Message From Our Founder:
Welcome to Forever Young MedSpa. Our goals are to provide the finest FDA approved Medical Aesthetic Treatments available anywhere in the United States with a staff of professionals & practitioners dedicated to outstanding results, patient safety and patient care. We specialize in “Natural Look” medical aesthetics to keep you looking your absolute best and have your friends saying WOW, you look incredible while asking what you’re doing. Feel free to share but it can also be our little secret!
Since opening in 2005 Forever Young MedSpa has performed many tens of thousands of treatments and built up a clientele of over 4,000 patients. With that experience comes the expertise of knowing how to properly and safely use all the FDA approved services and technologies at our facility. Often times I’m asked why we’ve invested in so much technology. How much? Well our current technology suite cost north of a million dollars.
For Non-Surgical Body Shaping alone we have 8 systems as no one system works 100% of the time on 100% of patients. We often combine systems based on our experience in having performed over 16,000 body shaping treatment to achieve results for our patients that no one system ever could. Our proprietary “EmSure Protocol” uniquely combines the only two body shaping systems that were voted on by RealSelf patients as the “Most Worth It Procedures.” Those two technologies are EMSCULPT & SculpSure that provide non-surgical body shaping, permanent fat reduction, increased muscle strength, increased muscle size & increased muscle definition.
We provide all the latest FDA approved Facial Fillers, Botox & Dysport, Novathreads (PDO threads), Microneedling & PRP and have perfected the art of the painless injection that we are now so famous for. Even the needles we use to inject Botox are nearly 40% thinner than what most other practices use and cost us nearly 5 times more. Sometimes patients who have never had a Botox or Filler injection may be anxious. For them we offer our ProNox system that provides a 50% oxygen and 50% nitrous oxide mixture to quickly diminish anxiety and even provides for a more relaxing experience. Our patients LOVE the comfort, less bleeding and bruising as It’s those little touches, often unseen that our patients tell us they really appreciate!
As you go through our website, we believe you will find all the information you seek and encourage you to contact us with any questions. Since we opened in 2005 we are now on our third million dollar investment in all the latest FDA approved non-surgical technologies and one of the nation’s finest Board Certified Plastic Surgeons with Dr. Paul Wigoda. From Medical Grade Facials & Peels up to the latest trends in Plastic Surgery, we have many options for our patients to fit your lifestyle, budget and expectation of results.
It’s just one reason why for 8 out of the past 9 years, (Sun Sentinel has now stopped giving the award as of 2018) Forever Young MedSpa has won best Cosmetic Surgical & Medical Aesthetics Center in West Broward County. We have a 4.9 rating from over 500 patient reviews on Birdeye, Demandforce & Google. Want another reason? We are proud to state that 98.8% of our patients would recommend Forever Young MedSpa to their own family and friends. Prices range from facials at $99 up to $20,000 surgical procedures and everything in-between.
Building Forever Young has been a labor of love and we could not have accomplished without the love and support of my wife Diana and our sons, Nick and Alex. Thank you for supporting me by making my dream their dream and thus a reality. I cannot say enough about how fortunate we are to have our incredible Forever Young Medspa Staff and I want to thank them for putting their faith in me and for aligning with the vision of providing South Floridians access to one of the best Medical Aesthetics Centers in the United States.
I believe that the human asset is a company’s most prized attribute and Diana and I are blessed that Forever Young Medspa, like Cooper City, are truly someplace special. Lastly and as important as anything above, we LOVE what we do and we are ready to help you on your journey back towards looking and then staying, Forever Young.
Consultations are always complimentary. If you’d like to contact me please email [email protected]
