Dr. Kim Zipper, MD
I am a fellowship trained anti-aging physician and board certified in anesthesiology. I opened Fountain of You in 2007 with the goal to teach people how to live more and age less. Americans diagnosed with obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease are reaching epidemic proportions. For the most part, these diseases are preventable.
My focus at Fountain of You is to teach you how to prevent these diseases, slow the aging process and ensure you enjoy your later years. Americans are living longer but not necessarily better. We will continue to have medical advances that will prolong our lives well beyond 90 years. The problem is making sure we still feel good at that age. Being happy, healthy and active at 90 plus is possible.
If we don’t start preparing in our 40s and 50s, however, we may not be ready when the time comes. Aging is inevitable, but how we age is a choice. I can teach you life-long habits that will impact how you spend your “golden years.” Through diet modification, exercise, hormone replacement and nutritional supplements, everyone can change the way they age.
As patients start to feel better on the inside, many decide to explore aesthetic options. We also offer an extensive array of aesthetic services including Botox, fillers, laser skin resurfacing, radio frequency skin tightening, laser hair removal, laser vein sclerotherapy, IPL photofacials, medical grade peels, therapeutic facials and mineral makeup application. Let’s face it, if your going to be 90 and healthy, you may as well look good too!

As a stay at home mom for many years, I went back to work in 2009 when my friend Dr. Zipper asked for some part-time front desk help. Of course I jumped at the opportunity to work with my dear friend and her amazing staff.
I learn something new everyday at The Fountain of You and am happy to be a part of such a wonderful group dedicated to health and happiness. Besides, who wouldn’t want to work where patients come in feeling not so great and go home with huge smiles on their faces?
I am originally from Sweden, where I enjoyed working in the skin care field for many years. I live an anti-aging lifestyle, so when I joined the Fountain of You in 2012, I was pleased to become part of a team of healthcare professionals who share my views. I have personal experience with natural healing, as my educational background includes a certification for herbal medicine.
I love being a patient care coordinator for the Fountain of You, where I have the opportunity to assist each and every client reach their health and wellness goals. I am currently studying for my State of Florida medical aesthetician license.
I am also passionate about photography. I enjoy being the staff photographer for Fountain of You!

I always told Dr. Zipper that if she ever needed anyone in her office that I would love to have this opportunity. Luckily, almost 3 years ago this happened! Growing up in Ohio in the 80’s, the only cosmetic enhancement that I knew of had been a face lift. After graduating from Stetson University with a Marketing Degree and an Art Minor I eventually landed here in Melbourne. Art has always been my passion, so “making people beautiful” fits! It is so completely satisfying to see a patient transform to a more youthful self. Not only do we see the change on the outside, but their level of confidence also increases as they feel better about themselves. It always makes me smile.
I’ve been a Master stylist with a specialty in Color for over 20 years. During my years as a hairdresser, I noticed that many of my clients could improve their overall facial appearance by simply adding to their existing brows- I began searching for a technique to create the most natural looking eyebrows, saving them the time and effort required to “draw” them on daily. That’s when I discovered a relatively new technique called Microblading. During this procedure, I create semi- permanent hair like strokes that last anywhere from 12 to 36 months. If the eyes are the windows to the soul, I believe beautiful brows are the perfect frame for them.
