Quality Skin Care Services Offered by Trained, Certified Medical Team

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (December 9, 2008) – Warm, cozy lighting and wood-toned floors are the first to greet visitors. But the new BayCare MedSpa is more than a soothing spa experience. BayCare MedSpa offers quality skin care procedures provided by a medical team, including a board certified physician, trained in safe skin care.

“We live in the sunshine state and more than ever people are interested in taking good care of their skin and correcting sun damage. At BayCare MedSpa we offer the community a full spa experience with the medical expertise that they want and deserve,” said Donna St. Louis, vice president BayCare ambulatory services.

  • Microdermabrasion – a procedure combining crystals to remove dead skin cells
  • Laser services for removal of hair, vascular or pigmented lesions, acne, fractional skin resurfacing
  • Botox injections
  • Facials
  • Massage therapy
  • Make-up consultations

BayCare MedSpa opened to the community August 26, 2008. The BayCare MedSpa team includes an advanced registered nurse practitioner (ARNP), a massage therapist and an aesthetician. The team is led by medical director and board certified plastic surgeon Jeremy Benedetti, M.D.

“As a trained, board certified surgeon, I’m dedicated to providing safe, high quality skin care services and patients can feel confident knowing that MedSpa is backed by the BayCare commitment to superior health care,” said Dr. Benedetti, medical director BayCare MedSpa.

Dr. Benedetti has a distinguished medical background. Prior to his arrival at BayCare MedSpa, Dr. Benedetti served as Chief Resident General Surgery at the University of California, Davis Medical Center in Sacramento.
