Patricia Martorana’s wall doesn’t have enough space for all the framed certifications she could hang on it. The owner of Sun Central Skincare boasts dozens of them, each one proclaiming her an authority in one of more than 10 skincare product lines and a number of skin therapies. Instead of displaying proof her experience on the wall, the aesthetician reveals her knowledge through exactingly high standards, which are evident in the skincare products she chooses, such as the all-natural 100% Pure product line and Éminence Organic Skin Care—a completely organic line that uses no preservatives. Inside her studio, Patricia performs attentive facials, peels, and microdermabrasion treatments, all designed to diminish blemishes and recall the youthful glow that was stolen by a band of desperate fireflies. Body waxing and body wraps also leverage the staff's expertise to beautify the areas below the neckline.

Growing up as a child in Iran, it wasn't unusual for Happy Farshid to see Turkish baths known as hammams. But when he came to America, they, like people who actually liked soccer, became significantly harder to find, according to the Orlando Sentinel. So Farshid decided to open one at his own spa, Shala Salon & Day Spa.
Shala's traditional Turkish bath surrounds guests with blue mosaic tiles imported from Italy, Moorish arches, and a domed ceiling. Guests take in their opulent surroundings while basking in the hammam's relatively gentle steam and lying down on a heated tile slab in the center of the room, where they typically receive a thorough massage and an exfoliating body treatment.
These immersive escapes are only one of the many options available to Shala's patrons. Stylists are also on-hand to design flattering new haircuts and weave honey-colored highlights into tresses. And aestheticians perform everything from waxing and basic facials using Éminence Organic Skin Care products to skin-rejuvenating photofacials and cellulite-reducing Endermologie procedures.
When greeting new clients, the receptionists and medical staff at Victoria Med Spa can listen to concerns, analyze needs, and talk about the weather in Spanish, Russian, Portuguese, or Greek, as well as English. These same therapists then treat injuries or bolster general well-being through custom weight-loss plans and holistic treatments backed by medical-grade equipment. Medical staffers man FDA-approved Venus Freeze radio frequency to tighten skin and reduce the volume of fatty tissue, or perform teeth-whitening treatments to leave pearlies ready to gnaw through velvet ropes. Slow sighs drift from treatment rooms in which therapists gently knead muscles during deep-tissue massages.
As part of each service, mugs of hot herbal tea warm hands and unfurl delicate floral aromas. The staff also promote mental well-being by surrounding patients with sea-foam-green walls, eclectic artwork, and candles, and by handpicking each musical note as it emerges from the spa stereo.
Alpha Weight & Wellness physicians, assistants, and technicians incorporate medical-grade technology and aesthetic sensibilities into virtually every procedure they perform. Weight loss is a major goal for many of the center's clients, and the team accommodates these concerns with surgical treatments as well as noninvasive procedures. This range of options stems from the clinic’s arsenal of equipment, which can also target concerns on the skin’s surface. Crystal microdermabrasion smoothes texture, the Fotona Nd:YAG laser system eliminates unwanted stubble, and TriPollar technology employs radio frequencies to contour overall shape while transmitting baseball scores to the brain. Alpha Weight & Wellness Medical Clinic's board-certified medical director, Dr. F. V. Ello, also helps distinguish the medical center by designing and implementing a proprietary line of skincare products and procedural techniques.

Dr. Karlin and his team elicit these satisfied grins with a full menu of cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries, as well as slimming and rejuvenating spa treatments. He regularly attends conferences and all-surgeon hoedowns to stay abreast of developments in the field, such as laser technologies, anti-aging hormones, and less invasive liposuction. All his safe aesthetic procedures are done with the goal of helping clients look beautiful and feel confident.:m]]
