At San Diego Vascular Center, a team of specialists led by board-certified vascular surgeons presides over med-spa treatments focused exclusively on spider and varicose veins. Sclerotherapy’s fine needles inject a deactivating solution into the vein, while EVLT uses lasers to do the same work. Each of these treatments is less invasive and painful than surgery, and results in less downtime, ensuring that patients can soon resume their daily routine of walking backward on a merry-go-round for hours.
Led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Amir Moradi, Moradi M.D.’s staff tends to cosmetic issues with noninvasive services, surgical treatments, and everything in between. The doctors help their clients settle on a plan suitable for their lifestyles and aesthetic goals before they undergo series of treatments, which can include laser hair removal, injections, rhinoplasty, and chemical peels from experienced providers.
After devoting 20 years of his life to education, scientific research, and teaching, Highly Artistic Surgery's Dr. Chi Ha has the training and experience to perform surgical and nonsurgical enhancements that keep bodies looking both healthy and natural. The board-certified general surgeon is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, and is also a board-eligible facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. Dr. Ha has served as a clinical instructor in head and neck surgery at Stanford University, and completed a facial plastic and reconstructive surgery fellowship with world-renowned plastic surgeon Dr. E. Gaylon McCollough.
Infused with peaceful pastel blues, Dr. Ha's state-of-the-art facilities include two exam rooms, an operating suite certified by The American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF), and a nurse-monitored recovery room. The office also features a photo room where patients can take before-and-after shots or create flipbooks of themselves doing jumping jacks.
A board-certified plastic surgeon oversees the beautifying procedures at OasisMD, from cosmetic tucks and lifts to laser treatments and high-tech spa services. Beam-based services include blemish-banishing photofacials, acne clearing, and laser hair removal that erases unwanted strands from virtually any body part. Facial fillers such as Botox or Dysport help fill in fine lines and wrinkles, while Latisse treatments encourage personal growth in stubbornly immature eyelashes.
Under the auspices of board-certified dermatologist and dermatopathologist Dr. Heidi Gilchrist, the staff members at Gilchrist Aesthetic and Medical Dermatology help clients maintain vibrant, healthy skin. They practice a blend of conventional Western medicine and holistic approaches, focusing on prevention to ensure skin maladies don't go untreated. When new patients visit the clinic, they undergo diagnostic evaluations of everything from genetics and hereditary issues to diet and lifestyle, helping Dr. Gilchrist develop a custom-tailored skincare regimen for them. The clinic's other services run from soothing, cosmetic facials to medical necessities, such as testing for skin cancer, infections, and allergies.
Under the expert guidance of specially trained physicians, staffers harness the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water-slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time.
