Hyperbaric Chamber Therapy - HBOT

Hyperbaric Chamber Rejuvenation Therapy

Room 7

It's now time to rejuvenate yourself from the inside. The latest technology in oxygen therapies is now available in Doral. Boost your body oxygen levels for a healthier living and at the same time look at your best.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is the medical use of oxygen in a pressurized environment, at a level higher than 1 atmosphere absolute. Increased pressure allows for oxygen to dissolve and saturate the blood plasma, which yields a broad variety of positive physiological, biochemical and cellular effects.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been demonstrated in several clinical studies to enhance the body’s innate ability to repair and regenerate. It is used as an adjunct therapy to complement and enhance the healing process in both chronic and acute conditions.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized room or tube.In a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber, the air pressure is increased to three times higher than normal air pressure. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure.

Your blood carries this oxygen throughout your body. This helps fight bacteria and stimulate the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing.

Your body's tissues need an adequate supply of oxygen to function. When tissue is injured, it requires even more oxygen to survive. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the amount of oxygen your blood can carry. An increase in blood oxygen temporarily restores normal levels of blood gases and tissue function to promote healing and fight infection.

Pure oxygen can cause fire if a spark or flame ignites a source of fuel. Because of this, you can't take items such as lighters or battery-powered devices into the hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber. In addition, to limit sources of excess fuel, you may need to remove hair and skin care products that are petroleum based and potentially a fire hazard.

Oxygen recently has been found to be an important component in skin rejuvenation, treatment of photoaging skin, and improvement in skin complexions. The interest in the use of HBOT for this purpose is continually growing and becoming more widespread. In addition to aging and genetic makeup, chronic UV radiation due to everyday exposure, especially UV-B, can greatly increase the rate of wrinkle formation through increasing skin angiogenesis and degradation of extracellular matrix molecules.

The use of HBOT and hyperoxia conditions has been found to attenuate the formation of wrinkles from UV irradiation. It accomplishes the task by possibly inhibiting various processes and pathways involved such as the HIF1-α, VEGF, neutrophil infiltrations, which are directly involved with promoting skin angiogenesis in its active state.

Joseph Priestley, one of the first discoverers of oxygen, once said, “Who can tell but that, in time, this pure air may become a fashionable article in luxury.” It seems that as the world is developing and Joseph Priestley’s prediction about air is becoming a reality.

Receiving regular treatments of HBOT is thought to increase skin elasticity and stimulate collagen production, leading to reduction of wrinkles and fine lines and improvement in skin texture. Oxygen is used in skin care because it is thought that delivery of natural oxygen increases cell metabolism. The use of oxygen therapy as a process of skin rejuvenation and reduction of loss of elasticity leading to formation of lines and wrinkles are becoming increasingly widespread in skin care clinics because of increasing successful results of their usage due to developing technologies.

To benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy, you'll likely need more than one session.

PDO Threads - Face and Neck Lift

NovaThreads vs Botox vs Fillers

Dream of a lunchtime non-invasive face lift? Well dream no more! We are ecstatic to be one of the few medical facilities here in South Florida to offer Absorbable PDO Thread Lifts!
What Exactly Are PDO Threads aka Polydioxanone Threads?
They are hypodermic needles preloaded with a PDO suture. While you may have not heard of the term PDO sutures before, they have been used for years to perform open-heart surgery. This absorbable thread is one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body and fully absorbs within 4 to 6 months. The best part? Visible results can last up to 2 years!
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
The treatment plan is simple:
1.We insert the preloaded needles into the skin on the targeted areas. 
2.The PDO suture stays beneath the skin as soon as the needle is removed. 
3.You’re done! In and out in under an hour with no downtime!
How Does It Work?
By using the skin’s self-repair mechanism, we purposely cause micro ‘injuries’ in the targeted area that will then stimulate new collagen synthesis.  It’s the same principle used behind our other procedures like Microneedling, Derma Pen, Chemical Peels, and Fractional Laser. With the insertion of the PDO Thread, the skin reacts to the thread and begins to gently repair itself and create new collagen! Visible results can take up to 2 months but a 30% improvement can be seen immediately.

PDO Threads, absorbable suture?

Now available at Aromas Medspa in Miami, Doral, Kendall and Weston. Our team of Doctors are fully certified for the application of PDO Threads.

  • It’s a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone. PDO sutures are used to perform cardiothoracic surgery (such as open-heart surgery). It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body.
  • Your skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months & won’t leave you with any scar tissue.


We offer 2 types of procedures with the PDO Threads: Mesh and Lift.
1.Mesh: We create a net within the skin by crossing vertical and horizontal threads. The mesh design tightens the skin in a subtle and gradual way from within.   
2.Lift: For more dramatic and immediate results we use barbed PDO sutures to provide a grip underneath the skin, allowing us to pull the suture in 1 or 2 directions. This pull creates an instant skin lift!
No cuts or incisions.

Dissolvable PDO Threads

Purely injections!

The PDO Threads are needles that are pre-loaded with a thread. Simply insert the whole needle at subdermal level, parallel to the surface of the skin, & pull the needle out.

The PDO thread remains under the skin.


While botulinum toxins (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin) and injectable fillers are most effective on the upper and middle third of the face, it is challenging to treat the jawline and neck. This is where PDO Threads comes in! PDO threads can be inserted anywhere on the body but work most effectively on the mid and lower third of the face and the NECK. Also they are perfect for brow lift, repair saggy skin on arms, knees, inner thighs, abdomen, and BUTT LIFT.


Does It Hurt?
While most patients report mild pain and discomfort associated with the procedure, we do apply a layer of lidocaine cream during preparation to minimize discomfort.
How Can I Prepare? 
Like with any injectable treatment, you run the risk of temporary bruising and swelling. In order to prevent bruising, eliminate blood thinners like aspirin, NSAIDs, red wine/alcohol, Vitamin E, fish oil, green tea, and herbal supplements for a few days before your treatment.

Sculptra - the most natural filler

From Galderma, the same laboratories that have given us Restylane Lyft and Restylane Silk, comes Sculptra Aesthetic! Unlike most of the other short duration hyaluronic acid fillers in the market, Sculptra is the first FDA approved poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) derma filler and can last up to 2 years! Now available in Miami and Broward at Aromas Medspa.
Resized 1172Resized 1556
What Exactly is a Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA)?
Polylactic acids are a non-toxic, biodegradable substance that have been used for decades as a suture material. As a derma filler works particularly well in the mid and lower half of the face. It’s perfect for cheeks augmentation, to fill laughing lines, marionette lines and deep nasolabial folds (the area between your nose and your lips). It’s also perfect to fill deep tempos. Since PLLA derma fillers rely on the skins ability to repair and heal itself, it does not produce immediate results like other derma fillers. Instead, it stimulates your own body's collagen production, so results appear gradually over a period of a few weeks. The effects of PLLA generally become increasingly apparent over time and its effects may last up to 2 years!
Where Can I Apply Sculptra?
Sculptra helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase volume that has been lost to aging. It works gradually to restore a youthful-looking appearance. Since it is applied near the subcutaneous layer, we can apply it anywhere on the body: from your face to your gluteus, and the latest application is for cellulite. However, Sculptra has to be diluted at least 3 days prior to its application, so plan your treatment ahead of time. But don’t worry, you get to relax afterward as there is no downtime with the procedure. 
The Sculptra Buttlift
If you have a flat or sagging buttocks and/or always desire more volume then the Sculptra buttlift is for you! Desired results usually require 2-3 treatments, spaced at least 6 weeks apart. As the Sculptra works, you will begin to notice a change to your posterior. The buttocks will appear fuller than before, enhancing your natural curves. Sculptra is the safest and most natural option to increase the size of your buttocks, there is no downtime and no special instructions to follow after the procedure.
Why Sculptra?
Other dermal fillers only address lines, wrinkles, and folds while Scupltra addresses collagen loss and weakened skin structure. Collagen loss weakens your skin’s inner structure, reducing its ability to maintain elasticity and moisture. It’s this weakened inner structure that leads to lines, wrinkles, and folds. Over the course of several sessions (an average of 3 over a few months, spaced with at least 4 weeks apart), Sculptra Aesthetic produces subtle and gradual results that emerge over time for a more natural restoration.
How Can I Prepare? Like with any injectable treatment, you run the risk of temporary bruising and swelling. In order to prevent bruising, eliminate blood thinners like aspirin, NSAIDs, red wine/alcohol, Vitamin E, fish oil, green tea, and herbal supplements for a couples of days before your treatment.
