Drawing from more than 25 years of experience working in the med-spa and cosmetic-surgery field, Kathleen Rocca harnesses her knowledge and skills as a clinical aesthetician at her own skincare and anti-aging haven: Eastlake Rejuvenation Center. Guests pass through a lushly landscaped patio area as they arrive for the noninvasive cosmetic treatments, including facials with red and blue LED light, body-contouring laser lipolysis sessions, or photofacials that use intense pulsed light to tighten lax skin loosened after one too many trips to the moon.
In addition to helping area residents look and feel better, Rocca stays involved with her community on a grander scale, sharing beauty advice on Fox 6 news and serving as the president of the?Bonita Business & Professional Association.
Lipolaser Mission Valley helps clients purge bodies of excess fat, revealing smooth curves and lean muscles. The clinic's new lipolaser machine performs in half the time of most machines. During 20-minute sessions, a medical professional places the apparatus in trouble spots around the waist and hips as a cold laser shrinks fat cells that sit millimeters below the skin. Then, people stand on the vibration platform to warm their muscles, increase circulation, and finally be able to move like a hummingbird. The targeted fat drains naturally through the lymphatic system, with the goal of removing inches from the waistline and hips.
At Dermatology Laser Center of San Diego, a team of physicians lends their medical expertise to aesthetic treatments, clarifying skin with lasers and cosmetic injectables. The teams employs a range of lasers, each with its own aesthetic application ? including hair and tattoo removal, skin resurfacing, spider vein treatment ? as well as medical-grade wrinkle-removers such as Botox, Restylane, and Juvederm.
At Sente Bella, beauty specialists help patients achieve their desired aesthetic with holistic and clinical therapies. Technicians diminish signs of aging with clinical injections and deploy lasers as emissaries of firmer skin and follicular death. Patients work with dieticians, acupuncturists, and massage therapists to balance their bodies, and watch 3-D modeling videos to envision surgical procedures that adjust their contours into beach-ready shapes or avant-garde compositions for museum display. Aromatherapy induces relaxation during traditional body treatments that polish every inch with scrubs, herbal tonics, and products from the organic, antioxidant-rich Eminence skincare line.

For owner and licensed medical aesthetician Jane Bulner, Refine Body & Skin Care is the culmination of a journey that began in her native land of Thailand. Her drive for skincare and aesthetics led her to graduate from Bellus Academy in Poway in 2002. She walked across the stage with suitcase in hand, flying from her graduation platform to San Diego, where she would continue training under Dr. Jonas LaForge of Meridian Medical. Her studies in Lapex 2000 BCS lipolaser treatments and other medical aesthetic services solidified her skills and confidence, leading her to open Refine Body & Skin Care. And today, alongside her partner-in-beauty, William Murphy, MD, Bulner takes care of body hair and other exterior issues with waxing treatments, facial services, and advanced laser systems.
