Eco-MedSpa opens in San Francisco

07
Apr '08
The iconic Epi Center MedSpa celebrates its 10th anniversary with the opening of the country's first Eco-MedSpa in San Francisco in a completely renovated facility in the historic Union Square medical building at 450 Sutter Street.

The new facility is LEED certified and built entirely with sustainable materials, from recycled and FSC-certified wood, marble flooring and countertops, to the eco-paints and recycled fabrics.

The Eco-MedSpa is also energy efficient and conserves resources through its lighting, recycling, electronic medical charting, digital photography and water filters that eliminate the need for bottled water.

In explaining her decision to open the Eco-MedSpa, EpiCenter President and Co-founder Margaret Mitchell said, “to be first in something is not always the popular choice due to he risk of failure or fear of the unexpected.”

“Still, we have learned by being the first MedSpa, the first to introduce the PhotoFacial treatment, and first to perform laser hair removal in San Francisco with light that what seems only to be a dream becomes a reality the moment you begin working to make it happen,” Mitchell said.

To achieve a sustainable yet stylish construction the Epi Center MedSpa worked with some of the country's foremost leaders in green building and design.

Eric Corey Freed, founder of organicArchitect and author of Green Building and Remodeling for Dummies, ensured the Epi Center MedSpa conformed to the strict standards established by the U.S. Green Building Council.
