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.
Alpha Weight & Wellness physicians, assistants, and technicians incorporate medical-grade technology and aesthetic sensibilities into virtually every procedure they perform. Weight loss is a major goal for many of the center's clients, and the team accommodates these concerns with surgical treatments as well as noninvasive procedures. This range of options stems from the clinic’s arsenal of equipment, which can also target concerns on the skin’s surface. Crystal microdermabrasion smoothes texture, the Fotona Nd:YAG laser system eliminates unwanted stubble, and TriPollar technology employs radio frequencies to contour overall shape while transmitting baseball scores to the brain. Alpha Weight & Wellness Medical Clinic's board-certified medical director, Dr. F. V. Ello, also helps distinguish the medical center by designing and implementing a proprietary line of skincare products and procedural techniques.
The team at Forever Trim Body Sculpting Center performs noninvasive body-contouring and face-lift procedures under the guidance of Dr. Michael Rodriguez. Drawing on a wealth of technology and leadership from Rodriguez, a fellow in the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the center’s technicians reshape the body and tighten the skin. With a Zerona LipoLaser system, they emulsify stubborn fat on the waist, hips, and thighs, making it easier to wear skinny jeans or slip into a toaster while playing hide-and-seek. The Ulthera machine, on the other hand, performs a nonsurgical face-lift without significant pain or downtime.

"The ability to change one's self-esteem and life is one of the main reasons I enjoy being a plastic surgeon," says Dr. Jan V. Karlin, medical supervisor at Nova Cosmetic Center. "There is nothing better than seeing the smile on my patients’ faces when they come in for office surgery checkups." Dr. Karlin and his team elicit these satisfied grins with a full menu of cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries, as well as slimming and rejuvenating spa treatments. He regularly attends conferences and all-surgeon hoedowns to stay abreast of developments in the field, such as laser technologies, anti-aging hormones, and less invasive liposuction. All his safe aesthetic procedures are done with the goal of helping clients look beautiful and feel confident.:m]]
Amy Brock opened Fresh Med Spas with the aim of making a fresh start and taking “a new approach to the cookie-cutter med spa operations," as she said in a 2010 interview with Orange Appeal. From treating skin of all colors to giving complimentary consultations to new patients who are curious about skin-treatment options or what aestheticians look like in real life, Amy's vision is widely evident. She even tries to get away from the sterile feel of a traditional med spa by proffering decadent truffles and performing a variety of services, such as nine medical-grade facials or laser treatments to vaporize hair, tattoos, and wrinkles, in rooms with soothing candles or floral wall décor.
With 35 years of experience, the medical staff at Progressive Wellness Center leads patients in reimagining their current state of health. Weight-loss programs centered around HCG help clients turn bulky bodies into slimmer, stronger silhouettes, and aesthetic injectables work to tighten slack skin or shoo spider veins from appendages. Alternatively, IV nutritional therapy invigorates the body's absorption of nutrients and the brain's absorption of the subtext in the last episode of Barney and Friends. To keep patients happy and relaxed before and after appointments, Progressive Wellness Medical Center maintains comfortable seating and a café area stocked with healthful shakes, as well as organic coffee and green tea.
