At Neo Laser Medical Spa, two physicians, a registered nurse, and a licensed aesthetician use the latest technology to beautify skin. Their multiple laser systems form a cosmic tag-team that can rejuvenate bodies from head to toe. A fractional CO2 laser dramatically reduces pigmentation problems and other signs of aging, a Fraxel laser reduces wrinkles with minimal downtime, and a CoolTouch laser gently diminishes acne and acne scarring. The team also employs lasers to eradicate spider veins and unwanted hair and performs laser-assisted SmartLipo procedures that are less invasive than traditional liposuction.
But lasers aren't the only tools in Neo Laser's anti-aging kit. Clinical staffers combat wrinkles with Botox and dermal fillers, and customize facials or medical peels with petrochemical- and paraben-free Image Skincare products. The medical spa's complimentary consultations include a skin analysis with a detailed written report and photos, as well as 30 minutes with an aesthetician to discuss the best way to remove a mole or a mustache drawn on in permanent marker.
Dentistry is a true family business for the professionals at Ocean Breeze Dental. Dr. Mary Kalimnios first opened her practice in 2000 in Melbourne, but soon expanded to a larger office in Rockledge, where she welcomed her daughter, Dr. Barbara Wetmore, and son-in-law, Dr. Jason Wetmore. The cavity-busting trio also gets help from Dr. Kalimnios’ husband, Dino, who works as the team’s master denture technician, the couple’s son, John, who crafts the practice’s crowns and ceramic restorations, and the advanced, crown-fitting CEREC 3D inLab CAD/CAM system, which was found in a basket on the family’s doorstep. When not working to brighten and strengthen smiles of all ages, Dr. Kalimnios and her brood strengthen their skills by traveling to national and international conferences to stay abreast of the latest dental-care advancements. Dr. Barbara Wetmore also holds certification as a Botox and Dermafil professional, which she uses to tend to creased foreheads, furrowed brows, and unusually wrinkled teeth.
At jon-michele's Massage Therapy, candlelight illuminates calming yellow and cocoa tones as therapists John Kihm and Michelle Johnson deploy an array of massages. Both kneading experts graduated from Space Coast Health Institute, and John went on to complete an internship with the Washington Nationals. The therapists specialize in the injury-assuaging strokes of sports massage, but also employ modalities such as Swedish massage to melt muscle tension more quickly than a radiator melts Legos. Deep-tissue massages delve into tension, hot stones warm targeted points for intense unwinding, and couples and pregnancy massage tend to tense twosomes.
Dr. Roger Bassin doesn't tell new patients why he should be their cosmetic surgeon. Instead, he puts them in contact with past patients to help them learn about the experience and life-changing results from people who have been through it themselves.
At Dr. Bassin's side is a supporting staff that performs aesthetic and cosmetic nonsurgical procedures such as Botox and vein removal. Meanwhile, the center's aesthetician Marsha Ostrander reenlivens faces with 15 years' experience performing facials, masks, waxing, and more, and a kissing booth manned by an electric eel.
A youngster furrows his brow, concentrating on each brush stroke as he paints a piggy bank. Good friends fuse glass pieces into a serving bowl for a soon-to-be-wed pal or string disparate beads together to create an eclectic necklace. At ClayZ Arts, guests are free to pursue their artistic ambitions as they paint bisque pieces, design jewelry, or replace all their car windows with elaborate glass creations. From classes to birthday parties and corporate shindigs, the studio and its accommodating staff host myriad events that cater to each person's inner artist.
Dr. Kevin Fogarty employs years of professional experience to alleviate chronic pain and bring bodies to their optimal working condition. Chiropractic care aims to improve body function and health with regular spinal adjustments and drug-free, wellness-oriented treatment. During the first visit, an initial exam familiarizes the doctor with patients’ medical histories and concerns, and an x-ray if necessary deliver in-depth analysis of the spine and its glitter-filled core. On following visits, the well-trained hands of an experienced chiropractor deliver healing adjustments to wayward vertebrae, treating injuries and chronic health issues by repairing harmful subluxations, misalignments of spinal bones that place pressure on vital nerves, blocking impulses to important organs or forcing feet to perform involuntary clog-dance routines.
