In this soothing section, you’ll find the best local places—from splendid spas to chic salons—to renew, refresh and rejuvenate body, mind and spirit.


Turner Medical Arts’ newest physician is here to make you look and feel more beautiful and confident than ever

With the goal of offering patients the very best care in all areas of health, beauty and wellness, Turner Medical Arts has assembled a topnotch team of esteemed professionals who are true experts in their fields. First to join the team is Allison Pontius, MD who brings her extensive experience and specialized expertise in facial injections to Turner Medical Arts, furthering the practice’s reputation as the premier destinations for surgical and non-surgical treatments and wellness solutions for women and men on the Central Coast.


Master Injector and Anti-Aging Expert Dr. Allison Pontius is a tripleboard-certified physician specializing in Facial Plastic Surgery, Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, and Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine. For the past 15 years, she has dedicated her career to maximizing facial beauty through non-surgical, minimallyinvasive injections with neuromodulators and fillers. Her unique full-face rejuvenation approach creates seamless facial beauty and harmony.

“Beauty is a balance. We want the filler to be undetectablewhere all we see is the beauty of the face. To do this requires a full-face assessment and treatment plan."

“My definition of beauty is having healthy, glowing skin and all the proportions of the face in harmony."

After 18 years practicing in New York, California native Dr. Pontius is thrilled to return to the West Coast, bringing her expertise in injectables to Turner Medical Arts.

"When I look at a face, I ask myself how can I make it more beautiful. How can I improve on their facial features. My goal is not to totally change the way a patient looks. I want them to look like the best version of themselves."

– Dr. Allison Pontius

“We are here to help women and men as they age feel, look and, most importantly, function at their best – and we approach this with an ideal balance of science-backed knowledge and warmth.” – Dr. Duncan Turner

REGARDLESS of the stage of life you’re in, you deserve to look and feel your best, which is why at Turner Medical Arts, “aging gracefully” means staying ahead of the aging process to improve health and well-being from the inside out.

Dr. Duncan Turner and his team of esteemed professionals, including gynecologists, board-certified plastic surgeons, women’s health nurse practitioners and weight-management counselors, take a comprehensive approach to anti-aging, sexual health and plastic surgery to treat the whole patient, not just a particular concern. Offering the most cutting-edge surgical, noninvasive and minimally-invasive procedures and wellness solutions, conveniently located on Coast Village Road in Montecito, Turner Medical Arts utilizes the latest innovations and technologies to help women and men reach new levels of health and happiness in order to live their best lives.

Bone Score is a new tool that provides physicians with enhanced insight into bone quality and bone density. The procedure, available at Turner Medical Arts and other area clinics, is a quick, radiation-free, in-office measurement involving a small, acupuncture-like tip that passes through the skin to press against the shinbone. A sensor records the softness of the bone and outputs a simple score. To find a doctor or learn more, go to bonescore.com.
