"Best money I ever spent. Dr. Elliot worked miracles as far as I am concerned with filler and Botox. I went on my 70th birthday feeling very poorly about my image. Every time I passed a mirror I wanted to die. It seemed I suddenly was down in the mouth, literally. The Doctor artfully filled in some strategic places around lips smoothing out those verticle lines and my puppet mouth crevices. Botox where Doctor felt I needed it , and BOOM, I feel I look years younger, 15 years I have been told by my husband, neighbor and best friend. Surely saved me from the knife, which is where I thought I needed to go. So Happy, I love Skinspirations. I honestly was not aware I would be able to achieve such improvement by filler and botox, remarkable."

Cynthia Elliott, MD, the owner of Skinspirations, has practiced in the Tampa Bay area since 1990. 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.
