As a woman, Jennifer Mignano understands the popular desire to have nice skin, but as a former educator at the International Dermal Institute, she knows that it doesn’t come easily. That’s why all of her spa’s facials include the most up-to-date techniques, as well as mini skincare lessons to help clients maintain their glowing complexions between appointments.
Using Skin Fitness Therapy and PCA products, Jennifer and her staff can buff tired skin with exfoliating facials or reverse the signs of aging with collagen peels infused with natural fruit acids. To complement these medical-grade treatments, Jennifer and her staff are also trained and certified in wielding IPL lasers to reinvigorate complexions or remove unwanted hair from bodies and the family dog’s favorite chair.
Tropicalaser’s medically supervised staff of laser hair specialists is armed with best-in-class technology: Alexandrite, Gyag, and Diode lasers from renowned companies such as Candela and Lumenis. Because this Groupon is good for the treatment of cheeks, areola, chin, ears, lip, front or back of neck, feet, hands, underarm, bikini line, or happy trail, these follicle-zappers can superbly smoothify almost any strand-stuffed space. Each session lasts only a few minutes, and, though laser hair removal is not necessarily painless, it is significantly less painful than the removal of a duct-tape moustache.
With affordable and safe medical alternatives in mind, founders Dr. Otto Jimenez and licensed aesthetician Marcela Rivera combine their experience to provide cosmetic-enhancement procedures such as liposculpture, buttocks augmentation, noninvasive body contouring, and Botox facial rejuvenation. Their liposculpture sessions take place in-office, rather than in a surgery center, and allow patients to reposition throughout the procedure for accurate fat reduction in all areas of the body, including the neck, flanks, and inner thighs. To polish up faces, they treat conditions such as acne and age spots with facials, and restore youthful glows with skin tightening using radiofrequency energy. Beyond cosmetic procedures, including permanent makeup and electrolysis, they also perform bio-identical hormone-replacement therapy to combat loss of sex drive and weight fluctuations.
Under the supervision of a physician, the technicians at Sunrise Laser & Hormone Institute beautify bodies with a variety of noninvasive, high-tech services. They remove hair from virtually any skin type with the Alma Soprano laser, whose cooling mechanism keeps skin surfaces so comfortable that many patients compare the treatment to a hot-stone massage. To reduce sagging skin, the Alma Soprano also uses true laser technology to tighten skin in the arms, neck, face, and stomach. To reduce cellulite and wrinkles caused by attempting to spell kohlrabi, staff members call on the radio frequency and magnetic pulses of non-invasive systems. Their service menu also includes laser body-slimming treatments and bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy, along with body contouring, chemical peels, and facials.
