*”I am extremely thrilled with the results.”

I had the Ulthera process on my face and neck two weeks ago today. I am extremely thrilled with the results. I didn’t think it was painful. There were only 2 areas on the left side of my forehead that I did feel a little tinge, but it only lasted a second. In fact I was so engrossed in the background music that I almost fell asleep. No big deal! I would definitely do this again in a heartbeat. My husband noticed right away when I returned home from having the procedure done. A friend that I haven’t seen in 2 months noticed something different right away. She wanted to know what I did to my face. She said I look refreshed and younger.

*“I want to thank you all!”

“Dear Doctor and Staff,

As usual I became a worry “Wart” and lost my cool. I want to thank you all, especially you Doctor for being so cool and right 100%. I learned a real lesson this time! Please thank you all for being so nice.”

*“Incredibly Pleased”

“I am sooooo incredibly pleased with my first Botox and Juvederm experience! I feel and look amazing and I have been telling EVERYONE!!!! Can’t wait to come back! ”


*“Thank you so much for my face – it truly means the world to me.”

“Thank you so much for my face – it truly means the world to me. As we age and time goes by, sometimes we men do not really understand that there are options for keeping our ‘younger looking’ face. Age sort of creeps up on you and you think you are just going to have to accept it. Honestly, that can be depressing. Dr. Nowak’s artistic hand has helped me tremendously. My eyes are settling in and I look and feel so much better about myself! I am forever grateful. THANK YOU.”

“I would change nothing, I was visiting another doctor for about 7 months before Dr.Nowak and I must say for the first time I felt like the DR knew what he was talking to me about. He really paid attention to my issue and has alot of ideas and options for me to take care of my problem and the staff very nice and lovely ladies, great customer service it felt really good to be there. Thank you all and Dr.Nowak. I will see you next month!”

*“Dr. Nowak easily took 10 years of wear and tear off of my face, and added endless happiness and gratitude to my spirit!”

“I quickly went from looking old, tired, and sad…to young, vibrant and happy. The gratification was immediate, the process was beyond easy and affordable, and the results are long lasting. My first response? “Oh my gosh, why didn’t I do this sooner?!” Friends and family response? “You look amazing! What’s different?! Dr. Nowak easily took 10 years of wear and tear off of my face, and added endless happiness and gratitude to my spirit!”

*“I saw the Ultherapy segment on the News and immediately called for a consultation”

“Dear Dr. Nowak and staff,

I had been talking about getting a face lift for ten years until I watched that procedure on one of those medical channels.
I realized that wasn’t going to happen, so I opted for growing old gracefully. Well, that didn’t happen either.

I saw the Ultherapy segment on the news and immediately called for a consultation. After meeting with Dr. Nowak and his staff,
I scheduled a treatment for Ultherapy to tighten the face and neck, and Thermage to lift the eyelid area and plump up the delicate skin aound the eyes.

I am so pleased with the results, and excited to know that it is only going to get better as the months go by.

A few weeks later, I had a liquid face lift to fill in the lines on my face, plump up my cheeks, lift the corners of my mouth and fill out my jaw line.

Dr. Nowak is so skilled and gentle at what he does that I had absolutely no pain, during or after the procedure. I am loving the results!

Dr. Nowak and his staff are well informed, caring, professional and helpful. I feel very fortunate that my first experience with a Dermatologist was the very best.

Thank you so much for a younger me, and that spring in my step.”

*“I started with the Fractional CO2 Laser, which I was delighted with. It took away all the age spots and discoloration”

When I first walked through the doors of Nowak aesthetics, I was interested in getting information on the procedure Thermage.

Both Dr Nowak and his assistant Mayte talked with me about my concerns on that first appointment. I told them that I really didn’t
want a face lift but I wanted to help minimize or get rid of my double chin and jowls at my jawline, the lines around my mouth and the sagging and overall look of my skin on my face and neck. I am 55 years old and was feeling it.

After that first consultation, I was advised on a couple of procedures that could help me in achieving that final look I was hoping for, looking 10 years younger.

I started with the Fractional CO2 Laser, which I was delighted with. It took away all the age spots and discoloration I had in my face, neck and chest. This treatment also minimized the lines around my eyes and mouth and tightened up the neck and face skin. This procedure alone took years off my face and neck, leaving my skin looking like I had that young glow back I hadn’t seen in years.

I went back about a month later to get rid of the double chin and jowls I so hated. I went in for the new procedure, ultherapy in combination with the acculift.

Not only did the ultherapy help with my jowls it also made my neck even look younger and more firm. I’m so glad I had the acculift done at the same time because The end result was amazing, gone was my double chin and my jaw line was reversed back ten years or more.

The last procedure I had done was fillers around my mouth area to recreate the fullness I had lost years ago.

To help you get an idea on the results of these procedures, I was at a seminar given by Dr. Nowak every month and a lady asked me how old I was. I told her 55 and she said she thought I was in my thirties!!! I was just hoping for 10 years so to hear the comment that I looked in my thirties was so exciting for me.

Dr Nowaks office and staff exceeded all my expectations. They gave me a plan that would achieve my highest expectations without surgery. The office treats you like family by treating you with the up most care. I highly recommend all the procedures and of course, Dr. Nowak and his staff.

*“I had the CO2 fractional laser treatment and I have to tell you I never thought my face could show so much improvement”

“If your nervous let me set your mind at ease!! Dr. Nowak’s and his staff have to be the best doctor’s office I have ever been in, bar none. The staff have to be the some of the kindest people I have ever met and once you see Dr. Nowak you have his total attention. No rushing to get to the next patient like in most offices.

Approximately eight months ago I had the CO2 fractional laser treatment and I have to tell you I never thought my face could show so much improvement. Like so many other baby boomers I did the baby oil-iodine thing on my whole body to get that perfect tan and I am very fair skinned. Big mistake, hindsight is great(or maybe not so much). Bottom line is my face later in life became very wrinkled and dry. Dr. Nowak suggested I do the CO2 Fractional Laser to minimize the deep lines and fine wrinkles on my face. I figured what do I have to lose?

There is actually no down time but your face does look as though it as been sun burned(just like the old days) so I stayed in 3-4 days. Not because I had to but I really didn’t want anyone to know I was actually having this done. Dr. Nowak had told me my face would continue to improve up to six to nine months. I was very skeptical about that part of it. It did happen just as he said. I had a very deep line on the left side of my face which is now a fine line and a small scar under my right eye which doesn’t even show anymore. The medium to fine lines are all but gone and also the color in my face has changed. My face was very pale before the procedure and now it has a rosy hue to it. I just look so much younger without having to go through any cutting or horrible down time. If you just want to look a natural younger but not fake results that a face lift gives, this is definitely the procedure for you.

I am so happy with Dr. Nowak and his staff that I have recommended several people that have in fact had procedures done and not one of them has anything but good things to say and are so much happier having gotten that little thing that bugs them about themselves taken care of. Thank you Dr. Nowak and to all of your staff as well.”

Dr. Nowak is extremely caring and listens to what his patient is telling him. He is very knowledgeable and doesn’t offer false hope.

*“Not Only Was it PAIN FREE, but Also Relaxing!”

Thank you very much for the wonderful and caring treatment I received recently when I came to have my CPT Thermage Treatment. As you know I was very apprehensive about doing Thermage again after having the full face and eye treatment two years ago because of the pain involved during the procedure. While I LOVED the smooth, tight, beautiful skin as a result of that Thermage procedure, I did not like the pain involved and it was quite a dilemma in considering future treatments.

I was so skeptical that the procedure could be done pain-free, so much so, that even while driving on my way to have it done again a few weeks ago I almost canceled out of fear. Well, am I glad I overcame my fear and went through with the CPT Thermage. It really was PAIN-FREE!!! In fact, not only was it pain-free, but the vibration was relaxing and felt a bit like a massage!! Amazing!

So now I can have my cake and eat it too which we middle age woman rarely have. My skin is bright, smooth, and tight and everyone tells me I look so healthy and great! Thanks again Dr. Nowak you and your team are truly wonderful.”

*“My Family Dermatologist for Life!”

“I live in Coronado, Ca. and choose to visit Dr. Eugene Nowak, a board certified dermatologist in East Lake, (Chula Vista, Ca) quite frequently. His office is so beautiful, it rivals anything in Beverly Hills. The warm soft colors, the fountain and most importantly his friendly staff. I first went to see Dr. Nowak about my moles, my son’s small bumps on his arms, and other dermatological concerns. I immediately took a liking Dr. Nowak’s calm demeanor, he’s patience. He listens, he’s warm and friendly. He has a wonderful bed-side manner. AND you don’t have to wait YEARS to get an appointment.

I then quickly learned he has procedures that make this 40-something yr-old look and feel better. I got Fraxel laser treatments, to give me better-looking skin, Botox to get rid of my lines in my forehead, and other beauty treatments that will stay between me and Dr. Nowak. Sh sh…
His prices are competitive… Just call any Spa in La Jolla, and compare prices, and you’ll see. Weather you have a medical need for a Dermatologist or want prettier skin, to get rid of your lines, or a smaller waist, go see Dr. Nowak! You’ll like the results, but best of all you’ll like your Dr.!

I feel safe enough with this doctor to entrust my own child with him, I can whole heartedly recommend the same for you! He’ll be my Family Dermatologist for Life!

*“The Best Choice I’ve Made For Myself Ever!”

“Let me start by saying, I have never been to a dermatologist in my life. I guess I always (and still believe) that money can be better spent on other things. I am now nearly 55 years of age and did the procedure known as therma lipo on my arms.

This was the best thing I have ever done for me.

Prior to this I would not wear short sleeves even in very hot temperatures. I have always had arms that do not look normal for my body size. If I lost weight it would not come from my arms, if I lift weights they got larger.

. My kids are now grown, and I felt it was time to do something for me. This was by far the best choice

I’ve made for myself ever. I now can go sleeveless if I want to. No more giant arms, and no scars. No one at
work even knows I did anything. Only took one day off work, (the day of the procedure).

I would do this again in a heartbeat…I recommend this to everyone who has a problem with what they see in the mirror. Don’t wait until your 55, but if you are, do it now.


*“I can’t tell you how happy I am!!!”

“I had a filler treatment last night on my smile lines and under my eyes. I can’t tell you how happy I am!!! I can’t stop looking in the mirror. I don’t know why I didn’t do something like this sooner! ”


*“Tremendously Happy!”

“Dr. Nowak and his staff at Nowak Aesthetics are my skin’s angels.

I first went in to his office a few months ago in tears over some skin issues I was struggling through. The most troubling one was a tattoo infection. I was healing from the second session of a very large tattoo that covers my back. During the healing it got infected somehow, which grew to an excruciating pain all over my back. On top of the pain, I was absolutely terrified that this huge and very personal tattoo was getting messed up and I was scared that I had disfigured my body forever.

I realized that most dermatologists deal with REMOVING tattoos, and probably cringe when they see people get new ones, but I love mine and I wanted it to heal as beautifully as possible so I could be proud to display it when it’s finished. I desperately needed someone to tell me that somehow everything was going to be ok. Dr. Nowak did exactly that. He was gentle and kind, and thorough with his treatment. He prescribed me the medicines and ointments I needed to heal and prevent future bacterial infections in the area. Most of all he just calmed me down and let me know that I was in good hands.

Dr. Nowak asked me to come back every couple of weeks so he could check on me while I was healing. That area is completely healed now and I am going to have the final touches done on my tattoo in a few weeks. I will continue seeing Dr. Nowak until my tattoo is completely done though, to make sure everything is healing as it should.

I learned I could trust Dr. Nowak’s expertise so I brought two of my other skin issues to his attention. The first, I had been struggling with persistent and unexplainable breakouts on my face and neck. I had visited numerous aestheticians for purifying/cleansing/hydrating facials and none of them helped the problem. I was told it was “hormonal” and untreatable by many aestheticians. BUT now that my skin is in Dr. Nowak’s hands my face is finally completely clear and my skin looks incredible! This has improved my confidence tremendously and helped me feel like myself again.

My last skin issue was one that started a couple years ago when I used someone else’s boxing gloves at the gym and got a wart on my hand as a result. That one little wart grew and spread and resisted ALL over the counter medications. In fact, the treatments I bought at the store only made it grow and spread more. I visited 2 different dermatologists 3 times each to treat the area and they both gave up after the third time, telling me I would just have to wait until my body cured it on my own. I felt so helpless and self-conscious about the hideous growth on my hand that I’d cover it with a band-aid every time I’d go out around people. I told Dr. Nowak about it and he looked at me and said, “Don’t worry, we’ll treat it until it’s gone.” And that’s all I wanted to hear from a doctor. I just wanted someone to say, “We won’t give up on you. We’ll find a solution,” and Dr. Nowak was the first dermatologist I visited that said that to me. Since then we’ve been treating it both with freezings and an ointment, and although it’s still persistent and not completely gone, it has definitely decreased in size and I’m continuing to visit Dr. Nowak until it’s gone altogether.

I am tremendously happy with Dr. Nowak’s office and have been treated with respect by his kind and friendly staff every time I’ve visited. I feel so relieved to know that I have him to look after me. And I’m looking forward to learning about more of their services and /skin-care-products-san-diego/ for maximizing skin health”


*“Best Dermatologist & Staff!”

“I have had a few procedures done with Dr. Nowak. He is such an artist with fillers and very gentle and kind. His staff is #1. Very professional and nice. I would not hesitate going for more treatments with Dr. Nowak and highly recommend him to my family and friends.”


*“The Best Dermatologist in San Diego!”

“Dr. Nowak hands down is the best dermatologist in San Diego. He has a great bedside manner, works with the latest technology, and really cares about his patients. His staff is great to work with and he really is honest about letting you know what you need, or don’t need.”


*“My skin looks tighter!!”

“At 31 years old I was already considering Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) for my puffy droopy eyes.
I always look tired but I was nervous about getting any kind of surgery. I heard about Thermage and Ulthera and decided to do it.
3 months later, I’m happy with the results and I can’t believe how immediately after the procedure my crows feet / wrinkles were almost completely gone. My skin looks tighter!!”

*“Dr. Nowak is an artist”

“I had thermalipo done by Dr. Nowak. I am so pleased with the results. I had my mid section done,and my arms, At my age (over 40) no matter what I did, the many diets, exercise, different “gadgets” ie melting belts,plastic suits,pills and shots. My mid section and bat wings would not go away. I came to the conclusion by reading many books and magazines that it may be genetics. Not to mention the fact that my body started to look like a few of my aunties on my fathers side of the family LOL (love you). I cant leave out the fact that I MAY be perimenopausal.. I would put on a lovely dress and all I can see is my big stomach, and my flabby arms. Now I look awesome in dresses, tank tops. shorts sleeves, even pants!!! Dr. Nowak is an artist. when it comes to this type of body sculpting,He takes pride in his work. Everyone in his office including Dr. Nowak made me feel so comfortable and answered any and all my questions I highly recommend Dr. Nowak. I’m still going to exercise like I always did. That way I can LOOK and BE HEALTHY. Thank You Dr. Nowak!!!”

*“Some friends just say “Wow!””

“My husband tells me I look like I am in my late 40’s. My husband has told me I look much younger than him.
My butcher has followed me down the aisle at the store because he saw me and said “is that her? She looks so much younger…
The weight, you just look younger every time I see you.”
A friend I haven’t seen in 3 years saw me at the mall. She said” Is that you? Wow! What have you done.. you look so good!”
People that I see every weekend just seem to gaze at me! They say “How do you get younger looking?”
I have lost weight and colored my hair but with this procedure it all comes together very nice.
Some friends just say “Wow!”.”
