At Med Spa UM, a team of laser technicians, carboxytherapy specialists, and estheticians help clients nourish their skin and fight the effects of aging with effective, high-tech procedures. Their facial treatments restore lost years without the need for surgery; injections of dermal fillers and Botox plump up sagging skin, and carboxy injections fight fine lines and wrinkles with tiny subdermal infusions of CO2. Customized facials and microderms revitalize faces' exteriors, sloughing off layers of dead cells to reveal supple stretches of skin underneath. Although faces are one of the spa's major concern, they're not the team's only area of expertise. They also coax stubborn fat deposits to shrink with advanced techniques such as the Full Contact laser, which emits low levels of infrared light, or ultrasonic lipo sessions.
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.
