Educated at Rush Medical College in Chicago, Dr. Helen Donatelli uses her aesthetics know-how to rejuvenate her patients' skin using nonsurgical solutions. Dr. Donatelli personally treats patients, rather than leaving them in the hands of assistants, and is well versed in the latest techniques. Laser treatments zap wrinkles, whereas beauty injections plump up features for months at a time. Dr. Donatelli also treats more than just the face, offering revitalizing services for the hands.
Led by Gabriel Salloum, MD, Miami Center for Plastic Surgery offers surgical and nonsurgical procedures designed to help patients meet their aesthetic goals. The Aesthetic Gallery serves as the center's surgery-free wing, where aestheticians beautify figures and faces in a swanky spa setting. Minimally and noninvasive services, such as Botox, laser hair removal, and chemical peels form the core of the aesthetic team's repertoire. The plastic-surgery wing, which includes six private treatment rooms, caters to those in search of more significant solutions, such as to lift eyes, shape noses, or banish unwanted bulk.
The center's 3,300-square-foot complex, envisioned by notable architect and designer Agustin Fernandez, steeps patrons in a sensory bath of postmodernism. Inside pristine white treatment rooms, leather lounge chairs present sleek vantage points to take in the surrealist artworks and plants that offset the building's stark architectural lines and corner-shaped corners.
“My practice is really centered on the individual,” Dr. Amaryllis Pascual told NBC 6 News about her self-named clinic, Pascual MD Med Spa. “What I like to do is set up an initial consultation where I meet with the patient and we go over what their desired results are. I then take a look at their lifestyle and the person as a whole, and we customize a treatment plan that’s going to fit that individual.”
Dr. Pascual and three other on-staff doctors—Dr. Vijay Sharma, Dr. Jeffrey LaGrasso, and Dr. Jorge Gaviria—follow this regimen for each treatment they provide, whether clients seek cosmetic surgery, medical weight-loss supervision, or classic skincare services. They also equip their office with delicate lasers capable of softening wrinkles, ousting unwanted hair, and drawing old-timey mustaches on hamburger buns.
The team of talented aestheticians at Artistic Beauty Aesthetic Center vivifies visages with their invigorating microdermabrasion and chemical-peel treatment. Combining the exfoliating effects of the two treatments, the package leaves faces feeling fresh and youthful by removing the outer layers of dead skin. The microdermabrasion uses a pad of tiny diamonds to polish the face to a healthy sheen and to expose the natural, rosy glow of the head's magma core, and the chemical peel helps even out skin tone by peeling away ailing areas of the skin with a special solution. Each treatment takes about one hour to perform, and neither requires any downtime or knowledge of Elvish.
Through the concentrated use of infrared light, LA Tans & Aesthetic Center helps clients reach their health apex through internal cleansing treatments. Take a seat in the sauna, a steam-free booth filled with infrared heaters waiting to saturate the skin in radiance as powerful as the sun's, minus the damaging ultraviolet rays and obnoxious ego. The infrared heat targets fat cells, lifts them head over heels, and shakes their pockets loose of contaminants in the form of perspiration. Infrared sessions are thought to increase circulation and stimulate tissues, which may be useful for treating arthritis or limbering up for a strenuous jazz-hands performance.
Medical director Enrique Monasterio leads the professional technicians and aestheticians of Medspa Miami on their mission to bolster patients' outer beauty with medically centered spa treatments. Dr. Monasterio's career began in the lands of Spain, France, and the United States, where he learned European and American medical aesthetic techniques and that the red in all three countries' flags represents kidney beans. After that, he focused on private practice for 20 years and now lends his expertise in Botox, sclerotherapy, and mesotherapy to the Medspa Miami staff, ensuring that each procedure adheres to strict standards and patient comfort.
