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.
The newly renovated Spa Kingston, formerly known as Lush spa, offers a fresh approach to the spa experience in San Diego. Owner and lead aesthetician Renee started her career like many others in the spa business: after graduating from the Douglas J Aveda Institute, she earned her license and got a skincare job in a high-traffic spa. But eventually, she longed for a new challenge. Wanting to learn the medical side of the beauty world, Maloney went to work for a plastic surgeon and became certified in a list of aesthetic medical treatments as long as the instructions for building a spaceship. With her new knowledge of IPL photofacials, peels, and laser hair removal, Maloney opened up her own business and never looked back. Each day, Maloney and her team of trained aestheticians combine the power of medical-grade treatments with the luxurious and relaxing elements of a top spa?including facials and waxing?to give clients warm and professional experiences that meets all their needs.
The experienced aestheticians at Ageless and Beautiful foster smoother dermises and slimmer waistlines with Lipomassage, also known as endermologie. During the noninvasive, FDA-approved treatment, trained hands guide dual-action rollers across problem areas to break apart fat cells. The rollers, much like a moody blowfish, employ a combination of agitation and suction designed to shrink cellulite and firm loose skin. Though not classified as a weight-loss procedure or a mammal, Lipomassage can reduce inches in addition to reducing the appearance of cellulite.
The board-certified dermatologists at Goldman, Butterwick, Fitzpatrick, and Groff, Cosmetic Laser Dermatology rid bodies of unsightly cellulite with a coterie of cosmetic procedures. After a consultation identifies customer desires and problematic areas, an FDA-approved VelaShape laser works to reduce cellulite by blasting bipolar radio frequency and infrared light energy onto the selected skin surfaces. The warm light waves reduce the size of fat cells and fat chambers, gradually evening the epidermis and leveling off cellulite, rendering skinparts as smooth as a Boyz II Men CD dipped in grease. Finally, doctors tighten the treated area with a specialty vacuum and roller, paving a highway for heat energy that spurs metabolism and lymphatic drainage. Like most good naps, the sessions last one hour on average, but can vary depending on the body area or severity.
An undeniable expert in the filed of phlebology, Dr. O’Byrne has spent nearly two decades honing her ability to treat large and painful varicose veins, even sharing her knowledge with the world during an episode of
The Doctors. Luckily, local clients can see the doctor in person at her own practice, The Vein Clinic. Depending on the condition of a patient’s veins, Dr. O’Byrne can prescribe any number of treatments following the initial consultation. In some situations, she can even perform the first steps the same day.
Though veins are the focus of The Vein Clinic, licensed aesthetician Amanda Nichol is also available to administer a variety of skin-rejuvenating treatments. Microdermabrasion, pumpkin peels, and vitamin-packed facials are just the tip of the iceberg of Amanda's abilities. The specialist can also help reverse and slow the signs of aging with Fractora Firm and Fractora Plus. Each treatment lifts and tightens sagging skin without a single scalpel, suture, or piece of duct tape.
When not reading or mastering yoga poses, Dr. Bita Tahvildari is maintaining her community's oral health. That includes everything from routine checkups and fillings to teeth whitening and dental implants. To keep patients comfortable during such procedures, she employs a well-practiced gentle touch, as well as the latest technology. For instance, Dr. Tahvildari precisely targets soft tissue with lasers, which seal off blood vessels and nerve endings, ultimately resulting in less bleeding and swelling. They also sterilize the treated area and cause much less discomfort than traditional dental drills, such as a hammer and wedge. To alleviate any lingering anxieties, Heavenly Smiles offers sedation dentistry, making even the most intricate procedures a breeze.
