Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Lewis Obi of Renaissance Center for Cosmetic Renewal has assembled a staff dedicated to the artistry of beauty-enhancing therapies. A Jacksonville native, Dr. Obi served in the United States Marine Corps and graduated cum laude from the University of Florida with a pharmacy degree. He then continued his medical education at the University of Miami, where his medical thesis was published in the international magazine Medical World News.
Dr. Obi performs myriad plastic-surgery procedures such as face-lifts, tummy tucks, and liposuction, as well as minimally and noninvasive laser procedures ranging from skin tightening to laser hair removal. He and his technicians also perform facial cosmetic treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and photofacial treatments that aim to treat a variety of skin types and ailments, such as rosacea, sun damage, and Sharpie unibrows.
Sometimes inner peace is a place only accessible via outer beauty. At Advanced Medical Spa Services, the two go hand in hand, much like a pie and the face of your least favorite college professor. Its services range from traditional SkinMedica facials to medical-grade treatments, including laser photo rejuvenation and tattoo removal. Those seeking to completely reinvent their exteriors can opt for plastic surgery, performed by licensed physicians, or SlimLipo, a body-sculpting procedure.
Salon owner Lisa D'Amico has spent the last 15 years of her life making people feel more beautiful. At Salon Eclipse by the Sea, her services run the gamut from basic wet and dry cuts to color correction and chemical straightening. But hair isn't the only feature that can benefit from her touch; Lisa is also certified in body wraps and airbrush tanning.

The multicultural staff can speak and recite slam poetry in an assortment of languages including Hindi, Spanish, Italian, and Tagalog.

The staff can also improve the appearance of skin with microdermabrasion, facials, and chemical peels.
