Under the tutelage of board-certified doctors, the staff at Miami MD Spa utilizes cutting-edge laser technology to help clients attain smooth skin and revitalized features. The FDA-approved Candela GentleYAG laser machine plies hair from men's and women's skin through a small applicator tip that leaves regions such as the legs, back, and face free of unwanted body hair and necks free of steel bolts. While high-tech gadgets flicker and pulse, spa treatments such as medical peels, facials, and microdermabrasions actively encourage youthful color and firm texture to return to a client's face after years of working as a California Raisin impersonator.
Madelaine Izquierdo, a board-certified physician's assistant, gently smoothes faces with Botox Cosmetic injections. After a complimentary consultation and skin analysis, Madelaine carefully injects Botox protein into forehead lines, pleats between eyes, or ruts created by adventuresome eyebrows' off-road vehicles. The treatment works to stop the subdermal muscle contractions that crinkle skin, smoothing the selected area for up to four months. The process creates minimal discomfort, with patients back on their feet in no time. Botox can also help prevent excessive sweating when injected into problematic areas such as armpits or a middle-school gym class.
Physicians Weight Loss Centers pepper the nation, doling out slim-down tips honed during the course of three decades in business. Each center staffs a physician who, in tandem with a team of skilled counselors, selects one of six weight-loss and lifestyle programs to guide each client toward his or her desired results. The center?s sextet of plans are tailored to those who prefer not to exercise, those who travel often, those who cook at home, and those who cook in nonfunctional stage kitchens. Patients chat with their counselors often, soaking up the tips the staffers have learned from continual training programs. Clients are encouraged to build a bond with their counselor, as camaraderie not only eases the process but also improves one?s chances of finding a lifelong three-legged-race partner.
At Solution Medical Esthetic, owner Jackie Valdes and her team of aestheticians perform cosmetic services backed by medical research to enhance the appearances and confidence levels of their clients. They renew fa?ades with treatments ranging from microdermabrasion to anti-aging facials.

Promoting lifestyle changes to complement their beauty services, Solution?s staff offers nutritional counseling.
In her 20 years in the aesthetics field, Virginia Garcia has built quite a multifaceted resume. She has not only worked as a medical aesthetician and permanent-makeup artist, but also as a journalist who has written articles on the topics of nutrition and professional aesthetics. Not surprisingly then, her service menu at LunaSkin is expansive, incorporating everything from lash extensions to body-contouring treatments, including ultrasonic cavitation and herbal wraps.
She performs her longtime specialties, too, of course, with facials that often include such add-ons as radio-frequency treatments, ultrasound therapy, and buckets of glitter, as well as permanent makeup for the brows, eyes, and lips.
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.
