Named Best Plastic Surgeon with an Artistic Streak in 2010 by the Miami New Times, Dr. Jose Perez-Gurri keeps up appearances with face-lifting Botox treatments and more than 25 years of doctoral expertise. Each nonsurgical facial enhancement uses a purified natural protein to smooth the lines in skin sands like a gentle wave. The in-office treatment injects small quantities of the protein into specific problem areas, blocking nerve impulses and reducing the muscle activity that forms wrinkles. Botox treatments are quick and require little to no downtime, ensuring that sessions are easily squeezable into lunch hours or after politely excusing yourself from a dinner date. Like invisible-ink tattoos, full results can take up to three weeks to appear, and results last up to six months. Dr. Perez-Gurri is expert at addressing any patient concerns, and he and his staff can do so in both English and Spanish.
Roma & Co.'s stylists update looks amid modern white decor. The salon's colorists each boast 15 or more years of experience, routinely verse themselves in the latest trends, and regularly attend high tea with Roy G. Biv. Armed with the line of De Fabulous haircare products, the hairdressing team revitalizes locks and constructs chic 'dos. Elsewhere in the salon, technicians groom surfaces with manicures and MAC makeup applications.
When the dedicated staff members at Christie Pea say they want to make their clients feel like royalty, they aren't kidding. The salon's menu abounds with regal titles, from the Dutchess and Duke basic treatments to all-purpose pamperings fit for a queen or king. These namesake treatments describe several services, including nail enhancements, waxing, and facials designed to treat acne, sun damage, and rosacea. Replete with photos and videos courtesy of Jessika Alexandra, Christie Pea's spa parties provide a smattering of services for ladies to celebrate their sweet 16, approaching wedding, or decision to wear a polka-dotted prom dress.
Common cosmetic concerns fade within the walls of Silhouette Spa as the technicians and their cutting-edge technology leave clients with firm, youthfully radiant, and blemish-free skin. A Candela GentleMax Pro laser system zaps unseemly stubble, and is so versatile that folks with any hair or skin type can benefit from it. The Lumicell Wave 4 device uses a combination of four modalities?including needleless mesotherapy and LED light energy?to minimize the appearance of cellulite. Derma Pod technology bombards the skin with microcurrents and helps improve tone as well as texture around the cheekbones. Additionally, the aestheticians can pamper clients with traditionally indulgent facial treatments that nourish visages using products from the PCA Skin line.
Aestheticians at Envidia Nails Spa cheer downtrodden toes and overworked fingers with coats of brightly colored polish and pampering techniques that help reduce stress. The signature mani-pedi begins with an invigorating heel scrub and a hand-and-foot massage, relaxing tense palms, stressed-out soles, and weary retractable claws. Armed with an arsenal of tiny tools, technicians then deftly oil cuticles and file ragged nails into burnished, smooth ovals. Coats of jewel-toned OPI or Essie lacquer then transform digits into mobile fashion accessories capable of dialing the editor of Vogue simply by pointing imperiously at a phone. Spa mani-pedis lavish extremities with the same care as the signature treatment, but further soften and smooth skin by submerging hands in warm paraffin wax and slathering feet in an algae mask.
