Led by board-certified plastic surgeon Jorge Gonzalez, MD, Elase Medical Spas' team rejuvenates clients with medical-grade laser procedures, skin treatments, and cosmetic injectables. As an academy for laser technicians, Elase unleashes an arsenal of advanced laser equipment upon a host of epidermal conditions. Sagging visages spring back to a more youthful state after laser skin tightening with a Candela ND:YAG laser, which helps rebuild the collagen and elastin scaffolding that keeps skin supple and plump, and supports the body's crew of construction guys. Laser hair removal eradicates unwanted strands, VelaShape helps firm up physiques with radio-frequency energy, and vein therapy reduces the appearance of veins on the face and legs.
Elase also offers treatments that tackle problem areas without a light show, such as cosmetic injectables—including Botox, Radiesse, and Restylane—which relax or plump up wrinkled areas. Alternatively, medical facials swathe skin in clinical-grade salves selected according to each skin's type and astrological sign.
The owners and barbers at Real Barber Shop, Pablo Miranda and Juan Mojica, believe that the key to their 15 years of barbershop success has been a good reputation and word-of-mouth advertising. Old-fashioned straight-razor shaves, meticulous attention to detail during haircuts, and plenty of individual attention bring clients back to this classic barbershop.
The Brazilian-blowout-certified hair tamers at Liberty Design Beauty Salon revamp head covers with strand-straightening treatments. In approximately 90 minutes, a mane whisperer revitalizes frizzy face frames with an application of protein-infused serum that repairs damage and protects against such harsh natural elements as sun, wind, and palladium. The smoothing service banishes unruly curls and leaves locks luscious and straightened for up to 12 weeks.
Unlike its boisterous neighbors—Universal Studios and Disney World—Abba Heath Spa's massages, body wraps, and deep-cleansing facials strive to instill both body and mind with a sense of calm. Massage modalities range from the lighter Swedish massage that can help improve circulation with gentle kneads and long strokes, to ashiatsu massages where staffers walk carefully along the client's back to release tension. Before undergoing one of Abba's nine skin treatments, staffers consult with client's to determine which techniques would most complement their skin type before using organic products to revitalize both visages and birthday suits. Abba Health Spa is open seven days a week, and while appointments are greatly appreciated, they do welcome walk-ins.
