Dr. David W. Kim in San Francisco is an internationally acclaimed Facial Plastic Surgeon who uses advanced techniques and procedures that are the safest and most successful.


Skin Rejuvenation Treatments


CosmoPen micro needling stimulates the body’s production of new collagen for healthier looking skin. It is a minimally invasive treatment that treats a variety of skin imperfections, including acne, scars, wrinkles and stretch marks. Unlike the traditional resurfacing techniques, micro needling appears to have the benefit of less downtime, less risk and real results.
The procedure itself is fast, nearly painless and relatively inexpensive making it a popular choice amongst our patients. We recommend a series of 3-6 treatments, spaced one to two weeks apart. Treatments are tailored to the patients’ individual goals and patients can resume regular social activities within a day or two. We encourage patients to resume skin care with gentle hypoallergenic products and sun protection immediately. Ideally, we want patients to use a growth factor such as Skin Medica TNS.

Vitalize Peel

Vitalize Peel is a safe, effective and gentle chemical peel for treatment of acne, suitable for all skin types. It combinines a unique blend of Retinoic Acid and Alpha Hydroxy Acids with Resorcinol.
