Every pair of eyes is unique. That's the view at Blink Lash Boutique, where owners Janelle Koch and Jen Pearson lead a skilled staff in providing custom eyelash extensions for their guests. Each team member applies synthetic extensions one by one, making lashes longer without fitting them for tiny platform shoes. The strands themselves are available in a variety of styles and thicknesses to create looks from subtle to dramatic. No matter what the desired outcome, the team places client safety and comfort first—Jen and Janelle are both professional aestheticians, and all of their fellow lash stylists undergo rigorous training to ensure their work is suitably flirtatious.
Whether lightening the appearance of wrinkles or blasting away dead skin cells, the medical staff at both locations of Mosa Med Spa rely on up-to-date cosmetics equipment. Board-certified physicians Jose I. Garri, MD, DMD and Dr. Ramiro Peréz, Jr. lead a team of medical professionals, all of whom specialize in minimally invasive techniques such as skin-resurfacing microdermabrasion and anti-aging facials. One of the med spa's crowning jewels is the Candela laser, which heats away melanin deep in the follicles to remove hair from nearly any skin type.
Dr. Eddie Armas, director of Le Nouveau Eco Medical Spa, brings more than 25 years of experience to the clinic's roster of cosmetic and anti-aging procedures. His team of aestheticians fights wrinkles with various peels and collagen-boosting therapies or slims physiques with noninvasive body contouring. Medical weight-loss programs help dieters drop pounds under the watchful eye of a physician, and bio-identical hormone pellets inserted under the skin boost vigor and brain function better than an IV of Jolt cola.:m]]
From the moment guests walk or cartwheel into Ohana Spa of South Miami, a variety of stimuli work together to help them to relax: the sounds of calming waterfalls and the subtle smell of lavender, lemongrass, and peppermint. Owner Dionne Corona's eyebrow-shaping wizardry and custom facials have been featured in multiple publications, which isn’t a surprise considering Dionne has been in the business for more than 20 years.
Within the funky, upbeat confines of this Paul Mitchell Focus studio, D&L’s follicular fanatics refurbish lady locks and man manes with timeless and inimitable looks. Opt for a sassy snip and clip with an advanced hair artist ($65), or master hair artist ($75), all schooled in the art of noggin nest rejuvenation. A hair blow ($45) imparts beautiful blasts of heat for precisely sculpted scalps (included with all cuts), and the uptown girl ($75) upsweeps strands for special occasions such as weddings, high-school reunions, or upscale stuffed-animal parties.
The skilled hide-hydrators at Botanic Skin Care perform rejuvenating treatments using hypoallergenic certified-vegan products. Bodies rejoice at the prospect of a 60-minute wrap treatment in one of three varieties. The sea-mud wrap helps prevent clogged pores by outfitting bodies in an aqua-clay cloak that derives its vitamins and minerals from marine botanicals and blue-green algae. The detoxifying sea-salt scrub wicks away toxins from the skin's surface, resulting in softer, smoother organ suits, and the sweet-smelling chocolate wrap coats skin in a cocoa-based cream, stimulating the senses more effectively than a hug from a giant chocolate bunny. Two 45-minute exfoliating microdermabrasion sessions can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and lipstick stains left by the sun's unsolicited kisses.
