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 doctor and providers 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.
Even during the decade she spent as a stay-at-home mother, Nicole Bennett, the owner and aesthetician at Flawless Face & Body, always followed her own personal skin care regimen and even worked a few side jobs in cosmetics. But it wasn't until she decided to take a chance and go back to school that she realized that her passion was deeper than she thought, and that passion aligned with her quest for a new career. Her interest in skin care skyrocketed as she delved into the nitty-gritty science behind it, and she sped her way through Palomar Institute of Cosmetology.
After becoming a licensed aesthetician, Nicole opened her own wellness center, which has since expanded into a new clinic in the heart of San Marcos, providing skin care, massage therapy, acne treatments and hair-removal services. She also earned certification as an acne specialist, with the extra training inspiring her to dedicate a large portion of her service menu to result-oriented acne solutions. This dedication now takes the form of a full-fledged acne program, which blends biweekly clinic appointments with an at-home skin care regimen to take faces from spotty to spotless over the course of 12-16 weeks. The team at Flawless Face & Body strives to educate clients and give them the one-on-one time they need to reach their wellness goals within a private, relaxing environment. With the help of Image Skincare and Rhonda Allison products, specialists also counter blemishes and imperfections with facials, peels, and waxing, leaving skin as clean and smooth as a censored version of The Catcher in the Rye read by Barry White.
Overseeing both Dermacare centers in San Diego and Carlsbad, medical director Dr. Jeff Birchall has made it his mission to make patients "look as good as they feel." A board-certified family physician known for his calm, easygoing personality, Dr. Birchall channels more than two decades of experience in the medical industry to helm a team of aestheticians and registered nurses working tirelessly to correct skin problems and fight signs of aging with minimally invasive treatments, including Botox and Juvéderm. Dr. Birchall injects all dermal fillers himself, a treatment he claims is his favorite due to its "quick, dramatic results" and ability to turn dried figs back into plums. Other popular services include Fraxel laser treatments or IPL photofacials that harness cosmic light to correct skin tone and texture, and Cutera laser hair-removal treatments that safely and permanently reduce unwanted fuzz for clients of all skin types.
Though Era Skin Lounge's aestheticians are obsessed with skincare, they realize that a facial is probably not the most important thing their client has to do that day. This is why they use high-performance products in timesaving treatments designed to strike a balance between effectiveness and relaxation. Era's staff hunts down pore-clogging culprits with facials, chemical peels, and leads from an anonymous tip line, and they battle signs of age with retinol and medical-grade organic enzymes.
Image Centre's treatment menu might seem overwhelming if it wasn't for the technicians, stylists, aestheticians, and surgeons on hand to walk clients through their options. For quick beauty touchups, they may recommend a Shellac manicure or an airbrush spray tan. A more involved appointment might include a microdermabrasion facial combined with a cherry clarifying peel, or it might consist of a Brazilian blowout and a karaoke performance of the album "American Pie" and Other Eight-Minute Songs. Most serious of all would be the center's cosmetic-surgery options, including eye-lifts and liposuction, performed at a separate surgery center. To address their long-term health concerns, clients can also explore the center's weight-loss plans, which rely heavily on B12 and other vitamin injections in an effort to impact the body's metabolism.
