Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jamal Yousefi's attention to aesthetic detail telegraphs his belief that plastic surgery is an art. Dr. Yousefi and the staff of Younger Image Plastic Surgery Center flatten fine lines and wrinkles with precise injections of Botox and Dysport. He also fashions slimmer silhouettes with traditional and laser liposuction, redesigns façades with procedures such as face-lifts, eyelid surgery, and chin and cheek implants, and augments bodies with abdominoplasty, tummy tucks, and breast reductions. The doctor even enjoys using his free time to hone his artistic skills by drawing, sculpting with clay, and removing the appendices of statues.
Led by Dr. Shahriar Shahzeidi, the staff at Impressions MediSpa draws from more than 45 years of combined experience to transform clients' skin and bodies with the latest available technology. Dr. Shahzeidi holds three board certifications in pulmonology and pediatrics and specializes in image-changing procedures such as laser liposuction. He stays on the forefront of new clinical beauty techniques and shares his knowledge as a professor at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.

The crew performs body-contouring treatments with technology such as the Accent XL, a noninvasive radio-frequency device designed to tighten skin and reduce cellulite. They combat signs of aging with fractional CO2 and Pixel fractional lasers, perform relaxing massages and facials, and design medical weight-loss programs that help clients fit into slimmer jeans or squeeze between thinner gaps in jail windows.
In addition to often being unwanted, body hair, spider veins, and wrinkles have one thing in common: a fear of the GentleMax Pro laser. Professionals at the Anti Aging Laser Spa use this machine to target the marks of time, wielding its focused energy to shut down hair growth on all skin types, fade unsightly veins, and reduce spots of pigment that aren't simply year-old marinara sauce stains. The advanced laser can also firm up the skin by prompting the production of collagen, thereby lessening wrinkles.
Licensed podiatrists Dr. Francis J. Smith and Dr. Michael A. Klein deliver soothing relief to feet and ankles aching from infections, poor circulation, and arthritis. Operating out of two facilities, the doctors work with such advanced technology as the OssaTron shock-wave system, which treats conditions of the bone, joint, and tendon, and specially designed lasers that painlessly wipe away bacteria tucked beneath nail beds. The staff ensure that patients thoroughly understand their treatments beforehand, and work to offer each one a comfortable, educational visit and free hourly puppet shows at the receptionist’s desk.
Althea Medspa is named for the althea flower, or hibiscus, which is well known for its beauty and healing properties. Inside cozy, private rooms, Althea's team upholds the transformative spirit of this flower when boosting clients’ beauty with professional laser services, cosmetic injections, and infrared therapy. A professional designer was hired to outfit Althea Medspa with a tranquil atmosphere, harnessing the calming practices of feng shui and a fountain to soothe visitors and vacationing flying fish.
Dr. Pat Palumbo marries an artistic eye with advanced aesthetic technology to lead BodySculpture's board-certified staff in restoring patients to natural looking, more youthful versions of their former selves with customized, minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. Clients pad along hardwood floors through the newly renovated haven, passing plush furnishings and contemporary décor on their way to comfortable private treatment rooms. Each patient receives a complimentary consultation, where the doctors listen to medical history and aesthetic concerns before clearly and concisely providing all information concerning possible treatment options and the scientific history of lasers. Laser treatments can be customized to each client's individual skin type and are preformed with advanced technology such as the Cynosure 9300 Alexandrite Laser or the Cynosure Acclaim Yag Laser. Visitors can opt for facial treatments with non-invasive medspa treatments, including dermal fillers and professional-strength chemical peels, or achieve more dramatic results with skillfully executed advanced procedures, such as liposuction, laser hair removal, or aesthetician services.
As a family practitioner, Dr. Jasmine Moghissi oversees a facility that addresses family medicine and illnesses both acute and chronic. Dr. Moghissi and her team focus on beautifying patients—through cosmetic medicine— with largely noninvasive anti-aging and slimming services that require minimal downtime. Skin creams, laser treatments, and microdermabrasions are now part and parcel of her practice, along with weight-loss assistance and paleo/primal diet plans, which teach patients to live and eat like our ancient ancestors, minus all the dinosaur riding.
