The medical director of The Institute for Aesthetic Medicine believes a beautiful appearance can be attained through noninvasive, surgery-free techniques that leave patients rejuvenated with minimal downtime. His laser and radio-frequency treatments tighten skin and cosmetic injectables reduce facial wrinkles. Susie, the aesthetician on staff, performs similarly noninvasive skincare services, such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and ultrasonic pore cleansing.
English, Spanish, French, Hungarian, and Romanian—these are the languages that Dr. George Weiss has trained his mouth to shape. But his cultural aptitude isn't the only impressive mark on his resumé. Dr. Weiss—a bariatric physician—has also spent the last two decades helping patients reclaim their bodies through anti-aging and weight-management programs. These days, the doctor combines his knowledge of conventional and integrative medicine at Wellness and Longevity Medical Group of La Jolla, booting fine lines and deep-set wrinkles with Botox, Dysport, Radiesse, Juvéderm, Sculptra, and Restylane/Perlane solutions while helping patients shave off unwanted curves with custom hCG diet plans and nutritional coaching. Dr. Weiss even helps patients balance off-kilter hormones, which can cause people to have mood swings or get into a slap fight with a friend’s wedding cake. By using a holistic age-management approach that combines a healthy lifestyle with natural bioidentical hormones and aesthetics, Dr. Weiss can help patients regain a sense of vitality.
For the past 15 years, SK Clinic's Dr. Stephen Krant has received the same professional honor: La Jolla Light's Best Plastic Surgeon designation, determined by a reader vote. It's no surprise he's such a crowd pleaser. The Yale School of Medicine alumnus has performed thousands of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures, all of which include consultations that touch on important questions, such as, "What makes you happy?" and "How do you measure success?"
Aside from artful surgeries, SK Clinic's team offers beauty treatments, too. The med spa offerings run the gamut from laser hair removal and injectables such as Botox to spa facials to brow lifts, body contouring, massages and micro-needling.
At The Secret Clinic, vascular specialist Dr. Peter Mann and his team use advanced aesthetic procedures to meet all manner of beauty goals. Dr. Mann relies on noninvasive lasers for many of his treatments, and these beams are the “secret” to a rejuvenated appearance stated in the center’s name. An alternative to a surgical facelift, CO2 fraxel skin resurfacing erases signs of aging caused by sun exposure and celebrating birthdays once a month. But the clinic touts more than just technological know-how. Medical-grade facials draw from age-old aesthetic techniques to control acne breakouts, exfoliate dull cells, or create a healthy glow.
From their tranquil base of operations, Del Mar Aesthetic Clinic's professional skin-renewers delight dull facial facades with the non-invasive exfoliating treatment of Vibradermabrasion. Eschewing the abrasive crystals and harsh police interrogations of traditional microdermabrasion, Vibradermabrasion sweeps a gently vibrating paddle across the skin. The soft vibrations woo dead skin cells away from cluttered pores, helping to reduce pore size and soften fine lines, leaving complexions rejuvenated and glowing like an angel in love. To keep pores in tiptop shape, Del Mar Aesthetic Clinic stocks a variety of skincare products (not included with this Groupon), including Obagi Medical Products, Sanitas Skincare, and NuCèlle Mandelic Marine Complex.
"We are not about anti-aging; we are about aging gracefully and painlessly," says Dr. Arnold Kremer, the head of Del Mar Integrative Medicine. The osteopathic physician and his team offer a host of aesthetic and wellness services, including acupuncture treatments, bio-identical hormone-replacement therapy, life coaching, and dermal fillers. In many cases, the center employs advanced technology, as is the case with its fractional laser treatments, photofacials, and broadband-light therapy. The team also administers?platelet-rich-plasma injections, for both aesthetic and medical reasons: the PRP injections not only rejuvenate complexions, but can also treat sports injuries and osteoarthritis.
