ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (June 22, 2016)— For plastic surgeon Christian Drehsen, M.D., his thriving business is about to get even busier with the addition of a roughly 1,600-square-foot, $1 million MedSpa, currently under construction at 240 1st Avenue South in downtown St. Petersburg.
The MedSpa will take up the first floor of Drehsen’s 15,000-square-foot four-story office building, which he purchased in 2010. It will offer services such as CoolSculpting, cellulite reduction, laser procedures, injectables, lip augmentation, skin therapy and visia skin analysis.
These services are currently available at Dr. Drehsen’s practice, Clinique of Plastic Surgery, located on the second floor. However, creating a dedicated space for these minimally invasive procedures will allow him to see more patients and also add a retail component that will attract pedestrians in the downtown area.
“Our goal is to become a medical destination that attracts patients from all over the world by offering an assortment of services and procedures all under one roof,” said Dr. Drehsen, Medical Director of Clinique of Plastic Surgery. “We currently see around 150 patients per week and expect that number to drastically increase once the renovations are complete.”
In addition to the MedSpa, Drehsen is also building a large conference room on the third floor to host seminars and teach other surgeons how to perform his signature service, the RefresherLiftSM. Within the next year, he will also transform the fourth floor to add more offices and recovery rooms for patients.
“The RefresherLift is a unique facial rejuvenation procedure that refreshes the patient’s expression without the tight, pulled-back look of traditional face lifts,” said Dr. Drehsen. “This is something that patients request when undergoing facial plastic surgery, but few plastic surgeons know how to achieve.”
The investment that Dr. Drehsen is making in his practice is in large part due to the success of the RefresherLift, which is one of his most popular procedures. This year alone, he has performed more than 100 RefresherLifts and expects that number to increase as patients continue to seek more natural-looking cosmetic revisions.
The MedSpa is expected to open this summer and will be selling ZO® Skin Health products, created by board-certified Dermatologist Dr. Zein Obagi.
