Hawaii-native Mimi Mix spent more than two decades as a nurse healing patients at plastic surgery, orthopedic, and gastroenterology offices while also becoming a Certified Hypnotherapist, Certified Laser Technician, Reiki practioner, and personal transformation coach. But her curiosity got the better of her when she enrolled in a laser technology certification program. There, she was introduced to the Italian-made Vaser Shape MC-1 system, which is an FDA-approved device designed to painlessly melt fat and reduce the appearance of cellulite via ultrasound technology. With a leap of faith, Mimi decided to open Spectrum of Beauty, located in the PanAm Building, where she could feature the VaserShape's no-downtime treatments.
