The expert team at Vizia Aesthetic Laser & Cosmetic Surgery sculpts bodies like Renaissance masters. Surgical procedures tuck, lift, and resize body parts on clients and their intended doppelgängers. For temporary fix-ups, minimally invasive injections such as Botox fillers keep faces looking fresh and furrow free. The savvy techs can also perform a spectrum of noninvasive services, including laser hair removal and chemical peels, each of which help keep physiques in tip-top shape without significant downtime or recovery rituals.
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.
For more than 20 years, Laser Center of Orlando has been home to disappearing acts that would rival those of any magician. Instead of top hats and handkerchiefs, however, the center's tools of choice are lasers. In the hands of advanced registered nurse practitioners and certified technicians, these powerful devices can eradicate body hair, sagging skin, spider veins, acne, and even tattoos during meticulous treatments.
Though the lasers may be the starring act, other cosmetic services perform equally admirable feats. Anti-aging facials, peels, and microdermabrasion sessions restore a youthful glow to complexions, and dermal fillers such as Botox cancel out fine lines and wrinkles. Botanically based body wraps strive to tighten, tone and firm problem areas such as the stomach and neck, and an infrared sauna provides relaxation, detoxification, and skincare simultaneously.
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.
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.
