Anthony's Coal Fired PizzaKnown for its high energy atmosphere and simple menu, Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza uses 800-degree coal burning ovens to create a "well done" taste.

Lorraine Palisi, Esthetician-Owner

Rainedrop SkinWith 24 years of experience in the medical field and patient care, Lorraine Palisi found her passion in skincare.

At age twenty, she developed adult acne and tried traditional medications through the advice of dermatologists--nothing worked. Finally, a seed was planted when an esthetician educated her on skincare regimens that controlled her acne through regular routines of facials and professional products. Lorraine's amazing discovery drove Palisi to become a licensed esthetician through Bradenton's College of Natural Health while working at a surgery center.

Let Rainedrop change the skin you're in by addressing issues of acne, wrinkles, sun damage, and rosacea. Florida is the Sunshine State. This Sun causes skin damage. Mix in our own hormones, medications, and stress and we ensure that our skin ages each birthday right along with us. It's never too late to protect your skin and preserve what you have. Skincare regimens are easy to learn and professional facials make a difference.

Trust Lorraine Palisi. It is easy!
Rinse, lather, repeat.
Come see Lorraine at Rainedrop Skin. Your skin will love you for it.
