Dr. Richard S. Bragg believes that outward appearance impacts the way people feel on the inside. That’s why he built his practice with a passion for making people feel better about their appearance mixed right into the foundation. As director of Florida Vein Care and Cosmetic Center, Dr. Bragg follows this mission by treating patients with safe, effective, and advanced cosmetic treatments.
At two locations, Dr. Bragg and his staff utilize surgical and non-surgical techniques to perform procedures like repairing stretched and torn ear piercings, and eliminating red spots from the epidermis. His staff also nourishes skin with glycolic facials and nixes wrinkles with Botox Cosmetic and Juvederm.
The staffers at Laser Aesthetics & Wellness are very familiar with the transformative power of light. During vein treatments, they use these lasers to collapse spider veins on the feet and legs, which clients can then show off by wearing formal shorts to their wedding. They employ the same system to get rid of facial and body hair during hair-removal sessions and to smooth out rough texture and scars during skin-rejuvenation treatments.
At InfiniTrim, technicians slim physiques without surgery. instead, they employ the LipoTranz fat removal system, which draws on technologies from laser beams to radio frequencies. Ironically, though, the cutting edge technology actually works to mimic an age-old process: natural metabolism. The treatments break up fat non-invasively, then shift it into the lymphatic system, where the body can dispose of it naturally.
These signature contouring treatments are just one of the ways the team works to beautify physiques. Their InfiniLase laser hair removal treatments, for example, permanently minimize hair growth in areas such as the underarms, while services such as microdermabrasion, peels, and laser-based acne treatments help refine complexions.
The licensed aestheticians at Veranda Park Aesthetic remake faces like the Renaissance masters remade cathedral ceilings. After taking in a client's good foundations—bone structure, skin condition, and smiles too blindingly to be unleashed in close quarters—the team sets to work pampering away distracting problem areas with a host of professional strength body and skincare therapies. Aestheticians deliver medical-grade facials to excavate pores, buff away dry patches, and leave faces glowing in their natural splendor. For those small lines that pull around eyes and try to damp down the wattage on patients' smiles, technicians turn to beauty injections that smooth away distractions with the help of safe dermal fillers. Multi-purpose lasers can shut down unwanted hair follicles, delve into skin to spur more collagen production, or even take spider veins out of commission.
Island Glow looks more like an upscale day spa than a typical tanning salon. Ornate cabinetry, plush leather sofas, and boutique jewelry fill the spacious front waiting area. Upon arrival, a member of Island Glow's staff leads guests to one of the facility's private treatment rooms where clients choose from four different levels of tanning beds or opt for a customized, organic spray tan. They also offer a new, super express spray tanning solution that allows clients to shower in as little as one hour instead of the traditional 12-15 hours. Each member of the team is Smart Tan-certified, a distinction that means they've undergone a rigorous training program and can recite the alphabet backwards. They also help people look and feel their best by offering other treatments including teeth-whitening services, massages, and facials.
Each facial performed at Celeana's Medspa begins with a careful analysis of the skin and a consultation to discuss healthy skincare habits. It is only after this that the aesthetician cleanses and tones the complexion with a combination of products chosen specifically for the needs of the client in front of them. Similarly, the licensed massage therapist on staff tailors the pressure and focus of each bodywork session through verbal feedback from their client.
