lasers in the world, the center's Halo Elite low-level laser features 171 diodes and full automation, preventing the sort of laser-beam overexposure that accounts for 90 percent of all unwanted superpowers. In the 12-and-a-half-minute treatments, the lasers stimulate torpid follicles, increasing blood flow to the scalp as well as cellular metabolism to make scalp-bound hair-spinners kick into overdrive. The treatments can be highly effective, with patients typically seeing results within four to six months of treatment. The Florida Laser and Wellness Center reports hair loss ceasing in 85% of clients, coupled with a 78% increase in hair strength and a 25% increase in hair thickness. Most patients report little sensation during the treatment, allowing them to relax, watch TV, read a magazine, or compose scathing acrostics using the names of ill-loved school superintendents.
As the inventor of both a patented burn-treatment device and a scarless, internal breast-lift procedure, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Adamson places high importance on safe, up-to-date technologies.

Because hair grows in cycles, it may take more than six treatments to fully eradicate unwanted whiskers and ensure satisfactory smoothness.
