Vitality Medical Laser & Skin Clinic is owned and operated by Celia Remy, M.D.P.C.  Dr. Remy began her career with UC Davis Medical Center holding two positions as Medical Director for a child abuse clinic and as a pediatrician with specialty interest in pediatric dermatology. This work piqued her interest in laser technologies and led her to study non-surgical aesthetic reconstruction techniques. She applied this knowledge in the treatment of scars, wound healing, tissue regeneration and non-surgical reconstruction for injuries or trauma to the face. She studied laser treatments extensively as she developed her expertise in assessment and treatment of burns, wounds and traumatic injury.  This led her to pursue training in advanced aesthetic treatments, where the overlap allowed Dr. Remy to bring a fresh and unique perspective to the field of cosmetic medicine.

Dr. Remy works with laser engineers to refine and improve treatment effectiveness and utilize combinations of developing technologies to get the best results possible. She is a certifying instructor for physicians and nurses learning laser technology and advanced sculpting techniques.

Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Northern California

 3835/3837 J St.  |  Sacramento
916-456-0400  |

Dr. Kilmer leads a team of five board-certified dermatologists and a nurse practitioner at her thriving Sacramento practice, where she is dedicated to investigating new and improved uses for lasers in skin care. “We are an innovative practice; we really are on the forefront of laser research,” says the doctor, whose practice has been the site for numerous FDA clinical trials.

Dr. Kilmer and her colleagues are also recognized for treating wrinkles using the latest and greatest in injectables and fillers. When it comes to injectables Dr. Kilmer touts technique as a vehicle for success. “This is an art, patients should consider the experience and skill of a physician prior to undergoing treatment.” Noting that unnatural, frozen features often result from too much of a good thing, she promotes a “less is more” philosophy, whose patients attest to looking like themselves, only younger. Dr. Kilmer says that an understanding of placement, wrinkle depth and facial contours is essential, as is an innately artistic eye. “Whether we are filling lips or wrinkles, treating volume loss at the temples, chin or cheekbones, or re-creating structure at the lateral corners of the mouth to give lips an upturned appearance, results are extremely TECHNIQUE DEPENDENT. Our expertise is in the art of using the various fillers to best improve facial contours and turn back the hands of time.”

Her practice has the full spectrum of laser procedures known to diminish fine lines, scars, brown spots, unwanted hair, blood vessels and even tattoos. “Lasers are very job specific - one type cannot treat every problem. It takes training, expertise and artistry to determine which laser is best suited to any given problem and luckily we have virtually every device available which allows us to pick the best option for each individual concerns.”
