Frequently Asked Questions

Evolutions Medical & Day Spa is Santa Barbara’s premier spa, where the perfect fusion between clinical and the luxurious spa services is offered. Our day spa primarily focuses on relaxation and pampering, offering services such as massages, facials, and body treatments. Medical spa, on the other hand, offers a combination of traditional spa services and medical procedures, with a focus on improving the overall health and appearance of the skin, for a youthful and more attractive result.

Treatments are performed by trained and experienced therapists as well as licensed healthcare professionals including physician’s assistants and aestheticians.

Dr. Terry J. Perkins, M.D, a nationally-respected specialist in facial cosmetic surgery, skin rejuvenation, and body contouring, has been serving Santa Barbara and the Tri-Counties for over 30 years. Our cosmetic surgeon and onsite physician oversees the treatments.

At Evolutions, we also believe in educating our clients so they have the ability to make informed choices about their treatment(s).  Each month, we host an evening event that is free of charge and open to our clients and the general public. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Terry Perkins speaks about a pre-selected topic and usually, the treatments and/or products associated with the topic are offered at a discount that is available to the event’s attendees.

Also, VIP members receive discounts (from 15% – 20%) on services.  For more information about our Membership Program, click here.

Other times we offer discounts is when we are debuting a new service or if we are training one of our medical clinicians on a service.  To hear about all of our discount opportunities, be sure to sign up for our newsletter here.

Certain services, such as laser services and chemical peels, are meant to be done in several consecutive treatments to optimize the desired results. We reduce pricing when purchasing a series to encourage clients to make a commitment to the suggested number of treatments as well as keep the proper time schedule for each consecutive treatment in the series.

Evolutions show pricing on certain services (such as facials and chemical peels) but pricing for other services can vary depending on whether the treatment being purchased will be a single treatment or a series and what area is being treated (for example, there will be different pricing for laser hair removal of the legs versus the back because the treatment time varies depending on the size of the area treated). Also, the total number of treatments may vary from person to person in order to obtain the optimum results.

There are also frequently a number of ways to approach the concern of our client.  Consequently, we find that complimentary consultations are the best way to provide our clients with all the information they need to make an informed decision about whether or not to move forward with starting treatment.

The specific skincare regimen for each person should be customized and should address exfoliants, antioxidants, retinoids, and sun protection as basic elements. One of our staff members can help design a program for you with the products we carry which are hand-picked by Dr. Perkins and are the best in the medical cosmetic industry. Some are patented and only available through a physician’s office. Products at Evolutions are from a variety of lines such as Obagi, SkinCeuticals, DNA, Intraceuticals, Luzern, NuCelle, Latisse, TiZo (and more) and have been chosen based on their reputation, effectiveness, and level of client satisfaction.

The pharmaceutical-grade skincare products are more effective and yield results because they have more pure and higher active ingredients than products available at a department store or drugstore. “Over-the-counter” products are often “cosmetic grade” (a government designation that allows a higher amount of bacteria to be present than in pharmaceutical grade products) and have a higher level of preservatives to decrease bacterial growth as they sit on store shelves.

Yes, financing is available through CareCredit – a company that provides financing specifically for healthcare services.

We require at least a 24-hour notice for cancellation. Less than 24 hours’ notice or “no-shows” may result in a charge.
