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.

Even before opening his own private practice, Dr. Jason Lupton was intensely familiar with the rigors of the medical profession. After attending Georgetown University's prestigious medical school, Lupton completed a one-year laser-surgery fellowship at the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery, making him one of the few fellowship-trained cosmetic dermatologists in southern California. His sterling reputation has led him to give lectures at the annual meetings of the American Academy of Dermatology and the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery and inside the minds of various schizophrenic celebrities. These days, his expertise is sought by publications such as Cosmopolitan, which he provides between medical and cosmetic dermatology services. In treatments such as laser hair removal, Botox, or sclerotherapy, Lupton wields high-end skincare products from brands such as Glo Minerals and SkinMedica.
It’s no surprise that Surface Esthetics has swept the Best Facial category on the San Diego A-List for five years in a row. Each and every medical-grade facial in this cozy (and medical-grade) spa begins with a lengthy, personalized consultation. The spa’s aestheticians pour over new client’s pores for a good 30 minutes before unleashing their arsenal of diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands and custom masks to combat acne, aging, and unfunny skin. They quell hormonal breakouts during pregnancy with specialized skincare regimes, and refresh and sooth male skin irritated by shaving. Aside from their award-winning facials, the Surface Esthetics staff shows off their artistic skills with eyebrow shaping, and swiftly waxes away fuzz from the face or bikini area.
Dr. Deborah H. Atkin and her team of experienced aestheticians work to turn back the clock on signs of aging and enhance their clients' natural beauty with a repertoire of advanced skincare services that rely on technological innovation and a keen aesthetic eye.

Beauty plans can involve anything from treating acne and rosacea with products from brands such as SkinMedica, to plumping away wrinkles and fine lines with minimally invasive dermal-filler injections. A fleet of technologically advanced devices allows the staff to provide laser-assisted services, including skin tightening, body sculpting, and photorejuvenation.
The Spa Gregorie team won Spa Finder?s Reader?s Choice award for Best Day Spa of 2011 for rejuvenating skin with Spa Gregorie's botanically enriched product line. Steps away from the spa's tranquil hair salon, Arcona formulas play a central role in the spa's 18 facial treatments while massage clients benefit from fluffy robes and a eucalyptus steam room. But the staff's dedication to well-being doesn't stop with the clients?contributions to the Make a Wish Foundation and multiple cancer research organizations echo this allegiance to communal prosperity, and any nonprofit group or charitable organization may use the Del Mar spa's conference room for free.
In 2011, the International SPA Association honored Spa Gregorie's CEO Angela Cortright with the Dedicated Contributor of the Year award. The press release cites her commitment to well-being and public service beyond her three eucalyptus-scented spas and reveals her favorite quote to be Muhammad Ali's maxim, ?Service to others is the rent we pay for our room here on Earth.? This attitude has earned the company an avalanche of awards, which document the good works of its expert aestheticians, hair designers, and massage therapists.
