Meet Heather Merlo APRN, FNP-C

Tampa Bays number 1 women’s wellness provider and the Haute-Beauty expert for Tampa. A distinguished and board-certified family nurse practitioner, Merlo has devoted over a decade and a half to the demanding realms of intensive care and emergency medicine at Tampa General Hospital, a prestigious level 1 trauma center in Tampa, Florida. Her remarkable journey took a transformative turn in 2021, when, even while facing the unprecedented challenges of the pandemic and at the remarkable stage of seven months into her pregnancy, Merlo embarked on a remarkable shift from the corporate world to the realm of women entrepreneurship.

Fueled by a profound desire to harmonize the roles of motherhood and female entrepreneurship, bolstering women’s confidence and advocating for regenerative medicine, particularly in the pandemic’s wake, the visionary entity known as Sei Tu Bella Aesthetics came into existence. With unwavering determination and a singular focus, Merlo brought her dreams to fruition, venturing into the captivating realm of aesthetic medicine, where she found her passion and a profound commitment to empowering women through a dedicated emphasis on women’s wellness services.

Before stepping into her role as an independent practitioner, Merlo pursued specialized training in medical aesthetics at AMET, alongside luminaries in the field such as Merz Pharmaceuticals, Galderma, Allergan, Crown Aesthetics, Aesthetic Management Partners, Revive, SaltMed, and Inmode. Her vast expertise spans a spectrum of advanced specialties, including women’s wellness, vaginal rejuvenation, laser services, RF microneedling with Morpheus 8 platforms, Mint PDO threads for non-surgical facelifts, clinical expert level for ZO Skin Health medical grade skincare, EXO|E stem cells and Sculptra regenerative medicine, intimacy wellness, hair restoration, and bio stimulatory procedures with Radiesse for anti-aging and rejuvenation.

Notably, Merlo’s international reach extends as she assumes the role of a trainer for Inmode, the esteemed manufacturer of the world-renowned RF micro-needling treatment, Morpheus. With support from influential figures such as Eva Longoria and Kim Kardashian, who attributes her svelte physique to the transformative Morpheus treatment, it has unquestionably become the gold standard and a highly sought-after procedure within the industry. Merlo’s dedication takes her across the United States, where she imparts her knowledge to MedSpa practice owners, fostering a culture of education, safety, and comfort for all clients.

In a monumental milestone, Sei Tu Bella Aesthetics stands as Florida’s inaugural Nurse Practitioner-owned MedSpa to feature the groundbreaking Empower RF platform by Inmode, earning its status as Lutz’s premier women’s wellness institute. Merlo’s pursuit of excellence has led her to train under the guidance of Dr. Henry Ramirez, MD, OB/GYN, a pioneering inventor and opinion leader in the Empower RF Platform, and collaborate with distinguished figures like Dr. Tracy Blusewicz, MD, FACOG OB/GYN, and internationally acclaimed Urogynecologist and Pelvic Floor Surgeon Dr. Mickey Karram, MD. In collaboration, Merlo delivers cutting-edge skills and treatment therapies to their discerning clientele.

Maintaining her position as a prominent medical aesthetics provider, Merlo remains committed to constant growth. She regularly attends international training seminars and advanced courses to stay at the forefront of advanced injection techniques, safety standards, and industry trends. Merlo’s unwavering dedication to marrying artistry with medical aesthetics underscores her unwavering commitment to empowering her clients through education.

With a rich Italian heritage, Ms. Merlo aspired to christen her enterprise with a name that exuded sophistication that celebrated her Italian roots. During her quest, she unearthed the Italian phrase “Sei Tu Bella,” which, translated precisely, conveys the question “Are you beautiful?” This discovery struck a resonant chord. At Sei Tu Bella, should you ever find yourself questioning your own beauty, rest assured it is our solemn duty to ensure you feel nothing less than truly exquisite.

In addition to her professional pursuits, Merlo holds a deep appreciation for her leisure moments, which she dedicates to forging lasting memories with her family. Alongside her devoted husband and five children, she passionately supports her two promising sons in their pursuit of professional athleticism through travel baseball. Simultaneously, she cherishes the joy of nurturing her three young daughters and embarks on ventures that take her across the open seas and foreign horizons. Her heart finds a special place in the exploration of her husband’s homeland, Mendoza, Argentina, where she immerses herself in the richness of familial connections while savoring the exquisite pleasures of world-renowned award-winning wines and gourmet cuisine.
