Owner Marta Montenegro can greet every client at Artistic Beauty Aesthetic Center by name. That’s because she answers every phone call to the med spa herself, asking for patients’ information in her pleasant and welcoming voice. “These are medical procedures we do,” Marta said. “I want to give a personalized experience with each person.” Supervised by Marta, herself a licensed aesthetician, the center’s staff of six doctors works to beautify patients with treatments ranging from minimally invasive hydro facials to surgical liposuction. Like cleaning out a fridge, weight-loss programs such as the injection-based HCG Diet help reveal coveted six-packs long hidden under leftovers.
The rhythmic whirring of fruit-annihilating blades, punctuated by the crunching of ice and glugging of poured juices, courses through Smoothie King’s health emporium. Guests select from a bountiful selection of made-to-order beverages in seven categories—including Stay Healthy, Trim Down, and Get Energy—each formulated with specific fruit combos to help bulk up muscle or trim down waistlines. The Raspberry Sunrise balances out its tartness with honey, while the exotic Mangosteen Madness showcases the Southeast Asian fruit along with strawberries and papaya. Guests can augment their fruit flavors with one of 11 enhancers, such as a vitamin and calcium blend to strengthen joints, or a 125 mg Caffeine Charge enhancer to temporarily make mowing the lawn less sleep-inducing.
As part of a larger medical center overseen by a licensed physician, Kendall Laser Spa boasts an experienced and welcoming staff. Treatments for men and women smooth and refine skin with noninvasive technologies such as lasers and tiny zambonis.
For nearly two decades, the medical professionals and laser technicians at Cellulite & Laser Institute have helped patients achieve cosmetic goals with a diverse palette of surgical and nonsurgical options. Harnessing the power of laser and light energy, the skilled staff banishes unwanted fuzz and out-of-date tattoos from skinscapes. Endermology treatments, meanwhile, use gentle suction and a motorized massager to help smooth out cellulite-ridden areas. Cosmetic injections and microdermabrasion sessions rejuvenate façades, allowing patrons to recapture youthful expressions without resorting to gluing a yearbook photo to their nose.
The technicians at My Body Contour aim to trim excess inches and reduce fat with nonsurgical, pain-free Lipo-Ex treatments. Radio-frequency energy bypasses the surrounding tissue to warm fat cells, causing them to shrink by releasing their store of water, acids, and open umbrellas.
Although the center mainly focuses on reducing bodily circumferences, the staff also spruces up exteriors with Novalash eyelash extensions. Tapered, synthetic strands are bonded to each individual lash, instantly granting additional length and thickness that lasts up to four weeks.
Because Costa Sol Medical Spa is relatively new—it opened its doors in 2009—the staff has its fingers on the pulse of the latest in anti-aging, salon, and massage treatments. These advanced med spa treatments range from an exfoliating Miami peel that evens skin tone to a keratin treatment that defrizzes manes so they look more like silk and less like mohair. Costa Sol also offers a menu of classic salon and spa treatments such as mani-pedis, facials, and haircuts for women, men, and children.
Spa Entice's technicians hoist facial features back into youthful configurations and sculpt bodies into more svelte shapes with noninvasive treatments. Harnessing the powers of laser energy, radio frequency, vacuum, and vibration among other technologies, the staff works with patients to help them achieve their beauty goals or dreams of meeting a real-life laser beam. Additionally, massage and Reiki sessions help clients reach new heights of relaxation, aided by electric fireplaces and lights softened by draped gauze coverings.
