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.
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.

With a team that specializes in a number of fields, the spa addresses a sweeping spectrum of services to facilitate such pampered meditation.

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.
