Treat the person, not the symptoms. That is the philosophy board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. H. Michael Bass has followed during a medical career that’s stretched across more than a thousand cosmetic surgeries. It’s also what guides him in his work as medical director of Danik MedSpa. Though the advanced spa center offers a range of surgical treatments, including rhinoplasty and breast augmentation, its menu is also filled with a variety of nonsurgical aesthetic services that focus on body sculpting, hair removal, anti-aging, and weight loss. During facials and chemical peels, the center's aestheticians restore firmness, clear away blemishes, and nourish careworn skin with products from the experts at SkinCeuticals, SkinMedica, Obagi, and Abella. When not slimming waistlines with weekly HCG injections, they also turn to the latest laser systems to carefully remove unwanted hair, veins, and tattoos.
“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.
Doctor of Chiropractic Robert Kustin gets to the bottom of each patient's ailments with a customized multistep regimen. He begins by employing thorough exams, postural screenings, and x-rays to track down the source of aches and pains. Next, he develops a treatment plan of chiropractic adjustments and rehabilitative exercises. Active forms of physical therapy—such as strength training may bolster these plans to bring patients long-term relief.
Dr. Kustin extends his expertise outside the office as a public speaker on wellness concerns. He also serves as the official team chiropractor for the Everglades High School athletic department, as well as the sponsor for the annual Community Health and Wellness Day.
Massage World Spa is dedicated to providing spa services that care for the body and calm the mind. Rejuvenate a disheveled dermis with the 60-minute deluxe facial, which includes a complete skin analysis, an exfoliation treatment, extractions, a pore-cleansing mask and moisturizer, and a soothing shoulder and neck massage. Customers without faces can opt to experience one of three massages—the hot-stone treatment, which eases tension with cold or heated river stones thoroughly slathered with oil; the deep-tissue massage, which frees lower-level muscles and tissues with stress-releasing squeezes; or the Swedish massage, a classic procedure that uses five trademark stroke styles and a smidgen of snow from the Secret Alps. Round out your facial or massage with a 15-minute session in the spa's six-person Jacuzzi tub.
The expert laser technicians at Pines Total Health Center evict unwelcome body fur with the help of noninvasive laser light pulses. Hair-removal treatments begin with an assessment, during which a depilation specialist determines which level of laser light to use based on the client's chosen target areas, the skin's condition, and its taste in pop music. Fuzz fighters looking to deforest small areas, such as upper lips (a $675 value), chins (a $799 value), or underarms (a $900 value), relax as concentrated light beams ease across target areas, safely penetrating skin to target strands at the root.
Blue Zone Massage Center's professional therapists assuage deep aches and chronic tension during soul- and sinew-soothing massage services. During the 60-minute custom-fit massage, expert muscle mollifiers customize tactics of gliding strokes and robust kneads to each client’s individual desires and corporeal cues. Therapists train their healing hands on sore legs for an intense one-hour kneading and oscillate between light, medium, and deep pressure, or attempt to rid necks and backs of deep-set pain pockets developed from giving piggyback rides to the Statue of Liberty. Customers can sink into the lobby’s plush couches and earthy tones before surrendering meddlesome tendons in private treatment rooms illumined by flickering candles and vibrant orange walls.
