Featured Services


Botox is one of the best procedures to treat and prevent frown lines and crow’s feet.  These inevitable wrinkles are caused by repetitive muscle contractions from facial expression. The Botox will aid in a temporary reduction in that muscle activity. My injections are precise, gentle, and given with the smallest needles available which dramatically reduces any discomfort. 

Lip Injections

Lip augmentation is the most commonly requested treatment in our Newport Beach practice. This innovative procedure is performed using injectable fillers comprised of a natural substance that is found in the body- hyaluronic acid. We can lessen the effects of age or give genetically thin lips more natural volume. 

Laser Treatments

Our laser treatment targets aging and sun-damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into your skin to expedite your body’s remodeling of collagen. And since the laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, it leaves the surrounding tissue intact, which promotes very rapid healing.

What Our Clients say

I absolutely love the clinic. Super modern, chic and relaxing! The staff are so friendly, knowledgeable and helpful! Dr. Stefani is great!
She is a board certified dermatologist and she explained all my options. She is very conservative when it comes to her treatments and recommends exactly what you need, which I appreciated a lot! I came in today for skincare, loving the results already. Great overall experience, highly recommend it!

Lizzie T.

Dr. Kappel is the best! She's super personable and makes the entire experience very comfortable. Scheduling is very easy--they can always get me in before any event or when I need a touch-up. She does great work with Botox--making just the right tweaks based on what you want.

Justine M.

This was my first time with Dr. Kappel and I had the most positive experience. The office is extremely clean and modern and the staff is all extremely welcoming and positive. My friend recommended Dr. Kappel and I couldn't be happier. She talked at length with me in regards to the treatment I wanted and executed perfectly. I was also told up front how many units of Botox would be used as well as the price so I could agree before it was administered.  She is awesome with a needle and didn't hurt at all!

I would highly recommend Dr. Kappel to any of my friends or family! Thank you!

Sarah S.

Loveeeee my meeting with Stefani! I've asked about volume loss since I'm now in my thirties but was very hesitant to have fillers done. I'm very comfortable with her low and slow approach, not pushy whatsoever. Beautiful office, and helpful staff! Will be back again for a little touch up here and there.

Christine V.

I have been coming to Dr. Kappel for a few years now and cannot put into words how amazing she is! She really listens to her clients and provides the best solutions for them to help achieve the best results. So happy with my results and highly recommend her to everyone!

Wondering if you’re a candidate for a lip filler or lip flip? Based on every patient’s lip anatomy I can help my patients determine which procedure would be more effective. Lip filler adds volume to the lips, defines the lips and corrects asymmetry. Lip flip uses Botox to prevent the lips from curling in and thinning out while smiling. So lips stay full and pouty even when smiling. #lipfiller #lipflip #lipgoals #prettypout ...

Your makeup game will never be a 10 if your skincare game is a 2. 💁🏼‍♀️
Did you know that the average woman spends more on make up to cover up skin blemishes that would not exist if they spent the same amount on good skincare products. #foodforthought #butfirstskincare #skincaregamestrong

November means the busy travel season is officially here. Unfortunately air travel can strip your skin of it’s glow because of altitude and cabin pressure. So here are a few ways to keep your skin looking fresh and radiant.

1️⃣Pack less than 4oz of product so it’s not taken at security.
2️⃣Put on Hydrogel eye pads on for 30 min. I usually put them on during the airplane descent.
3️⃣Hydrators are a must!
4️⃣Keep eye, lip and hand serums handy.
5️⃣Don’t forget to drink tons of water before, during and after your flight.

Where will your travels take you this season? #travelseason #travelingskincare #skincareproducts #happytravels

Bye bye acne scars! 👋🏼 It’s Vbeam to the rescue for smooth and radiant skin. The best treatment for acne scars is lasers, but preventing acne in the first place is much better so scaring will not occur. To prevent acne it’s important to wash your face twice a day every day and especially after working out and before going to bed. Exfoliating is also important because it unclogs pores. Lastly don’t forget to use a toner for oil control to eliminate the bacteria. #acnescars #vbeam #clearskin #radiantskin ...
