When it comes to his bona fides, Dr. Carlos Verdeza is a regular jet-setter. He first graduated from medical school at Columbia's Pontifical Bolivariana University before becoming an OB/GYN at Albany Medical Center in New York. From there, he cut a swath through the medical community, snatching up certifications from the International Society of Cosmetic Gynecology, American Academy of Anti Aging and Metabolic Medicine, and American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.
At his private practice, the good doctor blends his vocational pursuits to deliver a staggering array of answers to cosmetic concerns. Folks looking to offload some stubborn pounds can come in for weight-loss therapy, liposuction, or tummy tucks. If you're looking to turn back the clock, Dr. Verdeza is well-versed in hormone replacement therapy and platelet-rich plasma facelifts that redirect a client's own platelets to restore the appearance of youth to visages.
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.
Inspired by her own physical rehabilitation due to chiropractic care, board-certified chiropractic physician Dr. Kimberly Joseph-Alvarez of Complete Chiropractic Health Center strives to better her patients’ well-being with personalized plans that treat bodily imbalances. In tandem with x-rays that reveal disorganized vertebrae, a chiropractic exam spells out potential causes of painful symptoms and viable noninvasive methods to repair bodies without voiding their warranty. Careful adjustments target asymmetrical sections of the anatomy with controlled pressure that returns the spine to a normal, harmonious position. Using soft-tissue manipulation, the one-hour massage targets muscles, tendons, and ligaments to shoo away loitering stress from the doorstep of relaxation.
Dr. Jason A. Bailey was playing football his sophomore year at Vanderbilt when he injured his hand. After two years of conventional medicine, two of his fingers still felt numb so he decided to give chiropractics a try. A few adjustments later, his digits were in tip-top shape. Though he could now finally pursue a career in professional finger painting, Dr. Bailey was inspired to become a chiropractor.
Since then, Dr. Bailey has opened his own practice and shares his spinal know-how as the co-host of a radio show called High Performance Health and Healing. At the office, Bailey treats patients with myriad techniques, using hands, heat, lasers, and mechanical systems to provide drug- and surgery-free solutions for his clients.
Led by a chiropractor with more than a decade of experience, Bailey Chiropractic’s staff of technicians and massage therapists helps patients maintain a healthy body free from chronic pain. Along with spinal adjustments—designed to correct subluxations, or nerve-blocking misalignments of the vertebrae—patients come in for spinal decompression, a surgery-free back therapy that can treat issues ranging from herniated discs to osteoarthritis. Chiropractic services focus on the spine, and therapeutic massages and specialized exercises seek to counteract muscular imbalances that can cause tension and lower a person’s maximum high-five elevation. To help clients in their quests for a pain-free existence, Bailey Chiropractic’s facility features a slew of state-of-the-art equipment, including a digital x-ray machine, electrical-stimulation devices, and Triton DTS decompression tables.
Vida Day Spa & Wellness Center offers a full menu of professional spa services in a peaceful, intimate environment. Each treatment begins with a skin analysis that allows the spa staff to customize caretaking to each client's skin type. During a D'vine red wine and champagne facial, patrons' pores quaff exfoliating elixirs rich with red grape, grape seed, and wine extracts that deeply cleanse and exfoliate enervated visages. After the skin's dull outer layers have taken leave of the epidermal party—ensuring tighter, fresher-looking skin festivities—a skillful scalp massage stimulates blood flow and witty conversation about hair metal. To complete the 75-minute treatment, a cosmetic touch-up with mineral makeup and a duo of specialized eye and lip treatments polish the window to the soul and the portal to the esophagus.
