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.

Performing around 3,000 treatments every year, South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery aims to mend bodily botherations with noninvasive- and surgical-treatment options. Supported by a staff of doctors, nurse practitioners, and aestheticians, the center employs two plastic surgeons, each with roughly 30 years of experience. Before performing any surgery, these doctors meet with patients to discuss their expectations for the procedure as well as their medical history. For its noninvasive med-spa services, the aestheticians use medical-grade products or injectable dermal fillers to even out clients' skin tone. Additionally, the center features four different cosmetic laser systems, which can help to minimize the appearance of stubble, acne scars, spider veins, cellulite, or especially stubborn temporary tattoos
Led by Dr. Stephen Cosentino and his wife Lorena, an aesthetician and laser specialist, the medically supervised team at VIP Aesthetics performs minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in a facility that is both a functioning med spa and an education center. Dr. Cosentino partners with Empire Medical Training and often allows other physicians to observe him as he performs certain treatments. These can include tumescent liposuction or VelaShape sessions, which contour bodies, sclerotherapy injections, which battle visible veins, or photofacials and chemical peels, which soften signs of aging such as sun damage, fine lines, and “I Heart Grover Cleveland” tattoos.
Dr. Rodger Stratt, BodyCare's founder and medical director, supervises every single one of the clinic's procedures—which included more than 500 body contouring treatments last year. After spending 10 years as an ER physician, Dr. Stratt changed his career path and now specializes in minimally invasive alternatives to liposuction, such as Smartlipo and Liposculpture. Requiring only local anesthetic, they remove fat from specific areas, shaping silhouettes more effectively than diets or an hourglass costume. To complement the localized treatments, the clinic offers other beauty services, from chemical peels to laser hair reduction.
Nu Yu Anti Aging Day Spa harnesses the tranquility of its environment in relaxing spa treatments delivered under the guidance of Doctor of Chiropractic Roger Verno.

Other services include facial treatments that use such elements as papaya enzyme, algae, and caviar to cleanse or hydrate the skin and make one yummy sandwich. Massages, spray tans, and body wraps tend to interiors and exteriors from the neck down.
