Performing around 3,000 treatments every year, South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery aims to mend bodily botherations with noninvasive- and surgical-treatment options. Supported by a staff of doctors, nurse practitioners, and aestheticians, the center employs two plastic surgeons, each with roughly 30 years of experience. Before performing any surgery, these doctors meet with patients to discuss their expectations for the procedure as well as their medical history. For its noninvasive med-spa services, the aestheticians use medical-grade products or injectable dermal fillers to even out clients' skin tone. Additionally, the center features four different cosmetic laser systems, which can help to minimize the appearance of stubble, acne scars, spider veins, cellulite, or especially stubborn temporary tattoos
When husband-and-wife team Ernesto and Julie set out on their own in 2007, they were gambling on the fact that they could turn a fragile dream into a full business. Their initial lone employee has been replaced by seven in just one year, and the crew bustle through a salon that has the gleaming white expanses of a medical facility, but without the egocentric skeleton models. Patrons, who receive reminder text messages or emails before each appointment, arrive ready to work towards aesthetic goals with products from Obagi, Juv?derm, and Botox and a range of facial services. As massage services lure forth slow exhalations, the staff herald the arrival of new guests with cups of tea.
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.
Marshall Cosmétique beautifies bodies and faces with an extensive scope of cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries and treatments, from simple deep-cleaning facials, to a litany of lifts, enhancements, and touch-up procedures. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Deirdre Marshall has an impressive CV—with extensive training in breast reconstruction, breast augmentation, facial and hand surgery, charitable medical missions to Vietnam and Central America, and a mantle sagging under the weight of awards and certifications from top medical schools. Here, she helps her patients fight the effects of aging with breast enhancements, facelifts, tummy-tucks, and liposuction, but can also recommend minimally invasive treatments like Botox and Juvaderm for temporary improvement.
