Treat the person, not the symptoms. That is the philosophy board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. H. Michael Bass has followed during a medical career that’s stretched across more than a thousand cosmetic surgeries. It’s also what guides him in his work as medical director of Danik MedSpa. Though the advanced spa center offers a range of surgical treatments, including rhinoplasty and breast augmentation, its menu is also filled with a variety of nonsurgical aesthetic services that focus on body sculpting, hair removal, anti-aging, and weight loss. Their unique body contouring treatments utilizes 16 similar but unique techniques, with the variations in the methods causing "muscle confusion" that can be especially effective in toning and expelling extra weight from the body, particularly in stubborn areas. During facials and chemical peels, the center's aestheticians restore firmness, clear away blemishes, and nourish careworn skin with products from the experts at SkinCeuticals, SkinMedica, Obagi, and Abella. When not slimming waistlines with weekly HCG injections, they also turn to the latest laser systems to carefully remove unwanted hair, veins, and tattoos.
Formerly a med spa, Soluna MD shifted gears in 2008 to focus more on the “med” aspect of the med spa, eschewing treatments whose job was only to pamper in favor of treatments that produced visible results, such as sclerotherapy, Botox, IPL facials, and chemical peels. But instead of letting its new medical services turn the office into a cold, clinical place, Soluna MD retained much of its med-spa comforts and ambiance. Patients relax atop padded massage beds during such treatments as SolunaSculpt SmartLipo Ultra, which permanently removes fat cells with a combination of ultrasound waves, lasers, and tiny incisions.
Before any treatment, patients can grab complimentary coffee and the occasional cake and cookies. They can also take advantage of consultations with cosmetic surgeon John W. Chang to learn more about Soluna MD's services or to discuss the advantages of adding a third ear to the elbow.
Lourdes Cano, D.M.D., worked in a prestigious Cuban polyclinic before immigrating to the United States to found Cano Medical Dental, a clinic that houses a team of doctors, dentists, optometrists, and chiropractors under one roof. The assorted physicians accept most major insurance plans for services ranging from diabetes treatment to biopsies to cosmetic dentistry. Cano Medical Dental treats patients six days a week and clients should call ahead to book appointments, as they do when making dinner reservations at fancy restaurants or their grandma’s tiny kitchen table.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Andres Patron, the staff at Patron Medical harnesses the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water-slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time.
