The cadre of bilingual beauty professionals at Aventura Surgery Center & Med Spa focus on delivering tranquility almost as much as beauty. Massaging pedicure chairs, aromatherapy oils, and paraffin dips can enhance mani-pedis, and facials include a massage for the neck, shoulders, and hands. Skincare salves rely mainly on botanical ingredients, such as the aloe vera, papaya, and green-tea extracts that power peels. All this hands-on attention doesn't make the spa any less attuned to emerging technologies: for instance, the QuickSlim Lipo system uses laser light to shrink fat cells while delivering all the health benefits of a planetarium show, and an LED facial treatment destroys surface bacteria and prompts collagen growth.
At Laser Therapy Spa, technicians and aestheticians enroll in ongoing education classes to make sure their services stay on the cutting edge. The dual-focus spa encompasses two main branches. One centers around laser treatments performed with Harmony XL or Accent XL lasers, which can be calibrated to minimize unwanted hair or skin blemishes or to tighten lax skin on the face or body. The other side of the center focuses on traditional spa services, including massages and facials administered with Obagi and SkinMedica products. The spa even has a hyberbaric oxygen chamber, which clients can hop into during immune-boosting oxygen-therapy treatments or during a game of hide-and-seek with the office staff.
Supervised by Dr. Steven J. Rapp, Aesthetics & More’s epidermis experts soften fine lines and wrinkles with FDA-approved Botox injections. Each 30- to 45-minute treatment can relax crease-causing muscles near the eyes, brows, or mouth, helping skin appear smoother and more youthful than a newborn banana. Though fine lines may take a few days to melt away, the rejuvenating effects can last for up to four months.
The folks behind Tropicalaser view laser hair removal as a necessity, not an indulgence. That's why, like a doctor's office, they try to accommodate as many clients as they can. To swiftly and safely shed unwanted hair, they use lasers from reputable companies such as Lumenis, Candela, and Cynosure. On-staff medical directors and laser technicians implement strict protocol to maintain responsible use. Laser-hair removal is available for both men and women, and the equipment Tropicalaser uses can accommodate all skin types. Other services offered include tattoo removal and skin rejuvenation treatments.
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.

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.
