More info

Dr. Suzanne Linsmeier Kilmer is the Founder of the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Northern California, Clinical Professor at the University of California, Davis and past president of ASLMS. She completed her M.D. degree and dermatology residency at U.C. Davis Medical Center, then moved East for a laser surgery fellowship at Harvard Medical School’s Wellman Laboratories of Photomedicine. She remained at Harvard as a faculty member for two more years, researching the use of Q-switched lasers for treatment of tattoos and pigmented lesions and the rapidly pulsed CO2 lasers now popular for resurfacing.
Upon returning to Sacramento, Dr. Kilmer founded the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Northern California and was a principal investigator in the original trials for laser skin resurfacing, laser hair removal, pulsed dye and fractional lasers for wrinkles and scars, picosecond laser treatment of tattoos, pigmented lesions, acne scars and pico-toning, microwave technology for the treatment of hyperhidrosis, cryolipolysis, tissue tightening and body shaping devices, and several cosmetic injectable studies. She lectures annually at national and international dermatology meetings and directs several laser courses. Widely published and on numerous medical advisory boards, Dr. Kilmer has served on the Board of Directors for ASDS and ASLMS, as well as former President and current Secretary for ASLMS. She was honored to be the 2008 Sturge-Weber Foundation roastee, the 2009 recipient of the prestigious ASLMS Ellet Drake lectureship award and the ASDS 2014 Iron Surgeon. Dr. Kilmer was the recipient of three awards in 2020, including the Vic Narurkar MD, Innovations in Aesthetic Dermatology Lectureship. She also received the prestigious Leon Goldman and Caroline & William Mark Memorial Awards for longitudinal excellence throughout her career from ASLMS, marking the first time a doctor has ever received both awards in one year. Per the ASLMS committee, “most times, when the award committee vote results in one person winning more than one award, they opt to pick the runner-up for one of the awards. This year’s committee all agreed that Dr. Kilmer was the most deserved candidate for both.”
