The G Spa's staff, guided by Dr. Kathleen Griffin, thwarts the ravages of time with spa medicine tailored for women's needs. Practicing for more than 25 years, Dr. Griffin possesses comprehensive knowledge of the female form and all that ails it, from PMS and menopause to body-image issues caused by the unrealistic standards set by hourglasses. Nurse practitioner Dianne Sandel handles all laser treatments, women's annual exams, and engineering medical weight loss programs while medical aestheticians Jill, Monica, and Izabella complement Dr. Griffin's internal care with skin and body treatments. Among various services, the duo plumps earlobes with dermal fillers, diminishes veins with sclerotherapy, and tightens skin with laser facials. Life coach Petra Beumer rounds out the spa's offerings, rooting out the emotional and mental blockages that prevent women from losing weight or achieving their goals. The team?s combined services earned them a place as finalist for Best Medical Spa in the Santa Barbara Independent in 2011, 2012, and 2013.
