When I first heard that YOUnique Surgery Center & Medical Spa was coming to Santa Clarita, I was thrilled. Several years ago, I accompanied my mother to her cosmetic surgery consultation at YOUnique's surgery center in Santa Monica and we were both so impressed. Located directly across the street from the famous pier, the gorgeously-appointed office boasted incredibly-friendly, knowledgeable staff - and ocean views. When I heard about the location opening in the SCV, I was intrigued; Santa Clarita might have Awesometown, but we're lacking Pacific Ocean coastline.
I should have figured that owner Dr. Mark Youssef had created the perfect plan to provide SCV residents with A-lister care without the drive on the 405. The Santa Clarita YOUnique offices are conveniently located within the expansive Priscilla's Salon, giving time-crunched moms like me the opportunity to receive cosmetic surgery consultations from Dr. Youssef himself just minutes from their homes. Medspa treatments are performed right here in the SCV, while surgical patients then travel to Santa Monica for their procedure.
This balance allows the diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery to introduce innovative and remarkably-effective injectables, surgical procedures, laser treatments and facials to our community in a way that capitalizes on your need for convenience while providing you celebrity-grade results. And, just in time for Mother's Day, new patients get $50 off their first treatment.
YOUnique's selections are... unique! Dr. Youssef is not just a celebrated cosmetic surgeon; he's an educator in his field and is passionate about providing his patients with scientifically-proven treatments that change lives. If it can make a noticeable, beneficial difference in how a woman looks and feels, even after having kids - his practice has it. The selection is wide, state of the art and geared towards natural-looking results. As a mom, these are my top picks.
The Mommy Makeover
There's a reason this combination of services is so popular! Many of today's moms adore their children - but not the changes to their bodies that occurred in the process of bringing them into the world. Dr. Youssef's unique, minimally-invasive methods ensure gorgeous results with less scarring, downtime and pain. Traditionally, Mommy Makeovers include any combination of breast augmentation/lift, liposuction and tummy tuck - but are increasingly seeing additions like Brazilian butt lifts and vaginal rejuvenation.
YOUnique O2 Oxygen Facial
When you're a mom running between work, soccer practice, ballet, tutoring and more, it's hard to find time to come up for air. No matter; the O2 Oxygen Facial fixes you right up! Using medical-grade hyperbaric O2 infused with plant peptides and essential vitamins and minerals, this is the red carpet of facials. Mom will instantly glow - and not because she's winded from trying to get dinner on the table before 7pm.
The Cosmelan Peel
Brown spots seem to be part of "mom life," thanks to both pregnancy and time in the sun (I always remember to put their sunblock on. Mine? Not so much.). This safe combo of depigmentation agents decreases melanin production in the skin, which is responsible for forming brown spots.
The Fractional Pearl Laser
This premium laser gives moms the skin they remember - before the worries, exhaustion and stress that comes with motherhood joined up with Father Time and aged their visage!
Mom's face will look clearer, younger, more toned and healthier - no surgery required! Staggering results are obvious even after only one treatment - with minimal downtime. Engaging every layer of the skin from the bottom up, the Fractional Pearl works miracles by shrinking pores, eliminating discoloration, banishing sun damage, ridding redness, smoothing lines and more. Pearl's distinctive laser wavelength sends pulses of light in a pattern to maximize every minute of the treatment to encourage faster results.
A Mid-face "Lift" with Juvederm Voluma
Moms have lots of reasons to smile - including not looking like a marionette puppet when they do it, thanks to Juvederm Voluma.
Juvederm Voluma has been statistically proven as the first, longest-lasting filler, with studies showing that it can last up to two years. This filler doesn't just fill, but is becoming famous for lifting in the mid-face areas. This dermal filler is highly recommended by Dr. Mark Youssef to patients who desire facelift-like results but aren't ready for surgery.
