For nearly two decades, the medical professionals and laser technicians at Cellulite & Laser Institute have helped patients achieve cosmetic goals with a diverse palette of surgical and nonsurgical options. Harnessing the power of laser and light energy, the skilled staff banishes unwanted fuzz and out-of-date tattoos from skinscapes. Endermology treatments, meanwhile, use gentle suction and a motorized massager to help smooth out cellulite-ridden areas. Cosmetic injections and microdermabrasion sessions rejuvenate façades, allowing patrons to recapture youthful expressions without resorting to gluing a yearbook photo to their nose.
With average temperatures in the '70s and '80s, it makes sense that Miami is full of body-baring outfits. All that skin is why people like the owners of Velour Med Spa were able to open a successful laser hair-removal business in 2005. With the hope of further beautifying bodies, they established Velour—a full med spa—in 2010.
Its certified medical aestheticians, who are supervised by a medical director, still perform the popular laser hair-removal treatments, but they also fade unwanted spider veins, smooth cellulite, and rely on intense pulsed light to refresh faces. In addition to beautifying clients, they relax with massages and mani-pedis, which take place in a pristine all-white room.
As their salon's name suggests, the staffers at Fancy Nails specialize in luxurious nail services. They coat finger- and toenails in shimmering shades of acrylic and gel polishes as their clients relax in chairs, chatting about their day or showing off how many U.S. state birds they can name off the top of their head. The technicians also excel at some non-nail beauty services, such as waxing and eyelash extensions.
As with any other modern-day clinical procedure, aesthetic laser treatments tend to yield the best results when administered and supervised by specialists. That's why Go Laser's licensed electrolysis staff and certified laser technicians work under the medical direction of Dr. Diana E. Vargas. Harnessing the power of the GentleMax laser, techs can help clients zap off unwanted hairs, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes, and treat varicose veins. Since the laser treatments only emit noninvasive light energy, patients generally only feel a tingling sensation on their skin similar to that of a snapping rubber band or break-dancing fairy.
From sleek looks to fancy updos, the stylists at Elena's Beauty Salon transform hair into beautiful new styles. Keratin treatments eradicate frizz, infusing manes with keratin proteins for shinier, sleeker styles, whereas partial highlights add new dimension to strands with pops of color. The team of beauty experts also preps coifs for special events, such as weddings, with intricate updos or curls. In addition, the bilingual salon offers nailcare services.
Each member of Stript Wax Bar's staff specializes in waxing, using top-shelf waxing products and artful technique to efficiently strip away hair. Technicians ensure cleanliness through a strict no-double-dipping policy, clearing away hair as guests lounge in soothing environs.
