About Sarah Perkins, PA-C, M.S
Hi! My name is Sarah. I am a resident of Fleming Island and I am thrilled to join the Pura Vida team! Here’s why. Although I have been a licensed healthcare provider for more than 20 years with experience in many different specialties, I have a real love for aesthetic medicine. I find it incredibly fulfilling to help transform others into a more confident version of themselves. Having a strong understanding of anatomy and skin chemistry and a naturally artistic eye, I am able to enhance the facial appearance with dermal fillers and neurotoxins while maintaining a natural look. I also enjoy improving the health and appearance of the skin using cosmetic tools such as lasers, IPL and Vivace RF Microneedling. Whether you want to reduce the signs of aging, correct deformities or asymmetries, or you just want to enhance the things you like most about yourself, I really enjoy taking that journey with you.
I graduated with a Master of Science from Baylor College of Medicine’s Physician Assistant program in 1995. I am certified through the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants and I am an active member of American Academy of Physician Assistants and Florida Academy of Physician Assistants.
I believe in giving back to my community whenever I can. On the days I am not working at Pura Vida, I work for the Way Free Medical Clinic in Green Cove Springs providing chronic and acute care for the Clay County indigent population. I am also a volunteer for Operation Walk where I provide post- operative and discharge care to recipients of no-cost joint replacement surgeries. Being a mom and a former college soccer player, fitness is still a big part of my life today. I enjoy running, tennis, Pilates, and biking with my daughter’s very energetic dog.

"We are so lucky to have a Spa of this caliber here in Fleming Island, and any out of town visitors would definitely not be disappointed by driving to this area to experience their beautiful clean amenities for any spa treatments or cosmetic solutions. The facial experience with Katie has always been so pleasing, and having to also get IPL treatments with Sarah, I can say that she is so professional, friendly, and caring through all of the sessions I have had to this day. The owner Julie and the assistant Hannah are always ready to help and their communication with me, the client, has always been excellent. Booking a spa day at this location would be the most relaxing day you have ever had; the music, the staff, the decor - all of it make for an amazing experience for your body and mind :) Thank you Pura Vida Body and Mind Spa"
"After discovering Pure Vida on Facebook and following them for awhile my curiosity was peaked when I read about the PICO Laser treatment. I messaged them via Facebook and was immediately able to book a consultation which was very convenient. Today I had my consult and I was indeed an ideal candidate for this laser treatment. Sarah performed the treatment and was very professional and thorough. I can’t wait for my next appt! I’m so excited to finally be rid of my age spots! And the treatment was not uncomfortable at all - I highly recommend it! I met the owner as I was checking out and shared with her how I appreciated being able to text with her leading up to my appointment - I felt a connection there before I even set foot in the door."
"Sarah was amazing. I needed botox and she knew exactly where to inject and 5 days later I look amazing, she took the time to consult with me and I have been to Several med spas in our area and have not had the quality and professionalism as this spa has to offer. A bonus is the spa is amazing, so peacefully and tastefully done and the staff goes out of their way to make sure you have an exceptional experience! I can’t wait to go back!! Thank you!!!"
