My name is Kelli Van Housen, I have worked in the cosmetic/dermatology field for the last 15 years. Skin is my life, it’s also the largest organ of your body. Taking care of your skin is very important, I take it very seriously. A little history on myself, I grew up in Sunnyvale, CA. I graduated from San Jose State University with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 1993. I also took state boards and became a Registered Nurse. I got married and had three boys while continuing to work as a nurse in many different fields such as family practice, pediatrics, rheumatology, cardiology, surgery, industrial medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, dermatology and telephone advice/triage nursing.
My focus for the last 15 years is cosmetic dermatology and everything that encompasses it. I’m certified in all neurotoxins (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin). I am a certified advanced injector with all dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid including Radiesse, Belotero Balance, all Juvéderm products, all Restylane products and Pollenium Versa. Just because one is certified, doesn’t mean that they are great at it. I feel that I’m highly skilled and artistic in the art of dermal filler injections and Kybella. Let’s face it, it’s first an art, some science thrown in with a lot of passion. I pride myself in keeping your natural look just smoother and less blotchy, and if we’re luck less sagging.
I also love laser technology. I have been using lasers for 15 years as well. Starting with IPL and permanent laser hair reduction treatments. Four laser systems later with upgrades, I’m accomplished in performing treatments such as fractionated C02 laser resurfacing, IPL treatments, permanent laser hair reduction, non-ablative resurfacing, Ultherapy, photodynamic therapy, ND Yag 1064nm, 532nm diode laser, and micro-needling.
I treat uneven skin tone and texture, lentigines (brown spots), rhytids (wrinkles), rosacea, telangiectasis, post excision scars, mom’s scars, acne scars, venous lakes, seborrheic keratosis, sagging skin, pre-jowl sulcus, mental crease and more!
I’m big on home care and maintenance treatments and will walk you through every treatment from start to finish. I’m never really finished though, that might be due to some OCD issues.
