Under the supervision of a board-certified physician, the professional staff at Physician’s Weight Loss Centers helps clients work toward overall wellness while shedding pounds with their six specialized weight-loss programs. After a consultation with a certified staff member, each client is assigned to the program best suited to his or her goals, current health, and willingness to put up with a stack of pancake’s “I miss you!” text messages. Programs can also be augmented with regimens of supplements and vitamins, including the fat-targeting agents of vitamin B12 injections. Not merely satisfied with supplying menu plans, the staff offers behavior-guidance plans, counselors, and medical consultations to ensure clients fully embrace new, healthful behaviors.
At Advanced Dentistry of Plantation, father-and-son duo Marc and Eli Schwartz pair extensive medical training with an artistic touch to polish and align smiles. The dental team's operating motto—“We create beautiful smiles”—finds its way into nearly all of their general, cosmetic, and restorative treatments. During comprehensive exams, the doctors Schwartz inspect mouths for signs of tooth decay and gum disease before leaning in to listen for the telltale trills of swallowed harmonicas. A digital x-ray machine peers beneath the gumline to find hidden cavities, and a DiagnoDent laser pen helps the dentists locate other minor issues before they become major problems.
Cosmetic enhancements—from thin, custom-made veneers to a full-mouth rejuvenation—fill the gaps in missing, chipped, or crooked teeth. The Zoom whitening system's peroxide-based gel imbues teeth with a stainless glow, and Invisalign braces straighten smiles without temporarily sacrificing their attractiveness.
TTI Organics is a destination for aesthetic treatments both dramatic and subtle. Detail-oriented beauties opt for eyelash extensions, or request a wax with optional Swarovski crystals. Crystals make another, more understated appearance?but with big results?during microdermabrasion treatments, which slough away dead skin cells to showcase the naturally dewy complexion that lies beneath. Microcurrent face-lifts tighten tired skin, making clients look so young that servers ask for ID before letting them order dishes topped with white-wine or vodka sauce. For a whole-body change, clients opt for spray tans, inch-shedding body wraps, and ultrasonic cavitation.
When the first Dermatone Skin Rejuvenation Center opened in downtown Miami in November 2010, it aimed to help clients rejuvenate their youth and embrace their outer aesthetics. Today, the franchise still relies on carefully selected treatments designed to erase years off their clients' appearances. Dermatone Skin Rejuvenation Center's licensed technicians and nurses wield FDA-certified radio-frequency generators for skin-tightening treatments that seek to mitigate stretch marks and cellulite. The therapeutic, deep-seeking heat massages existing collagen and promotes the production of new collagen in hopes of firmer skin surfaces. The clinic and its aestheticians, however, don't only offer this treatment. Led by Dr. Isaacs, MD, who has extensive training in advanced cosmetic medicine techniques, the staff specializes in performing Botox, Dysport, Radiesse, Restylane, Radiesse, medical-grade chemical peels, vein treatments, and skin care treatments. They also present a slate of facials designed with essential oils, clay masks, and vitamin C. Additionally, their weight-loss program uses vitamin injections, recipe books, and freezing one's snacks in a block of ice to help people look and feel better.
Performing around 3,000 treatments every year, South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery aims to mend bodily botherations with noninvasive- and surgical-treatment options. Supported by a staff of doctors, nurse practitioners, and aestheticians, the center employs two plastic surgeons, each with roughly 30 years of experience. Before performing any surgery, these doctors meet with patients to discuss their expectations for the procedure as well as their medical history. For its noninvasive med-spa services, the aestheticians use medical-grade products or injectable dermal fillers to even out clients' skin tone. Additionally, the center features four different cosmetic laser systems, which can help to minimize the appearance of stubble, acne scars, spider veins, cellulite, or especially stubborn temporary tattoos
Led by Dr. Stephen Cosentino and his wife Lorena, an aesthetician and laser specialist, the medically supervised team at VIP Aesthetics performs minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in a facility that is both a functioning med spa and an education center. Dr. Cosentino partners with Empire Medical Training and often allows other physicians to observe him as he performs certain treatments. These can include tumescent liposuction or VelaShape sessions, which contour bodies, sclerotherapy injections, which battle visible veins, or photofacials and chemical peels, which soften signs of aging such as sun damage, fine lines, and “I Heart Grover Cleveland” tattoos.
