Marie Theresa Davis wears a number of hats in the beauty industry. She is a licensed aesthetician, massage therapist, nail technician, and certified personal fitness trainer. The well-rounded owner of House of Chi Spa uses all of her expertise during a variety of services, such as reiki treatments, acne-clearing facials, gel manicures, spray-tanning sessions, and weight-loss programs. She also eases sunburned skin with body wraps and applies permanent makeup to clients' faces.
As a child, Beniley Llorens watched her parents work at their salon in Guadalajara, Mexico, learning secrets of the beauty industry firsthand. Her passion for aesthetics led her to training in places such as Italy, Spain, France, and Japan before she opened a day spa in Guadalajara and eventually relocated to Miami. Now she owns Beniley Wellness Center & Spa, which recently moved to a new location, where she and her team use European techniques to perform facials, microdermabrasion, radio-frequency treatments, PEMF (pulse electromagnetic field therapy), and specializing particularly in waxing.
Not only do Llorens and her personally trained staff members perform waxing services—including upward of 70 Brazilian waxes per week, but Llorens has also developed her own line of skincare and cosmetic products.
A highly experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon, Andrew P. Amunategui, MD performs body-rejuvenating surgeries to uplift clients' spirits. Reverse the effects of time and warlock aging curses with a face-lifting Botox treatment, an injection that reduces or removes the appearance of facial wrinkles, worry lines, crow's-feet, and raccoon graffiti. Injected just under the skin, 22 units of Botox is enough to revitalize the forehead and crow's-feet areas. Treatment effects may last up to six months, allowing patients to look their best for an extended cruise or a standard dinosaur island safari. Similar to Botox, Dysport produces similar results for patients 65 and younger, and can be repeated every three months. The 44 units included in this deal should cover a forehead-and-eye-area boost. Groupon customers can also participate in a complimentary cosmetic consultation by asking for an appointment during scheduling.
Rejuvenate Doctor's board-certified physicians help individuals not only treat the signs of aging but also prevent and even reverse them by focusing specifically on hormonal health. Following the idea that "we age because hormones decline," founder and medical director Dr. Tina Miranda and her med-spa staff strive to tailor anti-aging treatment plans that will stop that decline faster than you can say, "Stop declining, you stupid jerks!" The team uses complimentary consultations to devise a plan that may combine hormone-replacement therapy with nutrition counseling, exercise, and sleep techniques. As part of its restorative treatments, the team also works to reverse aging on the outside to help patients both feel and look younger. The staffers use cosmetic treatments such as Botox, Restylane, laser skin peels, and time machines to imbue even the most timeworn and wrinkle-riddled hides with youthful radiance.
The color scheme inside Seven Seas Spa & Salon transitions from chartreuse to cool blues, as if narrating, in color, the space's shift from the liveliness of the friendly stylists on the hair-salon floor to the relaxation of the soothing spa services. Using all-natural Aveda products, the hair designers snip away and demonstrate the skills they've learned in the educational workshops they attend regularly to keep abreast of the latest cut, color, and styling trends. Equally savvy spa technicians work back in the spa space, lit by royal-blue bulbs and accented by cascading light fixtures and wavy white walls. Inside private treatment rooms, gentle facials and massages immerse clients in soothing scents and sensations as effectively as a jacuzzi whose water has been replaced with aromatherapy oil.
Upon arrival at Facial Spa and Body, stress immediately begins to melt away when a cup of tea or coffee is placed in your hands and you gaze at the robin's-egg-blue walls while waiting for facials, body wraps, and cellulite treatments. The aesthetician then leads you into a private room stocked with products from top skincare brands such as SkinCeuticals, Obagi, and La Roche-Posay. In addition to these brands, Facial Spa and Body also sells Colombian Fajas Salome shaping girdles, which contour waistlines, improve posture, and protect midsections from sucker punches.
