The lowdown: Keep skin looking fresh and youthful at newly opened Barba Skin Clinic. The clinic caters to clients’ beauty needs. “Barba Skin Clinic bridges the gap between the expertise of the dermatologist, me, and four highly trained, skilled aestheticians,” doctor Alicia Barba says.
The ‘hood: The clinic is a puddle jump away from the luxurious homes of Bay Point.
The ambience: Think calming and clean with doses of high glam. Walls are adorned in fresh white-hued paint and soft sea grass wallpaper while furnishings are upholstered in relaxed, neutral tones of linen.
The highlights: The must-try service here is the Barba Signature Facial ($150 to $175), which is customized for your skin type. It includes a facial, microdermabrasion and a peel, chosen by your aesthetician. “This is the one that put us on the map and patients feel provides the most bang for the buck. The best part is customizing this for our patients so that it is a bit different every time,” Barba says.
