When Oxford educated Doctor Bernard DeBerry, specializing in facial and cosmetic plastic surgery, first decided to offer his services in the relaxing and rejuvenating ambiance of a sumptuous spa, he revolutionized the Californian beauty industry. Before DeBerry’s fusion of medical services with luxurious recreation, those with a penchant for youthful looks and overall bodily health had to visit different facilities to address a variety of concerns. But today, in a single visit to Degäm Medspa, one can get a microdermabrasion as well as a relaxing massage to help release stress and erase signs of aging.

Dr. DeBerry's long and rigorous training and academic research involvement are at the core of his clinical practice philosophy. He employs the most current and advanced therapeutic procedures after scientific test evaluations have proven safe and effective for everyday practice.

Huntington Beach Chemical Peel

Chemical peel uses a chemical solution to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers. It is helpful for those individuals with facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation. Phenol, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and alphahydroxy acids (AHAs) are used for this purpose. The precise formula used may be adjusted to meet each patient's needs.

Chemical peel is most commonly performed for cosmetic reasons — to enhance your appearance and your self confidence. Chemical peel may also remove pre–cancerous skin growths, soften acne facial scars and even control acne.

Alphahydroxy acids (AHAs), such as glycolic, lactic, or fruit acids are the mildest of the peel formulas and produce light peels. These types of peels can provide smoother, brighter–looking skin for people who can′t spare the time to recover from a phenol or TCA peel.

Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) can be used in many concentrations, but it is most commonly used for medium–depth peeling. Fine surface wrinkles, superficial blemishes and pigment problems are commonly treated with TCA. The results of TCA peel are usually less dramatic than and not as long-lasting as those of a phenol peel. In fact, more than one TCA peel may be needed to achieve the desired result.

Phenol is the strongest of the chemical solutions and produces a deep peel. It is used mainly to treat patients with coarse facial wrinkles, areas of blotchy or damaged skin caused by sun exposure, or pre–cancerous growths. Since phenol sometimes lightens the treated areas, your skin pigmentation may be a determining factor as to whether or not this is an appropriate treatment for you. Phenol is primarily used on the face; scarring may result if it′s applied to the neck or other body areas.


Huntington Beach Vein Treatment

Millions of women are bothered by spider veins – those small yet unsightly clusters of red, blue or purple veins that most commonly appear on the thighs, calves and ankles. In fact, it′s estimated that at least half of the adult female population is plagued with this common cosmetic problem.

Today, many plastic surgeons are treating spider veins with sclerotherapy. In this rather simple procedure, veins are injected with a sclerosing solution, which causes them to collapse and fade from view. The procedure may also remedy the bothersome symptoms associated with spider veins, including aching, burning, swelling and night cramps.

Santa Ana Face Lift

As people age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun and the stresses of daily life can be seen in their faces. Deep creases form between the nose and mouth; the jawline grows slack and jowly; folds and fat deposits appear around the neck.

A facelift (technically known as rhytidectomy) can’t stop this aging process. What it can do is set back the clock, improving the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redraping the skin of your face and neck. A facelift can be done alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping.


Santa Ana Massage

Massage therapy addresses a variety of health conditions, the most prevalent being stress–related tension, which, experts believe, accounts for 80%–90% of disease. Massage has been proven beneficial in treating cancer–related fatigue, sleep disorders, high blood pressure, diabetes, low back pain, immunity suppression, spinal cord injury, autism, post–operative surgery, age–related disorders, infertility, eating disorders, smoking cessation, and depression, to name just a few.

So what are you waiting for? Whether it is to benefit you looks or your soul, visit Degäm Medspa where ‘beauty, health and wellness meet’.
