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!

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character. That is the goal of true education.” -MLK⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Before going into private practice one of my most favorite jobs was being full time faculty as a professor of dermatology at UCLA 📚 🤓⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Teaching the dermatology residents and medical students was the experience that made me fall in love with teaching. And that’s why I use social media to continue to teach dermatology those who love skin care 🤍 ✨

Did you know...?🔔
The Picosure laser is used to treat hyperpigmentation, melasma and brown spots. It can also be used for skin rejuvenation. ✨
This laser is the fastest laser on the market. It fires at a Pico second which is a 😱trillionth😱 of a second.
What that means is that there is a photo acoustic vs a photothermal effect in the skin. There is no dissipation of heat, which means there is a lower risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmention making it safe to use in darker skin types.🤩

Happy Saturday my beauties! 🤍

During these times, facials may not be an option... but when they are, it’s one of the best things you can do for your skin to reduce break outs and for potent anti-aging effects. 🙌

hydrafacial provides medical grade exfoliation snd infusion of antioxidants and anti-aging actives which leaves skin healthy, nourished and hydrated.

Radiesse is a stimulant filler that is used for hand rejuvenation. ✨
Results last 2 years and make the hands appear less skeletonized. With age and weight loss often times veins and tendons show thru thin skin in the backs of the hands. Make sure the age of your hands match the age of your face 🤍.

With the daily grind and nonstop hustle, it's important to take a moment for yourself everyday. 🙌
For me this means going to the beach, smelling the saltwater, and hearing the ocean! It really puts me in my zen. ✌️
Yoga also keeps me in a good head space because it drowns out the nose of everyday life and centers me back to my happy place within. 🧘‍♀️

Thermafrax is when we combine Thermage and Fraxel to tighten the skin. 🤩
This works well for the lower face, neck and under eye area. Stimulating collagen by two different mechanisms gives results that are next level.👏

Many patients come in asking how they can smooth a “pebbly” chin!😱
As we get older, the dermis and subcutaneous layers of the skin thin. This can make the chin appear dimpled or with an orange peel texture. 😅 Botox can help smooth the mentalis muscle which helps.
This patient is getting filler to address volume loss on the chin to help smooth it out. 💉
Lasers can also help address this issue. 💥
Sometimes, there are several options that can address the same concern! Often they each have a different mechanism of action. Which one you or your provider choses will depend on your anatomy and concerns.🙌

Want to tighten lower face laxity. Thermage is what u want! 💥
Guess what?! There is no downtime or pain and only one treatment is needed. 🙌
This device uses energy in the from 𝕣𝕒𝕕𝕚𝕠𝕗𝕣𝕖𝕢𝕦𝕖𝕟𝕔𝕪 to stimulate collagen cross linking and collagen synthesis. This is why it's able to lift, tighten and pull up on the jowels and lower face without surgery. 😱
Why wouldn’t you try it? Invest in yourself my beauties. You deserve it.🤍
