Refined Services

I want my patients to look and feel their absolute best- at every age.  I focus on the improvement, enhancement and appearance of your skin, aesthetically, artistically and cosmetically.

My areas of expertise include cosmetic dermatology with a focus on injectable neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin), as well as dermal fillers (Vollure, Juvederm, Voluma, Sculptra, RestyLane Refyne, RestyLane Defyne, and Radiuses).

In addition, I am highly-trained in the use of lasers and energy-based devices to treat all aspects of photoaging including fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, brown spots and facial vessels. I offer a comprehensive approach to body contouring with the use of minimally-invasive procedures- Cellfina, Kybella, Cryolipolysis, RF Microneedling, Tumescent Liposuction and numerous energy-based devices including ultrasound and radio frequency for fat reduction. I also specialize in dermatologic and cosmetic surgery including Mohs Micrographic surgery, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and cosmetic excisions.

“Lip Augmentation and Botox are two of my most requested procedures, and are a simple way to achieve a more beautiful, youthful, yet natural, result.” – Stefani Kappel MD

Natural Results

The treatments that I perform address all aspects of overall skin health and changes with age that occur with each decade.  Each individual is unique, and should be treated based on his or her individual concerns and changes that occur with age.  By balancing harmony, artistry and anatomical differences, one can achieve beautiful results that are natural and allow one to look like the best version of themselves.

Daily Routine

Achieving and preserving healthy, youthful skin is a main concern for almost everyone as they age. A daily routine which incorporates the use of evidence-based anti-aging skin care products is very important.  In addition, regular use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen can assist greatly in the lessening of the unwelcome effects of premature aging and sun damage. The goal of skincare products is to reverse damage that has occurred and protect against further damage.  I am passionate about educating my patients regarding various smart skincare products that are backed by science to achieve overall skin health starting at the cellular and molecular level.
