I earned my Medical Degree from UC Irvine and completed my residency in Dermatology at UCLA. Upon completing my residency, I joined the faculty at UCLA as a Clinical Professor in Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. I then went on to complete advanced fellowship training in Mohs Micrographic Surgery at UC Davis and Laser and Cosmetic Dermatology at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Northern California with world-renowned laser expert, Dr. Suzanne Kilmer. After fellowship, I joined the faculty at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Northern California where I have remained active in clinical trials and have been on the forefront of the latest advances in aesthetics and dermatology. As an Orange County native, I currently enjoy being a Dermatologist in Newport Beach, CA.
My areas of expertise include cosmetic dermatology with a focus on injectable neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin), as well as dermal fillers (Juvederm, Voluma, Volbella, Vollure, Sculptra, Restylane, Belotero, and Radiesse). In addition, I am highly-trained in the use of lasers and energy-based devices to treat all aspects of photoaging, including fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, brown spots and facial vessels. I offer a comprehensive approach to body contouring with the use of minimally-invasive procedures- Cellfina, ThermiRF, Coolsculpting, and Radiofrequency microneedling. In addition, I specialize in Dermatologic Surgery including Mohs, blepharoplasty, skin cancer excisions, sclerotherapy, surgical earlobe repair and cosmetic tattoo excisions.
I have lectured extensively and served as an instructor at numerous professional societies. Something I enjoy besides practicing Newport Beach Dermatology – authoring multiple peer-reviewed publications and book chapters and presenting my research at national and international professional society meetings.
Always wanting to continue my education, I am an active participant in clinical trials and pride myself with keeping up with the latest advances in lasers, cosmetic devices, and aesthetic In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends
