Lasertique Spa's services go beyond the high-tech. Staff also relax and beautify their clients with old-fashioned spa treatments such as massages and rejuvenating milk facial peels. Educated as a surgeon and friend of medically trained robots, founder Dr. Robert Santa-Cruz heads a team of skincare specialists to treat a wide range of skin disorders and everyday complaints. For instance, photorejuvenation can counter uneven pigmentation and shrink oversized pores, and the spa's hair-removal technologies are designed to be quick and nearly painless.
As part of a larger medical center overseen by a licensed physician, Lasertique Spa boasts an experienced and welcoming staff. Treatments for men and women smooth and refine skin with noninvasive technologies such as lasers and tiny zambonis.
After a complimentary hair and scalp analysis that examines pates at the microscopic level, certified technicians consider a trio of tress-fortifying techniques suitable for both men and women. In-office laser therapy and take-home LED combs from brands such as Virtual Reality and Virtuesse are each designed to stimulate growth, while MicroLace replacement seamlessly bonds real hair to the scalp. All three options result in hair that can be washed, tugged, and subjected to the active lifestyle favored by rugby-playing Rapunzels. Those looking to shine up existing strands receive smoothing keratin treatments, and hair extensions and natural wigs lengthen locks.
Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
Drawing on training in ophthalmology, Dr. Joseph Selem specializes in surgeries that restore aesthetics and function to eyes and their surrounding skin. On the cosmetic side, his quick blepharoplasty surgeries reduce droops on upper and lower eyelids, and the restorative reach of his deftly wielded scalpel extends to sagging cheeks and chins. Capable of repairing more than just looks, Dr. Selem also offers medical treatments as part of his surgical repertoire. His careful eye exams can pinpoint excisable or otherwise treatable causes of vision loss, such as cataracts, glaucoma, or wearing sunglasses inside.
Medical director Enrique Monasterio leads the professional technicians and aestheticians of Medspa Miami on their mission to bolster patients' outer beauty with medically centered spa treatments. Dr. Monasterio's career began in the lands of Spain, France, and the United States, where he learned European and American medical aesthetic techniques and that the red in all three countries' flags represents kidney beans. After that, he focused on private practice for 20 years and now lends his expertise in Botox, sclerotherapy, and mesotherapy to the Medspa Miami staff, ensuring that each procedure adheres to strict standards and patient comfort.
