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.
"We are not about anti-aging; we are about aging gracefully and painlessly," says Dr. Arnold Kremer, the head of Del Mar Integrative Medicine. The osteopathic physician and his team offer a host of aesthetic and wellness services, including acupuncture treatments, bio-identical hormone-replacement therapy, life coaching, and dermal fillers. In many cases, the center employs advanced technology, as is the case with its fractional laser treatments, photofacials, and broadband-light therapy. The team also administers?platelet-rich-plasma injections, for both aesthetic and medical reasons: the PRP injections not only rejuvenate complexions, but can also treat sports injuries and osteoarthritis.
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.
Under the auspices of board-certified dermatologist and dermatopathologist Dr. Heidi Gilchrist, the staff members at Gilchrist Aesthetic and Medical Dermatology help clients maintain vibrant, healthy skin. They practice a blend of conventional Western medicine and holistic approaches, focusing on prevention to ensure skin maladies don't go untreated. 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.
The medical director of The Institute for Aesthetic Medicine believes a beautiful appearance can be attained through noninvasive, surgery-free techniques that leave patients rejuvenated with minimal downtime. His laser and radio-frequency treatments tighten skin and cosmetic injectables reduce facial wrinkles. Susie, the aesthetician on staff, performs similarly noninvasive skincare services, such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and ultrasonic pore cleansing.
English, Spanish, French, Hungarian, and Romanian—these are the languages that Dr. George Weiss has trained his mouth to shape. But his cultural aptitude isn't the only impressive mark on his resumé. Dr. Weiss—a bariatric physician—has also spent the last two decades helping patients reclaim their bodies through anti-aging and weight-management programs. These days, the doctor combines his knowledge of conventional and integrative medicine at Wellness and Longevity Medical Group of La Jolla, booting fine lines and deep-set wrinkles with Botox, Dysport, Radiesse, Juvéderm, Sculptra, and Restylane/Perlane solutions while helping patients shave off unwanted curves with custom hCG diet plans and nutritional coaching. Dr. Weiss even helps patients balance off-kilter hormones, which can cause people to have mood swings or get into a slap fight with a friend’s wedding cake. By using a holistic age-management approach that combines a healthy lifestyle with natural bioidentical hormones and aesthetics, Dr. Weiss can help patients regain a sense of vitality.
