New spa in San Diego is a one-stop-shop for beauty

There is a place in San Diego where you can come and relax and rebuild your self-confidence, and it’s amazing.

Right now they are offering a "Pride Special" which will give you a 20% discount on all services through July.

Exquisite MD Spa has state of the art equipment and each room is fitted with beauty regimens or devices that can either tell you what areas you should be concentrating on or enhance your beauty without stress. 

Located at 2100 Fifth Avenue, it's called a spa, but it's more like a beauty hub. 

After entering this newly redecorated building, the first thing you'll notice is the reception area and comfortable waiting room.

There are two hallways down either side of the entrance, and these are the gateways to better health, cosmetic evaluations and pain management.

There is nothing this spa cannot offer. I was nicely greeted at the front desk and offered water. The modern decor immediately struck me with bright colors illuminated by the many windows surrounding the waiting area.

But there is so much more, and the proprietor Dr. Alicja Steiner and her nurse,  Lola Moncrief would soon appease my curiosity. 

Dr.Steiner went to university in Poland and earned her medical degree in Warsaw.

Closer to home, she served her residency at Harvard and University of California San Diego. She completed a residency in general surgery at the Cabrini Medical Center in New York City, and a residency in anesthesiology and a fellowship in pain management at New York University Medical Center.

Not only is Dr. Steiner one of the best in her field, but she is also a philanthropist who gives to Father Joe’s Village and their Discover a Dancer program.

Her office is very diverse: English, Polish, Russian, Spanish, are the languages used.  

But enough of the technical stuff, her clinic is a vibrant and relaxing place to take an hour or even a day to regain your feelings of self-confidence.

In fact, that is what is most important to Dr. Steiner.

Her office offers Hydra Facial, IV Therapy, LightStim, Laser Therapy, Massages, Rejuvenation, Skin Care Products, VISIA Complexion Analysis System, Various weight-loss programs: Licensed provider of Medi-Fast.

Two of the programs I found the most interesting was the LightStim and VISIA Complexion Analysis System.

The FDA-cleared LightStim looks like a giant tanning bed with 18, 240 LED lights embedded in the frame. But this machine isn't for tanning, in fact, it's going to do just the opposite. 

LightStim emits multiple wavelengths that work together to increase blood circulation and reduce pain. 

The client lays down on this bed of lights and depending on what they are looking for can get pain relief, accelerate wound healing, even protection from cardiovascular disease, heart attacks, and strokes. 

The LightStim also helps protect skin from UV damage. 

This topic got me wondering, being a native Californian, how damaged my skin is. 

Dr. Steiner's could tell me exactly how much damage my skin had taken over the last fifty years with a machine called the VISIA Complexion Analysis System. 

This unique device takes a picture of your face from the front, left and right sides. The detailed images are then run through state-of-the-art software that can give you a precise look at pores, wrinkles, and even hair growth. 

From there the technician Lola gave me product information, advice (use sunscreen) and other option offered by the spa. 

I could go and get hair removed, take a personal steam or learn about the products Dr. Steiner recommends. 

Luckily my face wasn't that damaged, but it is nice to know there are options within the facility to take care of my concerns. 

This amazing facility has it all: accommodating staff, state-of-the-art technology and the latest in beauty products.
