Lakewood Ranch Plastic Surgery's experienced team of aestheticians rejuvenates visages by softening skin spots and diminishing the effects of aging. The HydraFacial procedure uses a specialized spiral tool to cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize tired faces, leaving human emoticons beaming brighter than a warehouse rave attended by lightning bugs. The technicians carefully consider each patient's skin type and epidermal flaws before concocting a custom serum, which is then deposited into the deep layers of skin, providing nutrients and hydration. Each gentle treatment reduces acne-spawning oil, smooths fine lines, and provides antioxidant protection against ravening hordes of roving free radicals, while providing less discomfort than being plunked by a softly thrown marshmallow.
Though most vintners have made their wines from grapes, the Shook family turned their focus to other fruits. Starting in 1991, they began fermenting batches of juice from mangoes, red raspberries, limes, and oranges. In 1997, they opened their 14,000 square foot winery shaded by three large oak trees ?where licensed winemakers and distributors ferment and bottle 42 varieties of exotic wines stamped with the Sunshine Tree, the Florida Department of Citrus's mark of quality. Their eclectic selection encompasses citrus, tropical-fruit, berry, stone-fruit, and vegetable wines, each made entirely from the juice indicated on the label. The winery also makes and distributes wine-smoothie mixes and wine pouches, sherries, ports, and champagnes.
