5 out of 5 stars Laser Hair Removal

Bikini Laser Hair Removal - La Jolla, CA

The office staff are courteous and professional. Dr. Larsen is a great listener. She took time to understand my concerns. I was really nervous about the procedure/pain and she ensured I had good pain control with topical lidocaine before starting the procedure. I am very happy with the results. I had no pain after the procedure.

5 out of 5 stars IPL

Skin Tone and Sun Spots - La Jolla, CA

Dr. Larsen is a brilliant Dermatologist and a kind-hearted one at that. My skin troubles were cystic acne, sunspots and blotchy skin tone. I work in the fashion industry and there is no room for poor skin. After she listened to my skin concerns and goals, she went over the options clearly. I did everything she suggested and as a result I am now acne free, my skin tone is even and my skin...

5 out of 5 stars Age Spots Treatment

Hand Sun Spots Removal - La Jolla, CA

Dr. Zaleski-Larsen promptly connected with me via phone to better understand my sun spot concerns. After listening patiently, she provided clear and precise recommendations, and had me scheduled for an in-person treatment with her within the same week. She talked me through the procedure (a much needed distraction) as she administered treatment. The experience was painless, comfortable, and swift. I've continued to hear from the doctor as she checks-in on my healing progress.

Dr. Zaleski-Larsen is an outstanding dermatologist. Attentive, well educated, & highly skilled. I was promptly seen and got to see the Dr. Larsen quickly.
