Alexa Rodica, ARNP-C

Owner

Alexa is the founder and lead injector at AR Aesthetics. She received her bachelors in nursing from the University of South Florida and her Masters of Science in Nursing from South University. Her passion in aesthetics began with 6 years in the operating room, where she worked heavily in plastic surgery.

When starting her own practice in 2020, Alexa wanted to address the face as a whole instead of focusing on one area in particular. She began focusing on profile balancing and non-surgical rhinoplasties and was one of the first in Florida to begin this treatment.

When discussing patient concerns she wanted to create an individualized plan for each patient addressing skin changes to volume loss for a perfectly balanced and harmonized result.

Kennedy Kreamer

Medical Aesthetician

I have always had a passion for skin care and the beauty industry ever since I was a little girl – I used to set up a “spa” in my house where I would analyze my family’s faces and apply face masks for fun.

My mom taught me the importance of washing my face every morning & night and using good skin care. It stuck with me ever since and doing my skin care routine became something I looked forward to doing. I quickly became obsessed with anything aesthetics, especially skin care and knew it was my passion.

I graduated from Arizona State University and jumped right into aesthetican school to start my career. I love attending seminars and conferences to stay up to date with the latest in the industry.

Helping someone feel confident and beautiful in their own skin is the most important thing to me and it truly is the best feeling! Connecting with my clients and building trusting relationships means so much and is a huge part of why I love what I do.

I can’t wait to see your beautiful faces and help you feel confident in your skin!
