Timeless Creations's board certified nurse practitioners and physicians conduct clinical aesthetic treatments in a spa-like setting. That means the experience is light and relaxing, while the equipment is direct and focus-driven. They use Palomar laser technology to remove unwanted body hair, Botox and dermal fillers to pare down wrinkles and lines, and chemical peels to restore healthy colors and textures to the face. The physicians also utilize HCG weight-loss programs to help clients attain slimmer figures so they can slip into the same parasail harness they wore on their honeymoons.
Dr, Dwight C. Remolds’ resume is filled with numbers: he’s performed more than 80,000 cosmetic procedures, trained more than 700 physicians, and led workshops in eight different countries. All of these figures add up to signify a highly seasoned cosmetic professional who, along with his trained team, performs body-beautifying procedures that range from wrinkle-slaying injections to liposuction treatments.
As evidenced by his own gleaming smile, Dr. Turke knows a thing or two about oral maintenance. He doesn't keep his recipe for success a secret, though—he shares his expertise with his clients. In fact, one of the core tenets of his practice is education.
In addition to teaching his patients how to maintain optimum oral health on their own, he ushers them along with routine and restorative dental services that keep teeth healthy, aligned, and shimmering. To do this, he uses state-of-the-art equipment, including digital x-ray machines and diode lasers, and he stays abreast of the latest advancements and techniques in the field. His expertise doesn't stop at teeth, however. He's also certified to administer Botox and Juvéderm injections to help clients achieve smooth, wrinkle-free skin that complements their newly pristine teeth. At Dr. Turke's office, a high-definition TV and wireless headphones keep patients relaxed and occupied during appointments.
It's fitting that so many of the clients at White Orchid Spa are tourists—the 6,000-square-foot space resides in the AAA four-diamond Vero Beach Hotel—since a visit to the spa is a journey unto itself. After donning robes and sandals, visitors can select one of 12 therapeutic and medical massages, which incorporate seashells, warmed bamboo shoots, and ylang-ylang flower oil. Massages aren't the only service enhanced with natural touches: Aestheticians also use sulfate-free Éminence products and other organic ingredients in body treatments, including scrubs and wraps blended with Dead Sea mud and green-tea extract, 10 types of facial treatments, and mani-pedis that soften the skin with a black-sesame scrub. Guests can take advantage of a salon complete with bridal services and eyelash extensions as well as the facility's med-spa treatments—from dermal fillers that smooth or plump skin to VelaShape treatments that reduce the appearance of cellulite and bumps that might just be clinging koalas.
For years, Drs. Sharon Ross, John Burigo, and Kelly VanGilder have cared for patients at OB/GYN Specialists of the Palm Beaches. Beginning in 2007, the trio brought their extensive experience to Aesthetic Specialists of the Palm Beaches, where they enhance both female and male forms with a variety of surgical and noninvasive cosmetic procedures. Dr. Burigo focuses solely on fat-reducing liposculpture, which requires less downtime than traditional liposuction. Dr. VanGilder performs noninvasive aesthetic treatments, and Dr. Ross's work centers around anti-aging techniques and products such as cosmetic injectables, chemical peels, and fractional resurfacing procedures.
The doctors are joined by registered nurses and skincare specialists CJ Eaton and Jennifer Cramer, who analyze each client's skin to address specific concerns with customized treatments. They can exfoliate away blemishes with microscopic crystals during a microdermabrasion, or they can fill out upper eyelids or tiny fur coats with individually applied eyelash extensions.
Dr. David Rankin, the chief of plastic surgery at St. Mary's Medical Center, combines years of medical experience with finely honed aesthetic sensibilities. Deftly wielding the tools of his trade, from surgical procedures to noninvasive injections, he helps clients obtain the physical forms they desire. Dr. Rankin's compatriot, Dr. Jill Lezaic, offers up noninvasive laser treatments that resurface skin, remove tattoos, and make undesirably hairy areas as bald as the lies of people who say driver’s licenses are necessary. Aqua's opulent interior puts visitors at ease, with an elegant reception area that features shimmering purple lights on the front desk and miniature chandeliers, casting soft illumination and providing handholds for magically shrunken musketeers.
