Monica Vidrio, Founder & Esthetician of Esthetics by Monica.

We are happy to announce that Esthetics By Monica has been selected as the Winner for the 2022 and 2023 Best of La Jolla Awards in the category of Skin Care Clinic. Monica Vidrio has over 15 years of extensive certifications in advanced esthetics and now offers monthly advanced training courses for other estheticians. She most recently has been asked to do speaking engagements for Face Reality Skincare monthly newsletter as well as prestigious colleges such as UCSD to speak on behalf of healthy skin and mental health initiatives. 


Monicas dream in creating her clinic is to combine everything shes learned from working in award winning day spas and medical clinics and the knowledge of studying psychology and reiki to create the atmosphere that provides real remarkable results and still have an environment that holds space for healing, love and retreat. She believes in healing the skin through a healthy lifestyle holistically and unconditionally loving ourselves.

We enhance the spa for a major sensory experience of essential oil smells, healing bi neural sounds, heated bed and healing touch. Our clinic offers products and treatments that actually work. We can have it all! I believe in this magic of life, and we can have a relaxing spa like atmosphere with results driven treatments.


Our clinic brings you the most cutting-edge devices at all times, such as the Procell Microchanneling Machine, Face Reality Acne Clinic, LED light therapy and Micro-Current machines. Monica was trained by world-renown YAKOV GERSHKOVICH in structural facelifts, lymph drainage, and emotional release in 2019 and continues to broaden her education in skincare. Her most recent training was in reiki level 1 and Procell Therapies. Each facial we include energy to help the process of releasing anything that no longer serves our higher good and help with the healing process of our skin. This is so much more than skin. We truly believe in healing our physical ailments at the root cause. Our acne program is what she is most passionate about, having gone through severe acne herself she has devoted half her life to healing skin. Our program delivers a high success rate through education on nutrition, supplements, products and treatments our acne program has proven to clear skin within 3-6 months. 

She passionately LOVES skincare and cannot wait to meet you!

Clients say it Better!

"Face Reality skincare has not only transformed my skin but also cleared it long-term. I suffered from severe cystic acne, hyperpigmentation, and deep acne scars. I have tried many acne treatments including accutane without much success. Even after the 1st treatment, my cysts and pigmentation were drastically reduced. "

"Monica and Lauren are skin experts!! Ive struggled w acne for years with some bad flare ups every once in a while. I started getting the acne facials in late Feb and by June I had the best skin of my life. 10000/10 recommend if you're looking to see results. Monica is super sweet and you can tell she is truly passionate about this work. Lauren is incredibly gentle and also super knowledgeable about skin. The new space is super cute, parking is easy to find and the facials are always relaxing."


"Monica is a skin magician! I have been getting her signature facials for years and she literally makes my skin GLOW! I highly recommend her."

"I just had the best facial I have ever had!!! I would recommend Monica to anyone! She is very knowledgeable of all skin types. I feel 10 years younger just walking out the door and that's pure magic!!!"
