Anyone who’s looked into cosmetic and dermatological services recently knows there’s a plethora of choices out there. But San Diegans are making their preference clear. For the past four years, Dr. P. Alexander Ataii and his Medical Spa, Laser Cliniqúe, have won the coveted “Patient Choice Award.”

Dr. Ataii has over 11 years of experience in cosmetic and laser procedures and believes providing an outstanding patient experience is as important as providing excellent medical care. “Most of my new patient referrals come from my established patients, which is the ultimate compliment to me as a physician. We work hard to ensure the comfort of our patients and strive to create a friendly relaxing spa environment that will have patients wanting to come back,” said Dr. Ataii.

In 2005, Dr. Ataii opened his medical spa, Laser Cliniqúe, at the Torrey Hills Center in Carmel Valley. The state-of-the-art facility, between La Jolla and Del Mar, provides a serene spa-like environment. The most popular services at Laser Cliniqúe are non-invasive cosmetic dermatological procedures like Botox Cosmetic, Juvederm, laser hair removal, laser tattoo removal, acne and acne scar treatments, facial rejuvenation, vein and cellulite treatments.

One of the most innovative treatments being done at Laser Cliniqúe is Ultherapy, an FDA-approved, non-surgical face and neck lift procedure. Ultherapy has been featured on 20/20, The View, Dr. Oz, and Barbara Walters because of its effectiveness in lifting and tightening loose skin – with no cutting and no downtime.

This one-time treatment uses direct sound waves to gently heat the tissue which helps the body create new collagen – vital to maintaining skin’s youthfulness. “We now have a 60-minute procedure to offer our patients who are looking for an entry-level cosmetic procedure to counter the effects of gravity on their skin. With Ultherapy, we can reach the deep support structures of the skin that are targeted in a facelift, only without disturbing the surface of the skin. Our patients love that there is no downtime whatsoever, and that they can return to their normal activities right away,” said Dr. Ataii.
