Our patients benefit from our physicians’ skill in harnessing the precision and power of lasers to perform delicate procedures involving facial plastic surgery, vascular birthmarks and malformations, and other conditions such as acne, rosacea, psoriasis and skin cancers.

Most procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis at the clinic, which is located on the university campus in Irvine.
