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!

I love VBeam because it targets redness caused by rosacea, broken capillaries, acne scars and flushing. It also gives the skin a flawless glow once the redness is gone that lasts for months. 💫 💫 #vbeam #flawless #acnescars ...

Happy Monday my beauties! Raise your hand if your crows feet bug ya! Crows feet are the lines that radiate outward and laterally from the eye. This beauty in her 20s is getting preventative Botox to keep the area smooth while still being able to be expressive with her eyes. #crowsfeet #botox #mondaymood ...

If you missed my segment on @foxla’s Good Day LA where I served as a medical expert discussing tips to prevent “Maskne” here’s the info:

Clean skin twice a day with a liquid fragrance free cleanser, wash fabric masks every day and avoid detergent with fragrance or perfumes. Avoid dryer sheets and fabric softeners as these can irritate the skin. Keep makeup light or don’t wear it at all as the humidity under the mask can increase acne causing bacteria. If you have sensitive skin, disposable paper masks are better. If you have oily, acne prone skin cloth masks are better. Breathable, natural fabrics are best. 100% cotton masks are recommended. Avoid polyester, rayon and linen masks. 😷 #maskne #healthyskin #maskacne
