Since first putting ink to skin in 2000, Fat Buddah Tattoo & Piercing outgrew two locations before finally taking residence in a 3,900-square-foot space. There, the experienced staff adorns clients with piercings and permanent artwork ranging from custom lettering to portraits. The shop’s portfolio boasts a large selection of designs, though they welcome clients to bring in their own ideas via sketches, photos, or vivid recollections of dreams.
Dr. Nader Shehata and his team at Derma Laser Center match clients' exteriors to their body goals through a slate of comprehensive cosmetic procedures. Noninvasive therapies include massage and laser hair removal, which leaves skin looking smoother and more elegant than a latex wedding dress. Alternatively, Shehata performs minimally invasive procedures ranging from dermal fillers to Smartlipo laser fat reduction.
Treat the person, not the symptoms. That is the philosophy board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. H. Michael Bass has followed during a medical career that’s stretched across more than a thousand cosmetic surgeries. It’s also what guides him in his work as medical director of Danik Medspa. Though the advanced spa center offers a range of surgical treatments, including rhinoplasty and breast augmentation, its menu is also filled with a variety of nonsurgical aesthetic services that focus on body sculpting, hair removal, anti-aging, and weight loss. During facials and chemical peels, the center's aestheticians restore firmness, clear away blemishes, and nourish careworn skin with products from the experts at SkinCeuticals, SkinMedica, Obagi, and Abella. When not slimming waistlines with weekly HCG injections, they also turn to the latest laser systems to carefully remove unwanted hair, veins, and tattoos.
South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery's board-certified surgeons harness the latest laser technology, including Smartlipo—a laser fat-reduction treatment that helps sculpt healthy, active bodies beset by lingering paunch. The all-inclusive package includes Smartlipo treatment on a choice of a small area, all pre- and post-op procedures, surgeon and operation-facility fees, any necessary recovery garments, and prescription laughter to aid recovery (a $3,500 value). Smartlipo enhances body contours less invasively and can result in faster recovery than traditional liposuction, and requires only general anesthetic to prep for a series of small, precise incisions, although local anesthetic may be used in addition if needed. In about 90 minutes per treatment area, a laser does its best Death Star impression on fat cells as a tiny tube gently sweeps up the debris. Simultaneously, the laser coagulates blood vessels to minimize bruising and swelling, and it may also stimulate collagen growth and result in a firmer, more toned appearance. Many patients resume normal daily activities such as washing the mail within a day, though strenuous physical activity should be avoided for up to 10 days. Most patients see results immediately and make complete recovery within a month.
Strax Rejuvenation's 10 doctors, many of whom attended Ivy League schools, have collectively performed tens of thousands of cosmetic procedures ranging from rhinoplasty and breast augmentation to liposuction and lap-band treatments. They abate the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes during less invasive skincare procedures such as microdermabrasion, Botox, and laser peels. They reduce fat-volume with weight loss programs and treatments such as Tickle Lipo, Power Assisted Lipo, and a non-surgical alternative Lipo-Ex.
