Practicing for more than 25 years, Dr. Kathleen Griffin and her team provide customers with an array of rejuvenation treatments. Nurse practitioner Dianne Sandel and Dr. Griffin handle all laser treatments and engineering medical weight loss programs while medical aestheticians complement Dr. Griffin's internal care with skin and body treatments. The doctor herself personally administers all injectables and fillers. Among various services, the doctor and nurse diminish veins with sclerotherapy, tighten skin with laser facials, and inject volumizing fillers, in addition to laser hair removal, skin rejuvenation, sun-spot and sun-damage removal, laser tattoo removal, spider vein removal, wrinkle reduction, and lip enhancement. 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, 2014, and 2015.
Aside from being ingested by a toddler at some point, mud, clay, and ink don’t have much else in common⎯except for helping skin look better. Spa Botanica uses these unlikely ingredients, along with Image Skincare and Rhonda Allison skincare products, during its roster of facials, body treatments, and henna-tattoo services. A Hydrafacial cleanses, hydrates, and moisturizes while removing dead skin. An infrared detoxifying body wrap detoxifies from head to toe, helps reduce the appearance of cellulite, and improves circulation to the skin. Ornate designs temporarily decorate the skin with henna art that can last up to three weeks.
SkinDeep empowers patients by helping them combat signs of aging in their skin. With dual board certifications, Dr. Bipin Patel helps rejuvenate appearances with cosmetic surgery and injectable dermal fillers, which work to erase fine lines and wrinkles. The center also offers hair-restoration treatments and chemical peels in addition to advanced laser treatments, such as hair removal, tattoo removal, and skin-resurfacing procedures with the Cutera CoolGlide system.
