When Aneta Filardo first got involved with laser hair removal, she was just a client. Impressed with the results, she became a Certified Medical Electrologist herself and, eventually, opened Winter Park Laser & Anti-Aging Center. In the decade since it was founded, she's joined forces with other medical and cosmetic professionals including a board-certified plastic surgeon, physician assistants, and medical aestheticians who use the latest advancements in medspa technology to address a wide range of skincare issues.
Today, staff wield Palomar and NaturaLase QS cosmetic laser systems to foil follicles, even out skin tone, and erase tattoos. Body-contouring technology uses focused radio frequencies to disperse fat deposits by playing their least favorite music. To complement the high-tech treatments, aestheticians can recommend skincare regimens that use medical-grade products, including the medspa's private-label line.
Velvet Wax Spa's technicians revivify the body with skin-focused services such as European facials, back facials, and microdermabrasion treatments. The spa’s experienced aestheticians swaddle countenances in skin-specific masks and employ French wax to remove excessive hair and glued-on berets. Formostar infrared body wraps promote blood flow and boost metabolism, and airbrush tanning adds a natural-looking bronze to bodies without UV exposure.
Board-certified registered nurse practitioner Sandy Hutnick heads up the team of licensed aestheticians at 180medspa, where specialists pay close attention to every detail of the aesthetic treatments they administer. At locations in Winter Park and Boca Raton, Hutnick and her staff break up fat cells and rejuvenate skin using Lipo-Light therapy, facials, and other services. They specialize in fractional skin resurfacing, using laser technology to diminish scars, wrinkles, and blemishes, leaving smoother skin with an even tone. The team can also use the MedLite C6 laser to erase unfortunate tattoos, sending them back to the vault beneath Walt Disney's mansion where all bad illustrations originate. Laser hair removal, spider-vein therapy, and Botox injections round out the med spa's extensive catalog of beauty enhancement treatments.
For more than two decades, the skilled micropigmentation artists at Forever Beautifuls have transformed faces with subtle permanent makeup. In addition to adorning façades with ever-present eyeliner, lip color, beauty marks, and more, Forever Beautifuls can also help fade unwanted ink with the use of a tattoo-removing liquid.
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.
