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.
At Full Circle Wellness, skilled massage therapists knead away aches, and they offer a hot-towel aromatherapy treatment with each massage. The therapists see massage as both physically and mentally therapeutic, and aim to help clients let go of anxiety and find new reserves of energy and concentration.

Practice makes perfect. And Organic Touch Massage's Le'Tequia Spates, known as "Tiki," has had her fair share of practice, graduating from the Alpha School of Massage with more than 300 clinical massages under her belt. With that muscle memory guiding her, she renders massages in modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, and hot stone. She even uses special techniques to mitigate headaches, reversing the effects of listening to a bandsaw cut through a bandsaw.
