Medical director Dr. Albert l. Rodriguez comes from a long line of scientists and doctors: his grandfather was a general practitioner, his father an orthopedic surgeon, and his mother a college professor who taught physics and math. At Forever U, Dr. Rodriguez has been carrying on the family tradition for more than 20 years, endeavoring to reverse the biological processes that give rise to wrinkles, veins, and other signs of aging. His age-defying services go beyond basics—one treatment, profiled in Palm Beach Woman, involves harvesting a woman's own adult adipose tissue and platelet-rich plasma and reintroducing the substances into different areas of the body.
Dr. Rodriguez is known for staying on the cutting edge of his field, which often involves no cutting at all. Board-certified in three specialties including aesthetic medicine and anesthesiology, he’s also a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine with advanced training in sclerotherapy; laser, IPL, and radiofrequency systems; and, especially, noninvasive facial treatments. Alongside clinical nurse Mary Lou Welker Gordon, he and his staff create younger-looking skin with medical chemical peels, microdermabrasion, fillers such as Radiesse and Juvederm, brow-smoothers such as Botox and Dysport, and finger paints.
To help patients stay as well-informed as he is, Dr. Rodriguez maintains a YouTube channel discussing new breakthroughs in aesthetic medicine, such as Neograft hair transplants. Both his commitment to education and his pursuit of beauty continue outside the center’s walls—he frequently appears in print and on TV, and exhibits his oil paintings in galleries throughout the area.
