Business 1 ON 1 with Anne Bragg

Name: Anne Bragg

Business: Pure Skin + Body Advanced Spa Services, 3062A Vineville Ave., Macon, (478) 742-0174,

How long have you been open?: “We’ve been at this location about two years.” Bragg said she and her staff each have at least 15 years or more experience. Bragg’s business partner is Kristi Thigpen.

What’s your specialty?: “Laser tattoo removal, laser age and sunspot removal, full hair services including precision hair cuts and color correction. We do massage -- muscular massage, prenatal massage, sports massage and relaxation message. Our therapist is highly trained,” said Bragg. “We provide Botox (injections) from an M.D. and we also have laser nail fungus removal.”

Pure Skin’s services also include facial treatments.

What are your future plans?: “We plan on expanding in the very near future to double our size.” The expansion, Bragg said, would let Pure Skin provide space or “styling and medical suites” to independent spa service providers.

Bragg said the spa suite concept is a trend that “moves away from the boss-employee relationship. ... They can be their own boss,” she said.
