Meet Key Members of our Staff
In 1999, Kevin DiCerbo – RN, BSN, LSO, one of the founders of Celibre Medical Corporation needed tattoo removal. Despite scouring the internet and using word of mouth, he was able to find only one practice in the South Bay that was performing laser tattoo removal. So, without any choice, he started the process at this practice.
After numerous treatments, Kevin realized that the experience was not what he had hoped for. There was no anesthetic offered for this very painful procedure, and after 8 treatments, the tattoo was still very much visible. Frustrated, he moved the treatments to another facility, where it was finally completed in early 2003.
By that time, Kevin was contemplating a plan to provide a better experience for consumers getting laser treatments. He met Dr. Harold J. Kaplan, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon in 2003. With Kevin’s vision of a specialty laser dermatology practice and Dr. Kaplan’s previous experience using lasers, Celibre was born. The company opened its doors in 2004 and has been providing high-quality patient care and safe and effective laser and injection services since that time.

Celibre Medical Corporation differs from other medical facilities and medispas that use a “one size fits all” approach to laser dermatology.
Instead of using the same piece of equipment to treat every skin condition, we use over ten different state-of-the-art lasers – each one specifically designed to treat one particular condition. Because we focus on using the most appropriate technology for each condition, we are able to customize a treatment program for your specific situation and deliver outstanding results. Our lasers are state-of-the-art and our medical staff is expertly trained to ensure your safety. In addition, our organization serves as a California board-certified laser training program for nurses and physicians.
Because your complete satisfaction is our goal, we only provide treatments that have proven to be effective. All of our state-of-the-art lasers are FDA approved, and we’ve chosen them solely because of their effectiveness in treating specific skin conditions. Because our lasers are some of the best available in the industry, we consistently exceed our patients’ high expectations. Our injection specialists attend workshops and formal training seminars regularly to ensure that they are providing our patients with the newest and best injection techniques.
