JT: When I think of the atmosphere that you have created for women to honor, celebrate and highlight their natural beauty, I really consider U South Tampa to be a place that fosters self-love. From medical grade facials and state-of-the-art laser treatments to the industry’s best skincare products, injectables and cosmetics, you have created a space that offers a full aesthetic experience. What was your vision and how is that evolving?
LK: I envisioned a place that felt like home, a place where when you entered, your anxieties diminished (or at least decreased). I love how people love to just stop by and say “hello” because they enjoy the ambiance and vibes. I wish I had more space to have a champagne bar in the back! It has evolved just as I imagined, a home away from home for me and my patients!
JT: What can a new client, without any prior medical skincare experience, expect when she visits U South Tampa for the first time?
LK: A newbie should expect guidance and education on the options of what she/he could choose to achieve their aging and skincare goals. What most patients appreciate is our relaxed and non-rushed vibe and genuine advice. We want them to leave feeling like the decision they are making is the right one for them.
JT: From my experience, I know that you develop long-lasting partnerships with your guests based on your honest dedication to their goals and your commitment to ongoing education and new trainings for yourself. What else would you like potential clients to know about you as “Tampa’s most-loved injector?”
LK: Yes, I have many patients that have been coming to me for over 15 years. They know how much I care about each and every one of them. I travel all over the world (well, pre-Covid!) learning and picking up new toys for them. I am determined to bring them the best!
JT: February is the perfect month for women to receive gifts of beauty or practice a little self-love. Are you offering any monthly specials that local Valentines can take note of (or women can circle in this article)?
LK: Anyone that mentions this article will receive 15% off any regular priced skincare product or procedure during February and March 2021!
JT: What do you love to do best in Tampa with your family?
LK: I love heading to St. Pete beach with my family when we have weekends free. Unfortunately, that is few and far between, so I spend lots of time watching my boys play baseball, football and soccer all [over] the Bay area. I know 20 years from now, it will be one of the things I miss the most!
