Total Tightening

Evolutions is pleased to carry two top non-invasive skin tightening technologies, ReFirme and Titan. Now, with an exclusive protocol developed by Dr. Perkins, you receive the benefits of both procedures in a single treatment!

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.

Employee Spotlight– Stefani Wittmayer

Stefani has been at Evolutions for just over 2 years now.  Prior to working with us, she received a bachelor’s degree at UCSB, worked for a local design firm, and worked at the Spa at the El Encanto, providing her an excellent base to be an extremely valuable member of our front desk staff.  Stefani is very knowledgeable about our products and services and is always willing to take the time answer clients’ questions (and she does so thoroughly, accurately, and articulately). We are lucky to have her on the team!

What is your #1 home care product sold at Evolutions?  Why? I am a huge believer in the Obagi Clenziderm MD products.  One of my favorite products from the line is the “Pore Therapy” which is a salicylic-based toner.  I feel it truly makes your skin look porcelain, especially when combined with the “Obagi Daily Care Foaming Cleanser”.  I never go anywhere without these two products.

What is your favorite quote / mantra / words of wisdom? “You are your own refuge”  – derived from a Buddhist quote. 

What is something people would be surprised to know about you? I have a true passion for art and design.  You’ll often find me at the beach collecting driftwood for various pieces I’m designing for my home. 

What do you like to do in your free time? Anything beach-related.  From paddle-boarding, to kayaking, and hopefully surfing at some point!  Currently accepting applications for surf instructors. 🙂

Medical Spa In Santa Barbara - Liz

Employee Profile – Liz Groom, L.E.

Liz has been working with Evolutions for almost 4 years and has built a strong following of clients due to her skills as an aesthetician and sweet, genuine personality.  Last year she and her husband David spent 5 months going on a nationwide trip in their RV. Luckily they decided to come back to Santa Barbara in December and are now planning to stay for the foreseeable future.  We (and all of her clients who love her) are glad to have Liz back!

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

For most of my working like I was a personal trainer for 25 years but I think the most unusual and fun job was being a lifeguard at a waterslide park in the summer of 1995 in Chico, CA.

What do you like about working at Evolutions?

We are one big family. Working with people I care about and for people who care about me makes me always want to give 110% every day to Evolutions.

What is your favorite treatment to perform?  Why?

I really enjoy performing our Intraceuticals Oxygen facials. I love how relaxing and instant the results are. Clients feel revived and ready to present their best self to whatever they have planned that day.

Laser hair removal. Just makes for more time in the day for life’s adventures!

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

Sunscreen. All kind and brands. Depending on the needs of my clients and friends. I can just see how the sun’s damaging effects can age skin and I want to help slow that process but still support and outdoor lifestyle.

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

“Life is not a dress rehearsal” Life is precious and unpredictable. Live it to the fullest everyday and don’t ever forget to tell the people you love and care about that you love them, because you never know when you won’t get that chance again.

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

I became an Ironman in 2003 at Canada Ironman. I have been to Burning Man 4 times and my daughter Emily is graduating from UCSB this year.

Employee Spotlight: Erika Aleman, RN, BSN, CANS

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.  We are starting this feature to let you know a little bit more about the people that make up the Evolutions’ team. This month we are highlighting one of our nurses, Erika Aleman, RN, BSN, CANS and our Lead Massage Therapist,  Kristen Aguilar. Medical Spa in Santa Barbara - Eric Aleman

Employee Profile – Erika Aleman  

Erika has been working with Evolutions for over 2 years.  In October of 2018 she earned her Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist (CANS) certification, placing her among a select group of Registered Nurses nationally who have not only met the rigorous requirements for this designation, but also passed an extremely thorough exam on aesthetics. (Polly Dursum and Sue Manseau are also CANS certified).  In addition to being a skilled and compassionate nurse, Erika is fluent in Spanish.  We are lucky to have her as part of the Evolutions’ team!

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

I worked at an auto parts store during my college years.  I did everything from cashiering, to testing batteries and alternators, to ordering parts.  I can probably name more car parts than the average male!  

What do you like about working at Evolutions?

Prior to starting at Evolutions I was contemplating a career change.  I appreciate that the Perkins gave me the opportunity to train and work here because I know I found what I was meant to do.  I absolutely love what I do, my co-workers are amazing, and my clients are the best!

What is your favorite treatment to perform?  Why?

I don’t have a “favorite” (OK maybe filler) but I love the challenges that come with all the treatments we perform.  There are options for treating a client’s concerns and I like that we can customize out treatments to help them address their concerns so they look and feel their best.

What is your preferred treatment at Evolutions to have done?

Definitely a deep tissue massage from the day spa!  I also enjoy  collagen-stimulating treatments on the medical side such as Sculptra and Ultherapy because I prefer to age backwards.

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

Do I really have to choose just one?  We have a beautiful selection of products and I use many of them.  My favorite line is NIA 24 because I have seen great results with their products.  Obagi Elastiderm eye cream is a must as is tretinoin.  I also have to mention the Luzern Hydra-Enzyme masque.  It’s my special treat for my skin at least once per week.

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

Be positive, be kind, and look for the good in others.

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

I skipped the 7th grade.  I attended a private school where you worked at your own pace.  Apparently I worked quickly.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I enjoy spending time with my husband and four kids.  They are my world!  I also enjoying shopping (a little too much) and exercising (riding my beach cruiser, yoga, and interval training).

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

What do you like about working at Evolutions?

My patients!  After 13 years of working here, I now have hundreds of people I consider friends.

What is your favorite treatment to perform?  Why?

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!

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

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?

I’m a fanatic University of Michigan football follower! GO BLUE!!

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)
