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.
But unlike a day-spa, Bay Pointe is flush with medical grade lasers and state-of-the-art acne treatments. Intense pulsed light eradicates imperfections, Botox and Juvederm deliver a one-two punch to facial aging, and concentrated ultrasound melts stubborn belly fat. Aside from a full house of purely cosmetic procedures, Dr. Janice Lima-Maribona also addresses all types of dermalogical skin conditions.
Led by Gabriel Salloum, MD, Miami Center for Plastic Surgery offers surgical and nonsurgical procedures designed to help patients meet their aesthetic goals. The Aesthetic Gallery serves as the center's surgery-free wing, where aestheticians beautify figures and faces in a swanky spa setting. Minimally and noninvasive services, such as Botox, laser hair removal, and chemical peels form the core of the aesthetic team's repertoire. The plastic-surgery wing, which includes six private treatment rooms, caters to those in search of more significant solutions, such as to lift eyes, shape noses, or banish unwanted bulk.
The center's 3,300-square-foot complex, envisioned by notable architect and designer Agustin Fernandez, steeps patrons in a sensory bath of postmodernism. Inside pristine white treatment rooms, leather lounge chairs present sleek vantage points to take in the surrealist artworks and plants that offset the building's stark architectural lines and corner-shaped corners.
Dermatone Skin Rejuvenation Center's licensed technicians and nurses wield FDA-certified radio-frequency generators for skin-tightening treatments that seek to mitigate stretch marks and cellulite. The therapeutic, deep-seeking heat massages existing collagen and promotes the production of new collagen in hopes of firmer skin surfaces. The clinic and its aestheticians, however, don't only offer this treatment?they also present a slate of facials designed with essential oils, clay masks, and vitamin C. Additionally, their weight-loss program, which is referred to as Last12Pounds uses vitamin injections, recipe books, and freezing one's snacks in a block of ice to help people look and feel better.
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.
Sometimes family can drive you crazy. Other times it can provide relaxation, rest, and beauty. For more than 15 years, the family that owns Cuerpos Care Medical Spa has done just that for their clients with therapeutic massage services, facial and body treatments, and chemical peeling. Various facial services get creative with the use of electric currents, oxygen jets, and platelet-rich plasma harvested from the patient’s own blood or stolen from a mosquito’s rainy-day fund. The staff also administers microdermabrasions and acne treatments to undo facial imperfections, and Botox injections help reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Through the concentrated use of infrared light, LA Tans & Aesthetic Center helps clients reach their health apex through internal cleansing treatments. Take a seat in the sauna, a steam-free booth filled with infrared heaters waiting to saturate the skin in radiance as powerful as the sun's, minus the damaging ultraviolet rays and obnoxious ego. The infrared heat targets fat cells, lifts them head over heels, and shakes their pockets loose of contaminants in the form of perspiration. Infrared sessions are thought to increase circulation and stimulate tissues, which may be useful for treating arthritis or limbering up for a strenuous jazz-hands performance.
