A tablespoon of honey, chopped and pressed vegetables, and a pinch of salt: it?s not the recipe for a summer salad, but for Luna Skin Care and Spa?s customized organic body treatments. Within the confines of their small and personable salon, the treatments mix raw, organic ingredients while the client waits, ensuring maximum freshness and a blend that caters to favorite fragrances and personal skincare needs. The spa?s owner Marianela Arauco, a licensed massage therapist and aesthetician for over 15 years, specializes in a variety of massages, including shiatsu, Japanese acupressure, and reflexology. Her hands sweep over skin, helping to treat issues such as chronic anxiety, muscle tension, or the inability to remove cruel signs taped onto one?s back by guidance counselors.
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.
Spread across three Miami-area offices, Vanidades Cosmetic Surgery boasts a medical staff that includes nine MDs, whose wealth of knowledge guides staff members in both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. In many treatments, doctors use lasers to perform everything from liposuction to hair removal to skin rejuvenation. To choose the right procedure, which may also include injectables such as fat grafting, the staff equips clients with an online animations library that displays the benefits of surgeries performed on all of Hollywood's most popular cartoons.
As part of the team at Churchill's Day Spa, massage therapist Claudine handles the relaxation and pain-relief side of things.
