While working as a family practitioner in Miami, Dr. José Suarez often fielded requests from his patients for beauty-bolstering treatments. It drove him to open Pinecrest Medical Spa, a place where he could apply his medical expertise to cosmetic problems.
Each appointment begins with a consultation, where Dr. Suarez determines the ideal course of aesthetics-enhancing action. Unwanted wrinkles, hair, and acne can all be dealt with noninvasively using lasers or collagen-rallying inspirational speeches, while injections of Botox or dermal fillers work beneath the skin to keep countenances smooth.

The instructors at Perfect Balance Fitness & Martial Arts Training strive to create a happy marriage between Eastern and Western philosophies. Master Al Agon draws from the discipline and fitness ideals of ancient martial arts techniques and modernizes them with instruction tailored to help kids build discipline and focus in school and professionals cope with stresses at work. To earn a black belt, students must exhibit devotion not only at the gym but also in other important aspects of life, such as relationships and school work, striving toward a lifetime of fitness and overall contentment. In addition to the martial arts program, the venue also hosts intense kickboxing classes in which students pummel punching bags until they agree to share the secrets of withstanding a pummeling. One-on-one personal training sessions also adhere to Agon's training philosophy and are tailored to help clients meet their individual wellness goals.
