Boost your confidence at Moradi MD

Carlsbad Village residents and visitors can boost their confidence with high quality, ethically sound cosmetic procedures performed by welcoming professionals by simply walking through the doors at Moradi MD.

Moradi MD is the region’s leading cosmetic center headed by double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Amir Moradi. With two locations in Vista and Carlsbad offering the most advanced technology in the aesthetic industry, the center is expanding its reach to make access more convenient for North San Diego County clients. 

The Carlsbad location is situated perfectly in the walkable, beach-accessible Carlsbad Village neighborhood. Now complete with an additional aesthetician, the location can offer more treatments than ever before.

Clients have access to a wide variety of procedures including injectables, fillers, body contouring, facials and more – all perfected by Moradi professionals through its clinical studies program.  

Dr. Moradi and Moradi MD have been involved in FDA studies, retrospective studies and investigator-initiated studies with leading pharmaceutical companies in the medical aesthetic field. 

“We have access to medical grade equipment, which isn’t always the case for aestheticians elsewhere,” said Tiana Blackshear, the newest aesthetician at Moradi MD in Carlsbad. “It’s reassuring to know that we’re the first to test a new procedure and perfect it.”

Lulu Benjamin has been in the aesthetic industry for about 20 years, having spent the last three years as an aesthetician with Moradi MD. 

As aestheticians, both Lulu and Tiana are able to provide facials and body contouring procedures like CoolSculpting, which freezes fat off, and Vanquish, which uses radio frequencies to melt fat away and tighten. 

Lulu and Tiana specialize in providing a variety of facials at the practice, including the Fire and Ice Facial that reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and the Dermaplaning Facial which helps reduce the appearance of acne scars.

“We have a very large menu of different types of facials,” Benjamin said. Nurse practitioner Tatyana Tayts, who has been with Moradi MD for three years, performs the majority of the practice’s medical procedures in Carlsbad including injectables like BOTOX and Restylane, as well as laser treatments, skin resurfacing, feminine rejuvenation and more. 

Tatyana receives help from Hanna Dupre, a medical assistant at Moradi MD. Dupre will soon start her prerequisites to become a nurse practitioner like Tatyana in the cosmetic industry. 

Together the four enjoy the culture at Moradi MD, which they describe as family-oriented and accommodating to both patients and staff. 

“This practice is more patient-focused with an emphasis on ethics,” Tatyana said. 

Through consultations, staff learns the needs and wants of their patients to figure out exactly which procedure is best-suited for them. 

All four enjoy seeing how they boost their patients’ confidence through the procedures they perform, which is what led them to the cosmetic and aesthetic industry in the first place. “Boosting people’s confidence is a big part of what led me here,” Hanna said. “Seeing the difference it makes in people’s lives is very rewarding.”
