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.
Esthetique's technicians employ a battery of noninvasive devices and solutions to enhance beauty by smoothing and resurfacing skin. Aestheticians administer alpha-hydroxy-acid peels to remedy brown marks or deeply exfoliate with diamond microdermabrasions that even facial texture and fade fine lines. For cheeks battling sieges of blemishes, LED blue-light acne treatments gradually banish clusters of stubborn pimples back to the sinister oil dimension from whence they came. Laser hair removal defoliates follicles from the upper lip to the legs, and VelaShape treatments provide subterranean smoothing by eliminating cellulite and tightening sagging skin on the thighs and buttocks.
When it comes to receiving cosmetic treatments, knowing a board-certified surgeon is at the helm can make patients feel at ease. When it’s four board-certified surgeons, even the strongest of worries are set at ease. Doctors Stephanie Stover, Richard Lung, Mario Reyes-Serrano, and Wendell Perry of Imagenes Cosmetic Center erase the effects of gravity by combining their experience in general, plastic, and reconstructive surgery in a supergroup of surgeons, complete with flowing capes and meteor-powered stethoscopes. Several of them are bilingual, and they all believe in creating the most natural results possible with such techniques as tightening the inner tissues of the face during a facelift to avoid a “windswept” look and lifting eyelids without changing a patient’s natural eye shape.
For more than 20 years, Clear Image Aesthetic Center’s fully licensed and trained staff has helped clients beautify all aspects of their bodies. Laser treatments that rejuvenate faces or remove unwanted hair allow each patient, like a grandma phoenix, to be reborn with a simple, noninvasive procedure. The center also provides counseling on weight management and a slew of fat-abolishing and contouring treatments, including VelaShape. Fifteen injectables such as Botox and Radiesse treat fine lines and crow's feet almost immediately. Other available treatments fine-tune the details, such as lash-lengthening Latisse and sclerotherapy, which brushes away spider veins' webs without the use of a broom.
Docpta Medical Clinic blends the best of a doctor’s office and a spa. Its medical practitioners can enhance wellness with medical exams, minor surgeries, and physical-therapy sessions, which employ techniques from laser therapy to muscle-warming ultrasounds. Meanwhile, its spa services encompass futuristic laser treatments—such as spider-vein removal and skin-rejuvenating IPL photofacials. For more traditional treatments, it offers facials that draw on ingredients such as vitamin C, trans-retinol, and red-wine longevity extract to brighten skin.
Juventus Cosmetic Center’s team of certified plastic surgeons fine-tunes natural features and accentuates silhouettes through surgical and nonsurgical means. The surgeons devote themselves to instilling confidence in their clientele by resurfacing skin marked by acne, scars, or sun damage, and restructuring areas such as the nose and ears. Opting for the least invasive treatment first, the team lifts sagging skin with noninvasive cold-laser therapy, which is designed to firm wrinkles and accelerate the post-operative healing process.
