Tess Gates, owner of and nurse practitioner injector at TRU Aesthetics, hopes to create personal relationships with her clients by building trust.

Tess Gates, owner of and nurse practitioner injector at TRU Aesthetics, believes in inspiring confidence. That priority, combined with her 17 years of experience in health care, prompted her to open her med spa office in April.

“I recognized there was a need for an aesthetics practice that put a priority on the patients’ needs rather than the needs of the business,” explained Gates. “I aspired to establish a business where my top priority was honesty and integrity and really create a space where patients can feel comfortable sharing insecurities and vulnerabilities.”

Meeting these patients’ needs, Gates said, should be done without pressure or urgency to spend money on unnecessary treatments.

TRU Aesthetics is a niche practice focused on facial contouring, antiaging, skin rejuvenation and wellness.

“I take a personal approach to every patient I have and genuinely care about helping people feel better,” said Gates.

Gates is currently offering free consultations to new patients and their choice of Botox or Dysport for just $10 per unit. Gates’ priority is to create personal relationships with her patients, gaining trust and becoming their “go-to, long-term provider for everything related to antiaging, skin health and wellness.”

The Brandon native serves around 100 patients a month. With almost two decades in health care, dual certifications and experience working for numerous med spas, Gates has an edge and the skills to help all patients.

“I believe confidence is beautiful, and helping people feel confident is my passion,” said Gates.

TRU Aesthetics is located at 1218 Millennium Pkwy. off Pauls Drive. To book an appointment, visit TRU Aesthetics’ website at https://mytruaesthetics.com/ or contact 813-696-1710.
