Dr. Mitchell Levy, a native New Yorker, chose to travel to Italy in order to attend The Medical University of Bologna, a school steeped in 900 years' worth of wisdom. After graduating in 1971, Dr. Levy returned to the United States, honing his skills during his residency and internship at Long Island Jewish Medical Center. He eventually entered private practice, and it was there that he found a specific cause: breast cancer. Dr. Levy even helped in clinical studies for a new treatment device, the PEM Flex, which can examine cancer at the molecular level. He continues to help patients battle the disease at his current practice in Plantation. Although the fight against breast cancer remains his focus, Dr. Levy also administers cosmetic treatments such as Botox, fillers, and body shaping through cryolipolysis.
"When trust and skill work together," opines Dr. Tory Lindh, "we can expect a masterpiece." For well over a decade, Dr. Lindh and his staff have worked to broaden their cosmetic and restorative skills while setting patients at ease in a relaxed office setting. They employ advanced technology to make dental procedures more precise and comfortable. A delivery system called The Wand allows the team to administer anesthesia painlessly. Dr. Lindh is also a member of the International Academy of Facial Aesthetics, and his in-depth study of facial muscles enhances modern cosmetic services such as Invisalign, Botox, and Zoom! teeth whitening that allow grins and faces to benefit from the science of beauty.
It's hard to get much more relaxing than a spa set on a picturesque golf resort. For all they have going for them, however, the team at Ousia Day Spa still tries to exceed expectations. Their signature facials soothe and hydrate skin affected by acne and fine lines, while their relaxation and deep-tissue massages alleviate tension in overworked muscles. Impressively, the spa's hair-removal treatments depend on the same hot wax used to groom the golf course's pristine greens.
At Advanced Dentistry of Plantation, father-and-son duo Marc and Eli Schwartz pair extensive medical training with an artistic touch to polish and align smiles. The dental team's operating motto—“We create beautiful smiles”—finds its way into nearly all of their general, cosmetic, and restorative treatments. During comprehensive exams, the doctors Schwartz inspect mouths for signs of tooth decay and gum disease before leaning in to listen for the telltale trills of swallowed harmonicas. A digital x-ray machine peers beneath the gumline to find hidden cavities, and a DiagnoDent laser pen helps the dentists locate other minor issues before they become major problems.
Cosmetic enhancements—from thin, custom-made veneers to a full-mouth rejuvenation—fill the gaps in missing, chipped, or crooked teeth. The Zoom whitening system's peroxide-based gel imbues teeth with a stainless glow, and Invisalign braces straighten smiles without temporarily sacrificing their attractiveness.
When she was still a student at Nova Southeastern University, Dr. Uttma Dham, DMD lent her skills to sealant programs for children and Special Olympics participants before earning the Dean's Academic Achievement Award and graduating with honors. She's applied this same dedication to her practice at US Westside Dental Center, where she and her staff offer up oral health services including crowns, root canals, teeth whitening, and mercury- and sugar-free cosmetic fillings. She also performs minimally invasive beauty treatments such as Botox, Juvederm, and Restylane injections, which can temporarily smooth out wrinkles caused by aging, sun exposure, or a rigorous winking tournament.
Total Life Medical Center, run by board-certified doctors, combats the effects of time with a variety of age-reversal services. Botox and facial-filler injections help to reverse wrinkles, and bioidentical hormone therapy infuses waning body chemicals with natural replacement hormones to strengthen the immune system, improve skin tone, and make patients feel more energized than a toddler on a sugar high. Radio-frequency sculpting can both contour bodies and level wrinkles with low-frequency ultrasound technology that disrupts fat cells and stimulates collagen. Those unsure of which anti-aging scientific procedure to undertake can sit down for a chat with the center's knowledgeable staff, who happily walk patients through the treatment process, offer post-session advice and knock-knock jokes, and address any side-effect concerns.
