Dr. Hevia’s fascination with the facial structure – especially as it is impacted by the aging process – has inspired him to pursue a specialized career focus on Cosmetic Dermatology.
Originally from Havana, Cuba, this American-raised and American-trained bi-lingual medical specialist has a long-standing reputation for his expert facial rejuvenation services. Because of this proven expertise – based on both hands-on practice and more than two decades of exceptional clinical research – has led to the development of his ever-expanding patient base among South Florida’s, as well as South America’s, socialites and celebrities, along with thousands of Miami-area residents who expect nothing short of the best medical care. A board-certified cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Hevia is an active member of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery.
Dr. Hevia earned his Doctorate of Medicine in 1987 from the University of Miami School of Medicine. Following a one-year internship at Mount Sinai Medical Center, Miami Beach, he went on to complete his residency at the University of Miami School of Medicine, Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous (skin) Surgery in 1991. Since completing his formal education, Dr. Hevia has not only attended scores of post-graduate medical education programs, he has established himself as a leader in the ranks of both researchers and academic physicians, as well as treating patient in his exceptionally well-regarded private practice.
His impressive and notable medical career spans more than two decades. Upon completing his residency in 1991, Dr. Hevia joined a group practice in Tallahassee, Florida, before relocating back to Coral Gables in 1999. He continued to expand his referral-driven patient base as an associate in a large dermatology practice until 2009, when he ventured into his specialized private practice. “Going solo” as a pre-eminent cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Hevia pursues a more personalized approach to cosmetic dermatology, one that replaces cosmetic surgery with non-surgical cosmetic procedures, while providing his patients with exceptional results. His practice has flourished as a result of his stellar reputation as an expert in refreshing, restoring and rejuvenating natural beauty among his patients.
Truly inspired to explore the full potential of cosmetic dermatology, Dr. Hevia has participated in numerous clinical trials for pharmaceutical companies; he has also performed in-depth research and conducted numerous case studies to determine the effectiveness of various skin-enhancing products, a pursuit that has led to the launch of his exclusive line of skincare products, HEVIA MD SKIN SCIENCE™, released in the fall of 2011.
The high regard he enjoys from both his patients and his peers, coupled with his years of extensive training – along with his willingness to share his vast knowledge and expertise – have put Dr. Hevia at the forefront of his specialized field of non-surgical cosmetic dermatology. He currently serves as Volunteer Associate Clinical Professor at the Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine; he has also published more than twenty professional peer-reviewed papers and has conducted dozens of professional-education courses for his fellow physicians. He is a sought-after speaker, lecturer and presenter at medical symposiums and expositions for prestigious hospitals, healthcare centers, educational institutions and research foundations; he also appears regularly on television programs to share his expertise in the growing popularity of cosmetic rejuvenation.
