Bruce J. Sand, MD, FACS

Medical Director

Dr. Sand, Board Certified Ophthalmic and Oculo-Plastic Surgeon, and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, has pioneered many of the laser-based aesthetic processes used in clinical practice today. As an affiliate of the Beckman Laser Institute, University of California at Irvine, Dr. Sand introduced the concepts of laser-based “Non-Ablative Skin Remodeling” and the “Integrated Dynamic Cooling Process” to cosmetic dermatology as co-author of the acclaimed peer-reviewed medical article entitled “Non-Ablative Laser Treatment of Facial Rhytids.”

Dr. Sand set the stage for current (state-of-the-art) medical aesthetic treatments as inventor of the CoolTouch™ Laser System, and patented technologies for Non-Ablative Photothermolysis and Non-Ablative Fractional Photothermolysis. He also introduced the first comprehensive topical and Transepidermal Collagen Biosynthesis formulation for the treatment of pre-mature aging skin.
