La Jolla Location Closure

We regret to announce that due to unforeseen complications having to do with the foreclosure of the building at 7630 Fay Ave, we have decided to move out of our space in La Jolla.

The uncertainty and potential negative ramifications of this change on our practice and patients were the primary reasons for this decision.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and are currently only seeing patients at the Scripps Ranch office.

We are very proud that in the time we were in La Jolla, Dr. Tess became a gold medal winner and was voted “Best Dermatologist” in The La Jolla Village News Reader Choice Awards.

We are already looking for a replacement location and will keep you posted!

If you have any questions, please call the Scripps Ranch Dermatology and Cosmetic Center. Thank you for your understanding.

Business As Usual in La Jolla – April 2012

A few patients who have been to our La Jolla office recently have seen notices posted on the walls that the current owner of the building is having some legal problems. These problems have nothing to do with us; we are mere leasees.

To the best of our knowledge, the only way we are affected is that we may have a new landlord soon. If anything changes, we will make an announcement. Until then, The Dr. Tess Dermatology and Cosmetic Center of La Jolla will continue to serve you at this location. Thank you for your concern and loyalty!

Come in and check out BodyRX by Dr. Tess – we can design the perfect program to help you look and feel your very best!

BodyRX by Dr Tess Presents Endermolift!

BodyRX™ by Dr. Tess, and LPG, the world leader in cellular stimulation, bring you Endermolift™ – a 100% natural anti-aging technique that redensifies the skin in depth and erases the signs of aging.

Endermolift™ offers immediate results, including a healthy glow and a natural, soothing lifting effect. Each session’s results add up to fill in wrinkles, redefine contours, and clarify the complexion.

The micropulsation of the LPG-patented Lift Heads creates a delicate tissue wave that gently stimulates skin. Depending on the frequency of the Lift flaps pulsation (4, 8, or 16 pulses/second), and the suction strength (adjustable intensity), the Lift Heads generate unique stimuli for each different aesthetic objective.

You could be a great candidate for the Endermolift by BodyRX by Dr. Tess if:

•  Your skin is losing density and firmness.

•  You are searching for the middle ground between mild solutions that are really ineffective and risky, invasive ones.

•  You believe “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,”  and want to try to prevent skin aging before it’s visibly apparent.

•  You know that just like muscles, skin needs exercise, a nourishing diet, and high-performance skin care.

•  You detest needles and artificial materials or you’re afraid of unwanted side-effects.

•  You want to look like yourself, only younger, and you certainly don’t want to freeze your facial expressions or look like someone else.

•  You feel it’s either too early or too late to consider more aggressive procedures.

•  You accept that you’re getting older, but you still want healthy, firm skin and a refreshed, glowing face.

•  You are numbered among the 94%* of women that don’t equate Beauty with invasive medical procedures.

•  You want to improve or sustain your skin’s youthfulness.

•  You believe taking care of yourself implies both well-being and relaxation.

Call us today. We are excited to introduce Endermolift and BodyRX™ by Dr. Tess to our clients!

See What We Have Up Our Sleeve! – A Personal Note From Dr. Tess

A personal note from Dr. Tess:
“Dear Friends,

I am so excited to share with you what I believe are truly breakthrough game changers that will help all of us achieve the longevity, beauty and health we all desire and deserve!

It is an honor to introduce to you and to the rest of the US, the FDA approved, scientifically proven LPG family of technologies! When experienced alone and when combined with the treatments we currently offer, LPG technology will take our current results to a level we could only dream of before! LPG’s patented  Mechano-Stimulation which can be customized for your particular concerns improves lymphatic drainage, increases blood flow, breaks down fat cells, and create new collagen.

What I personally have seen on my own face with the LPG Endermolift is firming, contouring, clarifying of my complexion and a glow like I have just come back from a restful vacation! And for my body, it has been incredible – I fit so much better in my clothes! I feel lighter, healthier and look less bloated and my skin looks tighter and younger! And as if these results are not enough, LPG Lipomassage and Endermolift are painless and relaxing! I can’t tell you how happy I am to have these technologies in my practice – I now know that as I get older, I will only continue to look and feel healthier and sexier!

Sounds too good to be true? Try it! Believe me, I was a skeptic too – until Dr. Lee and I traveled all the way to Montreal, Canada, to try the machines for ourselves and decided we want them for ourselves and for our patients!

Here’s to You at Your Best in 2012!”

Dr. Tess

New Show Tackles Taboo Filipino Issues

rsvp talk showThis article was written by Yong Chavez for ABS-CBN North America Bureau on September 1st, 2011.

RSVP” is The Filipino Channel’s (TFC) newest US-based weekly talk show and it aims to get their viewers engaged through an honest discussion of issues.

“RSVP” hosts actress G Tongi, Dr. Tess Mauricio and their guests will discuss sensitive issues such as challenges faced by bi-racial Pinoys, Filipinos’ obsession with whitening products, and what people do to be stars in the Philippines.

“We talk about issues that men don’t want to hear and women are too afraid to talk about and that in itself is very intriguing,” said host G Tongi.

“RSVP” is directed by ABS-CBN talent RD Alba and has Michael Carandang, an Emmy Award-winning producer of “The Tyra Banks Show” and “America’s Next Top Model,” as its show runner.

“People ask me all the time, ‘O, you’re going from mainstream to TFC, bakit, why?’ I’m like, ‘Why not?’ I think, Filipinos, it’s a great community here. If you produce a show for them that they love, I think that’s a great accomplishment by itself. I was born in the Philippines. I grew up in the Philippines so to be an immigrant and to move in the US regardless of how successful I’ve become in the US, it means nothing to me and my family if I can’t contribute sa mga Filipinos. TFC has been on for so many years and it cured my homesickness noong nasa Indiana ako,” said Carandang.

It was The Filipino Channel that brought them together.

Mauricio, a highly respected dermatologist in America who has been a guest on US mainstream shows like “The Doctors,” “The Rachel Ray Show” and “America’s Next Top Model” as a beauty expert, sought out Carandang after watching him featured on TFC.

In an episode, Mauricio will share the truths about beauty treatments, including the ones being marketed in the Philippines despite being considered unsafe by heath professionals.

Growing up, Mauricio also struggled with her skin color due to the pressure in the community to be as light-skinned as possible.

“In the Philippines, there’s all this obsession about obtaining white skin, bleaching to a point where it’s really unhealthy both physically, emotionally and psychologically. I was able to share about a topic that’s close to my heart,” Mauricio said.

Their first season’s guest list include notable Filipino and Filipino-American celebrities and also American newsmakers.

One of their upcoming guests is the so-called “Octomom” Nadya Suleman, who opens up like she has never before in her mainstream TV interviews.

G Tongi said she is excited for the chance to pursue an outlet that is very different from acting.

Her fans will also get to see her kids for the first time on the show.

“We did an episode where we discussed being bi-racial. I was really able to talk about that. It was a huge sigh of relief to be able to open up and share that about myself,” said G Tongi.

In their premiere episode on September 10, former Philippine actress Patricia Javier will reveal something personal that she has kept from the public.

Through stories like hers, “RSVP” aims to educate its viewers.

“It’s a talk show that empowers women,” G Tongi explained.

“Gusto namin na yung mga Kapamilya na nanood sa bahay, we want them to follow and watch and listen because a lot of the topics that we discuss this season are topics that we don’t normally feel comfortable talking about as Filipinos. What we did is we highlighted the stories that made us understand the topic a little better,” Carandang said.

Apart from issues, they will also feature high-achieving Filipinos in different fields with expertise to share to Filipinos who want to know how to make it in America.

“We really hope to inspire Filipinos out there to be proud to say they’re Filipinos,” Mauricio said.

“RSVP” will be shown on TFC every Saturday.
