Our Founder Marie Olesen of La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre and Medical Spa: Five Things You Need To Be A Highly Effective Leader During Turbulent Times.

Stay focused on your mission…do not let the uncertainties damage your core systems, in our case caring for patients with kindness and competence. With COVID safety protocols, we cannot care for the same number of people, so we had to develop new ways of caring for patients within our facilities safely and responsibly.

As part of my series about the “Five Things You Need To Be A Highly Effective Leader During Turbulent Times”, I had the pleasure of interviewing Marie Olesen, CEO of La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre and Medical Spa. Marie teaches and speaks internationally on the interrelated topics of patient satisfaction and business performance. She’s created two software companies to enable practices to define, deliver and monitor care touchpoints and measure patient satisfaction. The focus of Marie’s career has centered around two principles.

La Jolla Cosmetic Medical Spa Reviews (1798)

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Lauren was so sweet and very knowledgeable on the procedure being done. She was gentle and made the whole process go by fast. She eased a lot of my anxiety. I can't wait to come back.


Kara and her assistant Amy were really great, they were very professional but also very personable and friendly.


I am always satisfied when I come in. I continually see Shanna because she is amazing. She has so much experience and I always get the best results. She is an asset to your practice and I look forward to seeing her every time.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Brittany took the time to explain how Botox works, as it was my first time receiving it. The results are great for both the filler and the Botox!

BOTOX® Cosmetic

The entire staff was professional and very nice. Lauren's technique is excellent.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Lauren re-did my failed Botox at no charge and I am so far very pleased with the results.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Brittany was thorough and knowledgeable. She made me feel very comfortable through the process.

MedSpa Provider La Jolla , CA

Tummy Tuck

Great nurses and doctor.

Nova Thread

Because Kara did a great job and admin was accommodating in meeting me in the middle when we realized the quote I received before arriving wasn't accurate. I drive from LA so it would have been a wasted trip.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Khan did a great job with placement. [Single best thing is...] Always great customer service.


I appreciate that I was made comfortable during the procedure and that everyone was attentive to my needs and very caring. [Single best thing is...] I still haven't seen full results yet but the relative ease of the procedure would be the single best thing.

BBL Treatment

Brittany does a great job of making appropriate recommendations for my needs. I did a BBL treatment to correct skin marks that developed after a liquid nitrogen treatment from a dermatologist appointment at a different office I had done 2 months prior. The BBL treatment made great improvements in my skin pigmentation and areas I wanted to correct on my face. I appreciate her knowledge and guidance to help me improve my skin and achieve the goals I am after. [Single best thing is...] The BBL reduced the skin pigmentation marks created from a previous Liquid nitrogen treatment that occurred at a different office. It also addressed the redness and reduced sun spots in my skin overall.


Yes - I would say Coolsculpting is not the most comfortable of experiences, but the staff made the experience as pleasant as possible. There was little downtime and the results don't show up overnight, but within the past 2 weeks they have been looking great!

BOTOX® Cosmetic

I have been going to Lauren for several years for various procedures. She's always pleasant, professional and very thorough.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Brittany always takes the time to listen to what I want and need done for facial enhancements. She's amazing at what she does. I'm always happy with my outcome. [Single best thing is...] All my crows feet and facial lines disappearing.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

It is always a pleasure with Julia and all of the office staff. You never have to wait for an appointment and they see you within 5 minutes once you have arrived. [Single best thing is...] Lips!!!

Restylane Lyft®

Kara was informative, took her time and delivered the results I was looking for. My tear trophs are perfect now! I also received Botox with Julia who is amazing. This staff is great. The entire med spa made me feel comfortable about receiving treatment during this pandemic. They went above and beyond to ensure patient safety. My results are better than I expected!

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Kara is a perfectionist and takes meticulous steps to give me the right amount of injectables. She looks carefully before placing. And she is very honest! [Single best thing is...] Results were excellent!


The COVID procedures in place made me feel safe during my appointment. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I initially went in for CoolSculpting, however, Kara outlined a treatment plan that she felt would be better for me. She was very knowledgeable and I felt like she addressed my concerns in a very professional manner. [Single best thing is...] I've been wanting to do something about my double chin for years and I'm excited that I finally decided to do it. The whole team made me feel secure with my decision and calmed any anxiety I had about the procedure.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Atmosphere was so inviting and comfortable. From the minute I walked in my nerves were put to ease by Kara and the entire staff. This was my first time getting anything like this done and it was the most pleasant experience. One I look back on and I am so thankful I got to experience this way for my first time having a cosmetic treatment done. From the professional cleanliness procedures to the overall kindness and comfort, I made the right decision coming here. And my results are perfection! True work of art. Thank you. [Single best thing is...] Being comfortable. I always heard that you don't have to be in pain having facial fillers done and this is most definitely the case here.
