tristan baron, aprn

founder + advanced cosmetic injector

Tristan is the founder and lead injector at Elevate. She received her Bachelors in Health Science from University of Florida, and Bachelors and Masters of Science in Nursing (BSN/MSN) from University of Tampa. Tristan’s passion for aesthetics started while working as a RN for a local plastic surgeon, where she saw the profound improvement in confidence and mental health state cosmetic surgery and procedures had on patients. She instantly became passionate about helping people feel their best by looking their best.


When evaluating her patients’ aging and cosmetic concerns, she takes a holistic approach and considers their entire face in the picture. She aims to provide a natural elevated result that restores the youth and glow the patient once had. By assessing and treating all areas of the face, versus just the one “problem” area, Tristan creates balance and a harmonized beautiful appearance that truly wows.

lindsay kenyon

medical aesthetician

Lindsay attended the University of Florida and later Chic Image Academy, where she gained her aesthetician license. Lindsay was inspired to pursue a career in aesthetics after struggling with her own skin issues that can come along with becoming a new mom. She loves helping people feel better about themselves, providing support and healing for anyone going through their own skin concerns. She believes there is something truly healing about the human touch, and what better way to be healed each month than to walk out with a glowing complexion?!

Whether a client has specific skin issues or simply wants to maintain a glow, Lindsay believes that every complexion can benefit from monthly maintenance. Lindsay approaches each client differently with the mindset that there is truly no “one size fits all” or even “one size fits most.” She starts each facial with a client consultation to really get to know their skin and their concerns. From that point, she maps out a plan. Whether it’s monthly signature facials, peels, microneedling, Hydrafacials, extractions, or acne boot camp —  she figures out a plan that is usually a mix of many of the different modalities in order to achieve the best results!
