Formerly known for her work with Dr. Nisenbaun at Island Dermatology, licensed aesthetician and cosmetologist JoAnn Gersh Francis now dispenses her expertise from the comfort of her own practice. Joined by medical director Dr. Robin Sykes of Jupiter Plastic Surgery and injectables and laser expert Carol Ann Johnsen, JoAnn repairs troubled skin using the latest generation of laser technologies. Her Palomar Icon machine delivers over 350 joules of IPL energy to multiple layers of skin, easing everything from superficial lines and wrinkles to vascular lesions and acne scars. In addition to laser technologies, a full assortment of injectables and fillers such as Botox, Restylane, and Juvéderm restore skin's youthful plumpness. As a licensed micropigmentation expert, JoAnn can also enhance newly renovated features with permanent makeup applications. Whether she's adding eternal eyeliner or camouflaging inconvenient scars, JoAnn approaches each case with an expertise that earned her accolades from local media outlets including WPTV and the Palm Beach Daily News.
As skin ages and gets exposed to the elements, it begins to show the effects of time in a completely unique way for each person. Dr. Daniela Dadurian and Dr. Robert Hunter aim to slow down the clock and minimize signs of aging. Joined by a team of nurses, medical aestheticians, and other staff members, the doctors from M.D. Beauty Labs enlist cutting-edge techniques and technologies. Cosmetic laser systems accomplish a wide variety of tasks, such as contouring waistlines, minimizing cellulite, preventing the growth of unwanted stubble, fading tattoos, and even improving skin's overall tone and texture. Similarly, the clinic's medical-grade facials and skincare treatments leave skin looking youthful and radiant, and injectable dermal fillers minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
With more than 17 of years of experience performing cosmetic and medically corrective permanent-makeup services, Ashley Swain effortlessly marries a keen aesthetic sensibility with technical proficiency. When she isn't training professionals or leading seminars on permanent makeup for such organizations as the Dermatological Society and the Parkinson's Foundation, she performs each procedure personally. Her palette includes an extensive array of pigments, which allows her to create natural-looking eyebrows, distinguished beauty marks, and fully defined liplines. In addition to virtually eliminating the need for daily makeup applications, her treatments can also help hide the appearance of surgical scars or pockmarks left by ill-advised molten-lava facials.
Instead of remaining in one location, Ashley lends her services to three of the area's permanent-makeup facilities, each of which boasts a full staff as well as an arsenal of medical-grade digital technology.
After more than two decades of practicing surgery in the area, Dr. Luis Viñas—a board-certified plastic surgeon—decided to open L.A. Viñas Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in 2009. Here, he performs and supervises cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries, as well as preventative procedures alongside a well-trained staff of medical assistants, aestheticians, and a physician-assistant laser specialist. The med spa specializes in anti-aging treatments, including injectables, chemical peels, and laser treatments that resurface skin to minimize wrinkles, age spots, and scarring.
The center’s massage therapists specialize in postoperative lymphatic drainage techniques, which help reduce inflammation, prevent scarring, and speed healing by enhancing the system’s ability to filter out toxins hiding behind cardboard replicas of the lungs. In addition to his surgical duties, Dr. Viñas partnered with his daughter to create a skincare line—V Therapeutic—that targets acne without stripping away moisture.
Novalash eyelash extensions, carefully applied by highly trained lash artists at Let's Talk Make Up, draw attention to the eyes. Led by Michelle Mirizio, they hone their skills in a number of areas, including permanent makeup services that keep faces camera-ready 24 hours a day. Waxing evicts unruly hair from faces and limbs, while manicures and pedicures pamper digits and nails. In addition to the services listed above, Let's Talk Make Up's staff lives up to its name with bridal makeup consultations and makeup lessons.
Cosmetic-liposuction expert David Salvador, MD, has performed more than 2,000 successful Smart Lipo Ultra treatments, and teaches other medical professionals how to use the system's laser and ultrasonic energy to sculpt common problem areas. Dr. Salvador leads the highly trained team at New Radiance of Palm Beach—which includes a physician's assistant and medical aestheticians—in both minimally invasive and noninvasive techniques that address everything from stubborn fat deposits and wrinkles to spider veins and unwanted hair with the latest technology.
The physician-directed crew performs five different procedures to address cellulite and contour bodies. They also employ a variety of dermal fillers and laser-based devices to target wrinkles and stretch marks, resulting in firmer skin that can't be obtained through diet, exercise, or daily applications of starch.
