Professional stylist Carla Acosta boasts an impressive CV: she began her career in the cosmetology industry at age 14, she served as a personal stylist to a Miss Universe pageant winner, and today, she helps both men and women reclaim full, lustrous heads of hair with high-tech hair-restoration treatments.
Acosta and her team of seasoned hair-restoration therapists welcome clients into a soothing, quasi-futuristic clinic full of white leather seating and sleek, streamlined furniture, then help forge individualized treatment packages based on each patient's specific needs. They might use specially formulated Keraplha Plus Keratin to nourish guests’ follicles, or human-hair wigs and extensions to create new looks as stunning as a bull keeping its hooves to itself in a china shop. The staff can perform in-studio or at-home low-level laser therapy, employing tried-and-tested techniques of hair restoration, improving blood flow to hair strands, and halting the spread of hair loss where it stands.
After a complimentary hair and scalp analysis that examines pates at the microscopic level, certified technicians consider a trio of tress-fortifying techniques suitable for both men and women. In-office laser therapy and take-home LED combs from brands such as Virtual Reality and Virtuesse are each designed to stimulate growth, while MicroLace replacement seamlessly bonds real hair to the scalp. All three options result in hair that can be washed, tugged, and subjected to the active lifestyle favored by rugby-playing Rapunzels. Those looking to shine up existing strands receive smoothing keratin treatments, and hair extensions and natural wigs lengthen locks.
Drawing on training in ophthalmology, Dr. Joseph Selem specializes in surgeries that restore aesthetics and function to eyes and their surrounding skin. On the cosmetic side, his quick blepharoplasty surgeries reduce droops on upper and lower eyelids, and the restorative reach of his deftly wielded scalpel extends to sagging cheeks and chins. Capable of repairing more than just looks, Dr. Selem also offers medical treatments as part of his surgical repertoire. His careful eye exams can pinpoint excisable or otherwise treatable causes of vision loss, such as cataracts, glaucoma, or wearing sunglasses inside.
"At RDY MD, we pride ourselves in enhancing the beauty of our patients," says Dr. Rafael Diaz-Yoserev, the clinic's board-certified cosmetic surgeon. He adds new treatments to his range of rejuvenating and slimming procedures as they become available, always aiming to boost a patient’s confidence in their looks. With an artistic hand, Dr. Diaz-Yoserev administers the newly developed 5-minute nose job with injectable fillers and tightens slack skin with high-tech lasers, rather than the wooden mallets used by other area physicians.
As Dr. Janice Lima-Maribona knows well, stress can wreck havoc on skin. That's why the 13-year medical veteran puts as much value on keeping her clients relaxed as she does on her high-tech treatments. According to the doc, her whole medical practice is predicated on the concept of peace of mind. To that end, she has cloaked the med spa in cool, soothing earth tones, and she marshalls her naturally warm disposition into a friendly, attentive form of bedside manner. The end result is an space that feels a lot more like a day-spa than a doctor's office.
