Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Susan Stuart specializes in cosmetic skin treatments and procedures.

  • Our Services

    We take pride in offering the most popular medical spa services to the women and men who visit our La Jolla center. Options include:

    • Designer facials: Our facials are more than relaxing massage treatments for the face; they are actually quite beneficial to the health and beauty of the skin. With specialized options that address concerns such as signs of aging, redness, or acne, as well as options that nourish and rejuvenate the skin, our facials will help your skin feel silky smooth and restore its radiant glow.
    • HydraFacial MD®: The HydraFacial is a unique treatment system designed to deliver clearer, healthier and more youthful-looking skin in just minutes. Ideal for all skin types and textures, the HydraFacial targets a variety of skin concerns such as wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, clogged pores, sun damage and uneven skin tone. Developed by Edge Systems, HydraFacials use patented Vortex-Fusion® technology to deliver effective results without any invasive procedures, harmful lasers or lengthy recovery times.

      HydraFacial treatments combine relaxing spa therapies with medical technology to safely rejuvenate the skin. First, the skin is exfoliated and cleansed with a small tool, followed by a gentle acid peel to remove any remaining debris in the pores. Next, the pores undergo a painless extraction process. Finally, the skin is nourished with an antioxidant-rich serum. HydraFacial treatments usually take about 15 minutes to complete, and do not require any downtime. After just one treatment, many patients report seeing visible skin refinement, which can be maintained by using HydraFacial Daily Essential skin products at home or with monthly in-office HydraFacial treatments.

    • Microdermabrasion: These gentle yet effective treatments renew your skin's texture and radiance with no downtime. We recommend a series of 3 to 6 treatments spaced 1 to 2 weeks apart for optimal results.
    • Eclipse Micropen Elite: The Eclipse MicroPen™ Elite is a revolutionary new micro-needling device used to rejuvenate the skin. The automated technology is designed to treat a variety of skin concerns, including acne scars, fine lines, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation. This is possible through the tiny perforations made by the MicroPen™ into the skin, which stimulates the body's natural healing process. As a result, the skin's texture and tone can be improved for a healthier, younger-looking appearance. While the MicroPen™ can be used on most skin areas, the device is most commonly used to treat the face, neck, arms, stomach, and legs.
    • Electrolysis: As the most precise method of permanent hair removal, electrolysis is a popular option. We carefully treat one hair follicle at a time for results that are often more effective than laser hair removal. This service is ideal for the eyebrows and other parts of the face and works on all hair colors, even blonde and gray.
    • LATISSE® eyelash treatment: Apply this safe, effective prescription serum each night at home to enhance the beauty of your own natural eyelashes. Longer, thicker, darker lashes can help you feel more attractive with and without eye makeup.
