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.
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.

Anti-aging expert Dr. Cesar Velilla directs the Dreams & Beauty Medical Spa, a purveyor of state-of-the-art Evolution M.D. skincare products. The med spa smoothes the skin with services such as Botox and laser therapies that remove hair, blot out spider veins, or erase last week's grocery list. The day spa's professional aestheticians deliver firming facials, and stylists in the salon educate clients on maintaining healthy hair while they cut or color strands. Eye-catching red accents enliven the med spa's sleek black-and-white décor. Clients can relax in red velvet armchairs before entering treatment rooms, which boast backlit ledges filled with rocks that are ideal for testing the strength of a new updo.
Led by Eric Pantaleon, MD, the staff of Lineas Cosmetics eradicates clients' stress and promotes their well-being with advanced med-spa services. Dr. Segui uses lasers to render noninvasive alternatives to treatments such as liposuction, vein removal, and cellulite removal. When technology can't finish the job, he offers doctor-monitored weight-loss and diet programs and stocks supplements such as multivitamins, body lotions, and oral mesotherapy. The doctor can also eliminate wrinkles and fine lines with Botox and other dermal fillers, an easy alternative to the outmoded tactic of rubbing a pencil eraser on someone's face.
The doctors at Paraiso Cosmetic perform their treatments amid high-tech gear and sterilized surfaces that would not seem out of place at a hospital. They also recognize, though, that working toward aesthetic goals is best done in the calm of a spa. For that reason, the team pairs massages and facials with medical treatments including rhinoplasty and Juvéderm applications. Each of the doctors has a distinct specialty, allowing them to flawlessly complete surgeries or make an empty lab coat really look like it is dancing. Potential patients discuss their goals during a complimentary consultation, at which point the procedure and its costs are explicitly detailed.
