Stephanie Wilbanks has been a paramedical esthetician for 17 years and brings her passion for skin care to work every day at the Emerald Coast Medical Spa in Navarre.
Her business recently expanded its square footage and service at its new location at the First National Bank and Trust building in the heart of Navarre. Emerald Coast Medical Spa is located just northwest of the Navarre Beach Causeway.
The expansion includes customized relaxing facials, massages, including couple massages, spray tans, permanent makeup and makeup applications.
Those services complement the medical services already offered at the spa, which include acne treatment, chemical peels, Botox, Dysport, Juvaderm, Restylane, Perlane, laser hair removal, laser treatments, fat killing laser, skin tightening laser, IPL and fractional laser.
Most of the chemical peels used in treatments are unique to Emerald Coast Medical Spa and were created by Wilbanks. The treatments are specifically designed to dramatically improve your overall appearance while remaining safe and non-invasive. Emerald Coast Medical Spa also partners with Kat House Salon, a full-service salon that offers hair services, eyelash extensions, manicures and pedicures.
Wilbanks loves to help people achieve their skin care goals, whether it’s dealing with acne or just the overall health of skin.
“I truly love helping people look and feel better about themselves,” Wilbanks said. “My motto is when you look better you feel better.”
