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!

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!

Why use a filter when you can use a filler?! My motto is high maintenance to be low maintenance which means by investing in your skin and performing treatments that keep the skin healthy then you can just get up and go without having to wear makeup. It’s true I spend 5-10 minutes each morning and night putting on skincare products but I don’t have to worry about wearing make up or covering anything up. I can get out of the shower, beach or pool and just go 💫💫💫 #aunaturale #makeupfree #mondaymood ...

Ghouls night out 💀Thank you @leaahhh_d and Z for hosting an amazing DEAD dinner. 🖤 I used my @qyksonic and @clarisonic with exfoliating polish by @zoskinhealth to remove this incredible makeup. Never sleep in your makeup my beauties because it increases inflammation and breaks down collagen to cause premature aging, acne, larger pores and blackheads. #butfirstskincare #ghoulsnightout #halloweencostumes ...

If you spend hours hunching over a computer or staring down at your phone, you've likely have “tech neck” which creates creases in your neck. Sculptra is what we use to fix this. It’s a stimulant filler that stimulates your skin to fill in neck creases. A small amount of Botox can help too but hyaluronic acid fillers should not be used in this area. #sculptra #techneck #neckcreases ...

Wanna know a secret? Most men are getting Botox. They just don’t tell you. It’s important not to feminize a mans face when injecting Botox. Less Botox is injected in the forehead so that he won’t get a “heavy brow”. Also male eleven lines are usually strong so this is where men need it most. I often do less on the crows feet for a more natural look. The face should look well rested and happy but never obvious that Botox was done. #brotox #botoxformen #maleskincare #botox ...
