The trained technicians at Ana Camargo Skin & Day Spa enhance arm aesthetics with skin-tightening treatments. Wielding TriPollar equipment, which delivers radio-frequency energy deep into the hypodermis, the aestheticians target superficial and deep fat layers to shrink cellulite and increase collagen regeneration for arms that look younger and tighter while waving or opening pickle jars. The TriPollar units heat up the body’s accumulated fat deposits, accelerating metabolism and forcing the cells to release fatty acids for disposal by the circulatory and lymphatic systems. The unit's three electrodes, which limit the fat-blasting force to the treatment area alone, allow for a noninvasive and nearly painless treatment, unlike earlier slimming treatments, which caused the current supermodel-overpopulation crisis. Although results may differ, many may see tighter arms in as little as one treatment.
When she was young, Michelle's mother taught her that pursuing dreams is the only way to find true happiness. That’s why her mother moved the family from Puerto Rico to Florida, and why today, after a detour through medical school, she runs her own day spa. Among the salon’s scents of lavender and candles, she and her staff give clients individual attention during L’Oréal scalp-renewal treatments, all-over blonding processes, and Brazilian straightening treatments. They also accommodate guests seeking complete makeovers with makeup applications, facial waxing, and lash extensions.
Victoria Ruben believes beauty shouldn’t be temporary. After founding her permanent-makeup business 20 years ago in Paris, she decided to further her aesthetic mission by opening a cosmetology and beauty school to share her refined technique with others. Today, Victoria combines her expertise with the latest tattooing equipment to fine-tune faces in her Florida studio. Her precise yet painterly touches of color can simulate all the hallmarks of a professional makeup application, from defining brows to subtly shading lips to drawing distinguished monocles.
Nail services take the spotlight at Aurora Nail Spa where aestheticians wrap hands in warm towels, massage arms and feet, and polish nails with a kaleidoscope of colors.

The nail technicians at Monaco Nails & Spa keep hands and feet looking vibrant with a range of lavish nail services. Manicures and pedicures include not just a trim and a coat of polish, but a massage, conditioning, and hot towels to pamper the skin as well as the nails. Other services include facials, waxing, and acrylic-nail enhancements.
Upon entering Robar Beauty Salon & Spa, a visitor might first notice the recently remodeled interior, splashes of canary yellow or vibrant fuchsia, or the smell of organic hair products wafting through the air. But owner William Robar—an industry veteran of almost 40 years—remembers his salad days in less prosperous locations. His first salon "was so busy I didn't know where to put the people!" he laughs, recalling its cramped layout. His clientele ranged from street criminals to drug dealers. "In those days it was wild. Every walk of life came into my salon."
Now a sought-after celebrity stylist, William has clipped and styled famous hair for Frank Sinatra, Barbara Walters, and President Bill Clinton, who needed a trim before delivering a presidential speech. Inside his upscale salon, William and his team of certified stylists use their fashion instincts and mastery of the sibilant scissor language to team up with shears and craft elegant coifs for men, women, and children.
