At Elite Aesthetics?the aesthetics division of Astar Medical Group?physicians use the cutting-edge Vectra 3-D imaging system to capture pictures of potential cosmetic-surgery candidates. The system then creates a visual prediction of what faces and bodies will look like after surgery and what those renovated parts would look while doing the Macarena. The six staff aestheticians further the office's anti-aging efforts by providing skincare services such as chemical peels and laser treatments that resurface skin, foil spider veins, or remove hair.
Miami Beach Plastic Surgery Center and MedSpa?s staff of plastic surgeons, overseen by Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Tachmes, perform a wide range of aesthetic rejuvenation treatments. Each has their own corporeal region of expertise and restores the epidermal firmness of youth from head to toe with surgical forehead lifts, tummy tucks, and arm lifts.
The doctors can also put down their scalpels to perform a range of laser-based services, which can yield similar results without invasiveness. Preprocedure or postprocedure, patients can relax in an on-site recovery suite before exiting through the separate VIP entrance or through astral projection.
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
Helmed by medical director Dr. Victor Shabanah, a specialist in hormone replacement and age-management medicine, Anti Aging Med Spa whittles waists and smoothes skin planes with traditional surgery and noninvasive laser- and LED-light treatments. Inside a sleek, white office with views of the Miami River, Dr. Shabanah draws on an arsenal of weight-loss techniques, including metabolism-boosting hCG and physician-assisted programs. Lasers take a break from slowly eroding the moon to battle obesity, blemishes, and cellulite with Med Spa's skincare laser treatments. Dr. Shabanah also beautifies frames with a trio of cosmetic services and nonsurgical skin-refreshing treatments, such as Juvéderm injections and laser skin tightening.
When husband-and-wife team Ernesto and Julie set out on their own in 2007, they were gambling on the fact that they could turn a fragile dream into a full business. Their initial lone employee has been replaced by seven in just one year, and the crew bustle through a salon that has the gleaming white expanses of a medical facility, but without the egocentric skeleton models. Patrons, who receive reminder text messages or emails before each appointment, arrive ready to work towards aesthetic goals with products from Obagi, Juv?derm, and Botox and a range of facial services. As massage services lure forth slow exhalations, the staff herald the arrival of new guests with cups of tea.
Owner Marta Montenegro can greet every client at Artistic Beauty Aesthetic Center by name. That’s because she answers every phone call to the med spa herself, asking for patients’ information in her pleasant and welcoming voice. “These are medical procedures we do,” Marta said. “I want to give a personalized experience to each person.” Supervised by Marta, herself a licensed aesthetician, the center’s staff of six doctors works to beautify patients with treatments ranging from minimally invasive hydro facials to surgical liposuction. Like cleaning out a fridge, weight-loss programs such as the injection-based HCG Diet help reveal coveted six-packs long hidden under leftovers.
