In Miami, it is no surprise people are prioritizing their health. Offering a personalized medical service with a focus on modern medicine, anti-aging and cardiac health. Apprize Medical and Apprize Beauty are dedicated to each patient's individual health goals to help optimize their health from the inside out to look and feel their best.
“The foundation of what we believe in for health are the basic things, good sleep, hydration, we dig into your nutrition and hormone levels,” shares Dr. Sudeep Singh, MD. “If these levels are off, you won’t look or feel your best. We do very custom and individualized plans for your specific needs.”
The health center offers a range of physician-supervised treatments, including NAD infusions, Plaque-ex, which uses a natural soybean compound to reverse plaque buildup, ozone therapy, peptide treatments and more.
One standout treatment offered at Apprize is ozone therapy, which is supercharged oxygen that helps your body naturally recover. Ozone can also help upregulate your immune system to help your body recover from viruses and long-lasting symptoms. “If you’re looking for full body benefits that will decrease inflammation, provide antioxidant benefits, increase blood flow and tissue organization, then IV ozone therapy is a cutting edge treatment,” shares Dr. Gayan Poovendran, MD.

This Sunset Harbor wellness center believes the secret to overall recovery lies in our bodies. Known for its trademarked RELIEF program, which offers a non-surgical approach to healing by restoring connective tissue, Vitruvia provides an intersection between technology and medicine. While the non-invasive treatment is only for select patients, the approach utilizes in-depth tissue analysis and treats the interstitium, a small bodily fluid pathway. Patients achieved improved mobility by breaking up scar tissue and hydrating the injured area. Created by Christian Seale and Dr. Abhinav Gautam, the pair has helped thousands of patients recover from injuries and opt out of surgery.

It is no secret that Miamians are exposed to plenty of sun and its harsh UV rays. Lucky for us, IMO Cosmetic Dermatology is a concierge-style medical spa that offers non-surgical and age-defying treatments. Founded by Leslie Rohaidy, PA-C AAOPM. IMO- in my opinion- offers patient-driven consultations building a collaborative relationship between physician and patient. IMO provides a plethora of anti-aging and skin-drive treatments, including anti-wrinkle and anti-pigment services using chemical peels, hyaluronic acid dermal filler, micro-needling services and laser treatments. One particular treatment offered at IMO is the Clear and Brilliant laser, which is a non-invasive fractional laser that helps tone skin, minimize pores, fine lines and wrinkles and provide a more youthful glow. “We dedicate our full time and attention towards natural and subtle yet striking aesthetic work. Our patients rave about their results. Within one week post treatment, their skin feels softer and appears more youthful with a more radiant glow with minimal downtime”

Not only is August National Wellness Month, but it is also Hair Loss Awareness Month. Dr. Alan Bauman, an internationally recognized ABHRS-Certified Hair Restoration Surgeon, has pioneered a new needle-free and ultrasound-based system called the Alma “ "Transepidermal Delivery" or Alma TED to help treat hair loss and hair shedding in a non-invasive way. Using ultrasonic sound waves and air pressure to drive topical hair growth treatments and serums into the skin, the treatment helps increase blood flow to the scalp. Patients often describe the experience as relaxing and report seeing fuller and thicker hair after a month.
