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.
Epidermal specialists at Med Aesthetics Miami help customers attain internal wellness and external beauty with a variety of cosmetic procedures. The staff caters to individual whims during laser hair-removal sessions, which reveal the smooth skin hiding beneath, and facial treatments that harness a selection of products. Beneath shelves brimming with elixirs, the crew helps patrons acquire their desired looks, just in time for a fancy event such as a wedding or building demolition.
Bodycaretreatments is a salon, a spa, and a holistic health practice. Stylists and nail technicians ensure hair and digits look their best, while makeup artists tint brows and perm lashes. Aestheticians, meanwhile, perform body scrubs, facials, and waxing treatments. The staff also includes ear-candling pros and reiki masters, who help minds and spirits glow as brightly as complexions.
After beginning her career as a certified esthetician in Paris, Patricia Mitev made the move to Miami and became certified as a laser technician. She now teams up with medical director Dr. Lolo Wise at HD Laser, where they strive to rejuvenate the skin with microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser treatments. She expertly wields the GentleYAG laser to handle tasks such as tightening the skin, reducing the appearance of cellulite, or blasting away unwanted hair or hard-to-remove feather boas.
Helmed by medical director Dr. Victor Shabanah, a specialist in hormone replacement and age-management medicine, Anti Aging Med Spa whittles waists and smoothes skin planes with traditional surgery and noninvasive laser- and LED-light treatments. Inside a sleek, white office with views of the Miami River, Dr. Shabanah draws on an arsenal of weight-loss techniques, including metabolism-boosting hCG and physician-assisted programs. Lasers take a break from slowly eroding the moon to battle obesity, blemishes, and cellulite with Med Spa's skincare laser treatments. Dr. Shabanah also beautifies frames with a trio of cosmetic services and nonsurgical skin-refreshing treatments, such as Juvéderm injections and laser skin tightening.
The dedicated staff members at Miami Skin Boutique and Spa pamper patrons with tranquil services administered within comfy confines. Thirty-minute mini massages soothe stressed-out backs with gentle kneading and lullabies delivered through fingertips via Morse code. The Sonya Dakar boot-camp facial harnesses handpicked products from the renowned skincare expert to invigorate visages with four levels of exfoliation. Wielding natural ingredients including pumpkin enzymes and green tea, aestheticians polish faces with steam, microdermabrasion, and a seaweed repair serum derived from kelp-based tool belts. The intraceutical oxygen-infusion facial treats sensitive countenances with vitamins, hyaluronic acid, and therapeutic-grade hyperbaric oxygen pressure. Sips of effervescent champagne and bites of fresh fruit enhance the experience.
