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.
Dr. Espaillat, who has performed thousands of ocular surgeries and laser treatments, brings his eyeful of expertise to a practice that focuses on custom LASIK and cosmetic laser treatments. His custom approach to LASIK incorporates highly detailed 3-D maps of each eye, drawn by child psychics, which affords him greater precision and a higher rate of success. Lasers find their way into a variety of his other services, such as blepharoplasty, which lifts eyelids for a more youthful appearance.
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.
Sagging skin, wrinkles, and stretch marks don't fare well against the Dermapen device's collagen-stimulating needles. Few know that better than the staff at The Nova Cosmetic and Rehabilitation Center. They specialize in the treatment, a feat that normally requires removing the wrinkles from a shar-pei. To complement the Dermapen's youthful results, they also schedule med-spa services such as lipotropic injections, prp plasma, and permanent-makeup sessions.

When husband-and-wife team Ernesto and Julie set out on their own in 2007, they were gambling on the fact that they could turn a fragile dream into a full business. Their initial lone employee has been replaced by seven in just one year, and the crew bustle through a salon that has the gleaming white expanses of a medical facility, but without the egocentric skeleton models. Patrons, who receive reminder text messages or emails before each appointment, arrive ready to work towards aesthetic goals with products from Obagi, Juv?derm, and Botox and a range of facial services. As massage services lure forth slow exhalations, the staff herald the arrival of new guests with cups of tea.
