As the largest organ of the body, conditions that affect the skin can have a profound impact on both your appearance and your health. Cosmetic Laser Dermatology of San Diego understands the intrinsic value of maintaining the highest level of health for your skin.

Acne Scars

Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego utilizes a range of state-of-the-art laser technology and custom treatment options to reduce acne scars for our patients.


Acne is the most common skin condition in America, affecting over 40 million men, women, and teenagers.


Characterized by brown patches, melasma is a common skin condition that usually affects the cheeks, nose, forehead, chin, and upper lip.

Seborrheic Keratosis

Seborrheic keratosis (SK) is a harmless skin growth that often appears on your skin as you age.

Birthmarks, Freckles, and Port Stains

Birthmarks are benign irregularities on the skin that can appear anywhere on the body.

Skin Cancer

More Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer each year than all other cancers combined. With early detection, however, the disease can be treated.

Nevus of Ota

Individuals with Nevus of Ota have increased amounts of melanin in and around the eyes, resulting in unsightly hyperpigmentation.

TotalTat³ – Tattoo Removal

Laser tattoo removal techniques can remove your unwanted body art safely and with minimal side effects. We offer our own proprietary TotalTat³ technique, which is a combination of 3 different lasers to remove tattoos more thoroughly and in fewer sessions than a basic tattoo removal treatment. Even stubborn inks can be removed with this approach!

Pearly Penile Papules (PPP)

Pearly penile papules are small, dome-shaped bumps that can appear on the sulcus or around the corona of the penis.

Actinic Keratosis/Pre-Cancerous Lesions

Pre-cancerous lesions affect nearly 60 million people in the United States. If left untreated, these lesions can develop into skin cancer.


Rosacea, a skin condition characterized by facial redness, swelling, and flushing, is a common issue that affects nearly three million Americans each year.

Gummy Smile Reduction

An overly-gummy smile can lower your confidence and have a negative affect on your smile aesthetics, but it can be corrected with simple, non-invasive treatment options.

We offer treatments for a wide range of conditions to help all our patients achieve an optimal degree of health and beauty.

Acne is a common condition we address in patients of all ages. Breakouts can be both physically and emotionally painful, but there are effective treatments today to keep pimples at bay so you can enjoy brighter, healthier skin. We also treat the scarring left behind by acne, using a combination approach that produces excellent results for many of our patients.

Stubborn, chronic conditions like rosacea and melasma cannot be cured, but they can be managed through cosmetic procedures designed to reduce visible symptoms. Laser and light treatments are effective in keeping the discoloration associated with both of these conditions to a minimum. We can also treat visible facial veins that are common in patients with rosacea.

Some patients may not have a skin condition, but an imperfection they would like to eliminate. Birthmarks, freckles, and port wine stains can affect your appearance and your self-confidence. Old tattoos can also become an eyesore and source of embarrassment. With more than 50 laser and light devices at our disposal, we are uniquely qualified to handle all your skin concerns with targeted treatments that are both safe and effective.

Trust your skin to the experts in skin conditions and concerns. Cosmetic Laser Dermatology is equipped and prepared to help you meet all your needs and goals.
