Demand globally for skincare specialists and spas is growing exponentially reflecting a desire by both women and men for a host of new treatments designed to reduce the effects of aging.
Mayssan Shuayb recognizes this and is the owner of the newly opened Shuayb Serenity Spa in Hernando County, Florida. A longtime healthcare administrator, Shuayb knows that skin specialists — or aestheticians — serve an important role in the beauty industry.
“Spas not only help improve the look and condition of a client’s skin, our aestheticians also give advice on maintaining that beautiful skin,” she said.
Shuayb is a well-known name in the county. Mayssan’s father is a highly respected physician. Husam Shuayb, MD is Board Certified in Gastroenterology and Internal Medicine and her brothers own and operate two dental surgeries — one on Mariner Boulevard, the other on Aerial Way in Spring Hill. The dental surgery located on Aerial Way is where Shuayb recently opened her med spa.
Shuayb explained that “people are always looking for ways to improve their appearance — it gives them confidence not only in themselves but also in the workplace and, because our treatments are performed under the auspices of a physician, it adds credibility in the eyes of my clients,” Shuayb said.
Shuayb’s Serenity Spa offers clients a range of services and products provided by her staff of experienced skin care professionals.
Those services include laser hair removal, laser Genesis, IP, photo facials, MD a skincare management package designed by Jan Marini, PRP; micro-needling; Botox; Juvederm; Restylane; as well as a host of other treatments.
She and her highly qualified staff help change people's lives by revitalizing problem skin, treating severe acne, laser hair removal and teaching clients makeup tips and techniques to conceal flaws or scars from injuries and burns.
“My aestheticians will work with a physician when it’s required as part of an overall treatment plan to help clients regain confidence in their overall appearance,” Shuayb said. “We care about our clients and want to make them look and feel good.” she said.
When you’re welcomed at Shuayb Serenity Spa, you’ll meet a medical aesthetician who will evaluate your skin, its condition and appearance. From there, it is determined which products or treatment will work best and work with the client to formulate a skin care routine.
A medical aesthetician will help manage the effects of various skin imperfections like acne or surgical scars. Common services include chemical peels, facial scrubs, laser treatment, botox injections, cosmetic fillers to reduce lines and wrinkles, and more. They will also work with clients help reduce the effects of aging on the skin and are fully trained to administer offer injectables like Botox or Dysport to remove wrinkles, as well as microdermabrasion, peels and dermal fillers that can plumpen lips and cheeks and soften deep facial creases.

Shuayb Serenity Spa offers a multitude of therapies like glycolic and retinol resurfacing treatments that will enhance your skin clarity and texture. Resurfacing acids will bring back a youthful glow to your skin after we gently remove dry and dull skin. The skin brightening procedure can reduce dark spots and other discolorations. Micro Needling can also smooth skin texture and help reduce the appearance of scars.
Using the state of the art Cutera Xeo® skin therapy, Shuayb professionals can make skin transformation a reality.It’s a therapy that renews and rejuvenates, giving your skin …and your confidence a lift.
Shuayb Serenity Spa can also rid us of annoying freckles and facial and leg veins and, most important of all, rid unwanted hair wherever it is on your body and for it never to reappear again.
Shuayb Serenity Spa offers laser hair removal. It works by concentrating a beam of light which damages the hair follicles enough to impede future growth. Lasers can remove hair from anywhere on the body for several months to years. Lasers work by selectively targeting dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Most clients experience permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions.
“Laser hair removal packages can be expensive as results differ from person to person, Shuayb said. “But my prices are extremely competitive and I am willing to work with my clients on a per session basis.”
Given that skin is our largest organ and the most visible, one, most of us would agree that taking care of it properly is important.
Over the years, it's also become routine for skin care specialists and spas to sell skin care products like cleansers and creams.
Shuayb’s spa is also an authorized Jan Marini retailer. Jan Marina’s advanced management system combines concentrated retinol, resurfacing agents, lightening technologies, and antioxidants to help our clients maintain their appearance.
“Jan Marini products are top of the line in skin care management,” said Shuayb.
“Her line constantly wins all the top beauty awards.”
“Working with people and helping them with their skincare is fulfilling,” Shuayb said. “Everyone wants to look the very best they can.”
"Seeing people's skin health improve with our guidance is very inspiring and rewarding," Shuayb said. "I care about people and there’s nothing more rewarding than seeing them happy with their appearance.
