The therapists at Touch Angel Day Spa may not be heaven-sent, but they do have a healing touch. They specialize in five different kinds of massage: Swedish, deep tissue, sports, pre-natal, and Thai, and can enhance each session with soothing add-ons such as hot stones and aromatherapy. But their expertise doesn't end there––to help clients feel better from the inside out, they offer a nutritional program and ionic detox cleansing to help the body stay balanced and free of impurities. And, to ensure clients leave looking and feeling their best, the staff also performs cosmetic services ranging from anti-aging eye and lip treatments, to soothing facials that help erase acne, rosacea, and the tiny beards that elves draw on some people while they sleep.
It’s hard to say what’s more impressive: Dora Salazar and Maria Pana’s skincare knowledge, or their collection of passport stamps. The licensed aestheticians and paramedical experts have traveled across Europe, Brazil, and the United States in an effort to hone their craft, and it shows. Dora, for example, draws on her diverse medical background to clear up acne, treat rosacea, and lighten up hyperpigmentation with clinical-grade products. In addition to facials and exfoliating microdermabrasion, the team enhances skin with Perfector treatments that use nanotechnology to boost intercellular communication. This improved communication ramps up cells’ output of collagen and reduces the number of microscopic inboxes clogged with snail mail.
Alberto Ferreira brings 25 years of coloring and styling experience to his namesake salon, where stylists and cosmetologists handle head-to-toe beauty services. Moroccanoil products accompany combs, scissors, and blow dryers during precision cuts and Go Well coloring treatments, and keratin products smooth over frizz the way a bulldozer smoothes over arguments when you give it as a gesture of love. Skinny massage weight-loss packages named after Halle Berry and Marilyn Monroe incorporate botanicals and seaweed wraps, and facials feature deep cleaning, and soothing massages.
Before she became an aesthetician, BioVital's founder was a dentist and then an artist, honing the clinical and visual skills that she's folded into her current practice. Fillers, facials, permanent makeup, and laser tightening restore youthful looks. Lasers also make themselves useful during hair removal, body sculpting, and sclerotherapy treatments. For continued treatment on the home front, products from Phytobiodermie address specific sets of skin issues with formulas infused with essential oils, minerals, algae, and clay scraped from the smoothest golems.
An on-site physician supervises the staff at Radiance Medspa of Weston, allowing them to perform medical-grade services including microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and Botox treatments with confidence. But unlike an empty meat locker, the spa isn’t just some cold space. Before or after treatments, visitors can take a moment to relax in the tranquility room, which houses a babbling fountain and pulses with the gentle sounds of soothing music.
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.
