As Dermacare’s Medical Director, Dr. Birchall is a board-certified physician with more than 25 years of medical experience and more than a decade working with cosmetic treatments. He earned his medical degree from the University of Calgary’s Cumming School of Medicine and completed his residency at the University of Calgary’s Foothill Hospital. Unlike many other med spas, Dr. Birchall not only operates as the medical director, but he also treats patients everyday at both our Carlsbad and Rancho Bernardo offices. He says he feels lucky to have the opportunity to build long-lasting relationships with his patients, and his favorite part of coming to work everyday is seeing his patients smile when they look in the mirror for the first time after they receive a treatment. Dr. Birchall is a member of the American Society of Cosmetic Physicians, the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, and the Allergan Advisory Board. He achieved Black Diamond status for administering BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM® injections, being recognized among the top quarter of the Top 1% of more than 30,000 providers in the country. Additionally, Dr. Birchall has also been recognized as a Black Diamond provider for Fraxel® laser skin rejuvenation, a Top 25 Colorescience® Partner, a Top 100 provider for Sculptra® Aesthetic, and a Premier Partner for CoolSculpting. He is constantly researching and utilizing the latest technology to achieve the best possible results. When Dr. Birchall is not working, you can find him spending time with his family, being involved with his church, and of course, playing hockey.
