A double board-certified surgeon with vast experience in cardiac, thoracic, and vascular surgeries heads up the medical team at Regency Vein Center of Miami, which treats unsightly veins through minimally invasive outpatient procedures. To see which disorders may be present the staff runs extensive screenings such as a Doppler ultrasound mapping of the legs, which pinpoints veins and detects thunderstorms occurring inside your calves. Vein specialists then determine the best procedure, focusing on minimizing scarring, bruising, and swelling. Treatments include the VNUS Closure Procedure, which uses radiofrequency energy to close up veins, and sclerotherapy, where injections attack the vein's lining until the body absorbs it.
At Med Spa UM, a team of laser technicians, carboxytherapy specialists, and estheticians help clients nourish their skin and fight the effects of aging with effective, high-tech procedures. Their facial treatments restore lost years without the need for surgery; injections of dermal fillers and Botox plump up sagging skin, and carboxy injections fight fine lines and wrinkles with tiny subdermal infusions of CO2. Customized facials and microderms revitalize faces' exteriors, sloughing off layers of dead cells to reveal supple stretches of skin underneath. Although faces are one of the spa's major concern, they're not the team's only area of expertise. They also coax stubborn fat deposits to shrink with advanced techniques such as the Full Contact laser, which emits low levels of infrared light, or ultrasonic lipo sessions.
Touch Laser Medical Spa specializes in aesthetic services that are more high-tech than a Google-document shredder. Those include laser treatments that resurface skin or remove hair, nail fungus, or spider veins. VelaShape and ultrasonic-cavitation sessions, which tone skin and contour curves, are among its other modern treatments. In addition to catering to physiques, the med spa also cares for complexions with chemical peels, dermal fillers, and platelet-rich plasma treatments.
The eponymous doctor of Pelayo Cosmetic Center estimates that he's performed at least one liposuction a day for more than six years. Liposuction is his specialty, but Dr. Pelayo beautifies with a wide array of face and body treatments. He and his staff's less-invasive beautification methods include Botox, facial rejuvenation treatments with plasma, sclerotherapy, and the stringing of holiday lights around patients' shoulders.

Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
I supplement my main services with LED light therapy and 24K nano-gold collagen gel masks.
What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
I customize my treatments according to my clients' needs. I like to do combination treatments. The reason my clients love them so much is that they see results immediately. All my treatments are very result-oriented.
Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
Having my own proprietary blends, I'm consistently striving to create better products by using the best and, in some cases, very exclusive ingredients, such as the Swiss apple stem-cell extract. I'm also very proud of the edelweiss stem cell with advanced technologies, such as nanotechnology.
Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Barry Resnik has a number of outlets for his talents: he serves as the team dermatologist for the Florida Marlins; he volunteers at the Open Door Health Center, which offers affordable healthcare; and, at the Resnik Skin Institute, he practices dermatology and dermatologic surgery for adults, kids, and snakes who can't shed because they slithered through crazy glue.
Dr. Resnik's skincare ambitions are vast, covering everything from medical concerns such as psoriasis and alopecia to cosmetic desires and skin conditions such as scar management and moles. Ever tech-savvy, the doctor's staff mans lasers to nix unwanted stretch marks and sun spots, and they also summon a Naturalipo liposuction machine, a skin-lightening system, and a stock of dermal fillers to do their bidding.
