At Apex South Florida, Dr. W. Steve Haston and his crew of dedicated estheticians help turn back the clock on aging, using the industry's top technological advancements to restore youthful radiance. The experienced professionals diminish wrinkles with Botox injections and fractionated CO2 resurfacing which revitalizes the skin by stimulating production of face-firming collagen. To unearth fresher, younger looking skin, they rely on peels and microdermabrasion treatments that slough away old cells and accumulated dirt. They also embrace laser technology to zap away unwanted fuzz, vanish spider veins, and remove embarrassing "Dukakis '88" tattoos.
If it exists above the neckline, Dr. Todd Kupferman can tell you everything about it. As a board-certified physician in otolarygnology, the doctor has dedicated more than 10 years of his life to helping patients find relief from disorders affecting the ears, nose, sinuses, throat, and face. His training and experience give him the inside scoop on treating everything from allergies to infections, and informs his work in plastic and reconstructive surgery for the face.
This dedication to aesthetics is apparent in his practice's use of nonsurgical cosmetic technologies to treat a variety of skincare conditions. This noninvasive, state-of-the-art technology includes diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands, laser systems to remove unwanted stubble, acne-clearing IPL machines, and skin-tightening radio frequency technology. With his combination of medical expertise and cosmetic experience, Dr. Kupferman is able to keep countenances looking as youthful as the face of Peter Pan that is sculpted on the back of Mount Rushmore.
When not tending to patients with misaligned spines and muscle pains, chiropractor Dr. Roger Blinder can be found overseeing the practice’s laser center. Here, technicians remove unwanted body hair via advanced laser technology that’s designed to permanently destroy follicles at the root, a more effective removal process than staring at the hair until it falls out.
Headed by the trilingual Dr. Richard Silva, Silva Med Centre acts as both a family-oriented primary-care facility and a med spa. Patients can undergo treatment for chronic conditions, mental health issues, nutrition, and reproductive problems, or opt for cosmetic services that tackle acne, sun damage, and body shaping.
At Tribeca Medaesthetics, Dr. Jason A. Shapiro beautifies façades in a state-of-the-art cosmetic surgical center decked out with colorful artwork and cozy seating with relaxing lounge music. Cosmetic surgeries, such as face-lifts, breast augmentation and reduction, and liposuction—as well as Botox, Juvederm, and other injectables—help Dr. Shapiro contour patients’ curves and overall appearance to desired specifications. The board certified plastic surgeons also aim luminescent beams from a trio of cosmetic lasers to help resurface skin, burn fat, and break down any unwanted tattoos or long-division problem. Tribeca Medaesthetics also supervises weight-loss programs and nonsurgical aesthetic services such as facials, chemical peels, and microdermabrasions.
South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery's board-certified surgeons harness the latest laser technology, including Smartlipo—a laser fat-reduction treatment that helps sculpt healthy, active bodies beset by lingering paunch. The all-inclusive package includes Smartlipo treatment on a choice of a small area, all pre- and post-op procedures, surgeon and operation-facility fees, any necessary recovery garments, and prescription laughter to aid recovery (a $3,500 value). Smartlipo enhances body contours less invasively and can result in faster recovery than traditional liposuction, and requires only general anesthetic to prep for a series of small, precise incisions, although local anesthetic may be used in addition if needed. In about 90 minutes per treatment area, a laser does its best Death Star impression on fat cells as a tiny tube gently sweeps up the debris. Simultaneously, the laser coagulates blood vessels to minimize bruising and swelling, and it may also stimulate collagen growth and result in a firmer, more toned appearance. Many patients resume normal daily activities such as washing the mail within a day, though strenuous physical activity should be avoided for up to 10 days. Most patients see results immediately and make complete recovery within a month.
