Natalie McLaughlin Alexander, RN

I received my RN degree from North Shore Community College in Danvers, Massachusetts in May 2009. I have been working at Beatitude since July 2010. I was in the right place at the right time! I love the field of aesthetics!

I specialize in laser hair removal, body shaping, fat reduction and cellulite treatments, skin tightening, axillary hyperhidrosis treatment (excessive underarm sweating), and treatment of spider veins and sun damage/brown spots. I am certified in Clarity Laser, Thermage, and Venus Freeze.

My husband and I live on the beach and enjoy being active with our dog Fenway.

Vanessa Garlough, Master Esthetician

I received my basic aesthetic license at Bellus Academy of El Cajon in 2002. I have always been more interested in the medical side of aesthetics, so I went back to Bellus Academy of Poway in 2010 to complete my master aesthetic certification. Since July 2011, I have been providing master esthetician services at Beatitude.

I am trained and certified in crystal and crystal-free microdermabrasion, HydraFacial, SilkPeel, Oxygen Facials, DermaFrac and LED Therapy as well as body shaping with VelaShape, and Venus Freeze.

Through Beatitude, I have become specialized in post-laser, acne, melasma, and ethnic skin treatments. I have extensive product knowledge of all the lines we carry including ZO Medical, ZO Skin Health, Skin Medica, Revision Skin Care, Regenica, Oxygenetics, and Glo Mineral Make-Up.

I am a native San Diegan. I am fluent in Spanish. My husband and I enjoy spending time with family and our dogs Honey and Jack.

Patient Stories Dr. Chang has an eye for symmetry and aesthetics. I went in for a consultation to have fillers under my eyes. Instead I was educated on my facial anatomy. I agreed to some fillers in my forehead and cheeks instead and could not be more pleased with the outcome.
