Celebrity Laser Spa & Surgery Center™

“The office is beautiful, everyone was happy and the vibe was cool.  [CLS] wasn’t anything like the pretentious place in Beverly Hills where I used to go.” Melissa M.

Celebrity Laser Spa & Surgery Center (CLS) is the famed cosmetic surgery office of Dr. Alex Kaplan. We are experts in body contouring, anti-aging and tattoo removal.

How We Began
A Family Business

The Kaplans in our consultation room

Dr. Alex Kaplan was a volunteer with Los Angeles’s “Homeboy Industries” tattoo removal program during his medical residency. This incredible experience, combined with his plastic surgery training, inspired Dr. Kaplan to offer cosmetic treatments to others, using the best available technology. This evolved into the unique concept that everybody deserves a “Celebrity” experience, and CLS was born.

A Family Business

Dr. Alex Kaplan and his wife Amy humbly started this practice in 2005. They have always been hands-on owners, focused on providing personalized care to their patients. The business has steadily grown over the years, and now Celebrity Laser Spa is one of the most recognized cosmetic surgery offices in Southern California.

An Accredited Facility

CLS is unique among medical spas because we are also an ambulatory surgery center, accredited by the Instituted for Medical Quality (IMQ).  That means we comply with the highest standards of quality assurance, infection control, emergency preparedness and safety.
