Dr. Suzanne Linsmeier Kilmer is the founding director of the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of Northern California, associate clinical professor at the University of California, Davis and past president of ASLMS. She received her M.D. degree and did her dermatology residency at U.C. Davis Medical Center, then moved east for a one year fellowship in laser surgery at Harvard Medical School’s Wellman Laboratories of Photomedicine. She remained there as a faculty member for two more years researching the use of Q-switched lasers for treatment of tattoos and pigmented lesions. In addition, she was involved in a burn depth diagnosis and debridement study using 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 on UltraPulse skin resurfacing, ruby laser hair removal, and multiple resurfacing studies with the CO2 UltraPulse and erbium lasers. Other landmark studies for which she was principle investigator include pulsed dye laser treatment of wrinkles and scars, picosecond laser treatment of tattoos, hair removal with ruby, alexandrite, diode, and Nd:YAG lasers, and non-ablative resurfacing and tissue tightening with lasers, intense pulsed light and radio-frequency devices. She lectures annually at AAD, ASDS, and ASLMS, as well as at many national and international dermatology meetings. She has published numerous articles and chapters on cutaneous laser surgery, is on the medical advisory board for nine light based device companies, and is currently a reviewer for Laser in Surgery and Medicine, Archives of Dermatology, Dermatologic Surgery and Journal of Cutaneous Laser Surgery. For ASLMS, she served on the standards of training, nominating and finance committees, Board of Directors, laser certification task force, and as laser safety director, vice president and finally as president in 2002-2003. She was the 2009 recipient of the prestigious Ellet Drake lectureship award and was recently elected to the Board of Directors at ASDS. When not playing with photons, she loves to ski, surf, and play games with her husband and 3 children. Doctor Suzanne L. Kilmer recently received a national honor for her work to help patients who have port wine stains.
