Looking Good, Feeling Good

Dermacare Helps Clients Look as Good as They Feel

Looking and feeling good are typically synonymous, and Dr. Birchall of Dermacare San Diego wants to ensure the two go hand in hand, often telling his patients that his job is to make them look as good as they feel.

Feeling good at Dermacare is not a difficult task. The entire team is committed to excellent service and expert care, complemented by a warm, relaxing atmosphere. In fact, Dr. Birchall is known for his calm and straightforward style with clients, connecting with patients on a personal level. He focuses on educating patients and achieving their desired outcomes in all procedures, from hair removal to Botox injections to liposuction. For Dr. Birchall, every patient is the next success story.


Dr. Birchall’s career in medicine began in 1991. After graduating from the University of Calgary, he completed his residency at Foothills Hospital in the University’s Family Medicine program. Relocating to the San Diego area, he practiced at Palomar Pomerado Hospital, the VA Hospital, and served as a physician and the Medical Director at Penn Elm Medical Group in Escondido. Since 2006, Dr. Birchall has been practicing aesthetic medicine in Carlsbad and Rancho Bernardo. He is a member of the American Society of Cosmetic Physicians, as well as the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.

“Dr. Birchall is known for his calm and straightforward style with clients, connecting with patients on a personal level.”

Laser technology in aesthetic medicine has made great strides, and Dr. Birchall utilizes the most advanced techniques in all his services for both face and body shaping. Life Sculpt, or Laser Assisted Liposuction, works to remove subcutaneous fat from specific areas of the body to achieve similar outcomes as traditional liposuction. The use of the laser has additional benefits, including skin tightening and a reduction of sagging to create a smooth skin surface. CoolSculpt utilizes controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate fat cells. The unique technology eliminates the need for surgery and downtime. Dermacare is currently offering $100 CoolSculpt or LifeSculpt treatments to 92009 Magazine readers.

All procedures are completed by licensed medical estheticians and RNs. The Dermacare team is hand-selected by Dr. Birchall to guarantee the most trained and experienced professional staff. Pairing professionalism with the latest technology ensures the laser and cosmetic procedures are safe and effective, allowing clients to feel both relaxed and confident. From the initial reception to a client’s final visit, the Dermacare staff is committed to creating the best experience and most beautiful outcomes for every client.
