Faces, like ice rinks, begin smooth, but eventually need resurfacing due to aging and hosting children's birthday parties. Smooth countenances with today's Groupon: for $89, you get a microlaser peel at Euro Spa Médica in Coral Gables (a $500 value).
With more than 20 years of experience, Dr. Gloria Lopez and her staff at Euro Spa Médica peel away layers of dull, sun damaged skin with microlaser peels. The technician begins by applying a topical anesthetic to mugs 30–45 minutes prior to the treatment, ensuring a relatively painless procedure. A heated, computer-guided laser then glides over the outer layer (10–20 microns) of the skin to improve elasticity and even out skin tones while also peeling away fine lines, shallow scars, and constantly stepped-in puddles. After the treatment, revivified patients can expect a short recovery time of three to six days, after which they may return to daily activities such as work, running errands, or making faces at nearby nuclear reactors.
In addition to having more than 20 years of experience performing aesthetic treatments, Dr. Gloria Lopez supplements her own skills with lasers, high-tech machinery, and dermal fillers. She wields the LipoLite laser body-sculpting machine to liquidize and remove unwanted fat cells, and she uses the VelaSmooth hand piece to flatten the dimplage that comes with cellulite or thighs that simply smile too much. Dr. Lopez can also tackle unwanted body hair, wrinkles, sun damage, and acne with her many in-office devices.
