Occasional pops of color accent L.G. Diagnostic, where clinical-grade cosmetic treatments propel bodies and faces toward their best-looking selves. Services are spread across a spectrum of intensiveness, ranging from photofacials and microdermabrasion treatments to eyelid lifts and permanent makeup. Noncosmetic services are also featured on the treatment menu, including massages that dispel tension and physical-therapy sessions that rehabilitate injured muscles by encouraging them to talk about their childhood fears.
Dr. Rodrigo Belalcazar, medical director of Vision Specialty Care, has carved a career out of making eyes more eagle-like with a resumé counting more than 2,500 cataract and corneal transplants and more than 4,000 LASIK procedures. He and his team of ophthalmologists and optometrists continue to add to those numbers, while also offering routine eye exams and treating eye diseases. In addition to four clinic locations, a roving mobile unit brings vision care to those not able to travel.
Dr. Rita M. Claro, the lead dentist at Kendall Dental Care and Miami Dental Care, brings more than 20 years of clinical experience to the two practices. Under Dr. Claro's guidance, dentists and dental hygienists ensure strong and healthy teeth with preventive exams and cleanings as well as whitening treatments. Of course, cavities, chipped teeth, and microscopic ivory poachers still show up every now and then. The dental professionals treat these sorts of issues with restorative procedures such as fillings, porcelain veneers, and implants.
IV nutrition therapy. Hyperbaric chamber. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) anti-aging therapy. If an ambitious sci-fi writer invented a med spa floating around outer space, she might describe it with words like these?but Bonsai MedSpa and Cosmetic Surgery, with its vernacular of advanced equipment and treatments, are anchored firmly on spaceship earth. The medical aestheticians?led by a licensed, board-certified medical director?put technology at the center of their work to treat clients? skincare concerns with a variety of noninvasive procedures. Take one of their high-tech implements: a facial skin scanner. By using its black lights or filtered UV lights, technicians can amplify the visibility of skin issues that don?t normally reveal themselves under standard visible light: sun damage, blocked pores, or pigment disorders, to name three.
Along with their decidedly 21st-century way of detecting epidermal maladies, the staff can treat them with a long and varied slate of services. Microdermabrasions, chemical peels, and hydrafacials revitalize skin with little to no downtime for smooth, glowing complexions. Alternatively, several minimally invasive cosmetic surgeries are offered, such as facelifts. It?s a spa, though, after all, so the team can also simply help clients relax by rendering massage therapy, and it?s particularly aimed at mitigating pain from injuries.

Working in the medical field was a no-brainer for licensed dentist Dr. Cecilia M. Rey as she comes from a long line of medical professionals. Today, she’s carrying on the tradition at her own practice, where she and her team work tirelessly to safeguard the smiles of kids, teens, adults, and senior citizens using the latest advancements in general and cosmetic dentistry. Regular checkups and cavity fillings keep gums and teeth in tip-top shape, and bridges, bonding, and veneers ensure customers lead with a grin they feel confident enough to show. To keep patients comfortable and at ease during procedures, a pill form of anesthesia is provided, but the team can accommodate nervous cartoon characters who prefer the old-fashioned frying-pan-to-the-head technique.
