After practicing the art of body sculpting under renowned surgeons in Denver and Sarasota, Caroline Lomboy, D.O. gained her own acclaim by being the first doctor in the Tampa Bay area to marry SmartLipo liposuction with ultrasonic lipolysis. Using liposuction to whisk away stubborn deposits of fat and more detailed liposculpture to etch muscle definition, Dr. Lomboy helps her patients regain lost confidence levels and self esteem. She also preaches a message of good nutritional habits and sensible fitness regimens, as these surgical procedures must be partnered with a healthy lifestyle.
Keeping client satisfaction at the forefront of its mission, the Avalon Med Spa and Laser Center recently underwent a complete overhaul that included acquiring the award-winning G.M. Collin product line, as well as a new therapist, physician, and staff. A medical director and board certified-internist leads a team of professionals, including one member with certification in aesthetic medicine, and special training in medical informatics. The wide-reaching expertise of its staff enables Avalon Med Spa to deliver a varied menu of aesthetic services that includes everything from laser hair removal to teeth whitening, Botox, and body wraps.
Devoted to bettering the patient experience, the center also nestles clients into a relaxing environment replete with plush couches and a waiting lounge done up in warm, neutral tones. Hardwood floors lead clients back to a private treatment room, where the elegant décor relaxes with furnishings such as draped, olive-green curtains, frosted sconces, and a wall waterfall that trickles out droplets harvested from the fountain of youth.:m]]
As its name implies, Executive Physiques Spa and Fitness houses the best of both worlds: a fitness center where personal trainers devise custom, calorie-burning exercise routines, and a relaxing oasis where massage therapists and aestheticians tend to skin and strained muscles. The fitness center’s trainers and instructors regularly attend workshops to keep their skills sharp. Rather than use their strength to twist clients’ arms into signing contracts, they focus on developing the exciting workouts that anchor their drop-in fitness classes. The spa’s staff pick up where they leave off, soothing feet in ion baths and erasing fine lines with nonsurgical face-lifts.
