Kelly Halloran was a dermatology nurse practitioner with over 20 years of experience when her clients urged her to start her own medical spa. “It would never have dawned on me to do such a thing – to start a new business,” Kelly admitted, “because I was not a business woman. But in 2006 I decided to give it a try.”

The result was Mermaid by the Sea Clinical Skin Care in Carlsbad, now reopened as Mermaid by the Sea in Encinitas. “It took all I could get and give to build a business establishment with not only panache, but with all the most current technologically safe, sound, and effective cosmetic dermatologic procedures, treatments, and skin care products available,” explained Kelly.

A self-described mermaid, Kelly’s aim is to make her clients feel as beautiful as mermaids themselves. “I think my patients like that I work with them in achieving their desired results,” she shared. “They know I will not force my Kelly_Mermaid_Centerfoldideas for beauty on them but go with their concept of beauty.”

UCSD and UCLA trained, Kelly collaborates with Dr. Linda Falconio, a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of Illinois who completed her family practice residency at the UCSD Medical Center. Together, they are able to offer cosmetic and medical treatments under one roof. “We have a whole range of very effective non-surgical means to help every cosmetic skin care problem and to meet every pocketbook,” Kelly asserted. That includes chemical peels, medical facials, microdermabrasion, fotofacials, photodynamic therapy, Portrait plasma resurfacing, fillers and volumizers, Botox, sclerotherapy for leg veins, and laser hair removal, to name a few.

The results, according to Kelly’s clients, are spectacular. As Michelle B. reported, “Kelly Halloran is the best dermatologist I have ever been to. She has a great eye for cosmetic improvements.”

Tiffany M. added, “I have been a client of Kelly Halloran’s for many years and I could not be more impressed by her abilities as a dermatological expert. I trust her and her artistic abilities completely and would never hesitate to refer any of my friends to her.”

“Often patients’ expectations are not only achieved, they are exceeded, and many times immediately or with little downtime,” confirmed Kelly. Check out all the services she offers, along with pages of testimonials,
