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.
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.

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.

When new patients visit the clinic, they undergo diagnostic evaluations of everything from genetics and hereditary issues to diet and lifestyle, helping Dr. Gilchrist develop a custom-tailored skincare regimen for them. The clinic's other services run from soothing, cosmetic facials to medical necessities, such as testing for skin cancer, infections, and allergies.
