Brandon resident Lena Grant is well acquainted with Brandon Cataract Center and Eye Clinic. Although she is an extremely satisfied patient, the treatments she receives on the building’s second floor leave her feeling relaxed with improved skin tone and texture.

That’s because Brandon Cataract Center and Eye Clinic offers skincare services by licensed aesthetician Auyanna Gilbert. After her eye appointments, Grant indulges in Gilbert’s anti-aging facial.

“It’s convenient to be able to schedule my eye appointment and facial back to back,” said Grant. “It’s one more way I take care of myself and my skin has never looked better.”

Using her training and experience, Gilbert analyzes each client’s skin needs and offers an individualized treatment regimen. Most of her clients have one or more of four main skin concerns: anti-aging, redness or rosacea (sensitivity), hyperpigmentation and acne.

Brandon Eye Clinic’s signature skin care treatments can help diminish fine lines and wrinkles, create a smooth and glowing complexion, reduce the appearance of sun damage and melasma, improve skin texture, stimulate collagen production, reduce acne and minimize acne scarring.

Gilbert offers the full spa experience, including hot towels, aromatherapy, relaxing music, and a heated bed. “Even though I am in a medical office I provide the niceties you get in a spa,” said Gilbert. “You still receive the spa experience.”

She works exclusively with Rhonda Allison Skincare products, a professional line. “I am confident with this line because they offer a product that delivers spectacular results,” she said.

In addition to facials, Gilbert offers exfoliation services, hot stone back therapy, eyebrow tinting and waxing services.

The Spa is located at 403 Vonderburg Dr., Ste. 101 in Brandon. Office hours are Monday – Friday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. – 12 p.m.
