Under the direction of an MD, the team at West Miami Health Center erases the line between health and beauty. The on-staff physician conducts blood tests and checkups, while the team of aestheticians oversees the relaxation process with facials, scrubs, and peels. Injured elbows sigh with relief inside paraffin-wax baths or noninvasive laser therapy, and tense muscles drink in heat from smooth river rocks during hot-stone massages.
The waiting room at BOD Cosmetic Surgery conveys both sides of the med-spa equation at a glance: utterly pristine, nurse's-cap-white furniture, paired with a luxurious chandelier and a few touches of hot pink. It makes sense that this is a place people go when they want to get sleek, whether through cosmetic surgery, waxing, or noninvasive BOD Lipolaser slimming treatments, which help patients lose inches without having to give up whipped cream on their salads. Three plastic surgeons oversee the center.
Active Health and Fitness' five locations swarm with chiropractors, massage therapists, acupuncturists, and aesthetic specialists as they keep human chassis shiny and new with custom treatments. Weight-loss programs guide patients through the journey of pinching inches, and hair-removal therapy evicts unwanted strands after technicians have lengthy discussions with each follicle about the importance of being reliable contributors to society. Physicians stand by to supervise treatments such as the weight-loss program and noninvasive medical procedures.

Privacy takes priority at Adevé Spa Salon, which was founded by stylist Adys Duardo and aesthetician Evelyn Acosta. Individual bathrooms connect to each private treatment room, where luxurious relaxation and beautification proceed. Inventive pampering treatments include ofuro-hyrdotherapy, which uses a Japanese-style hot tub to sap away stress and remove toxins. Massage kneads out muscular tension, while facials and photorejuvenation render skin as radiant as the mythical firefly devouring the sun. The hair spa, meanwhile, keeps locks looking as resplendent as the rest of the body, making hair silky and smooth with conditioning sessions and keratin treatments.
The aestheticians at Khirei Med Spa rely on advanced technology to beautify the skin and contour the body. Lasers in the form of intense pulsed light zap unwanted hair, remove spider veins, or lighten dark spots in the skin caused by aging or sun damage. Radio frequency pairs up with noninvasive laser-light treatments to drain fat cells and reduce stretch marks. The treatments are preceded by a consultation, during which the team customizes a treatment plan suited to each client.
