A Better You

Better Off Transforms Skin and Body Painlessly and Effectively

mp_betteroff_1With summer just around the corner, you should look and feel like the best version of yourself. Better Off, a brand-new medical spa studio in Encinitas, can help. Better Off gently and effectively removes unwanted fat, wrinkles, acne scars, and skin spots without pain, as well as tattoos, with new, FDA-approved technology. “We want to help people feel good about themselves by removing what other efforts and age cannot,” explained Better Off Owner Sari Dickinson.

The studio’s non-invasive fat removal process uses pulsed, focused ultrasound technology to target and reduce localized fat deposits, reduce body circumference, and improve overall body shape. This includes treatment of excess breast tissue in men by eliminating fat cells. “The new system also uses integrated vacuum-assisted radio frequency to enhance fat cell destruction, expedite fat clearance, and tighten skin,” Sari said. There is no anesthesia or sedation required, and no discomfort or down time.

“Better Off is your destination for a more sculpted body and healthier-looking skin.”

Tattoos and skin spots are treated with a special machine that delivers ultra-short picosecond pulses of energy to specific areas of the skin, which breaks up the tattoo ink or pigmentation into smaller, more easily eliminated particles. Because the technology is so fast and powerful, it can reach tiny areas under the skin using a non-thermal effect, called a photoacoustic effect. The treatment, which can remove all colors from all skin types, including multi-colored and recalcitrant tattoos, does not cause the outer layer of skin to break, so patients experience little to no recovery time.


Wrinkle removal is performed using a machine that encourages production of new collagen by causing microscopic injuries in the deeper layer of the skin. The body immediately begins to heal, repair, and rebuild new skin cells, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment is also pain-free and requires no down time.

All treatments are performed by Better Off’s specially trained nurse practitioners and headed by medical director Dr. Robert Brunst, all located at their discreet, state-of-the-art studio in Encinitas. Prospective patients are encouraged to call and set up a free consultation. “If you want to look and feel better about yourself, Better Off is your destination for a more sculpted body and healthier-looking skin,” Sari shared. “Come visit us and see for yourself!”
