LDI of Newport Beach: Schedule Your Visit Today

A face lift, neck lift, or eye lift traditionally required invasive techniques that can leave scarring and take time heal. With the newest laser techniques, the Laser & Dermatology Institute of California can improve skin pigmentation, texture, and the signs of aging with little or no recovery time. LDI was founded by Dr. Jacob Rispler, a board-certified dermatologist who has been developing and providing the most effective treatments since 1976. Our experienced team of dermatologists in Newport Beach use the newest laser and RF technologies in the industry to help you enjoy the coastal lifestyle that defines this beachfront community.

Request a free consultation at LDI, or call 888-585-3993, to schedule an appointment with our Newport Beach dermatologist at 20162 SW Birch St. #280.


Laser Skin Services

LDI has helped thousands of clients achieve smoother skin, even tone, and a more youthful appearance without surgery, injections, or fillers. Effective treatment for wrinkles, scarring, and sagging skin requires little recovery or down time. Improvements can begin in hours to weeks, while full effects might take months, but you can trust our Newport Beach dermatologist for:

Skin Resurfacing

Many times, wrinkles, scars, blotches, and acne can be treated by resurfacing the skin. Removing the skin surface layer by layer may sound extreme, but with lasers, targeted treatment can be performed as a simple procedure on the face, neck, hands, or chest. The scope of treatment depends on the size of the area; a doctor may use local anesthesia or, for a whole-face treatment, general anesthesia.

After the procedure, which involves vaporizing damaged skin cells, you might experience swelling or itching. Dryness and peeling is common five to seven days later while full healing can take up to three weeks; using sunscreen, moisturizer, and oil-free makeup can relieve irritation and aid healing.

Tattoo Removal

People seek tattoo removal for several reasons, which include:

  • Being tattooed while a teenager
  • A lack of planning
  • Their decision was impulsive
  • They don’t like how it looks
  • The tattoo doesn’t have the same meaning

The problem is: tattoo ink is intended to be permanent. It is injected deep in the skin and the ink particles are too large for the body to dispose of naturally. LDI employs a 532-nanometer picosecond laser that breaks up tattoo pigments with intense pulsed light. In fewer treatments, tattoos can be treated, while the laser is effective at removing darker, more stubborn ink colors such as blue and green, while addressing red, yellow, orange, pink, or black inks as well. We can adapt treatment to any skin tone in anywhere from one to as many as 10 sessions.

After laser treatment, the fragmented ink particles are removed by the immune system. The process can take several weeks to up to a year.

Wrinkle Treatments

Most often associated with aging, wrinkles take many forms. They may be thin lines on the surface or deep furrows. You may notice wrinkles start to develop at a younger age; as you get older, folds and grooves don’t spring back as easily after you smile, frown, or squint. Ultraviolet light, cigarette smoke, and alcohol can contribute to wrinkles. You can therefore protect your skin by avoiding known risk factors.

Hydration, moisturizer, and vitamins can help combat wrinkles. When prevention hasn’t had the desired effects and lines and wrinkles become a problem, you can depend on LDI for advanced laser treatments. In the past, Botox, dermabrasion, and fillers were more common; face lifts were too. Nowadays, laser treatment is the most common method of dealing with the effects of aging on skin.

Skin Tightening

Skin tightening treatments offered at LDI can correct skin with:

  • Sun damage
  • Reduced elasticity
  • Sagging
  • Wrinkles
  • Creases
  • Folds

The procedure uses a specific wavelength to heat the epidermis and deep collagen fibers. It can yield smoother, softer skin, and lift sagging skin as well. The same process can reduce eye bags, age spots, and acne scars. It may be used on the face, neck, and eyelids. Tightening loose skin without surgery, injections, or fillers can yield positive results with minimal discomfort and side effects, while client’s face shorter recovery times and can return to their daily activities quickly.

Acne and Acne Scarring Treatment

Acne is caused by clogged hair follicles. Oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria may fill the pores and cause them to enlarge, which can cause repeated injury and scarring. Whether you have raised hypertrophic/keloid acne scars, atrophic depressed scars, or dark spots left behind from acne, radio frequency laser treatment can help with virtually no downtime. You can resume your normal routine after treatment. In one or several treatments, the process can reduce scarring as well as pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. The number of treatments depends on your condition and an evaluation by your acne dermatologist. Fractionated RF lasers are commonly used for treatment; for cystic acne, an intense pulsed light laser may be used.

Spider/Varicose Vein Removal

Spider and varicose veins occur with age or due to sun exposure, hormonal changes, or injury. They are most common on the legs, while women or more prone to the formation of web-like red and blue patterns under the skin. Spider veins tend to progress over time. Caused by veins with weakened valves, accumulated blood, and weakened walls, spider/varicose veins can be addressed by taking measures to improve circulation. If exercise and walking don’t help, and your physician recommends spider vein removal, our dermatologist in Newport Beach can use a non-ablative or intense pulsed light laser to treat vascular lesions. Sometimes, visible veins disappear quickly, while others can take up to two weeks to fade.

Hyperpigmentation Services

Discolorations such as dark spots, freckles, sun spots, melasma, and rosacea are usually harmless. They can appear due to genetics or as a result of sun damage, trauma, or hormonal changes. When you decide on hyperpigmentation treatment, LDI can help determine the personalized treatment that is right for you. Lasers are highly effective for a range of skin pigmentation abnormalities. Depending on your condition, our Newport Beach dermatologist can use fractionated RF, intense pulsed light, acoustical, or 1064-nanometer lasers for treatment.

Benefits of Skin Rejuvenation


Whether you seek acne laser treatment or skin resurfacing, LDI treats each patient as an individual. We believe when it comes to skin care, a one-size-fits-all approach simply does not work. The benefits of our skin rejuvenation treatments include:

  • The latest laser and RF technologies and techniques
  • Treatment is less invasive
  • Treatments can be adjusted to patients’ individual needs
  • Patients can return to their normal schedule the next day
  • The process works with many different skin types
  • There is minimal discomfort and aftereffects
  • Laser technology can treat a wide range of skin conditions


Our Process

Since its inception, LDI has shaped its patient care model on Dr. Rispler’s dedication to personalized care. We always start with a free consultation to evaluate your condition and skin treatment needs. Several alternatives to going under the knife are available. Surgery is not required whether you want to reduce fine lines and deep wrinkles, improve skin texture, brighten your skin, or correct sun damage, red/brown spots, loose skin, bags, or crows’ feet.

We’ve also made it easier to schedule a consultation with our Newport Beach dermatologist. Call us by phone or fill out our simple request form with your name, phone, and email as well as a description of what you are seeking help with. At our office, the doctor will evaluate you and determine if treatment is required and what laser technology might yield the best results.


Top Skin Laser Options

LDI employs the latest, most advanced laser technologies to provide a complete range of skin treatment services. We use the following lasers:


The 1064 nm wavelengths can be used on all skin types and colors. Using the erbium isotope along with yttrium, aluminum, and garnet, a YAG laser uses non-ablative infrared light to penetrate the top layer to treat pigmented and vascular lesions below.


With radio frequency energy, a series of micro pins are created while heating deeper layers. Excess heat stimulates the growth of collagen, which can result in improved skin texture and complexion over the following weeks and months.


Uses intense pulsed light to treat pigmented and vascular lesions including spider veins, age spots, freckles, and rosacea. It’s commonly used on areas most exposed to the sun; the number of treatment sessions depends on the patient’s condition, skin type, and other factors.


Suited for lighter and darker skin, this acoustical laser helps trigger collagen and stimulate healing to improve skin texture. Treatment is accompanied by a popping sound and wrinkles, freckles, brown spots, and birthmarks can be reduced and removed.


An RF treatment that also addresses collagen production and elasticity. It’s often used on the face, arms, and abdomen and can be used on the eyelids and nasolabial folds. This treatment targets deep layers; each area treated receives an equal amount of coverage.
