In business in Dana Point since 2005, formerly under the name OC Medical Aesthetics until incorporation in 2011, Coast Medical Aesthetics will celebrate one year in its new Dana Marina Plaza location in May.
Co-owners Diane Bellinger, RN, and Dr. Woodrow Wilson, MD, medical director, moved to the new location from La Plaza and agree that they and their patients enjoy being so close to the Harbor and love the coastal décor, light and positive energy of the new space.
“I love Dana Point, the place, the people and this new space,” Wilson said. “I’ve lived here for 11 years and the urgent care I work in is right down the street. I love living and working in this community.”
The business specializes in non-surgical medical aesthetics, including Botox, dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Voluma, chemical peels, injectable vitamins, Latisse for lashes and carries skincare lines such as Epicuren and SkinMedica. Coast Medical Aesthetics is an Allergan Platinum level provider, Bellinger added.
Bellinger has 13 years of experience in administering injectable treatments and believes that, along with truly listening to patients’ wants and desired outcomes, sets the business apart.
“I go out of my way to make sure patients get what they want and expect,” Bellinger said. “We never try to upsell or promise unrealistic outcomes and don’t set minimums on treatments such as Botox. Whether treating just a few tiny lines or the full face, we believe each patient is unique and beautiful and work to enhance that. I love it when a patient tells me it’s the best Botox treatment they’ve ever had. Most of our business comes from referrals.”
Coast Medical Aesthetics offers free, no-pressure consultations.
