Employee Spotlight: Kaelani Acosta

What really makes Evolutions special is our wonderful employees. When we started Evolutions Medical Spa back in 2005 we had 5 employees.  We are now up to 30!

They are all great people and they work very hard everyday to make your experience with Evolutions the best it can be.

Each month we are featuring two employees to let you know a little bit more about the people that make up the Evolutions’ team.

Employee Profile – Kaelani Acosta

Kaelani has been at Evolutions for just over 2 years now.  Prior to working with us, she accumulated a variety of work experience including sales at a cosmetics company and being an administrative assistant for a high-end construction company.  She is also a licensed aesthetician so she is very knowledgeable about both skin care and make-up. (Next time you see her be sure to ask about your home care regimen!) We are happy to have Kaelani with us!

What is the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had (prior to Evolutions)?

One of my most memorable jobs was working at LUSH Cosmetics. It was a lot of fun being interactive and hands on with customers. It was a great place to work at because it taught me a lot about ingredients and the importance of using high-quality ingredients in skincare products. Not to mention having a surplus of bath bombs was always a nice perk! 

What do you like about working at Evolutions?

I love working at Evolutions because of the relationships I have with patients, clients, and my co-workers. Everyone that works here genuinely likes one another which creates a harmonious work environment.

What is your preferred treatment at Evolutions to have done?

I actually have three favorite treatments! You can never go wrong with the Revitalizing Oxygen Facial, I mean who doesn’t want a facial that leaves you instantly glowing, more sculpted looking, and hydrated! Laser Hair Removal has also been a big game changer for me since it makes showering a breeze and allows me to not have to think twice about putting on a tank-top. Lastly, I credit the Alpha-Beta Peel for helping reverse all the sun damage I got at the beach when I was a kid.  

What is your #1 home care product sold at Evolutions?  Why?

My go-to skincare product is the Nia24 Rapid Exfoliating Serum. Hands down it’s the best product we carry in my opinion; especially if you’re trying to combat minor blemishes, shrink your pore size, reduce hyperpigmentation, and make your skin feel baby soft all while keeping your skin feeling hydrated.  It contains Nia24’s patented Pro-Niacin molecule that helps strengthens and nourish the skin’s barrier and has been clinically proven to visibly improve skin tone, texture, dark spots, sun spots, and discoloration. It also contains willow bark, rose bud, and prickly pear. This whole skincare line is perfect for anyone that lives in Southern California and enjoys the sun. 

What is your favorite quote / mantra / words of wisdom?

“The rule of thumb is you never take action when there is negative emotion within you because it will always be counterproductive. Always talk to yourself until you feel better and then follow the inspired action that comes from that open valve.”- Abraham Hicks 

What is something people would be surprised to know about you?

Although my name is Hawaiian, I am not! Feel free to ask why I was named Kaelani and what it means.

If you love Kaelani as much as we do, let her know by sharing a testimonial on YELP or GOOGLE. We’ll read your review to all of our employees at our next staff meeting.

Botox, Dysport, Xeomin: Top Cosmetic Treatments in the US

Last year there were over 7.4 million Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin treatments in the US. 

According to the 2018 National Plastic Surgery Statistics report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), Botox, Dsyport, and Xeomin are up 845% from a mere 786,911 treatments in 2000.

Why is Botox so popular? At our Santa Barbara medical spa, our clients tell us they love Botox/Dysport because:

  • It’s a quick treatment with no downtime
  • Botox / Dysport is affordable (in comparison with a plastic surgery procedure)
  • Great results!

Botox and Dysport are primarily used to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet (around the eyes). It may be used in other areas of the face (only recommended if your nurse is trained and experienced). Injected Botox blocks the signal from the nerves to the muscles which prevents them from contracting. The result is a softening and relaxing of wrinkles in the injected area. A Botox/Dysport treatment takes about 30 minutes and there is very little discomfort. Most people see full results one to two weeks after the appointment. Results last 3 to 4+ months.

If you are considering Botox/Dsyport, call us to today (805-695-2197) to schedule a consultation or request an appointment online.

Featured Day Spa Treatment: DermaSweep MD

As our skin ages, the natural exfoliation process slows down. Exfoliating treatments at Evolutions work to speed up the natural cell turnover and help you to achieve and maintain clear, healthy, youthful-looking skin.

DermaSweep MD is our most advanced exfoliation treatment. It uses a variable-level vacuum system to gently lift the skin as the device “sweeps away” the dead skin layer quickly and painlessly. Increased blood flow in the treated area encourages collagen formation, toning, and firming of the skin.

A DermaSweep treatment also includes an Epi-Fusion. You aesthetician will help you choose a skin specific topical solution that is designed to treat common concerns such as photodamage / sun-damaged skin, acne, dry skin, and hyperpigmentation. The solution is applied under vacuum pressure while the system gently removes dead skin cells.

The treatment is relaxing and designed to improve overall skin health and you will notice the difference in your skin after one treatment. DermaSweep MD is $165 per treatment or purchase a series of 6 for $825 (1 free).

Contact us at (805) 695-2160 to schedule your DermaSweep MD appointment.

Rhonda was the first employee hired when the Perkins family decided to start Evolutions Medical Spa over 13 years ago!

Neuromodulators (Dysport and Botox) for the (relatively) immediate results and the impact it has on my clients’ appearance and confidence.

What is your preferred treatment at Evolutions to have done?

Ultherapy – the results can be dramatic for the appropriate client.

What is your #1 home care product that is sold at Evolutions?  Why?

Luzern Force De Vie Creme Intensive. What they don’t list in the ingredient deck is the “magic” it contains. I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT IT!

No matter what is going on in my life, I often hear my grandmother’s voice saying, “Lila, it could always be worse…”

What is something people would be surprised to know about you?

What do you like to do in your free time?

I volunteer a ridiculous number of hours at my daughter’s school — but the days are long and the years are short. I also love watching her perform (sing/dance)

They are all great people and they work very hard everyday to make your experience with Evolutions the best it can be. Each month we are featuring two employees to let you know a little bit more about the people that make up the Evolutions team.

Meet Mimi Jarchow, Lead Aesthetician

Mimi Jarchow Evolutions Spa Santa BarbaraMimi was a popular aesthetician at Avia Spa for years. Once Evolutions took over the space and created Evolutions Day Spa, she became a key member of our aesthetician team (and eventually became our Lead Aesthetician). She is a talented and dedicated aesthetician and has a loyal client following.

What is the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had (prior to Evolutions)?

I worked at two health food stores in Santa Barbara for almost a decade. It was fascinating learning about vitamins, herbs, and all different types of therapies. That’s where I became an ingredient girl. It’s so important to know what you put into your body and on your skin

What do you like about working at Evolutions?

There is no place like Evolutions in Santa Barbara. From the treatments we offer to the beautiful facility and the team I work with. Everyone is so professional.

What is your favorite treatment to perform?  Why?

I like to perform the Deluxe Oxygen Facial. It is a very luxurious facial with immediate results. It leaves the skin feeling hydrated, plump, and toned.

What is your preferred treatment at Evolutions to have done?

I love the Signature Salt Stone Glow – 90 minutes of SHEER BLISS!

What is your #1 home care product that is sold at Evolutions?  Why?

I don’t have just one. First, the Luzern Force De Vie Luxe moisturizer is incredibly hydrating. It leaves your skin looking radiant and dewy. Second, the Revale Eye Serum – great for under eye circles & eye puffiness.

What is your favorite quote / mantra / words of wisdom?

There are no problems, only solutions!

What is something people would be surprised to know about you?

I have curly hair. LOL!

What do you like to do in your free time?

I love spending time with my husband and two sons. We love being outdoors – hiking, camping, and biking.
