Dr. Richard S. Bragg believes that outward appearance impacts the way people feel on the inside. That’s why he built his practice with a passion for making people feel better about their appearance mixed right into the foundation. As director of Florida Vein Care and Cosmetic Center, Dr. Bragg follows this mission by treating patients with safe, effective, and advanced cosmetic treatments.
At two locations, Dr. Bragg and his staff utilize surgical and non-surgical techniques to perform procedures like repairing stretched and torn ear piercings, and eliminating red spots from the epidermis. His staff also nourishes skin with glycolic facials and nixes wrinkles with Botox Cosmetic and Juvederm.
The Bradney Center’s certified mug menders refurbish frontispieces with Botox cosmetic treatments, making brows furl-free and visages younger looking for up to four months. After a thorough consultation, Dr. Sean Walcott gingerly injects a few tiny, local doses of Botox around the forehead, brow, and eye regions, blocking surrounding muscles from pesky nerve impulses, which results in the eviction of wrinkles and loitering skin elves. Although patients may experience a fleeting nip of discomfort and slight bruising, the 10-minute procedure requires no anesthesia or extensive recovery time, unlike other invasive procedures and kangaroo boxing matches. Like a zen master’s newly renovated kitchen, the Bradney Center's tranquil hues and hardwood floors lend the office a soothing ambience.
Celebrity Medical Spa’s team views good health and well-being as a working partnership between client and physician. Recognizing that there is no one magic pill or drug, Dr. Eldar Baigabatov and Dr. Aida Behani use medical screenings and a constant dialogue with their patients to implement a total-body wellness program. With the help of nutritional assessments, the husband-and-wife duo can slim down physiques and devise custom weight-loss plans and body detoxes. Functional-movement screenings paint a picture of the body’s strengths and limitations, which the center’s trainers can then use to build an online personal-training program. To achieve an appearance worthy of the silver screen, guests can add the finishing touches to their slimmed-down physiques with Botox, chemical peels, ultrasound-cavitation treatments, and Sharpie’d beauty marks.
Led by board-certified plastic surgeon Jorge Gonzalez, MD, Elase Medical Spas' team rejuvenates clients with medical-grade laser procedures, skin treatments, and cosmetic injectables. As an academy for laser technicians, Elase unleashes an arsenal of advanced laser equipment upon a host of epidermal conditions. Sagging visages spring back to a more youthful state after laser skin tightening with a Candela ND:YAG laser, which helps rebuild the collagen and elastin scaffolding that keeps skin supple and plump, and supports the body's crew of construction guys. Laser hair removal eradicates unwanted strands, VelaShape helps firm up physiques with radio-frequency energy, and vein therapy reduces the appearance of veins on the face and legs.
Elase also offers treatments that tackle problem areas without a light show, such as cosmetic injectables—including Botox, Radiesse, and Restylane—which relax or plump up wrinkled areas. Alternatively, medical facials swathe skin in clinical-grade salves selected according to each skin's type and astrological sign.
In 2005, stress pushed Michelle McCormack to the brink of spiritual and physical collapse. Though her fast-paced finance job tested her limits, it had the happy consequence of awakening an interest in yoga, relaxation therapies, and holistic healing. Soon, she drew up a business plan and founded IHP Clinic Solution, a practice that serves the mind, body, and spirit of its patients. Today, at Aviva Health and Wellness Clinic, McCormack oversees the operations of wellness professionals who help patients become healthy inside and out.
Instead of just prescribing drugs or spoonfuls of sugar, Aviva's medical professionals thoroughly evaluate each patient. Then they recommend treatments that combine the best practices of conventional and alternative medicine. Medical services, including treatments for diabetes and heart disease, improve physical health, whereas spa and wellness services, such as acne treatments and body wraps, simultaneously improve looks and confidence. Treatments target a wide range of health- and beauty-related desires, helping patients lose weight, recover from illness, or reverse signs of aging.
Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
