With more than 25,000 laser treatments under its belt, the certified staff of Breeze Laser Center wields modern technology to soothe and improve skin. Omnilux treatments focus nonheating LED lights on acne-afflicted faces for 16–20 minutes per session to produce clearer skin with little discomfort. Like a timid sea monkey, fresh skin emerges gradually, typically after four sessions. Fight off hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, blackheads, or the advancing armies of face gophers with a Silk facial peel. The peel, lasting 30–45 minutes, exfoliates epidermises, then a topical serum soothes freshly-uncovered layers and eliminates the need for downtime. Prior to each treatment, Breeze's benevolent skin-sorcerers will meet with clients for a complimentary consultation, answering any questions they may have, and teaching soothing strokes that calm visages nervous about adopting a new look.
Under the steady guidance of medical director Dr. John van Wert, Cascades MedSpa carves a path toward beauty with the sharpest, most advanced techniques, earning it a feature in Central Florida Lifestyle magazine. Dr. van Wert and his team chisel bodies and smooth complexions with more than a dozen treatments designed to restore confidence to patients so that they can show off their swimsuit at the beach or the next board meeting. The med spa's services range from noninvasive microdermabrasion and massage therapy to LipoSelection treatments, which break up and remove excess fat from the love handles and thighs.
Dr. Dean L. Johnston, named one of the area's top plastic surgeons in 2010 by Orlando Magazine, and his team of skilled specialists revitalize visages through cooling HydraFacial technology suitable for all skin types. The Premier HydraFacial helps to remedy wrinkles, brown spots, and vestigial bunny ears by vacuuming pores and extracting impurities with an ultramodern HydraFacial MD device that uses a patented HydroPeel tip. Unlike microdermabrasion systems, the gadget's spiral design uses multiple abrasive edges to exfoliate the skin several times as it passes over faces, simultaneously bathing the epidermis in hydrating and moisturizing serums. Using the same face-saving technology, the glycolic HydraFacial infuses human frontispieces with glycolic acids that penetrate into the skin and stimulate cell regeneration by offering time and a half to collagen producers. HydraFacials take approximately 30 minutes, and for an additional fee, patients may upgrade their treatments with personalized serums.
After feeling the pain-relieving effects of acupuncture firsthand, Mehrafrouz “Ladan” R. Foradi resolved to study nutrition, acupuncture, and Oriental medicine, eventually putting her skills to work at her own acupuncture practice. Foradi consults with clients next to the earth-toned walls of her treatment rooms, explaining how acupuncture works to treat issues such as neck and back pain, headaches, inflammation, arthritis, and needle deficiency. Soft classical music puts patients at ease before Foradi carefully inserts individually wrapped, disposable needles into acupuncture points. Foradi also offers other treatments to complement the effects of acupuncture, such as cupping, Tuina, and homeopathic injections.
