Slim Trim Spa supplies all-natural weight-loss supplements to clients and specializes in modern services tailored to a variety of wellness needs. Ultrasonic cavitation heats up microscopic air bubbles to break up fat cells in problem areas then safely and naturally metabolize them out of the body. A number of massage modalities, including sports, deep-tissue, and trigger-point therapy, can assist the detoxifying effects by stimulating circulation and energizing muscles.
At Lime Studio & Spa, certified aesthetician Andrea Rojas coddles smile mantels with pore-clearing facials customized to each client's needs. The Lime Face facial commences with a cleansing and exfoliation that scrubs away dead skin cells and reveals skin that looks as young as a newborn's first thoughts. Then, visages receive an extraction (if necessary) and an ampoule application followed by an ultrasound to enhance product penetration. Staffers add another level of luxury with an eye mask before applying a double-layered mask and hydration treatment to seal in moisture, rejuvenate the face, and ease anxieties on the day before yearbook picture day.
Cosmetic procedures at the Miami Center for Dermatology take place under the watchful gaze of board-certified dermatologist Deborah Longwill and Lawrence Schiffman, who takes pride in youthifying patients without costing them undue downtime. Like ingesting bubble gum, infusing your skin with Botox takes about 10 minutes and produces results that last up to four months. Treated lines, wrinkles, crow's feet, and cow's knees are significantly lessened, and faces emerge looking freshly ironed. Mimicking technology originally developed for Saran Wrap, the Alma Accent laser employs radio frequency to melt away cellulite and tighten skin on large areas (front thigh, back thigh, and butt) and small areas (arms, love handles, chin/neck) in a procedure that's much less invasive than traditional liposuction.
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.
Jim Pruchniewski peered down his leg at his blackened toes. He'd been rushed to the hospital after a blizzard waylaid him on a mountainside in Lake Placid. "You have third-degree frostbite," the doctor confirmed. "We'll have to amputate." Fortunately for Jim and his digits, the US Olympic ski team was training nearby. The team's podiatrist hurried to the hospital like a long-lost lover hurries to interrupt a wedding before the end of a movie. "Stop!" he might have shouted as the buzz saw probably descended toward the patient's toes. The hero, our Olympic podiatrist, examined the foot and concluded that the damage was superficial. The toes would recover. And they did. The episode moved Jim Pruchniewski, a former biology teacher, to earn his medical degree. Over the last 20 years, he's gained fourfold board certification in podiatric orthopedics, surgery, primary care, and the treatment of diabetic foot wounds. At North Lakeland Foot Clinic, he examines feet with the same attention that saved his toes decades ago. He and his staff do everything in their power to keep feet healthy and, in the case of diabetic patients, avert extreme measures like amputation.
Dr. Imaze Marian Davis started college at 16, med school at 19, and her career as a podiatrist at 22. Today, in addition to owning her own practice, she's a faculty member of Westchester General Hospital and an adjunct professor in Barry University's medical graduate school, plus Director of Wound Care at Northshore Hospital. Not yet satisfied with these professional accomplishments, Dr. Davis also plans to open a clinic in her hometown of Benin City, Nigeria. In the meantime, she's keeping feet healthy here in the States. Her foot and ankle treatments address and prevent symptoms of muscle-, bone-, and nail-related ailments. From ankle surgery to custom orthotics to laser fungus removal, Dr. Davis and her associate Dr. Amy Bodart work attentively with clients to keep them comfortable and confident below the knee.
