Originally board-certified in emergency medicine, she spent fifteen years in the emergency departments of St. Joseph’s Hospital and Bayfront Medical Center and was an Associate Professor for the University of South Florida College of Medicine.

In 2005, after two years of training with her dermatologist, she opened Skinspirations, a practice devoted exclusively to aesthetic and regenerative medicine. Dr. Elliott’s passion is using regenerative techniques to solve her patients’ problems and combining her medical knowledge with her research background to find innovative ways to maximize results.

By 2007, because of her reputation for achieving dramatic results, Dr. Elliott was chosen to be a national speaker and trainer for several aesthetic product companies including Allergan, (the makers of Botox and Juvederm), Suneva Medical (producers of Bellafill), and Cutera Aesthetic lasers. Her company, ExpertEsthetics, provides hands-on esthetic treatment training and has trained over 250 clinicians in both the U.S. and the Caribbean. You can view some of Dr. Elliott’s injection instruction videos on Youtube.

Originally from Chicago, Dr. Elliott received her MD from the University of Illinois College of Medicine and completed her emergency medicine residency at the Denver Health Medical Center. She graduated from the University of Illinois with degrees in biology and psychology, followed by two years in the physiologic psychology Ph.D. program at Indiana University before attending medical school.

Dr. Cynthia Elliott repairing an amputated finger in Irian JayaDr. Elliott can be more fun than it sounds. Her proudest moment was when she was voted by her junior high peers as “Class Clown”  and the most gratifying medical treatment she’s performed was repairing someone’s amputated finger in Western New Guinea with a Leatherman.

She lives in Clearwater Beach with her spousal equivalent, Rick, and 4 rescue cats, all of whom are neutered. For fun, she enjoys boating, diving, snow skiing, watching horror movies, preparing the next year’s Halloween props, and developing new products made from fungus. Seriously.
