Vistnes Plastic Surgery of Palo Alto, Dean Vistnes 1515 El Camino Real, Suite B, Palo Alto, CA 94306

SkinSpirit Premier Medspa Palo Alto

Dr. Vistnes is currently in full-time private practice in Palo Alto, California with a practice devoted to cosmetic surgery. Having recognized the growing demand for non-invasive procedures such as laser hair removal, skin rejuvenation, dermal fillers, Botox, IPL and microdermabrasion, Dr. Vistnes and his staff have developed an unparalleled reputation with the opening of our medically supervised spa SkinSpirit with three location in the Bay Area.

I look forward to meeting you and going over the surgical options customized to your personal needs. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Dr Vistnes, recognizing the growing demand for non-surgical ways to slow and reverse the aging process, opened his first free-standing medical spa in 2003 in downtown Palo Alto. SkinSpirit was born. In a very short time, SkinSpirit developed an unparalleled reputation as being the place to go for laser hair removal, fillers, Botox, fractional laser treatments, Thermage and other effective treatments. Physician designed facials, medical grade microdermabrasion, chemical peels and therapeutic body treatments rounded out the possible treatment options for patients. It wasn’t long before two new SkinSpirit locations opened in Walnut Creek and Mill Valley. Now we can seamlessly integrate all your surgical procedures with the non-surgical procedures that enhance and prolong your results.

Patient Testimonials

“The service at SkinSpirit is professional and efficient in a friendly environment. I have gone to there for several years and always walk away from my treatments knowing I have received excellent care.”

“I have never written a review but the service I just received at Skin Spirit was so exceptional and so different from past experiences with laser hair removal that I had to put fingers to keyboard. Let me start by saying I am a yoga teacher and therefore very spooked by the artificial-ness behind med spas but SkinSpirit did not give off that vibe at all! My perception was that they place wellness above anything else and all their staff exude this philosophy. So you still have access to all the state of the art treatments but in a very balanced way. The front desk staff is also very kind and accommodating. I wouldn’t go anywhere else and am looking forward to throwing away all my razors!”

“I’ve been going to SkinSpirit for over four years now, and my teenage daughters have been going for that long too. I LOVE everyone I have seen at SkinSpirit. Lynn Bartels is my favorite because she is a nurse practitioner who does my botox and restalyne injections, my IPL, and my thermage, and works with my girls to alleviate their acne. She’s an expert at what she does and loves her job. She is always researching and learning new methods and improving her technique by attending classes, seminars and working with other professionals. Facial contouring is both a science and an art and she is a master at both. I have always found the front staff to be professional, knowledgeable and discreet. While their prices and products are expensive, I haven’t found them cheaper any where else. And Lynn is always cognizant of money: “I want you to get the most out of your beauty budget.” When Lynn has been unavailable I have seen Michelle who is also a pro. My girls and I also get fabulous and healing facials from the estheticians; so far Cheryl is our favorite but no one has been a disappointment. I recommend SkinSpirit to both those experienced in skin care and to novices. I have never felt pressured to buy any product or undergo any procedure. No one has ever said to me anything like “we really need to do something about those ugly circles under your eyes” or “we can make those circles go away with” such and such procedure. I’m the one who has to ask: “Is there anything you can do to reduce these ugly circles under my eyes” or “Are there other procedures that you would recommend for me”. I always go into SkinSpirit feeling pretty and I walk out feeling even prettier.”
