You At Your Best

M Beauty Clinic by Dr. Tess Helps Patients Feel Better Inside and Out

Beauty may be only skin-deep, but Dr. Tess Mauricio knows that a refreshed appearance can restore confidence and improve a patient’s general wellbeing. That’s why her philosophy at M Beauty Clinic by Dr. Tess is to look at the patient as a whole, not just the surface. “There are feelings and emotions involved when wanting to better how you look,” she shared. “And our staff genuinely cares about you looking and feeling better about yourself.”

M Beauty doesn’t just feel like a family, it is one – the executive team is comprised of Tess’s siblings. Her brother, Rick, is the registered nurse (RN) manager of the M Beauty Clinic in National City. Rick graduated from UCLA Nursing School and also obtained his MBA at SDSU. Her youngest sister, Angela, is currently the lead RN in the main clinic in Scripps Ranch. Her other sister, Cheryl, serves as the clinic’s accountant and overall manager. Cheryl obtained her MSBA with Accounting emphasis at SFSU. “We are a happy bunch and we frequently laugh and share hugs with our patients. Actually a lot of my patients are my friends on Facebook!” said Dr. Tess.


The welcoming environment is often noted by patients. “The staff is always friendly, pleasant, and professional,” said Lani, an M Beauty patient. “They create a very comfortable and family-like atmosphere. I honestly can’t think of anything that needs improvement!”

The M Beauty Clinic provides expertise and experience as well as a positive environment. “I am a board certified dermatologist from Stanford Medical School,” explained Dr. Tess. “This means that my medical education was specifically on the study of skin.” At M Beauty Clinic, she offers her world-renowned signature Time Machine ProcedureSM which takes years off without surgery, as well as a wide variety of non-invasive anti-aging, acne, skin tightening, body shaping, laser hair removal, and skin discoloration treatments. For chronic pain treatment, she personally performs regenerative stem cell therapy, which is done in conjunction with liposuction. She recently launched her own skin care product, Timeless MD by Dr. Tess. She has shared her knowledge via San Diego Living, Channel 6, Dr. Oz, Rachael Ray, The Talk, and The Doctors. She also produces The Dr. Tess Show, which airs weekly on GMA Pinoy TV, a Filipino channel. Dr. Tess revealed, “I treat many celebrities that refuse to get treated by anyone else because they said that they don’t trust other doctors who don’t look natural.”

Dr. Tess maintains the same philosophy for all her patients. “I wanted to build a practice where the everyday person can walk in and not be scared that our treatments are too aggressive or that I would inject too much filler,” she said. “I am conservative and my patients appreciate and respect that.”
