DermaPeel Microdermabrasion, an exfoliating treatment that restores a youthful vibrancy and glow to the face, is another popular medical spa service.            

"Many people who have never been to see a dermatologist might not realize that there is a wide range of treatments and procedures we have to offer," adds Dr. Stuart. "Because of the advancements that have been made in dermatological technology and treatments, I'm able to offer my patients procedures that produce results similar to those you'd expect from a surgical procedure without the discomfort, downtime, and expense."

Dr. Stuart recently began offering her La Jolla patients IPL facial rejuvenation treatments that can be used to treat the appearance of fine wrinkles, large pores, redness, and irregular complexion. IPL is gentler than other laser treatments and the energy delivered by the laser can be adjusted to fit the individual patient's needs, which means that healthy skin cells are left intact and there is minimal discomfort. Dr. Stuart's commitment to offering treatments that use state of the art technology like IPL laser is one of the reasons that so many people consider her one of the top dermatologists in the San Diego area.
