Who We Are

Celebrity Laser Spa & Surgery Center™

Celebrity Laser Spa & Surgery Center (CLS) is the cosmetic surgery office of Dr. Alex Kaplan. We specialize in body contouring, rapid tattoo removal and non-invasive aesthetic treatments.

How We Began
A Family Business

Dr. Kaplan and Ms. Kaplan

The concept for CLS originated years ago, when Dr. Alex Kaplan was a physician volunteer for Homeboy Industries tattoo removal program. This 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 with a single laser and a small number of treatments. They have always been hands-on owners, focused on providing personalized care to their patients. The services and staff of CLS have steadily grown over the years, and now Dr. Kaplan’s Celebrity Laser Spa is one of the most recognized cosmetic surgery offices in southern California.

An Accredited Facility

Celebrity Laser Spa & Surgery Center is an accredited ambulatory surgery center by the Instituted for Medical Quality (IMQ).  That means that Dr. Kaplan and the staff of CLS strive to comply with the highest standards of quality and safety.  Receiving accreditation reflects a lot of work in credentialing, development of standards, quality assurance, infection control, emergency preparedness and environmental safety.
