Aromas MedSpa is a full-service wellness enterprise with noninvasive treatments that heal ailments and enhance beauty. Specializing in skincare, cosmetic professionals aim Candela and Cynosure lasers at body hair, permanently reducing unwanted tufts or mutton chops. The specialists complement cosmetic procedures for the body and face with health services that eliminate unsightly warts and funguses or promote sustainable weight loss.
Aromas MedSpa's spa services incorporate new, uncommon technologies. For instance, the infrared sauna and the DermaLife Spa Jet create a two-part program of multisensory, holistic healing based on the therapeutic properties of infrared heat. In the dry carbon sauna, warm infrared rays beam deep into the body to catalyze sweating, ease chronic aches, recharge the body's inner reading light, and melt tension in the limbs. Then, the 60-gallon DermaLife pod immerses guests in clouds of soothing steam heated by infrared energy. Infused with aromatic essential oils and antioxidants, the pod's enriched atmosphere awakens the senses and conditions the skin while four LED stations illuminate droplets of vapor with colorful light shows known to soothe the overactive minds of most disco dancers.
Angel Orozco is as well traveled as he is knowledgeable—not that the two qualities developed separately. The licensed massage therapist and board-certified holistic health counselor has learned ancient healing techniques from teachers in Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, and India. Along with his licensed staff, he incorporates those lessons into spa and wellness treatments at BodySense. The result is that the center offers an impressive range of massage styles—20 total in fact—from Thai and postpartum to a honey body massage that exfoliates skin with lemon and caraway-enriched honey.
The rest of BodySense's service menu is a hybrid of Western and Eastern approaches. Acupuncture sits side by side with a treatment that combines medical massage and electrotherapy. Gerard's organic skincare products power facial treatments such as the caviar and soy facials. To help clients control the most important factor influencing their health besides whether or not they're napping in a catapult with a rusty old safety, BodySense creates custom weight-loss programs, which provide participants with nutritional counseling, massages, body treatments, and exercise classes.
Stephen Smith, the literal wizard behind the figurative curtain at Planet Beach Contempo Spa, has developed a variety of efficient, self-guided treatments that beautify skin or relieve stress at the touch of a button. Patrons can pay an affordable monthly membership fee at four Miami-area locations to access the automated services, which include sunless spray tans, traditional or high-pressure UV tanning, and full-body hydration treatments that nourish skin and can extend the life of a tan. The Luminous facial device has been designed to fight signs of aging with light therapy, and several types of massage beds melt away stress.
Guests pay an additional fee only for the products that correspond to the services they want. A sauna-suit purchase is required for the infrared sauna, and teeth-whitening treatments require a mouth guard that can be used for games of full-contact horseshoes.
As a child, Beniley Llorens watched her parents work at their salon in Guadalajara, Mexico, learning secrets of the beauty industry firsthand. Her passion for aesthetics led her to training in places such as Italy, Spain, France, and Japan before she opened a day spa in Guadalajara and eventually relocated to Miami. Now she owns Beniley Wellness Center & Spa, which recently moved to a new location, where she and her team use European techniques to perform facials, microdermabrasion, radio-frequency treatments, PEMF (pulse electromagnetic field therapy), and specializing particularly in waxing.
Not only do Llorens and her personally trained staff members perform waxing services?including upward of 70 Brazilian waxes per week, but Llorens has also developed her own line of skincare and cosmetic products.
For more than 25 years, the technicians of Crown Medical have had one mission: to banish unsightly varicose and spider veins with sclerotherapy injections. A consultation kicks off initial visits as a trained tech utilizes a computerized evaluation to determine vein size, shape, and Myers-Briggs personality type. Clients will also undergo a skin-color and allergy test before a sclerosant solution is injected into the unwanted vessels, causing them to permanently break down and fade over time. While they have fine-tuned their technique for abolishing veins for decades, the team at Crown Medical continues to develop and share their wealth of sclerotherapy knowledge through medical journals and perpetual training.
