Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Barry Resnik has a number of outlets for his talents: he serves as the team dermatologist for the Florida Marlins; he volunteers at the Open Door Health Center, which offers affordable healthcare; and, at the Resnik Skin Institute, he practices dermatology and dermatologic surgery for adults, kids, and snakes who can't shed because they slithered through crazy glue.
Dr. Resnik's skincare ambitions are vast, covering everything from medical concerns such as psoriasis and alopecia to cosmetic desires and skin conditions such as scar management and moles. Ever tech-savvy, the doctor's staff mans lasers to nix unwanted stretch marks and sun spots, and they also summon a Naturalipo liposuction machine, a skin-lightening system, and a stock of dermal fillers to do their bidding.
All plastic surgeons work to achieve their clients’ aesthetic goals. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Adam J. Rubinstein, however, goes one step further. He combines surgical and nonsurgical procedures with a unique holistic approach to promote his patients' overall wellness just as much as their exterior appearance. Whether preparing to perform liposuction, a Botox injection, or laser skin resurfacing, he and his team start with a consultation, ensuring the process is outlined and any questions have been answered. Additional thoughtful touches, such as complimentary meetings with nutritionists, help patients continue their transformations after they’ve left the clinic. When procedures are finished, the staff minimizes recovery time with herbal supplements and written prescriptions for chicken noodle soup.
DermatoneMiami's licensed technicians and nurses wield FDA-certified radio-frequency generators for skin-tightening treatments that seek to mitigate stretch marks and cellulite. The therapeutic, deep-seeking heat massages existing collagen and promotes the production of new collagen in hopes of firmer skin surfaces. The clinic and its technicians, however, don't only offer this treatment—they also present a slate of facials designed with essential oils, clay masks, and vitamin C. Additionally, they offer weight-loss services via vitamin injections, recipe books, and freezing one's snacks in a block of ice.
The doctors at Pascual MD have a comprehensive approach to each treatment they provide, whether clients seek cosmetic surgery, medical weight-loss supervision, or classic skincare services. They also equip their office with delicate lasers capable of softening wrinkles, ousting unwanted hair, and drawing old-timey mustaches on hamburger buns.

With its sleek, modern decor—white leather couches, gray walls, and purple accent lights—it's clear upon first glance that Biotech Wellness Center is not the type of med spa that generally prioritizes relaxation over high-tech treatments. But those who care about getting results may actually relax once they see Biotech's arsenal of lasers, dermal fillers, and IV therapy equipment.
Its laser and intense-pulsed-light treatments fight a variety of skin woes, including rosacea and acne, and can remove unwanted hair and spider veins. Venus Freeze treatments shrink fat cells with radio frequency, and platelet-rich plasma treatments inject platelets harvested from the client's own blood into faces to stimulate collagen production. To boost clients' energy levels without forcing them to spin around in a circle really fast to generate it, the staff administers IV treatments, which infuse bodies with vitamins.
Dr. Adam Gropper has devoted his career to helping patients suffering from artery and vein disorders—to date, he's performed more than 1,000 vascular procedures. As the owner of North Beach Vascular & Aesthetics, the board-certified radiologist treats varicose and spider veins with minimally invasive techniques such as ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy and Veinwave treatments. In addition to treating veins, Dr. Gropper and his staff schedule traditional med-spa treatments such as Botox injections, facials, and laser hair removal, which is great for removing the hair that gets stuck to you after a haircut.
