Why Lumen?

Skin health comes first, beauty second!

Helping your skin look its best is important, but so is screening you for skin cancer! That is why our association with Suncoast Dermatology and their team of professionals is so important. We treat skin because we know skin and we love helping you look your best!

We make sure to listen!

During your consultation, one of our providers will help you identify your skin care concerns and prioritize them based on your goals, lifestyle and budget. There are no “one size fits all” recommendations.

Our patients are “fully informed”!

That means we fully disclose other aesthetic options – not just the options that we have available at Lumen. All products and services offered at Lumen are evidence-based and have a proven track record of successful outcomes. In the aesthetics industry, there are unfortunately lots of claims made that have little to no clinical research to support them.


The devices we use are all brand new from the factory and were hand selected by our Medical Director for their safety profile and effectiveness. All of our products are pure, contaminant free and obtained directly from the manufacturer – not from less expensive and potentially dangerous third party suppliers from Canada, Mexico, China, etc.

Our staff

Perhaps, the most important consideration! All of the providers at Lumen are physicians, physician extenders, or allied health professionals that are licensed/certified and highly qualified to help achieve the results you expect. None of the staff is incentivized through commission on sales. Treatment recommendations are made for your benefit not our wallets! Meet Our Staff Here

Our Services


Most people are surprised to learn that the word laser is actually an acronym that stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation which describes in technical jargon precisely how lasers actually work.

Fotona lasers have been the “gold standard” in Europe for decades. Fotona’s cutting edge technology can be used to resurface and tighten the skin. Brown spots and wrinkles caused by photodamage can be reduced while collagen is stimulated. The results are a healthier, more radiant complexion. In addition to a full array of facial rejuvenation treatments, this laser can treat onychomycosis (nail fungus), spider veins, scarring, redness from rosacea or broken capillaries and unwanted hair. Unwanted hair can be removed quickly and painlessly on all skin types.

ELOS plus™

The “lunch time laser” offers non-invasive treatments with little to no recovery including IPL (intense pulsed light), sublative  radio frequency to improve acne scarring, pore size, wrinkles and uneven skin tone. This laser is also used for deep dermal skin tightening. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately.

The CoolSculpting procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle.



SmartLipo™ is a laser body sculpting procedure with less downtime and side effects than traditional liposuction. This innovative and minimally invasive procedure can be performed in the office under local anesthesia. It simultaneously destroys fat cells and tightens skin. Smartlipo™ can be used to treat most areas of the body; abdomen, “love handles”, inner thighs, “saddlebags”, “bra bulge”, “double chin”, upper arms and lower buttocks.

Eyelid rejuvenation (blepharoplasty)

Excess skin, droopiness and puffiness in the upper and lower eyelids can be removed for a more rested and youthful appearance. This procedure can be performed in the office under local anesthesia. For complete transformation, an eyebrow lift may be recommended.

Neuromodulators (Botox® Cosmetic or Dysport®)

Prescription medications that are injected into muscles and used to temporarily soften the look of moderate to severe frown lines in adults. The effects last between 3-4 months.

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Injectable gel that provides immediate results. Treatment areas can include smile lines, marionette lines, vertical lip lines, lips and cheeks. An increase in facial volume and reduction in wrinkle depth can last up to two years with optimal treatment, depending on the product that is injected.

Muscle Relaxers/Neuromodulators

Muscle relaxers are known as Injectable neuromodulators. There are three main types/brands of neuromodulators used in the United States for aesthetic purposes. All are purified proteins that are injected directly into the muscle and cause that muscle to relax for a prolonged period of time. BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxin A), XEOMIN® (incobotulinumtoxin A) and DYSPORT® (anobotulinumtoxin A). These proteins work by blocking the chemical signals that create nerve impulses to the muscle.

Sculptra® Aesthetic

The first facial injectable that can give you subtle, long-lasting results over time. Sculptra® Aesthetic stimulates collagen production and provides a natural-looking appearance. A full treatment with Sculptra Aesthetic (an average of two to three injection sessions over a few months) can last more than two years.

Chemical Peels

We offer several different types of peels. Peels can make skin feel softer, smoother and tighter.  They can improve skin tone, texture, and radiance.  Chemical peels can help diminish fine lines and wrinkles while reducing brown spots.

Advanced Skin Care

from Obagi®, Skin Ceuticals ®, Colorescience®, Elizabeth Arden PRO Triple Protection ®, Badger Sunscreen®, and Latisse.®

Brown Spot Removal

“Wisdom spots” and “liver spots” are common terms used to describe mottled darkening of the skin that occurs from chronic sun exposure. Each person may have different combinations of changes that can require treatment.


Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal uses light emitted from a laser source to stop hair growth. Because of the effectiveness of this procedure, the popularity of laser hair reduction continues to climb steadily, especially in warm climates like Tampa Bay.

The CoolSculpting procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle.

Freeze away fat? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

You can reshape your body! We will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.

It’s easy to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat. After we select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During your procedure, you may choose to read, check email, or even take a nap.

The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately.

You will like what you see. In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.

Are you ready to love every view of you? The sooner you set up your consultation, the sooner you’ll see results in the mirror—long-term results in those areas that have resisted all efforts through diet and exercise. Contact us today to find out if the CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is right for you.

Results and patient experience may vary.

I am so pleased to share that I had laser treatment on the back of my hand to remove some unattractive dark age spots. I thought I would need at least three treatments, but two weeks after only one treatment, the ugly spots, that hunted me since I was on my mid-forties, disappeared. I am utterly satisfied with the results and highly recommend this painless, quick and effective treatment for anyone who is bothered by these spots.
