Cosmetic procedures at the Miami Center for Dermatology take place under the watchful gaze of board-certified dermatologist Deborah Longwill and Lawrence Schiffman, who takes pride in youthifying patients without costing them undue downtime. Like ingesting bubble gum, infusing your skin with Botox takes about 10 minutes and produces results that last up to four months. Treated lines, wrinkles, crow's feet, and cow's knees are significantly lessened, and faces emerge looking freshly ironed. Mimicking technology originally developed for Saran Wrap, the Alma Accent laser employs radio frequency to melt away cellulite and tighten skin on large areas (front thigh, back thigh, and butt) and small areas (arms, love handles, chin/neck) in a procedure that's much less invasive than traditional liposuction.
Jessica Oviedo is a double threat—she's both a Brazilian waxing specialist and licensed medical esthetician. She uses this expertise, along with an arsenal of premium products, to help skin become both smooth to the touch and pleasing to the eye. She doesn't just perform treatments for the face, limbs, and extremities though. She also helms Brazilian waxing services, as well as luxurious vajacial treatments, in which she cleanses and moisturizes nether regions.
Though the words "waxing" and "relaxation" aren't often uttered in the same sentence, the place where Jennifer performs her services, ZenMe Massage & Spa, actively works to change that. The spa cultivates a serene state of mind with soothing earth-toned walls and comfy, overstuffed furniture. Hanging chandeliers and wood-framed mirrors add a chic flair to the zen-minded spot, which specializes in massages ranging from acupressure to reflexology.
The technicians at Personal Touch Body Waxing & Tanning get their clients' skin summer ready with gentle mineral waxes and spray tans. With each waxing treatment, the aestheticians use new spatulas and fresh mineral wax to insure cleanliness and safety. During spray tans, the technicians custom airbrush bodies for a natural, even look, using an FDA-approved formula.
With average temperatures in the '70s and '80s, it makes sense that Miami is full of body-baring outfits. All that skin is why people like the owners of Velour Med Spa were able to open a successful laser hair-removal business in 2005. With the hope of further beautifying bodies, they established Velour—a full med spa—in 2010.
Its certified medical aestheticians, who are supervised by a medical director, still perform the popular laser hair-removal treatments, but they also fade unwanted spider veins, smooth cellulite, and rely on intense pulsed light to refresh faces. In addition to beautifying clients, they relax with massages and mani-pedis, which take place in a pristine all-white room.
Universal Laser Center has been beaming cosmetic laser rays for more than a decade, devoting itself to a philosophy that welds health to the shimmering luster of beauty. Whether technicians are dissolving cellulite, toning complexions, or sending acne back in time, they pride themselves on using diverse technology "that improves and transforms lives." Spare decor marks the crisp, airy reception area, where patients wait to meet with professionals who leave clear complexions and sleek silhouettes in their wake.
The Neat Waxing Co. uproots bodily briar patches using European herbal waxing and depilation techniques. A gentle skin-spackling of talcum powder commences each treatment, readying clients for resident wax wizards’ deft wooden spatulas that gently displace excess fuzz without incurring irritation, root damage, or curses cast by vengeful members of extended follicular families. A Brazilian or bikini wax ably equips beachcombers with carefree summertime savvy ($22–$27), and a thorough leg waxing glams up gams from thigh to toe ($25–$43). Men looking to don backless business suits can pluck the shock from their shoulders ($10–$27), or exploit open collars more modishly when free of follicular frontispieces ($7–$17). The resulting smoothness may last up to four weeks, and ensuing waxes can eventually abate unwanted body hair to result in long-lasting softer surfaces.
