Image Centre's treatment menu might seem overwhelming if it wasn't for the technicians, stylists, aestheticians, and surgeons on hand to walk clients through their options. For quick beauty touchups, they may recommend a Shellac manicure or an airbrush spray tan. A more involved appointment might include a microdermabrasion facial combined with a cherry clarifying peel, or it might consist of a Brazilian blowout and a karaoke performance of the album "American Pie" and Other Eight-Minute Songs. Most serious of all would be the center's cosmetic-surgery options, including eye-lifts and liposuction, performed at a separate surgery center. To address their long-term health concerns, clients can also explore the center's weight-loss plans, which rely heavily on B12 and other vitamin injections in an effort to impact the body's metabolism.
Using clinical-grade technology and products to create eye-catching cosmetic changes, the medical aestheticians at Eepo Med Spa do their best to ensure that clients leave looking as rejuvenated and relaxed as they feel. They accomplish this by performing cutting-edge, nonsurgical procedures designed to generally improve the skin's tone and texture. In addition to using microdermabrasion wands and chemical peel formulas to conceal signs of blemishes, the staff also utilizes an arsenal of cosmetic laser systems. These systems can accomplish a wide variety of tasks, including everything from eliminating unwanted stubble and fading acne scars to collapsing spider veins and erasing cellulite. With the help of this technology, the medical professionals can help hide the blemishes that tend to affect aging skin.
The staff at Zerona San Diego, which takes a consultative approach with each client, wields noninvasive laser technology to melt away stubborn fat deposits and give dieters a boost in losing weight and keeping it off. Since Zerona doesn't involve incisions, anesthesia, or steamrollers, patients don't experience discomfort and can resume normal activities immediately following the procedure.
Overseeing both Dermacare centers in San Diego and Carlsbad, medical director Dr. Jeff Birchall has made it his mission to make patients "look as good as they feel." A board-certified family physician known for his calm, easygoing personality, Dr. Birchall channels more than two decades of experience in the medical industry to helm a team of aestheticians and registered nurses working tirelessly to correct skin problems and fight signs of aging with minimally invasive treatments, including Botox and Juvéderm. Dr. Birchall injects all dermal fillers himself, a treatment he claims is his favorite due to its "quick, dramatic results" and ability to turn dried figs back into plums. Other popular services include Fraxel laser treatments or IPL photofacials that harness cosmic light to correct skin tone and texture, and Cutera laser hair-removal treatments that safely and permanently reduce unwanted fuzz for clients of all skin types.
Though Era Skin Lounge's aestheticians are obsessed with skincare, they realize that a facial is probably not the most important thing their client has to do that day. This is why they use high-performance products in timesaving treatments designed to strike a balance between effectiveness and relaxation. Era's staff hunts down pore-clogging culprits with facials, chemical peels, and leads from an anonymous tip line, and they battle signs of age with retinol and medical-grade organic enzymes.
For Carlsbad Holistic Therapies owner Marion Mahoney, healing happens from the inside out. Her experience runs the gamut from yoga therapy to nutritional wellness, a well-rounded background that is the foundation for the treatments and informative sessions she offers at this holistic-minded spa.
Many of the massage treatments blend natural oils and aromatherapy with bodywork and reflexology that targets specific areas associated with chronic physical discomfort. Nutritional counseling teaches clients the physical benefits of eating whole foods and taking vitamin supplements, and a biomeridian assessment and energy balancing helps pinpoint imbalances associated with organ function or food sensitivities.
