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.
Led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Amir Moradi, Moradi M.D.’s staff tends to cosmetic issues with noninvasive services, surgical treatments, and everything in between. The doctors help their clients settle on a plan suitable for their lifestyles and aesthetic goals before they undergo series of treatments, which can include laser hair removal, injections, rhinoplasty, and chemical peels from experienced providers.
In order to keep bodies glowing year-round, West Coast Tanning Productions is stocked with UV tanning beds and private Mystic Tan booths where visitors can relax during quick visits to build and maintain a tan. Also offering Fit Bodywraps, clients can lay back during 20-minute sessions that harness the power of infrared light and heat to effortlessly burn calories, detox, and potentially shed inches from the body. In addition to the fully-automated Mystic Tanning booths, West Coast Tanning also offers fully customized spray tans applied by certified airbrush technicians.
A board-certified plastic surgeon oversees the beautifying procedures at OasisMD, from cosmetic tucks and lifts to laser treatments and high-tech spa services. Beam-based services include blemish-banishing photofacials, acne clearing, and laser hair removal that erases unwanted strands from virtually any body part. Facial fillers such as Botox or Dysport help fill in fine lines and wrinkles, while Latisse treatments encourage personal growth in stubbornly immature eyelashes.
Dr. Bryan Doonan may oversee Medspa XL, but it’s the team of RNs, medical aestheticians, trained technicians, and massage therapists that run the show—particularly Jodi Sawyer. A licensed RN, she masters—and trains doctors and nurses to use—a slew of technologically adventurous treatments to fight aging, sun damage, and unsightly body hair and veins. The Harmony AFT Laser, for example, smoothes skin using gentle pulses of light. Without damaging the top layer of skin, the pulses of light rebuild collagen and even out skin tone. And this isn’t the only way to enhance and maintain beauty at Medspa XL.
The team’s grasp of pharmaceutically induced beauty is also vice-tight. They inject muscles with Botox to impede send wrinkles packing and help clients grow thicker, longer lashes with applications of Latisse or by tying helium balloons to each lash. They also offer complimentary initial consultations to clients unsure of what steps to take next.
The difference between a thermage treatment and a chemical peel at Aesthetically Pleasing Medical Spa is substantial—one uses radio frequencies and the other uses Obagi and SkinCeuticals products—but both are noninvasive. The staff of certified aesthetic nurses prefers these sorts of treatments to plastic surgery for almost any cosmetic need, whether it’s removing wrinkles, hair, facial lines, spider veins, or too much sunscreen. Monitoring the treatments is medical director Dr. Diana Hoppe, a board-certified OB/GYN physician dedicated to women’s health. Dr. Hoppe’s guidance and the staff’s care helped give the spa enough votes to be named Best Medical Spa by The San Diego A-List in 2012.
