“My practice is really centered on the individual,” Dr. Amaryllis Pascual told NBC 6 News about her self-named clinic, Pascual MD Med Spa. “What I like to do is set up an initial consultation where I meet with the patient and we go over what their desired results are. I then take a look at their lifestyle and the person as a whole, and we customize a treatment plan that’s going to fit that individual.”
Dr. Pascual and three other on-staff doctors—Dr. Vijay Sharma, Dr. Jeffrey LaGrasso, and Dr. Jorge Gaviria—follow this regimen for each treatment they provide, whether clients seek cosmetic surgery, medical weight-loss supervision, or classic skincare services. They also equip their office with delicate lasers capable of softening wrinkles, ousting unwanted hair, and drawing old-timey mustaches on hamburger buns.
At Center for Integrative Medicine, healers pay due attention to every treatment modality, from contemporary medicine to ancient Chinese medicine and acupuncture. The services reflect their broad spectrum of expertise, from specialty Chinese massage and ariculotherapy (full-body healing triggered in the external ear) to cold-laser therapy and injection therapy.
Licensed aesthetician Rose Levenda draws upon more than 30 years of combined local and overseas experience to enhance appearances and help clients stay abreast of current cosmetic trends. Focused on skin, she attacks uneven complexions and blemishes from all angles with a slew of anti-aging treatments, specialized peels, and deep-reaching exfoliation measures, including microdermabrasion. For bodies that can’t seem to shrink after exercise, dieting, and sleeping in sardine cans, nonsurgical liposuction and body contouring offer less invasive alternatives to traditional medical procedures.
Dr. DiGeronimo views himself as an artist, and his cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries as his works of art. He cut his teeth training under Dr. Ralph Millard—considered by many plastic surgeons to be the father of modern plastic surgery—and has perfected his craft over the course of more than 30 years and thousands of procedures. He and his staff practice their trade in two pristine operating rooms, performing procedures that span the whole body, from face lifts and Botox injections to breast augmentation and liposuction. He also stays abreast of current aesthetic technological advances, as evidenced by his noninvasive laser treatments that include skin resurfacing and Thermage, which—like crying at the sight of a clown—make clients appear younger.

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, 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.
