Certified physician assistant specializing in cosmetic & aesthetic dermatology

Living in Los Angeles, we are constantly compared to the “aesthetic ideal”.  What most people don’t know, however, is that this can vary widely from person to person.  When non-surgical cosmetic procedures first reached mass audiences, there was a cookie-cutter response to everyone’s desire to look younger: let’s fill up these lines, stop all wrinkling, and get rid of every pigmentation issue.  Today, we have more advanced techniques to help soften wrinkles and even out skin tone that is tailored to each individual.  What works for one person may not necessarily be the best treatment for another.


My philosophy is to develop a conservative yet comprehensive approach that addresses all the patient’s needs.  By working slowly and layering in procedures, the patient can achieve a more natural look.  From the 25-year-old who wants to get rid of sun damage from being burned one too many times to the 60-year-old who still wants to look 60 - “just a better-looking 60” - we will come up with a plan that we can work on together.
