Anna Powell
Licensed Medical Aesthetician

Anna excels in non-invasive treatment of skin conditions such as age management, uneven tone texture, and pigment, rosacea, and acne.  She developed a passion for the industry through her own struggles with acne as a teen and a young adult training as an EMT in the Army Reserves. As is common among many acne sufferers, she tried various over-the-counter products and prescription medication without much success. Anna eventually met an aesthetician who treated her as a person and not just a patient with acne and she got better! Through this experience, she was inspired to become an aesthetician.

Anna is a graduate of the Advanced Medical Aesthetic’s program at Florida College of Natural Health.

Understanding that education is most important, she was thrilled when she was invited to teach at her Alma Mater in 2008, and accepted the position as a medical aesthetics instructor. Anna has continued to evolve as an educator by attending enriching leadership training as well as training to become an educator for a prestigious international cosmeceutical company.  Anna also volunteers her time and knowledge of skincare to raise money for a nonprofit medical group that provides free medical aid to underprivileged people around the world.

She has trained thousands of other professionals and has been called the “holy grail of aestheticians” by her peers -Cristine Bukard.

Personally, Anna is a nature lover with a passion for adventure and healing. Her hobbies include yoga, cooking, nature walks, biking, swimming, painting, and spending time with friends. Anna would love to meet you and treat you so call 321-241-1160 or send us a message through our website!

Denise Betancourt
Licensed Medical Aesthetician

Denise Betancourt is here to serve you and help you achieve your best skin! Denise started her professional journey in Los Angeles, California. She relocated to Florida to be near family and to pursue her passion of aesthetics. Makeup was Denise’s pastime but after becoming a wife and mom to three boys, Denise had to minimize her makeup routine.

Denise holds a Florida aesthetician license and specializes in Keravive treatments of the scalp and Hydrafacial treatments of the face, chemical peels, customized dermaplane facials, pre & post laser care, and the latest technology in microneedling. Denise takes pride in her continued education on medical skin care lines and hand picks a home regimen that delivers results. Additionally, Denise works alongside Dr. Saluja in injectable clinic as a patient educator. Denise is focused on connecting with her patients and is committed to a long term rejuvenation plan to keep them looking and feeling like their best self.
