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, a nurse practitioner and a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon 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 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, and 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 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 concern.”

"After spending thousands of dollars on doctors who could not even remember our child's name, we were frustrated. Finding Doctor Morgan was a gift. His approach was insightful, refreshing, and individualized. He cared more about the needs of our daughter, than pushing a "one treatment plan for all" agenda. Instead of trying to shove us out of his office for the next client, he took time to really listen to us. He returned emails, filled last minute prescriptions, and returned panicked phone calls. A doctor with this care and attention to your child is rare in the autism field. You will encounter many physicians who will make big promises, but will never take the time to walk the journey with you. Dr. Morgan not only walks with  you, but is a guide down the long road."
