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.
MedSlim Laser’s trained technicians treat as many issues as possible by utilizing four different, noninvasive systems. To shave pounds from clients’ torsos, techs brandish UltraSlim’s red-light therapy, which also helps to improve skin tone or sculpt targeted areas with UltraSlim Cold Light and Zerona scanning lasers. LipoRescue bends light waves to smooth the epidermis after surgical liposuction, whereas the noninvasive face-lift tightens facial areas without cables or surgery. To further ensure success of each treatment, every treatment is performed under physician supervision.
At BodyWise Specialists, epidermal surfaces are landscaped under the direct care of cosmetic laser surgeon Regina Kaufmann, MD. Using the SmartXide DOT treatment developed by Deka Laser Technologies, the fractional skin resurfacing treatment harnesses a pixilated CO2 laser capable of penetrating the skin at a deeper level than traditional laser systems or body-possessing poltergeists. Precise bursts of light dive into cells and are distributed in a matrix pattern that spaces laser exposure to promote rapid recovery. By prompting deep cell turnover, the treatment may reduce the appearance of blemishes, scarring, photodamage, and stubborn ketchup stains, while stimulated collagen production may result in tightened, younger-looking skin.
Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
Timeless Creations's certified 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 us 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.
