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!

Annie K.

Dr. Kappel is beautiful and has a warm persona. She is patient, thorough and willing to address all your questions and concerns. Great bedside manner, created a pleasant experience. Will definitely return!

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!

Have an amazing weekend my beauties! ✨Even tho it’s technically still winter, the sun is shining snd you must protect your skin! 🌞

Not only on your face but your body arms and legs as well.

I take Heliocare ultra every day to protect my skin from the inside out and cover myself with sunscreen head to toe. Any zinc oxide 7% or higher is best.👍

On the day after NWD, I wanted to post this to remind everyone that EVERY DAY should be NWD.

This body had 2 natural pregnancies, 2 natural childbirths, breast fed 2 babies 18 months each and has been through it all. 💪

Working 80 hour weeks, working overtime, acing countless exams, hundreds of sleepless nights, while raising two kids and supporting my family....

I wake up at 5am every day, I work out, I eat clean and I take care of my body. This is me embracing my love for myself and ALL women. No woman should be ashamed of loving themselves and sharing that with the world.
Remember what a woman’s a body is capable of my strong courageous beauties 🤍✨

Before & After 🤩
PicoWay laser was used to treat this stubborn brown spot (Diagnosis: Solar lentigio) for this beauty.
Only one treatment was needed and the downtime included 1 week of some scabbing and bruising.
⚠️Please note it’s important to see a dermatologist for treatment of brown spots because often a clinical evaluation or biopsy is needed to rule out atypical or malignant pigmented lesions prior to proceeding with laser to ensure the lesion is benign.

Just because I’m a dermatologist doesn’t mean I don’t play in the sun. 🌞✨

I live on the beach and enjoy being outside!

Yes- I try to stay in the shade when I can. I also cover myself and my minis HEAD TO TOE in sunscreen everyday and reapply every 3 hours.

🌟I also take Heliocare ultra every day to protect my DNA from the harmful effects of the sun from within.

Do you have facial vessels, redness, or rosacea? 👀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It also has potent anti-aging effects and will give the skin a beautiful glow just ONE week after treatment which can last up to several years. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Downtime: ONLY 4-7 days of redness and swelling...but definitely concealable with a little tinted sunscreen and 💯% worth the results.
