Tamara Venditti, L.E., C.P.M.
Specializing in clinical skin care treatments, Tamara has practiced as a licensed esthetician for over 17 years in Manatee County. She received her certification in Advanced Para-medical Esthetics from the Fashion Focus Academy of Facial & Skincare Technology. A few years later, she completed additional training through You’Nique in Clinical Micro-pigmentation techniques.
Tamara has established an impressive permanent make-up practice, and a tri-county reputation as one of the premier areola tattoo artists for breast cancer reconstruction patients in Manatee, Pinellas and Hillsborough. In addition, she has successfully completed product knowledge certification classes in the medical-based product lines SkinMedica TM and ZO Zein Obagi, M.D. TM.
Unlike typical “spa” treatments, Tamara has a clinical approach designed to not only help her patients look their best, but actually “correct” damaged skin, “revitalize” problem skin and “reverse” the signs of aging. Her process is customized using the latest technology and pharmaceutical-grade product lines. She begins with an initial skin analysis, followed by a treatment customized to the patient’s needs, and ending with patient education regarding appropriate home care, and the importance of daily sunscreen application.
On a personal level, Tamara believes that “health and beauty come from the inside out.” She placed 2nd Runner-up in the Mrs. Florida 1982 pageant and is more recently an avid fitness competitor in CrossFit TM and Body Building, placing 1st in the Ms. Southern USA Fitness Competition, October 2009.
Her personal philosophy:
“You only have one skin, and one body, so protect and care for it, because it has to last a lifetime.”
