When the first Dermatone Skin Rejuvenation Center opened in downtown Miami in November 2010, it aimed to help clients rejuvenate their youth and embrace their outer aesthetics. Today, the franchise still relies on carefully selected treatments designed to erase years off their clients' appearances. Dermatone's licensed technicians and nurses have treated thousands of guests with FDA-approved techniques and equipment, including radio-frequency generators for skin-tightening treatments that seek to mitigate stretch marks and cellulite. The therapeutic, deep-seeking heat massages existing collagen and promotes the production of new collagen in hopes of firmer skin surfaces. The clinic and its technicians, however, don’t only offer this treatment—they also present a slate of facials, designed with essential oils, clay masks, and vitamin C. Additionally, they offer weight-loss services via vitamin injections, recipe books, and freezing one's snacks in a block of ice.
At Laser Therapy Spa, technicians and aestheticians enroll in ongoing education classes to make sure their services stay on the cutting edge. The dual-focus spa encompasses two main branches. One centers around laser treatments performed with Harmony XL or Accent XL lasers, which can be calibrated to minimize unwanted hair or skin blemishes or to tighten lax skin on the face or body. The other side of the center focuses on traditional spa services, including massages and facials administered with Obagi and SkinMedica products. The spa even has a hyberbaric oxygen chamber, which clients can hop into during immune-boosting oxygen-therapy treatments or during a game of hide-and-seek with the office staff.
French women are known for their seemingly effortless beauty. But how do they actually manage it? Some of the answers are found inside the royal purple walls of the French Beauty Institute, where aestheticians brighten complexions, contour curves, and care for nails to impart an I-woke-up-like-this glow. Makeup artists are available to add pigment, and clients walk out feeling refreshed, ready to turn heads on the Champs Élysées or a really fancy grocery store.
Skin and Health Institute is the domain of Dr. Leonard Levitz, an expert in aesthetic medicine whose three decades of experience help him inspire self-confidence and healthy glows. Using medical technologies such as injectable Botox and Xeomin, he helps clients embrace their own natural beauty, coaxing them toward more polished versions of their own fresh-faced selves.

Julia, a skincare specialist at Skin by Choice, was drawn to her profession through altruistic desires. "I felt that I [could] help people feel good about themselves," she says, "and [could] give them the utmost confidence in life." She works toward these goals by performing a slew of non-surgical beautifying services such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion treatments, and facial waxing. She also calls upon technologies to treat the signs of aging, using radio frequency waves to tighten sagging facial skin or using ultrasonic vibrations to minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
Though each of her treatments target different issues, they create transformations without the need for surgery or down time, which allows clients to immediately return to their normal routines, unlike joining a cult.
Imagine feeling completely weightless and free from all of life's stresses, and you have just scratched the surface of what's possible at Miami Floatation. Owned and operated by energy work, healing art, and meditation specialists, Miami Floatation is the longest continuous flotation operation in South Florida. Its tanks, which contain 900 pounds of epsom salt for easy flotation, isolate users from all external stimuli—even the sensations of hot and cold. The tanks maintain a 93.5-degree temperature that's essentially indistinguishable from skin temperature. As a result, unburdened floaters can luxuriate in such benefits as a profound state of relaxation, a boost in serotonin levels, and lower blood pressure.
Miami Floatation features an upscale, therapeutic environment and teams up with medical facilities to provide services in order to ensure a safe experience. In addition to floating sessions, the spa further helps clients relax and heal with acupuncture and massage.
