At InShapeMD, doctors shepherd clients through wellness programs designed to help them feel younger and increase their energy. Exams and lab work provide the medical team with baseline data at the start of the signature Count Down Diet—a guided, one-on-one support and nutrition regimen that can be supplemented with injections of vitamin B12, lipotropics, or big-band music, all of which are designed to boost energy. Hormone-replacement programs for both women and men aim to restore focus, wellness, and libido by adding hormone-replacement for testosterone injections, creams, and troches.
The aestheticians at Pure Skin Medical Spa have the solution to whatever your skin needs—whether it's a deep pore cleansing, exfoliation, or treatment for blemishes. Classic European facials soothe sensitive skin, whereas deep pore facials help remove dirt, oil, and lost keys hiding inside pores. An eye-rescue treatment can be added to facials for a quick yet effective defense against dark circles and puffiness. Other add-ons include crystal microdermabrasion or Obagi blue peels for more dramatic results.
Led by a team of board-certified plastic surgeons, PREMIERE Center for Cosmetic Surgery helps clients to combat encroaching signs of aging and restore self-confidence with surgical and nonsurgical aesthetic treatments. Precise injections ease wrinkles or restore volume in the skin, making faces less crinkly and easier to lay flat on the Xerox machine. Complexions are further enhanced by services including peels, microdermabrasion, and medical-grade facials. Patients looking for more intensive transformations can consult with the surgeons, whose skilled hands perform lifts, tucks, and reconstructive procedures.
In a field that sees only 100 new graduates each year, Dr. Obinna Nwobi further distinguishes himself by considering all options for treating vascular conditions to limit hospital stays and recovery times. Together with his staff, he uses surgical, nonsurgical, and minimally invasive methods to treat existing conditions, and educates patients on preventive health to limit risk factors—including obesity, high blood pressure, and smoking. His Doppler-ultrasound-equipped laboratory also limits discomfort when screening patients for strokes, aneurysms, and tolerance for knock-knock jokes. In addition to treating patients across his four office locations, Dr. Nwobi has donated his time and talents to performing life-saving surgery for medical missions in Nigeria.
Board-certified Dr. Jennifer Landy of The Landy Center for Plastic Surgery specializes in facial cosmetic procedures that create more youthful expressions and appearances. Before performing blepharoplasty—Italian for "eyelid lift"—Dr. Landy consults with patients to discuss the treatment, explain after-care procedures, and answer questions. A light application of local anesthetic prepares the eyelid for a tiny incision in its natural crease, which gives the doctor access to excess skin while allowing for minimal scarring after healing sets in. The 30-minute outpatient session leaves patients with reduced over-eye skin folds, and makes it possible for eyes to display their colors as prominently as flags on strike or a peacock in the stocks.
For more than two decades, the licensed beauticians of Premadonna's Salon have employed the latest in salon and spa treatments to bring out their clients’ best features. Facials are a part of that regimen, and the team renders them with pore-cleansing enzymes and hydrating masks. But the staff specializes in permanent makeup, using the interdermal pigmentation method—during which they apply micro insertions of natural pigments into the skin. The South Tampa location—sheathed in denim blue walls and black furnishings—also houses a team of nail technicians who buff, file, and paint nails with polish colors that are dazzling, like a turtle that runs as fast as a cheetah.
