Sara Manis created Beauty Essence as a one-stop shop for beauty services. From basic pedicures to spellbinding prom hairstyles, her salon strove to meet its clients' each and every whim. Not one to sit idly, she soon added 10 new stylists and nail technicians in order to let guests choose from a wider selection of experts. Today, the salon's range of specialties has expanded to include hairstyling and coloring, updos, manicures, spa pedicures, and waxing on a service menu complete enough to refine clients getting ready for either a night out on the town or a night at home sitting in a gold-plated La-Z-Boy.
Cosmetic procedures at the Miami Center for Dermatology take place under the watchful gaze of board-certified dermatologist Deborah Longwill and Lawrence Schiffman, who takes pride in youthifying patients without costing them undue downtime. Like ingesting bubble gum, infusing your skin with Botox takes about 10 minutes and produces results that last up to four months. Treated lines, wrinkles, crow's feet, and cow's knees are significantly lessened, and faces emerge looking freshly ironed. Mimicking technology originally developed for Saran Wrap, the Alma Accent laser employs radio frequency to melt away cellulite and tighten skin on large areas (front thigh, back thigh, and butt) and small areas (arms, love handles, chin/neck) in a procedure that's much less invasive than traditional liposuction.
Products from high-end brands such as Morrocanoil, Global Keratin, and Schwarzkopf fuel the haircare services at Nelly's Spa Hair & Beauty. And to make a day of it, clients can move from the salon chair to private treatment rooms or pedicure thrones for permanent makeup, nail treatments, skincare, and waxing.
Just beyond the walls of their medical facility lies an oasis where licensed massage therapists knead away tension, aestheticians perform indulgent manicures, pedicures, and facials, and licensed professionals eradicate signs of age with Botox and Juvederm injectibles. The seasoned staff also offer waxing, laser hair removal, and prenatal spa treatments, such as manicures, pedicures, and pregnancy massages, designed to ease the discomfort of soon-to-be moms. The studio?s sea-green walls, sky-blue throw pillows, and decorative anchors make it easy for guests to kick back on their imaginary beach blanket and imagine that they?ve been whisked away to David Hasselhoff?s living room.
Walking into Miami Plastic Surgery may give you an initial sense of déjà vu. That’s because millions of Americans have already seen the post-operative practice on their televisions, thanks to TLC’s Body/Work! The show, which chronicles the work of Drs. Michael Kelly and Carlos Wolf, hews closely to the practice’s reality, with the same large office that includes private consultation rooms and nationally-accredited operating areas, providing the most advanced in surgical technology. The procedures are also the same as seen on television, with the usual breast augmentation and lifts, liposuctions, tummy tucks and Mommy makeovers being undertaken. In addition, Miami Plastic Surgery offers non-surgical and minimally invasive procedures including hand rejuvenation and facial fillers, as well as endoscopic anti-aging therapies.
