About The Clinic
Nancy Dowe, Owner & MedSpa Director
RN, BSN, Licensed Esthetician
“You Close Your Eyes…You are being gently pulled away. You have forgotten which direction you began and where you are heading. As you flow effortlessly through this intangible atmosphere, the aroma of flowers and fruits drift in the breeze and your thoughts clear. The world recedes … At this point, your body has achieved a state of grace.”
Nancy Dowe, RN, BSN, Licensed Skin Care Specialist has dedicated her entire career life to the healthcare industry. Nancy currently has 30+ years experience as a Registered Nurse and a history of skin care expertise. Nancy goes to great lengths to educate each client she encounters when they are seeking quality information. While focusing on helping each customer establish a specific routine to protect and improve their own skin’s health, she also conquers taking them to a realm of relaxation seldom experienced during a “basic facial”. Nancy continues to feed her knowledge base by attending educational seminars not only for her nursing prowess, but also for the most recent developments in the skin care industry.
After many long hours of study and hands-on experience, Nancy learned the skill of Derma-Planing. She was taught by Dr. J. George Smith and his staff whose expertise has been in press such as Harper’s Bizarre. Dr. Smith is a renowned plastic surgeon in the state of Mississippi and specializes in cosmetic facial procedures only. In the year 2004, Nancy added her own line of cosmetics after months of research and development with a Texas based cosmetics company. These excellent products are dubbed Nancy Dowe Signature Cosmesceuticals. The year 2005 brought many new experiences and additions to the list of services. After a visit to Hong Kong and mainland China in March, Nancy brought back the skills and equipment for administering state-of-the-art LED Light therapy (Photo-Rejuvenation) and Ultrasound therapy. Both of these additions aid in combating signs of aging and problem skin issues.
The owner of her own small business since 1999, Nancy has won Manatee Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year awards, Longboat Key Chamber of Commerce awards. She attends multiple networking events/groups and business oriented classes as it relates to operating a successful business. Due to minimal overhead and proper management, she has been able to keep the same pricing on her menu of services since the year 2002.
In 2012 Nancy trained extensively with a pre-eminent cosmetic/reconstructive surgery physician and acquired specialty certification for neuro-modulator injectables and fillers to advance her clinical and cosmetic skill set. After an alliance with Dr. John Head, a local physician, Nancy continued to help make men and women regain and maintain a more youthful appearance. The latest Medical Director governing the injectables is Dr. Michele LeMay. In association with Dr. Lemay since 2018, Nancy is able to administer additional exclusive medical skin care treatments.
Her nursing background and nurturing nature lends itself to being known throughout surrounding communities as “the esthetician that gives a facial like no other”. Her special touch and knowledge have fostered the Signature Five Star Facial which far exceeds what most people expect when scheduling themselves for a special treat or upon receiving this facial as a gift. Each person leaves their visit with Nancy stating, “That’s much more than a facial.”
