At Mint Beauty Boutique's downtown Boca Raton spot, a staff of stylists and aestheticians stands ready to perform an unyielding variety of soothing services. Using products from brands such as PHYTO, Moroccanoil, and Schwarzkopf Professional, they deftly snip hair into stylish new cuts for women, men, and kids. Their color and highlight services add new dimensions to coiffures, while their extensions and formal styles renovate faltering hair dos. Meanwhile, skin experts increase the aesthetic value of faces with makeup applications and rejuvenating facials, and by recreating famous Monet landscapes on foreheads. The boutique itself calms busy minds with its minimalist decorative theme, surrounding visitors with white walls, counters, and chairs dotted only by the colorful labels of product bottles.
The highly trained dental do-gooders at Taylor Orthodontics investigate inconsistencies in oral architecture and meticulously fashion mouths with a variety of state-of-the-art orthodontic technologies. An initial exam, including panoramic and cephalometric x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The Invisalign process ($2,000–$8,000) eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. Incognito braces implement computer-aided design technology and robotic wire bending to shape 100% customizable brackets, form-fitted and placed behind the teeth, and traditional metal, colored, and clear-ceramic braces strive to straighten out teeth with their traditional tough love.
Headed by the trilingual Dr. Richard Silva, Silva Med Centre acts as both a family-oriented primary-care facility and a med spa.

At 1st Choice Immediate Care Center, a team certified in bariatric medicine—which focuses primarily on treating obesity—guides patients through customized weight-loss plans. Clients kick-start their battle against the bulge with a comprehensive exam and consultation. During the exam, patients undergo an EKG and physical exam to assess their overall health, individual weight-loss needs, and if the pancreas is still connected to the knee bone. The staff employs a thorough body-composition scale to measure BMI, to break down percentages of body fat and water weight, and to prove whether patients are composed of Claymation clay.
If chiropractic hadn’t intervened two decades ago, Doctor of Chiropractic Dean Mammales would have been an ex-wrestler with a metal rod in his back instead of the chiropractor (sans metal rod) he would later become. His chiropractor at the time—like all chiropractors—didn’t deal in metal rods, invasive surgeries, or overly potent medications. Instead, he realigned the discs in Dr. Mammales’ injured back so they wouldn’t pinch the delicate nerve tissue of the spinal cord. Today, Dr. Mammales carries on this chiropractic tradition, aligning spines and vanquishing maladies in patients of all ages without resorting to harsh measures such as surgery and kick-me signs. In addition to realignments, his staff renders massage therapy in modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, and trigger point therapy.
